Immersed in the scenic beauty of Corciano, halfway between Perugia and Lake Trasimeno
La Posta di Confine is a luxury holiday farmhouse set in the scenic area that extends from Perugia to Lake Trasimeno within a short distance of the historic centre of Corciano, a charming village that has earned a rightful position in the list of Italy's Most Beautiful Villages.
The property borders an ancient woodland of Holm oaks within a vast and still-pristine protected natural environment.
The place evokes a distinct charm that makes it perfect for a romantic getaway immersed in the stillness of nature, a vacation in a luxury farmhouse that offers exquisite apartments decorated with antique furniture.
Careful restoration preserved the original architectural features of an old building erected in the shape of a tower. The building served as a checkpoint along the path that wayfarers had to travel to avoid the marshy fields where woad (Isatis tinctoria) was grown for its fabric-dyeing pigment.
The Tower, which dates back to 1500 and overlooks a short stretch of the ancient road, was at the boundary between the lands under the jurisdiction of the Castle of Mantignana and the Castle of Caligiana. Enlarged and incorporated into the farmhouse, it is now fully part of the country resort.
In this romantic place, you will feel as if you were living in a hamlet where life used to follow the coming and passing of the seasons and the rhythm of farm work.
If you're truly mindful, you will relive the atmosphere and everyday life of the people who, through hardships but with exceeding dignity, animated this place imbued with history: the stones and bricks are the eloquent witnesses to this past.
The holiday farmhouse is a great starting point to the top destinations in Umbria and Tuscany, including Assisi, Perugia, Lake Trasimeno, Gubbio, Todi, Città di Castello, Cortona, Arezzo and many medieval hamlets rich in traditions, history and art.
The resort stands on a hill covered by centuries-old olive trees, which are cultivated by our farm for commercial purposes.
From the olives, we extract a superior-quality Organic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.
