The Virtues of a Villa Vacation in Umbria for a Multi-Generational Family
January 30, 2015
PCV, one of several castles on the Bagnara estate, is available, beginning February 28, 2015 and ending October 31, 2015, but open during the Christmas – New Year's holiday, December 19, 2015 – January 9, 2016.
The Pieve Castle Villa is designed as a luxurious private home, but with the services of a hotel. It comprises seven bedrooms (15 beds); nine bathrooms, a professional kitchen, a Renaissance-styled courtyard, and a saltwater pool. On the grounds is a large, 18th century consecrated church. Weekly rates range from $10,200 to $16,500, depending on the time of year, and include a maid, breakfast service, full gardening and pool cleaning services (Sunday excluded), with other services obtainable on an ad hoc basis.
Since 1901, this exceptional estate, located near Assisi, has been owned by the Counts Giunta Tremi, a noble family descended from Napoleon Bonaparte via his oldest brother, Joseph, and through a younger brother, Lucien. Today, beautiful Zenaide Giunta, named for her great-great grandmother, owns and operates the estate. Commenting on the Pieve Castle Villa, she said, “This is not a simple house rental, but a life experience that speaks to all the senses and that grandparents, parents and children take away with them.” She added, “We are pleased to extend our hospitality to those wishing to immerse themselves in the Bagnara estate's enriching lifestyle – the beauty of this pastoral setting, the pleasures of our food and wine, the privacy of a heritage estate and the age-old culture of Umbria.”
The estate's working livestock farm breeds hare, roe-deer and white Chianina beef cattle, and cultivates honey, herbs and vegetables, which the family can pick for dinner. The scenery is a painter's or a poet's dream, a serene countryside of hills, plains, sylvan forests, flower-embroidered meadows, formal gardens and green pastures, all interlaced with small lakes, water features and crenelated castles.
A plethora of services and activities is available: in-house cooking (professional Chef); cooking lessons; massage; Wi-Fi; biking; hiking; golf (an 18-hole, Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed course is 10 minutes away); yoga, picnics; truffle hunts; wine tours; seasonal festivals (Spoleto in June; Umbria Jazz in July; Euro-chocolate in October) and visits to Assisi, Perugia and Todi or over the border to Tuscany or even to Rome.
