Our villa was built in the early 1700s and renovated into a holiday home with each room in the villa having a private, full bathroom. It’s on almost 5 acres of beautifully kept gardens and fields and also has 2 swimming pools. The villa is on the Tuscan/Umbrian border, halfway between Florence and Rome. Perfectly located to explore lots of nearby places.
The villa is about 1 km from Città della Pieve (about 15 mins on foot). A charming town with just over 7,000 residents with several eateries and cafes to choose from as well as a grand wall that dates back to the 1300s. Città della Pieve has won the Pio Alferano 1st Prize as the most perfect town in Italy and it’s only 1 km from our villa!
Most other villas in Tuscany/Umbria are about 5 - 15 km to the closest town so a car would be needed which can be very expensive. Other villages within walking distance from other villas only have 100 or so residents and lack basic amenities. Our villa is perfect thanks to its close proximity to the town. We’ll most likely be the only visitors there which makes it a great escape from the droves of tourists in nearby cities.
There will be a local host/concierge available daily to help arrange activities, excursions, etc. in your free time. If you want to rent a bike or car, tour a balsamic vinegar factory, visit a saffron farm or anything else, the concierge can help you arrange it!
