Letter from the Owners

DON’T RENT A VILLA, RENT A FULLY STAFFED CASTLE – THE ULTIMATE ITALIAN HOLIDAY – AND FILL IT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

Enjoy the comfort and authenticity of a luxury home rental with the service and amenities of a grand hotel.
Experience the ultimate bespoke  holiday: nothing can compare to the opulence, heritage and historic appeal of calling a true castle “your home”.

WELCOME TO YOUR HOME IN ITALY!

We would like to be the very first to welcome you to the unspoiled, pristine paradise of the Northern Tiber Valley in Umbria,  the green heart of Italy, 20 min drive to Assisi & Tuscany, mid-way between Florence & Roma.  The Tenuta di Bagnara – a 1500 acre very private estate and nature reserve dotted with 5 medieval castles, small lakes and a working farm – is a slice of this heaven and belongs to my family since 1901.

One castle and a standing tower are offered as fully staffed luxury villas and another castle as an exclusive venue for weddings and special events.

WHY A LUXURY HOME RENTAL?

Staying in private vacation homes is one of the most enjoyable ways to visit a new country. The facilities and amenities on offer match those provided by the luxury hotels and resorts, yet come with the added advantage of absolute privacy and exclusivity. There’s no competing for sunbed space or making table reservations.

Le Torri di Bagnara - Castello Pieve San Quirico - Pool

Comfort and ease are guaranteed with each guest’s individual needs met without fuss or delay. Well-trained, unobtrusive staff ensure the villas are perfectly maintained and kept spotlessly clean, while a personal villa manager is on-hand to answer questions and meet requests throughout the stay.

Holiday villas are a very suitable and practical accommodation choice for families, friends, reunions, small parties, small conferences, destination weddings, long term holidays,…. A holiday villa can make a great reunion meeting place for family and friends who live in different parts of the world.

WHY A CASTLE?

Nothing can compare to the opulence, heritage and historic appeal of calling a true castle “your home”.

WHY US?

Our luxury castles were renovated to enjoy as an exclusive Umbria & Tuscany villa vacation resort. The result is that our holiday rental is designed perfectly for large, diverse family reunions, groups of friends, destination weddings, small corporate groups, yoga retreats, small parties and generally for any group of people who want to stay together during their holidays.

Found in the lush greenery of the Umbrian countryside, this noble family owned property with its luxury décor will make you feel like nobility of centuries past, but at the same time with all the typical amenities and staff services you might expect from a luxury hotel.

Both the hilltop Pieve San Quirico Castle (the main house) and the nearby medieval Tower are uniquely designed and furnished providing the comfort and immediate relaxation we all feel when we “come home.”

Down in the valley, the magnificent Castello di Bagnara is a palatial events space, ideal for destination weddings or other very special occasions.

Both our castles have received authorization by the City of Perugia to celebrate on-site legally valid civil marriages.

THE 1500-ACRE ESTATE & NATURE RESERVE

To top it off, the huge estate provides superb opportunities for walking and biking, mushrooms and truffle hunting, wildlife watching and photography, doing meditation and yoga.

Blessed with a large variety of wild flowers, ancient trees, small lakes, several streams, 13 km of the Tiber river (Italy’s second main river, the river of Roma!), a resident population of roe deer and hares and a wide range of bird species from herons to pheasants, the estate is a haven for all things bright and beautiful.

STAFF
