The apartments in our Residenza are owned by several private persons. The La Gioia team is in charge of the rental of these fully furnished individual holiday-apartments offering accommodation
for 2 to 6 guests each. Every apartment includes a modern kitchen with top quality appliances and one or two complete bathrooms with shower and/or bathtub. Thick stone walls give shelter from
summer-heat and underfloor-heating provides warmth through cold winters, both making air-conditioning superfluous.
The rooms have been individually furnished and decorated with loving attention to detail. Terracotta floors, beamed ceilings, exposed brickwork have been tastefully enhanced by the use of earthy Mediterranean colours, a mix of old and new furniture, bright homespun fabrics and soft lighting. Some of the apartments are on two floors, all of them have direct access to the grounds, some rooms have an additional gallery useful as extra sleeping or working space.
Antiques blend with modern objects, colours and lighting are warm and natural. Modern appliances include Internet connection, TV, and Hi-Fi. All units except Nr. 7 have private garden seating areas.
The grounds – with swimming pool, table tennis, boccia (similar to boules) etc. – which are open to all guests offer varied possibilities for sociable encounters besides many secluded corners for peace and quiet.
For visitors who would prefer not to prepare their own meals every day, the La Gioia-Team offers a unique service:
For members of the “Associazione Culturale La Gioia” we organize four weekly journeys through Italy’s kitchens and wine cellars. Allow us to spoil you with a candlelight dinner under a starlit southern sky. And every morning, you can have a well-stocked breakfast basket delivered to your doorstep on request.
For groups and/or families, we rent the Casa Caterina, a beautifully renovated 17th century Umbrian farmhouse. Situated 4 minutes away from La Gioia on a gentle hill amongst olive groves, it offers sensational views toward the Valle Umbra and Monti Sibillini. In the large private garden planted with old trees and lavender there is a swimming pool and ample space for activities.
The three-story house has 7 double-rooms, 6 of them with en suite bathrooms, a kitchen, 2 salons and a large dining room with fireplace on the ground floor. Next to the main building, there is an additional “Cottage” for 2 persons, also en suite. Casa Caterina can be rented by the week, (from Saturday-Saturday, max. 16 persons). Price: € 4,000. – Per week (final cleaning included)
