Castello Bonaparte

Umbria - Assisi Area


 

Peace, serenity, uncontaminated landscapes set in green, winding valleys where poplars stare up at the deep blue sky. A Region whose appeal unfolds through the stark architectural constructions that stand tall in the towns that remind us of so many Renaissance masterpieces. In Umbria art and nature melt together in a legendary tale that is well worth telling.

Castello Bonaparte – Assisi Area - Umbria

7 bedrooms (twin or suites), 9 bathrooms, saltwater pool, 1500 acres estate

On request 15 further beds are available in a medieval Tower at 100 m. to the Castle

Castello Bonaparte is a magnificent 11th century historic castle encircling a courtyard set in the middle of a very private estate that covers 1,500 acres of glorious Umbrian countryside, midway between Florence and Rome and only 30 minutes drive away to Assisi, on the border with Tuscany, actually including a collection of historic residences, castles and woodland complete with lakes and a natural reserve. The owners of the estate are descendants from Joseph Bonaparte (king of Spain and king of Naples), and from Lucien Bonaparte, both brothers of Napoleon I, and the castle has been in their family since 1901.

Castello Bonaparte was, through the centuries, a Castle and then an Abbey that had a commanding view over the Umbrian Northern Tiber valley. It was the summer residence of Pope Leo the 13th around 1880. The castle also features a large church with frescoes inside - still consecrated and devoted to Saint Joseph – and a beautiful octagonal tower made by the emperor Federico di Svevia. In the middle of the complex is a large stone courtyard, with an ancient well, surrounded by lemon trees. The entire framework is original. The last intervention of adjustment dates back to XVIII century. The current restoration works have been realized according to the bonds and indication of the Umbrian Monuments and Fine Arts Office, and with the employment of ancient material and traditional working technique.

Inside: Castello Bonaparte has been restored to the highest standard of renovation and design to create a luxury villa with 7 rooms and 9 bathrooms; each bedroom features all modern comforts and en-suite large bathroom with bathtub + rain shower (two feature even a whirlpool). There’s a panoramic terrace, a reading room packed with books, a TV room, a large dining panoramic jasmine covered veranda, billiards,  computer, fax, printer, photocopier, scanner, a bar with ice-maker and an exceptional fully equipped Kitchen. WIFI broadband Internet connection is available inside & outside.

Outside: there are wonderful views over the Tiber Valley, extensive mature grounds and gardens including a botanic garden, a kitchen garden, a 5.000 sq. m. manicured gardens designed by the famous Tuscan landscape designer Alberto Margheriti, and children’s playground. A very private 15 x 7.5 m overflow saltwater pool with stunning views, BBQ and pool wooden gazebo almost adds an extra room to the property.

Staff and activities: Integral to Castello Bonaparte is a unique combination of world class service and facilities, privacy, security and nature at it's most tranquil.
