The Villa

A beautiful old farmhouse with unmatched views of Castle Reschio and the Niccone Valley. It sits in five hectares of gardens, and has been restored to the highest standards, by local craftsmen using local materials.



Casa Castalda is just inside Umbria, on the border with Tuscany. The house is situated half way down the Niccone Valley, which was described by the Sunday Telegraph as having ‘more beauty per square mile than almost any other part of Europe’.


Information & Pricing


The main house has an enormous open plan ground floor with a vast living room, hall, and snooker room. There are four bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms. There is a beautiful kitchen with its own terrace, and a double height living room upstairs with a gallery.

Down the hill from the main house is the Artist's House with its own bedroom, bathroom and terrace; and a converted tobacco tower with a large bedroom, lounge with kitchen, and a terrace with a boules court. Both enjoy beautiful views over the valley.

The house sits in 5 hectares of gardens, criss-crossed with paths and dotted with hammocks and places to relax. The infinity pool is above the house, and has an extraordinary view of two castles across the valley.

There is wi-fi across the property, a pizza oven, and a well equipped kitchen.
