Stunning Villa, With Heated Pool, Tranquil Location, close to hilltop town



Updated: 12-Oct-2016
Villa in Montone Nr. Umbertide, Umbria, Italy - Close To A Historic Fortified Town, Amazing Countryside In The Green Heart Of Italy

Casa Baccianella is a luxurious recently restored farmhouse. Thick stone walls, terracotta floors, beamed high ceilings and louvred shutters make for a calm and cool interior. There are 5 spacious bedrooms complete with ceiling fans and window screens, all with en suite bathrooms. Beautifully furnished reception rooms with open fireplaces provide ample space for reading and relaxation. The house has internet service for those who need to mix business with pleasure. For those who prefer to kick back and relax the ample library offers plenty of reading materials.

The living areas open out onto a shaded loggia for dining al fresco, and then beyond to the pool terraces with panoramic views of woods, fields and the valley. The pool has a security cover for families with young children and is heated.

The landscaped gardens contain oak, olive and walnut trees and are bounded on three sides by wooded slopes down to the valley. There is a plethora of beautiful herbs and flowers, the scents are glorious and many of these can be used in the cooking of your favourite Italian dishes.

Twice weekly maid service is provided.

The English speaking house managers are on hand to assist with tours and activities.

The beautiful hilltop town of Montone is within walking distance for those who enjoy a brisk morning stroll for Capuccino in the square.

This is a perfect retreat for both families with children of any age or groups.

About the Owner

I live in Hong Kong with my beautiful daughter Georgia and have a very busy life.

I fell in love with Casa Baccianella the moment I saw it. What struck me was its sense of peace. At the time it was a ruin and the next couple of years were spent lovingly restoring it. Some interesting and challenging times but I would never wish away those many visits to keep an eye on things, staying in Montone and getting to know the town and people. My plan is one day to retire to the house and hence the house has very much been set up as a home while ensuring its not cluttered with personal items. I spend as much time as I can at the house but sadly not nearly as much time as I would like!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a delightful family time, jumps in the pool in the morning, at least two rounds of melone ice creams in Montone main square at noon, falling asleep outside looking at the stars and long calm dinners with great wine and food. And yes the house is 6 little boys proof! Maria and family, Poland.

Two weeks in the garden of Eden! Your Villa is a sanctuary with every possible need catered for. The village of Montone is so beautiful and the morning walk there ensured we all had some exercise. Cant wait until the next time. Jenny and friends, Australia

And so our stay at lovely restful Casa Baccianella comes to an end. Two weeks of relaxation at the house alternating with days of excursions to beautiful places. And right next to us this little gem of a hilltop town, Montone. We may be leaving Casa Baccianella and Montone but Casa Baccianella and Montone are not leaving us! The Bianco family, USA

Well appointed house with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Baccianella is down a lush country road but just minutes from Montone. The house is well appointed and impressively organized. The kitchen is large and really designed for cooks. All bedrooms have an en suite that is updated and very clean. The houses thick walls meant we slept fine at night with the ceiling fans and windows open, with just the pleasant sound of frogs ribbeting across the valley as there is a small pond adjacent to the property.

The pool is large enough for lap swimming and also for four teenagers rowdy antics.

The house has everything you can think of, like high chairs, first aid kit, sunscreen, big spray, pantry basics. Plus the bedding and towels are all plush and new.

From the Owner

Montone, which is 2.5km from the house is one of those idyllic picture post card towns. Simply beautiful. Friendly people, some lovely restaurants and a wonderful place to spend time meandering or enjoying life in the square. All my guests rave about Montone and to be honest while I am there its difficult to get me away from the house/Montone! Having said that there are some many wonderful places to visit close by that one is spoilt for choice.
