WiFi, free of charge.

The private pool is exclusively yours.

The villa is only ever rented out as a whole house - when you are here, it is ALL yours, for as far as the eye can see !

Posto Del Sole:Country House, set in many miles of private and world famous countryside, can be seen across the valleys and from mountain tops because it sits on a hillock of an "island" wood, a piece of woodland, where the land falls away on either side, deep, down into the valleys, olive groves and vineyards.

A restored 16C Umbrian cottage, it has been carefully restored so that light penetrates every corner of the house and shards of sunlight pierce the shadows in every room.

With 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 sitting/dining rooms, 1 of which can be easily converted into a 6th bedroom.

An exclusive pool is at the front of the house, fenced for child-safety, which is 16 x 6 kms and 1.5 mts deep.

An exclusive pool is at the front of the house, fenced for child-safety, which is 16 x 6 kms and 1.5 mts deep.

Perfect for light lap swimming and casual diving in the slightly deeper end. All the land on the mountain is private and owned by our friend, who is also our partner and the owner of Posto Del Sole.

However, local people live on their farmsteads on the mountain so you may see the occasional farmer.

In the nearby field, we keep the logging mules, sheep and cows. We also have some goats and peacocks. Nonetheless, the land is so vast and the animals are not limited to small patches of it that they can keep hidden if they are feeling reclusive ! And, Posto Del Sole is fenced to keep out the animals !

The gym referred to is State of the Art. It is called “Unique”, it is 1.5 miles and it accepts day memberships. Here there are weight rooms, many classes, a large pool and a huge sauna.

Sports, Tennis, Horse riding, Fishing, Shopping, 75 restaurants in surrounding area.

Bikes can be hired locally or online - please ask for details.

Chef at home, cooking lessons, maid service, chauffeur to take you somewhere locally or anywhere in Italy, all available - please ask for details.

We offer every activity you can imagine from truffle trails, eating in the woods, picnics with a donkey, chef at home, wine tasting, olive oil tasting......all followed by meals with unlimited wine .....and, our local taxi-driver/chauffeur can take you re any of these excursions or to anywhere you want to go in Italy - he also does airport runs.

Location description from manager

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 !

Valico Dei Pellegrini

Staying at Posto Del Sole, you will feel you are on top of the world. You are beginning to be in the mountains, low enough to be below the snow line but high enough to feel the dizzy heights. All around are scattered country restaurants, one of our favourites being Due Querce, set in lovely gardens, with an extensive menu and which does the best pizza in the world.

If you like walking and/or mountain biking and/or fishing and/or bird watching, this is the perfect location for you.

Your local town is Spoleto.

Spoleto 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 Spoleto 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.

“Excellent place for lazy holidays”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2011

it's been an undoubted pleasure to spend our holidays in Posto Del Sole-Country House in Umbria. This is exactly what city guys need to rest a little. In the middle of Italy and in the middle of nowhere. Great hospitality, wonderful and extremely helpful owners.
