STUNNING UMBRIAN VILLA WITH16M ( 50FT POOL )

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Città di Castello - The Villa Solferino

Luxury accommodation sleeps ten

The Villa Solferino sits perched on a south east facing hill in an incredibly panoramic position overlooking the glorious Umbrian countryside. The gated villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden and grounds that lead down to four acres of olive groves and vineyard, ensuring privacy. The new 50ft swimming pool is nestled on a terrace amongst olive trees in a truly amazing setting.

The house sleeps 10, comprising of 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living rooms ,drawing room, dinning room, kitchen, laundry room and downstairs WC. There is a very large arched portico area leading from the kitchen with a barbecue which is ideal for eating alfresco in the shade from the heat of the day or on a warm evening. There are two open fireplaces , a wood burning stove and gas central heating.

The house is cleaned with a change of bed linen and

bath towels once a week . We can organise a local chef for an evening of your choice who will cook and serve a fantastic

Umbrian /Tuscan meal.

The local town of Citta di Castello has a weekly market and there is a antiques market in the historic centre once a month.

This area is famous for truffles and mushrooms where there are numerous restaurants in the surrounding hills

all serving an excellent selection of the most delicious Umbrian cuisine. Remember that the menu changes with the season in Italy especially in the countryside, so there is always a good surprise!

There is a truffle festival in the autumn when people arrive from all over Italy to taste this delicacy.

A perfect Easter break

  • Review Submitted: 22-Apr-2012

Thankyou for your warm welcome- we really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Villa Solferino. The facilities were perfect for self catering and the kitchen and portico were well equiped.
Very comfortable beds with lovely white Italian linen, and powerful hot
showers.
We explored lots of the local area- visiting fascinating places including Citta di Castello, Arezzo ,Monterchi, Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, Lago Trasimeno and Anghiari.
We recommend the local restaurant pizzeria close by at Lugnano for a friendly welcome and fantastic food.
We are looking forward to bringing friends and family back here soon.

Wow! Villa Solferino was perfect for us.

  • Review Submitted: 22-Apr-2012
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2012
Breathtaking scenery ,up high looking over the rolling country side.. watching the spring colours emerge daily was a real treat.We were surrounded with figs and vines and had a pair of charming resident Hoopoes visit us each morning.We loved sitting in the portico in the evenings with the fire crackling sampling the local food and wine as the sun set over the Appenines.
We enjoyed having our breakfast on the terrace by the pool under the great oak tree. The interior of the villa is classic ,yet modern and we had everything we needed.
Thankyou for a memorable stay.

"We've had a fantastic two weeks at Villa Solferino - it has been wonderful
waking up every morning to that view! The kids have loved exploring the
grounds ,the pool, and we have enjoyed the peaceful souroundings and
stunning vistas. The chef was an added bonus -we leave Italy a little heavier than when we arrived!"
