Casale Valigi is situated in the beautiful region of Umbria an hour from Rome and is located on the ridge of a hill with breathtaking view of the medieval village of Narni.
Every space has been preserved to keep the historical charm of the original rural structure of the 1800s sympathetically adding our own touch.
In each part of the building we have integrated the old with new using natural local materials; the terracotta floor tiles of Castel Viscardo were made from our own design, the iron work forged by local artisans joins the crystal pieces in the staircase surrounded by old surrounding stones and illuminated by the ‘moon’ of the famous designer Davide Groppi. In the rooms the ancient linen, the natural pillows in spelt chaff, the hand-made terracotta washbasins by ceramists Ripa Bianca are the fruits of passion of research.
Following tradition, natural lime is used to paint the walls satisfying our desire to reduce the presence of chemicals. In the restoration we were careful to make the structure sustainable with wood-burning stoves, plant photovoltaic and rainwater collection.
The saltwater pool surrounded by olive trees and medicinal plants along with the large garden with a pergola of ancient roses and other well furnished spaces are the ideal place for total relaxation. Contemporary choices of quality furniture from international designers are combined with tasteful objects of ancient charm, fine works of traditional art with touches of the modern.
With good food, peaceful rest and well-being. The project comes to life. It is a pleasure to share all of it with you.
Casale Valigi has all the comforts you can expect from a luxurious home.
