Just Renovated 5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Massive Private Pool, Gorgeous Views
Casale Napoletano is a 5 bedroom farmhouse located in a natural reserve area in the Umbrian foothills of the Italian countryside. Situated in the province of Perugia, the villa is very close to Tuscany and you can reach cities such as Florence, Cortona, San Gimignano, Chianti, Montepulciano as well as all of the splendid hill towns of Umbria including Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Deruta, Gubbio, Montefalco, Orvieto, local wineries, monasteries, etc...
The property has an exceptionally large private pool and 15m long (50 feet) pergola which overlooks the rolling countryside. Perfect for long sunny days or a dip with cocktails after a day of touring the surroundings.
A small country road winds its way up from the valley to San Benedetto where an even smaller, private, ½ km (about ¼ mile) lane leads to this wonderful retreat where life is slow and uncomplicated. Surrounded by olive trees, Casale Napoletano has been transformed in 2013 into an immaculate and beautiful property. The house offers complete privacy, nestled in the surrounding beauty of Umbria with no other residences in sight. It is likely that the closest you will get to stress is choosing which terrace on which to sip a glass of local wine while sampling locally made cheeses, meat, olive oils and tartuffi (truffles) with fresh, crusty bread. While Casale Napoletano’s situation is exceptionally private, it is only a 5 minute drive to the town of Umbertide which has several supermarkets, restaurants, trattorias, cafes, a small Old Town and a market every Wednesday.
The home has been completely and beautifully renovated from top to bottom in 2013 using only local materials and traditional Umbrian craftsmanship. It has all new appliances, including dishwasher an American style refrigerator, italian-made oven with 5 gas burners, new bathrooms including a deep free-standing Philippe Starck bathtub, custom made glass showers, large hot water heater, new plumbing, windows and screens, brand new mattresses, pillows and linens. You are assured of a comfortable stay. Perfect for families and friends! The outdoor brick oven is great for making pizzas and meats.
If interested, the owner can help arrange cooks, cooking lessons in English or Italian, wine tasting at the house, delicious prepared local meals delivered to you upon arrival or during your stay, or just about anything else you may want.

Incredibly responsive owner and a beautiful villa.
Luxury, privacy, tranquility -- and gourmet meals!
Casale Napoletano provided a well deserved and much needed break from the harried pace of city life. We found the Villa to be spectacular and absolutely charming. The home is well apportioned with all the latest features that one would expect in a modern 21st century home in a major metropolitan city in the US, but it's located in a completely renovated and tastefully decorated Italian farmhouse in the Umbrian hills. We were two families with two children each (ages 10-9-8-7), along with an older couple for a total of 10 people. We never felt crowded, and enjoyed dining in the kitchen, as well as al fresco on the patio. The swimming pool overlooking the valley and mountains is breathtaking.
We HIGHLY recommend contracting some of the catering options offered by Mike. A "cena rustica" catered by Franco and Anna at their Casata was spectacular --- a bountiful harvest of delicious antipasto, freshly made crostini, hand made potato-truffle gnocchi, grilled sausage, chicken, steak, and lamb chops -- left us wanting for nothing. A Pizza Night - again catered by Franco and Anna at the Casata -- was the best pizza (16 different ones!) we've ever tasted in our lives. (Note to self: Need to include the outdoor brick pizza oven in the patio renovation plans!). Another delicious meal to have catered in by Franca and Sabrina - homemade tagliatelle with wild boar sauce, various crostini & bruschetta, and homemade tiramisu -- all was to die for.
While the house is outfitted with air conditioning, we found no need to use it -- located on the mountainside, simply keeping the windows open at night, and then closing sun-facing shutters in the daytime kept the house cool and extremely comfortable. Situated roughly two hours north of Rome, and two hours south of Florence, we found the location to be ideal for conducting day trips to some of the cities and towns we had only read about or seen in the movies. Assisi, Perugia, Montone, Siena -- were all locations that were anywhere from 10 minutes to 90 minutes away -- plenty close to conduct day trips. After so many day trips, there came a time where we just wanted to spend time at the pool and relax at the house -- and Casale Napoletano was IDEAL for that!

It was absolutely amazing, the pictures don't come close to the actual space. Nobody could want anything more, the house was truly beautiful and so easy to live in, the pool was crystal clear and inviting, the amenities were more than any one could expect, and I can't wait to come back.
Heaven in Umbria
My husband and I stayed for a week and a half. Loved the quiet solitude. Enjoyed this spectacular property emensely. Views are spectacular. This property is beautiful and renovated extremely tastefully. Loved the kitchen. Thank you Michael! Troy and Laura.
An incredible and unforgetable experience in Casa Napoletano.
An incredible and unforgetable experience in Casa Napoletano. That are the words that describe our holiday the best. Located on top of the hill, we have had the most beautiful afternoon snapshots. Words and pictures can't capture the wonder of this villa. We where there for 5 weeks, had different family members visit us. Everybody had the same "ahhhhh's" and wowwww's". Most important is the communication with the owner Michael: fluent speaking english and Italian, with very quick response in case of a question. Very polite and helpfull. We where there with young children (youngest was 3). Before the holiday we where a bit afraid for the swimming pool, wich is laying lower but we put a chair in font of the stairway downstairs, so that was no problem. The house is very clean and the kitchen has everthing a cook needs. Thank you Michael for this great escape! Cheers
A Stunning Home
Casale Napoletano is just fantastic!!!!! This is an absolutely gorgeous house, beautifully designed and extremely well-appointed. The spaces, both inside and out, are quite spectacular, and the terraces and pool area are truly stunning. We loved it and will return again and again.
The listing was very accurate. The photos are great and, if anything, they do not do the property the justice it deserves.
The owner is amazing and was helpful beyond belief. We cannot say enough about him. He made our experience a truly excellent one.
An absolute find....so share it only with your very best friends!!!!!
Rome or Florence are the most popular points of entry in Italy for visitors to Umbria, however there are a number of other possibilities including Bologna, Pisa, Ancona, Milan and Assisi/Perugia's own local airport- PEG, from which it is a mere half hour drive to reach Casale Napoletano. Casale Napoletano is the perfect local base from which to explore the region as it is a 5 minute drive to the E45 motorway which gets you to the breathtaking hill towns of Umbria and Tuscany, Florence, Pisa and Rome. A 10 minute drive brings you to the beautiful village of Montone, ranked as 'one of the most beautiful villages in Italy' and is home to the Umbrian Film Festival. Within a short drive you can find yourself in magnificent villages and historic cities rich in both culture and landscape including Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, and the world renowned village of Deruta known globally for its stunning hand painted pottery…or at Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in Italy. A 45-90 minute drive brings you to the majority of Tuscan hill towns including Siena, Cortona, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Chianti, Tuscan Wineries and olive oil producing Umbrian Monasteries. Several hill towns are encircled by Etruscan walls with streets lined with medieval and renaissance palazzi. Endowed with historical monuments and art, the endless beauty of the region speaks for itself. Approximately two hours driving brings you to Florence, Pisa or Rome.
