Villa Dorata is an exquisite three bedroom country house in the rolling hills near the stunning hilltop town of Todi. The villa enjoys breathtaking country views of the Tiber river valley and hills. Recently restored, Villa Dorata offers contemporary comfort, combining the traditional architecture with modern interior design and contemporary artworks. The owner, a famed stylist, art, food and wine lover has traveled the world and after the extensive restoration has decided to share this paradise with other people looking for space to relax in beautiful surroundings and spend quality time with their loved ones. Villa Dorata is a peaceful countryside retreat, where guests can feel at home sipping coffee in the garden, enjoying a glass of wine by the pool, reading or cooking the local genuine food of the region.
Surrounded by olive groves and with endless views of Umbria’s landscape, Villa Dorata has stone-built exteriors with and traditional shuttered windows. Set over two levels, this property is the ideal destination for families or of friends travelling together. Villa Dorata has a typical farmhouse design and is furnished in a contemporary fresh style with modern facilities, boasting wooden beamed ceilings throughout. It blends traditional and contemporary luxury, resin floors and modern furnishings. All bedrooms are en suite, the entire villa is air-conditioned, wifi coverage in the villa and the outdoors, large openings, mosquito screens in all windows and doors.
On the ground floor, the modern well-equipped open plan kitchen has a dining area with a beautiful wooden table, this area leads into a spacious and bright living room, enriched by numerous artworks. On this floor we find the first bedroom, it features a king size bed and en suite bathroom with a large shower; direct access from the outside ensures total privacy. A service bathroom and a laundry room (washing and drying machine) complete the ground floor.
The upper level contains the spacious master suite composed of the bedroom (queen size bed), en suite bathroom (large shower) and a spacious study, with direct access to the back area of the garden. This floor is completed by the third double bedroom with en suite bathroom and independent access from the outside. Villa Dorata has been designed to have the master suite on the first floor accessible from the ground floor (and from the garden, through the study) and the other two bedrooms are just accessible from the garden without any opening to the interior of the villa, in order to ensure a complete privacy for couples and friends holidaying together. The owner prefers to rent the villa to adults or children above the age of twelve. In the villa, there is Apple TV, Netflix, SONOS sound system... all mod cons, but we hope that during the holiday you will be gazing at the view, kicking off your shoes and re-discover the time to read a good book.
The veranda is directly accessible from the kitchen, with an alfresco dining table and a barbecue. It provides the perfect spot for guests to unwind and enjoy the enviable setting. Amazing sunsets can be admired from the front side of the villa. A lawn leads to the private pool, with plenty of sun loungers, an umbrella and the natural shade of the olive trees, the ideal place to relax. The salt water pool is 12 x 3.5 metres. The manicured garden is planted with typical local varieties of flowers and trees and is terraced. There are ample places to have a snooze or top up your tan, including a scenic terrace with table and chairs. The garden is fenced, with private parking and an electric gate at the entrance.
The villa is accessed by a four kilometres of country lane. The stunning town of Todi is approximately twelve kilometres away, and the nearest shops and restaurants are nine kilometres away. Many of Umbria’s beautiful towns and villages are within an easy ride from Villa Dorata. Day trips will include Orvieto, Todi itself, Montefalco, Spoleto, Assisi and many many more. Villa Dorata offers the perfect combination, we believe, of a slice of luxury living and one of the most beautiful regions of Italy.
