About the Property
4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10-12
The village of Penna: 5-10 minutes' walk up a shady lane is the flourishing village of Penna (population 1000), equipped with post office, bank, parish church, pharmacy, and shops in a thriving community of local people of all generations active in the agricultural and civic life of their village. The calendar year is studded with festivals, such as the open air banquet to celebrate the vendemmia (or grape harvest) in mid-October, outdoor music and dancing for the village holiday in early August, streets strewn with flowers for the Corpus Domini in June. Penna’s tiny historical center, in the shape of a feather (hence its name) is anchored between the very active parish church and the belvedere (panoramic overlook on the Tiber river valley and Mount Cimino beyond). The town also boasts an impressive mechanical Presepe (Nativity Scene) open to visits all year round.
An Umbrian family story: The villa is on a working farm (olives and grapes), that has been in our family for almost two centuries. The historic family home is close by, in the village.
The adjacent 'limonaia' houses potted lemon trees in the winter, ping-pong in the summer. The apartment above the limonaia is not for rent and is occasionally occupied by the owners.
This is the authentic Italy, far from its mass tourism and yet in easy range of so many of its legendary beauties.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

On the border with Lazio, the villa stands at the gateway of all the Umbrian hilltowns (Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Narni, Gubbio), but also an easy distance from the volcanic Etruscan towns of Viterbo and Tarquinia and the Tuscan seaside (Capalbio, Ansedonia, the island of Giglio). It is also close to the Appenines and river rafting on the Nera near the waterfalls of Marmore, some of the highest in Europe. Because of the vicinity of the Orte train station (15 minutes' away by car) Rome and Florence are easy daytrips -- without the worry of a car.
Year Purchased: 1860
About the owner: The family has been in the village since at least the 19th century. The old family house is in the town, outside the village walls. The villa was built with the stones of the ruined sharecropper's house in 2006.
Why the Owner Chose Penna In Teverina TR, Italy:
The villa has made it possible to experience in comfort the perfect beauty and tranquillity of this spot on what was a traditional Umbrian farm.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The vicinity to Rome (45 minutes by train from the station of Orte, 15 minutes away by car; or 1.5 hours by car on the Autostrada) makes this peaceful hideaway remarkably accessible. It is also close to all the famous hilltowns. Penna itself has very few tourists. The beautiful, natural-looking pool means it is never too hot.
