Italian Farmhouse

This traditional Italian farmhouse originally built in the mid 19th century is located in the lush Umbrian countryside. At a distance of 9 kilometers (5,5 miles) from Assisi or 15 minutes by car in a hilly area called Paradiso it provides beautiful views of the valley below as well as on Monte Subasio, be it from the house or from the large pool area.

There is a large dining room with fireplace for the cooler months, with a professional kitchen attached, as well as tables and chairs outside in the courtyard, facing the valley and Monte Subasio. Our pool is 7m x 14m and is  surrounded by rosemary on one side, and lavender on the other. The view from there is not to be missed. Situated on the property around the villa are areas where you can go for hikes, lay under our many fruit trees and read a book, meditate, or just take a nice nap. There is also a fitness area with a treadmill, rowing machine, and free weights, as well as a ping pong table near our small fish pond.

It is the perfect place to unplug, spend quality time with family and friends, let the kids run free and play with the animals and enjoy the country living.

Speaking of animals: over the last years more and more cats have shown up, most of which stay outside, but when the door is open, they also like to try and sneak into the dining room. They are absolutely not allowed in the guest rooms and apartments, except when our guests are traveling with their own dog or cat.

We also live onsite with our Labrador mix dog Maia and a few house cats (and a few free-roaming chickens), but the privacy of our guests is very important to us. When you check in, we will show you around, explain all the features and then give you as much privacy as you want.

Obviously we can also provide breakfast for you, additional cleaning upon request, a private chef or pizzaiolo for dinners at the villa, or help you setting up restaurant reservations or activities. How about a wine tasting at the villa? Or a chocolate lesson which is always fun, not just with children. We also offer painting lessons, massages or Shiatsu and Yoga or meditation with a professional instructor.

During your stay you can relax at the Villa or go and explore the beautiful sites Umbria has to offer. Within 30-45 minutes you have plenty of different magical places to visit, for example Assisi, Spello, Gubbio, Perugia, Trasimeno Lake, the Marmore waterfalls etc.
