EXCLUSIVE USE, AUTHENTIC UMBRIAN HOSPITALITY
"Thank you very much for your warm and friendly welcoming at the Villa. We had a fantastic week in Eggi, the house is perfect and your help was highly appreciated." Fabien from France
"What an amazing place! All of our dreams were exceeded here - a wonderful place to relax with family and explore the area for a few days. More importantly, the grounds provided us with a beautiful setting for our wedding, from pizza night, to wedding night to brunch. Using all the different spaces made it feel that we actually had five different venues! We will always have the most wonderful memories and we will be back!" Elisha and Sasha
Built in 1600, the villa was a farmhouse owned by the Santini family and originally incorporated much of the surrounding land for livestock and crops. In 1970, Roman artist Bruno Bonifazi purchased the property to create a centre for artists and friends, Salvatore Moreno and Massimo Sansolini. Extensive work was carried out on the building and grounds and the BMS Studio was established in via del Fonte Secca, Spoleto, as an outlet for the art produced in the centre.
The chief administrator for the world renowned 'Festival dei Due Monde' in Spoleto also restored and lived in the cottage to the north of the garden. The artists enjoyed a high profile in the local social scene over the next 20 years but in the 90's the centre became unviable and the artists moved on to other projects. The villa remained unoccupied for about a decade, falling into disrepair and Bruno Bonifazi sold the villa in 2003. The most recent restoration of the villa began in 2006 and was completed in May 2009.
Our compliments for an authentic and glorious villa restoration go to architects Flavia De' Rossi and Paule Favre (www.archeamb.com)
The restoration of Villa Campo Verde came about after a chance meeting in the hills above Spoleto and the discovery of the property when none were looking. The opportunity to restore a grand structure to its former glory unfolded during five years of collaboration with architects and local artisans, all committed to the highest standards of authentic restoration. As a group of family and friends, passionate about the treasures of Umbria and the lifestyle the west has long forgotten, we have a very special connection with the surrounding countryside.
