About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.0 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Located in a protected area near Guardea, villa Poilio is a charming country house in a unique landscape. The four-bedroom property south of Orvieto was built as a traditional 18th-century casale, and today, its rustic architecture has been fully restored. Spend your stay exploring the five-acre grounds or visiting the regions notable towns.

The villas peaceful setting features views of Lake Alviano, olive and cherry trees and a vegetable and herb garden. Take in the panorama of the countryside from the pool, lounge chairs on the pool deck, one of the outdoor sitting areas or the al-fresco dining area. For entertainment, theres a ping-pong table, satellite TV and Internet access via Wi-Fi; for convenience, theres a gas grill, laundry facilities and photovoltaic system on the roof.

Poilio is just as welcoming on the inside as it is charming on the outside. The recent restoration preserved its original terracotta floors, beamed ceilings, stone walls, and local Travertino stone window frames, and most furnishings are traditional-style antiques, including the doors. In the open living and dining area, a modern sectional curves around a fireplace, and a wooden table can seat a crowd. The eat-in kitchen has its own farmhouse-style table, as well as an old-fashioned fireplace for cooking alongside modern appliances.

Each of the villas four bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, plus rustic details like beamed ceilings and leaded windows. There are two bedrooms with double beds; one has a jetted tub and sauna system, and the other has a jetted tub, sitting area with sofa bed and separate entrance. There are also two bedrooms with two twin beds each.

Quiet and relaxing with great views.

  • 4 of 5

Contact and communication with/from Luxury Retreats before and during the stay was great.

The house was secluded and it was just what we were looking for.

Difficulty communicating with the maid. She continued to talk on and this could probably have led to misunderstandings.

Garden attendant came early on check out day which is less positive. It excludes a last dip in the pool and stay in the garden. He should come after 10 am when The check- out must be made.

Cleaning staff should arrive at 10 am check out day, unless otherwise agreed. It got a little stressful when they appeared earlier.

Lovely location and lovely villa.

  • 5 of 5

Simply loved Poilio. The villawas beautifully decorated and very well equiped. The views and pool were just spectacular! The villa was very clean and a cleaning service can to fresh up the place which was very nice. There were two fans which helped with the heat of the summer. Poilio was just idyllic!
