Villa St Croce, our rental holiday home contained within our Azienda Agricola, where we produce our own extra virgin olive oil and our Corvento red wine. The modern villa, which is equipped to the highest standard, is surrounded by olive groves and sits secluded upon its own hill which encompasses magnificent views of the Apennine Mountains, the religious town of Assisi and the medieval vibrant university town of Perugia.

From this vantage point one can truly experience all the facilities the Villa has to offer, from walks through the olive groves, games of tennis in the morning sun, swims in the pool, to early evening massages in the whirlpool followed by drinks under the pergola whilst watching the sun set below Mount Tezio.

Despite its secluded hill top location, St Croce is extremely conveniently situated to access local amenities and to explore the many cultural and historic places of interest in Umbria.

It is our simple objective to provide our guests with a wonderful experience.

About Sabine and Oliver Jackson

Married in Perugia in 2007, we have 3 young children. We live close enough to the Villa for any assistance but far enough away so not as to disturb!

Of course we can also provide valuable tips for families with children.

Sabine and Oliver Jackson purchased this villa in 2010

Why Sabine and Oliver Jackson chose Perugia

We found the perfect location... stunning views, completely private, totally peaceful and yet still close to all that Umbria and beyond can offer.

What makes this villa unique

Your OWN Umbrian Hill all for yourselves, with all the creature comforts of home including AC throughout the Villa - Truly the perfect holiday location AND ALL for yourself...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Es war einmalig schön. Wir hatten vor, so viel zu besichtigen, aber wir waren unter dem Charme der Villa und haben sie nur selten verlassen. Die Kinder waren natürlich überfroh und haben sich köstlich ausgetobt. Am liebsten würden wir diese Villa gar nicht verlassen!

Wir werden sie auf keinen Fall vergessen!

Ne anche la grande gentilezza di Oli e Sabine!

Liebe Grüße,
Aug 2011

We absolutely loved the house! The hardest part was leaving. Sabine and Oliver were fantastic hosts and went out of their way to ensure our stay was enjoyable. We plan to come back again.

Magical hilltop villa

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Villa St. Croce and had an amazing, perfect week there. The house is beautiful and suited our group of 8 in every way. The grounds are spectacular.....we have stayed in many places in Tuscany and Umbria but none lovelier than this. Silvia was responsive and helpful. Truly it is impossible to find any fault with the entire experience.

Paradise on an Umbrian hillside

  • 5 of 5

Everythign was prefect. The facilites are well appointed with great style. The rooms were large and comfortable and the bathrooms gorgeous. The grounds are rich with vegetation and herbs and the pool affords a relaxing swim overlooking the countryside. The owners are welcoming and very helpful. The two cooks (Leny & Leny) make wonderful meals which create memories. We woudl go back in the blink of an eye.

Live Like a Celebrity

  • 5 of 5

The week we spent at Villa St. Croce was magical. Our group of 9 found this totally updated and sophisticated home to have everything we could imagine. It is secluded, sitting on top of a hill with amazing views and total quiet. We spent each morning enjoying the grounds, each afternoon exploring a different Umbrian town and each evening being pampered by the amazing meals prepared by the private chef recommended by Oliver and Sabine. Leny created the most delicious offerings that we had during our entire trip to Italy and all less expensive than if we tried to drag 9 people out to a restaurant...and much more relaxing!

Stop looking further and choose Villa St. Croce - you will be so thankful that you did! It quite simply can't get better than this! Thank you Oli and Sabine for creating this magical oasis.

Amazing Umbrian Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Umbria and what an amazing region to visit. Villa St Croce is the perfect place to stay a large family or several smaller families (We were 12 total with 6 adults and 6 children). The pictures on the website, which are amazing, do not even do the place justice when you see it in real life. The house, the property, the landscaping, the pool and the scenery are all top notch.

Oli and Sabine met us in town off the highway to show us how to get to the house which is on top of a private hill behind a closed gate, which was super nice. Our initial impression was this was too good to be true. The house was in immaculate condition and ready for our stay. We had asked Leny to cook some meals and when we arrived, it was almost 6pm, dinner was ready.

The Villa is in a perfect location for day trips throughout Umbria. We visited Norcia, Gubbio, Siena, Assisi, Orvieto and Perugia. All beautiful cities and within an hour drive of the Villa. And we always looked forward to our return to the house to relax by the gorgeous pool in the afternoons.

Oli and Sabine had excellent recommendations for restaurants in all of the cities that we visited. We even had a gourmet chef come in one night to cook dinner for our entire group and this was fantastic.

If planning to trip to Italy and Umbria I would strongly recommend that you consider Villa St Croce, you will most definitely NOT be disappointed with your choice.

We enjoyed life to the full !!!

  • 5 of 5

Together with our friends/three other families we enjoyed one oft he most beautiful holidays ever!!

We loved to live in the picturesque surrounding area of Perugia and Assisi, amongst scenery of unparalleled beauty. Santa Croce with its spacious luxurious areas and unique architecture is offering spectacular views of the famous landscape and the garden of olive trees around - the children loved to stay there and still remember their adventures;-)!

The owners Sabine and Oliver are a very friendly couple and they offer a unique combination of tradition, authentic hospitality and luxury with all comforts and services oft he highest standards – and more than this! -

We enjoyed life to the full!!
