Nestled in the hills of Umbria between Umbertide and Perugia, with views over the Antognolla golf course, villa Caminata is ideal for a golf getaway or romantic retreat. The charming five-bedroom house is surrounded by a lush garden and separate guest house with its own private living area, kitchenette and bedroom. It’s just minutes away from the greens and clubhouse.
Start the day with a coffee at one of the outdoor dining areas on the terrace, then bring a book down to a lounge chair by the pool. Prepare lunch on the outdoor grill and enjoy the meal in the shade of the pergola-covered al-fresco dining area. After a day of sightseeing or golf, relax with satellite TV, the iPod dock or DVD player. For convenience and comfort, there’s air conditioning and Wi-Fi access in both the main house and guest cottage.
Caminata’s interiors are eclectic and relaxed. The spacious living room has two seating areas, facing either the garden or fireplace, and a comfortable mix of a velour sofa, wicker wingback chairs and tufted leather ottomans anchored by beamed ceilings and terracotta floors. The traditional vibe is carried through to the dining room, which has floral drapes and vintage-style round-backed chairs, and the eat-in kitchen, which has ladder-back chairs and exposed wood shelving.
Each of the villa’s six bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom; five are in the main house and one is in the guest cottage. In the main house, there are four bedrooms with king beds, and one bedroom with two twin beds. The guest cottage has a bedroom with two twin beds as well as its own sitting area, TV and kitchenette.
Whether you stroll through the garden of over 3,000 plants or simply relax by the pool, there’s plenty to do at the villa itself. But during your stay, don’t miss a visit to the Antognolla golf course, a 2-minute drive away, even if it’s just to have a drink at the clubhouse. The club is situated between Umbertide and Perugia in Umbria, close to Lake Trasimeno and the border with Tuscany.

The house is new but has the look of a classic farm house restoration. Everything works the way it is supposed to and the layout is very amenable to families. The staff, and Namal in particular, are extremely helpful and go out of their way to make your stay as perfect as possible. The approach to the property is up a somewhat steep, windy gravel road - having said that, the road into the property is well maintained. I got used to it after a few trips up and down but I could see how that would be frustrating if you were not good at shifting a manual transmission car - I would let people know when they reserve the villa that the drive up will be a challenge. Customers might decide to pay extra to rent an automatic transmission car. I would also suggest you tell guests to pre-stock the villa with groceries - we did this and we were glad we did. You do not want to arrive late in the day and have to drive back down the gravel road and return in the dark on your first day. - Mark U., ,
