Experience Umbria in luxury at Villa San Paolo. Located on the large Castello di Reschio estate, the property was converted from a 17th-century farmhouse, chapel and rectory into a villa with seven bedrooms spread out over a main house with chapel, guest cottage and pool house. Let the estate’s staff provide memorable service while you enjoy unforgettable views of the countryside and Sorbello and Reschio castles.
The villa’s extensive grounds boast olive groves, broad lawns, an infinity pool and several outdoor sitting and dining areas. The hot tub, pool house and pool bar were made for relaxing, a fountain adds atmosphere and a barbecue, bread oven and fire pit invite you to dine outside and have a drink afterwards. Inside, take advantage of the library, piano, satellite TV and Wi-Fi access, do some exploring in the wine cellar and don’t miss little touches like heated floors and towel racks.
Inside, Villa San Paolo offers rustic comfort with a modern twist. Brick hearths, terracotta floors and exposed wood beams speak to its farmhouse past, while wingback sofas and slipper chairs in muted blues and grays and nailhead trim are more contemporary touches. A long table, candelabras and antique art in the dining room hint at the property’s religious roots. The fully equipped, neutral-toned kitchen has a breakfast bar and on-trend pendant lights.
The five bedrooms in the main house each have en-suite bathrooms. There are four bedrooms with double beds and dressing rooms, one of which has a fireplace and private terrace, and one bedroom with a single bed. In the guest cottage, which is independent but attached, there’s a bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom with dressing area, a study, kitchenette, and living and dining rooms. In the pool house, you’ll find a bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom, as well as the pool bar, kitchenette, bread oven and a changing room.
During your stay, take time to stroll the Castello di Reschio estate, take a mountain bike or horseback ride and bring your racquet to the shared tennis court. If you’d like to venture off the estate, it’s easy to explore both Umbria and Tuscany. The town of Cortona is a 20-minute drive away, the galleries and theaters of Perugia are 30 minutes away, Florence is 90 minutes away and Rome is a 120-minute drive.

Castello di Reschio is a very private estate that covers 2,700 acres of Umbrian countryside on the border with Tuscany. This is the green heart of Italy, a land of rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and woods of oak and chestnut, where little has changed since St Francis of Assisi preached here in the Middle Ages.
Scattered around this unspoiled landscape are 50 farmhouses that seem as ancient as the hills. To date more than twenty have been beautifully restored for clients to create private houses, tailored to individual tastes in a style and quality of finish that meets the highest international standards. Each home is unique and has been created and furnished by the owners of Castello di Reschio, Count Antonio Bolza and two generations of his family who live in the 11th century Castello and run this magnificent estate.
Integral to Reschio is a unique combination of world class service and facilities, privacy, security and nature at its most tranquil. The 5* concierge service available to all guests through the Estate Management Company includes personal drivers, daily maid service, food delivery and cooking services.
Residents can enjoy classic Italian food in the delightful setting of the Osteria, horse-riding, mountain biking and country walks on the estate and floodlit tennis.
Castello di Reschio is centrally placed to enjoy the highlights of Umbria and Tuscany and is only 20 minutes from Cortona or half an hour from the galleries, churches, opera, film and jazz festivals or theaters in Umbria's capital city, Perugia. Florence and Rome are within two hours drive, and Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Todi and Orvieto are all close by.
Additional amenities include: concierge, piano, security system, beach chairs, wine cellar, pool house, pool bar, poolkeeper, fire pit, heated floor, breakfast bar, tennis nearby, fountain, alfresco dining, mountain bike, electronic gate, gardener....Read more
