Today I Casali di Monticchio are full of life. They were living centuries ago, amidst the songs of the farmers who met in the evenings to celebrate special occasions. They were living in the mid 1900s, amidst the laughter of children coming from the countryside to attend the school of the Casali, the only one in the area. Today, thanks to the owner Liria, the place radiates new life. Each time she speaks of her Casali and of its guests her eyes light up. I Casali di Monticchio is an elegant relais situated in the countryside on the border between Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany, on a hill top overlooking the wonderful valley at the foot of Monte Rufeno. At the Casali care is lavished on every detail: from the choice of the fabrics and furnishings to the architecture and wonderful gardens and the rare and excellent food proposed by the restaurant.
