Umbria Villa 10

A welcoming and simply beautiful house tastefully decorated with maximum focus on luxury. Set amidst the Umbrian hills with stunning views. Visitors just adore enjoying every moment in these gorgeous surroundings around a unique green marble pool, and can easily slip out from the back door into the conveniently located sleepy village, for a quiet coffee or delicious meal. Making it the perfect getaway either lazing in the sun taking in the view or being spoilt by the excellent maid service or dining in the local restaurant.

The house's location in the village makes sure that it uniquely combines the beauty of the countryside with the practical aspect of being part of this tiny village. Visitors will feel private yet part of the true Umbrian Life. The house is at 2,300 feet above sea level, providing wonderful views as well as cooler temperatures in the summer.

Conveniently located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria it offers the possibility to visit some of the most attractive sights of central Italy like Perugia, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Cortona. The house itself has a long history with its spectacular terrace and garden. Originally a series of towers, it was later united as one building and served as hotel, convent and children's school before its current renovation. Lovingly and carefully restored by one of the most prominent designer duo in London, it perfectly combines the 16th century flair with amenities requested by discerned travellers: high lofty beamed ceilings, meter thick stone walls, gorgeous views from every window are in impeccable harmony with designer furniture, luxurious bathrooms and private pool.

From the charm of the village, to the incredible warmth of the hosts and relaxed, stylish elegance of the villa, I highly recommend this place. Owners Robbie and Joe have restored the building with such exquisite sensitivity, added their own beautiful design to create an incredible home and one that's hard to leave. And that's the point - it feels like a home away from home. If only my home looked like that.Our bedroom was incredibly comfortable and quiet, the communal areas are spacious and light allowing guests to either be together or remain private as they wish. And breakfast on the big, open terrace is one of life's great delights - with the most amazing panoramic views. I would happily go back.’


It was an experience of a lifetime. The villa has breathtaking views over the country side. This is a true gem in Umbria, the building has been restored and decorated to a very high standard to provide great comfort and a peaceful atmosphere. Its hosts are charming and very welcoming. We are looking forward to our next stay to discover more of the Umbria region, which we believe it is more interesting than Tuscany. The house is perfectly located with a great terrace and garden, you’ll never want to leave the villa.”
