Forte Sorgnano is situated in the center of Umbria, only 25 kilometres from Perugia; in one of the most fascinating and uncontaminated regions; between Assisi, Perugia, Todi and Montefalco. The farmhouse dates back to the last century. Now, following a detailed renovation, the farmhouse offers unique accommodation thanks to the beauty of the interiors and the naturalistic context in which it is set. Surrounded by 200 hectares of woodland; the property, with several facilities, such as the swimming pool, is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday in the stillness of nature.
The residence is set in a county which is still undiscovered. On the top of a hill, at an altitude of 450 metres, in an unique position for its panorama and quiet surroundings. Forte Sorgnano offers the possibility of having a holiday in contact with nature and with the enjoyment of wholesome food and local wines. The land belonging to Forte Sorgnano covers 208 hectares, of which 180 hectares are covered by mixed woodlands (oak, chestnut and pine). The remaining 28 hectares are covered by century old olive groves, which have been extended with more than 1000 young olive trees. The olive grove has never been given chemical fertiliser and the excellent olive oil is produced exclusively at the Gualdo Cattaneo's olive press.
It is also possible to buy different local products such as: wine, grappa, vin santo, pasta, truffles... Forte Sorgnano has a very nice restaurant too, where it is possible to enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
Forte Sorgnano offers several possibilities to the people who want to take part in some activities. The swimming pool has a wonderful panoramic view and easy access. A big common barbecue and beautiful gardens are available for everyone to enjoy, as well as the gazebo from which there is a good view of the Umbrian surrounding hills. Mountain bikes are available, for those who prefer to follow the numerous paths around the farm. On site customers find a gym, a football pitch, a volleyball court, table tennis, a billiard, bocce pitch and an animal farm too. A wellness area is on site too (upon fee).

Dinner and receptions can be held at the castle, which is located only 500 m. far away. The Sorgnano Castle dates back to the ninth century and is of Lombard origin. This ancient Castle is a dream location overlooking the entire valley.
