Favola Umbra is a huge property where there are two villas and a small cottage, old houses original 18th century recently restored with passion and attention to the preservation of the ancient original details and equipped with all the modern technological benefits, leaving intact the testimonies of the ancient stone farmhouses in the Umbrian countryside.
The villas can be rented separately or totally thanks to the presence of luxury separated apartments. You can see them on our website www.favolaumbra.it.
The 'Voce degli Angeli' Villa accommodates 12 people and is divided in two apartments, "Voce degli Angeli First" and "Voce of Angeli Ground".
The "Favola" Villa accommodates 17 people and is divided in four apartments (two on garden floor: "Dolce Vita" and "Colombe" and two upstairs: "Conviviale," and "Piccolo Sogno" ).
The "Capannina" cottage accommodates 4 people.
In the gardens surrounding the villas are arranged exclusive spaces, equipped with wrought iron tables and umbrellas to take meals outdoors. You can immerse yourselves in a huge area in the middle of nature with 60 hectares of privately owned land. The vast gardens, the park and walks in our woods allow individuals to enjoy a holiday in complete freedom from stress.
The large gardens all around the villas, the space BBQ facilities, a fitness trail, bicycles available free with hiking trails on the property, the slight hill in the forest that is home to botanical paths to the discovery of various species typical of woodland, and still always within the property, 2 lakes for sportfishing exclusively reserved to our guests .
Large swimming pool and solarium.
All around peace and quiet, panoramic views of the countryside and the two small medieval villages next to us: Montepetriolo and Panicale.
We stayed for a week in August at Favola Umbra for an extended-family reunion. We were 19 adults and 7 kids aged 1 to 7. We rented the entire property. All the participants loved the place, which greatly contributed to the success of the reunion.
Laila, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating throughout the rental process. She was very prompt in all her correspondence, and fulfilled all our special requests (cribs, highchairs, etc.).
Sara, the property manager, was there every day, throughout the day, and made sure we are happy.
The rooms were very comfortable and the kitchens well equipped. In the main apartment we were able to cook for, and seat the entire party of 26!
The grounds are marvelous and well taken care of. Lots of grass, secluded and shaded seating areas, a playground for the kids (swings, slide, ping-pong, basketball, etc.). The property is very large, includes two swimming pools which got extensive usage, two ponds for fishing, etc. A highlight for the kids was picking fresh vegetables (tomatoes, corn, etc.) and fruits and eating them.
A 10 minute drive away are a bakery (fresh bread and pastries every morning ...) grocery store and other shops.
In summary, a great place for just a restful vacation, or as a base for touring the surrounding Umbria - most of which is no more than an hour or two of a drive. Renting the entire property (as we did) or only part of it (what are called apartments) is highly recommended.
Absolutely gorgeous place, immaculately kept, nicely decorated lovely grounds, and fantastic, friendly, helpful people. There was always some one on hand to advise us about the best places to go for food or a trip out. Its also in the heart of Umbria and easy to get to all of those beautiful historic towns. I cant recommend it highly enough.
It's hard to recommend this place enough. We've been spending summer vacations in Italy for the past 10 years and this is by far the best place we've been to. Highlights: 1. Location - it's close to Perugia and roads leading to different parts of Umbria. 2. Property - it is beatiful and so well maintained! Apartments are very nice, extra care was taken when renovating them and it shows in many details. Comfortable beds, nice kitchen equipment are a great addition to proper mosquito nets in EVERY window and a working AC. Outside - every flower is taken care of! Large swimming pool is always supervised, with a great selection of sunbeds and chairs, and a lot of shade under plants. 3. People - hats off to Laila, Mario and everone whom we met there. It was a great pleasure meeting you :-) We've spent a wonderful week there and we are certain we will be coming back in the years to come.

Favola Umbra was the perfect location for our family of six, including my husband, college age children and elderly parents! First and foremost, the property owners, Laila, Mario, Daniela, and Raymondo, as well as property assistant, Auriana, could not have been more gracious in every way. All of them treated us as though we had been family friends for a lifetime. When we arrived, our kitchen was stocked with all kinds of items (including their own Favola Umbra Olive Oil) needed for supper and breakfast, so we didn't have to head right out to a grocery market or restaurant. Several evenings upon our return from day trips, Auriana called a local restaurant to deliver a meal for us. Additionally, they setup a wonderful cooking lesson in Daniella's own kitchen with a fabulous chef. Thoughtfully, Raymondo and Auriana translated for us during the lesson. Our traditional Umbrian meal was accompanied by their own Rossi family wine. Secondly, our three bedroom, Conviviale apartment was beautifully restored, maintaining both the original character of the property, but also every modern amenity. The views from every window seemed to come from an Italian guidebook. The grounds included a large and lovely pool with areas for sun and shade, providing an opportunity to visit with the Rossi family and other guests or to simply relax and read. Throughout the property were numerous seating areas with tables and chairs for dining or relaxing among the natural beauty surrounded by lakes, fruit trees, gardens and sunflower fields in the background. Thirdly, it was an easy drive to many historic and quaint towns, including Assisi, Gubbio, Pane and Perugia. These short road trips provided an opportunity to visit many excellent restaurants, a winery, an antique market, a chocolate factory, and more....all within less than an hour. Favola Umbra was the idyllic location for a week's stay in the middle of our family vacation. It was an easy drive from Rome and the easy A1 route even provided an opportunity to stop off at Orvieto as we headed toward Favola Umbra. Upon our departure, the drive to Florence was just as convenient. We hope to return to Favola Umbra in the future with other members of our extended family.
Having been to Tuscany on numerous occasions, we decided to try Umbria for a change and were not disappointed. Favola Umbra is charming, and will only get better as Leila and Daniela get more experienced. They were incredibly welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay a pleasurable one. Lovely old buildings, which have been sympathetically restored and updated to a very high standard. The pool is one of the best we have ever encountered in a villa/apartment holiday.
Favourite restaurant close by was Caffe Lillotatini in Panicale but you would be advised to book.
Lots of places to visit in the area. However, if you don't want to move from the villa/apartment there is lots to keep you entertained, including a fantastic BBQ area and pizza oven.
By a private avenue, out of the main street, you can see the big ancient gate of the private property.(remote controlled entrance)
