Former watchtower and farmhouse villa near Cortona
12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6 baths
Experience Umbria from a renovated farmhouse on an ancient aristocratic estate at villa Arrighi. One of fifty villas on the vast Castello di Reschio estate, the six-bedroom property was once a watchtower and fortified farmhouse. Today, its accommodations are spread out over two buildings with striking modern interiors, offering space and privacy to up to twelve guests.
Pass through a gated entrance, grove of oak trees and mature garden to reach Arrighi’s beautiful grounds, with views of the Niccone Valley and Tuscany. Take in the panorama from the infinity pool, a lounge chair on the pool deck, a chaise under the pergola or the al-fresco dining area. Test your baking skills in the bread oven. For your convenience, there’s an underground pool house, under-floor heating and Wi-Fi access.
The interiors of Arrighi are clean-lined and contemporary, with white walls and polished wood floors forming the backdrop for colorful rugs, sofas and modern art. The living room’s rustic beamed ceilings are balanced by the sleek accents of a glass and metal coffee table and sleek black fireplace surround. Gray chairs and glass accessories set a soothing tone in the spacious dining room. There’s a fully equipped state-of-the-art kitchen in the main house and a kitchenette in the guest house.
There are five bedrooms in the main house at Arrighi and one bedroom in the guest house, all with air conditioning. Each has a double bed and an en-suite bathroom, and the furnishings mix beamed ceilings, neutral-toned fabrics and modern metallic accents for an intriguing contrast. In the main house, one bedroom has its own dressing room and sitting area, and one bedroom has access to the garden.
Though it’s worth taking the time to stroll the estate, there’s plenty to do in the area as well. Stop at the town of Cortona, 11 km away, play a round at the Antognolla golf course, 23 km away, taste the treats at the Perugina chocolate factory, 24 km away, enjoy shopping and dining in Perugia, 26 km away, and take a pause at the Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli, 29 km away. Florence is 143 km away and Rome is 233 km away.
