If your dream Italian vacation takes place on the golf course, look no further than Villa Allegra. Tucked into the rolling hills outside Perugia on the Murlo Castle estate, the four-bedroom home has spectacular views of the valley below Mount Tezio, a prime location near a golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., and charming rustic ambience.
The villa has extensive outdoor spaces, perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing or golf. A large deck with a seating area has commanding views of the landscape, as do the pool and pool terrace. A charcoal grill and al-fresco dining area let you enjoy the sunset over dinner. Indoors, relax with a glass of wine and watch a DVD from the library or browse via Wi-Fi access. Baby equipment like a crib and high chair welcomes even the youngest visitors.
The common areas of Villa Allegra are bright and cheerful. One living room has yellow walls, a built-in bookcase, and a red plaid sofa and chaise longue pulled up to a fireplace with a painted surround; the other has original stone walls, beamed ceilings and a perky striped sofa in red, green and gold. The cozy dining room shares the warm color scheme and has farmhouse-style ladder-back chairs, while the modern kitchen’s brick backsplash and floral curtains are full of country charm.
Each of Villa Allegra’s four bedrooms comes with a fan and window screens for comfortable sleeping even at the height of summer. Painted in shades of yellow, coral and aqua and boasting wrought-iron or wood beds, the rooms are inviting and restful. There are two bedrooms with king beds and en-suite showers, and two bedrooms with twin beds and en-suite baths.
If you’d prefer to spend your stay at the villa, chef and butler service can be arranged at extra cost. If you’ve come for the golf, the course is a 3-minute drive away. Further afield, it’s a 10-minute drive to the train station and grocery store, and a 15-minute drive to restaurants, a tennis court, a clinic and the hospital. A 20-minute drive brings you to Perugia, the Perugia airport, or Lake Trasimeno.
