Villa Carolina is an independent cottage or villetta built in 2002 near the village of Gaglietolle in Umbria. The villa is situated on a gently sloping hillside with views of the surrounding woodland and valley below. It is built in a traditional style with terracotta floors and beamed ceilings but has all the modern facilities required.
As you enter the house there is a boot room/utility room which houses the washing machine and leads on to the living room.
The comfortable living room has two sofas and a dining table which seats up to 6 people. There is a TV with Sky TV and a DVD player along with a number of DVDs for your entertainment. A CD player and a selection of DVDs complete the in house entertainment,
There are 2 bedrooms, one with king size bed and an en-suite wet room and the other with two single beds that can be made up as a double. This room also has an additional single bed which is available for a small additional fee.
The good sized family bathroom is between the bedrooms. This was completely refitted in early 2017 with modern white and chrome sanitary ware. The room retains the charm of the beams and terracotta ceilings and is tiled and painted in soft shades of grey. The large (160cm by 90cm) shower has a choice of shower heads and is large enough to accommodate a stool for the safety of the very young and guests mobility issues. There is a sink with vanity unit, providing storage for your toiletries, along with a toilet and bidet.
There is a fully equipped, modern kitchen adjacent to the living room was created over the winter of 2016/2017 by enclosing the original entrance portico. It is fitted with modern gloss white units and stainless steel appliances. This room has two large windows flooding it with light and with views to the woodlands to the south and, from the sink you also have views to the west over the valley below.
There are double French windows leading from the living room onto the covered south facing terrace which overlooks the pool and the views of the fields and woodlands behind the house. The terrace is furnished with a large ceramic table, seating 6 and an outdoor sofa and chairs, providing a lovely outdoor room.
The villa has a nice, secluded garden on three levels, including plum, cherry, fig, apricot and apple trees and a vegetable patch, which provide fresh fruit and vegetables in season.
The virtually chlorine free private 5 x 10m infinity pool and covered terrace offer a cool respite from the hot summer days.
The villa is close to the border with Tuscany making a number of the major cultural centres of both Umbria and Tuscany such as Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Sienna, Cortona and many more easily accessible.
Festivals are held in the area throughout the year, and Spoleto's Festival Dei Due Mondi in June & Perugia's Umbria Jazz in early July both provide a special experience.
