SPECTACULAR UMBRIAN VILLA IN NATURAL RESERVE - COMPLETE TRANQUILITY

Umbertide Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Just Renovated 5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Massive Private Pool, Gorgeous Views

Casale Napoletano is a 5 bedroom farmhouse located in a natural reserve area in the Umbrian foothills of the Italian countryside. Situated in the province of Perugia, the villa is very close to Tuscany and you can reach cities such as Florence, Cortona, San Gimignano, Chianti, Montepulciano as well as all of the splendid hill towns of Umbria including Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Deruta, Gubbio, Montefalco, Orvieto, local wineries, monasteries, etc...

The property has an exceptionally large private pool and 15m long (50 feet) pergola which overlooks the rolling countryside. Perfect for long sunny days or a dip with cocktails after a day of touring the surroundings.

A small country road winds its way up from the valley to San Benedetto where an even smaller, private, ½ km (about ¼ mile) lane leads to this wonderful retreat where life is slow and uncomplicated. Surrounded by olive trees, Casale Napoletano has been transformed in 2013 into an immaculate and beautiful property. The house offers complete privacy, nestled in the surrounding beauty of Umbria with no other residences in sight. It is likely that the closest you will get to stress is choosing which terrace on which to sip a glass of local wine while sampling locally made cheeses, meat, olive oils and tartuffi (truffles) with fresh, crusty bread. While Casale Napoletano’s situation is exceptionally private, it is only a 5 minute drive to the town of Umbertide which has several supermarkets, restaurants, trattorias, cafes, a small Old Town and a market every Wednesday.

The home has been completely and beautifully renovated from top to bottom in 2013 using only local materials and traditional Umbrian craftsmanship. It has all new appliances, including dishwasher an American style refrigerator, italian-made oven with 5 gas burners, new bathrooms including a deep free-standing Philippe Starck bathtub, custom made glass showers, large hot water heater, new plumbing, windows and screens, brand new mattresses, pillows and linens. You are assured of a comfortable stay. Perfect for families and friends! The outdoor brick oven is great for making pizzas and meats.

If interested, the owner can help arrange cooks, cooking lessons in English or Italian, wine tasting at the house, delicious prepared local meals delivered to you upon arrival or during your stay, or just about anything else you may want.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Michael,

Hi, we want to thank you again for a wonderful stay in Umbertide. We really enjoyed your home and it was perfect for the group we were with. We really appreciate all the tips and coordination you gave us to help make our week very special and we really felt like we had a vacation.



As you know we dined twice with Franco and Anna, we would like to ask you to send them a note or when you speak to them next to let them know that we loved the experience they gave us. They are very special people that warmed our hearts and made our vacation memorable. You have really been lucky to meet such special people that take your guests in with such open arms and warmth.



The pizza experience was great, we really appreciated them showing us how to make the pizzas.



On behalf of my friends, thank you and I hope the review I put on is visible now to you.



Best wishes to you and your family and kisses to Franco and Anna from all of us!

Michael and team, we had the most wonderful experience in Umbertide. Your home is beautiful, the view, the pool, the warmth you have created in your home. We really enjoyed our stay. The experience of dining with Franco and Anna was wonderful, what special people we met. The catering service was top and of course the weather was perfect. We do plan to come back and stay. Thank you again for all the advise, tips and coordination you made our summer vacation with friends very special. We will never forget it. We also loved the stone grill, through Franco we are now experts on how to make a real italian pizza. The view, location and home everything was wonderful. thank you so much for opening your home for us to experience a real Italian vacation. Loved it and hope to be back sooner than later.

Amazing Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
Our group (4 adults and 4 kids) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fabulous Italian villa. We arrived to find the house spotless with a nice welcome basket of food products. The house is very well done with impressive fixtures and upgrades. There was more than adequate space for our party and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the outdoor spaces available for eating/lounging. The pool area is fantastic and the kids enjoyed it daily. The amenities in the house are above and beyond – extra bedding in every room, a well-stocked kitchen of pots, pans and dishes. We enjoyed going into neighbouring towns during the day and then cooking dinner at the house in the evenings while enjoying the magnificent views. We have stayed in quite a few hotels and houses during our travels, but this far and beyond exceeded every expectation and experience we have had before. We definitely hope to be back soon.

Family and Friends Italian Excursion

  • 5 of 5
First off, the photographs do not do justice to the beauty and serenity of both the landscape and the property. The home is thoughtfully renovated with modern amenities, but in keeping with Italian country home sensibilities. The lay out is such that privacy can be found, even when there are seven adults and three children roaming the grounds. I cannot stress enough the enjoyment we got from the forno (outdoor oven), this was our gateway to traditional Italian cooking and truly an experience that should not be passed up. On hot days it was especially nice to have such a well appointed pool, and the grounds keeper kept excellent care of the poolside. The evenings out on one of the many verandas were particularly resplendent with the views, fire flies and great local wines. Our family and friends stayed over the month of June and day tripped to many local towns, wineries, oil producers, restaurants, etc.. We day-tripped to Assisi, Gubbio (not to be missed), Cortona, Lake Trasimino, Pisa, Spello, virtually a new place every day. But most importantly the owners and caretakers exceeded expectations when it came to taking care of us! The enthusiasm they show for their home and Italy makes the residence even more enjoyable. They were more than easy to reach, eager to give advice, and very patient. Our only concern was when we will find the opportunity to return (hopefully 2016)! We recommend this property for groups who want a perfect blend of tourist indulgence and immersion into Italian living.

Amazing house in a beautiful green area of Umbria

  • 5 of 5
We can't over emphasize what an amazing time we had at Casale Napoletano.
The photos don't do justice to the beauty of the house. In person it is ever more stunning.
The owner was extremely gracious and even arranged for additional amenties for me and my wife, while the house was in a very neat condition and everything was perfectly working.
We are looking forward for our next trip to spend more time here

Not all rentals are created equally...

  • 5 of 5
As you can see from the photos the location, setting and the home itself is beautiful, very clean and well appointed. So I will talk more about things that impressed me, and to be honest surprised me. The renovations made to the home bring an old world style farmhouse completely up to date, right down to the soaking tub (this was heaven!), all while preserving the integrity and charm of the home and its surroundings. We have rented elsewhere throughout Europe and generally speaking we have always had to adapt to things like shorter, colder showers, smaller kitchens and sparse blankets and pillows. You need not worry about any of these things at this home. As I mentioned, it has been renovated and the bathrooms are fabulously modern with beautiful showers, tremedous water pressure and blow dryers! The hot water heater in the house is bigger than the one we have in our home in the States. There are plenty of new towels, linens, blankets and pillows. The mattresses are new, clean and comfortable, though firm. And like the rest of the house, the kitchen is more than adequetly stocked with dishware, glasses, utensils, cooking tools, pots, pans and a Nespresso machine (we brought our own capsules, as this may be the only thing that isn't included). The kitchen is one of the main reasons I fell in love with the rental online in the first place... I love to cook and this kitchen had everything I needed, plus it is well equipped with professional grade appliances. However if you are like us you will also take advantage of the outdoor wood burning oven which was another big selling point for us. It was a bit of a production, but worth it! Luckily, the owner is extremely helpful and friendly and left directions for everything we needed from the wood burning oven to sightseeing and getting around. We were in Umbertide for a week and from there we were able to travel to various cities (Rome and Florence) as well as small villages (like Assisi, Spello and Cortona), but each day we looked forward to heading back to the house for a relaxing glass of wine overlooking the hills watching the sunset. If there is one negative, (not really a negative) there is TV and DVD player (and DVDs), but no cable. We have two children and I wondered if this would be a problem, but we didn't miss it at all. Plus, the house has wifi so if you wish you can stream things on your iPad or laptop. We are already planning our next visit here when it is warmer so we can enjoy the beautiful pool!

Spectacular Villa

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Casole Napoletano was outstanding in every way. The house was immaculate, well-furnished, nicely decorated and equipped with many amenities. The house is very spacious and a perfect setting for a large family or group. The view from the deck and patios was beautiful especially for sunrise and sunset. Outdoor dining was a great experience because of the large brick oven and the peaceful setting overlooking the lush green hills. The house is in an ideal location for day trips to Assisi, Sienna, Florence, Perugia and other scenic parts of Umbria. The house owner was extremely helpful and responsive to all of our requests. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.
