Country chic in Umbria's olive groves and valleys: three pools, a sauna, four-posters, fresh air, Slow Food and warm Italian hospitality

No one fuses the past with the present so perfectly as the Italians. This venerable 150-hectare estate, in the family since 1673, lies in a landscape of beauty and tranquillity. Approach through olive groves with valley views, wash up at a borgo in the hamlet of Poreta. The square, the stables, the sheepfold, the granary, the mill – all have been exquisitely revived. Two friendly dogs and owner Filippo, tall, languid and charming, live in the villa up on the hill and welcome you on board. The Borgo exudes exclusivity yet feels unexpectedly relaxed. Imagine exposed stones and rustic rafters, colourwashed walls in muted earth tones, elegant rugs on terracotta floors, four-posters draped in soft cotton, upholstered bedheads, ancient doors, a sunken bath tub like a Turkish hamman: these are spaces to linger in. With a dining room and a multi-sofa'd 'salotto', a sauna, a kitchen for cookery courses and a trio of pools, it's a resort of the classiest kind. They're into Slow Food here and breakfasts are plentiful, served under the pergola in summer. Good value, too.
