Known as "la terra dei santi" - or land of the saints, Umbria is the birthplace of many saints including Italy's patron saint St Francis, and it has always been considered by the Italians as a spiritual place where you can benefit from the unspoiled countryside. Villa Il Canto is one of the five exclusive villas on this private estate, all offering impressive levels of comfort and elegance and incomparable views over the verdant countryside and the nearby Antognolla Golf Course. The grounds are also home to lush green woods and stretching olive groves.
The estate is the perfect spot for sports lovers: in addition to golfing, guests can enjoy fishing on the estate’s many lakes, hiking on marked trails or relaxing with a massage and a beauty treatment in the privacy of the villa. For those that do not want to cook, the estate's restaurant offers fine cuisine using fresh ingredients from the Estate, as well as handmade pizzas cooked in wood oven.
The relaxed interiors of Villa Il Canto offer the perfect setting for a holiday in the Umbrian countryside. The spacious living room offers two seating areas either overlooking the blooming garden or nestled around the fireplace. High beamed ceilings and terracotta floors can be found throughout the villa contributing to the traditional charm of the property. The villa’s grounds are generous and perfect for spending relaxed days lounging by the pool or enjoying in the shade of the pergola.
