Chiesa del Carmine is the ancient church at the heart of the Carmine Estate, located in the heart of Umbria, only 20 minutes north of the cosmopolitan city of Perugia and close to the borders of Tuscany. Carmine estate is privately owned and has been lovingly restored over the last 5 years by the present owners. What was once an abandoned valley is now a thriving farm including an ancient olive grove, 5 hectares of red and white grapes, a truffle wood and pasture, producing a variety of organic produce. It is located at the foot of Monte Tezio in a protected valley, where the wildlife is abundant and nature is thriving. The views from all aspects are stunning. To the south is Monte Subasio and the town of Assisi, to the west the ancient castle of Antognolla and to the north woodlands and...Chiesa del Carmine is the ancient church at the heart of the Carmine Estate, located in the heart of Umbria, only 20 minutes north of the cosmopolitan city of Perugia and close to the borders of Tuscany. Carmine estate is privately owned and has been lovingly restored over the last 5 years by the present owners. What was once an abandoned valley is now a thriving farm including an ancient olive grove, 5 hectares of red and white grapes, a truffle wood and pasture, producing a variety of organic produce. It is located at the foot of Monte Tezio in a protected valley, where the wildlife is abundant and nature is thriving. The views from all aspects are stunning. To the south is Monte Subasio and the town of Assisi, to the west the ancient castle of Antognolla and to the north woodlands and the mountains ranges of the Appenines. Chiesa del Carmine is a stunning 11th century church and 18th century farm house and has been restored along with its adjoining farmhouse into an simple but elegant 14 bed country house; with precise attention to detail and use of the very best of local materials, producing accommodation of outstanding quality. The house nestles amoungst hills in a peaceful valley, surrounded by meadows, woods, vineyards and olive groves. It is reached via a ‘strada bianca’ – white (unmade) road – and is approximately 1 kilometre from the main road. The views from the church and house are beautiful. There is an atmosphere of peace and quiet although the property is not isolated. The property is divided into two structures, the first the ancient church and the second the farm house. ANCIENT CHURCH The main church area has been restored to the exact proportion of the original, together with a recently discovered small crypt. It is a magnificent room, imposing in its sense of peace and history. It is furnished with comfortable sofas and a grand piano, and is wonderful for relaxation, yoga or meditation. It is also a good entertainment space. The large floor to ceiling glass window provides a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. Off this main room is a dining room, able to seat 14. The kitchen is located at the front on this property. It is very well equipped and includes a double oven and 6 gas hobs, dishwasher, microwave, espresso maker and large fridge/freezer. There is also a kitchen table and chairs. A toilet (suitable for disabled) is located here. The kitchen leads onto outdoor dining terraces with barbeque facilities, each providing shade during the day. FARMHOUSE The farmhouse is a beautiful restored large building on two levels, surrounded by terraces and located across a small courtyard from the church. The main entrance has an arched hallway with stone staircases that lead to both the ground and first floor. The ground floor Bedroom 1 is a double bedroom that is suitable for handicapped use; it has its own terrace and an ensuite bathroom with shower. Bedroom 2 is a double bedroom, with its own stone terrace; it has an ensuite bathroom with shower. Bedroom 3 is a large double bedroom, with a terrace. The ensuite bathroom has a shower and free-standing bath, with lovely views down the valley. There is also a small room with a day bed, wash-hand basin, small fridge and kettle, usable as a kitchen or further small bedroom. In addition there is a laundry with washing machine, tumble dryer, clothes dryer and sink. First floor Stone stairs from the vaulted hallway lead to the first floor where there are 4 further bedrooms and an additional sitting room. Bedroom 4, the master bedroom, has an ensuite bathroom with shower. There is a large fireplace, private terrace and outdoor stairs, giving it its own entrance. Bedroom 5 is a double room with ensuite bathroom with shower. Bedroom 6 is similar to 5, but has a bathroom right next to it which can also be used by guests using the sitting room. Bedroom 7 is a charming small room with a single bed and its own wash-hand basin. The nearby bathroom next to Bedroom 6 can be shared with this room. The rooms all lead onto the centrally located sitting room, with comfortable sofa, stereo system, satellite TV and a well-stocked bookcase. There are also games, toys for different ages. The property has stone terraces surrounding it and there are beautiful landscaped gardens. There is a small vegetable garden where guests can take their pick. Swimming Pool The swimming pool is located above the main house in a quiet and secluded position. It is furnished with sunbeds, large umbrellas, outdoor shower and a toilet inside the pool house. A pergola provides shade, and there is a fridge to keep drinks cool. The area around the pool has been fenced for safety but this does not impose on the wonderful views. A barbeque area is located close to the main kitchen and outside dining area. There is a large childrens playground and outdoor table tennis table. There is a private tennis court.

About the neighbourhood
The Carmine estate is located in a spectacular position in northern Umbria. The valley itself is outstanding in natural beauty, with the mountain of Monte Tezio rising high above it. Forests and olive groves adorn the slopes down to the valley with its stream, well managed farmland and vineyards. The valley is dotted with ancient stone properties, all carefully restored, which add to the beauty of the area. It is abundant with local wild life including deer, wild boar and our favourite Hoopoe bird. It is very well located to use the amenities of the local area, and after only 1 km of well maintained gravel road you reach the small village of La Bruna. The village of Pierantonio is a 10 minute drive and the larger market town of Umbertide a 15 minute drive, so all the requirements ...
Getting around
We recommend hiring a car or we can provide tax services.
