The very special ‘Villa Olivia’ is a charming 16th Century stone farmhouse, restored in the traditional Umbrian style. Set peacefully on rolling slopes amidst olive groves and vineyards, just a couple of minute's drive from the beautiful medieval hilltop town of Montefalco, Villa Olivia a magical spot perfect for an idyllic Umbrian holiday. There are two double bedrooms each with a private bathroom, a sunny living area, a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. The living area can accomodate two people in single beds and access to a separate bathroom with shower. There's a good sized pool surrounded by a beautiful garden full of olive trees and aromatic Italian plants, with great views over the Montefalco countryside. There are a number of shady spots for al fresco dining or an evening aperitivo. Not far away are any number of local wineries, restaurants and bars, and it's a perfect base for visiting all the most famous Umbrian towns such as Perugia, Spoleto, Assisi, and Norcia.
The pool, measuring 7 x 3 metres, maintains a warm temperature as it receives the sun all day. It has a depth of between 1.20 metres at it's shallowest and 1.80 metres at it's deepest. Because the pool is not fenced within the property, it is not suitable for toddlers.
Villa Olivia is superbly located in the golden triangle of Umbria, only 3 km from the historic centre of Montefalco. Heavy with medieval atmosphere, Montefalco is undoubtedly one of Umbria’s finest examples of a hill top town. Seeped with an artistic heritage, its maze of tiny cobbled streets open onto an impressive piazza. This beautiful town is small enough to retain a feeling of intimacy, but big enough to provide good amenities such as a bank, grocery stores, a hairdresser and some excellent local restaurants and wine bars. Montefalco is well located for exploring much of Umbria and Tuscany. The town is often referred to in Italian as ‘La Ringhiera dell’Umbria’, or ‘the balcony of Umbria’ in English. It sits on a solitary hill overlooking the mountain-flanked Vale of Spoleto, with fantastic 360 degree views of the nearby towns from Perugia to Assisi/Spello, Bevagna, Foligno, Trevi, and Spoleto. The surrounding countryside is perfect for sightseeing, walking or cycling. Many of the Tuscan towns such as Siena, Arezzo, and Montepulciano make good day trips.
