About the property

An old farmhouse among olive groves and lavender

A former rectory in 1600 which unites within its walls the silence and the secrets of everyday life peasant. To comply with its spirit any radical intervention upset the building: so the past can live in harmony with the modern needs. In attics, where once gathered supplies for the winter, there are now bedrooms framed by small windows: small pictures that they find between patches of olive and cypress walls of Perugia. In the distance Mount Subasio Assisi with its rich history and spirituality. Annexed there is a chapel (1659) dedicated to the Annunciation: its belfry vigil discreetly on the house and the garden of fragrant lavender and herbs.

Rustic charm in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 4 children at The Olivella for just over a fortnight and found both the property and region to exceed expectations. Having visited Italy on numerous occasions previously, the fact that we could get to the airport at Perugia in around 20 minutes yet feel we were hours away really added to the location of this property. More than that, Perugia is around 10mins away with plenty of good restaurants and sights along with many charming towns and villages. We visited Florence, Assisi and Rome during our stay - all within a drive away. Piergiorgio was the perfect host and we look forward to visiting again.

Beautiful historic villa in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in Piergiorgio's villa. We were met by Piergiorgio and his mother, they were very welcoming and could not have been more helpful throughout our stay. The villa is in a perfect location for visiting Umbria's top attractions.

The garden is stunning, a perfect place to relax. The villa itself is authentic and filled with antiques and original features. Such a unique and interesting place to stay! We would highly recommend it and would return.

Une très belle maison vivante et qui raconte une histoire. Jardin immense et splendide.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux fabuleuses semaines dans la magnifique maison de Piergiorgio. Les mots ne pourront pas rendre hommage à sa gentillesse et générosité, ainsi qu'à la beauté des lieux. La maison est très spacieuse et vivante, avec son ameublement et sa décoration très choisie. Elle est pleine de recoins, de chambres, de salons, de couloirs, et chaque espace raconte une nouvelle histoire. Nous étions comme "à la maison". Le jardin est le paradis terrestre: immense, majestueux, avec ses oliviers, figuiers, pruniers, citronniers, orangers, avec son beau potager aux senteurs de lavande, sauge, romarin, laurier, origan, immortelle. La piscine est parfaite, à l'eau claire et propre, avec une belle vue de tout part. Tout a été parfait pendant notre séjour, nous serions encore restés une bonne semaine, afin de profiter de la maison et de cette splendide et riche région qui est l'Ombrie. Nous avons aussi eu la chance de connaitre Monsieur Dante, une très belle personne, discrète, qui s'occupe de la maison lorsqu'il est nécessaire. Voici quatre jours que nous sommes de retour chez nous, mais notre coeur est resté en Ombrie, où il fait bon vivre et où les gens sont adorables.

A very special house and garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a five-night stay in the old house and it became an important part of our vacation in Umbria. The several hundred years were always present in the different rooms, many with stone floor and portraits on the walls. It was like living in a museum. Also, someone with a very artistic talent (perhaps Piergiorgios mother?) had collected things in nice arrangements everywhere you looked. This is not a place for modern luxury but for someone who wants to experience old times. We stayed in the house in the beginning of April and the house was a bit chilly in some rooms despite heaters, the house is probably perfect in May and summer. We felt very welcomed by Piergiorgio and his mother. The garden and views were wonderful as well. We will talk about this special house for years!

Wunderbarer Ort zur Entspannung

  • 5 of 5

Der Gastgeber Piergiorgio und seine Mutter haben uns herzlich empfangen und waren überaus hilfsbereit und entgegenkommend.

Das Haus ist einfach wunderbar! Das historische Gebäude wurde mit viel Geschmack und Bewußstein renoviert und ist fantastisch eingerichtet. Es ist äußerst komfortabel, vor allem die Küche ist hervorragend ausgestattet.

Auch der Garten und der Pool bieten viele verschiedene Orte zum ausruhen aber auch zu anderen Beschäftigungen. Vor allem der Blick auf die umbrische Landschaft mit Perugia und Assisi ist einfach nur atemberaubend!

Sehr positiv ist zu erwähnen, dass obwohl man nur 10 Minuten nach Perugia und 5 Minuten zum nächsten Supermarkt braucht, man den Eindruck hat völlig privat auf dem Land zu wohnen.

Absolut empfehlenswert! Wir werden sicher wiederkommen!

Seghr stilvolles gepflegtes altes Steinhaus vor den Toren Perugias mit sehr schönem Garten

  • 4 of 5

Sehr nette Einweisung durch den Vermieter, seine Mutter und die Nachbarin, die auch bei Problemen zur Verfügung steht. Der Gärtner (Dante) kümmert sich um den Pool, ist gleichfalls sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Haus liegt auf einem Hügel mit sehr schöner Aussicht nach Assisi. Super wäre es, wenn irgendwann eine Waschmaschine angeschafft würde, denn wenn man mit fünf oder sechs Personen zwei Wochen Urlaub macht, fällt einfach Wäsche an, v.a. wenn es einmal nicht ganz so schönes Wetter ist und man in der Umgebung wandert. Ansonsten ist das Haus liebevoll eingerichtet, zum Teil mit sehr stilvollen Möbeln und Geschirr, sodass man sich in das 19 Jh. zurück versetzt fühlt... ein Erlebnis gerade für kulturbegeisterte Italienreisende, zumal Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Gubbio usw. jeweils sehr gut mit dem Auto erreichbar sind.
