LUXURIOUS HISTORIC VILLA NEAR MEDIEVAL UMBRIAN VILLAGE. PRIVATE POOL.

Lugnano in Teverina Villa Rental Photos and Description

Five full bedrooms, four full bathrooms. Sleeps 12. Baby cot and child bed.

Villa dei Cipressi is a stunningly renovated (completed Jan. 2010), 500 sqm. historical country 'palazzo', once owned by the noble Vannicelli family of Florence. It is perfect for those seeking a luxurious holiday experience in an exclusive, historical setting. The Villa, fully decorated with antique furniture, boasts chestnut beams and doors, hand-painted ceramic tiling, terracotta floors and large old fireplaces. The Villa offers all modern amenities, including air conditioning, a controlled access system, professional kitchen appliances and WiFi internet access. Groups of up to 12 persons (max. 10 adults + 2 children) can rent the entire Villa (Option 1), including the garden. Smaller groups (max. 4 adults + 2 children) can rent the lower two floors only, with access to the billiard room, garden and swimming pool (Option 2). Villa dei Cipressi has a private 3000 sqm. garden, featuring a 13 x 5.5 m swimming pool, a volleybal court and a bowling green. Al fresco dining area, BBQ.

The Garden: The Villa has a private 3000 sqm./32,000 sq ft. fully fenced garden with mature cypresses, pine trees, holm oaks, olive and fruit trees and an avenue of lime trees near the entrance gate. The garden, fully reserved for the exclusive use of our guests, features an “al fresco” dining area equipped with a stone barbeque, table and chairs, and a kitchen garden providing herbs, salad and seasonal fruits. Guests can also enjoy our new bowling green and volleyball / badminton court. An iron gate opens to a swimming pool (13x5.5 m / 43x18 ft) for private use, situated only a few meters away from the house. The terrace around the pool offers a magnificent view of the hilltop village of Lugnano and is fully fenced to ensure your privacy and security. It accommodates a solar-heated shower, a changing room with a small fridge, a table, umbrellas and luxury sunbeds and deckchairs and is surrounded by oleanders, lemon trees and pomegranates.

On-site parking, bikes and mountain bikes available.

Lugnano / Umbria: Medieval Lugnano in Teverina, listed as one of the most beautiful hilltop villages or 'borghi' in Italy, boasts many beautiful churches and convents and fine, noble buildings or 'Palazzi'. The jewel of Lugnano is with any doubt the Collegiata di S. Maria Assunta, one of the most beautiful examples of Romanesque art in Central Italy and dating back to the XII century. Palazzo del Pennone, the palace of the medieval 'podestà' or village ruler, and the ancient convents of St. Francis (XIII century) and of the Capucines (XVI) boast beautiful architecture and precious fresco paintings. A trip to Umbria would not be complete without enjoying its cuisine. Excellent food and wine are just as much a part of the region's charm as its forests, frescoes, and castles. Lugnano is listed among the 'Città dell'Olio' or the villages of olive oil. Extra-virgin oil is the most typical product of Lugnano and can be purchased at the town's oil mills.

Further Details: The Italian and English-speaking owners of the Villa live on the adjacent property; they are available for any practical questions or emergencies. Guests may also contact the agent for any assistance (in English, French, Dutch, German, Spanish or Italian).

Tennis courts, restaurants, food stores and supermarkets, a cash point, a newspaper stand and a pharmacy are all within walking distance from the Villa.

Upon arrival, our guests will find a generous welcome-pack provided by the owners themselves (including home-made pizza, quiche or another warm dish, cheeses, salad, fruits and wine), so there is no need to rush out to the supermarket or restaurant after a possibly tiring trip! Other practical items, including washing-up soap, toilet paper, kitchen paper, cleaning products etc. are also provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We have stayed in many villas over the last decade throughout Italy and France and can honestly say we have never stayed in a more comfortable or well equipped property (the tow kitchens has everything you could ever need and more!). The photos on the website do not do justice to property – there are beautiful details everywhere throughout the house and stunning antique furniture and architectural features as well as much larger ground than we expected where the children roamed freely and safely. The pool are is superb and we spent many afternoons there not wanting to go anywhere else. The fresh salad vegetables dropped off by the gardener 3 times in the week were delicious and the amount and quality of the “welcome pack” items was beyond anything we have experienced.

The garden was lovely and safe and our children wandered happily around playing petanque and badminton and exploring generally. We discovered a wonderful local bar at the bottom of the road (just passed Spar) with the best gelati in the area and an American football table which become a daily visit. The unassuming restaurant which is a 2 minute walk behind the house had the most delicious fresh natural pizza we have had anywhere in Italy as well as great pasta (particularly the carbonara!) and we returned there with our group of 11 (4 adults 7 children!) for 4 meals (lunch and dinner) during the week. AND we are still all talking about the quality of the meat purchased at the local butcher (where we met people coming from Rome to buy the meat!) which we grilled on the open fire/bbq area. Amazing local supermarket at the foot of the hill as you drive into Amelia from Lugnano and we enjoyed the fruit and mascarpone tarts from the small bakery just off the small central piazza in Lugnano. We enjoyed many long meals as families sitting in this gorgeous veranda area looking out at the local hill top town through the arches. When we could tear ourselves away we enjoyed a wander around Amelia, a morning in Orvieto and a long lunch in Todi. We intend to return for a longer stay next time and thank you and the owners again for making this property such a special one to visit.

FANTASTIC HOME IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Villa dei Cipresi is everything thing you are looking for and more. We were a group of nine adults. The house was large enough for everyone to have their own space but also spend time together. With two kitchens, multiple outdoor eating areas and a fantastic dining room, we shared many meals together, prepared with vegetables and herbs from the well tended garden. The kitchens were well stocked with professional cookware and utensils, coffee makers, and a wide range of staples, including olive oil, spices and coffee.
We cooked in the big kitchen and on several occasions cooked outside at the barbecue area which had a great outdoor dining table.

We spent our mornings site seeing in nearby towns like Orvieto, Amelia and Todi. Two in our group were avid bikers and spent every day attacking a new hill town. The rest of us were happy to visit those same towns by car. The hot afternoons were spent lounging by the beautiful pool. After leisurely dinners, we walked into the little town of Lugnano in Teverina on the hill to enjoy the nightly activities during the Feast of the Assumption festival. The town had a very nice bakery, and the local people were very friendly. There are also two grocery stores within a five minute walk from the house, which made last minute shopping or a quick run for more wine very convenient.

We debated extensively about whether to rent in the countryside or near town, and we discovered that the convenience of being in town cannot be understated. Still once you stepped inside the gate of the property and were surrounded by the beautiful gardens and tress, it felt quiet and peaceful as if you were in the country. Villa dei Cipresi really provided the best of both options.

The owners of the house have spent much time and effort to restore it, and it is beautiful while still very comfortable. They live next door and provided a delicious welcome dinner our first night. They were available quickly when needed but did not impose in any way. The property was cared for by a gardener who came in the very early mornings before any of us were awake.

Villa dei Cipresi exceded all of our expectations and we could not have been happier with our choice. We highly recommend it and look forward to the day that we might return.

Car: recommended

Umbria, the 'green heart' of Italy, will surprise visitors with its unique blend of nature, history, culture and cuisine. The area, unspoilt by mass tourism, offers a wide range of possibilities for holiday makers. Medieval Lugnano in Teverina, 200 m from our Villa, is listed as one of the most beautiful hilltop villages or 'borghi' in Italy and boasts many beautiful churches and convents and fine, noble buildings or 'Palazzi'. A beautiful, authentically medieval hill town itself, Lugnano is the perfect base for seeing central Italy's historical and cultural delights. Rome is just a 1 h. trainride away, while Orvieto, Viterbo, Lago Bolsena, Bomarzo, Amelia, and Narni are but a few of the wonderful places that can be reached in 30 min. or less. Todi and Spoleto are within 45 min.; Perugia, Siena, Assisi, Gubbio, the vineyards of Chianti and the Tuscan seaside take about 1 h. Those interested in Roman or Etruscan history should visit the ruins of Otriculum, Carsulae, Tuscania or Volci.

Other Activities: Cultural / historical sight seeing
