About the property

This wonderful Villa "Casa dei Santi " is generously proportioned family home which has been carefully restored and furnished with a mix of traditional and contemporary styles that give a feeling of comfort and being "home from home". The Villa is situated in a very elevated position in the mountains with breath-taking mountain views, over the Tiber Valley and is secluded (very private) by a colourful Mediterranean garden, olive groves and protected woodland. The Villa also has a large vegetable garden with fresh produce being available to the guests during their holiday. The large and solar heated pool is located in the garden and its terrace is open to the spectacular views.

Located in the garden and in amongst the woodland is a large & cost wood cabin (photos attached) that can sleep an additional 4 people to the 6 people in the main Villa itself. This cabin has it's own bathroom, kitchen & living room, and is secure for the children to sleep outside and enjoy the wildlife and rhythm of nature in the woods and surrounding countryside.

The main Villa itself has on its ground floor a large kitchen, dining room (dining table with seating for 10 people) & comfortable sitting room with an open fire. There is a large larder full of homemade marmalades and wonderful olive oil from the 160 trees in the garden. The kitchen is well-equipped with new dishwasher and appliances. There is a also a large laundry room, downstairs bathroom that guests generally use for changing and showering after using the pool.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms (2 doubles and one double or 2 singles) an ensuite bathroom and the house's main bathroom with a hydro-massage bathtub. There is a large open plan lounge with pine floors, open fireplace and confortable sofas and furnishings. All windows in both the Villa and Cabin have nets for mosquitoes.

The Villa has many spacious outside terraces, patios and a large outside kitchen under a pergola covered in wisteria, jasmin & roses for outside dining. There is also a large pergola covered terrace outside the kitchen for enjoying breakfast with views over the garden and open countryside.

For any booking for more than one week, guests will have gifted to them a traditional Umbrian dinner at the Villa at the expense of the Owners.

About Caroline Sampson

This Villa has Italian owners, with the man of the house being a top fashion designer working in Milan. The family have owned this Villa for 25 years and which has until recently been the main family home. The restoration of the property was carried out by the family over a number of years to create a real homely and comfortable environment particularly for children. The garden is particularly enchanting and colourful with masses of different species of trees, plants and flowers. There is a pergola of grapevines, vegetable gardens and 160 old olive trees that are harvested every October to produce fantastic oil that you will have the opportunity to try during your visit

Caroline Sampson purchased this villa in 1977

Guestbook comments from the manager

Caroline picked us up when we arrived by car, and showed us the complete house and property. It was love at first sight!! Everything was so fine - she left us, and we thought, it was a dream!! Although it was October and pretty cold, we could use the pool several times - clean, fresh & revitalising (just cold) - we had much fun!! The region is very beautiful - the hills full of olive trees, many oaks, persimone trees, thyme & salvia - starting in the garden and ending at the horizon. The house is so beautiful!! We enjoyed every evening in front of the open fire - the kitchen is duly equipped - we cooked and it was fun to be there!! Caroline and the owner are very friendly, helpful and there was always an answer within minutes. Highlight for the kids : some cats in the garden, enough space for hiking or basketball or explore the thousands of corners. We can recommend this unique opportunity to every family - go visit beautiful Perugia (25 minutes by car) a wonderful town to discover. We visited it 3 times in 6 days. The house is a calm place to relax and to see the beauty of Italy at its best!!

A stunning home from home

  • 5 of 5

It started well when Caroline met us at a nearby service station to guide us in the rest of the way (no chance of getting lost, always a bonus!) and just got better. The main house is perched on a hillside with stunning views across the valley and is a true home from home with all the comforts and amenities you could wish for. The grounds around the house are extensive and there are are olive, fruit and hazelnut trees as well as plenty of grape vines with delicious red grapes and a green house providing a prolific number of tomatoes (as well as some of hottest scotch bonnet chillis I have tasted!).

The pool is wonderful with a warm shower close by and and the outside kitchen and dining area was used extensively! We were made to feel very welcome and the house is a great base for exploring wth Assisi and Perugia all within easy reach.

A few other things to note as well:

- Beds were all comfortable and firm

- Kitchen(s) very well equipped

- All windows and doors have excellent bug screens on the them, not something you find in every rental property

- Preserves and chutneys from the food grown around the property are delicious!

A Wonderful Holiday in a Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We all had the most fantastic holiday at Casa dei Santi, Pierantonio. The house itself was ever better than we'd expected. It was not only gorgeous, but also really comfortable, with lots of space to do your own thing but also to hang out together as a group. The outside space is enormous, with home-grown tomatoes and herbs in the greenhouse. We spent a lot of time by the pool and also on the terrace where we could admire the views, while sipping a very reasonably-priced local wine! Even the two teenagers gave it the thumbs up.

It is a really nice area, with easy access to get to Perugia, Assisi and so on. In the near-by town, there is a local restaurant where we ate a number of times. There is a good supermarket about ten minutes away by car.

Finally, Caroline - the agent - was lovely. She made everything really easy for us and couldn't do enough. The owner too - in fact who even cooked us an Italian dinner one night.

Can't wait to go back.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had such a great stay here. The house was very comfortable and well appointed, the view across the valley was always captivating (especially on a warm summers evening) and the pool was something else! So many areas to eat alfresco and enjoy the ground / views including the comprehensively equipped garden kitchen. Caroline Sampson and the owner did everything to make sure our stay was perfect.
