Welcome to the “ Villa Le Brunette “
Perfect romantic retreat …. Utterly charming restored stone built Country House in a secluded setting with private pool, close to an ancient village and within a 20 minute drive of both the magnificent historic Cathedral City of Orvieto and Lake Bolsena, with its’ delightful lakeside villages and clean unspoilt beaches.
Guests at the Villa Le Brunette can enjoy privacy and peace in this tranquil rural location which offers the ultimate escape from busy lives. Set midway between the famous ancient and atmospheric village of Civita Di Bagnoregio and the medieval village of Porano and halfway between Rome and Florence.
This wonderful old property built circa 1800, has been completely restored to a high standard in 2016. It really is a private paradise, set in a pretty natural garden planted with wild flowers and on the borders with mature Oak trees and flowering shrubs. The land slopes gently downhill to the swimming pool area beyond, which attracts the sun all day where you can sunbathe or take a dip in complete privacy.
Externally the Villa features a 360 degree terrace which runs around the entire property and extends the living space to the outdoors. Here our guests can enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets. There are many sun drenched or shady seating areas and ample terrace furniture and even in the heat of midsummer you are kept cool by pleasant breezes. Guests can enjoy freshly barbequed meats from the wood burning BBQ and dine ‘Al fresco’ under the stars, the night skies are breath taking in this area.
The beautifully renovated Villa Le Brunette is laid out over two floors and offers a spacious, open plan, comfortable living area with an original working fireplace and cool tiled floors. High ceilinged rooms complimented with exposed chestnut wood beams and cleverly positioned Skylights flood the Villa with light and the stylish, but simple décor makes you feel right at home.
