It is said that Umbria is the centre of the world, Foligno is the centre of Umbria, and, in a certain bar in Foligno, there’s a billiard table which is the very epicentre of it all. Of course this is romantic nonsense, so why mention it? To introduce San Gregorio, which is nowhere near Foligno, but it does have a pristine, full sized Italian billiard table for your enjoyment!

A tarmac lane, lined with ancient umbrella pines, takes you to this quiet country house 15 km north of Perugia and only a few kilometres from the main road. The original roof beams overhead and the authentic doors and windows, with ingenious old catches, discreetly make the point that this house is the genuine article. There are cool terracotta tiles underfoot as you step out of bed or wander into the big farmhouse kitchen for a reviving espresso.

You enter the ground floor of the house by either the huge sitting room, with lots of inviting sofas and that billiard table, or via a well-equipped kitchen. This opens conveniently onto a splendid shady dining terrace: one of a plethora of pleasant outdoor sitting areas. There’s also a handsome double bedroom, with views across to hilltop Civitella, and a bathroom on this floor too. Outside, brick steps lead to an airy loggia on the first floor with chairs and coffee table. From here, you enter the original farmhouse kitchen with its old dining table, open fireplace and authentic atmosphere of times past (plus all the modern cook could wish for of course!). The pretty first floor sitting room has glorious views from its deep windows. Both handsomely decorated bedrooms on this floor have stylish en suite bathrooms.

A vineyard and olive trees cover much of the 2½ acre grounds, while around the house there’s a well-established garden. There’s a lovely arched barn for shady parking and even a fridge by the pool to ensure well chilled bubbly is always to hand.

The Umbria region

Umbria offers two excellent 18 hole golf courses, ideal for a day (or several!) on the green during your holiday

Perugia Golf Club

Located on the edge of Perugia at Santa Sabina, Perugia’s golf club is set in gently undulating parkland with an 18 hole par 72 course. Cunningly redesigned by David Mezzacane in the early 1990s - this small, richly planted course is a treat for any keen golfer. The club has a friendly bar and a rather nice restaurant too. The pro shop is stocked with stylish Italian golfing necessities from shoes to gloves and all the latest gear. If you are dropping in for a day's pleasure on the green, you can rent clubs for just 30 euro a day.


Antognolla Golf

Located half way between Perugia and Umbertide in the heart of Umbria, the Antognolla golf course offers an especially picturesque setting for this superb course set in 600 hectares of nature reserve that is the Antognolla Estate. This is an 18 hole par 71 course designed by Robert Trent Jones II - he designed the Celtic Manor course which hosted the 2010 Ryder Cup, so you know you’ll be in for a satisfying challenge. You’ll find smooth greens and pristine fairways, a fine driving range, golf carts aplenty and an excellent clubhouse and restaurant. The pro shop offers all you’d expect, plus delights like locally sourced cashmere jumpers and amusing candles in the shape of gold balls. Summer’s Leases guests renting one of the luxurious villas on the estate are automatically entitled to a 20% discount of green fees and a 10% discount in the club’s restaurant. The views and scenery at Antognolla are simply stunning. Non playing partners might enjoy a trip to the Wednesday morning market at Umbertide or a trip into Perugia as mentioned above. The mini-metro stop at Madonna Alta is 20 minutes drive from Antognolla, so it would be easy to organise a day to please both players and non-players.

"Great getaway spot"

This is a very nice spot for a quiet vacation ..We were there for 5 weeks and got to know it quite well ..The house is large and consists of 2 separate living quarters ..It is an old italian villa tha… More

We naturally followed up the poor 'cleanliness of bathroom' score with Harry. We believe Rita keeps the bathrooms spotlessly clean, so this came as a surprise. He responded "I guess that cleanliness was not the relevant topic" and enlarged that he felt the terracotta floor was inappropriate for a bathroom. This is clearly a matter of taste in an Italian farmhouse.
