This is one of the most exclusive private country estates in Italy owned by the same family for generations. The estate with its castle lies in the heart of Umbria. It dominates the suggestive valley of Monte Tezio and it is located only 20 km from Perugia and 15 km from Lago Trasimeno. With its 18000 acres of immaculate woods, valleys, lakes and rivers, it is the perfect place for a relaxing and private holiday providing a degree of comfort and elegance that it is difficult to surpass. This haven of tranquility is the perfect setting for those who seek a holiday retreat from their frenetic lifestyles and an escape to something more spiritual and calm, enjoying the luxuries of time out and privacy, yet backed by a five-star service and by the facilities and commodities of the nearby luxury golf resort, complete with 18 hole golf course, club and restaurant. Four spectacular villas (Serenata offered here,Villa nel Verde, Villa San SalvoandTorre nel Verde/ all featured in our portfolio) have just been restored to offer guests the possibility to explore and live Umbria and fully enjoy the charm of the Umbrian countryside. The important towns in Umbria are Perugia, Spoleto, Todi, Gubbio, Norcia, Assisi and Orvieto, and they are all in daytrip distance.
Serenata is the latest addition of holiday villas on this exceptional state. The villa can accommodate up to 12 guests, 2 of which can stay in the elegant separate cottage that lies in the garden of the villa. All 6 bedrooms (4 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedded rooms) have en suite bathrooms.
Surely the most spectacular element of the villa is the lush garden with more than 3000 plants that blossom at different times of the year, surrounding the holiday accomodation with a wonderful display of colours and shapes that are ever changing and alternating with the seasons of the year. In the garden you will find three different seating and dining areas for drinks and al fresco meals. The pool lies a little above the houses and has been laid with luxurious mosaics.
The villa has a remarkable view over the Umbrian hills and the adjacent golf course dominated in the distance by an fascinating medieval castle which is also part of the estate. The 18 holes championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, with golf clubhouse and restaurant facilities in the same estate is located at only 4 minutes from the villa, accessible also with golf cart through a private path across the nature reserve. Guests have discounts on the golf green fees and at the clubhouse restaurant.
The property is in a rural location, on the top of a hill (600 meter above sea level) within a country estate, which is a large Umbrian active agricultural farm. The access road to the property is a long and occasionally steep private white gravel road, not suitable for sports cars or any other low-height car. We would recommend the use of a 4 wheel drive car.
Additional amenities include: i pod speakers, water kettle, electric filter coffee machine, iron and ironing board, patio dining area, fridge and built-in freezer, hair dryers, secured parking within the fenced grounds of the villa.TripAdvisor property ID 2050116...Read more
