Ubaldo is a spacious three bedroom property, fully restored in 2009, which looks towards the restored chapel. It has a patio, a garden and also a covered outdoor area which provides ideal shade on hot days and lovely views of the mountains. The accommodation is on three floors, with living on the ground floor and bedrooms on the first and second floors.
The ground floor living is open plan with a kitchen/dining room and a separate sitting area. The kitchen is a modern Italian design with granite worktops and a has a ‘look-through’ fireplace, accessed also from the sitting room which adds to Ubaldo’s charms.
Throughout Ubaldo there is exposed stonework, reclaimed chestnut beams and beautiful floors.
The master bedroom with king size bed and en suite bathroom is on the first floor. The second floor has two further bedrooms, each with twin beds and their own bathroom.
Ubaldo sleeps 6 people comfortably and provides comfortable, spacious seating and living arrangements.
Gubbio, its surrounding area, and San Vittorino in particular offers a combination of tranquility, history, culture and activities and, importantly, a slice of true Italian life. Should you tire of the views at San Vittorino, then the communal swimming pool and tennis court and extensive estate provide active alternatives. Despite being less than 15 minutes from the centre of Gubbio, San Vittorino is exceptionally peaceful with views over unspoilt countryside and an entirely undisturbed, natural setting. Rome, Florence, Assisi and Urbino are all easily accessible for day visits, and you can reach the lovely beaches of the Adriatic coast in a little over an hour. San Vittorino is managed and maintained by a local company run by people who originally lived in England, so language will be no problem. We can arrange for your fridge to be stocked on arrival if you wish, and also for mid-week cleaning. Family run, we aim to make your holiday enjoyable and stress free.

San Vittorino offers the best of both worlds. Its tranquil setting at the base of the Apennine mountain range in the Green Heart of Italy ensures beautiful views and peace and quiet. However, its easy accessibility down tarmac roads and its proximity to the medieval walled town of Gubbio as well as many other historic and beautiful points of interest mean that if you tire of the relaxation and wish to explore, it offers a viable point from which to do so. Rome and Florence are accessible for day trips by road or train. It is also just 30 minutes from St Egidio airport (Perugia) which has regular flights from Stansted.
San Vittorino traces its current origins back to a returning crusader who built a fortified home in this beautiful valley. By the 12th century a monastery had been established, with a small chapel next door which retains the restored 14th century fresco depicting St Ubaldo, the patron saint of Gubbio. With the demise of the monastery the main building, which has been extended many times over the years, became a farm and a number of outbuildings were added.
We have carefully combined ancient and modern, reclaimed chestnut beams throughout the properties and antique terracotta flooring ensures the properties all have character.
The communal areas on site offer relaxation and entertainment with a swimming pool and tennis court. And of course, we never tire of the view!
A surcharge will apply for logs and central heating if used.
