Description

The local legend attached to this amazing Umbrian property for sale has it that St Peter, on his passage from Pisa to Rome, summoned forth the waters of the spring in order to perform a baptism on this spot.

San Pietro Acquae Ortus was founded by a monastic order at around the turn of the millenium and is first mentioned in texts in 1000 AD. Over the centuries, a small hamlet built up around the Church and remained until the late 1960’s when rural depopulation and urbanisation led to it’s decline. The church and hamlet fell into ruin over the intervening four decades until the present owner saw the opportunity to restore the structures and transform the property into a beautiful Spa and hotel complex. A complete restoration was carried out over five years to create what you see today: a unique stucture, perched on the edge of the beautiful Selva di Meana Protected area, a forest that ranges over 3000 hectares, with views across the Tiber valley to appenine mountains beyond. The restoration created some 850 sqm of reception spaces including a restaurant / conference area in the body of the Church, an indoor spa, pool and exercise gymnasium which lead to the outdoor swimming pool and gardens.

The 25 apartment suites cover an area of approximately 1500 sqm. The is restauration now fully complete, leaving only the need for furnishings and fittings to create a fully functional hotel structure.
