About the property

Our lovingly-built villa, Casa Gianni, is situated on its own extensive site surrounded by olive trees and with a 10mx5m private swimming pool. It overlooks the little village of Macchie and is ten minutes drive from the bustling, historical town of Amelia. The villa has an outside shaded terrace beside the pool but also plenty of room for sunbathing and sun lounging around the pool. The villa is large and comfortable with all modern conveniences including a well stocked supply cupboard, appliances, and, of course, two large, well-filled book cases! Restored and extended by local Umbrian artisanal builders, it is built to the highest specifications with individual touches like stunning exposed beams in most of the rooms. It has rooms with air-conditioning in summer and excellent heating in winter. The villa looks out over the village of Macchie and on south towards the town of Amelia. It is accessed down a private roadway through a small olive grove. As it is on its own land, we have plenty of parking (for up to three cars). We have three double bedrooms (two ensuite and one beside the main family bathroom) and a small baby or toddler room. With the pool and terrace we have sun loungers, a barbeque and access to a wonderful local chef who will come to the villa to cook for you and your family. Our salone or living room has an open wood-burning fire place with a back boiler to heat the house in winter.

About Ciara O'Brien

We are from Ireland but we fell in love with Italy and Umbria in the 1990s. We bought our site in 2004 as we had good friends living nearby (still do!). We built the house with the help of local builders and completed the project in 2008. We currently live in Brussels with our three little boys and get to spend time at the villa as often as possible!

Ciara O'Brien purchased this villa in 2004

Why Ciara O'Brien chose Amelia

Macchie and the area around Amelia is both historic and beautiful but relatively little known and not at all crowded - so unspoiled. Nonetheless it has all the beauty of the Umbrian hills, the excellent restaurantsm vineyards and local shops to buy locally produced food stuffs and wine, great museums, walking paths and trekking, sports and other recreation all nearby. Macchie is a tiny village but it has its own local shop with many items of local produce (hams, cheeses etc) and even a five star restaurant at the edge of the village! If you stay in Casa Gianni, you can laze by the pool all day or go and explore the surrounding villages and towns in very short journeys. Day trips to Rome are very feasible with a 40 minute train journey from nearby Orte.

What makes this villa unique

The privacy is great - there is noone living within about 500 metres of the house. The views are also lovely and it is very peaceful to sit on the terrace and look over the village which is close enough but just far away to ensure the continued privacy of the property! We love the pool also which is very much the centrepiece of the property,

Vacances italiennes au calme dans un village haut perché de Ombrie!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 jours à la casa Gianna afin de nous balader et visiter l'Ombrie et la Toscane. Nous ne regrettons pas ce choix.

La maison est très agréable et pratique, avec en particulier une belle piscine! Elle est située au sud de l'Ombrie avec ses collines verdoyantes. Le village le plus proche (Amelia) est tout à fait typique et pittoresque. Nous avons bien profité du calme de notre casa à Macchie et de sa piscine pour ensuite sillonner la région et affronter la foule des touristes à Orvieto, Rome, Assise, Pérouse et Sienne,Terni, Narni, la cascade Marmore etc. Une maison idéale pour 15 jours, quand on veut prendre le temps de souffler et se reposer tout ayant le temps de prendre sa voiture pour rayonner dans la région. Bref, à recommander pour ceux qui ont le temps de descendre un peu plus bas que la Toscane et sortir un peu des sentiers battus!
