The Experience

An amazing surprise at the top of the hill: an old farmhouse in acres of land with heavenly views and broom on the breeze. Isabel and Paul are hugely family-friendly but don’t ignore the grown ups! As well as all you could possibly need for children there’s an adult chill out zone with a hammock, massage and beauty treatments, gorgeous Italian food if you don’t want to bother with cooking. Three self-catering houses stand in a row, each with a barbecue terrace: two-storey Cascina, characterful Villetta and cosy little Cantina. The barn, Granaio, has been converted into four ground-floor apartments, and interiors are fresh and immaculate. Find sofas, armchairs, log-burning stoves, excellent kitchens and wrought-iron beds, tiled floors, rustic walls, the odd beam. Read a book, listen to music, cool off in the pool, play ping pong or volleyball… it’s family heaven. Wander the organic gardens planted with cherries, apricots and almonds; continue to open countryside and woods. Take the old unsignposted mountain road to Assisi for stunning views, drop in on Bevagna’s gorgeous churches. Magic in Umbria.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Paul & Isabel Farber

  • We are immersed in the beautiful Umbrian countryside. Expect lizards & gekos, deer, wild boar, porcupines & birds galore- over 40 species of butterfly, wild orchids, cherries mushrooms & truffles. A perfect location for walking, cycling and hang gliding
  • We offer a daily bread delivery service - order the night before for delicious fresh baked croissants and bread. Also, pick your own organic raspberries & figs (in season)
  • No need to cook if that's not your thing - we offer delicious meals with hand made pasta & family favorites - all delivered to your villa - something to suit all tastes - vegetarian options too.
  • Ideal for sightseeing - just a short hop, skip and a jump to Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Lake Trasimeno, Deruta & Spello. Or fancy a day trip by train to Rome, Florence or Siena - the Rome mainline station is just 20 minutes from the villa!
  • Local shops, bars & village within walking distance. Sagra's (local festivals with food and live entertainment every night of the week) within walking distance last week of July, first 2 weeks of August. Forage for mushrooms & truffles - Spring & Autumn
  • The icing on the cake...Enjoy delicious handmade Italian cuisine in the Tavernetta - open exclusively to guests of the villa - handmade pasta, moorish meat, vegetarian heaven & delicious desserts - made from local and home grown ingredients from our orto.
