Calitardo

The Calitardo Suites tower majestically over the poetic landscape of Umbria. Small villages and castles rise on gently rolling hills above wide valleys, meadows and forests – the region is considered the green heart of Italy and is known for its rich cultural history. Situated high above Lake Trasimeno and close to the small medieval town of Città della Pieve, the Calitardo estate blends nature, art and pleasure with the charm and history of the region.

For 40 years, the manor house flanked by cypresses, olive groves and vineyards – once a watchtower from the 16th century – remained abandoned until it was rediscovered, renovated and transformed into a tasteful retreat with five spacious, individual holiday homes. The patina of the historic building now encounters modern design and selected antique pieces of furniture.

The two apartments Bella Marta! and Hey Gigi! are located in the stable building, which has been faithfully rebuilt and adapted to modern comfort. The three units Ciao Amore!, Salve Nonna Lina! and Buongiorno Principessa! are located in the main building – Casa Principale.

The 12-hectare property is not only home to a farm – on the way to organic certification – with its own olive oil production, but also a saltwater pool with a magnificent view from Lake Trasimeno to the foothills of the Apennines. For relaxation, there is an oak-panelled sauna, a steam bath under the terracotta vault and a Japanese furo bath. 
The scent of lemon blossoms, lavender and rosemary fills the air as you stroll through the lush garden.
Dolce far niente at its finest!
