Villa Arrighi, a Luxury Converted Farmhouse in Umbria, Italy
By Eric • Jul 21, 2011 • Selected Work
Castello di Reschio is a very private estate that covers 2,700 acres of Umbrian countryside on the border with Tuscany, Italy.
Scattered around this unspoilt landscape are 50 farmhouses that seem as ancient as the hills. To date a dozen or so have been beautifully restored for clients to create private houses.
Each home is unique and has been created and furnished by the owners of Castello di Reschio, Count Antonio Bolza and two generations of his family who live in the 11th century Castello and run this magnificent estate.
The Villa Arrighi, a 6,600-square-foot retreat featuring six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a large entertaining kitchen, and a swimming pool is one of those meticulously restored farmhouses.
“A large paved courtyard with fountain leads into Arrighi which has some fine Romanesque features and the origins of the building clearly date back to the 11th Century
It has been renovated to preserve the austere external appearance whilst creating a spacious light modern interior with sandstone flooring and a glass encased external staircase tower.”
The Villa Arrighi accommodates up to 12 guests and can be rented all year round, from $23,000 to $30,000 per week, depending on the season.
