With its unique location on a hilltop 700 meters above sea level, this fortified hamlet brings to mind the ancient splendor of a "gastaldo longobardo". 

The estate is entirely enclosed and has a private forest (40 acres) where wildlife can often be seen.  There is also a small lake with various types of birds and fish (fishing is permitted).

The main hamlet has been restored into five dwellings: Il Gastaldo (the largest), La Torre (the old defense tower), and La Scuderia (the ancient stable).  The owners, who are very friendly, and who will cook a typical Umbrian dinner upon request, live in the other two apartments.

A hay barn has also been refurbished and offers two guest accommodations, Il Fienile and La Legnaia. The furniture is comfortable and rustic with some period pieces.  Much respect has been given to the originality of the buildings.  Each has a private outdoor equipped area (small garden, portico or pergola).

A swimming pool (13m x 6.5m) with sun lounging chairs looks over the peaceful hills.  It is surrounded by a well-kept garden and a comfortable and tasteful pergola where there is a hammock for enjoying lazy afternoons.  A furnished enclosed portico near the pool offers a pleasant rustic sitting/dining room with wood-burning pizza oven, barbecue and stereo system.  On request, and to be paid on site, small groups can rent this room and have exclusive use of it.  Otherwise it is open to all guests. There is also a communal washing machine (fee paid on site).

When rented as a full estate, Il Palazzo Renato can accommodate up to 22 guests.
