Long Description: Top
Located on a natural lookout, 750 metres above sea level, with splendid views over Sellano and the little villages surrounding the green valley below, the Vallemela Residence stands in the walled hamlet of Montesanto, which during the 15th Century was an imposing castle on the border between the Duchy of Spoleto and the Dukedome of Camerino. Admiring the wall surrounding the castle and the church you can still recognize the remains of its past splendour.

Divided into three apartments, the house is an excellent example of the harmony between past and present: externally the property retains its original architectural features (solid walls, squared stones and little windows) while the interior has been carefully restored combining a seductive atmosphere of warmth and comfort with a great sense of history.

Guests can enjoy the breathtaking view over the valley from a well-tended garden where it is easy to find a secluded spot to read a book or drink a glass of fine wine. The apartments share a gazebo, barbecue and swimming pool (5 x 10 m), all set in panoramic surrounding.

Near Valnerina and close to the National Park of "Monti Sibillini", the Residence beckons to explore the serene nature, where country roads wind through astonishing views over thickly wooded areas, colourful meadows, springs and ponds. Far away from mass tourism, Vallemela offers peace, quiet and serenity.

Montesanto is a tiny village belonging to the municipality of Sellano. Excluding its Italian and foreign summer visitors, Montesanto’s only inhabitants are three families.

Downhill, in Sellano, only 8 km away, you will find all sorts of facilities: supermarket, butcher, bar, public telephone, bank, bus stop, chemists, medical emergency service, post-office and petrol station.

The nearest restaurant is 12 km away, and, if you fancy a drink or a pizza, you can find a pub 9 km away alongside a nice little lake also equipped for fishing.

Testimonials: Top
1. Un rêve qui est devenu réalité!
Un cadre paradisiaque où l'on se retrouve face à soi-même et à la nature à la fois imposante et reposante.
Merci à Ilaria, Paolo, Luciana et Micol Tonti pour la générosité, l'hospitalité et la chaleur, qui nous ont permis de vivre ces moments de bonheur.
L'Italie, et plus particulièrement l'Ombrie, est une région de découvertes à tous les niveaux.
Félicitations aussi pour les prodigieuses réalisations des différents sites, que ce soit Montesanto, Rasiglia ou Assise, pour lesquels vous avez déjà, et actuellement encore investi tants d'efforts.
Avec tout notre respect et amitié.
Ciao ! - ce n'est qu'un au revoir.
Marc & Daisy Hoste, Antwerpen/Belgium

2. I cannot say how highly we rated this property, it is a real joy to have stayed there. It's highly specified with everything we would expect at a hoe from home. The peaceful and rural landscape are exactly what anyone needs to unwind from a hectic and often stressful modern life. We will definately return and our plans are steering toward staying at Vallemella in Montesanto next summer. A great base, a great welcome - thanks for being there!
Nigel Peeck, Bristol/U.K.

3. Nous avons passé 2 magnifiques semaines dans cette très belle région d'Italie.
La résidence Vallemela de Montesanto nous a ravi tant pour les paysages que son confort.
Enfin nous souhaitons encore remercier Paolo pour son accueil et sa gentillesse.
Era veramente un piacere. Grazie mille!!

4. Our American family of four based out of Naples, Italy, thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montesanto. The Vallemela property is very peaceful, surrounded by ancient history at every view. Our apartment was located beside the old castle which unfortanately is in ruins but was interesting to explore from the outside. The grounds are well cared for and the staff at San Potente ensured our every need was addressed and cared for. The location was ideal for the types of day trips we were taking throughout Umbria. We look forward to visiting their other sites in the future.

5. For Americans that would like a quiet week after or before a hectic week near a larger tourist type Italian city such as Florence or Venice, I would recommend this part of Umbria for a respite. There are plenty of day trips you can take which also would allow you to take advantage of the residence. I have recommended this location to numerous people already and would return should I choose to visit Mt. Sibilla for a hiking or biking vacation.

6. Un petit mot pour vous dire combien nous avons apprécié notre séjour à Montesanto, la maison et la région sont vraiment très agréables. Un grand merci à Mr Tonti pour son acceuil attentionné, et ses adresses (vins et huiles) qui nous prolongent un peu l'Italie. Au plaisir de revoir Ilaria en France. Bonne fin d'été dans votre jolie région. Au plaisir de vous revoir. Arivederci.
Family G.
