Surrounding Area

Pieve San Quirico castle is the main house of "Le Torri di Bagnara - medieval historic villas" . They sit on a hill overlooking a wide part of the Tiber Northern Valley, 11 miles north of Perugia, at 300 m over the sea level. The Tiber Northern Valley is also called “Museum Valley” because of its beauty, art and culture. It is a fertile plain, entirely crossed by the river that flows for about 50 km from Perugia to Città di Castello, in the northern part of Umbria.
The villas stands in the centre of a superb 1500 acres estate, midway between Florence and Rome. The owners of the estate are descendants of the family of Napoleon Bonaparte and the castle has been in their family since 1901.

The surroundings are completely rural and tranquil but Guests have the convenience of the village, bar, shops, restaurants and sport centre being only five minutes drive away. An excellent and challenging Golf course (18 hole), designed by Robert Trent Jones jr., is only ten minutes drive away.

Four apartments set in a 11th century Tower (15 beds in total), just up the hill are available for large groups on request.

The Castle huge estate ('The Bagnara Estate'), is at Guests’ full disposal and it is criss-crossed with walking and biking trails, woods for berry-picking, a sprinkling of lakes and a farm where olives, honey and orchard-grown fruit and vegetables are harvested. “Chianina” cattle, chicken and goose are reared on the farm, while wild boar, roe deer and partridge roam in the woods.
