Borgo Il Poeta is a sixteenth-century village, overlooking olive groves and vineyards with steep terraces, and enjoying wonderful views of the hilly landscapes. The charming village has been painstakingly restored by actual owners, whose search for antique furniture and original fittings brought them to the antique markets of England, Italy, France and Spain. Everything in wonderfully stylish, respecting the Umbrian tradition.
Borgo il Poeta is located in Umbria near Tuscany and it is surrounded by 4 ha of holiday heaven nestled on the side of the Tiber Valley. It consists of 4 houses and 2 cottages, a chapel, a pool area, a tennis court and many other amenities available on site or nearby.
Near the country path called “Strada del Poeta” there is the hamlet which bears the same name dominating the upper Tiber Valley midway between Città di Castello and Umbertide, facing the fine medieval village of Montone.
The group of houses grew up around a military tower, that dates back to 1500, built along the border between Tuscany and Umbria, on the Umbrian side. The chapel, dedicated to Santa Lucia, dates back to 1707 and completed the gradual growth of the original settlement into a true hamlet.
