SPECTACULAR VILLA WITH POOL OVERLOOKING TIBER VALLEY

Penna in Teverina Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10-12

Perfectly located in a hillside olive grove, apparently in splendid isolation with breathtaking views of hills, the town of Orte, and the Tiber Valley, Casale alle Morre is in fact attached to a charming and lively little village and is in easy reach of Rome, Florence, Orvieto, the Etruscan cities of Viterbo and Tarquinia, and all the Umbrian hilltowns. A gentle path leads up to the magnificent “lap” pool in natural stone and sand-colored tiles behind the house, protected by a natural forest, dotted with olive trees, with an even greater view of the valley and the tile-roofed back of the house and its lemon-house annex. The villa was constructed completely new in 2006 from the very stones of a ruined farmhouse on the property, so that it is full of light and air and modern space, but looks as though it has always been there. Its magnificent southern-facing portico dominating the valley is protected from the sun all summer and warmed by it in the cooler months.

The village of Penna: 5-10 minutes' walk up a shady lane is the flourishing village of Penna (population 1000), equipped with post office, bank, parish church, pharmacy, and shops in a thriving community of local people of all generations active in the agricultural and civic life of their village. The calendar year is studded with festivals, such as the open air banquet to celebrate the vendemmia (or grape harvest) in mid-October, outdoor music and dancing for the village holiday in early August, streets strewn with flowers for the Corpus Domini in June. Penna’s tiny historical center, in the shape of a feather (hence its name) is anchored between the very active parish church and the belvedere (panoramic overlook on the Tiber river valley and Mount Cimino beyond). The town also boasts an impressive mechanical Presepe (Nativity Scene) open to visits all year round.

An Umbrian family story: The villa is on a working farm (olives and grapes), that has been in our family for almost two centuries. The historic family home is close by, in the village.

The adjacent 'limonaia' houses potted lemon trees in the winter, ping-pong in the summer. The apartment above the limonaia is not for rent and is occasionally occupied by the owners.

This is the authentic Italy, far from its mass tourism and yet in easy range of so many of its legendary beauties.

Great stay in Umbria, a wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in Umbria, and this home was a perfect spot for our family. The house is finished beautifully down to the detailed ironwork and hand crafted wooden doors. The villa was spacious with all the modern amenities and the home was spotless, with everything for our stay waiting. Conveniently located an hour from Rome and close to many hill towns made this ideal for us to do daily road-trips. This was a perfect place to enjoy amazing panoramic views while eating dinner outside on the patio, or swimming in the pool perched upon the hillside surrounded by olive trees. The lovely village of Penne where the villa is located has markets, a bakery, a pub and is walking distance. As a runner I found this a perfect spot to start out from and go exploring the countryside, looping through hills with spectacular views every turn. My family had a wonderful experience and would recommend staying here to anyone interested in the beauty of the Italian countryside.

The old and the new

  • 5 of 5
This house is such a cleverly and lovingly made thing -- the pieces of an old farmhouse resurrected from the land that Paulo and Alison know well, on which olives and lemons and roses grow, and on which guests can now spend beautiful weeks suspended between the water of the hillside pool and the blue sky. An evening on the terrace eating cheese from the buffalo farm next door and drinking wine made from grapes on the property is not to be beaten. And the wider setting, which make Rome close but not overwhelmingly so, and is dotted with ancient sites (we saw Etruscan tombs and Roman cisterns on short day trips) lovely fortified hilltop towns is perfect. We are so grateful to have stayed here!

modern amenities with an old world feel....

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to Umbria after having stayed in Tuscany 3 years ago. This villa provides a spectacular view in a recently built villa with modern amenities such as a washer and dishwasher and screens on the windows which are rare in most Italian villas. We spent time enjoying the pool and the 500 year old olive trees on the grounds of the original farmhouse, as well as venturing into the charming town of Penne.
This villa is comfortable , quiet and picturesque, and is driving distance from Perrugia, Deruta, the Mediterranean, and a train ride to Rome. The kitchen is well stocked, with upscale appliances and the ping pong table provided entertainment for everyone old and young.
I would highly recommend this lovely villa to anyone who will find it far above standard compared to most villas. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here and plan to visit again.

Review of Vacation Rental 913642

  • 5 of 5
This place was such a wonderful place to stay! The villa was clean and spacious. The pool was lovely and we all swam every day. The villa had a terrific kitchen where we could all cook together. The screens on the windows were invaluable, and the view was spectacular. I would definitely recommend this beautiful home to anyone and everyone. I'm just trying to figure out when I can go back.

Kiwis in Penna - Magic Location

  • 5 of 5
The villa was absolutely perfect, we loved the view out to Orte (we think that’s what the town was) and wanted to pack it up and take it with us. The pool area was wonderful as well, and the children loved the fire flies at night time. The town of Penna was also very special, it was a wonderful village that had no tourists, apart from us of course. But the village was very well placed and had many choices for day trips. If you are after an small authentic Italian village Penna has it all. Maura was great and so was her cooking and her friend Mario? was invaluable as translator. We were just disappointed that we didn’t stay longer. The villa was very clean and all of the rooms were spacious.

On the border with Lazio, the villa stands at the gateway of all the Umbrian hilltowns (Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Narni, Gubbio), but also an easy distance from the volcanic Etruscan towns of Viterbo and Tarquinia and the Tuscan seaside (Capalbio, Ansedonia, the island of Giglio). It is also close to the Appenines and river rafting on the Nera near the waterfalls of Marmore, some of the highest in Europe. Because of the vicinity of the Orte train station (15 minutes' away by car) Rome and Florence are easy daytrips -- without the worry of a car.
