About Castello di Reschio Arrighi
There are very few Umbrian villas that can claim to have a bread oven upon their grounds. Even fewer have been refurbished by a Count. And hardly any are surrounded by a 2,700-acre private estate.
Arrighi is no ordinary Italian villa. The rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and woods that surround it have been graced by the feet of St Francis of Assisi. In times past it was a watch tower adjoined to a fortified farmhouse. Its meticulous restoration has gloriously transformed it into a Main House, a Guest Cottage and, yes indeed, a Bread Oven.
The imposing L-shaped Main House is approached through suitably grand entrance gates. Holm oaks, olive trees and a mature garden line the path to a glorious fountain. Fine Romanesque features and 11th-century stones still grace the building but inside there’s a spacious light modern interior with sandstone flooring. A glass encased external staircase tower takes you into the stunning views as you move between. Outside the extensive private grounds contain a generous 18x4 m overflow pool and a vaulted pool house.
The rooms here are truly lavish. This is a place to relish rather than just live in. Integral to this heritage and splendour is the age-old tradition of service. The concierge can provide personal drivers, daily maid service, food delivery and cooking services. As a guest of the estate you can enjoy classic Italian food in the delightful setting of the Osteria, horse-riding, mountain biking and country walks on the estate, clay pigeon shooting and tennis.
