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.

The addition of a games room on the lower ground floor creates another space to enjoy. The house is comfortably furnished reflecting the taste of the owner and thoroughly in keeping with the farmhouse aspect of the property.

Ai Rosmarini is reached via a leafy dirt road climbing upwards (not suitable for people carriers) and the house is set against a magnificent backdrop of oak forest, its seclusion providing relaxed and peaceful surroundings.

Todi, set in truffle country is 6 km from the house and offers good restaurants, shops, banks and a weekly market. The nearest local trattoria is only 2 km away and further shopping is to be found at Ponte Rio, 9 km away, with three good patisseries, shops, supermarket, cantina for the purchase of wines and a takeaway pizzeria. The towns of Perugia and Orvieto are both about 30-40 minutes drive, Spoleto may be reached in about 50 minutes, Rome and Siena 1 ½ hours drive and Florence 2 hours.
