Inside the restored houses there are the original tiled floors, wood beamed and tiled ceilings, some walls with exposed stonework and large fireplaces typical of Umbrian country houses.

Surrounding the houses there are large garden areas to enjoy, with lawn, flowering shrubs and lilac trees, comprising a pleasant internal courtyard, partly paved and partly lawn.
On one side of the hamlet there is also a hectare of land used for an olive grove; the property’s remaining land, around 50 hectares, comprises woodlands and fertile fields.
