THE LODGE (sleeps 4)

It has 2 bedrooms:

Bedroom 1 – 1 large double bed
Bedroom 2 – 2 twin beds

2 bathrooms – 1 on ground floor, the 2nd in the basement on same floor as the 2 bedrooms

Friend reunions and family gatherings…..

This large, spacious, comfortable house is perfect for reunions of family and/or old friends.

A property with vast amounts of space, where everyone can be private when they want, but, with an enormous sitting/dining room, where everyone can congregate together. Indeed, it can seat up to 20 persons easily, INSIDE AND OUTSIDE !

This Villa has a separate kitchen/breakfast room with a dish washer, just off the enormous dining area and next to the outside patio, overlooking the pool. The Lodge also has a separate fully equipped kitchen. just off the very large dining area, overlooking the pool.

Besides the large lap pool, there is a pergola with seating for 4 – 6 persons and……a fantastic sound system. And, for those of you who like discos, you can have the sound system turned up to full volume since all the land, as far as the eye can see and further, belongs to you, during your stay at Vallocchia Villa.

A central location with easy access to all the Umbrian “hot spots” !

Set in 44 hectares of PRIVATE drop-dead, gorgeous countryside, all private, ALL YOURS, Wifi throughout the villa and SKY TV, I can assure you there is nothing that can even begin to compete with this villa in the area. And, with the fairy tale, mediaeval, walled city of Spoleto, a city that predates Rome, just 10 – 20 mins drive away, Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Montefalco and Gubbio, all within easy reach, and, Rome, a mere 1 hr 15 mins drive (or, by train, from Spoleto station), this heavenly abode is an out and out winner!


We also provide a whole variety of activities at very low cost because all our activities are “in house” and totally authentic :

olive oil tasting, wine tasting, truffle hunts, chef at home, cookery lessons….all followed by sumptuous feasts with unlimited fine local wines eg you can go to the famous Ciarletti house and taste their excellent oil. This oil was blessed by the Pope a few years ago and the Ciarletti family supply the Vatican exclusively with their award winning olive oil. Part of our small partnership group, they offer these “tastings” (wonderful lunch, in fact!) at 30 euros/per person. And, if a few of you book together, you may receive a discounted rate, depending on the circumstances at the time. We, as your hosts, make no profit from these activities. They are provided at “cost” price as add-ons to make your holiday extra special !


Review #15752775 “Vallocchia Villa + Lodge, large pool with diving board, Rome 1 hr”
Hidden gem uncovered! Perfect for a group vacation.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Originally we wanted to stay in a villa in the Tuscan countryside. Fortunately we decided to make the extra effort to go that little bit further to Umbria and looking back it was a great decision. Our party was quite large (14) but the Vallocchia Villa was perfect for us. Being musicians it was important to us that we had the whole place to ourselves. We barbequed, we swam in the pool, we jammed, we cooked, we read and most of all, we chilled. Vallochia gave us the ability to do all we wanted…or nothing at all. Some of us broke away for day trips to Spello, Montefalco, Assisi and Rome. Tip: check out Restaurant Sabatini in Spoleto. The food and service were excellent!

Upon arrival to Spoleto we were greeted at the meeting point by Laurie, who then led us to the property.

The Villa itself was fabulous. Set atop a hill in the Spoleto countryside we had a gorgeous view to the north of Spoleto and on the south/east side the ridge line of the green hills forming part of the central Appenine mountain range. The house was well equipped with almost everything a group such as ours needs to prepare meals for each other with plenty of pots, pans, crockery, utinsels, and serving bowls and dishes.

There were a few small issues but a quick call to Laurie and the owner Enrique resolved those almost immediately. We very much appreciated their customer oriented approach to ensuring our stay was stress free and enjoyable. As there was no AC we were a little anxious beforehand that we would be sweltering in the heat. We did not miss AC at all. The Villa, with its shutter system remained cool throughout the week. The temperature averaged 30°C for the 7 days we were there and when the right windows were opened or closed the breeze and thick walls of the buildings kept us cool.

We were treated with a family of wild boar passing through the property early one morning as well as seeing a badger scurry across the private road upon returning from one of our day trips to a nearby town. On the property by the pool there is a large fig tree which we were able to pick fresh figs each day, as well as blackberries just behind the barbeque. The pool was wonderful. Exactly what we had hoped for. Tip though: be sure to bring plenty of insect repellent. The horseflies and mozzies can be nasty.

All in all we had a wonderful stay in Vallochia Villa and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an out of the way relaxing stay in a charming Italian Villa.

wonderful position with a great pool and good accommodation
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This year our family of 15 stayed at Spoleto. What a great villa with a wonderful pool. Out of the town and very quiet. The cooker and fridge in the big house were a bit of a challenge but in no way spoilt our stay. The grandchildren loved the pool and the holiday for all of us was over too quickly. A great location with lots of things to do and places to visit.
