Villa | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 18

Vallocchia Villa can be rented alone, to sleep 14 persons, OR, with the cottage next door, to sleep 18 persons

The perfect villa for family and friend enormous sitting/dining room, a full sized snooker table, oodles of space and panoramic views.

Vallocchia Villa + Cottage, with Wifi, air-con + large lap pool, is a detached house, standing in its own 42 hectares of beautiful countryside.

This was a summer house for Sophia Loren, Andy Warhole, Pavorotti and Minotti.

Just 12 mins drive to Spoleto and 1 hr 15 mins to Rome.

Until recently, Spoleto was only open only to the world's elite. A tiny jewel, wrapped in the mountain swathes of Umbria, Spoleto had remained a closely guarded secret for centuries. Now, Spoleto is transformed, having shed its aristocratic inhibitions in favour of a truly Italian cosmos. Still an affluent area, it has deigned to allow other Italians to settle here, an aspiration that immediately strikes all visitors to Spoleto, such is its beauty, but one that was ruled out by the old guard, part of the European ruling class, since time began. However, Spoleto had always been a favourite holiday place for the Italian. And, in the last 15 years, the increased curiosity of the global traveller enabled Italians to open up Spoleto, filling it with bars, restaurants and shops. Thus heralding an updated version of Spoleto,albeit still a tiny mediaeval city, with tiny arched and cobbled streets, churches and museums at every twist and turn.

Vallocchia Villa has everything you could wish for, including WiFi, air-con and a dish-washer. Off with the old life and on with the new, Vallocchia Villa is mindful of the opportunity to again host glamorous parties of friends and/or family, seeking a tranquil setting, away from the world at large, where they can be themselves, be together and indulge themselves on fine foods and wines in a luxurious setting, where all the land is yours, as far as the eye can see, where there is a large lap pool with a diving board, a music system beneath a pergola besides the pool, a huge, white leather poof, where a few of you can stretch out, as many sun-loungers as you want, big umbrellas for the fair-skinned, woody, shaded areas with BBQs, a few steps away. Vallocchia Villa is welcoming a new elite of free-minded people, bound by the love of each other, the desire to be immersed in lush countryside and, yet, still have access to the "bright city lights" of Spoleto, close by, as well as the rest of the famous Umbrian cities, all within very easy reach.

Then, stepping from the blinding sun into the air-conditioned cool of the enormous drawing room (which can seat 20 persons for dining), you find a fully fitted, separate kitchen, directly off the drawing room, a snooker room, an extension to the drawing room and a bathroom. A wide, wooden staircase leads up to the 5 bedrooms and 3 other bathrooms, 2 of them ensuite.

The 5 bedrooms are configured, as follows :
Bedroom 1 : 1 large double bed/ensuite
Bedroom 2 : 2 large twin beds (or, 2 small double beds/cannot be joined)/ensuite
Bedroom 3 : 1 large double bed + 1 single bed
Bedroom 4 : 1 large double bed + 1 single bed
Bedroom 5 : 2 single beds (can be joined) + 2 bunk beds

Or, 2 single beds can placed in the sitting room area.

1 enormous sitting/dining room

1 fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room

4 bathrooms, 2 of which are ensuite

In all, this is a comfortable family villa, as perfect for peace as it is for parties.
