Peaceful and secluded hideaway

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This secluded hideaway is ideal for those wanting to enjoy some peace and quiet and get away from it all. A 15th century restored stone house set amongst the olive groves. Standing 485 metres above sea level with 180° panoramic view over the Valle Umbra which reaches from Perugia in the north to Spoleto in the south.

The house was fully restored in 2006 and has all modern conveniences such as underfloor heating, solar panels, wet room shower, wi-fi, dishwasher, washing machine and large fridge freezer. The kitchen is well equipped and boasts a large dining table for entertaining. The lounge has exposed chestnut beams, high ceilings and comfortable seating. Both have spectacular views. The 2 ample, tranquil double bedrooms are downstairs so are cool in summer and both have doors leading straight out onto the garden.

Outside there is a shady dining area for lunches al fresco, and sun loungers for relaxing with a good book. For the evenings there is a BBQ area at the front on the house from which to enjoy a glass of local Montefalco wine and enjoy the sun setting over the other side of the valley.

The local town of Trevi is 10 minutes away by car and boasts a good selection of restaurants, a pizzeria with outside eating in the summer, two bars and a number of convenience stores. The town also has a large civic swimming pool with cafe which is open throughout the summer. Also 10 minutes away is a shopping mall with a large supermarket and other outlets.

For those wanting some nightlife then Foligno is well worth a visit. It has a very good bar scene and a number of good restaurants.

The house is an ideal base from which to visit the many stunning towns of Umbria. From Assisi to Montefalco, Foligno to Spello. There are many walking trails including the the San Francescan way which passes below the house.

There are good train links to Rome and Florence both of which are approximately an hour and a half traveling time.

Art & Privacy on a wonderful hill in Umbria

  • 4 of 5

It was love at first site. Casa Margherita sits tucked away between the olive trees and once you step inside it's am oasis of art, design and vintage in a wonderfully harmonious blend. Yet the house has all you need, from super beds to a lovely bathroom and a kitchen with everything a chef needs. We loved it so much we booked a second stay right away. Super!

Fabulous house in amazing area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Margherita for a week in July. Not long enough! Access to the property is a little bit hairy, down an unmade road in a tiny hamlet, but you get used to that pretty quickly. The house is beautifully done out, with everything you would need. There’s WiFi, an excellent selection of books, CDs and DVDs if you should want them. We didn’t turn the TV on. We spent our time exploring the area. Trevi, a short drive away, is a wonderful hill town, lots of alleys and hidden treasures to explore. Great restaurants too. We loved Caffe Roma on Piazza Mazzini for coffee, spritz and gelato.

I hope we can return to the house and the area.

Comfortable and Spacious Stone House in an Olive Grove

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this house. The views from the back windows down the hill and onto Trevi are extraordinary, like framed paintings. The stone house is roomy, beautifully renovated, and artistically and eclectically decorated.

The mattress was extremely comfortable in the main bedroom. We had no need of air conditioning in June. As promised, the downstairs stayed cold--enough so that a quilt was needed at night. The kitchen was great for cooking. Great bathroom with a tub, also.

We loved the isolation and peacefulness of the location. There are no neighboring dwellings in sight. The patio area in the back of the house is a wonderful place to relax or have a meal. We also visited the surrounding hill towns--Assisi, Spoleto, Perugia (terrific meal at al mangiar bene and the gelato at Gambrinus).

As this is a newer property, I'll mention a couple of things that might be helpful to renters. The house is located down a stretch of bumpy dirt road; it wasn't a problem to drive in our smallish rental car. The seclusion means that the house is initially a bit hard to navigate to and from. After being escorted to the property on the first day, we couldn't at first have found our way out and back again without GPS or Google maps. After a day, you'll have all of the roads figured out and getting around will seem easy, but I'd suggest making sure you have access to a map or GPS for the first couple of trips.

Very responsive owners.

Highly recommended!

Très belle location à Manciano

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances à la Casa Margherita. La vue est exceptionnelle sur la terrasse à toute heure de la journée. La maison a beaucoup de cachet, est très bien équipée (lecteur DVD, CD, très bonne literie, chambres fraîches, décoration personnalisée et intéressante). Le jardin et la terrasse à l'ombre permettent de se reposer en toute quiétude.

La région, riche en patrimoine culturel et humain, est très accueillante. Trévi, Montefalco, Pietrarossa, Spello et plus loin Assise et Pérugia sont bien sûr des incontournables!

Est il nécessaire d'évoquer la cuisine italienne !!! Un régal !!!

Le seul problème que nous ayons rencontré fut le chemin pour accéder à la maison. Si on possède un véhicule adapté, il est facile de rouler sur un chemin de terre non stabilisé mais suite aux quelques pluies d'orage, le chemin était très dégradé voire dangereux et nous avons été contraints de laisser notre véhicule au début du chemin.

Heureusement, cela n'a pas gâché nos vacances !!!

Nous recommandons vivement ce gîte pour sa qualité.

There are number of good restaurants in Monefalco such as L'Alcamista, Il Coccorone and the Locanda del Teatro. There are also a number of linen shops with an excellent selection of Umbrian linen.

Bevagna - 12km - 32 mins

The small walled town of Bevagna is a little deiight sitting on the plain of the Topino river not far from Foligno. It also serves as a nice break from the numerous hilltop towns of Umbria as it is on the flat. Piazza Silvestri is a delightful little piazza home to two of Umbria’s loveliest Romanesque churches. The small, serious San Silvestro and the larger San Michele Archangelo. In June Bevagna hosts a wonderful medieval festival–Il Mercato delle Gaite.

Bevagna has a good selection of restaurants.

Not too far further on from Norcia is the magnificent Piano Grande. It is a vast, upland plain, situated above 4,000ft, ringed by mountains.

Orvieto - 58km - 1 hr 30 mins

Worth a visit just to see the cathedral. A 14th masterpiece.
