About the property

Stunning Villa in Città di Castello, Umbria, Italy - Peaceful Location, 5 Mins Walk To Nearest Village, 4 Km To Nearest Large Town

"Villa Libellula" is a newly refurbished traditional Umbrian farmhouse that has been lovingly restored in a way that combines the comfort of modern living with the elegance and beauty of its original Italian features, such as vaulted ceilings and original chestnut beams. It is over three floors and has 4 bedrooms which can sleep 8 people. Additional beds and cots can be provided for children. Three of the bedrooms are on the top floor with 2 bathrooms and the fourth bedroom is on the ground floor with an additional bathroom. There are several large living spaces including a fabulous kitchen with all modern appliances including a Rangemaster double oven. There is also a very large private terrace on the first floor overlooking the pool. The stunning pool and spacious garden with abundant fruit trees offer the perfect setting for an enjoyable holiday. It is situated in a quiet village, just 4km from Città di Castello on the Umbrian/Tuscan border. An ideal location, easily accessible, for a relaxing holiday from which you can explore the heart of Italy. There are many historical towns to see only a short drive away. Within an hour and a half you can visit Florence, Assissi, Cortona, Siena, Lake Trasimeno or the Adriatic coast and Rome is a couple of hours by car.

About Natasha Davies

My husband and I along with our 2 children, bought and then renovated this property to create a family home. We lived in Città di Castello for 7 years, where our children went to local schools, my husband worked for a engineering company and I looked after the home. Since returning to the UK, we're very happy to share our wonderful home with our guests so that they may enjoy the delights of Umbria!

Natasha Davies purchased this villa in 2009

Why Natasha Davies chose Città di Castello

This property provides a perfect setting for a tranquil holiday in beautiful surroundings whilst being an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area. My husband did most of the renovation work himself and I helped to design it. So we absolutely love this house and hope you do too!

What makes this villa unique

There is nothing more peaceful than sitting by the pool or on the roof terrace looking out at the Umbrian mountains. All our guests have been amazed by the spectacular view!

Notes on accommodation: The Villa was restored as a family home and provides an excellent retreat for families and groups of friends of all ages. There are many extras that you don't normally find in a holiday rental, such as toys and art materials for the children, tennis rackets, a huge selection of books and DVD's that we're very happy to share with our guests. Being a 300 year old Italian farmhouse, the walls are exceptionally thick which means the house stays cool in the summer (without air-con) and warm in the winter. There is under-floor heating which works very effectively in the winter months and guests are charged at the current rate. The reviews we receive from our guests tell us that our holiday home continues to be enjoyed by many due to the high quality of the accommodation and it's location. The property is managed by a wonderful English couple, who are fluent in Italian, and would be happy to help should the need arise. Outside: The swimming pool is 10x5m and has a continuous depth of 1.5m. The pool area is surrounded by patio and sun loungers. There is also a shower for rinsing. There is a very large roof terrace off the lounge, overlooking the pool, which is great for outside dining or private sunbathing. The spacious garden has abundant fruit trees - fig, cherry, peach, apple and pear, from which you can pick and enjoy straight from the trees. There is also plenty of parking for numerous cars.

Superba seconda visita - Superb second visit

  • 5 of 5

Having visited before we knew that we would have a great time, however we weren't prepared for just how amazing this villa is (we stayed in the apartment previously).

This is an absolutely stunning place and a great location for explorers, being within driving distance of some of the amazing places Italy has to offer. It's equally great for anyone looking for a relaxing break, being situated just outside the village and having the private garden and pool.

The villa has everything you will need and more. You can choose to go exploring or just as easily relax by the pool. The locals in Piosina are very friendly and the bar there is a great local Italian experience. Further into Citta Di Castello there are a number of great places to eat and drink. Especially recommended is the locally produced gelato! We chose to visit local places as well as those further afield, including Pisa, Florence, Perugia, Venice and Lake Garda.

If you're looking for a theme park or a resort then this isn't for you, but if you're looking for a great and truly authentic Italian experience, immersed in the local culture, suitable for all the family, then we couldn't recommend this place more!

Beautiful authentic!

  • 5 of 5

We just needed a week away to unwind from the busy stress of life and work!

We couldn't have wished for a more perfect place to stay! The house and everything in it were immaculate and everything we needed was readily available for us.

The terrace was perfect for relaxing with a good bottle of local wine, the location of the villa means that it is peaceful with little or no disturbances..... Perfect for unwinding!

Natasha communicated with us regularly and ensured we knew exactly what to expect. Handy hints and information about restaurants and places to visit was really helpful to, not that we ventured far, we really did just relax!

Locally you can walk and take in the tradition of the village, but a short drive away was the more bustling Citta di Castello, worth a visit, especially on market day, or if shopping isn't your thing just while away the hours in one of the many coffee bars.

Thank you Natasha and Tony for making our visit stress free and wonderfully relaxing!
