Agriturismo in Italy
Deep in the quiet of Umbria’s countryside, Le Cerque is an oasis of peace surrounded by 22 hectares of park, partly dedicated to our own production of olive oil and wine.
The original farmhouse, recently renovated, dates back to the 1600s and benefits from a magical 360-degree view of the surrounding hills. The pool on top of the hill offers the best panorama that stretches out as far as the eye can see.
Just two hours away from Florence and Rome, in the heart of Italy, Le Cerque is an ideal place to reach several historic towns in Umbria and Tuscany while resting in an oasis of nature. The only noises that can be heard are the distant bells of the nearby churches and the chirping of birds.
Le Cerque is what we Italians call agriturismo, a farm stay where you can reawaken traditional habits, living closely with nature and eating healthy, locally-produced food, with the best comforts of modern life.
Le Cerque is perfect to explore Umbria, the green heart of Italy: you can hike up different paths, and also go mountain biking. Our park is a sanctuary for local fauna, including hares and wild boars.
Two hours away from Rome and Florence, Le Cerque is in the heart of a historic area, as it is surrounded by several medieval boroughs. From here you can relive the magic of the past and explore the world’s smallest theatre.
At Le Cerque you can eat healthy, locally-grown, natural food. We produce wine and extra virgin olive oil, but also eggs that you can taste for breakfast. If you are interested, we also offer cooking classes.
In summer, you can relax in the panoramic pool while taking in the view. In winter, we have two fireplaces that make for a cozy environment to sit down and read a book.
Inside the farmhouse there is a warm atmosphere, typical of a country house. It has beautiful wooden floors and high ceilings with beams that remind of the medieval churches in the surroundings.
There are six unique rooms, one of which is accessible to people with disabilities. The rooms are spacious, all of them have a private bathroom and they each have a different view of the surrounding park.
In the cold months the common areas are warmed up by two fireplaces. Big glass windows let natural sunlight come through all year round. There are also a baby grand Ibach piano from 1873, recently restored, and an upright Hartmann piano.
With full Wi-Fi coverage throughout the whole property, Le Cerque guarantees all comforts of modern life while immersed in peace and nature.
The park extends over an area of 22 hectares, which make it the perfect starting point for naturalistic excursions. The park has become a sanctuary for local fauna. On the property, and along the surrounding forest paths, you can come across hares, foxes, wild boars and badgers.
The green areas around the farmhouse offer the possibility of doing a lot of outdoor activities, but they are also perfect to relax, sunbathe by the pool and take time for yourself.
Just around the farmhouse, the olive tree grove and the vineyard bring all our agricultural activity’s products to life: wine and extra virgin olive oil are produced with natural methods. You can savour them during the evening aperitivo available by the pool side in summer, or by the fireplace in winter. The house’s own eggs can be tasted during the delicious and healthy breakfast.
