Overview

About the property

Country house in Umbria with private swimming pool

Villa Le Ginestre is …..living in close contact with nature, smelling the brooms in their full bloom, knowing that just outside the gate of the Villa you can take a long and pleasant walk up to the nearest village…… Then leave your city-home and spend your holidays in full serenity at Villa Le Ginestre.

Your evenings will be under a starry sky, watching Venus and the countless constellations of Umbrian beautiful sky.

Le Ginestre is a pretty country house surrounded by a forest of oak trees in a beautiful location just outside the small village of Grutti.

The house is built in the ancient Umbrian style: stone exterior, the interior ceilings with chestnut beams and terracotta tiles rough. Terracotta floors and tasteful decor add charm to this small country house, with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large living room with adjoining dining area.

The house is surrounded by an area of over 10000 sqm, part of which is fitted to garden with beautiful ornamental and fruit plants. There are also olive trees that increase appeal of the site.

In this garden, detached, yet only a short walk from the house, is located a pergola with beautiful wood-burning oven for barbecue, a fully equipped solarium connecting to the pool, lighted in the evening for those who love swimming under the amazing starry sky.

All the most famous Umbrian towns are easily reached via the E45.

Swimming pool opening dates: last week of May - last week of September

Changeover day: Saturday

Lovely family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We got a really nice warm welcome. The house is really pretty with lots of garden and a lovely pool with amazing views across the valley with the beautiful town of Todi in the distance. We trekked behind the house, visited local churches and gorgeous nearby towns. I had a coffee every morning in the charming village of Grutti. What a relaxing enjoyable holiday.

A charming rural villa with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa Le Ginestre. The villa was well equipped and very comfortable, and the view was glorious. The pool was super and provided welcome relief from the heat. Everything was well maintained and in good working order. We would happily stay there again. Umbria as a whole was delightful and we stumbled upon a lovely restaurant in Bevagna, the Ristorante delle Mura - the meals we had there were simply delicious. The pasta at Le Noci in Grutti itself is also excellent. For shopping, we found the EMI in Bastardo the most convenient. Umbria has much to recommend it as a holiday destination if peace and quiet is what you need.

Truly wonderful house with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Le Genestre and I know I will be back again. We were met at this outstanding property by Bruno

, Mila their children and Bruno's parents. The children bought me roses and Bruno's mother gave my husband and I a wonderful home made chicken salad and a large basket of fresh fruit, what a welcome and what a truly wonderful start to our 3 week vacation. The house itself is comfortable with a wonderful dining room and a well stocked kitchen. As far as appliances and dishes go, every thing you need is supplied. The house and pool were very well maintained during our stay. We took many day trips to the surrounding Umbrian countryside all of them wonderful, we would highly recommend Assisi, Spoleto, Bevagna, Todi, Montefalco, Deruta and Perugia. Our favorite restaurant was in Montefalco its called L'Alchimista don't miss a visit here the service and the food are outstanding, another great restaurant is ristorante Ferrari in Perugia, ask for an outside table on Corsa Vannucci, its a wonderful street for people watching. Only a few minute drive from Grutti in San Terenziano is a wonderful little restaurant called Ristorante Il Buongustaio the chef- owner is so welcoming, the food is very good and the prices are very reasonable. For all grocery needs its only a short dive to Todi and the well stocked EMI supermarket.

We can't say enough about our visit to Umbria and Le Genestre it was a truly wonderful vacation, we are already talking about our next visit.

Home away from home. Peaceful and breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

Gloria met us at the villa when we arrived very late. She had prepared some food for us and left a bottle of wine which was very thoughtful. Villa is lovely, comfortable and has everything you could need. Real home away from home.

Fabulous pool and outdoor bbq area under a pergola covered by grape vines. Perfect for al fresco dining under the stars. Views are just amazing. Highly recommend this villa if you really need to get away from it all and totally wind down and relax. We didn't do to much sightseeing other than a day out to Todi and Oriveto,as the pool and the villa were just to lovely to leave.

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay, and the house. Everything was perfect. Except at the end when we had to pay extra for the gas. We were never told that the heating would cost extra to the regular fee. This ment a lot of money and a big disappoinment. We really enjoyed the week but left with some bitter taste in the mouth. Sadly enough!

Le Genestre far exceeding our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained, with a view that took our breath away. My sisters and I had a great time in the pool, the pool was clean when we arrived and at the end of the first week was cleaned again, the same for the house, we couldn't have asked for more. Our contact in Grutti was Gloria, she met us when we arrived and was a great help showing us around the house letting us know how everything worked, she even called the next day to make sure we were ok and that everything was working as it should, she was very kind and helpful. We visited quite a few places our favorite was Todi it had a great history and is worth more than one visit, Todi also has a wonderful supermarket. We would also recommend Assisi and Terni, which are wonderful, close to Terni are the water falls of Marmore these should not be missed.

It was a wonderful vacation, we can't wait to return, we would have no problem recommending this property.
