Style Notes

Rustic beauty. Lovingly renovated and sensitively restored by the family who owns the estate, this stunning villa combines natural stone, arched windows and terracotta roof tiling to blend seamlessly into the Umbrian landscape. The interiors blend historic beams, natural stone floors and cotto walls with sleek glass picture windows and bold, colorful textiles to create bright, light-filled rooms. Vintage treasures are set beside contemporary finds including sculpted lamps and pottery to create warmth and interest. Untamed nature meets manicured beauty in the gardens with rows of lavender and crisp lawns surrounded by wild, forested hills and valleys. We love the stunning views of the Umbrian countryside, with plenty of sofas, terraces and windows to soak them in from, morning coffee or sunset aperitivo in hand.
