Old stone farmhouse with tower and annex building set in 22 ha of land
Casale del Menotre, an old stone farmhouse with tower and annex building, is situated on a 22-ha estate located in the Menotre valley in Umbria, about 3 km from a village and 10 km from the town of Sellano. The property is accessible via a 100 meter private road along the Menotre River, which crosses through the estate and gives its name to the valley. A wooden bridge leads to the gardens with several relaxation areas around the houses. The 22 hectares of land are mainly woodland (11.7 ha), whereas the rest is pasture and arable land containing various fruit trees (hazel nut, cherry, walnut, prune, apple,…). The main house, with likely medieval origin, has maintained its unique character, such as original stone and terra cotta floors, ceilings with wooden beams and terra cotta tiles, a beautiful porphyry staircase and several impressive fireplaces. Close to the main farmhouse there is second house used for guest accommodation. The area is green and pristine and truly evocative of the so-called “green heart of Italy”, and is positioned at around 650 m above sea level. The stunning Colfiorito plateau, with its magnificent natural park is a 15 minute drive, and the Monti Sibillini National Park is just 30 minutes away. The Adriatic coast of Civitanova Marche in the south and Riviera del Conero in the north can be reached in one hour by car with the new highway Foligno–Macerata.
