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.

The estate is 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. Santa Cristina is definitely 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 several upgrade works in the property, on the outside and inside leaving intact the spirit of the property and the architectural style visible in it. With its huge front patio, 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.

Recently also a changing room and small gym area have been added.
In addition to this, Santa Cristina has a completely renovated guest house, not in the view of the main house granting privacy to both buildings, 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. The guest house/cottage is also a successful rental property (in 2022, 17 weeks via rental channels).
There are other outbuildings that wind in all 88 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.



Five bedrooms are present in the main house. The main bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe. Three bedrooms are present in the fully restored annex.


Three bathrooms are present in the main house. One bathroom has tub as well. Two bathrooms are present in the annex.
One bathroom is also present in the pool house.


The kitchen boasts a very spacious area, incorporating also the area where the large staircase is. The beautiful central area covered with marble is one feature for all the cooking lovers. The kitchen presents in the annex is a large open space kitchen, with a working fireplace.

Living room

In the main house there are two living room: one boasting a very nice fireplace and the second at the end of the large staircase, boasting a fireplace too. In the main house there is also a very special dining room, that seems almost carved in a cave, with connection to a second small kitchen area and pantry and outside too.

Other rooms

Main house: office/study on the ground floor, large workshop area with plenty of space to work and laudnry area are present. One small gym is present in the small pool house, as well as two changing rooms. Throughout the estate there are also several storage areas.



The gardens all around the houses are simply magnificent! Beautiful garden behind the main house with a peony area, large lawns extend throughout the estate, with particolar mention the one at the edge of the garden with a stone table to enjoy a magnificent view. The swimming pool is situated 150 metres from the main house via a path which is a little piece of heaven, lined with blooming lavender and rosemary. The outdoor deck of the annex provides as well amazing views over the valley and Perugia. On top of the land there is also a greenhouse. A car pergola is present too. Part of the land of Santa Cristina is covered with olive groves, and in particular the plants in the closeness to the main house have been recently rejuvenated and the ones close to the ruin have been pruned. All this led to a massive harvest in 2022.


Electricity is present trhoughout the estate and all electrical wiring has been redone in the main house by current owners. There is well water and mains water too, LPG for central heating, several working fireplaces which contribute to warm up the rooms, internet access, 3 thermosolar panels.
