About the villa

Transformed with artistry, style and attention to detail by its British owners, this spacious family villa combines traditional form and Italian craftsmanship, with contemporary comfort and 21st century facilities, the old and the new interwoven throughout the house. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, and a wonderfully chunky breakfast island with high rustic stools. The elegant sitting room has big white sofas, richly coloured rugs and cushions, and carefully chosen objets d’art, along with a state-of-the-art multi-media area with Skype phone, WiFi and Sky UK TV. The huge chestnut dining suite was crafted by local artisans, and bright bedrooms blend classic country furniture with uncluttered simplicity. But there’s nothing ‘old world’ about the air-conditioned gym, and the fourteen metre pool, with its hydro-massage area, is far from period. Set amid immaculate lawns and drifts of lavender, the villa has a vine-shaded dining terrace and looks out, over orchards and olive groves, to rolling hills. Shops and restaurants are just 8km away by the lake at Bolsena, or 10km in hilltop Orvieto.

About the area

Near Orvieto, Todi & Northern Lazio

Average weather

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.
