Resechio Noci

World class three bedroom villa, restored to the highest standards, located near the border of Tuscany and Umbria.

Umbria Villa 6

Located right on the border of Umbria and Tuscany, Noci or Col delle Noci to give its full name - Walnut Hill - consists of two buildings: the Main House and Guest Annex. The buildings lie high up on a gentle slope overlooking the entire Reschio estate and nature reserve. Noci is a converted 17th century farmhouse restored to the highest standard of renovation and design. 

The 2 bedroom main house has a spacious light filled interior with easy access to terraces and garden. 
The guest annexe is completely self-contained making it ideal for visitors.

A mature olive grove, a split level 4 x 18m overflow pool facing the Castle of Reschio, outdoor sitting areas combined with impressive views make Noci a truly fascinating property.

Noci is part of Castello di Reschio, a very private estate that covers 2,700 acres of Umbrian countryside on the border with Tuscany. This is the green heart of Italy, a land of rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and woods of oak and chestnut, where little has changed since St Francis of Assisi preached here in the Middle Ages. Scattered widely apart amid 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, tailored to individual tastes in a style and quality of finish that meets the highest international standards. 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. Integral to Reschio is a unique combination of world class service and facilities, privacy, security and nature at it's most tranquil. The 5* concierge service available to all owners through the Estate Management Company includes personal drivers, daily maid service, food delivery and cooking services. Residents can enjoy classic Umbrian food in the delightful setting of the Osteria, horse-riding, mountain biking and country walks on the estate and floodlit tennis. Castello di Reschio is centrally placed to enjoy the highlights of Umbria and Tuscany and is only 20 minutes from Cortona or half an hour from the galleries, churches, opera, film and jazz festivals or theatres in Umbria's capital city, Perugia. Florence and Rome are within two hours drive, and Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Todi and Orvieto are all close by. Castello di Reschio is also a renowned equestrian centre with a stud for pure Andalusian horses and the breeding of the almost forgotten Sicilian San Fratello horses. There is a dressage training centre with indoor and outdoor areas and highly experienced multi-lingual instructors and trainers exclusively for residents and their guests. For golf enthusiasts there are two separate golf courses in the area, designed by Robert Trent Jones II and Davide Mazzacane, and both are within 30 minutes drive. Lake Trasimeno, one of the largest Italian lakes, is only 15 minutes away and offers swimming, sailing and windsurfing. The Osteria, a beautifully converted stable with a magnificent vaulted ceiling provides light meals, wonderful espresso and exceptional wines. During the summer months, clients can sit outside under the loggia and enjoy the exquisite views.
