Casa Cape


Nestled in hillside olive groves, Casa Cape offers cosy splendour in a timeless property where the real star of the show is the captivating view


Casa Cape is a property that lures you in with its mesmerising view and authentic charm. It is a house that seems to have been designed around the 'riposo' – a long lunch followed by a lie-down. Here, there are myriad spaces: for dining or sleeping, for cooking or chatting, or for just quietly soaking up the breathtaking landscape.

The stone walls, terracotta tiles and wooden beams of Casa Cape have been carefully restored and the interior décor is an elegant curation of antique finds and modern comforts. The house combines the feel of a mountain lodge with that of a country villa, seamlessly drawn together by the natural materials which offer the perfect foil to armoires, gold mirrors and chandeliers. The gentle palette reflects the landscape, matched by rich seams of Renaissance jewel colours, all blending cohesively together.

There are five double bedrooms, two with an en suite bathroom, and a further two separate shower rooms. The large, chic sitting room and the adjoining dining room are spacious enough for all guests.

This is Italy’s green heartland where food and wine are integral to a life well lived. Cooks and foodies will not be disappointed by the expertly appointed kitchen. Outside, there is a large open terrazzo with a built-in BBQ and sink as well as a pizza oven and a vast fireplace for cooler evenings. The pool looks out on the same magnetic view, as does the dining pergola, also equipped with a fridge, BBQ and sink.

Casa Cape is only two hours from Rome and ten minutes from the pretty town of Spoleto, with Assisi, Trevi, and Montefalco and other hilltop towns close by. If you can drag yourself away from the rapturous view and the cosy elegance of the villa, then there is much to explore.  

Rooms description


Bedrooms

There are five double bedrooms, two of which have king beds and three with queen beds. Each room has original architectural features, comfortable mattresses, beautiful fabrics, locally sourced antiques, and shutters on the windows to ensure a good night’s sleep. 3 bedrooms have airconditioning and the 2 other have ventilators. These rooms stay cool in Summer.

Bathrooms

The main bedroom has an en-suite with a bath and there are two further shower rooms in the house, all with high-performance fixtures and fittings. Also the annex bedroom has an en-suite. Basins sit on antique furniture and the showers have amazing views or light wells, all blending new comfort with old artistry. There is an outdoor shower and toilet by the pool.

Kitchen

The handcrafted kitchen is well equipped with an Italian stove, five-burner gas hob, excellent coffee machine and two fridges. The central island has tall stools for a handful of guests to sit at, while wicker pendant lights and a large butler’s sink marry form with function. There is a back scullery with further storage.

Living rooms

The elegant sitting room is beautifully furnished in a country house style with a modern glass fireplace through to the dining room. The views over the iconic landscape inform the colours and interior design, while guests can enjoy wi-fi, a central blue-tooth sound system and a TV. The dining room enjoys the same incredible views and has a mountain-lodge feel to it.

Other rooms

Outside

It’s all about the view! The orientation of the house, pool and outdoor spaces makes the most of the stunning location, hugging the contours of the olive groves. The garden has lots of sunny as well as shady spots, lawn and terrace, dining and seating areas as well as a vast stone fireplace on a large terrazzo. There are houses nearby but your privacy is guaranteed, along with the view.

Notes

This property is not ideal for children under 8 and strictly no pets. Please also note that the last 2km of road approaching the property is narrow, although a large SUV can pass easily and the road is asphalted. The final 50m section is rather steep but for confident drivers good to take. There is comfortable parking for two cars close to the house.
