The Arthouse is part of a small hilltop castle on the border of Tuscany and Umbria: an artist’s retreat set in an enchanting medieval walled garden. It is located 40km north of Umbria's largest city, Perugia. The nearest town, Umbertide, is 8km from the Arthouse. Many destinations of particular interest to art lovers, such as Sansepolcro, Assisi and Arezzo, are within an hour's drive.

Art, beauty, peace, and comfort combined in Migianella dei Marchesa, the castle Arthouse near Umbertide in Umbria. We started with a 3-day booking and extended another 3 days because we loved the rooms, grounds, and panoramic views! This is Sarah's home and garden. She is an amazing fine artist, building reconstruction designer, and landscaper who cooked us breakfast and gave us painting lessons. We enjoyed the privacy and quiet, waking to the sun in a most comfortable bed. The adjacent room with bath and shower also has a view! Sarah advised us about the town Umbertide as well as visiting nearby Cortona, Assisi, Perugia and more. We also rented e-bikes in town one day and enjoyed the countryside and lunch in Montone. We will definitely return -- thank you!

Phenomenal! We had the great privilege of being Sarah's first Airbnb guest and we can't wait to come back! An artist, designer, and builder, Sarah has created a masterpiece in her home. Picture a restored castle surrounded by a splendid garden and expansive views of the Umbrian countryside. The outside is something out of a dream--roses crawling medieval stone walls, thoughtful landscaping affording wide views or secret reading corners. The interior is beautifully balanced--true to the ruin's raw material yet comfortable and brightly decorated. Lucky for you plumbing is brand new which means modern comfort (read great water pressure) in a genuinely old world environment. And yes, bed is GREAT and very comfortable! We adored our morning espresso with Sarah outside in the garden. Though staying at the castle in and of itself was a rare treat, it was really our time with Sarah that made our trip to Umbertide so special. Sarah was a gracious and lovely host and we were thrilled to have become new friends by the end of our stay! Highly recommend the whole experience!! **Note: the Airbnb map (as of 5/20/2017) directs you only half way up the hill to Sarah's. Keep driving until you reach the hill's top and you'll be sure to find it.***
