If you wish to see photos of the Lodge, please ask. Just 10 mins drive from the mediaeval centre of Spoleto, this fabulous villa, set in its own private 44 hectares of gorgeous countryside, is stunning !

The famous Carlo Minotti, he of 'the Festival of Two Worlds' fame, spent his holidays here, along with a host of other celebrities throughout the years, all hosted by the owners of this beautiful property.Now, the owners have moved away and this grand house is available as a luxury holiday rental. This means that you, too, can follow in the footsteps of Andy Warhole, Brigit Bardot, Peter Sellers, Pavarotti and the many other friends that Minotti had visit, while he was here.

This large, spacious, comfortable VILLA (without the Lodge) is perfect for reunions of family and/or old friends.A property with vast amounts of space, where everyone can be private when they want, but, with an enormous sitting/dining room, where everyone can congregate together. Indeed, it can seat up to 20 persons easily !

This grand house has a separate kitchen/breakfast room with a dish washer, just off the enormous dining area and next to the outside patio, overlooking the pool. Besides the large lap pool, there is a pergola with seating for 4 - 6 persons and......a fantastic sound system. And, for those of you who like discos, you can have the sound system turned up to full volume since all the land, as far as the eye can see and further, belongs to you, during your stay at Vallocchia Villa. 10 mins drive to central Spoleto. Situated in 42 hectares of the most beautful, Umbrian countryside, in the commune of Spoleto.

Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Unlike Tuscany, where Chianti has been dubbed, Chianti-shire, referring to the invasion of the Brits from the British home counties over the past 50 years, Umbria has remained “unpolluted” by tourism. Indeed, you can drive along stunningly beautiful country roads, over mountains and through valleys, and never see another car ! Naturally, this keeps the prices down since the many restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias, all competing with each other, depend on local trade the year round for their income.A trip to Umbria is a trip back in time. Mediaeval mists stretch across endless landscapes. A land of traditions and rich culture. A magnificently, unspoiled area of rolling, forested hills, sprawling grassy meadows covered with flowers, olive groves, vineyards, lakes and valleys. Dotted with picturesque medieval villages, perched on hill-tops, Umbria is famous for its cuisine………….truffle, boar, porcini mushrooms, fine wines from Orvieto and Montefalco and the friendliness and hospitality of its people. Still, the most important topic of conversation is food. Everything stops for lunch, the most important meal of the day for young and old !The “hot-spots” of Umbria eg Perugia, Orvieto, Montefalco, Todi, Spello, Norcia, Casteluccio, Trevi, Gubbio, with Spoleto at their cultural centre, have festivals throughout the year, celebrating truffle, chocolate, various pastas, asparagus and boar – all in a context of song, dance, choral music and orchestra. The Spoleto festival is also known as the Festival of Two Worlds. But, the Spoleto area is the most interesting place to stay in Umbria, not only because of its central location. It combines ancient and modern, simplicity and sophistication, town and country, and, the richest of cultural heritages, bound up in the handful of aristocratic families, who have owned and controlled Spoleto, since the turn of the century, with love and respect for their land. Now, the young ones are in power and are keen to open up Spoleto to the rest of the world, to show off their traditional farming methods, their cuisine and just the sheer beauty of the place. To stay anywhere else, you risk missing the ultimate experience, the complex mix of food, fashion, religion, architecture, bars, churches, museums, art galleries, arched, cobbled streets, older than Rome…all to be found in and around this most famous city of all, Spoleto, the city of the rich and famous and, up until now, Italy's best kept secret !

Spoleto

Spoleto, 10 mins drive max from Vallocchia Villa, is close to Assisi, Foligno, Trevi, Bevagna, Perugia, Todi, Orvieto, San Gemini, and Gubbio. It is about 1.5 hours to Lake Bolsena, Lake Trasimeno, Rome, 5 hours to Venice, 4 hours to Naples and 2.5 hours to Pisa, Sienna and Florence.A favourite for Italians, the tiny city of Spoleto looks like a fairy tale book, come alive. Just 0.7 miles from Spoleto By The Pool, you can enter the walls of this tiny, exquisite city, meander in its cobbled, arched streets and feel the spirit of Spoleto's fascinating past immersed in every stone and cobble. A place where fantasy meets reality and anything could happen !Lounge in bars, gelaterie and restaurants or, don your walking kit and set off into the hills, treading in the foot-prints of millions of pilgrims who have trod the trails of St Francis, since the 12C. In 15 minutes, from anywhere in Spoleto, you can be in the mountains, immersed in spectacular scenery. Bright green valleys, hills covered with olive groves, thick woodland, monasteries, castles and tiny villages dotted here and there – magical ! There is a flash tennis club in the centre. And, there is pony trekking in the nearby hills. Other activities include swimming, fishing, cycling, cooking courses, wine-tasting, truffle-trails as well as day trips to Florence and Rome.……………………………………………………………………………………………….Packed with monasteries, churches, art galleries and ancient monuments, Spoleto is a feast for those who hallow the good life. You can pray, eat, sing, dance, hike, fish, taste the finest wines and olive oils, learn to cook like Mama or like a top Italian chef (what's the difference ?)....or, simply meander through the arched and cobbled lanes, lined by crooked stone walls and faded pink, ochre and sienna washed, higgledy piggledy pallazzos, with ornately curved iron balconies, a deep blue sky punctuating every gap between the silhouetted shapes.....and, marvel at this God given place, a tiny city that predates Rome, where the indigenous inhabitants regard themselves as the ONLY true Italians, apart from the Venetians and the Florentines. Come here and you see Italy in the raw. In the last 20 years, many Italians have settled here, Spoleto having always been a favourite for the Italian. And, thanks to them, Spoleto offers the finest cuisine from every corner of Italy, the locals are the friendliest you will find and the diversity of the Italian populus makes Spoleto a really fun place to stay because all these Italians have brought with them their own local customs and practices from their home towns, whether it be flag waving, ceramics or shoe making. Here, you have it all. But, for me, best of all is the wine, the truffles, the olive oil, the gelato, the cappucino, the pizza. So much of it is my favourite, it is impossible to single out one thing......maybe the cloudless blue skies, the sun and the purply pink tipped mountains.
