Borgo di Piantalucci

Unrestored county houses with approved restoration project for sale in Campello sul Clitunno, Umbria, in a hamlet near Spoleto with communal pool.

BORGO di PIANTALUCCI, a small hamlet near Spoleto, Umbria, Italy
Only 2 houses still for sale in the hamlet, one to be restored and the other one to be built.

Just 15 minutes from the centre of the city of Spoleto in Umbria, there is a small mountain hamlet at 710 metres above sea level with a magnificent view of the city of Spoleto in the valley. The area, rich in the famous and prized Umbrian black truffle that grows in symbiosis with the oaks in the forest, is of rare scenic beauty. At the end of the 1970s, the hamlet suffered the same fate as many other similar Umbrian hamlets, being completely abandoned, until in 1991 Adriana Benedetti, a real estate broker specialising in the sale of prestigious and historic properties, and passionate about the restoration of rural houses, bought what was then the only property actually for sale, consisting of the hamlet’s old warehouses and barn.

In the following years, what had initially been a real estate investment turned into a real passion and a more articulated project, aimed at recovering the entire hamlet and creating areas of common use for the various owners, such as a swimming pool and a common car park.

The hamlet includes 6 properties, each independent with land and terraces and fantastic views of the Spoleto valley and the surrounding woods. It is very private and incredibly quiet and unspoiled, a small natural oasis; only 15 minutes from the centre of Spoleto it is possible to feel away from it all in a private paradise of birdsong where the stars do not compete with man made lighting and the sense of peace and tranquillity is restorative.

The houses, which enjoy complete privacy, share recreational facilities, a communal swimming pool and a parking space for the owners and their guests.

This is an excellent opportunity to live within a rural setting that has been meticulously restored so that the character of the former ruins is not lost.

Here are the details of the 2 houses still for sale in the hamlet:
Fienile: a hay barn with an already granted permission to restore, creating a beautiful country house of approx 146 sq m. The land included in this sale is of approx 10 hectares.
