About the villa
With a pool house encompassing a kitchenette, the villa’s fifth bedroom, and a terrace for al fresco lunches, and with long lawns for lounging in the sun, the views from the exceptional swimming pool area are a timeless panorama of olive groves and rolling countryside. The main house is higher on the hillside, enjoying the same splendid outlook from a delightful covered dining terrace and from its three first floor bedrooms. And, separated just enough for added privacy, a studio suite houses the fourth en suite bedroom and its own sitting room. Named for the magnificent sun dial in the property, La Meridiana is a spacious and special place, featured in House & Garden and furnished throughout with beautiful fabrics, prints and paintings, and carefully chosen objets d’art. Relaxation comes naturally here, enhanced by inclusive cook service; and for active leisure, the villa has table tennis and shares a tennis court with a sister property. Restaurants at the pretty lakeside village of Colle di Tora are just a 13km drive from the villa, and Rome is just an hour (and a world) away.
'We loved the spaciousness of the villa, ensuite roomy bathrooms, comfortable beds, fly screen, fabulous pool. Very much a home from home. Plenty of helpful information. We loved the décor and of course the fabulous sundial. Usually we enjoy cooking for ourselves and eating out, so it made a nice change especially with the excellent food provided. Overall a very relaxing, restorative holiday.'

In the south, an Umbria holiday comes dotted with honey-coloured stone farmsteads and sprinkled with olive groves—this region is not called ‘Italy’s green heart’ for nothing. The towns are a must-see for cathedral connoisseurs: there’s nothing restrained about the façade at Orvieto, yet one simple rose window is all that breaks up the classy simplicity at Todi. All of southern Umbria’s villas are within day-trip distance of Rome, too: the station at Orvieto has a fast link with the capital.
