About the villa

The largest of five properties which make-up the Borgo Bastia Creti estate, Le Ginestre is a spacious and beautiful building whose three floors are linked by a helical staircase in the rounded tower. Positioned to provide privacy and serene views, the house has its own tiled terrace, furnished for al fresco dining and hemmed by tree-shaded lawns. Its very spacious interiors are a haven of comfort and character, from the country-style kitchen diner with its old stone fireplace, to the airy white-walled sitting room and enchanting bedrooms. Beamed ceilings and flagged floors in polished terracotta form the frame for marble bathrooms, antique furniture, colourful fabrics and hand-woven rugs. And, ideally flexible for families, each of the four bedrooms can be made-up as double or twin beds. Communal facilities within the expansive grounds include a large swimming pool encircled by lawns, a tennis court, and the convivial Club Bastia, a converted chapel now housing a sitting room and informal dining hall. Within easy reach of Umbrian and Tuscan medieval towns, the villa is 15km from Umbertide.

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.
