It has only 38 inhabitants but, during the high season, it becomes the destination of thousands tourists aimed to know the “Little Venice of Umbria”: this is Rasiglia.
Until a few years ago, it was almost an unknown place: Rasiglia, a small hamlet near Foligno that, precisely because of its naturalistic characteristics, has become both a beautiful pearl of Umbria and real touristic phenomenon.
A small mountain hamlet composed by a few stone houses built around three creeks. Rasiglia is crossed by canals, creeks and small waterfalls which give to this place an extraordinary romantic aspect.. almost fairy: a perfect destination for those who want to get lost among the alleys and the bridges, as well as to let themselves relax by the lively sound of the mountain waters which flow into the creeks.
However, Rasiglia is not just nature and poetry.. today there are still two looms in it which were used for the yearns weaving. In the past, this represented the main business of this place. Moreover, walking through the town, it is possible to see an ancient mill that was used to grind the wheat, as well as a charming seven towers castle dating back to ‘300.
In this magic place, Great Estate would like to propose you an amazing property:
Along the valley of the Menotre stream, in a territory rich of selected truffles, an ancient medieval property composed by two farmhouses and reachable through a small and typical wood bridge on the stream , “Podere Rasiglia”, stands.
This house is full of important architectonical details: from its realization in stone to the presence of a little tower, where a bedroom is; from the typical ceilings, with large wood beams and original cotto bricks, to the beautiful pavements, done with both cotto and worked serena stone. Finally, the presence of some internal walls realized with face on sight stones, rock sinks, recesses and ancient ovens enrich this fascinating property even more.
Going into the farmhouse, the large and suggestive living room with fireplace and the masonry kitchen with dining room – both located at the ground floor – catch the attention. At the upper floor, the beautiful patronal bedroom of about 50 sqm with fireplace does the same. “Podere Rasiglia” includes another stone building (click here to read the property sheet): located in a green and uncontaminated natural context at about 600 metres above the sea level and at only three kilometres from the famous Rasiglia hamlet, the property is surrounded by more than twenty hectares of land.
