The village is situated in an unspoilt landscape, in a central position between Rome and Florence, set in an area of well known spas, such as Fonteverde in San Casciano dei Bagni, as well as interesting artistic and cultural centres. A short drive away is the Scarzuola convent and the Natural Park of Monte Peglia and in little more than half an hour are Monteleone, Città della Pieve, Orvieto, Lake Bolsena, Bomarzo, Volterra, Perugia, Spoleto and Assisi. Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and Siena are an hour and half away. The Tyrrhenian coast, near Grosseto (Maremma Park and Monte Argentario) can be reached in two hours and a half. For the A1 motorway connections there is the Fabro exit and from the E45 there is the Marsciano exit. Fabro and Chiusi train stations are on the main Florence–Rome direct route and Perugia is the nearest airport.
The exclusive properties at the "Il Pornello" date back to the twelfth century and still retain a charm unequalled given by the centuries of living history. The village is situated on a hill at 427 metres above seal level in Umbria, on the Tuscan Lazio border. The entire village and farm buildings should be re-evaluated in an appropriate manner so as to revive the history and culture of this enormous area. The entire village includes nine properties with a total surface of about 3310 square metres, and most, have the addition of four estates that are located near the main buildings. All properties have stone and brick facades. Internally there are many frescoed walls and luxury finishes, with, in particular wooden beamed and ceramic ceilings. Some buildings appear to be currently in a good state of repair, while the ones further away require reconstruction. A possible revaluation of the prestigious Pornello village would benefit from tourism, as has happened in the recently restored Scarzuola convent, located a few kilometres away. The agricultural sector is currently divided into three main areas. Chianina organic cattle, about 12 hectares of land used for the production of oil and wheat, and finally about 280 acres for timber production rotation.
State of repair:
‘Il Pornello’, entire agricultural farming village requires renovation. In the most elegant part of the village, ancient frescoes will have to be restored.
The utilities at the property are currently at the verification phase.

Potential Land Use:
‘Il Pornello’ village lends itself perfectly as a tourist accommodation business, aimed at the redeveloping of an entire urban area of great historical and cultural importance. There is the possibility to create suites, apartments and farmhouses of the highest standard for inclusion on the booming and lucrative rental market, which would help increase a large market share. Fascinating redevelopment idea, through the help of the area’s inhabitants, to revive the traditions and customs of the past, with pageants, dinners and horse trekking in the beautiful countryside surrounding the village. Certainly the strengthening of the agricultural business will require the most attention, the real and only source of livelihood for the local population. With an amortization redemption plan then, the agriculture business, a fundamental sector, could be adapted and modernized, to obtain useful results over the medium to long term.
