Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and ancient forests, the Castello di Reschio estate on the border between Umbria and Tuscany is like a world unto itself – a world of countrified, manorial beauty with rural delights abounding, including wine-growing, horse-breeding, hunting, fishing, high-class art and beautifully renovated villas and farmhouses. Creator of this exquisite enclave of peace and tranquillity is the aristocratic Bolza family who have breathed new life into the over 1,000-year-old estate and transformed the ruins of its historical buildings into extraordinary designer havens. Six of the luxurious, free-standing villas, each with a private garden and pool, are available for holidaymakers to rent. Appointed with highest quality materials and furnishings produced in the family’s own carpentry workshop, each of the enchanting houses offers an exclusive, charming ambience coupled with hotel-standard services.

This former watch tower with adjoining fortified farmhouse has a commanding 360° view of the Reschio Estate, over to Tuscany and along the Niccone Valley. A large paved courtyard with fountain leads you into the main house which has some fine Romanesque features and the origins of the building clearly date back to the 11th Century. The austere external appearance contrasts with the light modern interior which has sandstone flooring and a glass encased external staircase tower. A double-height sitting room and high ceilings give a great sense of space and the kitchen with a huge old arch is a natural focus for those who love Italian cuisine.

There is easy flow from inside to outside, with a dining room opening at either end to access the 18 x 4.5 metre swimming pool, which nestles within the gardens a few steps down from the terraces, and next to which is a custom-built spa bath. A gazebo covered viewing platform in the garden provides a breath-taking 360° panorama that includes a 'close up' of not one but two castles, that of Castello di Reschio and of Sorbello across the valley in Tuscany.

The seven-bedroom 17th century property of Brusceto is an elegant hillside home surrounded by rolling pastures and grain fields. Built around a courtyard of ancient mulberry trees and set in gardens of lavender, rosemary and ancient oaks, it has a covered outdoor dining area and tranquil infinity pool which boast panoramic views. One of the more traditional properties on the estate, its stone and terracotta floors and tiled kitchen give a sense of the building's past as a working agricultural fattoria while white walls and contemporary furnishings add a light modern touch.

The 17th century farmhouse that crowns Col delle Noci looks across the valley to Castello di Reschio and then on to the rolling hills of Umbria. It is a beautiful position and a beautiful house surrounded by grounds of mature cypress, lavender beds and stone terraces. The great, split-level infinity pool has the formal simplicity of an ancient Etruscan bathing tank whilst remaining one of Reschio's most modern and elegant designs.
Inside, Noci displays many typical features of traditional Umbrian design. Pale terracotta floors and rough-hewn wooden doors, the scalloped vaulted brickwork ceilings of the kitchen and the exposed timber beams of its cool and tranquil bedrooms, all contrive to give a sense of the building's history. But the house's bright interior palette of painted woodwork, contemporary fabrics and Italian furniture give a lightness and elegance of touch to this beautiful country retreat.

Perched on Reschio's south-western ridge, at the end of its own 3 km private drive, the five-bedroom retreat of Spinaltermine is one of the estate's most secluded and tranquil properties. The house commands a near wilderness privacy with stunning views down the Fosso dell'Antica, across Reschio land, to the Umbrian hills beyond. Its simple gardens of terraced lawns, wild oaks, olive trees and rosemary beds contain a brick-edged infinity pool and stonework summerhouse. Within Spinaltermine's simple stone walls sits an extraordinary contemporary interior. Exposed pale timber beams, brickwork lintels and bespoke furnishings bring a modern elegance to this stylish, rural home.

Commanding magnificent views of the surrounding Umbrian countryside, this classical Italianate villa is one of the grandest and most splendid of the homes at Reschio. Palatial rooms with vaulted ceilings, floors of reclaimed terracotta tiles, hand-painted wallpapers and a great, cantilevered travertine staircase honour the formal tradition of Italian palazzos. Meanwhile light modern furnishings and glass surfaces ensure a contemporary and luxurious feel. Set within elegant grounds of knot gardens and terraced lawns, its beautifully crafted heated infinity pool lies half sheltered beneath a vaulted loggia with uninterrupted views across one of the estate's main valleys. With its own wine cellar, tennis court, modern entertainment technology, a gym, billiard room and several outdoor dining areas, Palazzo is one of the most sought after holiday homes in Europe. We regret that, due to the nature of its interiors, Palazzo is made available to adult parties only.
