The farmhouse is located about 15 minutes from the A1 motorway exit and from the railway station which connect Orvieto with Rome (about 1 hour) and Florence (about 2 hours).

A farmhouse whose history is of ancient origins. In some documents, its presence is traced as early as the end of the 1200`s, when the building functioned as a convent: in fact, a community of Cistercian monks from Marche once stood here, including Fra Bevignate, protagonist of the birth of the Cantiere del Duomo di Orvieto. Surrounded by climbing plants and by woods, Casale San Gregorio releases all its character from the first glance. Literally immersed in the thick forest, it is a true oasis of peace and privacy, where nature generates well-being. The basement of the farmhouse is unfinished: these are large spaces, once used as warehouses, all to be exploited according to one`s needs. The main entrance is located under the porch, where there is also an old wood-burning oven. The ground floor of the farmhouse is made up of a large kitchen with fireplace, a study, a hallway, a bathroom with shower and a double hall containing the living area with a wood-burning fireplace and the dining area. Going up the internal stairs we find a large hallway, a large room currently used as a study and 2 double bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom (one with shower, the other with bathtub). The property is completed by the adjacent lemon house with pergola and 20 hectares of land, mostly woods and olive groves. San Gregorio is a farmhouse of ascertained historicity and is located in a surveyed historical-archaeological area.
