Geographic position

Villa Butterfly is a period residence for sale in a pretty village, just 6 km from Spoleto. The location is convenient and panoramic, with the garden overlooking the valley where you can enjoy the magnificent view of the hills.


The property, which is on the outskirts of the village, comprises a large building partially used as accommodation (770 sq.m approx.) and partially used as storage and cellars (796 sq.m approx.) which could also be converted into accommodation, plus a garage of 43 sq.m approx and the 5,600 sq.m garden, where there is a wood-burning oven and two porches measuring 26 and 31 sq.m approx.

The villa is just 5 minutes from Spoleto and central in relation to some of Umbria’s other famous cities (Trevi 19 km, Spello 32 km, Assisi 44 km, Todi 50 km and  Perugia 60 km), with Perugia’s airport just half an hour’s drive away.

Description of buildings

The part of Villa Butterfly which is used as accommodation has two floors, and a total surface area of approximately 770 sq.m.

From the main entrance on the first floor, on the left, there is a living room with fireplace and the kitchen and on the right, a large dining room with another sitting room.

Also from the entrance, a staircase takes you to the floor above into a large hallway where the three separate areas of the villa meet.


In the area above the first floor there is: in the left wing, a studio and a bedroom with bathroom; in the right wing, a living room, a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a little sitting room (with access to a small hallway with a bridge connecting to the building next door, and a storage area), the master bedroom with terrace onto the garden, a further bedroom and the bathroom.


From the hallway, there is also access to a small studio, which leads to another impressive living space. This studio is above another bridge which connects to another building. The impressive living area comprises double drawing room, studio, library and three sitting/living rooms.

This part of the residence has its own separate entrance: on the ground floor there is the entrance hall and two cellars.


The property also features some areas currently used as storage and cellars, which require restoration and could potentially be made into accommodation.

The total surface area of this space is around 796 sq.m over three floors, plus a 43 sq.m garage and a storeroom on the basement floor, measuring 55 sq.m, accessible via a staircase between two pretty porches in the garden. 

State and finishing

Villa Butterfly was built in the second half of the 1600s and today you can still see some aspects of the original building, such as the bridge connecting the main living space with the impressive living area and with the storerooms, which used to connect the actual residence with the artisans’ studios, the stables which housed the horses and carriages, with the cellars and the mill.

The parts of the villa used for accommodation are in good condition, as they have been restored over the years and have had both structural and decorative work done.

The ceilings are wooden, original and some decorative, the floors are tiled, large parts of the walls are frescoed and the internal doors are decorated. 

External areas

Villa Butterfly has about 5,600 sq.m of private land, which is raised from the road providing privacy and a panoramic view.

Inside, there is a paved courtyard, areas with lawn and tall trees, two porches where you can sit outside when the weather is nice, the wood-burning oven and a pretty walkway shaded by a pergola covered in plants, which leads to a large meadow. 

Use and potential uses

Villa Butterfly is ideal as a main residence or as a holiday home, thanks to its convenient and accessible location just 5 minutes from Spoleto, one of Umbria’s most important historic centres, and an ideal starting point for day trips and excursions to Umbria and Tuscany’s main art cities.

It would be possible to restore the area currently used as cellars and storage and convert it into accommodation or into small apartments, making the property an interesting opportunity for those wishing to run a tourism business in one of Central Italy’s best-loved regions.
