Brief description

In panoramic location between Todi and Montecastello di Vibio, medieval village with church and annexes, in need of full restoration. Measures 975.7 sq.m in total. Surrounded by 5.6 ha of land, with around half of that being a fertile olive grove.

Geographic position

Borgo del Priore is situated in a panoramic, hilly location, on a little hill between Todi and Montecastello di Vibio (both around 6 km away) which can be seen in the distance.

The nearest town, for daily amenities and purchases, is just 4 km away (5 minutes’ drive) and, thanks to the junction with the E45 motorway (also 4 km away), you can get to Perugia (40 km) and its airport (44 km) in around half an hour.

The motorway also makes it fast and easy to get to Rome (132 km - an hour and a half’s drive) and Florence (168 km - 2 hours) and their airports: Rome Ciampino (149 km) and Rome Fiumicino (168 km) are an hour and three quarters away and Florence airport (202 km) is a little over two hours.

Description of buildings

The main complex, built around a central courtyard with a well in the middle, comprises the church and a number of buildings around it, which originally housed the main residence and agricultural buildings.

The complex measures around 740 sq.m in total, mainly on the ground and first floors, with a smaller part on the second floor.

 

Close by, there are a further three buildings, used as stables, storehouses etc. also requiring restoration:

Building 1 - measures around 150 sq.m in total, with two floors;

Building 2 - measures around 59 sq.m in total;

Building 3 - measures around 19 sq.m in total.

 

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 any eventual staircases may only be calculated once.

State and finishing

All the buildings need to be completely restored.

The property, which is situated on the old medieval road, is of ancient origins. Its appearance is reminiscent of the medieval “curtes,” or social centre, with its traditional circular structure comprising the church and other buildings (including a dovecote tower) used as the main house and as storage for agricultural equipment.

The church was probably one of the very first Christian buildings in the area, and would have been incredibly important, up until it became the Priory church in the 13th century.

The village was originally built with a clearly defensive purpose, and outdoor activity would have been limited. Over the years, the medieval tower lost its defensive features and was extended and surrounded by annexes, which likely date from different periods.

External areas

Borgo del Priore is surrounded by 5.6 hectares of private land, around half of which is a fertile olive grove.

Use and potential uses

Thanks to its location in the heart of Umbria, in an area which is very popular with national and international tourists, and its size, this property would be perfect as a high-end hotel, or as an impressive luxury residence.
