Charming Apartment Located Just Outside The Ring Wall Of Castello Di Montegiove.

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Nov-2016
Sleeps 2. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.

Montegiove is a lovely and peaceful medieval country village, close to the main communication lines and equidistant of Rome (154 km) and Florence (151 km), an ideal base for exploring the historical treasures of Umbria and Tuscany, such as Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto, Perugia and Siena.

The apartment is equipped with satellite television, high speed Internet connection, independent heating, laundry facilities and drying rack. The house is furnished in the traditional style of a central Italian manor house with a tasteful combination of antique and modern furniture.

The rental includes heating, weekly change of sheets and towels, normal final cleaning and taxes.

The castle of Montegiove has existed since the early 12th century and has in the last four centuries been the property of the Marchesi Misciattelli.

Today, still family-owned, it is the centre of an estate covering nearly 3000 acres of beautiful Umbrian countryside, where oak forests, vineyards, olive fields and arable land blend in total harmony with ancient dry walls and farmhouses built of local stone.

The principal products of the estate are wine, olive oil, cereals, oil seeds, Chianina beef cattle, forage and forest products. There is abundant wildlife such as boar and deer, and the local flora including truffles and mushrooms.

During your stay in Montegiove you will get the opportunity to be the Misciattelli family's private guest and get a guided tour in the winecellar, at the castle and the surrounding estate.

About the Owner

In 2002 we moved from Copenhagen in Denmark, where we both grew up, to Montegiove to take over the daily management of the family estate “Castello di Montegiove”. We have never regretted this decision, even though the first years in Montegiove were not at all like a fairytale. The castle had to be completely restored; the roofs all had big holes so we spent all rainy days running around with pots and pans to pick up the water. Today the castle has been through a thorough and respectful renovation. Lorenzo: I spent almost all my childhood summers together with my grandfather in Montegiove, following daily life at the estate and in the wine cellar. I still recall adventuring round in the castle and walks in the splendid and unspoiled nature around Montegiove. I always hoped, that one day, I could take care of the estate, and that happened after years of study at the “Royal Veterinarian and Agricultural University” and the “University of Aberdeen” ending up with a Ph.D. and a short carrier as scientist and assistant professor, before moving to Italy. Rikke: I worked with pattern making and designs in the fashion industry before moving to Italy. My big passion is decorating and putting things in order so moving to a place like this where everything needed a loving hand has been a fantastic challenge for me. Today I am the practical person in the household making all ends meet for our busy modern family. We still feel so lucky waking up in the morning and looking out at the beautiful valley, and we are never getting tired of the absolute silence and peace that is so rare to find in the modern world of today. Sometimes the clouds are hanging lower than Montegiove and it feels like we are on an island in the middle of the sea.

A lovely apartment in a beautiful, scenic location.

  • 5 of 5

La Cassetta is a small, but attractive apartment in a lovely, rural part of Umbria. Although the kitchen area is small, it is well equipped. Everything is newly decorated to a high standard and very clean. The apartment is located right next to the owners' castle and only a short, pleasant stroll to a fantastic infinity pool. The hosts, Lorenzo and Rikke, were excellent, treating us more like house guests than customers. Complementary wine and a few essentials made a lovely start to our time there.

We would definitely recommend this and hope to return before long.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely. The kitchen has everything you will need, the bathroom is fresh and well appointed. The bed is a little creaky but very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome and really enjoyed the castle tour and wine tasting. The whole apartment was very clean and a cot and high chair was provided for our 2 year old. We felt that the apartment was safe for our toddler. The WIFI was very good considering where this place is. The pool is very nice, it is almost a 10 minute walk away but this really didn't bother us at all as its a lovely walk around the castle with fabulous views. We were allowed to stay an extra night without any fuss and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. A beautiful, interesting and comfortable place to stay. We would highly recommend. Thank you very much Rikke and Lorenzo.
