Mazzini 31 is a truly unique vacation destination located in one of the most charming corners of Umbria. It is a luxurious and romantic residence with its own private pool, spa and wine cellar perched on a cliff with a majestic view of a fertile Tuscan valley….a private retreat designed for travelers seeking to rest, to explore, and to enjoy the beauty of the area.
The home is located in the heart of the town of Monteleone d’Orvieto inside a medieval palazzo that was modified over four centuries and became an elegant noble residence in the 1800’s: Its second floor complete with a beautiful terrace, the vaulted stables and underground caves that were used to store local wine and olive oil production, became “Mazzini 31” in 2012 after we purchased it in a state a disrepair.
During the process of renovation we discovered its inner beauty as we stripped away layers of wallpaper, paint and plaster to reveal an enchanting combination of wall and ceiling frescoes which span four centuries. With the love and passion that distinguish all of our projects we infused this noble treasure trove with elements of luxurious modern design that transformed it into a unique residence with 21st century comforts and old world charm.
We look forward to having you stay and enjoy this special place and we will personally help you make your vacation here a memorable one.
