About the villa

More ‘village’ than ‘villa’, Borgo Bastia Creti is a secluded little hamlet, whose intriguing old dwellings crown a hill, naturally screened in greenery. Restored in contemporary country style, the individual cottages and courtyard houses s are linked by brick paved paths and patios, and surrounded by extensive grounds with floral banks and fabulous views. They range in size from a romantic retreat for two, La Limonaia a private cottage situated at the very edge of the Borgo for enjoying seclusion and stunning views, to Gli Olivi for up to four, a spacious and light property on two floors with lovely views. The privately positioned Cottage with superb views and a patio surrounded by a lawned area, and courtyard I Cipressi with lovely views across the estate, each comfortably accommodate six guests. The largest villa, Ginestre, providing unusually airy accommodation on three floors, linked by a curving tower staircase, is spacious enough for eight.

All are furnished with elegant simplicity, with country kitchens and contemporary bathrooms, naïve benches and comfy sofas, open fireplaces and outdoor dining options. And all enjoy the service of friendly resident staff, and share the use of a large swimming pool, a tennis court, and Club Bastia, a  beautifully converted chapel with lounging and dining areas, where local dishes feature for (optional) evening meals. Borgo Bastia Creti is just 15km from amenities in Umbertide. The property has recently undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment.

About the area

Umbria & Tuscany Border

Average weather

A monastic calm hangs over the hills that straddle Tuscany and Umbria. But holidays along the Umbria–Tuscany border offer more than just quiet relaxation by the villa pool. Perugia is kept young by the city’s thousands of students, and houses one of central Italy’s great art collections. Lake Trasimeno has clear waters and scenery when you need a hit of azure or a day-long cycle ride. Gubbio and Città di Castello barely break their small-town rhythm to welcome visitors.
