Exquisite - in every detail!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning location

The well-maintained exterior provides only a small clue as to what is inside. This villa has been restored by a professional architect, every detail is perfect.

Our family spent a very happy vacation here enjoying perfect weather. All day in the pool, evenings on the terrace soaking up the view and the local produce!

The villa is very comfortable and well appointed, designed to provide a cool retreat at midday.

We highly recommend a stay in this villa. Nothing was too much trouble for Caroline Sampson and the owner they will ensure your stay will be relaxed and enjoyable. M&M IOW

Wow - what a villa!

  • 5 of 5

wow! we were certainly pleasantly surprised when arriving at this villa.

its spacious! the scenery is out of this world, the peace and quiet you have always wanted is here.

The villa is sooo well equipped, it has everything for every member!

The pool is big, and lovely enough to throw your things about it and relax its so inviting.

The nice thing about this villa is though it is in the mountains and peaceful its not millions of miles away from the real world. Umbertine is within 15 minutes driving distance which is a lovely sweet town that does lovely pizzas and then you can go into Perugia.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone my 13 year old was with us and she loved it!

Thank you so much for accommodating us so well.
