Commanding a secluded spot among the rolling hills of a vast Umbrian estate, Villa Caminata is the kind of luxury Italian home away from home that you’ll want to return to year after year.
The striking stone building is as impressive inside as it is outside, with big airy rooms perfect for socialising and relaxing. Exposed beams and an original fireplace give the otherwise airy lounge a cosy, homely ambience. While in the bedrooms, bold and colourful patterns are used to contrast with the traditional terracotta tiled floors and typical Italian dark wood furniture.
Away from the main villa, a one-bedroom cottage is the perfect romantic retreat and comes complete with its own open-plan kitchen and dining area.
The villa’s huge garden is undoubtedly its biggest selling point. Not only because of its sweeping countryside views, but also because of its beautifully manicured foliage and numerous peaceful areas. With over 3000 plants, each taking it in turn to bloom as the seasons change, the garden at Villa Caminata is always a rainbow of colour throughout the year.
A large swimming pool takes pride of place and is surrounded by sun loungers and soft grass for sunbathing. Away from the pool there is also another grassy area with adjacent outdoor sofas, a pretty dining pergola clad in fuchsia flowers sits in front of the cottage and there is a further dining terrace outside the kitchen, perfect for breakfasts in the sun.
