The agriturismo

In 1990, Gino Martinelli, a graduate in agriculture, inherited the former San Salvatore monastery, overlooking the Carpina Valley in the Pietralunga Forest, which he then converted into this organic farm and agriturismo.  At La Cerqua guests can enjoy beautiful scenic views and purchase farm produce, sample speciality cuisine in the zero mile restaurant, take part in educational activities and enjoy horse riding.

The accommodation

The 8 guest rooms located in the main house comprise: terracotta paving, wooden beams, niches and old open fireplaces and comfortable Arte Povera style furniture combined with modern technology, such as internet access, flat screen TVs and kettles for preparing herbal  teas. There is also ample beautiful communal space, from the  dining room with large open fireplace to the reading room with small library, the music room, the “biobar” organic bar with veranda, the swimming pool and the barbecue area.


You'll also find further accommodation in the Old Hayloft - 2 mini-apartments surrounded by gardens - and in the Balucca country house - 8 tastefully furnished rooms at the heart of the farm (with goats, sheep, piglets and barnyard animals). There is also a large apartment with 2 rooms, a kitchen, a garden and private parking.

 

Silvana’s traditional cuisine (with gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan and children’s options also available) uses local, organic produce and ingredients from the farm itself, also available for guests to purchase in the shop along with “Magician’s Garden” nature posters and the must-have illustrated manual of “leaf peeping”, written by the owner.

Activities and surrounding

On the organic farm guests can relax around the sunny acorn-shaped swimming pool, enjoy archery among the oak trees, visit the small educational nature oasis known as the “Il Giardino del Mago” (The Magician’s Garden), stroll through the Pietralunga Forest (following the map or with Gino as your guide), enjoy horseback excursions along the Ippovia Umbra bridleway and take part in cookery workshops.

Nearby you’ll find the medieval hamlets of Pietralunga and Montone and cities of art such as Gubbio, Perugia and Assisi, to name just a few.

    Unfriendly environment, lacking some features on the presentation sheet (for example services for the disabled) ... I think it will be the first and only holiday on a farm.
