Why Maria chose Umbria

Very pretty and exceptionally large property set in lovely gated and very private grounds with splendid views of the unspoiled umbrian countryside, yet within very easy access to small and very traditional town with all amenities and just a short drive away from all the main tourist attractions.

You will love this property since it combines PRIVACY within large grounds, it is very SAFE also for young children as the property is GATED and there is another separate gate to the pool area, and at the same time the villa is within easy access to the small town of Trestina, you can walk it, and within easy access to some of the most spectacular sites of the region.

What makes this villa unique

Great and very private property with gates and hence very secure. Large garden with many mature plants and which has been very well looked after. Fantastic swimming pool with decking and a lot of space around it. There is a good tennis court which is usually a hit with everybody. The Swimming pool has its own little gate so very safe also for young children. The property is set within stunning scenery with lovely views, yet is within easy access to a small town (5 minute drive or 15 minute walk) and all it's amenities as well as bars and restaurants. Furthermore, this part of Umbria is truly wonderful and still very traditional and should you be able to tear yourselves away from the pool there are many wonderful places to visit just around the corner. Also there are many great and very reasonably priced restaurants in the area offering very good local cuisine.

The perfect place from which to discover this wonderful part of Italy.

The small town of Trestina (walking distance from Villa) is situated between Citta di Castello and Umbertide both approx. 15 minutes drive away.

Trestina is situated in an agricultural area which used to live of predominantly tobacco farming. The area is very pretty and still very traditional with beautiful country side and very close to a plethora of wonderful places to visit. The river Tiber runs through the town of Trestina and Citta di Castello is a very pretty medieval city with some lovely sites and churches, a great piazza, lots of festivals during the summer months and a very good market twice a week. Citta di Castello also houses the Burri collection (a modern art collection by the artist Burri who was born in Citta' di Castello).

The area is called the Upper Tiber Valley and is very beautiful and still very unspoiled. Being right on the Umbrian / Tuscan border you are able to easily visit both of these areas. With Arezzo close by, Perugia to the south, Lake Trasimeno 30 minutes away, Montone (said to be one of the most beautiful hilltop villages in Italy close by), Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino 30 minutes drive away.

The Upper Tiber Valley is a stunning part of Italy with many wonderful places to visit, great food to be had, a fantastic climate and all at reasonable prices.

The fact that the property is at a walking distance from the small town of Trestina is great for those of you who would like to perhaps go out in the evenings and have a glass of wine or two without having to worry about driving, There are several nice bars in town as well as a couple of restaurants as well as all the normal amenities such as supermarkets, shops, banks, postoffice and the train station with trains running between Perugia and Sansepolcro in Tuscany. A great place from which to explore both of these areas.

Spacious house in quiet setting but dated and poorly maintained

  • 2 of 5

This house is huge with more than enough space for all 11 of us. The pool is a good size and lots of outdoor sitting/eating space which we enjoyed.

However the house is very dated in decor and facilities and has not been maintained well (broken lights, oven that doesn't fully heat up, sticking shower taps, leaky basin plugs, broken wall sockets etc.).

For some groups the multiple floors and billiards room might work well but for a large family group with kids we found it difficult to all sit down and relax together in the space.

In august it was very hot and mosquitoes were very troublesome. Also many eating places here and in cotta di Castello closed for 1 or more weeks.

We loved all ice and trattoria lea in courts di castello and there is a very handy shop at the bottom of the hill from the villa.

Overall we have had much more comfortable stays in other villas for similar prices in recent years.

Nice pool and hillside setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely villa that could do with a little money spending on updating appliances etc . It just seems a bit unloved inside. Loose bathroom fitting,leaking washing machine and dishwasher not working properly. Great swimming pool and setting and terrace. It has a tennis court but no rackets which have been useful to know in advance. Also it would be helpful if there was an information sheet as to where shops are and when they are open. We had a good time there but it could be amazing if a bit of money was spent on it.

Terrific place lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The house was huge and spacious enough to allow our group privacy with great together areas such as the large veranda where we ate every meal. The kitchen and utility room are large enough for a large group to cook together which is something that we really enjoyed.

The bedrooms were cool in temperature and almost all of them had private terraces or balconies which was great. Even better was the fact that each bedroom had a private bathroom so there was no queuing and arguments over teenage mess. The pool area was lovely and also it was good that it was gated so secure for the real youngsters.

The location was excellent for Citta do castellol Assisi, Perugia and also a day trip to Rome by train for just 20 euros. Try that in London......

Trestina itself was very nice with a number of bars and restaurants that were great value especially the ice creams. The hike back to the villa was a bit steep but good exercise and we drove sometimes even though it is not far.

great place and good value for money. I would recommend it.

Great villa in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

A smashing villa in a good location walking distance to small town which some of the younger members really liked. Plenty.of room in fact the property is enormous and well appointed, if a little basic. Great, clean pool & fun facilities (pool table, tennis court). 13 adults & a two year old had a wonderful time. There is a steep drive to the villa but it's not a problem- we all drove it easily & it's a proper road used by other villas in the area. A little bit of info on local amenities would have been useful

Small moans though, it's great! And part of the property is also an enclosure where the owner keeps a small variety of deer which our little one thought was great. Very much enjoyed our stay.

Spot on - good holiday for the price

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as advertising stated (we have been to places where photos looked good but missed out the autostrada 200m the other way!), the linen, towels and bedding was clean and good with weekend replacement, villa was kept clean (did not have to clean the floors when we arrived) and everybody had a good time. The pool was kept top quality and was private, loads of space for our family and friends, and we had good TV and games inside. The owners were only 15 minutes drive away so if we needed anything then a call was all that was needed. Internet wifi was available only 10 minutes walk away.

Great thing was that we were two families sharing and it was a great holiday for a low shared price. Not brand new internal fittings but that was fine.

The area was lovely and quiet, lots of lovely towns within 30 minutes drive and we loved Perugia. Would recommend this to anybody who wants a quiet, rural Umbrian holiday where you can go out and eat good local food and wines for under 15 euros a head. Try that in London!

Had a great time - great location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July 2012 and had two excellent weeks at this lovely villa. It is only 3 minutes drive from the town of Trestina (bars, restaurants, supermarket, station etc) but is completely isolated in the countryside with sweeping views of the valley towards Morra. The villa is very large and suited us with several generations staying as there were several lounges/play areas and great space for the kids to play. Having a private football pitch seemed ridiculous but was fabulous for all kinds of games. Good pool too. Enjoy!
