THERE IS NO RESTAURANT AT VILLA MARIANNA - A TRANQUIL ENVIRONMENT.
Set in 100s of acres of private land, it is all yours while you are at Villa Marianna. You can walk for hours in any direction. Indeed, St Francis and his desciples used to pass Villa Marianna on their journeys between Assisi and Rieti.
There are a few farmsteads on the land so you will see a handful of locals tending the land, on which our cows, sheep, horses, geese, ducks and peacocks graze.
Free high speed WiFi in every apartment.
With large pool - 120 sq mts, this is a very large fabulous 16C stone manor house (car necessary) - 5 apartments. 7 miles from central Spoleto, above Bazzano, on the side of Spoleto towards Assisi - excellent location for sight-seeing.
Close to Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto + Rome. And, Spoleto, teaming with shops, bars and restaurants, is just 7 miles.
From the villa, amazing panorama towards Assisi that stretches over valleys, mediaeval hill-top towns, olive groves and vineyards, all the way to a seeming infinity ! Large private patio areas and balconies outside the apartments, with plenty of tables and parasols etc for al fresco eating. Picnic anywhere you choose in the extensive grounds. Lounge around the pool, next to which is a toilet. Chill out exactly where the mood takes you. No end of space in the acres surrounding you for those who wish to "get away" and be reclusive.
While the private pool is available to all our guests, to date, the pool is often quiet, since most of our guests in central Spoleto do not have cars and/or are not interested in a pool property. Indeed, the pool is often empty for large chunks of the day.
Private car park for residents.Our peacocks, hens, goats and horses in next field.
High speed internet available, free of charge, via WIFI or cable.
Please note that the large pool is not available to the public. It is ONLY available to our holiday rental guests ! And, to date, it has been often quiet and, at times, empty !
Ideal for lovers and families alike.
A romantic, mountain retreat, above Bazzano Superior, with sensational views, where there is so much space that guests can do what they like, without feeling inhibited. Quiet nooks and crannies for lovers, wide open sandy areas for children, spacious patio areas for dining alfresco, endless pilgrim trails for walkers and cyclists, heavenly views, bird-song, a huge pool for family gatherings, local restaurants with proximity to the Umbrian 'hot-spots' ....Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Spello, Casteluccio, Norcia, Trevi, Montefalco, and, Rome, a mere 1.15 mins, by train, or, Spoleto, just 20 mins, by car, via the quiet Giro D'Italia route, a spectacularly beautiful country road. And, while exploring Umbria is a must for most, if you tear yourselves away from this mind-blowingly beautiful and historic villa in the hills above Bazzano, the buzzy, fairy-tale city of Spoleto will satiate a yearning for the bright lights with shops, bars, restaurants and churches, amidst its arched, cobbled streets.
Villa Marianna, a fabulous 16C manor house with WiFi in every apt, its rooms large, light and airy. In an intensely romantic setting, the 5 self-catering apartments are well-spaced from each other : A + C occupy the entire 1st floor, B + D occupy the entire ground floor, each apartment separated by spacious hall-ways, and E in a position on its own, annexed at the end of the house.
Hewn from the rocks, this majestic manor house looks over the pool and the magnificent, panoramic landscape, embracing monasteries, olive groves, woods, vineyards, fields of poppies, cherry orchards and hill-top villages, furling and unfolding through valleys and across a grand plain towards Assisi.
This is a great walking area and there are many marked paths from Villa Marianna to a diversity of places, several following in the footsteps of St Francis !
If you are seeking an intimate experience with Nature, fun and frolics by the pool, and, easy access to all the "hot spots" of Umbria, then, Villa Marianna is for you.

2 Bathrooms/2 WCs....
On the 1st floor, it has staggeringly beautiful, panoramic views from its large windows that overlook the pool, the vineyards, the olive groves and give way to a vast landscape with valleys, mountains and woods that undulate, cascade and writhe towards Assisi, embracing every famous hill-top city you can think of....... Spoleto, Spello, Trevi, Orvieto, Perugia and Montefalco, in its sweep.
A very large apartment, it has 1 sitting/dining room - seats 6, with a fully fitted kitchen, 3 triple bedrooms (each with double bed and single bed) + 2 bathrooms.
Simply, but, elegantly, furnished, this apartment is perfect for families and lovers alike.
Booked together with APT A, the whole of the top floor is, in effect, privatised, and the 2 apartments can be seamlessly joined to become 1 extremely large apartment that can sleep up to 12 persons comfortably.
APT C has a private patio area at the back of the house, at the bottom of a short flight of steps, with a view of the woods.
There are some steps leading to the apartment but none inside the apartment. However, there are steps from the back of the house, leading to the large communal terraced area, overlooking the pool. But, you can avoid these steps and walk round the house directly to the communal areas and/or the pool.
Worried about steps ? No need !
NO STEPS, if you book APT B, D or E, everything is on 1 level. A short flight of steps to APT A or C - once inside, everything is on one level.
However, there are steps from the back of the house, leading to the large communal terraced area, overlooking the pool. But, you can avoid these steps and walk round the house directly to the communal areas and/or the pool.
For the elderly or infirm, you can drive a car directly to the pool via a separate lane.
The pool is 110 sq mts, a large pool with plenty of room for everyone all around it. And, there is a WC.
It is a short walk from the villa, about 2 minutes, downhill. However, if you are feeling very lazy and wish to take a picnic to the side of the pool, you can take the car down a special pool lane, right to the side of the pool.
All our guests are invited to use the pool. However, most of our “non-pool” guests either do not have cars and/or are not interested in the pool. Therefore, to date, the pool has remained quiet much of the time and, at times, it is empty.
There is a large sandy area next to pool has a few swings, climbing frames + a slide for young children.
There is a private car-park adjacent to Villa Marianna....However, our guests are allowed to park closer to the villa, if there is room. The public, who will use the restaurant, MUST park in the car-park.
For parties in excess of 4 persons.....
One of the most impressive features of APTs A, B, C + D is the sheer size of these apartments !
APT A + APT C occupy the entire upper floor and, when booked together, create a totally private area because the spacious hall that divides these 2 apartments becomes part of a super-large apartment in a naturally 'privatised' area. Together, they can sleep up to 12 persons.
OR, if you were to book APTs A, B, C, D + E, the manor house could sleep up to 25 persons.
Discounted rates for the simultaneous booking of more than 1 apartment. Please enquire.
Brief description of Spoleto, 7 miles away....
Spoleto is akin to a giant, fairy-tale castle. Sprinkled with bars, restaurants and shops, peppered with piazzas, Spoleto sits magestically amidst a maze of tunnelled, cobbled lanes and alley-ways, all leading skywards to the famous Rocca, the aquaduct and, some of the best views in the world. A surreal setting, a stage-set in the making, fringed by mountains, olive groves, vineyards, mediaeval monasteries, towns, cities and tiny hill-top villages - all beckoning a visit, Spoleto is truly a temptress. Succumb to her beauty and you must use all your will-power to leave. Quite simply, Spoleto is the most captivating city in Italy, never mind Umbria, Venice and Florence, being on a par.
Venice has the water. Florence has the Uffici. Spoleto has the mountains. All three have a history to be reckoned with. All three bedazzle us with their rich cultures, their European, aristocratic connections and their sheer beauty. But, Spoleto has the upper hand for the world traveller. It resists tourism with its associated inflated rates and tacky goods on sale ! You are invited to visit Spoleto, but, not as a tourist. You will be welcomed like a long lost member of the family ! Treated like a king. And, you will pay the same rates as all the locals, especially when you pay attention to all our recommended restaurants, bars and gelaterias.

The parking is secure in that it is on private land but the cars are not locked away in a car-park.
The private grounds around the villa extend for miles with many criss-crossing marked tracks for the walkers amongst you, many following in the footsteps of St Francis.
Welcome Pack contains toiletries (inc toilet paper, shampoo + soap), food (inc olive oil) and wine to start you off.
|Further details outdoors|
The grounds surrounding the pool and the house are vast. You can walk or cycle for hours in any direction. Nearby is the famous Giro D'Italia cycle trail that was deliberately chosen for its beautiful location.
The track leading to Villa Marianna is an un-made up road for several metres - about 1 minute by car. However, it has been flattened and is easily driveable. Nonetheless, it is only a few minutes drive max in either direction before you hit a made-up road that will take you to your nearest restaurant, just 4 miles away, or to central Spoleto, 7 miles away, or to your nearest supermarket, 5 miles away.
The large private pool (120 sq mts) is open to all our non-pool guests. Often the pool is quiet or empty. There is plenty of space around it to accommodate many people. However, while there is an open invite to all our guests, very few guests staying in non pool apartments take us up on the invite. This is because the majority of people who enjoy pool life, actually book a property with a pool on site. Our non-pool guests tend to be more interested in museums and art, fine dining and shopping, when they visit Spoleto.
A deposit of 25% is required to secure a booking.
