LUXURY VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL. TRANQUIL SETTING AND STUNNING VIEWS.

Perugia Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

La Torretta is a luxury villa with a private pool and stunning views, offering peace and tranquility. It is furnished to a high standard, providing comfortable accommodation.

It was an old tobacco-drying tower and adjoining barn that has now been completely rebuilt using local materials and converted to provide extremely comfortable accommodation for up to 4 people, with furnishings to a high standard. The house has stunning views and is set in 14 acres of grounds, surrounded by olive trees. Although it is in a rural position it is not isolated. The nearest village is 2 km distant, whilst the English owners live nearby.

It has 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, (one en-suite with a walk-in shower). There is a fully fitted kitchen, entrance hall, lounge and dining area. There is air-conditioning for the hot summer nights, whilst under floor heating, together with a wood-burning stove ensures that you will be cosy and warm should you decide to visit outside the usual summer holiday season.

Spring is a beautiful time of the year when the roses, jasmine and lavender in the garden, together with all the wild flowers, broom and acacia trees are in blossom. The days are usually warm with pleasant cool evenings.

Summer is long days with a clear blue sky and temperatures around 30 degrees, but cooling down in the evenings making outdoor dining a pleasure.

Autumn has long sunny days and cool evenings.

Winter usually has crisp cold nights and many fine clear days with occasional snowfalls.

If you do not like the hot summer weather, why not come and see the spring flowers or in the autumn sample our new olive oil.

For something different, hire a classic car during your stay or fly in a hot air balloon.

Sun beds and cushions together with sun umbrellas are around the pool. Lilos and games for children are provided.

We are sorry, but this property is not suitable for toddlers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pre-arrival checks and other thoughtful touches made arrival a stress free and delightful experience. We thought, future guests, of listing places to visit, but it is a waste of space and time – just ask Barry & Beaulah! They will come up with a number of suggestions for whatever you want: - remote, busy, hilltop, valley floor, Roman remains or astounding frescoes. Just ask and have a pen and a map handy.

Umbria from 1000 feet up in a hot air balloon in perfect silence should be a must on everyone’s list. The in-flight entertainment is only bettered by the Prosecco breakfast on landing. We have read all the other comments and can only agree with them. Attention to detail is the secret of La Torretta.

We will definitely be back to continue to explore Umbria under the Bower’s superb local knowledge – built though experience!

Thank you for a week that exceeded our expectations and was the perfect first week of a honeymoon starting our married life!

Comments from Owner Guestbook

Many thanks for a very enjoyable break. The ability to fly over Umbria was greatly appreciated.
We came, we saw and Italy conquered us. Hopefully it will not be long before we return.
Please keep us posted on the welfare of the pheasant, boar and porcupine population! Derrick & Sue.

If you want to “chill-out”, this is the place to be. You put a lot of thought and imagination into this project, which makes it so easy to relax and enjoy. Lovely views, spacious green and colourful garden. Lots of nice places to visit in the locality. We really enjoyed ourselves. We wish you all the best for the future. Adrian & Myrtle.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5
We must say the villa exceeded the web description - very pretty, immaculately maintained, comfortable furniture and good views from the terrace where we ate most of our meals.
There was plenty of friendly advice from the owners, and there is internet access in the villa.
Access to popular Umbrian & Tuscan places is good including Gubbio, Assisi, Montefalco, Siena, Montepulciano, Lake Trasimeno and more. We like to go at this time of year when it's cooler and quieter, but if you like more heat the pool area is very pleasant and although we didn't use the pool (could have) we spent some relaxing hours round it.
We flew into Florence, and Rome is a similar distance, but you can also fly into Perugia which is only about a 20 minute drive away.
We have already recommended it to most of our relatives.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We'd been to La Torretta before and loved it so much we came back for more. The setting is magnificent and the pool is fabulous. The owners are attentive and friendly and the property is spotless and nicely furnished and includes a useful separate laundry room. We particularly enjoyed sitting and reading by the pool with views over the Umbrian landscape, listening to the chimes of the local town bell, eating breakfast on the patio, or barbecuing in the early evening. As the sun sets over fields of sunflowers with a glass of wine in your hand you can hardly think of a better place to be.

Escape to an Umbrian Idyll

  • 5 of 5
La Torretta is a charming and romantic cottage tastefully decorated and beautifully located with distant valley views but set comfortably within a glorious and immaculately kept garden overlooking the owner's olive grove.The patio is a wonderful place to admire the view and watch the changing colours of the countryside and the swimming pool is enormous. One can relax at the pool with a book, enjoy the scent of the roses and make use of the outdoor gazebo and BBQ.
After a day's exploring of the Umbrian and Tuscan towns it is wonderful to return to the tranquility and warmth of La Torretta.

The Perfect Honeymoon - June 2011

  • 5 of 5
Having just spent a week at La Torretta we can only say that we agree 100% with all of the other comments we have read about this stunning property. The attention to detail is incredible - in the building itself, in the breathtakingly beautiful gardens and in the way the entire property in run and maintained. The photographs simply do not do it justice.

We had every intention of taking some time to explore Umbria, but in the end only left the property on two days (and even then only for the morning)! It is simply so relaxing and such a wonderful place to be that you won't want to be out and about.

We could write many paragraphs singing the praises the fabulous La Torretta but in reality only one word is required: perfect.

Truly a Beautiful Villa !

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks on this beautiful property, lots of different areas to relax in, very private location with awesome views and sunsets!
The outside is meticulously cared for. A lovely pool with cascading waterfall and gorgeous flowers everywhere.
Great kitchen for cooking in (even barbecues by the pool) , very comfortable beds, extremely clean (high quality linens and towels).
Hosts were very knowledgeable and helpful with areas to visit and especially recommendations for restaurants. We really felt like "we were living in Italy" without the tourism.
We would not hesitate to return... worth every penny!

If an American looking to see the Umbrian countryside in close proximity to many of the old Italian towns..... this is it!

We would be pleased to welcome any inquiry.

Car: recommended

La Torretta offers the perfect base from which to explore the many treasures Italy offers in the surrounding area. From the cobbled streets of the pretty hill towns of Montone and Anghiari, or the battlefield of Tuoro (where Hannibal defeated the Roman Army in 217), to the tomb of St. Francis of Assisi there is a wealth of history to explore and many beautiful sights to visit or paint. For something different, enjoy the water sports on Lake Trasimeno. Within easy reach by car are the towns of Sansepolcro, Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Spoleto, Todi, the waterfalls at Narni, and the towns of Orvieto, Montepulciano, Siena, or Florence.

It is also possible to arrange for wine or olive oil tasting or why not hire a classic car.

Other Activities: Hire a classic car during your stay or fly over the local area in a light aeroplane

Golf: The nearest golf club at Antognolla Golf Club (http://www.antognollagolf.com/), approximately 8 km away. It is set in a private valley and has a clubhouse with an excellent restaurant.

In Perugia (25 km away) there is the Golf Club of Perugia. http://perugiaonline.com/golfclubperugia/.
