And apart from its exceptionally charming appearance the property has many other great things going for it:
Though not much else is known of its exact history we know the building dates back to about 1300. It may have been part of a small fortress which would certainly explain the fairytale turret which is visible even from the valley below. This key feature is situated at the corner of a gigantic stone wall which frames two original and so quite ancient wooden doors. They seem a gateway to the past but entrance gives access to a wonderful and ample terrace between the house and the view.
The more formal main entrance to the house would be from a staircase leading up from the dead-end road below. It opens into a hallway which leads into the ground floor living room followed by a dining room with fire place. Both the living room and dining area boast vaulted ceilings. The next space is the kitchen and then a hallway which leads to a ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Two additional spaces, a cantina and storage space can easily be converted into spacious walk-in closets. A really big advantage is that the living, hallway and bedroom are all directly connected to the terrace so it’s easy to enjoy the outdoors around the clock.
The first floor can be reached via an absolutely splendid old stone internal staircase. At the top to the left the house is connected with the lovely lush garden behind it. To the right lies another spacious room, which can be a music room, studio, tv room or secondary sitting room. Its fireplace is adorned with a recuperated ancient wooden frame and the space gives access to the beautiful loggia. On one side lies a large bedroom which in the past used as art studio. A large attic and spacious bathroom give it potential as an independent guest unit. On the other side of the landing lie a third bedroom, bathroom and single room which can work perfectly as very comfortable walk-in closet space. Also these two first floor bed room have independent access from the loggia.
From this colonnade one can enjoy the playful view which ranges from the distant Monti Martani to the vineyards of Montefalco and Bevagna, to the city of Foligno below and nearby cypresses and woodlands. The loggia is directly connected with the terrace via an external staircase.
In front of the house the large terraced area (approx. 150 sqm) offers more than plenty of space for all kinds of use and definitely entertaining. Breakfast, coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner, and aperitivi, intimately or with family and friends, this is the place to be. Sheltered by the house this location can be used whenever the sun is out, but also during warm summer nights below the starry sky.
Large Marine pines hoover over the garden (approx. 350 sqm) which is build in two levels. Fruit and olive trees line the lawn, and a carport provides shade for two cars. The garden is accessible from the little road leading past the tower and wooden gate. It is for sure a perfect place during hot summer days and for drinks and meals “a fresco”. In addition the green oasis still offers plenty of potential to explore, a vegetable garden, water feature, pergola can all delightful extra’s to enjoy.
Treggio is a tiny village in the hills between Foligno and the enchanting tourist magnet Spello, both at 6 km distance with all amenities you can think of. From the valley below a winding roads leads up through olive groves and ends at the cluster of houses. Beyond the village the countryside consists of more olive groves and woodland, great to explore on foot or mountain bike. The setting is one of nature, views, peace and tranquility.
The location of Treggio is a very strategic for anyone who likes to visit the other local attractions like famous Assisi (17 km) or postcard picture ready Trevi (19 km). Both Perugia (40 km) and Spoleto are known for their international music (jazz) festivals whereas Perugia is also home to the university for foreigners and the nearest international airport.
