Villa Architetto is immediately striking as a breath of fresh air. Gone are the classic stone walls and dark interiors, in with bright open spaces and modern clean lines. This villa stands out as a unique place to stay in Umbria as the owner has created a special home-from-home with stunning views and lots of internal and external space from where to sit back and relax.
This single storey construction was recently constructed by a well-known architect and e has ensured that top quality materials have been used throughout the build. Six connected cottages make up the villa and large French windows allow the light to stream in and fill the house. The main section of the villa has a marvellous open plan kitchen and dining area. To one side there is also a large living area with home entertainment system built in. Beyond this living room is the master bedroom which has a fabulous sunken bath, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom. Plus two French windows that open out onto the garden. The other side of the kitchen area lies a second small living area and two further bedrooms with bathrooms. All beds in the main house are double beds. The fourth bedroom is accessed externally and can be made up as a double or twin room, there is also an en suite bathroom and a mezzanine area, which is not suitable for sleeping in.
Directly outside the front of the villa is a lovely covered dining area where we are sure most of your meals will be taken. The views across the valley are wide and expansive. The large grassed area ensures a unhindered view and about 50m from the house the inviting pool is bound to be popular. Here too is a covered seating area.
