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
I choose this property for the quiet, the charme of the house and the beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.
! We loved everything about this villa. After visiting the wonderful nearby historic sites, we would jump in the beautiful infinity pool. Odilla, the owner, was helpful and caring.
We enjoyed the introductory dinner, and midweek Tuscan dinner, organized by Jacopo.
We would love to return someday

This year we stayed the second time in the villa. The house is fantastically located in the hills between Citta della Pieve and Fabro. We are a large group with 3 Generations. Like last year, it was a perfect holiday again. In the large villa, we had all the space. Odilla and her family were perfect hosts again and had everything prepared for our large group. The wonderful pool was a great pleasure for all, especially for the children. We enjoyed sit together, to eat or to grill. The view on the great terrace is wonderful.
It was perfect again and we hope to return in the next years.

Abbiamo trascorso a Villa Pulciana alcuni giorni (troppo pochi) di meraviglioso relax: Natura incontaminata, paesaggio stupendo e rilassante che abbiamo potuto ammirare, non solo dalla piscina invitante, ma anche dalla meravigliosa loggia, da dove a pranzo e a cena potevamo ammirare un panorama mozzafiato. Non dimenticheremo le serate trascorse a chiaccherare sotto le stelle cullati dal canto dei grilli. Stiamo già pensando quando ritornare....
Consigliamo vivamente un soggiorno a Villa Pulciana.
Grazie, Sig.ra Odilla per averci ospitati e "coccolati".
Un abbraccio Gino, Antonella, Maria, Antonio, Lidia, Gabriele
The villa is absolutely stunning - it is situated in a gorgeous and peaceful place, breathtaking views, with the most amazing pool, and a fantastic wood oven that had made our Italy vacation a very authentic Italian experience. The rooms are comfortable, and most have their own bathrooms - so it's very easy if you share it with other families. We were four families with kids and had great time. You should bear in mind it is somewhat far from the closest village (about half an hour drive) - which can be a benefit or a bit of a hassle - depending on your state of mind. We loved it. The only thing that was less than perfect was the kitchen (or actually the kitchens - as there were three) which were small for this kind of property and could have been better equipped (though I am yet to encounter better equipped kitchens in rental villas - it seems to be a common problem).
When we pulled into the driveway at villa pulciana it took my breath away , I couldn't believe this was going to be my home for a week!!
The grounds are stunning and the pool was amazing!! The villa was very clean and so inviting ! Plenty of room and space. Everything about this Villa was top notch !! Odilla (the owner) was kind and helpful and went above And beyond to make our stay enjoyable. She booked a wine tour for us , got to know our children's names , was always smiling and happy and obviously loves the Villa and it shows !!
We will most definitely return 😊
We were fortunate to select from many available Italian holiday villas the beautiful Villa Pulciana near the delightful hilltop town of Citta Della Pieve on the Tuscany/Umbrian border. The villa itself, its facilities, infinity pool, beautiful grounds and panoramic surroundings were truly stunning. The owner and hostess, Odilla, is a lovely Italian lady, very helpful in arranging a lovely Italian evening meal for 18 of us on the night we arrived and then a visit to the Fontesecca vineyard, a local organic vineyard owned and run by Paolo Bolla and his lovely wife - super wine tasting afternoon had by all!!
Our whole extended family of 18 people ranging from age 9 to 69 were looked after and accommodated easily in the 3 floor villa with plenty of room for all and we could all eat together on the first floor open air patio enjoying good Italian food and fine wines with a staggering view.
The apartments and bedrooms/bathrooms were finished and decorated to a very high standard and were also very clean and well equipped. Each of our our families in the group had their own space if needed but could all get together easily.
We had a fabulous week and wished we could have stayed longer. the Villa makes an excellent base for sightseeing such places as Rome, Assissi, Pisa, Florence etc,etc,.
We would like to thank Odilla for all the effort she obviously puts in to make sure everybody who stays has a memorable holiday - we certainly did, will definitely be back some time in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody thinking of staying in this part of a beautiful country.
VILLA PULCIANA IN CITTA DELLA PIEVE IS AN AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO STAY. IT IS PERFECT FOR A LARGE FAMILY, OR SMALL FAMILY, SINCE THE VILLA IS SETUP AS THREE SEPARATE APARTMENTS FOR SLEEPING WITH KITCHEN FACILITIES, AS WELL AS A COMMON KITCHEN AND VERYLARGE TERRACE FOR FAMILY MEALS. IT OVERLOOKS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPES OF SUNFLOWER FARMS , VINEYARDS, AND MOUNTAINS.
IT SERENITY HEALS THE SOUL.
THE OWNER, ODILLA IS A SAINT. SHE IS THERE FOR YOUR EVERY NEED AS WELL AS A GRACIOUSNESS BEYOND EXPECTATION.
I RECOMMEND THIS VILLA TO ALL WHO WANT TO EXPERIENCE THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN UMBRIA.
