Italian Palace – Umbria property for sale
Italian Palace for Sale – Historic property in Umbria
This beautiful Palazzo enjoys an excellent location in the historic center of Spoleto in Umbria. Dating back to the 13th century, the Italian Palazzo was carefully renovated between 2001 and 2003 and restored to its original beauty.
The historical property for sale in Umbria consists of 12 rooms, all of which are individually decorated and each room, with its unique architecture, colour and decor is reminiscent of a noble room of the past. All rooms have a view of the sacred mountain of the Spoleto valley "Monteluco".
The noble Leti family made this their residence in the 16th century. In the following centuries the small building was enlarged thanks to the construction of the north wing and the beautiful garden that includes the two neoclassic facades with period architectural features still intact.
Recent restoration of the Italian Palace has revealed an important architectural, environmental and historic heritage not to mention a garden with a fountain that has been restored in classic "Italian garden" style. It is notable for containing many kinds of marble from different eras including a Sansi coat of arms.
From the garden one can admire the beautiful view of Monteluco and some of Spoleto's most important monuments including the Rocca Albornoziana, and St. Peter's Church.
Palazzo Leti is currently operated as an up-market, discreet B&B but the user licence can easily be converted back to residential status as it is a residential and protected building.
Spolento also hosts 'The Festival dei Due Mondi' (Festival of the Two Worlds), one of the most important annual cultural manifestations in Italy, with a three-week schedule of music, theater and dance performances.
