GENERAL DETAILS + LOCATION
The villa has ceiling fans in every room plus air conditioning throughout.
A muted colour scheme creates a superbly relaxing atmosphere.
The owners enjoy an organic lifestyle. To this end, they’ve created vegetable gardens and an orchard, just a few meters beyond the pool. Guests are invited to help themselves to whatever is in season during their stay.
The panoramic views take in a vast landscape of mountains and valleys, peppered with vineyards and olive groves.
Here, you are in the heart of Italy’s olive oil, truffle and wine producing area. These vineyards, truffle woods and olive oil plantations are actually on your doorstep. Not only that, but this is the main reason you can eat so well and extremely economically – no rip-off tourist rates here! Imagine the price of a meal with fine wines and truffle in New York, London, Sydney or Hong Kong! At least 1000 euros/head. Here, the same meal is about 35 euros/head! And we Italians keep the best of everything for ourselves!!
The villa itself is fabulous.
Marble and parquet floors throughout.
The kitchen is small but very well equipped with dish washer, washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer etc. It can cater for groups of up to 15.
And, there is well equipped BBQ in the grounds.
There are numerous seating areas for dining and lounging, apart from the large Verandah.
You are 3 kilometers from either Montefalco, Foligno or Bevagna and 26 kilometers from Spoleto centre.
Foligno is a busy and very beautiful shopping centre.
In Montefalco or Bevagna, you will find lots of places that offer tastings. Both very beautiful places.
You can walk to all these places through the vineyards.
As for Spoleto, in comparison, this is like a visit to the big city, a walled, pedestrian, mediaeval, giant castle, teaming with hundreds of bars, restaurants, museums, art galleries and churches, all jostling for position in a myriad of arched and cobbled lanes, piazzas dotted here and there.
Both Montefalco and Bevagna are mini versions of Spoleto.
It’s just 1 kilometer to the nearest pizzeria and a few shops.
This is the land of plenty !
A member of the family lives next door. They tend the gardens, the land and clean the pool early in the morning before you wake….. or, at a time, you prefer. Otherwise, they are not in evidence, unless you wish for advice or help. They have their own private outside area, which cannot be seen from the villa.
