Villa in Gubbio, Umbria, Italy - Quiet Peaceful Location But Within 2 Hours Of Some Of The Worlds Most Famous Historic Sites
About Sam Harris
I am an interior designer and loved the challenge of building and doing the interior design at La Quercia. This is my dream home and I have furnished it from my favourite stores within the UK, USA and Spain . Finally I designed and worked with a friend to have furniture made in Indonesia and shipped over. The result I hope you will agree is a beautiful home which looks authentic and old from the outside, but inside as comfortable in the winter as it is in the summer.
Sam Harris purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Sam Harris chose Gubbio
We bought the plot in early 2009 and took about 1 year to get the various permissions . The property was finally finished in Summer 2010 and we moved in . We had previously had a flat in Marbella which was changing and was not the same place it had been when we first bought it. We fell in love with view, and later discovered that the surrounding towns and slightly further afield cities were every bit as spectacular as the views. The food is also amazing. The opportunity to build and design exactly what we wanted was a further factor. The silence is wonderful and we sleep really well here , although isolated( we share the estate with 7 other owners) we are not remote and have the best balance of country living with a wide range of town experiences within easy reach.
What makes this Villa unique
We are 40 minutes from Perugia airport, 80 minutes from Ancona airport and between 2 and 3 hours from Florence Rome and Bologna . We have incredible views a private swimming pool and a tennis court on the property that is rarely used. We have on the estate 130 acres that you can wander on.

We just had a fantastic week in this beautifully appointed Villa - thank you so much Sam! It is chilly at night in April but glorious sunny days and fantastic walks in the hills above the house, cuckoos calling and spring flowers bursting forth!
The house itself is really comfortable and a real home-away-from-home with all mod-cons and amenities and beautifully decorated. We loved the quiet and slept like babies; came away thoroughly rested.
The views are stunning as are all the medieval towns within easy striking distance. We particularly liked Assisi and Montone.
I cannot recommend this villa enough. Would love to go back!
Excellent as usual!
This was our 3rd stay at the villa and, as we expected, it was fantastic again ! Beautiful house in a beautiful location, perfect - a truly relaxing holiday! The decor is very tasteful and the house is really well equipped. We are keen cooks and there was everything that we could possibly need in the kitchen, even a bread maker!
Lovely to have you back......So happy you enjoyed your stay.
IMPECCABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME NEAR GUBBIO
This is our second visit the first time we have ever returned to a holiday destination which of itself speaks much of La Quercia.
Rustic style with top notch fittings and furniture and a brilliantly equipped modern kitchen provided the luxurious basis for our holiday. Spacious outside sitting and eating areas all with a delightful view over the Umbrian valleys and hills all complimented by the safe swimming pool to cool off after taking the Italian sun.
At a practcal level an easy drive from Perugia and a selection of large well stocked supermarkets a few kilometers away on the outskirts of Gubbio
La Quercia remains quite the best all round vacation experience we have enjoyed in many years of holidaying in Italy
An amazing villa set in tranquil surroundings .........
We stayed for one week in this wonderful villa in Italy. The villa is nestled in the countryside with spectacular views and sunrises to die for. The villa's interior is stunning with great attention to detail. All mod cons to hand and clearly no expense spared. It's not just a villa it's a "home" and a beautiful one at that! Perfect in every way. Thank you
thank you so much, Glad you had a great stay.....
Hopefully see you again. sam
Wonderful restful week.
This was the nicest property that we have stayed at in Italy and we go every year. The views are spectacular. The house has everything you would need for a holiday and is well looked after. The kitchen is well equipped and great to cook in. The outdoor space is well designed and we enjoyed many BBQs. The pool is simply gorgeous. We found a lovely agritourismo to eat an evening meal at with the most amazing home cooked Italian food only 5 mins drive away. We went back again. Thank you Sam and Jeremy for a lovely relaxing week in your beautiful house. We would love to return next year.
This was our second time at La Quercia and it remains absolutely fabulous! Gorgeous setting and beautiful home which has everything you could possibly need for a wonderful holiday, possibly the nicest place we have ever stayed - we will be back!
