About the property

On the border between Tuscany and Umbria we created 3 spacious, very luxuries holiday houses, approximately 85 m2 / 850 ft2 each. The houses are decorated to the highest standards where art takes a prominent place and give the house it personality. Paintings, ceramics and statues make the experience stand out.

As we were never able to find any decent holiday houses ourselves we decided to do it better and create our dream holiday houses. This listing is one of the 3 apartments.

In our houses we provide every type of comfort you look for when you travel. Why accept something less then you have at home? We believe that on a holiday you should have more comfort and luxury than you have at home! Well we can provide that!

The house consists of two floors with the bedroom and living room downstairs, with the more than spacious kitchen with dining area and bathroom with free standing bath upstairs

In our holiday houses you will find: (free of charge) wireless internet throughout the whole house, mosquito nets in every door and window, air-conditioning in the bedroom, a fireplace that also heats the radiators so that the whole house is warm even in winter and TVs in the bedroom and the living room.

The kitchen is very well equipped with all the equipment in use today: oven, microwave, dishwasher, 5 fire cooker. Aspiring chefs will be able to cook to their hearts delight, the ingredients found locally like truffles, porcini and the wine from this and neighbouring regions help make fantastic food.

Although the house is self-containing we can imagine that you don’t like to cook during your holiday and therefore we provide extra services like breakfast, lunch and dinner, served in the comfort of your own hose on request.

The house is built according to the character of the village: simple stone houses as they were in the past but a gem on the inside; of course you have your privacy which includes your own entrance and terrace. The terrace is located in a green and tranquil environment and also the perfect place for a glass of wine at the end of the afternoon.

About I. Dollé

After years of visiting Italy during the holidays and having discussed and fantasized of living in Italy many, many times we decided in 2008 it was time to execute our ideas and move to Italy.

After a number of search trips we found 5 small houses (known as a borgo) which seemed to be perfect for what we had in mind: creating a small hotel or luxury B&B.

We say houses but in reality they were dilapidated ruins that had not been inhabited for over 25 years and lacked any public service (no water, electricity, gas or a connection to the sewer system).

Our first challenge was to transform one of the houses into a modern, livable habitat. That way we could get the experience necessary to manage a building project in Italy, before we started the main project rebuilding 3 houses that were to become our B&B.

I. Dollé purchased this house in 2008

Why I. Dollé chose Monte Santa Maria Tiberina

This area of Italy has many, many B&Bs, but none of them furnished modern and with all luxury for two persons. We know as we could not find them in the years of traveling through Italy.

An amazing place for a fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

The four of us stayed in two of these beautiful apartments for four days at the end May 2016. The apartments are converted from old farm buildings finished to the highest quality, beautifully furnished and superbly equipped. There are wonderful views of the beautiful hilly surroundings in which we enjoyed long walks every day with the most amazing wildflowers we have ever seen. A brand new swimming pool has just been added.

Better still, Ilonka and Rob are really friendly and helpful and, better yet, Ilonka is a great cook providing huge breakfasts every day and excellent evening meals on two occasions. This is definitely a place for a wonderful holiday in quiet and very scenic countryside, which is also convenient for visiting the many attractions within easy reach by car.

Thanks to Rob and Ilonka for hosting our great holiday. We only wish we could have stayed much longer in sunny Umbria.

Thanks again, Liz and Mike, Cathy and Eddie
