Description

Serene and stylish, this luxury villa in Umbria is a truly magical place to make your home for a week. Set in the exclusive private estate of Castello di Reschio, Casa Delle Suore, ‘the house of sisters’, was once a nunnery. Leaving its pious roots behind, the property has been expertly restored to retain its charm and history.

Centre stage, praise must be given to the breath-taking three-edged infinity pool stretching into the hills beyond, framed like a postcard by the red brick terrace complete with comfortable cushioned lounge area. Wafts of lavender create an aura of calm as you swim back and forth, and the wondrous  aromas seep into the house through the floor to ceiling glass doors which slide into the walls, merging the pool lounge and courtyard with the welcoming dinging room.

Dining is an event at Casa Delle Suore, and with a grand double height kitchen with rose gold and copper accents, only the beautiful al fresco terrace with roaring pizza oven could pull you away. That, or the dome shaped wine cellar that is hidden under the kitchen, a glimpse of which can be sneaked through the ocular window of the kitchen floor. After dinner, budding musicians can tinkle the ivories on the grand piano, with the musical notes making the perfect accompaniment to a dessert wine on one of the several terraces and loggias. Or to stretch out after an Italian feast, take a stroll through the gardens brimming with rosemary, thyme, lavender and sage.

Spread across the main house and the two guest houses, each of the bedrooms is air-conditioned, but on cooler evenings your toes will be grateful for the under-floor heating that stretches across the whole house. Wandering through rooms, you’ll find contemporary statement pieces, from four poster beds to industrial-style dressing areas and bathrooms with free-standing tubs and taps. No attention to detail has been forgotten, with contemporary metallic features dotted throughout.

Whether you’re floating in the swimming pool, lost in a page turner infront of the fire or reclining at the pool lounge, it’s easy to find a little peace here. But for those who like their holidays a little more active, there is plenty to keep you busy, from clay pigeon shooting to tennis on your court and more – not forgetting the historic estate, olive groves and forests to wander in and explore.

Location

Casa Delle Suore is set in the Castello di Reschio Estate, an exclusive collection of cottages, a private restaurant, bottega and enoteca on the borders of Umbria and Tuscany.

Surrounded by oak forests and olive groves, the estate is a peaceful, magical place to spend a quiet holiday, but with a little bit of luxury on your doorstep to ensure you never need lift a finger.

Perugia, Sienna, Arezzo and Cortona are all within striking distance, but if you choose to you could spend a week on this secluded estate barely seeing another human.

The nearest airport is Perugia, just 45 minutes drive away. Florence is around an hour and 45 minutes away and Pisa is 2 hours and 30 minutes away.

Eating

Casa Delle Suore is part of the exclusive Castello di Reschio Estate, itself nestled in the heart of gastronomic Umbria, among the olive groves. The estate has a talented team of chefs to create fabulous menus from local and seasonal ingredients for you, whether you want to hire them for a one-off special occasion or to provide three meals a day throughout your stay.

There’s also Osteria, a restaurant within the grounds of the estate, where traditional Umbrian food is served, some of it grown on the estate itself, alongside a tempting wine list, including Reschio’s very own San Giovese. Osteria has a beautiful loggia with fabulous views to enjoy on long, warm evenings, and on cooler nights, there’s a roaring fire indoors.

If you prefer something easy in the privacy of your own villa, Osteria is also home to the Kitchen Shop where you can purchase home-cooked meals or seasonal and local ingredients to experiment with yourself. You can also buy bottles from the wine list – and all of it can be delivered to your villa.
