Luxury Villa/Self catering apartments with pool in Umbria (sleeps 2 - 8 guests) - Apartment Ulivo (sleeps 2 - 4 + cot)



Updated: 15-Sep-2016
Private Villa or 2 Apartments with stunning infinity swimming pool - hillside location with incredible views over Umbria & Tuscany

Villa Bastiola is a traditional Umbrian stone farmhouse over 200 years old, situated on the hillside at Comunaglia in Umbria, on the border with Tuscany, with stunning views over the surrounding hills and valleys.

Extensive gardens with infinity pool (mineral salt purification system), sun terrace, gazebo, olive grove, play area (playhouse, sandpit, play kitchen & accessories), outdoor games and swing set.

The villa is divided into two lovely self catering apartments which can be rented independently or by larger groups as a private villa rental.

Apartment Ulivo

The first floor of the villa has been beautifully restored providing luxury self catering accommodation for 2 or 4 guests. There are 2 en suite double bedrooms, a large living room & fully fitted kitchen with dining table & chairs.

Apartment Quercia

On the upper floor, this lovely self catering apartment for 2 - 4 guests has 2 double bedrooms, a family bathroom with walk-in shower, large living room with dining table and chairs, fully fitted kitchen and kitchen terrace with bistro table & chairs.

There is a laundry room on the ground floor with washing machine, detergents, clothes dryer and pegs.

Swimming Pool

Measuring 10m x 5m, the pool is cleaned with a mineral salt purifying system and offers the perfect solution for guests to enjoy the pool without the drying effects of chlorine. The pool measures 1.20m deep throughout and there are steps to help get in and out of the pool.

Pool towels are provided and there are 8 sun loungers around the poolside as well as table and chairs – enough space for everyone to relax and enjoy the view and soak up the Umbrian sun!

There is a mini-bar fridge in the under-pool area on the right hand side saving a trip back to the villa for the all important prosecco, beer, water & soft drinks!


There is a small loggia by the entrance to Apartment Ulivo, a front courtyard, gazebo at the back of the villa with table and chairs for dining alfresco, sun terrace with rattan sofa, chairs & coffee table and gardens with olive grove. New last year, a huge stone BBQ was put in next to the sun terrace, perfect for cooking for lots of guests! Stunning views from the sun terrace in the garden, perfect for relaxing at the end of a days' sightseeing.

The villa has retained many of the original features including ancient chestnut and oak beams, terracotta flooring over two hundred years old, and a pietra serena fireplace and wardrobe.

A great base for those seeking to experience the rich culture, regional cuisine, vineyards, medieval hilltop towns and countryside that this stunning region of Italy has to offer. Assisi, Gubbio, Cortona, Perugia are all close by.

About the Owner

I moved to Umbria in 2003 for work and loved the area so much that I stayed here! Starting a new life, I also met my husband Marco here and together we bought Villa Bastiola which we have been restoring over the last few years. Together with our little daughter Emma, we are really happy to have had the opportunity to rent out the luxury apartment on the first floor, giving us the chance to meet guests from all over the world!

Sadly, work has meant that we have had to relocate back to the UK so we are no longer there to greet our guests personally but we continue to rent out the Villa and try to return as often as we can.

Speaks English, Italian

Great apartment and location!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples and enjoyed our week's stay in Villa Bastiola. We were greeted with a wonderful welcome pack, including two bottles of local wine. Easy, gated parking and close proximity to major roads were a plus! The kitchen was well equipped. While the bedrooms were small, they were very comfortable. The owners had lots of tour books available and were very accessible during the booking process. We especially loved sitting outside and enjoying wine as the sun set in Umbria. Stay here if you can...you will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review from such lovely guests! Thank you so much! We always try to give as much help and info as possible during the booking process. We are happy to leave a welcome pack so that guests feel comfortable and settled as soon as they arrive and don't have to dash straight off to the shops for something to eat or drink. The view is amazing!! It has to be seen to be believed!

From the Owner

We bought Villa Bastiola as it is near to the area where Marco grew up and is close to his family and Emma's grandparents! We wanted to find an old stone farmhouse with lots of character, great views, lots of garden, olive trees but still close to amenities and easy to reach the beautiful towns and cities of Umbria and Tuscany. We were lucky! Villa Bastiola is just what we wanted!

From the Owner

The apartment provides the perfect accommodation for guests looking to visit the medieval villages and hilltop towns of Umbria and Tuscany. Cortona, Siena, Perugia, Montone, Gubbio, Assisi, Spoleto, Sansepolcro are all within an easy drive of the apartment. The garden has a lovely terrace looking out over the panorama, perfect for relaxing after a long day sightseeing. Just down the hill (3 mins walk!) is a great trattoria/pizzeria which means that our guests don't have to self cater if they don't want too. They can simply walk down to the restaurant and don't have to worry about driving home.
