Owned by the same family for generations, Monticello is part of one of the most exclusive country estates in Italy. The interiors are simple and modern, with authentic Umbrian touches and high beamed ceilings. The open indoor living areas flow outdoors, creating a natural progression from villa to garden to countryside.
Made up of a few thousand hectares, filled with olive groves, valleys, lakes, woodland and rivers, the estate also offers fantastic services and helpful staff. Golfing, cooking classes, wine-tasting and fishing, are but a few of the activities that can be arranged for you here. Breathtaking scenery and indigenous wildlife are typical sights when taking a walk or going for a hike along the marked routes around the estate. Intrepid hikers will also find themselves stumbling across some remarkable views of Lake Trasimeno and Perugia, along the tops of the neighbouring mountains.
Located at the top of a hill, the villa has a full 360° view of its surroundings which can be enjoyed in the shade of the pergola and from the generous infinity pool. The living room has comfortable sofas and a large stone fireplace and connects with the dining room, which has seating for six people. Two large doors lead to the outside terrace and gardens with several options for al fresco dining and the kitchen is fully-equipped with a small table for cosy indoor dinners. The bedrooms are spacious, each with king size beds and private en suites.
