What better way to enjoy the sport of golf than by taking a holiday in the beautiful Italian countryside? We’ve rounded up five luxury holiday villas that are in close proximity to one of Italy’s most spectacular and challenging golf courses, Antognolla Golf. Conceived by the renowned designer Robert Trent Jones Junior, the eighteen-holes at Antognolla feature long, cliff-lined fairways and beautiful water hazards, making it an exciting and satisfying course for golfers of all abilities.
The Antognolla Golf course is situated
in the region of Umbria, often referred to as the green heart of Italy. Known
for its beautiful landscape, delicious cuisine, rich history and medieval
villages, Umbria is diverse and includes picturesque rolling hills, olive
groves, vineyards and dense forests ideal for truffle hunting. When you’re not
on the golf course, explore the bustling nearby city of Perugia, walk the
narrow cobblestone streets of Todi, a medieval village that looks as though it’s
from a fairy tale, or enjoy a day in Assisi where you can visit the historic
Basilica of St. Francis with its 13th century frescoes. The following five villas are all set on an exclusive countryside estate and are less than a 10 minute drive to the Antognolla golf course and is only 20 minutes from the city of Perugia which offers a wealth of cultural activities including opera and the famous Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate festivals. In addition, Siena, Arezzo, and Assisi are nearby and the villas are within two hours from Rome and Florence.
