Geographic position

Casa D'Artista is an old outpost built around a 13th-century castle located in a small village.

This village still preserves the outer circular walls with square and cylindrical towers. The dwellings are arranged in a concentric way in a labyrinth of narrow roads.

This picturesque village overlooks the woods and cultivated fields of the green valley with the Martani mountains on the background.


The nearest built-up areas, where you can go for your everyday errands, are Melezzole (3 km), which is 5 minutes away by car whereas Castel dell'Aquila (8 km) and Avigliano Umbro (11 km) are less than fifteen minutes away.

We are also halfway Umbria’s major cities. In thirty minutes, you can reach Todi (25 km) and Narni (30 km). In forty-five minutes, you can be in Orvieto (37 km) and in one hour in Perugia (65 km).

Casa D’Artista is comfortable and easy to reach even from Rome (110 km, meaning about one hour and a half).


The property is also close to CET (Centro Europeo di Toscolano), a music centre of excellence and a non-profit association created by Mogol (one of Italy’s greatest songwriters) that aims at training and enhancing the value of new music professionals.


The nearest airport is Perugia S. Egidio (at 70 km, meaning one hour and a half by car) whereas Rome’s international airports of Ciampino and Fiumicino are 126 km and 142 km away, respectively (less than two hours).

Description of buildings

This property develops over three floors and has a net saleable area of 266 sq.m.


As soon as you enter the building, you’ll find on the left a large living area, the dining room with a fireplace, the kitchen, a storage room and a bathroom. The technical room is on the right, and in the front, there is the staircase that leads to the upper floors.

Both the living room and the dining room have access to the outside. This way, the main entrance could be used exclusively for the upper floors.


The first floor includes a small triangular study on the right and a hallway on the left that leads to the other rooms: a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a large fireplace, a small terrace and a large living/TV room. This warm and elegant room is also luminous thanks to two windows, one of which opens to another small terrace.

From the living room, you can access the second bedroom, the bathroom, the hallway and the staircase that leads to the second floor.


The second floor has the same layout as the first floor. A triangular study that gives access to a third small terrace that overlooks the village’s roofs, a large living room with a fireplace, two bedrooms (one of which has a fireplace) and two bathrooms.


The measurements provided indicate the liveable surface area.
The liveable surface area is the same as the walkable surface area (which includes internal walls) plus 10% to take into account supporting walls.
The surface area occupied by stairs may only be calculated once.
