Originally built as a medieval watchtower, this beautiful property is situated in the heart of Umbria an area where the simple pleasures of country living are merged with art, history, architecture, and exceptional food and wine.
The property is set on one of Italy’s most exclusive privately owned country estates 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 villa is within two hours from Rome and Florence. This holiday villa has been refurbished to a high standard and offers impressive views of the olive groves and surrounding valleys.
The property offers three bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, a large infinity pool, incredible views, and pristine landscaped gardens. The bedrooms are tucked away in the medieval tower. There is a bedroom with a king size bed on the ground floor, a bedroom with two bunk beds (ideal for 4 children) on the 2nd floor, and a bedroom with a king size bed on the 3rd floor with access to the rooftop terrace.
The tower’s rooftop terrace is ideal to curl up and read a good book or enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset. The property is surrounded by thousands of hectares of pristine forests, olive groves, valleys, lakes and rivers, all of which add a sense of peace and tranquility.
The property offers a fairly traditional living plan with spacious rooms and exposed beams throughout. The interior spaces are bright with natural light and offer a charming and cozy ambiance. The interiors are designed to be a lovely blend between contemporary and rustic, which can be seen throughout the home.
This luxury villa is comfortable and inviting and was designed for families in mind. There is a lovely terrace with an outdoor table and lounge area off the dining room, which is a wonderful place for al fresco dining. In addition, there is a second dining table beside the pool. The swimming pool is surrounded by a large flat lawn and offers the perfect place for relaxation.
The villa is just a few minutes away from a local restaurant that serves regional Umbrian cuisine for both lunch and dinner. From the restaurant’s terrace, guests have a clear view of the medieval Antognolla Castle. In addition to the many surrounding villages, there is also a magnificent 18 hole championship golf course nearby.
Whether you would like to spend an afternoon lounging beside the pool, enjoy a cooking class at the villa, or journey into the beautiful towns of Perugia, Siena, or Assisi, this villa offers a wonderful Italian countryside experience.
