Santa Cristina

Fully immersed in the utmost beautiful nature, with Perugia's belltowers in the view, Santa Cristina is composed by a large farmhouse, designed by a well-known architect, and several annexes

Getting to Santa Cristina is a real experience: you find yourself at the edge of a hill, surrounded by unspoiled nature, with the good fortune to see the bell towers of the historic center of Perugia. But in addition to all the outline, there is what this estate is: a real dream.
Composed of a large house, on two levels, designed by the famous architect Gae Aulenti, and other outbuildings, some renovated, others used as a lemon house, tool shed, pool house, is a property to fall in love with at first sight. The details are many, perhaps the most important is that it is the house chosen years ago by the famous director Luca Ronconi, who made it his good retreat, where to create and conceive his shows.
The current owners have conducted the renovation of most of the estate is 2017, leaving intact the spirit of the property and the architectural style visible in it.

The main house is characterized by a large staircase that by itself makes a separate environment, a kitchen completely renovated by the current owners, and several rooms, some left as they were originally, others completely renovated. With its huge front patio, which overlooks the vegetable garden and the valley, the main house is a beautiful example of the use of bare stone, wooden beams, but also more contemporary materials, such as teak and concrete.

The other fantastic component of Santa Cristina, what we could call its flagship, is the swimming pool and the whole area around it: the choice was made not to place it particularly attached to the main house, but to relegate it to the corner more exposed, with the most breathtaking view of the whole estate. Being at the pool therefore becomes an experience of pure freedom. The taste of simplicity and spontaneous plants joins a beautiful path surrounded by cypresses, and all the terracing around allows being in the total privacy.
In addition to this, Santa Cristina has a completely renovated annex, consisting of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a beautiful and large kitchen, perfect either to be rented separately, or to host friends and relatives.
There are other outbuildings that wind in all 70 hectares of land, including a ruin completely to be restored. We also find a lemon house, where to keep plants in winter, and a tool shed. This area is also characterized by the particular collection of ancient peonies which still give wonderful flowers.
In short, Santa Cristina is the best you can find, ideal for all those who want a great estate, in a magical but not lost place: in fact Perugia is only 30 minutes away and Gubbio at 20.
