A large independent villa for 14 people, located at only 20 km from the picture perfect town of Orvieto. Thanks to its central position, the villa is an easy starting point for day trips around Umbria region. Umbria is probably less known than Tuscany, but still an amazing region, rich of many medieval towns, wild landscapes and excellent food and wine. This beautiful, spacious farmhouse is set in a wonderful quiet position, half away between Orvieto and Todi, in the heart of Umbria. It is surrounded by olive groves and cypress trees in a landscape modeled by centuries of farmers' patient toil. The views encompass the Castle of Guardea and stretch as far as the town of Orvieto, across the rolling countryside. Recently restored at the highest standards and personally furnished with excellent taste by the owners, the villa has a perfect joining of modern taste and tradition, in a wonderful balance of antique furniture combined with modern conveniences, including air conditioning and WIFI Internet connection. The property is surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves, and cultivated fields. It consists of 2 adjacent stone houses: the main house sleeps up to 10 people in 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Next to the main house, there is a smaller guest house, with 2 more bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a laundry room. Thanks to its layout we suggest this property for family reunions or for 5-7 couples, excellent for a group which wants some privacy but also the chance to be together in one place. In fact, there are different outdoor spaces such the elegantly furnished loggia with comfortable couches and open views over the countryside, a second outdoor living room and a third pergola just next to the kitchen with table and chairs for 14 people. At few steps far from the house there is the panoramic pool, another furnished patio and the tennis court. From here the view is even better! The property is surrounded by a manicured garden full of roses, lavender and other different kinds of flower. Famous destinations include Todi, Spoleto, Assisi and Perugia, but it is also possible to wander away from the most beaten tourist tracks to explore smaller treasure like Civita di Bagnoregio, in Lazio, or the spectacular gardens of the Castello di Vignanello near Viterbo, at only 46 km away. Rome can be reached by train in about one hour and a half. Golf course (18 holes) in Perugia. Horse riding at 5 minutes from the villa.
