Crowning a hill near the lovely town of Todi, this meticulously restored 15th-century farmhouse is surrounded by charming villages, undulating fields and lush forests. The sublime setting is perfect for gathering friends or family who will enjoy the villa’s excellent outdoor living spaces, fabulous pool area and small private chapel where weddings can be held.

The villa is surrounded by manicured gardens and sloping olive groves and fruit orchards. The courtyard has outdoor seating and alongside the villa is a panoramic dining table and vine-laden terrace with a sitting area. Further outdoor living spaces are found in a loggia next to the pool house, which has a large fully-equipped kitchen, spa, small gym, outdoor sitting and dining area. The mosaic-lined pool has an in-water sitting/sunbathing area and is bordered by a sundeck with plush sunbeds.

The main villa was decorated by an established Italian designer in a mix of modern furnishings, Italian antiques, exotic textiles and historic features like archways, wooden beams and exposed stone walls. It has a spacious double living room with comfortable sitting areas and a fireplace. The large professionally equipped kitchen also has a fireplace and some bar seating for snacks.

Things to do

Umbria has an enormous variety and number of traditional feasts throughout the year. The local communities treat these events as an opportunity to confirm their roots and identity and it is a wonderful opportunity for tourists to experience genuine expressions of Umbrian culture and folklore.

  • In Todi you’ll find all the main sights conveniently concentrated onto the Gothic Piazza del Popolo, which is itself set over top of an ancient Roman cistern system. Below town is the striking Renaissance church of Santa Maria della Consolazione.
  • In Assisi, you’ll want to visit the famous basilica dedicated to Italy’s patron saint, Francis. Frescoes by Giotto vividly tell the story of St. Francis’s life. In the Piazza del Comune you’ll find a church inserted into the remains of the ancient Temple of Minerva. Above town stands the Rocca Maggiore, a fortress that protected citizens during attacks. For a dose of nature and spiritual contemplation, walk to the hermitage, the Eremo dell Carceri.
    • In Perugia, be sure to see the frescoes by local artist Pietro Perugino in the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria and in the town hall’s Sala del Cambio. Step back to ancient times at the Etruscan arch and Etruscan well. Enjoy the lively atmosphere at the large fountain, the Fontana Maggiore. Sample the chocolates named for the city. Perugia plays host to international visitors with its acclaimed annual Umbria Jazz Festival, held each July. A wildly popular chocolate festival every October pays homage to the city’s sweet side.

Perugina Chocolate Factory and Museum in Perugia: Any chocolate lover can take a trip to the nearby Perugina factory and visit the museum and take a guided tour of the factory. Free entry.
• In Spoleto, visit the Roman theater and the archeological museum for a view of ancient Umbria. Go see the pre-Renaissance frescoes by Fra Lippo Lippi and Pinturicchio. The church of San Salvatore is one of Italy’s oldest and is set within the remains of an ancient Roman temple.
Spoleto offers up culture, dramatic performances and musical concerts during the Festival dei Due Mondi.
• In Orvieto, don’t miss the fanciful Gothic Duomo, which soars seven stories high. Inside are magnificently vibrant and graphic frescoes of the Apocalypse by Luca Signorelli.
• Gubbio is known for its palio, the Corsa dei Ceri, a spectacular run held every year on May 15, in which three teams run through throngs of cheering supporters up much of the mountain from the main square in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli to the basilica of S. Ubaldo, each team carrying a statue of their saint. Gubbio is so perfect, it looks like a medieval movie set. The main monuments and sightseeings of the city include the Roman Theatre which is still in use for performances, the massive Palazzo dei Consoli, the duomo and the Palazzo Ducale. Gubbio’s Roman theatre is a dramatic setting for summertime, open-air performances.
• For children: Maridiana is a farm that breeds Alpacas, angora goats and selected sheep, situated in Tiber Valley approximately 10 minutes from Umbertide.
• Citta Della Domenica Park: A wonderful zoo / adventure land on the outskirts of Perugia. It features both domestic and wild animals, various play areas and a train. It is a lovely day out for the family with young children. www.cittadelladomenica.com
