This vast property is staffed by a couple who live at the back of the villa. They have no access to the part of the manor that you occupy. They are primarily there to clean the pool – usually early in the morning – to tend the grounds and to, generally, ensure the smooth running of this manor house. However, they will be on hand should you require anything whatsoever eg info re wine tastings, olive oil tastings, museums, art galleries or any info relating to the local area or, indeed, anywhere in Italy. Otherwise, you need never see them, except for glimpses when they are tending to the gardens.


This huge manor house is 11 kms to central Spoleto and close to all the hot spots eg Perugia, Assisi, Montefalco, Orvieto etc.

It sits atop a small hill, on the eastern slope of the Martani mountains, amidst expansive private grounds.

Below the manor there is a spectacular panorama that sweeps across olive groves, mountains, valleys, sunflower fields, taking in ancient monasteries, tiny villages and fairy tale cities in its wake.

The manor is equipped with all you can possibly require for the holiday of a lifetime.

Located in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, this stately house is steeped in history, culture and local traditions.


This magnificent manor contains 2 large apts.

However, for the rest of this year 2022, the 2nd apt will remain empty. This means that when you book, you have the whole place to yourselves.

The pool and the grounds will be yours exclusively.

Your apt consists of 2 floors –

Upper floor contains 3 double bedrooms – the master with aircon/ensuite plus 2 bathrooms -inc ensuite…

Ground floor contains 1 kitchen/diner, 1 fully equipped galley kitchen, 1 sitting room plus 1 cloakroom…

Optimally, the apt sleeps 6 persons. However, we can provide 2 extra camp beds that can be placed in 2 of the bedrooms so enabling a group of 8 persons to stay here.


Queen Elizabeth has always favoured living in a small cottage on one of her estates. She prefers the ” down to earth” natural way of life to that of living in a palace. Her small cottage is a place where she kicks off her wellington boots and leaves them by the front door along with the muddy shoes of her privileged guests. It is a place without the flunkies and fineries usually associated with the fabulously rich. Here, we are talking “old money” not nouveaux riche.

It is the same with Manor Rico Aristo! This is not a modern reconstruction. It is a traditional rebuild of an Umbrian country manor, a huge, comfortable and easy living house, a house that you can totally relax in, a house that has seen many generations of young and old.

This is a house of the old style Italian aristocrat.


Yes! You can be officially married here. We do not arrange marriages. But, if you are able to arrange it and deal with the bureaucracy etc, then, certainly, this is an ideal location for you and your guests.

The charge for use of the church and for the grounds to host a large event is 1000 euros. Ask for further details.

Otherwise we do not permit parties or other large gatherings in the house or grounds.

However, if you and your party wish to merely worship in the church, we can provide you with the key.

The apt, the pool and the grounds are exclusively yours. No-one else will have access to the property except for the grounds man and his wife, who will clean the pool and look after the land - at times to suit you - usually very early in the morning before you are awake !

The rate includes all utilities, linens, towels - inc pool towels - and final clean. It does not include the city tax, which must be paid in cash on arrival - 4 euros/per person over 12 for the 1st 4 days of each month.

Weddings allowed in consecrated church in grounds - 1000 euros charge for event to take place on site and use of church……. We do not organize the wedding but we can advise about catering.


Refundable damage deposit of 500 euros to be paid in cash on arrival. This is as an insurance against serious damage/vandalism eg if a washing machine door is ripped off and such like acts. We do not charge for minor accidents such as breakages of crockery etc. Further, if you abuse the use of central heating or air con by leaving doors and windows open, you may be charged. But, if you leave doors and windows shut during use of either of these utilities, you will be fine !

The deposit will be returned in full on the day of your departure, assuming no claim has been made. To date, in 25 years of business, we have never charged anyone - I stress it is an insurance policy for us, particularly aimed at younger groups, to encourage a greater degree of vigilance.
