The place is Pietralunga, in the ever mild and green countryside, deep high in the Tiber Valley .
We are in Italy's great heart, in Umbria, land of saints and pilgrims, just a few miles away from entering Tuscanian valleys, Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia. An ideal position for travelling in Italian history and countryside, along the wine and oil paths and in artistic towns, where nature and culture offer an overwhelming gift of marvels, from the Middle Age to the Renaissance, from mounts covered in forests to lakeside resorts, crossing over hills and high plains, where human settlements are only sparse and in sound harmony with the environment.
In this privileged location, on the village boundaries, bordered by centuries old trees and flowering edges, is situated " LA LOCANDA DEL BORGO", a rural development which, established in the 15 th century, was then modified and enlarged in the following centuries, arriving in the today's as an aristocratic country-house.
Restoration and refurbishment have redefined the spaces by respecting the original architecture and rebuilding with recovery materials, as it was handed down over centuries, such as greystone and brickwork floors, robust oak and chestnut wood beams and some antique fixtures.
