Huge and elegant villa located in the famous area of Spoleto in Umbria. This amazing villa, renewed with all modern amenities, has 13 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms and can accommodate up to 26 guests.
The historical Complex of Villa Darmene is located along the way from Spoleto to Montefalco, perched up on a hill and surrounded by olive trees, with a 360 degree outlook to the horizon. It is one of the the most remarkable examples of elegant countryside residences in Spoleto and in the entire Umbria region. All architectural elements are, so to speak, limbs of a body whose style and character - extending to other... complementary functions and uses - give the whole structure unity in purpose and artistic value.
After the 1990s, careful and important restoration works took place and were finally completed only very recently. The structure of the major part of the complex was reinforced and improved using period materials and anti-seismic devices. In agreement with the Fine Arts Superintendency of the Umbria Region, a large part of the Villa's original plan was reinstated in order to preserve the architectural unity. Most of the decorations were also restored. All renovated sections are now attractively arranged, with all the amenities for comfortable modern living.
The Villa's vast central building, named Casino Principale (main country house) in the original plan, became known as "The Delizia" (delight). Valadier designed its magnificent expansive front, spatially enlarged by the exedrae in the square. Together, the Villa is beautiful and harmonious, with elements both of Roman baroque style and French buildings of the same period. At the rear, the Villa does not have the same symmetry as the front, and sits serenely on top of the hill towards the sunset and the chapel. The building has three levels: ground floor, mezzanine and main floor (piano nobile). The ground floor houses a large salon, a drawing room with pool table, a large, fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms. On the mezzanine several small libraries and service rooms are located. On the main floor, in addition to two entry halls with painted walls and numerous bedrooms, there is a vast terrace with the most splendid view over Spoleto, a long balcony at the front, the loggia to the west and several small drawing rooms.
The Main Villa can accommodate up to 21 guests. The bedrooms are distributed on different sides of the Noble ( first) floor and each has a different but magnificent view of the valley. Ten bedrooms: 8 doubles and 2 singles; 8 bedrooms have ensuite private bathrooms, 2 bedrooms share one bathroom; all bedrooms have heating and free wifi; 7 bedrooms have also air conditioning. Each room has its own personality, 700’s pastel colors painted walls and antique furniture, and all of them magnificent overlooking to the valley and the park. In the recent restructuring most of the bathrooms have been, with great care, completely renovated.
The third floor is on the same level as the Villa, are 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms can be used as a self-contained apartment; on the middle floor built along the hill slope - internally connected by way of the tunnel- a double bedroom with bathroom, the White room and a large studio room, the King studio room, go down to a separate spacious garden, the sunset Square (Piazzale del Tramonto). This square has a small building, the workshop lab, originally a tool and carriage shed. It is now an art studio and can include the external area as an additional studio. The Oldie Kitchens can be accessed independently from the Villa through the "Viale dei Gelsi" (Mulberry Lane) from where the view of the valley at sunset is breathtaking.
11 of the 13 bedrooms are air conditioned and the windows have mosquito nets.
The villa can only be booked from Saturday to Saturday (please ask for different dates).
