General description

  • Main home
The ‘Casa degli Orizzonti’ is situated in between olive plantations, apricot, almond, cherry, plums, wallnut trees, pines, cypresses, vineyards and fields of sunflowers. It is located about 1 km from Monte Castello di Vibio, a typical Italian Umbrian medieval village built on a hill top. The view of the river Tiber and the medieval city of Tody nearby and the all surroundings with etruscan sites, have inspired poets and painters for centuries.
The environment guarantees a high level of privacy. No roads, no neighbours nearby, and cars have to be parked about 50mt from the house up hill. The village is 10 min. walk from the house (700mt.) where major facilities like shops, bakery, post office, bank, bar and restaurant are available. There are cultural events performed in the piazzas and in the “smallest theatre of the world”, and art-classes for painting and music are offered.
Monte Castello is well connected by buses and train, also to large cities like Perugia, Firenze, Rome and Napoli. Therefore, car is not essential.
