VILLA PAOLA 10 sleeps, villa with pool and panoramic view to the green Umbrian hills



Updated: 26-Oct-2016
Sleeps: 10. Bedrooms: 5. Bathrooms: 5.

(PRIVATE STRUCTURE). Villa Paola, known by the name of Casale Margherita, as can be seen on the stone engraving at the front of the house, is an old residence immersed in the lush Umbrian countryside in a panoramic position whose origins can be traced back to the nineteenth century. Built entirely of stone, with a characteristic U-shaped plan, it was used by the old castle of Parrano as a lodge for travellers going to the castle and then later became a farmhouse, with pigsty and barn on the ground floor and the living quarters on the first floor. In 2000 it was acquired by the present owners who modified the original structure only minimally but furnished it, both inside and outside, with their own personal style, providing all the modern conveniences to satisfy the needs of clients of all ages. The geographical position of the villa, thanks to excellent road links, makes it the perfect departure point for visiting the famous centres of great historical and cultural interest in the vicinity, such as the Umbrian towns of Orvieto, Todi, Citta della Pieve, Assisi and Perugia and also the great art centres of nearby Tuscany, Siena and Florence. The property can be reached along a short dirt road about 40 m from the main road which, curving upwards, goes around the entire property and, after about a kilometre and a half, leads to the small village of Parrano where guests can find all necessities.


The house has two floors. The entrance, on the ground floor, leads directly into the dining room, connected on the right to the well-equipped kitchen and on the left to a large living room. The kitchen, with access to the porch outside, leads to the laundry, hobby room (with direct access to the inner courtyard), and a bathroom with shower. On the other side of the dining room, besides the living room, is a billiard room and a twin bedroom (with divisible bed) with ensuite bathroom with shower. The first floor, reached via a staircase from the billiard room, is composed of a study, double bedroom (with non-divisible bed) with ensuite bathroom with tub and 3 twin bedrooms (with single beds). Two bathrooms with shower complete this floor.


The property covers a total area of about one hectare, planted mainly with lawn alternating with terracotta-paved areas. The beautiful inner garden, looking out over with the valley of the Chiani and, in the distance, Castello di Carnaiola, is brightened by a rich assortment of trees such as olives and oaks, walnuts and almonds, by colourful flowers, mainly roses, and more fruit trees, apricot, peach and pomegranate, which guests are free to pick. In front of the French window of the kitchen is the porch covered in wisteria and jasmine which, furnished with tables and chairs next to a handy American gas cooker, a brick barbecue and wood oven, constitutes the ideal spot for alfresco meals in the company of friends. Those wishing just to relax can sit in the panoramic lounge, furnished with sofa, armchairs and umbrella, next to the kids’ play area with swing. Finally, at the back of the house, surrounded by the three sides of the villa is a spacious inner courtyard, covered with a well-kept lawn and accessible directly from the hobby room.

Swimming Pool

Open from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday in October, the pool is south facing and enjoys excellent views over the valley. About 80 m from the villa, it is situated on the same level and can be reached across the lawn though an iron archway covered with roses. The rectangular-shaped pool, measuring 15 x 6 m with a depth varying from 1.2 to 2.5 m, is lined with PVC with a travertine border; access to the water is by Roman steps and diving board. There is lighting both inside the pool and in the surrounding area and it has a chlorine purification plant. The ca. 200 sq m solarium area surrounding the pool is paved with travertine stone and is furnished with sunbeds, wooden benches and chairs. On one side is a wrought-iron gazebo surrounded by beautiful white roses and furnished with table and chairs. Completing the pool area is a cold water shower and a handy changing room.

It can be reached from Fabro Scalo (12 miles) along the SS71 road (Fabro exit on the A1) and from the railway station of Fabro-Ficulle on the Rome���Florence line and so has excellent transport links.
