Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

Bazzano Superiore is 5 miles from the historic centre of Spoleto.

In a charming hill-top village, below the snow-line, on the edge of the world, a tapestry of vineyards, olive groves, poppy and sunflower fields, hazy swathes of blue cornflowers, is suffused into a vast plain of coloured strips and squares of green, blue and purple. And, in the reflection of your eye, I see the mountains beyond and I see myself in Assisi, Gubbio and Spello, a pin prick of famous cities, all within a spectacular 1 hour drive.

Behind you, stands the stately Manor House, a holiday home, used only from July 25 until the end of August, by the owners, a global strategist, and, his wife, an astrophysicist, specialising in the surface of Mars. Crossing the courtyard from the Manor House to the old coachhouse, the luxuriously converted Villa Lusso, a spacious, detached cottage, overlooking the vast gardens, the pool and the spiritual visions below.

With WiFi, Villa Lusso has 1 twin bedroom (beds can be joined), 1 double bedroom (with walk in closet), 1 single bedroom with small double bed and ensuite shower room, 1 bathroom with full sized tub, 1 large sitting/dining room with fire-place, 1 separate fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer + 1 cloakroom (with WC + washing machine + ironing facilities). Stepping outside Villa Lusso, down 8 steps and you are on the large covered terrace, seats 8, with sensational views of the world unfurling below.

Dazzlingly beautiful gardens, with walkways alongside an ornamental fish pond, red fish darting through the blue, green and yellow rippling images of flowers, trees and sky, and, through private woodland, dappled sunlight, playing on your skin.

A small bus stops opposite the walled Manor House, next to the church, 5 times/day, 8 am to 8 pm. It trundles around all the hill-top villages on its way to Bazzano. From here, it takes just 20 mins or so to arrive in central Spoleto.

2 miles away, down a swirling, empty country road, is a fabulous restaurant, set in sumptious grounds, where, in the summer, you will find upwards of 300 diners eating everything from pizza to truffles to pasta and steak, washed down by great local wines. And, always at modest rates. Because this is a local restaurant. No matter that the occasional VIP drops by. Everyone is very discreet.
