Beautifully renovated homes, close to Gubbio - Communal Pool And Tennis Court - Tranquil Location, 12 Minute Drive From Medieval Town Of Gubbio
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.

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.

About the Owner
Ultissimo have two award-winning restoration projects both based in the Green Heart of Italy. We are a London-based property developer working only in Italy. Both of our exclusive developments in Umbria have eight properties and three are available for rental in each. Both set in idyllic rural locations, with tarmac roads to the properties and both Rancale and San Vittorino offer access to all amenities.
From the Owner
“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.”

From the Owner
“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!”
