About Villa Pulciana

My name is Odilla. I am very passionate about travel and good food. I am the owner of Villa Pulciana. I have run this country house with enthusiasm since 2009 and over the years I have had a lot of satisfaction from my customers. Since the beginning, this work has become rather like a hobby, it allows me to meet new people with who I have established good relations. My goal is always for the guests to spend an unforgettable holiday in Italy.

Villa Pulciana purchased this villa in 2009

Why Villa Pulciana chose Perugia area

I choose this property for the quiet, the charme of the house and the beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Superb farmhouse with masses of charm, history and romance in an exceptional

location. It was more than we could have hoped for and a privilege to stay

here. The spacious and stylish interior was spotless, with much thought given

to both practical and aesthetic details. The position is perfect for

sightseeing in both Tuscany and Umbria, although it was difficult to tear

ourselves away. We loved just being 'at home'. Our many memories include

lounging at the pool surrounded by bird song, wonderful scents and stunning

panoramic vistas: breakfasting on the terrace with magical views to the valley;

sipping wine under the beautiful loggia.

We have recommended Villa Pulciana to friends, family and colleagues and look

forward to returning one day.

Fantastic holiday at Villa Pulciana

  • 5 of 5

This summer we went to Umbria for the first time. We have been several times in Tuscany, but the choice of Umbria was something we absolutely did not regret. Our decision of house to rent turned out to be a great success.

We loved Villa Pulciana from the first minute. The view was beautiful and the pool one of the favorite spots during the warm and sunny week.

We also spent hours in morning and evenings at the balcony on the first floor.

Odilla is a wonderful host and made us feel at home. We were all together a family of 12 people from the age of 2 until 90. We celebrated both 90 and 60 years birthdays. Odilla organized a great birthday meal one night at the house.

We will not forget it.

During the week we visited a lot of exiting places like Montalchino, Assisi, Cortona, Montefalco and Lago di Trasimeno.

Having a wine expert among us we also enjoyed several wine tastings. In Umbria, Tabbarini was a favorite. Lunch at the Alchimista in Montefalco is also to be recommended. Citta della Pieve is a picturesque little village. We went there for lunches and shopping.

Thank you for wonderful memories. We will be back for more celebrations.

wonderful summer 2015

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa in summer 2015 between 30.05. until 05.06.. We are a family consisting of 11 adults with 6 children. We loved the privacy at the villa in the hills. The villa was perfect for the whole family from grandma up to the little children. Each floor features its own apartment with kitchen and bathrooms. We spent a lot of time at the exciting pool with a wonderful panorama view on to the umbrian and tuscan hillside. Our barbecues in the garden are unforgettable. We had nice evenings with eating on the loggia with the wonderful fiew. During the day we made some excursions to the near and lovely cities of citta della pieve, Orvieto and Montepulciano. It was a wonderful place and a wonderful trip. Odilla was very friendly and helpful. In the morning she looked after the pool and the garden with the wonderful flowers.

It was an unforgettable journey and we hope that we can come back one day

Thank you

Fabian

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible villa! My dream was to rent a villa for 2 weeks with

family and friends. The villa was beautiful and perfect for my guests -

each floor is it's own apartment so each group had private space while

having the flexibility to mingle with others. It's obvious a lot of care

and love went into restoring this farm house. It was exactly as

described to me. We felt we had everything we needed complete with

appliances - microwave, coffee maker, etc. We also scheduled a cooking

class and a chef to come in to make dinner 2 nights. The scheduling was

seamless for me. The grounds were well kept - and we spent lots of time

at the gorgeous pool We found the location to be a perfect blend of

being out in the country with relatively close proximity to hilltop

towns - most within 1/2 - 1 hour away. We spent lots of time in Citta

Della Pieve and visited many others including Orvieta, Chiusi, San

Casciano dei Bagni, Fighine, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and more.

And Odilla was very accommodating and friendly. I really couldn't have

asked for more - and even better than that, my guests loved the

experience! I recommend this to friends and family - and hope I can

return one day!

Excellent destination

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa Pulciana in September. The location was accurate. Close to

Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Rome, Siena and Florence. The property was very

clean. The owner was super friendly and provided great customer service. The

villa was georgous and well maintained. Many bedrooms, many bathrooms!. The

view fantastic and the pool excellent.

Thanks for a remarkable, unforgettable vacation.

Extraordinary Tuscan Villa with amazing

  • 5 of 5

5 star experience. Extremely hospitable owner that was very helpful. Welcoming meal was amazing and we would highly recommend it. Owner was able to recommend and put us in touch with all the right people from car rentals, to wine tasting tour, to various excursions throughout the region and recommendations for shopping and dining. Our group of 14 had an amazing stay at this villa and without any reservations recommend it. We look forward to a return trip to Villa Pulciana. The Villa was extremely clean and has everything you need on each of the 3 levels including 6 bathrooms, 3 kitchen areas, 3 living room and dining room areas, and amazing 2nd floor outdoor sitting/dining area. Pool area was spotlessly clean, well cared for and had several very comfortable lounge chairs in sun and shaded area. Amazing views for plenty of picture opportunities. The owner was extremely attentive to all of our needs, we were very comfortable with checking in with her to ask for recommendations to dine out, to arrange for travel or even for local food shopping area. Can't say enough about these accomodations. Great experience, thanks for your generous hospitality, and we look forward to coming back.
