Set high in the hills of the green Umbria, Villa Umbrigiana offers unconventional views of the bucolic countryside and layer-upon-layer of mountain ridges. This property with four spacious bedrooms is a delightful home base for travellers wanting to explore the nature, culture and history of both Umbria and Tuscany.
On the ground floor of this beautiful stone villa, there is a large living room with fireplace perfect for light conversation or getting immersed in a good book. The dining room down the hall also has a fireplace as well as a long dining table that seats 8 guests. The fully equipped kitchen with a cooking stove, oven, a dishwasher and a big refrigerator is also on the ground floor. In the cozy entrance hall there is a stairway to reach the first floor.
The bedrooms are spread throughout the villa, with one on the ground floor and three more on the first floor. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and Florentine painters have hand-painted walls and restored ceilings, using the colors that graced the original walls of the estate – pale greens, violets and yellows.
There are several paths that guests can explore on long walks on the hillside behind the house. The long swimming pool is a great place to cool off after a day in the Italian sun. The villa’s location near Umbria’s capital Perugia yet just five miles from the Tuscan border, the property is less than an hour drive from many historic hilltop villages.
