About Caroline Sampson

The owner of this Villa is Italian and called Federico. He is a Musician and Psycologist.

He purchased this Villa (originally constructed many hundreds of years ago and which was in need of restoration) in 1995. It was restored over a period time and the final works were completed in 2005.

Caroline Sampson purchased this villa in 1995

Why Caroline Sampson chose Umbertide

This Villa, it's location and views makes it unique and even though the restoration to the Villa was carried out some time ago, it still appears to give the impression that the work is newly completed. The photos published on this Site confirm that Frederico has taken care to maintain and restore a number of the building's original features. There are photos taken from the windows that show the "WOW & breathtaking" views.

Frederico is meticulous with the maintenance of his property and it's beautiful pool & garden. The Villa captures the sun for the majority of the day and the valley & mountain views each morning and evening are picturesque.

What makes this villa unique

The owner has an English friend (Caroline) whose role is to help guests with their bookings, and to always be on hand at the time of your holiday to ensure that you have a wonderful stay.

Wonderful spacious villa in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7 who stayed in July. What can I say, the villa is fantastic, very spacious and recently refurbished, lovely big pool and with a great view across the beautiful surrounding countryside. We loved the area, so tranquil and unspoilt and yet in a great location to visit awesome places like Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Lake Trasimene etc. I can't recommend this villa and location enough, we had a brilliant holiday!

Peaceful, rural setting with views over Umbrian countryside.

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped and spacious farmhouse, with a large pool area offering areas of full sun and shade. We stayed during the recent heatwave and the pool was an oasis!

The nearest supermarkets are 20-25mins drive away in Umbertide, though there is a small shop about 5 mins drive away. There are many restaurants locally although require driving. Well situated for sightseeing and within easy drive of Perugia and Assisi.

The owner met us on arrival and had helpfully purchased a couple of fans to help us cope with the extreme heat - thank you!

One minor point was that although the pool and rental property was for our sole use there is another property close to the pool that is rented out and we occasionally saw the person living there.

Overall we had a very enjoyable stay in this rental property and would recommend as a good base to enjoy Umbria.

A lovely peaceful spot. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay .Caroline and Federico could not have been more helpful (He even loaded the washing machine for us!) Beautiful views; secluded + relaxing. Pool was great and Villa itself was charming. We would recommend. The drive up the hill is quite steep and gravelly and we were glad of our four-wheel drive car.

Beautiful villa with lovely cool, interior and full of character. Our 3 boys loved the large to pool and the owner could not have been more helpful and friendly. Private location suited us well, only slight downside was noisy boar hunters out in the early morning!!
