This beautiful hilltop retreat 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 should perhaps be called the “villa-on-top-of-the-world” thanks to its extraordinary location and 360° views of the surrounding countryside.
This luxury villa offers three beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with a king size bed and en suite bathroom, a large infinity pool, incredible views, and pristine landscaped gardens. 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 are decorated in a simple, understated elegance. The interiors are designed to be a beautiful blend of contemporary and rustic with a light colored scheme that can be seen throughout the home.
The furnishings are charming, there is a gorgeous fireplace in the living room, and a large sliding door that leads to the terrace. The kitchen is fully fitted and offers a breakfast nook. Guests can also enjoy their meals at the beautiful dining table beneath the chandelier or al fresco on the terrace.
The villa is elegant yet comfortable and was designed for families and entertaining in mind. There is a lovely terrace with an outdoor dining and lounge area. The pool is surrounded by a large flat lawn and offers the perfect place for relaxation with a cool drink in hand.
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.
