PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Set among the lush hills covered by olive groves and woods overlooking the Umbrian Valley is Casa degli Oleandri, an elegant residence born from the complete restoration of an old farmhouse. Enhancing it with top quality antique furniture and objects together with details and furnishings of modern design. All this contributes in giving the house its unique charm, accentuated by the garden with the outdoor dining area, the terrace and pool overlooking the entire valley.

From the main entrance on the ground floor, between the portico and the panoramic terrace, you accede to a large living room divided into sitting area with elegant stone fireplace and dining area.

Where you’ll be

Foligno, Umbria, Italy

Casa degli Oleandri stands in a strategic geographic location, just 5 km from Foligno, a town steeped in history but, at the same time, very lively and “in”, the richest and most important centre of the Umbrian Valley, defined, by old tradition, the “centre of the world”, being, in fact, in the centre of the Italian peninsula and, in turn, in the centre of Europe and the Mediterranean. The famous medieval towns of Assisi, Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello, Trevi and Spoleto are less than 30 minutes away by car along the highway which is just a few kilometres from the house, with their noble palaces and courtyards, their town walls, churches, monasteries, fortresses and towers in a mix of natural and artistic beauty, evoking ancient, spiritual fascination. Just 40 minutes away is Perugia, the regional capital, about an hour or so away are Siena and Civitanova Marche (a town on the Adriatic Sea) and finally Rome and Florence, about two hours away; all places easily accessible by train from Foligno Station (7 km). To appreciate the territory from the environmental and landscape profile of this fertile valley with its many rivers and hills studded with olive trees and vines, it is worth venturing into the extraordinary tablelands of Castelluccio and Norcia, the beautiful Valnerina where nature reigns supreme and the Sibillini mountains, overflowing with myths and legends. For aficionados of wine and food tours we are in the area where the typical Sagrantino grape is cultivated, where the renowned Rosso di Montefalco and the precious Extra Virgin Olive Oil DOP with its typical fruity aroma are produced. A visit to the many artisanal workshops of ceramics, wrought iron, embroidery and weaving is a must to discover the value of the traditions of the past, the manual dexterity able to preserve old production methods, handed down from generation to generation. Finally, for those looking for relaxing holidays, the Terme Francescane in Spello, just a 15 minute drive away, offer not only relaxing treatments but also aesthetic and therapeutic ones. Supermarket and bars, open also on Sunday morning, are in San Paolo (700 m); you will find other services and shops in Foligno (2 km).
