Il Fienile is a cosy stone villa in Umbria and can be found at the end of a narrow and sometimes steep country lane, five minutes drive from the village of Fornole and approximately 5 km from the beautiful hilltop town of Amelia which dates back to the 12th century. The villa is surrounded by glorious countryside and the vine covered dining terrace is an idyllic spot from which to admire the extensive views across the stepped olive groves which give way to the valley below. A large open barn (fienile) with table tennis and table football, provides ample shade and overlooks the swimming pool, which is set in an area of garden above the house.

Use this as a base to explore the southern reaches of Umbria, Northern Lazio and maybe even undiscovered Abruzzo, if you fancy the drive.

Local distances: Shopping for the basics can be done in Fornole approx 2 km from the house, Montecampano 3 km or for more extensive shopping the 12th Century walled town of Amelia is just 5 km from the house. Il Fienile is well placed for touring many historic Umbrian towns: Assisi 97 km, Foligno 74 km, Spoleto 47 km, Deruta 71 km, Spello 78 km, Todi 50 km, Terni 21 km, Narni 10 km, and Orvieto 62 km. Being close to the border with Lazio also gives you access a wealth of towns such as Rieti 56 km, Viterbo 45 km, Civita Castellana 42 km and Rome 90 km. Rather than drive into the centre of Rome we recommend you drive to the station at Orte 18 km (about 15 minutes away) as it has an excellent train service to Rome central station which takes about 45 minutes.

Recommended airports: Perugia 90 km, Rome Ciampino 105 km, Rome Fiumicino 120 km, Florence 230 km.

About this location

The Umbria region

Anyone visiting one of our villas in Umbria, in the green heart of Italy, will be captivated by the beauty of its lush countryside and abundance of medieval towns and villages perched on gently rolling hills.

Umbria's central location, peace, rural simplicity, history, art and culture are some of the many reasons why our villas in Umbria remain so popular.

Whether you regularly choose Umbria or are travelling to Umbria for the first time, there is plenty to occupy your time in Italy's best kept secret. For those who want the mix of culture, history, and modern shopping that Florence offers, but like to avoid the high prices and oppressive heat of the city-centre in summer, Perugia, Amelia, Terni and Foligno are excellent alternatives.

Perugia has everything a shopaholic could wish for (including the Perugina chocolate outlet shop!), all set on a hilltop in Etruscan surroundings. It also has the only external escalators in Italy as the hills were so steep and it made more sense to have them. Assisi is a centre for pilgrimage the world over and is a few short miles south of Perugia and well worth a trip.

Although the region is extremely rural, there are many luxury villas in Umbria, all with pools. In fact many of the Villas in Umbria are second homes with the owners also living there outside the main holiday season which often helps to add charm and charater to our properties.

Similar to Tuscany, each of the Umbrian hill top towns basks in the sun, the gently rolling hills flower with poppies, vetch and wild thyme in May, fields burst with sunflowers in June, olive groves dot the hillsides and even one or two vineyards add a note of colour in the southern areas. Try the Sagrantino di Montefalco as it is unique, the vines won't grow anywhere else.

Passito a type of sweet red desert wine is also made across Umbria but the more famous whites from Orvieto and full bodied reds from Torgiano also hit the spot. A tip? Try the red wine from the Fanini estate near Petrignano del Lago as it is a Montepulciano so called “Super Tuscan” but can't be called that because the Cantina is in Umbria even if 90% of the vines aren't.
