Welcome to Monestevole
eco-lux living in the Green Heart of Italy
Monestevole was originally built in the 15th century as a watch-tower for nearby Monestevole castle. Over the coming centuries, additional parts were added to the tower to develop it into the current borgo (hamlet) structure. Up to 12 farmer's families (over 50 people), lived in Monestevole until the 1960s when it was abandoned for 30 years until a young couple from Umbertide purchased the ruins and restructured it. Tribewanted Monestevole purchased the property in 2012 and opened its doors to the tribe on March 21st 2013. Our team lives both on site and in the nearby town of Umbertide.

The Green Heart of Italy
Umbria is the greenest region of Italy. Local crops include olive oil, wine, sunflowers, and spelt. The region is famous for its truffles, pork meat and wild boar. Local bread is made without salt due to an old feud with the Pope on salt tax!
