About Girardi Odilla

My name is Odilla. I am very passionate about travel and good food. I am the owner of Villa Pulciana. I have run this country house with enthusiasm since 2009 and over the years I have had a lot of satisfaction from my customers. Since the beginning, this work has become rather like a hobby, it allows me to meet new people with whom I have established good relations. My goal is always for the guests to spend an unforgettable holiday in Italy.

Girardi Odilla purchased this villa in 2003

Why Girardi Odilla chose Perugia area

I choose this property for the quiet, the charme of the house and the beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.

A Real Special Place!

  • 5 of 5

I loved our week in Umbria...Citta della Pieve is an amazing gem and our stay at Villa Puliciana was four stars. The views are spectacular with the most tranquil of pools tucked away between a vineyard and vista of the meadow below. The smell of lavender, rosemary or jasmine was always close by. It was perfect for our extended family and allowed all to come and go. My morning double espresso tasted even better when sitting on the second floor terrace; saw a fox one morning and a hoope another morning. I could have sat there all day and just kept staring at the views. Hopefully a return to Villa is 'in the cards' someday in the future.

If I could improve anything, it would be to make the main kitchen area more user friendly, add a bigger garbage can, toaster, recycle bin for bottles and a more sturdy table next to kitchen. :-)

Awesome Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Odillia was fantastic, she provided a book that had restaurants, stores to shop at, and places to go for kids and adults alike. The house was awesome, with 3 stories each w/ a kitchen, family members could get up when they wanted and not bother the others. Pizza oven, pool, and spectacular grounds/views, this was the perfect house for day trips and/or just hanging around. Odillia set up a special dinner and separate pizza nights for the whole family. Magnificent! Citta Della Pieve, the closest town, is absolutely darling-so Italy! I want to come back to Villa Pulciana every year!

A lovely villa with a wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

With the 2nd level as the main gathering and eating area, the villa works well for up to 14 people. The villa is simply appointed with large bathrooms for 6 couples with 6 bathrooms. A 7th couple will need to share a bathroom, but no big deal.

Pefect stay in a beautifull place

  • 5 of 5

With friend of us, we have rented the house in August 2015.

The house is beautiful and organized in a way that you can have your independence (each level has its own kitchen, living room, rooms & bathroom) which is somehow valuable when you do not have exactly the same rhythm (especially regarding the children’s!)

The location is perfect as well with nobody living close by and with a beautiful view. So you do not need to care about anything else than enjoying in the way you like it.

The swimming pool is great and large enough for the 14 peoples we were.

Last point, Odilla the owner came almost daily, discretely, not in an intrusive manner (which was one of our concern prior to rent the house) to take care of the swimming pool cleanliness.

If you have any issue (which was the case with a friend’s car) she’s taking care of you until the issue is solved but not only, she drove us to a wine producer and gave us additional advices to enjoy our stay.

In conclusion it was a perfect stay to relax and disconnect from you daily life even with numerous people in the house.

I warmly recommend this place.

Everything you want in an Italian villa

  • 5 of 5

Everything you want in an Italian countryside vacation. The house and gardens are beautifully maintained. Views of vineyards and olive groves from the infinity pool really make this a tucked away gem. Beds were comfortable and we are picky about that. For summer visitors you should know the windows have screens allowing you to keep fresh air in and Mosquitos out. We highly recommend.

What an incredible villa! My dream was to rent a villa for 2 weeks with family and friends. The villa was beautiful and perfect for my guests - each floor is it's own apartment so each group had private space while having the flexibility to mingle with others. It's obvious a lot of care and love went into restoring this farm house. It was exactly as described to me. We felt we had everything we needed complete with appliances - microwave, coffee maker, etc. We also scheduled a cooking class and a chef to come in to make dinner 2 nights. The scheduling was seamless for me. The grounds were well kept - and we spent lots of time at the gorgeous pool We found the location to be a perfect blend of being out in the country with relatively close proximity to hilltop towns - most within 1/2 - 1 hour away. We spent lots of time in Citta Della Pieve and visited many others including Orvieta, Chiusi, San Casciano dei Bagni, Fighine, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and more.

And Odilla was very accommodating and friendly. I really couldn't have asked for more - and even better than that, my guests loved the experience!

I recommend this to friends and family - and hope I can return one day!
