Wander through this luxury villa’s light-filled rooms and you’ll find hand-picked Italian artefacts and artworks gracing the traditional stone walls. These, coupled with the stylish neutral tones and luxe fabrics – are evidence of the dedication and painstaking attention to detail it has taken to renovate and restyle Villa Piantaverna.
Once a farmhouse, this luxury villa with a pool on the borders of Umbria and Tuscany is simply steeped in history. Nestled at the very heart of the renowned Castello di Reschio private estate and nature reserve, it offers true sanctuary.
This 3,700 acre estate houses 50 farmhouses, scattered far apart between olive groves and vineyards. Around half of these properties have been converted into luxury villas.
You’ll leave the outside world behind the moment you set eyes on the formal terraced garden at Villa Piantaverna crammed with fragrant fruit trees, lavender and rosemary. Countryside views from every vantage point add to the charm.
The main house has three bedrooms. Just off the courtyard, you’ll find a separate suite with one bedroom. There’s also an infinity pool looking out over a meadow – the ideal spot for basking in the Umbrian sunshine with a cocktail.
Of course, you might rouse yourself to sample activities including horse riding, tennis, clay pigeon shooting, wild boar hunting and mountain biking. But no one would judge you for staying poolside for as long as humanly possible.
There’s a huge open plan kitchen and dining room at Villa Piantaverna, which makes it a wonderful option for keen chefs. But for true relaxation, mealtimes can be enjoyed at the estate’s private restaurant, Osteria. Alternatively, dinners and drinks can be delivered direct to your door.
In short, you need never lift a finger during your magical stay at Villa Piantaverna.
