About the property

Villa to rent with private pool 70 km from Rome: 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 6-8p

This beautiful villa newly and complitely restored with private pool offers an ideal solution for people who want to visit the beautiful cities of central Ital (Rome, Florence, Perugia, Assisi) and at the same time rest and relax in the countryside. The casale (Italian typical farmhouse) is located 2 km from the Umbrian hilltop village of Otricoli, less that 1 hour drive from Rome, 1.30 from Florence. It was built on the ruins of a Roman villa in the XIX century by Umbrian farmers and all the area around is dotted of roman ruins. The villa has a small private swimming pool all for you, the old 'fontanile' of the farmers adapted to the new situation, (where the animals used to drink) a soccer and volley court and a ping pong table will help to relax and enjoy holidays. .

The living room has a large working fire-place, the dining room beautiful windows facing the valley, and the 3 bedrooms are all charming and cosy and each has its own bathroom. The view from all the windows is flabbergasting. Terracotta on the floor, wooden roof, elegant and country style fabrics and old furniture. The guardian leaves 1 Km from the villa and takes care of the garden and the swimming pool, his wife cleans it before and after your arrival and could help you during your stay too with a little amount.

About Alexandra

I started this vacation apartment rental business few years ago just for fun. Now, ten years later, I manage several properties, the majority of which are nearby the heart of Rome. My flats for rent are, with no exception, in pristine conditions. I visit all of them on a regular basis, to ensure my guests will receive the highest level of hospitality and the attention to every single detail. I am proud to say that I always strive to personally answer to all the emails I receive from future and past customers and take every question or request very seriously. I look forward to seeing you here in Rome, the Eternal City.

Alexandra purchased this villa in 2012

Beautiful home in a spectacular setting!

  • 5 of 5

Alessandra's home is even more beautiful in person than in the photos! The comfort and beauty was in every detail of the home and gardens, and the beautifully sited pool was a wonderful gathering spot in the mid- day August heat. The town of Otricoli was just delightful.

The biggest surprise was to see the Roman era walls on which this renovated home was erected, and to walk a few yards to a historical Roman era archeological site,Ocriculum, which we visited several times, almost undisturbed by other visitors.

Magnifique maison

  • 5 of 5

La maison est magnifique. Les extérieurs sur différents niveaux sont un enchantement. Nous sommes restés 2 semaines et avons largement profité de la région. Rome à 45 minutes en voiture est un vrai plus. Le village est agréable, le restaurant Delizie et le bar/gélatéria sont incontournables. Petit budget et accueil adorable.

Nous remercions Alessandra pour son accueil, sa confiance et son bon goût.

Otricoli, bella scoperta!

  • 5 of 5

Otricoli e l'Umbria sono state una bellissima scoperta. Posti meravigliosi, gente accogliente, buon cibo e ottimo vino.

La casa è di grande fascino: è costruita su un antico muro romano e la vicinissima zona archeologica di Ocriculum è stata la meta delle nostre passeggiate serali.

Un unico appunto: in tutte le stanze l'arredamento è bianco e rosso non amo il rosso! Ma mio marito era entusiasta!

La vraie Dolce Vita !

  • 5 of 5

Merci vraiment Alessandra, pour ces 15 jours que nous avons passé dans votre magnifique maison !

Ce ne fut que pur bonheur !

La maison est magnifique, divinement décorée et équipée (manque peut être un four micro-ondes), la vue de la piscine est splendide.

De plus, Otricoli est très bien situé pour visiter les villages d'Ombrie ( Perouze, Assise, Orvieto, Spolète etc .... ) et évidement Rome !

Otricoli propose des commerces idéales avec d'excellents produits régionaux (pâtes, charcuterie, viandes, glaces excellentes au petit café du coin avec super vue sur la campagne etc...)

Bref, nous avons passé, petits et grands, des vacances de rêve !

Un grand merci et j'espère à très bientôt car la maison rouge va terriblement nous manquer !

Maison de charme en Ombrie - Italie

  • 5 of 5

Le charme à l’état pur ! La maison rouge nous a enchantée. Les nombreuses fenêtres avec chaque fois une très belle vue apportent une luminosité et une ambiance chaleureuse. Les chambres sont une décorées de couleurs douces mais colorées et sont reposantes. Une salle de bain dans chaque chambre, tout est étudié de façon a ce que chacun aie son propre espace, c'est parfait et en plus l’ensemble est très cosy! La cuisine est gaie et est très fonctionnelle! Vraiment une très jolie maison de charme! Tout était agréablement et calme, piscine impeccable, pour le bonheur de tous. Un grand merci a la propriétaire qui est très sympathique, disponible et pleins de bons conseils pour rendre notre séjour le plus agréable et pour découvrir la région. Toutes les personnes du village Otricoli que nous avons rencontrés (gelletaria, restaurant...) on été adorables avec nous. Vraiment une adresse à recommander!" Vivement notre prochain séjour!

Séjour au calme au milieu d'un site archéologique

  • 5 of 5

La villa est conforme au descriptif, au calme. Literie de très bonne qualité. Climatisation et moustiquaires très utiles en juillet. Beau jardin et entretien régulier de la piscine. Ménage et changement du linge de maison réguliers. La propriétaire est très avenante, polyglotte et très réactive en cas de problème technique. Un excellent souvenir !
