Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Umbria - Villa Marianna - Rome 1 hour

1, 2 + 3 bedrms/1 + 2 sittg-dng rms/1+ 2 bthrms/terraces/Close to Assisi, Perugi

SEE MY PERSONAL WEBSITE FOR MANY, MANY MORE PHOTOS OF ALL THESE PROPERTIES : www.umbriaholidayrentals.com

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO RESTAURANT AT VILLA MARIANNA - ALL 5 APARTMENTS ARE TOTALLY SELF-CATERING WITH FULLY FITTED KITCHENS. MANY RESTAURANTS IN THE NEARBY HILLS.

Villa Marianna, with a large pool, a fabulous 16C manor house with WiFi in every apt, its rooms large, light and airy.

In an intensely romantic setting, the 5 self-catering apartments are well-spaced from each other : A + C occupy the entire 1st floor, B + D occupy the entire ground floor, each apartment separated by spacious hall-ways, and E in a position on its own, annexed at the end of the house.

Hewn from the rocks, this majestic house looks over the pool and the magnificent, panoramic landscape, embracing monasteries, olive groves, woods, vineyards, fields of poppies, cherry orchards and hill-top villages, furling and unfolding through valleys and across a grand plain towards Assisi.

If you are seeking an intimate experience with Nature, fun and frolics by the pool, within easy reach of “the bright lights” of Spoleto, then, Villa Marianna is for you.

The pool is NOT open to the public and, therefore, is NOT available for those members of the public who use the restaurant. The pool is for the exclusive use of our holiday rental guests only. And, please note to date the pool is often quiet and sometimes empty, the majority of our guests preferring to explore historic sites than to lounge by a pool !

Villa Marianna, if booked as a whole, can sleep 25 persons, easily. Enquire about a generously discounted rate if you wish to book all 5 apartments.

GENERAL INFORMATION :

A Welcome Pack includes wine, pasta, pasta sauce, olive oil, tea, coffee, milk……plus toiletries to start you off.

Our small partnership group, ourselves included, own all the properties that we advertise, about 60 in all, from villas with pools to smart town houses to central city apartments.

Subsequently, we can organise olive oil tasting, wine tasting, chef at home, eating in chef's house, truffle hunting, picnics with a donkey, cheese making, caving, canyoning, rafting, canoeing, horse riding.....anything you like.......all at better rates than you get going through the conventional channels. This is because all the aforementioned activities, except for horse-riding, are offered by our partners to ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime !

For instance, the olive oil of one of our partners (Ciarletti) was blessed by the Pope 2 years ago, after it had won the top prize in Italy. He, amongst other of our partners, offers olive oil tasting, accompanied by a lunch, at his farmhouse.

All our activities are totally authentic, put on by Italians, whose familes go back for centuries and who have been in the truffle, olive oil and wine trade for all of that time.

And, because all the activities we offer are "inhouse" we can undercut all the "professional" businesses, for whom it is their livelihood. Such activities are not our livelihood. Neither are they the livelihood of our partners. We and our partners offer these activities with the aim of enriching your holiday.

AMAZING OFFER !

4 AUTHENTIC ACTIVITIES @ 125 EUROS EACH, TO INCLUDE GROUPS OF UP TO 4 PERSONS STAYING IN THE SAME APARTMENT OR VILLA.

IF YOU BOOK ALL 4 ACTIVITIES, YOUR TOTAL TO PAY IS DISCOUNTED TO 400 EUROS.

The activities are :

1.A visit to Ciarletti oil mill, including lunch and unlimited wine. This famous Italian olive oil was blessed by the current Pope, in recognition of its status as Italy’s No I olive oil.

2.A cookery lesson by a local “celebrity” chef at his restaurant, including lunch and unlimited wine.

3.A meal cooked for you in your home by a local “celebrity” chef, including all the ingredients and unlimited wine.

4.A truffle hunt with a local “celebrity” chef, including a truffle lunch and unlimited wine

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTAKE IN ANY OF THE ABOVE ACTIVITIES, THE COST IS 125 EUROS, TO INCLUDE UP TO 4 PERSONS IN A GROUP. THE COST IS NOT REDUCED IF THERE ARE FEWER THAN 4 PERSONS IN A GROUP. SO, FOR INSTANCE, IF THERE ARE 10 OF YOU WISHING TO PARTAKE IN ONE, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE, THIS WOULD COUNT AS 3 GROUPS.

About Norma Williams

We were retired ! We 'fell' into our holiday rental business by accident. It started as a hobby after someone pleaded with us to rent them our house in San Mamiliano, while we were away.

We now have 2 major partners and between us, we offer up to 50 very diverse and beautiful villas, apartments and pool properties, both in central Spoleto and close by. Please see them all on my personal website, the address of which you will find at the bottom of the HomeAway page of this property.

However, we still do not regard ourselves as 'proper business people' because we care far more about contributing to making our guests' holidays fantastic than we do about making money.

We hope you stay with us !

beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful setting, and the given description is correct, though there are some loose ends (like the cutlery, that does not feed more than six, but this didn't bother our 4 persoen family). What we didn't realize is that the stay of a larger group inevitably effects the atmosphere in and around the house. The property was relatively clean (improvement would help). The old house can be noisy - sound travels through the hall. A herd of sheep has its home nearby, which means a truly rural setting, incluing romantic sounds, but also bugs and smells that come with the herd. Overall we had a very pleasant stay. Hope our comments help you improve where possible!

Perfect for Our Family Reunion of 10

  • 5 of 5

The 17th century (?) farmhouse could not have been more modern. We occupied Apts A & C, each with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. A large, open entryway connected the two apartments which joined and occupied the whole first floor. This provided privacy and allowed us to mingle between the two apartments and share the rooftop patio off of Apt A. Each unit was spacious, private, and well equipped. The adults (6) used three of the bedrooms, the teenager (1) used the fourth bedroom, and the three youngsters slept together in three twin beds assembled in one of the spacious kitchen, living room, dining room spaces. The large pool was appreciated by the youngsters, each an avid swimmer, and Leonardo's meals were simply marvelous. Norma and Laurie make every effort to provide for you, from the timely and detailed correspondence to the welcome package which will take care of a late arrival meal and morning breakfast. The location, about 6 miles outside town, was a relaxing relief for us following a day of sightseeing. After one week we had a unanimous vote to return; a good time was had by all.

June/July 2010

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended party of 12 taking up 3 of the apartments. We all had a fantastic holiday. The setting was beautiful, accommodation of a very high standard & we found Laurie both helpful & charming to chat with. A large part of our enjoyment can be credited to chef Leonardo & his family were always there to not only share with us the fantastic Umbrian culinary experience but where to visit in the area.

Highly recomended.

villa marianna, spoleto

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious and cool, the pool very clean.The best part of the holiday was letting Leonardo and his family cook for us some nights. The food was first class and typically Umbrian, as they are obviously very proud of their culture. The wine was ad lib and Daniellas pizzas are a must. Leonardo also took us to local vineyards and a pecorini cheese making farm. He and his family made the holiday very special.

Villa Marianna sits nestling in the hills, away from it all, although Spoleto is only a 15 minute drive.Laurie was charming and laid back,no heavy rules & do' s/don' ts.

Casteluccio was our favourite place----- a bit of a hic town in the middle of nowhere.

As a regular France holidaymaker, I am now converted to Italy---the food & people are much better!

A romantic, mountain retreat, where there is so much space that guests can do what they like, without feeling inhibited. Quiet nooks and crannies for lovers, wide open sandy areas for children, spacious patio areas for dining alfresco, endless pilgrim trails for walkers and cyclists, heavenly views, bird-song, a huge pool for family gatherings, local restaurants and, proximity to the Umbrian 'hot-spots' ....Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Spello, Casteluccio, Norcia, Trevi, Montefalco, all within a 30 min - 1 hour drive; and, Rome, a mere 1.15 mins by train or car from Spoleto, just 7 miles away, via the quiet Giro D'Italia route, a spectacularly beautiful country road. And, while exploring Umbria is a must for most, if you tear yourselves away from this mind-blowingly beautiful and historic villa in the hills above Bazzano, the buzzy, fairy-tale city of Spoleto will satiate a yearning for the bright lights with shops, bars, restaurants and churches, amidst its arched, cobbled streets.

Other Activities: Wine-tasting, truffle trails, antiquing, olive oil tasting, museums, churches
