Modern architecture in 14th century palazzo between Perugia and Orvieto
For lovers of modern architecture in 14th century walls, this palazzo is certainly an experience and sets high standards with many impressive details. The spacious layout on three living levels offers a high living comfort, bright rooms, terrace areas and access both to a garden with pool, and to the piazza of the place. With a southern orientation, both the palazzo and the garden get plenty of sun and the unspoilt location allows the observer's gaze to wander over a beautiful Umbrian landscape. During the renovation, which was completed in 2016, the building was extensively gutted, renovated and brought up to the latest building standards, taking into account all static and seismic requirements as well as energy efficiency. Most impressive, however, are the architectural and decorative elements, which were realized very carefully with great taste and attention to detail. You enter the Palazzo through its main entrance from the piazza on the middle residential level and enter a very beautiful reception room with fireplace. From there you have access to a balcony (with enough space for a table and chairs) from where you can overlook the garden and enjoy the panoramic landscape. A guest toilet is also accessible from the reception room. To the right there is a large dining room, also with a fireplace, and from there you reach a spacious and fully equipped kitchen, a bedroom and a staircase down to the garden floor. The bedroom on this level is currently used as a studio and offers optimal possibilities for this. A staircase in the reception room leads to the upper floor with an impressive large living room with another fireplace and two bedrooms (one with wardrobe), each with its own bathroom. On the garden floor, which can be reached as described from the dining room via an internal staircase, there are also two further entrances, one from the village and one from the garden. There you will find the oldest part of the building (14th century) with typical arches and vaulted ceilings in terracotta, wall niches and an antique and functioning pizza and bread oven. A spacious utility room houses both the technical equipment and a laundry room. The central main room was designed as a tavern, but can also be used for other purposes, such as a home cinema or a billiard table. A further room, which is currently used as a guest bedroom, a bathroom and a small kitchenette complete this floor. The garden has been laid out in terraces and offers various seating, trees, flower beds and a small pool for refreshment in summer. The very picturesque village has little infrastructure, but a very nice restaurant.
