It is impossible not to feel at peace and part of infinity itself here; so go ahead, let your spirit soar and ride the wind between the endless blue skies and sun-kissed, verdant hills of Umbria.
Guided Walking tours
We gladly arrange guided walking tours of the estate upon request so you may visit and get acquainted with the estate’s stables, deer herds, wild sites such as the mesmerizing waterfalls and gorges respectively named Cascatelle and Gole del Ponte Cavaliero, the best photo-hunting spots for deer, wild boars and, if you’re really lucky, a sight bound to stir anyone’s primordial instincts: wolves.
Do you remember the famous song “In the old farm” that we sang all, at least once in your life?
Once they arrived at the uvula and started to sing Silve Armenzano prepared because there is Uncle Bruno ready to make you make friends with all the animals on the estate.
The estate, in fact, is also a working farm, forestry and pastoral address. Herds of cattle, pigs (with local hardy breeds) and deer are brady, in other words our animals move freely within our woods and pastures.
In spring you may also run into the fox who has the curious habit to come and take food to the door of the house, especially for those staying in the house.
You have the camera? Take them with you to photograph deer, wild boars, badgers, hedgehogs and porcupines … and mysterious and funny inhabitants of the forest!

The Umbrian food tradition boasts many cozy and tasty treats also thanks to its fertile and generous land. Our products are the result of genuine real natural production techniques. We are by nature, we respect it, we love it and we take care of the fruits that can offer us.
In most cases, therefore, the products have a distinctly seasonal character and quantitatively vary in relation to the time of year.
- Cultivation of saffron, producing saffron in threads
- Olive trees, producing strictly cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil
- Organic fruits and vegetables for the restaurant of the hotel and for agritourism guests
- Cherry trees, producing jam
We breed pigs, cattle, deer, chickens and geese are produced delicious Umbrian sausages, meats to be eaten fresh, eggs and milk. Guests can sample the farm produce, consume on the spot, making ‘goodness stocks’ to take to return home or to give as gifts to friends and relatives.
For those who celebrate marriage in Le Silve, we realize the “nature favors”, small and original compositions with farm products to offer in homage to guests and wedding witnesses.
Most of the products are prepared and proposed by our chef and you can taste them in our restaurant Armentum. Stay in one of the apartments of our houses? You should definitely experience the pleasure of our produce and try out tasty and original recipes.
