Description of buildings

The property comprises two farmhouses: the larger one, with a commercial surface area of approx. 913 sqm, is divided into three flats (one of which still needs to be finished) and a storeroom; the smaller farmhouse, with a commercial surface area of approx. 279 sqm, is divided into two flats and a separate tool shed.


Flat 1: kitchen, living room, dining room, storeroom, laundry room, 5 bedrooms (of which one in the tower), cloakroom, 6 bathrooms, loft.
Flat 2: kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms.
Flat 3: kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.
Flat 4: kitchen, living room, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom.
Flat 5: kitchen/living room, 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms.


Each flat has its own individual character thanks to original features, such as the three beautiful arched windows facing south, in what was originally a pigsty, or the large, metal-framed glass revolving door (4 metres high) made by a local blacksmith, for what was once the entrance to a barn and now leads from a living room to a terrace. The result is a graceful modernity that blends harmoniously with typical finishes.


The surface area is calculated on the basis of the net floor area including internal partitions and increased by 10% for load-bearing walls.

State and finishing

The property is unique, not only for its beautiful hillside location, surrounded by fields and woods, but also for the great care with which it has been restored, preserving unique and interesting details in every corner.

The estate is first mentioned in documents from 1750 and, until the mid-19th century, the original farmhouse and most of the surrounding land belonged to the Benedictine monastery of San Pietro, in nearby Perugia. With the unification of Italy, the land and buildings came under the control of the Fondazione Agraria.
The second farmhouse was built in the early 20th century and La Tenuta del Monastero remained a working farm until the departure of the last farming family in 1982, after which it remained unused for many years.

In 2005, the property was declared an Italian historical heritage site.

The current owners fell in love with the property and spent 15 years restoring the property with passion and energy, using local materials and techniques and renovating in the most sustainable way possible, through reuse and conversion. The result is a harmonious fusion of ancient and modern.

External areas

The Tenuta del Monastero is surrounded by approximately 1.5 hectares of land.
Access to the property is via a private driveway at the end of which there is parking for several cars.
The garden is a delightful mix of formally landscaped areas, wisteria-covered pergolas, large trees and small fields.
The infinity pool (15 m x 5 m x 1.4 m) is lined with the same blue and grey stone as the surrounding solarium.
Located in a private position, it offers a splendid view of the fields and wooded hills with the river, not far away, acting as a soundtrack.
Next to the pool is a veranda, a small open-air kitchen and a changing room with toilets.

Each flat has a private outdoor space, perfect for outdoor dining.

Use and potential uses

The property is an incredible place, not only for its splendid hillside position, surrounded by fields and woods, and ideal for visiting the main historical centres of central Italy, but also for the great care with which it has been restored, preserving unique and interesting details in every corner.
Thanks to the presence of 5 flats, it is perfect for those who are looking for a place to live and at the same time create a high-level tourist accommodation business.
