Tenuta San Lorenzo is a converted monastery which can be traced back to the year 1000 and is protected by the Italian Ministry of Fine Arts. The villa has been restored to the highest of standards and offers fabulous accommodation set in a truly beautiful position just a short walk from the village of Collazzone.
Tenuta San Lorenzo is divided into two wings which are connected by a spectacular courtyard offering a candle lit dining space for up to 15 people surrounded by the original walls of the monastery with open skies above.
The larger of the two wings offers four bedrooms, a large, modern kitchen, a dining room (seating 16 comfortably) which leads to the external courtyard. From the kitchen there is a second external dining area at the front of the villa with a covered pergola along with a barbecue and pizza oven.
On the ground floor you will also find two bedrooms, one double and one twin/double, both with en-suite shower rooms.
A steep flight of stone steps lead to an elegant bright lounge/library with open fireplace.
On the first floor there are also two double bedrooms which share a bathroom with large shower. There is a second shower room on this floor too.
In the second wing of the building stone steps lead to the first floor where you'll find a large ultra modern open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area. In this wing there are three bedrooms all with ensuite shower rooms. The style of this second wing is more modern than the traditional feel of the main wing.
Off the external courtyard you'll find the original friars refectory and more recently olive mill - this is a huge space with beautiful vaulted stone ceilings will be closed unless requested and an extra fee will be made for this space. It's ideal for parties and weddings and is charge at an additional €650 per week.
The grounds are extensive and filled with flowers, olive trees and even your very own chapel. The large pool is set below the villa down some steps where you'll find a lovely covered external seating area and a superb outside kitchen with burners and a sink. There's a lovely view from the pool area.
This beautiful property makes an ideal base to explore this splendid area of Umbria although with the village of Collazzone on the doorstep you might find it hard to travel further than the pool and local pizzeria.
