About the property

Nestled high in the luxurious Umbrian hills, overlooking the valley of Assisi and the surrounding hills between the Chiasco and the Tiber rivers sits the isolated, sprawling La Montagnola estate, surrounded in its 17th century majesty by the dark green and silver of 6,000 olive trees.

the family tends to three completely restored farmhouses which guests can rent. There is the hilltop Caprareccia, with its six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, private swimming pool and 360-degree view of Assisi. Halfway down the mountain, there is La Casa della Caccia, with its studio, one and two-bedroomed apartments, swimming pool, and hill views. And next to La Casa della Caccia, sharing its swimming pool, there is Il Poggio, with its one and three-bedroomed apartments and quiet hill country

This is the domain of the Borgia and Medici family—an heirdom as ancient as Italy itself. Built over the ruins of a 12-century castle that was destroyed in 1298, the estate came back to life in the late 1600s, when the Baglioni counts established La Montagnola as a hunting lodge and summer residence.

here is the architecture of a building—still the home of the Borgia and Medici family—so expressive of the rococo style and 1700s classicism that it is now one of the most remarkable palazzos in all of the Perugia area. There is the inside courtyard, unusual among the 18th century villas, spread, as it is, over three floors. There is the palazzo’s interior, characterized by a long gallery, multiple living rooms and working country kitchen, where cooking classes are held.

Why Vittoria Iraci Borgia chose Torgiano

The New York Times calls La Montagnola a “staggeringly beautiful hilltop jewel.” The Washington Post was even more effusive, in a travel piece about the estate: “If this is country living,” the Post reported, “then sign this city boy up.”

Our stay in August 2017

  • 4 of 5

Nice house, plenty of space for 6 persons.

Very nice view over the countryside. Extremely quiet area.

Vittoria and Carmela are extremely kind and caring. We even had a private visit of the 19th-century "castle" where Vittoria and her family are still living.

The swimming pool is always very clean.

The inside of the house was a bit stiffling since we faced a real heat wave (more than 40 degrees outside). Fans were helpful.

The only issue we had was that the wireless connection was not reliable, sometimes working, sometimes not, which obviously did not make our son fully happy !

So, thanks very much Vittoria and Carmela for this very pleasant stay !

Owner's Response: Thank you Gilles for your feedback. Unfortunately your vacation has been in the warmest August we have had in the last 20 years. You all are been very nice and friendly with us and and you treated my place with great respect. It has been a pleasure to meet you all. I'm so sorry for the WiFi, I'm really doing al my best that it works well, because I understand how much important is, but sometimes it seems impossible. Hope to see you again, Regards, Vittoria

Discovering the centuries old woods of La Montagnola, by foot or mountain bike, meeting animals native to Umbria and watching them in their own environment is like stepping to another world.

Guests can visit the estate oil mills, attend an olive oil seminar, and learn how to select and appreciate the quality of our extra virgin olive oil production.

La Montagnola also offer a three hours cooking class that take place in the master kitchen of the 18th century villa. Here they will share some of the secret recipes of umbrian cuisine: home-made gnocchi with a tomato sauce that melt in your mouth, the crispy and delicious “ torta al testo” are just a few of the dishes you will prepare for your dinner.

During certain time of the year “La Montagnola” also organizes yoga and pilates workshops for beginners and intermediates. The yoga room is fully equipped with mats, blocks, belts and blankets
