This Majestic Castle & Hamlet town is for Sale and characterizes itself thanks to its unique horse-shoe layout. At the same time, the history of the complex itself is both fascinating and unique. The main Keep was mentioned as a military outpost in a Papal Act dating back to the year 1100. In origin, however, it was a Military outpost built on the Border of the Western Roman Empire, at the time of the descent by the Barbarians, as a defending fortress that would keep in check the empires borders, now set along Perugia. In the year 592-593, the border was reached the Byzantine Lake, in the area that later would merge into what is now Lake Trasimeno, where Hannibal defeated the Romans. The Ancient Core was stabilized around the year 700 with the defeat of the Barbarians in Pavia. In the year 1000, a Benedictine Monastery was built. Following various successions, the structure was converted into a Castle and passed through the hands of various noble families of the Perugia area (Alfani, Sereni, Cesi di Acquasparta), and this eventually led to the creation of the title of Princes of Monticelli, that become associated to its owners that now would rule over a real fiefdom. Since 1992 the Site has been completely renovated and restored to its original splendors, and its incredible spaces enhanced to create synergy and housing space in this unique hamlet surrounding the Castle grounds.
The 9 hectares of Land host Biological Gardens which are a grocery source for the Restaurant, and the Fruit Trees and Olive Groves yield an important domestic production.
