Located in the medieval hill town of Montefalco in Umbria, Casa Cardinale boasts a unique location in an area rich in history, art, architecture, award-winning wines, sensational foods, and stunning landscapes across seasons. It is in the very heart of Italy and in a region that is as yet relatively undiscovered.
Casa Cardinale is literally off the main piazza and offers flexible accommodation in two separate self-contained apartments, Lucrezia on the first floor, and Federico on ground floor, which can be converted into one house. It can be rented for short visits or longer stays such as sabbaticals. This delightfully ancient and rustic building has been lovingly restored by artist Neil Moore to reflect its former glory as part of a cardinal's home. Cosy furnishings, magnificent valley views, cobblestone lanes, proximity to cafes, restaurants, spa, shops and the frescoed church of San Francesco all add to a truly memorable experience of being transported back in time.
Montefalco has become well-renowned as a wine region and in particular for its unique Sagrantino wines. Wine tastings, cooking classes, truffle hunts, guided tours, shopping expeditions, hiking and bicycle excursions as well as a dedicated driver can be organised by negotiation.
