This three bedroom villa, perched on the very top of Monte Santa Croce, is an example of flawless restoration on an exceptional site. Perhaps Santa Croce’s real name should be “the-villa-on-top-of-the-world” thanks to an extraordinary location with 360° views over the Murlo Estate and Umbria. One of the most impressive villas on the Estate, Santa Croce impresses with its fine interior design and large infinity pool that seems to float above the valley of Murlo. Guest can swim in the private sublime pool, walk across the nature reserve, relax and enjoy the views from the stunning cocktail terrace or play a round of golf in the 18 hole Robert Trent Jones Jr designed golf course of Antognolla (5min of the villa with a golf cart through a private path) or drink a glass of 'prosecco' at the golf clubhouse bar.
Tenuta di Murlo - Exclusive Estate with five luxury villas, three charming apartments and two romantic cottages all elegantly furnished and offering superior levels of comfort.
Our stay at Villa San Savino: perfect and spectacular.
Jay L. Bethesda, Maryland USA. The villa is set like a gem in a ring of green mountains, within an easy drive of man of the most beautiful cities and hill towns in Italy, including Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, and Todi. It’s commodious, with a well appointed kitchen and numerous modern bathrooms. We particularly enjoyed our bedroom, which had once been the nave of a deserted village church. There are also terraces for outdoor dining, barbecue gear and a swimming pool. The 360 degree views are superb and, of course, to get to the driveway, you pass a castle that looks as though Richard the Lionhearted rode out yesterday.Finally, there are the people. The landlady, Carlotta, greeted us personally, showed us around the property and provided her home and mobile phone numbers so that she could be instantly available. She was also kind enough to arrange for a visit to the castle that guards the driveway. Perfect place for a perfect holiday.
