The two lovely owners created a true paradise in this medieval town. You will be spoilt here!

High up in the Umbrian hills in central Italy, two well known British designers have painstakingly restored a medieval building that over centuries has served as a prison, a convent, a school and a hotel. The building itself had been derelict for over 45 years and part of it was in a state of collapse. It comprises of three medieval towers, which had originally been individual palaces dating back from the 1500s. After acquiring all the relevant permissions; a complex process since it is listed as a Grade A listed monument (The same grade as the Coliseum in Rome), the restoration process itself took less than a year to complete; The result is beautiful, sensitively restored home that clings to the edge of the hill. With its original 500-year-old Terracotta floor and 13ft-high beamed ceilings. A dramatic chandelier dominates the central stairwell, with its original 500-year-old iron balustrade.

The panoramically positioned swimming pool (700 metres above sea level) is lined with green Italian marble and the surrounding paved area is in travertine.

From the garden an exterior staircase climbs to the main entrance. What were once a series of dungeons are now a rustic kitchen and dining area. There are three en suite bedrooms and a library on the floor above; climb another flight of stairs and there is a second larger kitchen, living and dining areas, and a study as well as a spacious 60 square meter terrace with stunning views stretching over 100 kilometres in the distance. There is also a second entrance on this floor that leads out to a higher part of the village.One further floor has space for another three en suite bedrooms. The perfect base for discovering Umbria with all its magical views of hidden dells and magnificent peaks.Located between the world-renowned cultural cities of Florence, Assisi and Perugia, Siena and cortona just an hour away and utterly fabulous breathtaking views.

As the villa is built on a hill, there are two accesses: one through the village with car parking available at approx. 50 meters; and a street access via a stone cobbled courtyard which leads to the garden and from there to the 2nd lower floor. Located between the world-renowned centres of Florence, Assisi & Perugia, it is on the cusp between Tuscany and Umbria so that culture and art surround you.

Tiberina can also be the place for your dream wedding! The owner can organize all aspects of your wedding, for which also other apartments and townhouses in the village can be used for hosting guests.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request
  • For the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
