THE COUNTRY HOUSE
La Locanda del Borgo is situated in the village of Pietralunga (2400 ab.). Pietralunga is located in Umbria - the heart of Italy. It is the historical land of saints and pilgrims. This is a region of green countryside, high in the Tiber Valley (elev. 590m), where the climate remains mild throughout most of the year. Just a few miles away you enter the Tuscanian Valleys of Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia. Pietralunga is an ideal location for travelling to through Italy's historical landscape. Follow along the wine and olive oil paths and artistic towns, where nature and culture come together, offering the marvels and history of the Middle Ages through the Renaissance. View forest covered mountains and lakeside resorts. Cross over hills and high plains, where village settlements are sparse and in harmony with nature.
La Locanda del Borgo is situated in this gorgeous setting, on the village outskirts, bordered by century old trees and wild flowers edges. La Locanda del Borgo was built in the 15th century. It was modified and enlarged in the following centuries developing into today's modern aristocratic country-house.
Restoration and refurbishment have redefined the interior spaces by respecting the original architecture and renovating with original materials. Material such as greystone and brickwork floors, robust oak and chestnut wood beams and antique fixtures have been used to create todays country house, maintaining the original charm as it was handed down over centuries.
