La Preghiera Luxury Country House Estate


With more than 800 years of history, La Preghiera was once a monastic complex belonging to the Mont'Ulivetani di Gubbio Friars, dating back to the late 1100’s. Restored and converted to a luxury country house estate by owners Liliana Richardson de Tunstill and her husband John, the main house, adjacent cottage and private chapel nestle in several acres of landscaped gardens with views over beautiful countryside and woodlands.

Situated on a quiet road just outside the village of Calzolaro, there are wonderful country walks in all directions. La Preghiera is in the north of Umbria, on the border with Tuscany, with Umbertide, Cittá di Castello, Montone and the real Green Heart scenes of Italy just minutes away, whilst the amazing hilltop cities of Perugia, Gubbio, Cortona and many others are within about thirty minutes drive.

The main villa has 9 bedrooms, all with luxury en-suite marble bathrooms and can accommodate 18 guests. For larger groups there are 2 further bedrooms available in the adjacent cottage in the grounds of La Preghiera, called Villa Moscatelli, providing total accommodation for 22 guests. All children are welcome when part of a group booking.

Extra beds can be added in certain bedrooms if required.

The villa is available for self catering rental in exclusivity including use of the gardens and swimming pool. The chapel will be opened on request at the Estate Office (located on the lower ground floor with an independent entrance). When the villa is rented in exclusivity, La Preghiera is pleased to welcome children and babies! Cots are available and extra beds can be added into the parents' bedrooms if required. Internet access is available in the billiard room when the Estate Office is open (usually Mon-Fri, 9am to 6pm).

Our copious buffet traditional Umbrian breakfast can be catered for, and a cook for lunch or dinner, and daily maid service can be organised on request (at the time of booking or minimum 30 days notice required).

Dinner

Italian cuisine is famous all over the world and the regional specialities of Umbrian cooking are amongst the most popular.

Local Restaurants
There is a wealth of excellent family run restaurants and trattorias within a fifteen or twenty minute drive of La Preghiera. The warmth of the welcome from the hosts combined with the delicious Umbrian cuisine makes for a dining experience to remember and stories that you will want to share with family and friends when you go home!
