The Villa and its History


The architecture of the Villa reflects the austere ideal of simplicity of the classical period. The front exhibits some discreet splendor with its arcades and pillars. A fine sculpture in white marble, portrait of a a noble lady, welcomes the visitors walking to the reception desk.
Pomp and ceremony are not on the agenda. You’ll rather find a very genuine private atmosphere. Antique furnishing, old paintings, chandeliers and frescos on the ceilings create an elegant, peaceful and timeless ambiance.
The ground floor is mainly occupied by the two dining rooms. The guestrooms are situated on the first and second floor. The building is surrounded by a park. If you need to cool off, there ist a big swimming-pool framed by hedges.

Villa Roncalli has a long history. Conceived in 1690 as a hunting lodge with annexes, all surrounded by a park, it was given its actual shape and structure by Count Roncalli (1844-1910). He seems to have been quite an ambiguous romantic personality, citizen of Foligno, libertine, freedom fighter, Jesuit and director of the Institute of Applied Arts. Being a notorious gambler he is said to have played away the Villa together with the whole property.
The Villa was completely restored in the 1980ies and opened for the guests in 1985. Angelo Scolastra, a passionate of antiques, has furnished the rooms, perfectly keeping the balance between refined elegance and rustic style.
