HISTORIC VILLA PIANCIANI COMPLEX, EXCEPTIONAL FOR LARGE REUNIONS

Spoleto Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Villa with 13 bedrooms, 14.5 baths ( + possible extra Cottage )

EXCEPTIONAL Historic Villa Complex designed by renowned architect Valadier in the late 1700's on a hill dominating the Umbrian countryside with a 360° view from Assisi to Spoleto. Please ask about our LAST MINUTE DISCOUNTS!

VILLA PIANCIANI is one of the most prestigious residences in Umbria. After years of careful restoration it has reopened to the public, offering the neoclassical elegance of a Listed property with the best of contemporary comfort.

A large monumental park surrounds the Complex which includes the Villa (main building) and the Annex (a three-storey house connected via an underground passage to the main Villa with studio spaces) with a beautiful sun-drenched swimming pool surrounded by organically farmed olive groves. The Villa can house 18/21 guests, or up to 24/29 guests with the Annex. Within the estate it is possible to include the stone cottage as well, housing 8/10 guests with separate swimming pool. The entire Complex can thus accommodate up to 38 guests.

PRICES LISTED IN THIS SITE ARE INTENDED ONLY FOR MAIN VILLA OCCUPANCY (max. 21 guests). PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR ADDITIONAL SPACES.

The Complex is composed of the main Villa and the 'Old Kitchens' Annex; the two neighboring buildings are internally connected by an underground passage. Within the Villa are many spacious living areas (billiard, music, TV & Wi-Fi lounges), fully-equipped kitchen, large courtyard and dining areas and a breathtaking terrace. Elevator wheelchair access. The Main Villa has 10 bedrooms (all heated and most with air conditioning), with spectacular views and en-suite private bathrooms. The Annex has three bedrooms, each with private bath, kitchen, living area and veranda, as well as studios on the ground floor.

Within the park is also a private Chapel, which stands at the back of the main Villa, the beautiful esplanade of the front exedras and, on the south side, a neoclassical ‘secret garden' with architectural elements such as a fountain, a small temple, and a meridian. On the west edge of the hill, facing Spoleto, surrounded by olive groves, is located the large sun-drenched swimming pool (14 x7 metres with dressing room and bathroom) with spectacular views of the countryside.

At the heart of Umbria's green heart of Italy, Villa Pianciani is located in the small village of Terraja about 400m above sea level, on top of a hill overlooking the valley.

The Valley, which stretches for about 320 sq. km. from Spoleto to Perugia is bounded by the slopes of the Umbrian pre-Appenine hills and by many magnificent small towns such as Assisi, Trevi, Montefalco, and Spello. Famous for verdant nature and Art &Music Festivals, excellent olive oil and Sagrantino wine. Many nearby sites to visit and great restaurants.

The valley is predominantly agricultural, far from industrial areas, and has magically kept intact the traditional landscape with clean air and water.

Surrounding mountains give way to the olive trees and Mediterranean forests of holm oaks.

Spring and autumn are ideal for holidays and nature trips. Daytime temperature is around 20°C. In summer, daylight hours are fairly warm (25-30°), but the nights are cool and breezy, so you may need a sweater in the evening. In winter in the daytime it is often cold, around 10°; occasionally, it snows.

It is possible to rent the entire Villa Complex or part of it; the main Villa only or the Villa +Annex or additionally the Diamond Cottage. Adjacent to the Villa's South gate, the DIAMOND COTTAGE stands among olive groves on 10 hectares of terraced land with fruit trees and hardwoods. The Cottage is an old farmhouse built of natural stone that has been carefully restored. Guests can enjoy their own 10x5m swimming pool on a sun-drenched terrace facing the cottage, from where, as well as from the Cottage itself, the view towards Spoleto is magnificent. Wifi now available at Diamond Cottage as well as at the Villa.

From October through May it is possible to rent individual bedrooms on the Villa’s main floor (with spectacular views) or the cozy apartment with veranda in the Annex or the amazing suite for a romantic holiday; it is always possible to rent the Diamond Cottage separately on a weekly basis.

Individual room reservations are possible on a last-minute basis, depending on availability.

Included in rental costs: Welcome assistance/ house steward available at the Villa every day (except Sunday) from 8AM to Noon, pool cleaning service and gardener 4 hours a day, 50 kw/day electricity and 30m3/day gas, linen and towels with one change of linen and towels and room cleaning every 3 days, basic hygiene kits (bathrooms and kitchen), all Villa facilities (pool, free Wi-Fi connection, TV & Billiard rooms). The swimming pool is open from May to September.

Not included: food, beverages, final cleaning fee of 85 euro, extra services and utilities surcharges.

Given the size of the Complex, we highly recommend our optional services to allow you to more fully enjoy your Italian vacation as a beautifully relaxing experience! Our skilled Italian cooks can prepare great home-made dishes of typical Italian or International cuisine for you. DIFFERENT SERVICE PACKAGES are available for your unique personalized holidays, just ask for our price list when reserving.

PAYMENT: 30% deposit to confirm services. Payment with credit card is charged an extra 3%.

We are pleased to arrange any kind of party or celebration, lunch or dinner service for you--even wood-fired oven pizza on request. Event fees vary base on usage and services.

We are also pleased to offer: Cooking Lessons, Art Workshops, Tour Guides, Wildlife Guides, Winery Tours, Olive Oil, Truffle or Wine Tastings. Pick up from and to airport. We are 1½ to 2 hours to both Rome and Florence.

Guestbook comments from the manager
What a truly wonderful weekend we all had - it was completely perfect! Thank you so much for such amazing hospitality and all the extra things you did to make it even more special - showing us round your chapel was fabulous. The food was quite superb and I was very sorry to miss saying goodbye and an enormous thank you to Rita (please also thank the rest of the staff who were excellent - as was your lovely daughter on Saturday night). Also please pass on my thanks to her mother for the doll she made and gave me - that was very touching and it's really lovely. Thank you too for the book of your beautiful artworks - another wonderful momento of the weekend and I'm really enjoying looking at it (and delighted to find the text in English too!).

You have restored the house so beautifully - the perfect combination of modern bathrooms whilst retaining completely the character and charm of the house. I really can't thank you enough for the most idyllic weekend to celebrate my birthday. I will look at your website shortly and send you some tips to make it rank higher in google - you deserve great success with it. We were very privileged to be your first house party - and we'll all do what we can to make sure it is the first of many!

Enormous thanks again for everything - it couldn't have been better and exceeded all my expectations.

very best wishes
