This Villa is part of the “Le terre di Poreta project” - Five gorgeous houses that are more than easy on the eye.
This prestigious estate as a whole, located in Spoleto Poreta, used to belong to the heirs of the family della Genga up to the 15th century. The Villa della Genga was built in 1673 and everyone has to agree it is a place of rare beauty. The great and good certainly thought so, it was the favorite hunting house of Cardinal Annibale della Genga, who, in 1823, was elected Pope taking the name of Leo XII.
Thankfully, the Villa della Genga, has been beautifully refurbished and renovated and what was once an agricultural location has now been turned into a luxury home away from home. To ensure a top notch restoration, special attention was spent on the materials in order to respect the origins of this setting. Also in order to harmonize the architecture with the interiors, materials and colours were inspired by the enchanted landscape of Spoleto. You have three guesthouses to choose from. The Colobaia consists of two bedrooms (one double, one twin) with en-suite bathrooms, kitchen, balcony, dining room, living room, laundry/wardrobe and a studio with mezzazine. Gli Ziri offers a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms with two bathrooms and a dressing room. Il Grottone has a living/dining room, double room with bathroom and small closet, a studio with bedroom and en-suite bathroom and a terraced garden with sitting furniture and barbecue.
Even the swimming pool (18 x 8 meters) runs by natural process oxygenation, without any added chemicals. It lies within terraced olive trees and it was built to create an architectural element that recalls the old cattle troughs. Villa della Genga also specializes in the production of organic olive oils, so luxury in this case also comes with nature. A real beauty and just like the Borgo Marmotta the combination of tradition and progress is just about perfect and lets you feel just like at home.
