The Difference



As one of Italy’s leading Eco-sustainable Aristocratic Vacation Villa Resort:

-Le Torri di Bagnara Castles cater to the most discriminating travelers – those who require the privacy, comfort and independence of a real home with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

-Our aristocratic holiday homes are authentic medieval Historic Houses. Historic Houses are classified as State listed cultural assets and are prestigious residences, true historical and cultural heritage of Italy.
There is the hillside luxurious Pieve San Quirico Castle (7 bedrooms Main House), built by emperor Frederick the II of Swabia, and the nearby hilltop watch Tower (8 bedrooms Guest House). Another medieval Castle – the magnificent Castello di Bagnara –  set within the valley, is available as a weddings and special events venue (it does not feature accommodation).

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

-Our Castle-villas have a Tourist Accommodation License (luxury Agriturismo), so are entitled by law to host paying guests. This guarantees our Guests a superior degree of safety and security standards that have to be complied with by law.

Unlike 90% of the properties in the Italian home vacation
market that are merely private houses.

-Our castle-homes can be booked as a Self- Catering or as a “Villa Hotel”: all the services of a grand-hotel are available on request.

-Our Concierge team can customize your vacation. A local expert will be at your disposal to design a tailor-made program of activities and excursions, plan easy access to concerts & events, golf, wineries and much more.

Eco-Sustainability is part of daily life here: energy comes from our 140 kWh PV Solary Energy systems, we harvest rain water to irrigate the fields and our pools are cleaned with sea salt; we use environmentally friendly cleaning products and practice daily a careful differentiated collection of waste. We serve seasonal, traditional, fresh food locally grown in our farm and in other selected Umbrian farms and we focus on local cuisine. We are constantly working to improve the property with renewable energies, recycling, water treatment, organic fertilizer, and sustainable agriculture.

-Our castle-homes are in the centre of a 1500 acre (590 hectare),  very private estate and nature reserve, with a working farm. A huge green heaven at our Guests full disposal that provides full privacy, superb opportunities for walking and biking, mushrooms and truffle hunting, wildlife watching and photography, doing meditation and yoga, delicious locally grown food and much more.

-Our castle-homes are managed, staffed and maintained by the owners.

-The owners are a real noble family descended from emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and they own the whole estate since 1901. They do not merely offer a property for rent but they are proud to personally welcome all Guests and give a five-star aristocratic hospitality.

Since 1901, this exceptional estate, located near Assisi, has been owned by the Counts Giunta Tremi, a noble family descended from Napoleon Bonaparte via his oldest brother, Joseph, and through a younger brother, Lucien. Today, beautiful Zenaide Giunta, named for her great-great grandmother, owns and operates the estate. Commenting on the Pieve Castle Villa, she said, “This is not a simple house rental, but a life experience that speaks to all the senses and that grandparents, parents and children take away with them.”



Luxury spaces

We invest hundreds of thousands of euros in our castle-homes and in our huge estate every year. This guarantees high-end furnishings, luxurious linens, chef-worthy kitchens with everything you need, impressive gardens, glorious outdoor living areas and many fun features.


Having a Tourist Accommodation license guarantees a superior degree of safety and security standards that have to be complied with by law. This means that the whole property, the house and the pool are authorized by law to host paying guests. All the systems (electricity, heating, hot water, air conditioned, kitchen, pool equipment,…) have to comply with legal standards and are subject to regular inspections and maintenance. A special broad Insurance (Civil Liability) is requested by Law to protect guests, staff, and property. All the staff working at Le Torri di Bagnara is legally employed and has to attend training courses imposed by law (health&safety, first aid, HACCP,…).

“The Torri di Bagnara property is the definition of luxurious. The staff became family and the 1,500 acres of land blew our breaths away. Every day was filled with excitement and pure bliss”.
