Italy’s national poet, Giosuè Carducci, called Umbria il cuore verde d’Italia – the green heart of Italy. Antognolla is a 5oo hectares estate set in the heart of Umbria.
A fairytale 12th century castle with 21st century, five-star facilities and service, the hotel at Antognolla is set to become a key destination for discerning travellers from around the world. An exceptional gastronomic offering and luxurious spa will welcome all members of the exclusive Antognolla community – be they owners, residents or guests.
Designed by international architects and built by local craftsmen, properties at Antognolla will combine the heritage of Umbria with the comfort and convenience of modern living. From a two-bedroom villa to a six-bedroom casa signorile, each property features commanding views of the Estate and beyond.
The Estate covers over 500 hectares – of breathtaking landscape, from wild, wooded hillside to manicured fairways. The championship golf course by Robert Trent Jones Jr. is acknowledged to be among the finest in Italy, while tennis courts, cycle routes and beautiful walks will provide plenty to do away from the greens.
Lying between Tuscany, Lazio and Le Marche, this unspoilt province is the perfect location for exploring the cities and countryside of central Italy. Antognolla is close to the provincial capital, Perugia, and around two hours from either Rome or Florence and their respective airports.
The scene of siege and struggle in the Middle Ages, Antognolla was for centuries the seat of one of Perugia’s most powerful noble families. Now the castle and estate are dedicated to more peaceful pursuits, and destined to become one of Europe’s leading luxury resorts. Original historic architecture will be preserved as a key element of the development, while new building will reflect the history, style and beauty of this exceptional place.
