About Alessandro Palieri

I am a retired banker from Rome. I have lived in Italy all my life apart from a short period spent in England. Privately I am still working with an interior designer who is the co-owner of the property.

Alessandro Palieri purchased this villa in 1991

Why Alessandro Palieri chose Avigliano Umbro

We bought the property as a ruin and restored it over 12 years. We are very proud of what we have achieved. We wanted to live in the Green Heart of Italy, with easy access to the most important artistic and cultural cities of central Italy, whilst having the benefits of a rural retreat.

What makes this villa unique

We furnished the property with a carefully chosen mixture of modern and antique furniture and art to ensure that we and our guests enjoy the house and have maximum comfort in every room.

Discounts are available for smaller parties. Please contact the owner for details.

Stunning and magical!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we could see the villa from the road until we left, the experience was nothing short of magical. It's a truly unique and beautiful property. The hosts, Alessandro and Jean-Pierre, are fantastic and so very helpful. They know the area well and made great recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We rented ebikes, which were a wonderful way to see the area. But it is lovely to walk and drive as well. The pool area is spectacular. The grounds gorgeous. And the villa, well it is extraordinary. We fell in love with the area and hope to come back! We highly recommend.

Truly impressive and spacious country villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful villa. Spacious and beautifully furnished. The owners were on hand and were helpful at all points for everything that we needed. The villa has been built on a grand scale on top of its own hill with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and majestic steps down to the swimming pool area which is well appointed with its own kitchen, changing area, WC and outdoor shower. This allowed us to spend much of the day soaking up the Umbrian sunshine and have real peace and relaxation. We would definitely recommend.

Villa at Bandite - hosted by Alessandro Palieri

  • 5 of 5

The villa and the whole experience was incredible. Beginning with the views over the Umbrian hills and the gracious and very informative welcome by the hosts including a guided tour of house and pool area everything was as perfect as it can get. The bedrooms are all extremely well appointed and the common areas, especially the very large country kitchen, dramatic. The pool area was perfect for swimming, dining or just lying about. Frankly, it was so calm and peaceful that all the plans to go touring were aborted. The hosts were constantly responsive to any and all requests.

I would heartily recommend a vacation here to anyone and hope to return myself.
