Arrival day: Saturday Car hire: Recommended
Stunning country villa, set in over twenty acres of private grounds, the villa nestles into a hill in verdant Umbrian countryside a few minutes from the beautiful ancient hill top town of Montone. Surrounded by lawns, olives, woods and a mountainous horizon, anyone staying at the villa will appreciate the superb views and the special sense of peace and calm.
The villa has been lovingly restored and decorated in a modern chic style that blends seamlessly with the traditional stone walls and ancient wood beamed ceilings. Special attention has been paid to indoor lighting to create an intimate, but open and airy space.
It is a perfect place to stay for a group of friends or families with large reception rooms and plenty of private space. The outdoor deck, by the kitchen garden, is a dream for watching glorious sunsets with a cocktail or shooting stars by night. The covered loggia is the ideal space for barbecues and outside dining.
The ground floor has cool tiled flooring and is seamlessly open plan in the living areas. The entrance hall leads to a small office with a library for guests to select reading matter to suit their wishes, TV/video games room, comfortable drawing room leading to the pool with a traditional fireplace for cooler evenings and a huge well stocked kitchen/dining room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the valley below. A well- equipped utility room leads off from the kitchen.
On the other side of the entrance hall is a double bedroom suite, with a dressing room with a beautiful claw-foot bath and chandelier and a separate shower room and doors leading to the garden and its own patio.
The wrought iron staircase leads to the upstairs bedrooms and master suite. On this floor there is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each with their own bathroom opposite, and the master suite with its own dressing room, superb bathroom, fireplace and a wrought iron staircase leading up to the tower room with views across the valley and sleeping for an additional 2 people. The master suite has its own intimate private patio and external staircase leading back to the gardens. All bedrooms (and the tower room) have remote controlled ceiling fans for warmer evenings.
The surrounding gardens and olive grove are awash with gorgeous plants and flowers. The pool area is stunning, loungers, hammocks and so much more! The pool annex hosts a table tennis table and secluded area for a spot of yoga or croquet; the kitchen garden is planted from May - September.
In Casa di Luce we believe we may have found the perfect Umbrian villa and we're confident it offers all the discerning holiday maker may require.
