The Experience

Annabella’s sprawling villa has been in her family for five generations – the oldest part, the watchtower, dates from the 14th century. It’s surrounded by a large park and a path in the garden leads down to the Tiber river.

Daughter Francesca is the chef and her son Novello the sommelier and maitre’d. Breakfast is in the dining room or in the garden: find a selection of bread, jams, cake and fruit on your table; order eggs, cheese, yogurt and cereals as you wish. Stay for dinner – the restaurant offers traditional cuisine with innovative touches and is popular with locals.

Find a shady spot under an oak tree in the rambling garden, or on the upstairs veranda with views out over the park. You can take a cooking lesson with Francesca or walk or bike in the nearby Tevere or Monte Tezio nature reserves. Both Studio Moretti Caselli stained-glass museum and workshop and Vineria del Carmine wine estate are a 15-minute drive away, and the ceramic centre of Deruta is a 30-minute drive.

The neighbourhood

The house is on the outskirts of the small town of Ponte Pattoli – you can walk to a food market and some small shops in five minutes, or drive a little further for a couple of trattorias. The park houses a public sports club with a swimming pool and tennis courts, as well as riding stables that used to belong to the house

Novello Taticchi

Annabella and her family offer their guests a truly personal stay, and as artists have always been part of the family they often host musicians, summer concerts, artists, literary figures and theatre groups. They are gradually updating the house without disturbing the original essence of their multi-generation family property.
