The Villa Solferino sits perched on a south east facing hill in an incredibly panoramic position overlooking the glorious Umbrian countryside. The gated villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden and grounds that lead down to four acres of olive groves and vineyard, ensuring privacy. The new 50ft swimming pool is nestled on a terrace amongst olive trees in a truly amazing setting.
The house sleeps 10, comprising of 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living rooms ,drawing room, dinning room, kitchen, laundry room and downstairs WC. There is a very large arched portico area leading from the kitchen with a barbecue which is ideal for eating alfresco in the shade from the heat of the day or on a warm evening. There are two open fireplaces , a wood burning stove and gas central heating.
The house is cleaned with a change of bed linen and
bath towels once a week . We can organise a local chef for an evening of your choice who will cook and serve a fantastic
Umbrian /Tuscan meal.
The local town of Citta di Castello has a weekly market and there is a antiques market in the historic centre once a month.
This area is famous for truffles and mushrooms where there are numerous restaurants in the surrounding hills
all serving an excellent selection of the most delicious Umbrian cuisine. Remember that the menu changes with the season in Italy especially in the countryside, so there is always a good surprise!
There is a truffle festival in the autumn when people arrive from all over Italy to taste this delicacy.
