PRIVATE STRUCTURE. On a west-facing hill, the red sunset irradiates the magnificent garden and lights up Casale delle Lavande, a delightful house of uncommon charm immersed in the heart of the typical Umbrian countryside. The skyline seen from here is unmatched: from the windows, framing views of extraordinary beauty, and from the infinity pool, your gaze wanders across the plain that stretches from the garden right up to alluring Todi. The architecture of this beautiful home, with all amenities and mod cons, is inspired by that of the traditional rural houses clad in sandstone and with large use of salvaged wood for the ceilings and oak planks for the warm floors. The bright spacious rooms are enriched by a fine collection of top quality furniture in Provençal style, with country chic details, blending in well with the simple natural shades of the upholstery and walls. The centre of the house is the spacious living room, an open-plan area with a super-equipped kitchen that extends outside to a wide pergola surrounded by flowers where guests can experience the peaceful atmosphere of the Umbrian countryside. The house is a good departure point for visiting the many places of natural, artistic and religious interest in the area. Todi, with its natural landscapes, prestigious architecture, rich culture and old traditions, is just 10 minutes from the property, but also within easy reach are the well-known towns of central Italy: Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto. The excellent road links, as well, guarantee easy travel to the neighbouring regions of Tuscany and Lazio.
The property takes full advantage of the hilly sloping terrain, spread over three floors and with access to the garden from the basement as well. The main door on the ground floor goes into the living area with large sitting room, dining area and kitchen, with centre island, with direct access out to the porch and pergola. A double bedroom with queen-size bed (with French window leading out to a terrace) and ensuite bathroom with shower complete the ground floor. The marble staircase at the entrance leads up to the top floor and down to the basement. The top floor consists of a double bedroom with an amazing panorama and bathtub in view and of a private bathroom with shower. Going down to the basement, which has a pleasant temperature even during the hottest summer days, you come to a billiard room, connected to a TV room (with video projector), a laundry room and a guest bathroom. From here, along a short corridor, you come to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, a twin bedroom with private bathroom with shower and whirlpool bath connected by a sliding door to another twin bedroom (also with independent access). The bedrooms have large French windows leading out to the garden at the pool level.
The house is surrounded by a 5000 sq m, completely fenced-in park with a parking area. The garden is abloom with many types of flowers that alternate in the well-maintained lawn areas around the house and in the pool area, with lavender the protaganist everywhere. From the gate a row of young cypresses flanks the driveway up to the house. Climbing wisteria and jasmine, bushes of Mediterranean herbs and typical olive trees line the dry-stone walls and internal paths. Under the large porch with direct access from the kitchen through the French window, an area has been set up for alfresco dining, complete with built-in barbecue and sink, and a comfortable seating area. A romantic pergola covered with climbing wisteria in front of the sitting room French window contains a panoramic corner, furnished with sofas and armchairs, where guests can sit and relax.
Open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October, the large infinity pool lies on the lower terrace of the property, accessible from the house down a flight of steps bordered by a large wall covered in lavender bushes. In front is a view over the countryside and of Todi, offering beautiful sunsets. The rectangular pool, with travertine border and PVC lining, has large steps into the water on one side. It measures 10 x18m with the depth varying from 1.50 m to 2.5 m. The purification system is chlorine. The sunbathing area runs along the perimeter of the pool, paved in travertine, and in the surrounding lawn area and is provided with sunbeds, deckchairs, a hammock under a gazebo and a pergola covered in wisteria, ensuring peaceful, shady relaxation. The pool has internal lights and a cold-water shower.
