Umbria is filled with surprises: gentle, dreamy landscapes, wonderful naturalistic views concealing one of Italy’s richest woodland heritages, the vestiges of an ancient past, Etruscan and Roman remains, medieval and Renaissance style buildings and churches, all harmoniously blended to create a welcoming atmosphere of rare beauty.
This prestigious natural stage is the setting for Villa Pognelli: located inside a fully fenced 13 hectare property (8 hectares of which are cultivated). This splendid villa is the result of long, patient renovation work carried out on an ancient farmhouse - part of an enormous agricultural estate surrounding a fortress built in the Middle Ages to defend the city of Todi (just 15 Km away).
The villa consists of a central house with two symmetrical wings. The bright and elegant interior, which has been restored using precious materials, features numerous antique items, rich drapes and a sophisticated décor creating a relaxed, warm and intimate atmosphere.
Each room has its own particular style and the bathrooms include antique tiles and marble. The loving care dedicated to every detail reveals the owners’ great taste .
Outside, there is a large, well-tended garden with park, lot of trees and flowers, a botanical garden containing aromatic herbs as well as a vegetable garden, both of which have been paved for easy access, where guests can pick the season’s produce. There are also fruit trees and, on a lower terrace, there is a beautiful 7 x 14 meter swimming pool, from which it's possible to enjoy the enchanting panorama, as well as a covered living area with sofas and armchairs, a large dining table and a pavilion with fully-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and changing room.
The villa can be rented out to groups of 6 people (in this case only 3 bedrooms will be used, along with all the communal areas) or 12 people. When the villa is rented the owners may temporarily occupy the annex building (with the maximum discretion) in order to tend the plants and flowers in the large garden (however, the swimming pool and garden areas shall continue to be for the exclusive use of the guests).
