FARMHOUSE VILLA MARIANNA-APT D: 2 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 6

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Spoleto - Villa Marianna nr Spoleto

Ideal for lovers and families alike, close to Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto + Rome

Villa Marianna, with a large pool, a fabulous 16C manor house with WiFi in every apt, its rooms large, light and airy.

In an intensely romantic setting, the 5 self-catering apartments are well-spaced from each other : A + C occupy the entire 1st floor, B + D occupy the entire ground floor, each apartment separated by spacious hall-ways, and E in a position on its own, annexed at the end of the house.

Hewn from the rocks, this majestic house looks over the pool and the magnificent, panoramic landscape, embracing monasteries, olive groves, woods, vineyards, fields of poppies, cherry orchards and hill-top villages, furling and unfolding through valleys and across a grand plain towards Assisi.

If you are seeking an intimate experience with Nature, fun and frolics by the pool, within easy reach of “the bright lights” of Spoleto, then, Villa Marianna is for you.

However, please note that there is a restaurant on the ground floor of Villa Marianna, which is open to the public and, subject to demand, it could be open for lunch and dinner, every day. It is not on the road and in this area, there is no passing trade. Therefore, people will book before arriving. The restaurant will be available for occasional events,such as weddings and birthday parties. It will close at 11 pm. The car park is set apart from the villa. However, our guests may hear people in the restaurant, leaving the restaurant or eating in the outside areas of the restaurant......and, even when the restaurant is shut, guests can linger on a balmy evening, maybe past your bed-time !

So, Villa Marianna is recommended for those of you who would like the convenience of a restaurant on site but who do not mind some disturbance because of this !

The pool is NOT open to the public and, therefore, is NOT available for those members of the public who use the restaurant. The pool is for the exclusive use of our holiday rental guests only. And, please note to date the pool is often quiet and sometimes empty, the majority of our guests preferring to explore historic sites than to lounge by a pool !

Villa Marianna, if booked as a whole, can sleep 32 persons. Enquire about a generously discounted rate if you wish to book all 5 apartments.

About Norma Williams

We were retired ! We 'fell' into our holiday rental business by accident. It started as a hobby after someone pleaded with us to rent them our house in San Mamiliano, while we were away.

We now have 2 major partners and between us, we offer up to 50 very diverse and beautiful villas, apartments and pool properties, both in central Spoleto and close by. Please see them all on my personal website, the address of which you will find at the bottom of the HomeAway page of this property.

However, we still do not regard ourselves as 'proper business people' because we care far more about contributing to making our guests' holidays fantastic than we do about making money.

We hope you stay with us !

a week in Villa Marianna

  • 3 out of 5
We have just spent one week in Villa Marianna (end of April - beginning of May 2013). The house is very comfortable, apartments well equipped and the location really beautiful. It is quite remote but this is what we wanted and so we liked it. The host - Laurie is a nice and helpful person.

Our companion occupied apt. E, apt. D and apt. A. The other 2 apartments remained empty so, in theory, we had the house for ourselves.....Well: almost for ourselves.

On the 2nd night of our stay we found out that, apart from the 5 apartments, there was also a kind of restaurant in the same building located beneath the ground floor. From time to time people come here to have a family reunion or other type of parties. During our stay (7 days) there were 2 dinners and 1 long lasting lunch and on all the 3 occasions it was really loud and the whole area became more similar to a "piazza " in a nice italian town rather than to a quiet agriturismo we had hoped for. There was no information about this restaurant on the web page when we were making our reservation and this is why we were really disappointed.

To compensate us for this bad surprise Laurie invited us to one of the dinners. It was very nice of him and we do appreciate it, especially that the food was really good. However the fact stays the fact: nobody told us about the restaurant in the premises when we made our enquiry about the rental and we decided to stay in this property far away from any town because we wanted to have a quite place with no parties!

To summarize: we would love our stay in Villa Marianna if it had not been disturbed 3 times by the restaurant guests. We would consider coming back, preferably in a summer time, if we were sure that the restaurant would be closed. Otherwise we would rather look for a different place.

Owner's Response: Everything that our guest has said is correct and fair. However, it should be noted that, while we do have restaurant facilities at Villa Marianna, from June 1 to Aug 31, we ONLY offer lunches AND ONLY to our guests - NO local people allowed and NO dinners. At a time, when the villa is most occupied, we are concerned to retain the tranquillity of the villa.

However, outside of the busiest 3 months of June, July and August, the villa is never fully occupied; and, because it is a mountain villa, we have found that, up to now, guests who have stayed there in quiet periods have found it rather too quiet and have often asked to move into Spoleto for a bit of life. If you are on your own, while you are perfectly safe, it can be a bit much to be in a huge detached villa, on your own, or, almost on your own, especially at night time. So, we decided that if there was an occasion for our chef to use the restaurant for local events, by appointment only, then, we thought that it would bring a bit of welcome life to the villa in such a quiet environment!!!

Indeed, when the above guests arrived, we waited for the usual phone-call to ask if we had anything available in town. And, when we didn't receive such a phone-call, we believed that maybe the fact we had provided the possibility of "more life" at Villa Marianna had done the trick !!

Certainly, in this case, we were guilty of a total error of judgement.

Perfect Home Base

  • 5 out of 5
We used this beautiful villa as a home base while we explored Umbria and Tuscanny. While at the Villa we were able to relax poolside or on the patio and enjoy the incredible views. Boy, can Leonardo cook. Relax and let him do all the work, we had a great dinner. We have friends planning a family reunion and have recommended they contact Norma to plan a fabulous vacation.

Wunderschöner Urlaub

  • 4 out of 5
Wir waren im Sommer 2009 für 2 Wochen als größere Gruppe von 17 Leuten in der Villa Marianna und belegten insgesamt 3 Appartments. Es war für uns alle eine wunderschöne, erholsame Zeit. Die Anfahrt zur Villa, ca. 20 Minuten mit dem Auto hoch durch die Berge war sehr gut zu fahren und schon hier wurde man verwöhnt mit einer sehr schönen Landschaft. Einmal in der Villa Marianna angekommen wollten wir alle gar nicht mehr weg. Wir liebten den grandiosen Ausblick ins weite Land, frühstückten morgens draussen mal an diesem, mal an jenem Plätzchen und plantschten dann in dem wirklich sehr großen und sauberen Pool. Die Appartments waren alle gut ausgestattet, wenn wir etwas zusätzliches brauchten waren Norma oder Laurie, die beide sehr sehr nett sind, immer sofort zur Stelle. Wir hoffen, dass wir einmal wieder Urlaub in der Villa Marianna machen können....vielleicht mieten wir ja dann das ganze Haus......

Owner's Response: Our reviewer said that next time, her party would like to occupy the whole house. Villa Marianna contains 5 self-catering apartments. The largest is APT A with a stunning terrace and the smallest is APT E with a fantastic patio area. Our reviewer stayed in APTs B, C + D.

Villa Marianna also has its own "cucina contadino" and a private chef, who prepares lunches and dinners (with unlimited top quality house wine!), by order, in the sensationally beautiful grounds for all our guests and at incredibly reasonable rates.

And, we now have our own animals in the adjacent field eg pygmy ponies and hens for the children to play with.

I translated this review, using Babelfish :

During the summer of 2009, a group of 17 of us spent 2 weeks in 3 of the apartments in Villa Marianna-Manor House. Everything was beautiful : the drive through the mountains to Villa Marianna was easy and the landscape all around, from beginning to end, was beautiful.

Once we arrived at Villa Marianna, we never wanted to leave. We loved the magnificent views that disappeared into the distance. We enjoyed breakfasts each day al fresco. We loved the very large and clean pool.

All the apartments were well equipped. However, if we asked for anything in addition, it was supplied instantly by Norma or Laurie, who are both very, very nice.

We hope to return to Villa Marianna one day. And, then, we are hoping to rent the whole house.

Villa Marianna, Belgian visitors july 2009

  • 5 out of 5
We (group of 13 people) have rented Villa Marianna , apts B,C and D for 14 days in July 2009. We have had the most fabulous holiday. The description of the Villa appears to be as mentioned on the web : the apts are large enough for the nr of people indicated, the villa has indeed recently been renovated, it is clean and more then sufficiently equipped for 6 people per apt.. Our hosts Laurie and Norma are the most charming people, not obtrusive but there, if you should need them. The view from the terras could easily come out of a movie. We could witness the most beautiful sun dawn every night again. The Swimming pool could perhaps be a little bit difficult to reach for people with a handicap as it is situated +/- 50 m below the villa and requires a small climb when returning, but is also extremely well equipped with chairs and was during our stay, maintained every day. There are indeed a lot of places to visit in the neighbourhood and even a visit to Roma by train belongs to the possibilities.
I can give only one advice : don't think twice, book !

Owner's Response: It is true that it takes a few minutes to walk up the path back to Villa Marianna. This is because the pool is part of a larger campus area with gazebos on a large sandy "beach", equipped with swings, a climbing frame and a slide for young children. However, those of you who have mobility problems or who are staying at Vista Del Mondo, please note that you can drive directly to the pool. And, there are toilet facilities next to the pool !

A romantic, mountain retreat, where there is so much space that guests can do what they like, without feeling inhibited. Quiet nooks and crannies for lovers, wide open sandy areas for children, spacious patio areas for dining alfresco, endless pilgrim trails for walkers and cyclists, heavenly views, bird-song, a huge pool for family gatherings, local restaurants and, proximity to the Umbrian 'hot-spots' ....Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Spello, Casteluccio, Norcia, Trevi, Montefalco, all within a 30 min - 1 hour drive; and, Rome, a mere 1.15 mins by train or car from Spoleto, just 7 miles away, via the quiet Giro D'Italia route, a spectacularly beautiful country road. And, while exploring Umbria is a must for most, if you tear yourselves away from this mind-blowingly beautiful and historic villa in the hills above Bazzano, the buzzy, fairy-tale city of Spoleto will satiate a yearning for the bright lights with shops, bars, restaurants and churches, amidst its arched, cobbled streets.

Other Activities: Wine-tasting, truffle trails, antiquing, olive oil tasting, museums, churches

Large sandy area next to pool has a small collection of children's swings, climbing frames + slides. Speciality lunches offered between June and Sept, made up of our own fresh and seasonal produce - umlimited wine. Under the trees in a balmy, dappled sunshine, spoil yourselves !! All our guests can use the large pool . However, usually, the pool is quiet and, at times empty !
