The Monte Nibbio portfolio comprises:

Surrounded by iconic Umbrian countryside and located close to the historic town of Todi - approximately 30 kms south of Perugia and mid-way between Florence and Rome - the five individual properties offer a wide range of possibilities to the private owner or institutional investor. While the smaller properties are perfect for development into private homes, Monte Nibbio and Villa San Benigno could potentially become a boutique hotel or spa.

Several of the properties have historical provenance, none more so than Monte Nibbio which dates back to medieval Christian times when it offered sanctuary to returning Crusaders in the 13th century, and was a Benedictine convent in the 16th century.

The properties all enjoy wonderful rural locations, deep in hidden valleys, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, or positioned on a private hilltop with 360° panoramic views and accessed via an ancient country road.

About Monte Nibbio Estates

The portfolio of five properties now for purchase has been assembled over the past 15 years by businessmen and friends, Peter Mullin and Kieran Hedigan. 

A successful Irish-American businessman, Peter Mullin is based in Los Angeles with interests that extend to reinsurance and financial services.  He is a highly regarded car collector and over the years has assembled one of the greatest collections of Bugattis which can be viewed at his own museum in California: www.mullinautomotivemuseum.com 

Kieran Hedigan first visited Todi in 2000 and has had a home there for over 10 years.  He divides his time between Todi, Qatar and the United Kingdom, and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the properties and their redevelopment.
