Style Notes

Modern Eco. The Olivetto Residence is brand new and purpose built as a vacation rental on this ancient Umbrian estate. It has been built using the latest eco technology, with superior insulation, solar heating and reflective, energy efficient glass. The windows were handmade in wood by local artisans, the sills cut from local marble and the finishing touches incorporate both recycled and locally sourced materials. Many pieces have been collected from local designers and the pictures are by a local artist. The style is quirky and modern, yet practical.

We were a young energetic couple who gave up sensible jobs in the city to pursue our dream of living and working in Italy. We are passionate about preserving the environment, locally grown food and embracing a slower pace of life. We spent several years painstakingly restoring our abandoned 17th century farmstead and even longer resurrecting and clearing the 20 acres of surrounding olive groves and abandoned countryside. We have opened our home to visitors since 2007 -We are pleased to say that after many years of hard work we have created a beautiful, environmentally & family friendly holiday villa that offers the perfect place in which to enjoy everything Umbria has to offer. We also manage and run a small organic farm which grows soft fruit, olives for oil and organic vegetables. We are now lucky enough to be living the Italian dream at Villa Pian Di Cascina with our 3 young children, our lovely black Labrador, Ollie and our very friendly flock of chickens.

Gubbio, Perugia

The town of fools

This town, known as the 'city of fools' is in the northeast of Perugia on the lowest slope of Mount Ingino. It's also the name of the surrounding commune, which includes a series of nearby villages. Take a cable car trip to the top of the mountain, admire the town's impressive piazza, cathedral and Roman ruins, and don't forget to run round the small fountain at Largo Bargello to earn your traditional 'fool's license'.
