Beautiful vistas swoop across wooded hills, olive groves and tower-topped hamlets, and paved paths weave through cherry trees and lavender to a hammock, pergola and exquisitely positioned pool. You’re on the top of the world here. Welcome to a big, solid, meticulously restored farmhouse, with chestnut windows, shutters and doors, and bedrooms rustic and spacious. Imagine old beams and terracotta, artisan fabrics and hand-painted lamps, mattresses to ensure deep sleep. The brand new dining room serves rustic dishes made from local, organic ingredients. Outside: masses of space. Your eco-conscious hosts Salvatore and Sarah, generous, kind and eager to please, think of everything to make your stay special: a communal living room with an honesty bar so you can help yourselves to drinks; a cane-covered pergola with cushioned chairs away from the view-filled pool; lavender bags and fresh flowers in the rooms. Sip Sal’s homemade limoncellos over sublime sunsets on the terrace, gaze on the distant towers of Perugia – and the stars. Breakfasts are delicious too.
