Nestling in the enchanting scenery of Umbria, at the edge of a pretty village and just a few minutes from the medieval towns of Todi and Orvieto, Casa Lorentino enjoys an ideal position overlooking beautiful countryside and neighboring villages. Originally a Benedictine monastery in the thirteenth century and transformed later into a castle, it is today a charming country house with a traditional flavor but equipped with modern conveniences.
The fine restoration has preserved several elements that characterized the original construction such as - the doors, the handmade terracotta tiled floors, the exposed stone walls, the high ceilings with exposed beams and a ceiling with a barrel vault in the dining room.
The furnishings blend harmoniously with the architectural style of the rooms.
The house is surrounded by a large park that ensures privacy for its guests. And thanks to its excellent location you can easily alternate quiet relaxation with interesting excursions to many rural villages or to the nearby lakes of Corbara, Bolsena or Trasimeno.
The house is on two floors, connected both inside and outside, plus a tower.
The main entrance, on the ground floor, leads directly into a large dining room connecting to a well equipped kitchen and sitting room with satellite TV and fireplace. The kitchen and sitting room lead on to a second dining room and from there to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with tub. Completing the ground floor is the laundry room and a little guest bathroom with access from the kitchen. A wooden staircase in the first dining room leads up to the first floor with a studio which has direct access to the outside and a sleeping area with 2 double bedrooms (one with dividable bed), each with ensuite bathroom suite with tub, and a third large bedroom with the bathroom in the room itself. Finally, a flight of stairs leads to the tower, consisting of a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower.
The estate surrounding the house is completely fenced and comprises about 15 acres, covered in part by an olive grove and in part by a large wooded area where guests can walk and jog. Around the house, an area of about 1-1/2 acres is planted with lawn grass and contains a dining area furnished with tables, chairs and barbecue. In several points around the garden comfortable sitting areas have been arranged, equipped with sofas and armchairs, perfect for simply relaxing or else to chat accompanied by a good glass of wine.
The vegetation is very varied and is meticulously maintained.
Completing the grounds is a lake, about 200 meters from the house, where guests are welcome to try a bit of fishing.
Open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October, the beautiful infinity pool is located in an area surrounded by lush vegetation.
The pool measures 6 x 12 m with a depth ranging from 1 to 2.5 m. Access to the water is via large steps or a ladder; a shower is at one side. The solarium area is equipped with beds, sofas and coffee table, ideal for relaxing after a swim and is provided with lighting for pleasant evenings.
Situated in the green Umbrian countryside, not far from the city of Orvieto, and just a few kilometers from the Orvieto exit of the A1 expressway, Casa Lorentino is a good starting point for those wishing to explore the beauties of Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio.
The towns of Umbria - such as Todi, Assisi and Perugia - are easily reached by the nearby E45 highway.
