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. 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.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
