Ca’ di Nieri welcomes you in Umbria, where the green heart of Italy meets Tuscany and Le Marche, at the crossroad of paths harmoniously unwinding among natural  beauties, arts, crafts, culture and food and wine traditions, which have always made this part of Italy famous in the world and especially beloved by connoisseurs. Set at 485 meters altitude, in the middle of the wildlife restocking area of Valdipetrina, among the green hills surrounding the medieval village of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Ca’ di Nieri opens for its guests the ancient walls of two late 17th century houses, gathered in the tiny village in which Barbara and Giorgio chose to live, after a lifetime spent traveling around the world. In a refined and relaxing environment, perfectly integrated in the history and the local traditions, Ca’ di Nieri offers its guests a sought-after quiet corner, equipped with every comfort and within a short distance from famous places such as Assisi, Rome, Florence, Urbino, Gubbio, Arezzo, Cortona, Spoleto, Gradara, just to name a few.

Recently adopted Umbrian citizens, the hosts like to share with their guests, or “friends in  transit” as they call them, the unique emotion of living the territory like real “locals”: slowing down the rhythm of the days, discovering villages unknown to mass tourism, enjoying privileged observation points on the most famous destinations or savoring the genuine tastes of tradition.


Thanks to a careful selection of tailor-made services, you can decide whether to follow an Italian course or an 18-hole golf course; whether to discover the High Tiber Valley on a mountain-bike, down the narrow paths of its woods, or behind a truffle dog, looking for a precious tuber for dinner; or you can choose between learning how to decorate a ceramic plate at an art laboratory in Deruta and learning how to make homemade pasta from the old women of the village.

If you prefer to take some rest and do nothing at all, then treat yourself to a rich breakfast on the patio, enjoying the unique view on the surrounding landscape, then make yourself comfortable by the pool and be sure to end the day on the terrace in front of the olive grove, enjoying a drink prepared by Giorgio, wrapped in the last golden rays of the sun setting behind Monte Santa Maria Tiberina and the scent of wild mint and rosemary invading the meadows all around.
Welcome to the green heart of Italy.

Ah, before you ask … why the Saints’ Lodge?
