On a beautiful estate in the very heart of Umbria, this villa is not only in an attractive setting, but also benefits from being close to some of the region’s highlights. The villa was originally a church where the local farmers would congregate and it was used for Sunday Mass until the late 1970s.
The setting is secluded with the private pool (11mx5m) overlooking the estate and mountains in the distance. From parts of the estate you can see the famous art city of Assisi - very pretty and well worth visiting. The region's capital city Perugia is 30 minutes away with a wealth of cultural activities that include opera and the famous Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate festivals. For golf lovers, the villa is very conveniently placed for the renowned Antognolla course.
The renovation has stayed true to the original architecture and Pizzicato’s interiors are traditional in style, with handsome dark-wood furniture and stone walls reflecting the property’s history. There is a very well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, large fridge, oven and microwave oven and there is also a good laundry room. The property is fitted with a large LCD TV with Sky channels, DVD player, CD player and iPod dock and the Wi-Fi has been set up to ensure that there is signal throughout the house and the pool area.
Outdoors the property enjoys landscaped gardens and a generous infinity pool and hot tub. One of the villa's best features is the wooden deck terrace, with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and al fresco dining options. There is also a strategically placed breakfast table just outside the kitchen area, which is perfectly set to catch the most glorious morning sunshine.
