Giuliano Lemme and Antonella Anselmo fell in love with Molino dei Ciliegi in 2011, and went on a project to renovate it to share with their guests the magic and joy of this unique place, giving an away-from-it-all feeling yet within short distance from the sights of Umbria.

Visiting Umbria often means making new friends. Umbrians are apparently reserved yet ready to share with others their love for food, good wine and the nature of their region. We wanted to share with you some of the people and places we love.
Starting from Eraldo, Giovanni, Claudia, our on-site team. They will always be ready for you, be it a small repair, some wood for the barbecue or an extra cleaning.

STEFANO ZAGHINI: Stefano, a Romagna resident, has now become an Umbrian by adoption. We met some years ago, and since then we have been sharing great moments of good cuisine, wine drinking and visiting places around Rotecastello. When we decided to refurbish the Molino, our obvious choice was Stefano, that as an architect had a long experience in projects. If you will like our villa, is Stefano you will have to thank.

LOCANDA DEL BORGO: this small restaurant, the only commercial activity in Rotecastello, has been a local favorite for years. Lucia, a smart young woman who lived in London, and her family, with grannie Genoveffa in the kitchen, will make you feel at home with their hearty traditional cooking. The antipasti misti are unmissable.

DAVID SALUMI: David and Patrizia Rossi’s butcher shop is one of the area highlights for anyone who loves meat and salami products. David invented Sella di San Venanzo (similar to pancetta, but with more fat, more aroma, more flavor) which is now sold in Eataly shops worldwide: here you can try the original!

TERRAE CASENOVE: first time visitors cannot help but being impressed with the landscape of the gentle hills just beyond Rotecastello, where fields and olive trees make an impressive patchwork of colors. We were delighted when we discovered that a family we had known for the common passion for wine, the Presciuttis, cultivate olive trees in this area, and they make such an excellent oil that when it is available we present our guests with a bottle as a welcoming gift!

E-BIKE UMBRIA: managed by a young and enthusastic team, E-Bike Umbria rents electric bikes but also organizes excursions around the hills of Monte Peglia. An unmissable experience!

LINDA GALLETTI: Linda is a professional cook, but above all an enthusiast when it comes to sharing her recipes! If you wish, you can learn to make fettuccine, gnocchi, lasagne and bread at home.

Those flowers, those women, those smiles freshly colored by the life that the dawn made us a little earlier, that chorus of small things that reward us, cannot buy them the money.
Nor can it buy that night lived in a rebel land that comes back to my memory.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
