Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Ideal for Parties Stag/Hen Allowed

The Old World is alive at this historic villa in Umbria, whose ancient stone courtyard is surrounded by meadows, woods vineyards, and olive groves. A recent restoration has welcomed this abandoned 11th century church and 18th century farmhouse into the present; now the property enjoys a second life as a working organic farm. Inside you’ll find old stone walls, standing in perfect contrast with the plush furniture and modern fixtures. Especially stunning - the grand piano, shining beneath the old beams of a vaulted ceiling!

Weddings are nothing short of spectacular here, whether your guests join you the chapel (seating up to 40) or outside among either fields or ancient flagstone. We’re happy to help arrange catering, flowers, and other services - see the Events page for full details. Guests will find innumerable spots to reconnect, and (of course) photograph; from the pergola in the garden to the old stone fountain.

Located by the tiny town of La Bruna (1 km), this holiday villa has easy access to Perugia (30 km), the capital city and site of the nearest airport. You'll delight at the countryside here, at the foot of Monte Tezio; the truffle forests of Umbria are calling you!

Villa Chiesa is located in the heart of Umbria, only 20 minutes north of the cosmopolitan city of Perugia and close to the borders of Tuscany.

It is located at the foot of Monte Tezio in a protected valley where the wildlife is abundant and nature is thriving. The views from all directions are stunning. To the south is Monte Subasio and the town of Assisi. To the west is the ancient castle of Antognolla, and to the north are woodlands and the mountains ranges of the Appenines.

The valley itself is outstanding in natural beauty. The mountains of Monte Tezio rise high above it, and forests and olive groves follow down to the valley where there are beautiful streams and a wonderful vineyard. This is great countryside for horse riding and walking as well as for trying local food and wine.

Villa Chiesa is very well located to the amenities of the local area. It is only 1 km from the small village of La Bruna. The village of Pierantonio is a 5 minute drive, and the larger market town of Umbertide is a ten minute drive. All of these towns have shops, restaurants, banks and more and are easy to reach.

The main road of the E45 is only a 5 minute drive away and allows guests to visit the many attractions of the nearby area as well as in Tuscany, Le Marche and southern Umbria.

Visitors to the area are able to enjoy the highlights of Assisi and Gubbio. It is very much a thriving local area. There is a vibrant market weekly in Umbertide. Wild boar hunts take place in the valley weekly in the season, and many local fiestas are held throughout the year. Visitors are very much welcomed.

The University city of Perugia is only a 20 minute drive and provides all the larger services such as rail, bus and air connections as well as the famous festivals such as Umbria Jazz.

Only 2 km from the property is Antognolla Golf Estate, which boasts a challenging golf course and a wonderful restaurant.

Lake Trasimeno is a short half hour drive and there guests can enjoy a large variety of watersports, take a ferry across to one of the Islands, visit many of the lovely towns that surround the lake and eat at some of the wonderful restaurants that serve fresh lake fish.

Region

Umbria has best of Italy to offer: rolling landscapes, wine, beautiful towns and villages, olive oil, expansive lakes and the food, glorious food. A holiday here can be as lazy, active, cultured and as delicious as you like.

This region is scattered with pretty, picturesque villages, while the area has a rich cultural heritage. From thermal pools to medieval cathedrals and olive oil museum, Umbria has an intriguing amount of history to discover.

Both Rome and Florence are accessible within a day trip, while the closest towns of interest would be Orvieto, the old town which is a fascinating series of winding streets, piazzas and a colourful weekly market. 

History lovers will be spoilt - from the first century Roman amphitheatres to the twelfth-century duomos, to the fourteenth-century hilltop fortresses,  the glut of remnants from the medieval and Bronze Age that punctuate the region is impressive.
