Description

Perched high on the Umbrian hills, Villa Monticelli is a luxury Italian villa that offers as much in rustic charm as it does in home comforts and top-of-the-range tech.

The building, located on an exclusive estate, was once an old farmhouse, which has since been renovated into a really special home from home, decorated in earthy Umbrian neutrals, set off by modern furniture and soft furnishings.

As you approach, the drive gives you views over the 11th-Century Antognolla Castle and rolling countryside, so that by the time you reach the front door you’re already feeling relaxed and ready to open the wine and kick back in the sunshine.

With very flexible accommodation, this is a wonderful property for a group family holiday or a break with friends. As well as two king-size en-suites, one super king-size en-suite, and a quad bunk room in the main house, there’s also a guest house with a further two king-size en-suite bedrooms, so anyone who needs a little space or quiet can find it easily in the cool and shady bedrooms. The air-conditioned guest house also has a small kitchen, its own living space with fireplace, TV, DVD player and Sky.

In the main house, there are plenty of spaces to gather with friends. Two sitting rooms, one with a statement fireplace, give you all somewhere to get together after the sun’s gone down. The nearby dining room is an elegant place for enjoying good food and fine wines together long into the evenings.

But it’s the outside spaces that really impress (and why wouldn’t you want to be outdoors as much as possible under the Umbrian sun, with hills rolling away into the distance?).

Villa Monticelli’s spacious terraces and pergola offer lots of places for eating outdoors, from your first coffee of the day to your evening supper and nightcaps. The private landscaped garden is a beautiful place to wander, taking in not only the views, but also the heady scents of olive trees and lavender and the sound of bees buzzing in the shrubberies. And, of course, the infinity swimming pool, surrounded by teak decking and looking out onto the hills, is the icing on the cake of this luxury Umbrian holiday villa, that’s it’s almost impossible to drag yourself away from.

Location

Hidden away on the exclusive Murlo estate is this luxury Umbrian villa.

Villa Monticelli is housed in a renovated farmhouse surrounded by ancient olive trees, and set high on the slopes of the Antognolla Golf Course.

The estate is based in the beautiful Umbrian hills, putting Villa Monticelli close to lots of beautiful Umbrian and Tuscan hill towns and only 20 minutes from the historic city of Perugia.

Eating

Umbria is one of the best parts of Italy in which to enjoy good foods and fine wines, and there’s plenty here to explore.

Villa Monticelli has a spacious kitchen, with a sociable kitchen island, where you can cook while friends gather with a glass of wine. Outside, there are lots of places to eat al fresco, as well as barbecues so you can enjoy some of the local foods out in the sunshine, the way they were meant to be experienced.

The Murlo Estate, on which the villa is located, has its own excellent restaurant, Il Caldaro, which specialises in local meat, homemade pasta and other local dishes, all using only the best ingredients, sourced locally and seasonally. Il Caldaro also has its own farm shop where you can buy ingredients with which to experiment in the kitchen yourself while here, or take home some of Umbria’s delicious produce as gifts. We highly recommend the estate’s own olive oil – better than any oil you’ll have tasted anywhere else.

Service of a private chef can be arranged if you wish, to make every meal a wonderful memory.

Kids

Children are made most welcome at Villa Monticelli. A four-berth bunk room, with two sets of bunks, is a wonderful spot for kids to make their den for the week. There’s also a guest house with two king-sized rooms, ideal for accommodating older teens, a nanny, or perhaps adults who need a bit of time away from the happy boisterousness!

For older kids, there’s a large LCD TV with Sky sports and movie channels, as well as Blu-Ray and DVD player, and they’ll be relieved to hear there is high-speed internet so they won’t be completely cut off from their friends. Children of all ages will love splashing in the private infinity pool, too.

For those travelling with babies, cots, highchairs and baby baths are all available on request to help you make packing and travelling that bit easier.

Nannies and babysitters are available on request.
