Villa Pavone is in the middle of a 120-hectare agricultural farm which stretches over a verdant valley at the same height of the secure medieval hamlet of Montone, a small village which is listed as one of the most beautiful hamlets in the world.
Almost the whole land of the farm is actually pasture or range, being used to breed cattle of the famous Chianina breed. Cultivations and breeding of animals are developed with organic methods. The old countryside houses have been restored to host guests in small apartments which still keep the simple warm and cozy furnishing style of country homes.
At your arrival at the villa, you will notice a group of age-old buildings in grey stones surrounded by the verdant countryside scenery. Porticos and outdoor staircases render the façades picturesque. In front of the villa, there is a large courtyard around which the outdoor spaces available to all guests are distributed: the swimming-pool, the sun-drenched area, the gazebo, the barbecue, and the playground for kids.
You will be greeted by the kind and friendly proprietors: they will soon make you plunge into the relaxing atmosphere of a simple and tranquil vacation where you will be in contact with nature and all the activities developed in the countryside.
All around you will soon notice that the animals are kept free: a couple of some splendid peacocks and several cats, just to begin with. And there also the shelters under which cows and calves are placed, kept in outdoor areas not far from the houses so that you can easily feel in the air the perfume of stables, typical of real life in the countryside and not a trait invented by tourist tales…
An extraordinary resource of the farm is the spring of mineral water which flows not far from the house: its temperature is the same all year round, which means it comes from deep underground. During summer you will find it delightful and unique to get fresh water straight from its source!
Also in the place, it is possible to purchase products from the farm, vegetables, salamis, and homemade sweets, not mentioning the opportunity to taste super-size grilled steaks taken from the Chianina breed. Breakfast and dinner is available upon booking.
The farm is located within a natural reserve area where hunting is forbidden. Mountains bikes are available for you to visit the place and surroundings. In the farm, you will also find a lake where you can go fishing and a bocce field. You may also see all the activities which are run inside the farm, especially apiculture. As guests of the farm, you will be able to attend and have a discount on a thermal bath establishment in Umbertide, only 5 km (about 3 miles) away.

The Umbria region
Umbria, located in the middle of the Italian peninsula, above Latium (the region of Rome) and next to Tuscany, is the only region of Italy that does not have access to the Mediterranean. Despite this, it possesses, as you might have already heard, a "vocation for beauty".
The region is well known for its picturesque settings, the lightness and purity of the air, the presence of thermal and mineral water springs, the lakes and rivers and the spectacular waterfalls. Here life flows slowly, and people like to cling to their ancient traditions, keeping them alive through history.
Umbria is a region of mountains, hills and valleys. It is crossed by the Appenines mountains, which often slope down into gentle hills and allow for charming valleys crossed by rivers, such as the Tiber valley (the Tiber will eventually reach Rome) and the Nera valley, through which the Chiascio and Topino Rivera flow. In such a varied landscape expect to find the largest waterfall of Italy, Le Marmore, as well as lakes of volcanic origin, such as Lake Trasimeno and Lake Piediluco.
Umbria is also a region of small medieval town and villages, artistic gems which have maintained their original aspect and are at a short distance from one another. They all preserve noteworthy works of art, in the churches, in the art galleries and in the characteristic squares. The mystery of the Etruscan stones, the boldness of the Roman works, the pureness of the Christian architecture and the mildness of the Renaissance paintings are all to be found within the borders of Umbria.
Stroll brick-paved streets and admire balconies draped with colourful flowers; discover nature, medieval art and tradition. Welcome to Montone, where nearly 880 years of history would inspire anyone: families, romantics, nature lovers and tranquillity-seekers alike.
Montone is not very popular, but you'll be surprised of this anonymity because, once arrived, it's really hard not to fall in love with it. The village is situated on top of a hill, at 482 mt above the sea level and 40km from Perugia, overlooking the confluence of the rivers Tevere and Carpina... an authentic intact medieval jewel!
Experience the heritage of "uno dei 100 borghi più belli d'Italia" - one of the most beautiful 100 hamlets in Italy - walking through narrow corridors and tortuous enchanting alleys, alternated by large flights of steps to reach the old town centre.
The village is surrounded by imposing walls, holding the stately bell towers and the magnificent Rocca di Braccio, whose remains have been ably restored (after the destruction, in 1478 at the hand of Pope Sixtus IV) and suggest the idea of its real importance.
The history of Montone followed, step by step, the ups and downs of the noble family of Fortebracci, until the XV, when the town reached its maximum splendour thanks to Braccio da Montone.
Braccio da Montone was a great commander of a group of mercenaries, famous to be a cunning strategist and unscrupulous politician, that the 28th of August 1414, transformed Montone into a county and became his earldom. Braccio da Montone was the protagonist of one of the most audacious attempts to create, within the central Italy, an independent state from the Papal States.
Luxuriant landscapes and pure fresh healthy air are the worthy frame of this unmissable hamlet: it's hard to suggest prearranged itineraries... better if you personally discover unpredictable sites, enjoy the stunning panoramic views and the vibrant, but quiet, everyday life of the local craftsman's studios and modest little houses secured within the ancient city walls.
