Description from owner

Description

Your holiday home is just outside San Mamiliano, a tiny medieval hamlet in the breathtaking Valnerina area of southern Umbria, far off the beaten tourist track, yet within easy reach of the main sites. The accommodation is part of a typical Umbrian 'casale', a splendid villa which probably dates back to the 16th century, and possibly much further. There are two self-catering apartments, restored to a very high standard. The house is set in its own extensive grounds, just outside the village. The property has an unusually large swimming pool, with stunning views over the surrounding hills and valleys. Particularly suitable for two families or groups of friends.
This beautiful and unspoilt corner of Umbria has something to offer all year round. You can roast chestnuts by the fire in Autumn, eat new olive oil (and watch it being made) on bruschetta in Winter, pick wild asparagus from the hillsides in Spring and have barbecues round the pool in Summer (lit for night-time swims).

Here, you won't find coach loads of tourists. Nor will you find yourself sitting next to other holidaymakers when you eat out at the excellent country trattorias, of which there are a number within easy reach. There are spectacular walks and horse riding, tennis, canoeing and white water rafting (including some descents suitable for children) all available nearby. There are also many little known local treasures, which the owners will be glad to point out. These include the highest waterfalls in Europe, an exquisite 7th century frescoed abbey and several abandoned hilltop villages, which can be reached on foot and are idyllic spots for a picnic. Also ideally situated to explore other parts of central Italy, including day trips to Rome and Florence.

Further details outdoors

Lovely as the interior is, for many of our guests, it is the outside that makes this property so special -- the unbelievable views, the swallows dipping down over the pool at sunset, the fireflies putting on a spectacular show in late May, June, the smell of the wild flowers on the hillsides and the sound of the nightingales as you eat dinner down by the pool. The house is set in its own extensive grounds, and guests have the use of all of them. There are plenty of areas to sit, read, eat or sunbathe, depending on whether you want sun or shade. The property has an unusually large swimming pool, with stunning views over the surrounding hills and valleys.San Mamiliano is the perfect place for a family holiday, and children will receive an especially warm welcome. But it is also a very romantic setting and an ideal place to chill out and de-stress. When Italian-English owners Mario, Clare and their children are in residence (in a separate part of the property, most weekends and the summer), we do our best to give guests all the space and privacy they want. But we are also happy to help out in any way, by pointing out special places to visit, booking trattorias or advising on the best places to buy good local products such as olive oil and truffles. Clare will be happy to take guests horse-riding on the beautiful mountains nearby, while Mario is always pleased to chat about one his favourite subjects -- wine. Although the pool is shared, it is an unusually large one, with plenty of room in and out of the water. Many of our guests return year after year.

This part of Umbria is stunning in Spring and Autumn too and we offer guests a warm welcome year-round. Ask about out special offer packages which can be tailored to suit and can last just a few days or more. They can be based on self-catering or B&B, with optional dinner. These breaks may include: spectacular walks (self-guided or with guide) to abandoned hill villages or mountains with 360 degree views, complete with delicious picnic provided; a fascinating session watching a truffle-hunting dog search in the woods for what is known locally as the black gold; a visit to a winery to taste some excellent wines in beautiful Montefalco. We can also offer horse riding and even cooking lessons from a Spoleto chef who will teach you how to prepare a meal based on local ingredients, including fresh pasta and truffles (you can agree the menu together), which you will then eat with superb local wines.

Location description from owner

The Umbria region

San Mamiliano is an excellent base to explore all the main sites in Umbria (Spoleto 20 mins/Assisi/Perugia/Todi/Orvieto 40 mins) and then retreat to peace and quiet at the end of the day. It is too small to feature on most maps. The nearest bigger villages are Ferentillo and Montefranco. But in spite of its peaceful location, it is easy reachable from the main A1 motorway, so extremely well located for anyone interested in exploring some of the many famous cultural and culinary landmarks of central Italy.

San Mamiliano

San Mamiliano is tucked away in a hidden corner of Umbria. Here, you won't find coach loads of tourists. Nor will you find yourself sitting next to other holidaymakers when you eat out at the excellent country trattorias, of which there are a number within easy reach. There are spectacular walks and horse riding, tennis, canoeing and white water rafting (including some descents suitable for children) all available nearby. There are also many little known local treasures, which the owners will be glad to point out. These include the highest waterfalls in Europe, an exquisite 7th century frescoed abbey and several abandoned hilltop villages, which can be reached on foot and are idyllic spots for a picnic.
Other must-sees are the exquisite ancient Roman settlement of Carsulae, the beautiful hill towns of Trevi, Spello, Bevagna and Montefalco, many of them famous for their excellent wines and olive oil.
Spoleto is a Roman, mediaeval and Renaiss jewel, with wonderful museums, shops and restaurants and a lively programme of music, opera, theatre and dance, especially in summer.
Many of the surrounding villages stage festas from Spring to Autumn, a chance to witness time-honoured traditions, folklore and costumed processions, and sample some of the very best Umbrian cooking alongside the locals.
Slightly further afield, you can opt for a terrific day out in Rome (easiest and cheapest by a painless train journey -- we'll show you how) and Florence. Or why not explore some of the nearby beautiful lakes, which often have beaches and are great for swimming or whiling away a long lunch at a lakeside trattoria? The best ones include Lago di Bolsena and Lago di Trasimeno (which also has a picturesque island reachable by ferry), scene of the historic battle between the Romans and Hannibal's Carthaginian army when the waters of the lake turned red with blood.

“A perfect Umbrian Holiday”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2014

I stayed in the Terrace apartment at this beautiful property in Sam Mamiliano with my husband and two 18 year old teenage daughters, We had a wonderful holiday. The first week was spent de-stressing beside the large swimming pool, watching the swallows swoop across the water - a flower - lined breezy haven surrounded by the amazing Umbrian mountains. At lunchtime we ate in the shade of the vines on the little private terrace at the back of the cantina. In the evening (when we weren't sampling some of the excellent local restaurants) we enjoyed Aperol sundowners above the pool before making the best of the BBQ outside the apartment. Mario Pinto is a great source of local information on the best places to eat and buy food. By week 2 , we felt ready for some adventure. Mario's wife, Clare, is a keen horse rider ( like me and the girls) so directed us to the excellent local stables La Somma. We went on a couple of breath-taking treks. We loved the nearest town Spoleto with its busy little square surrounded by bars where my daughters enjoyed hanging out over coffees and beer. We also visited Perugia - my husband and I loved the museum and galleries, the girls loved the Italian clothes shops! I would thoroughly recommend a stay with Clare and Mario in San Mam. We will certainly be going back

“An Umbrian idyll”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2014

This was the perfect holiday. We could laze by the pool with the glorious Umbrian mountains as a backdrop while popping back to our apartment for a drink or some lunch. San Mamiliano is central for exploring Spoleto, Perugia and Assissi, and we over-nighted in Sienna. Clare and Mario were friendly and helpful hosts. We will definitely be returning
