Villa Lavanda offers undisturbed escapism along with easy access to some of Umbria’s finest towns and villages such as Todi, Orvieto, Perugia, Spoleto and Assisi. It is ideally located to the south of Todi with good connections to the surrounding area. The nearest town, Todi, is considered one of Umbria’s most beautiful hill towns. The villa has a secluded location but is only a 4-minute drive to the nearest fortified village of Sismano with its castle, where some shops and a good restaurant can be found, and just 8 minutes away from the lovely hilltop village of Pesciano. The larger town of Todi, 15 minutes way, offers all facilities for shopping, food, art and culture.
The traditional stone house has been recently and carefully restored with flair and style, creating very contemporary and stylish interiors within the authentic structure of a classic Umbrian farmhouse. The villa is spread over two levels.
The ground floor features a large open-plan sitting/dining room divided by columns and a fireplace visible from both sides. French doors open onto the garden, outdoor dining areas and the pool. On the same floor, there is a fabulously equipped modern kitchen with an ‘industrial’ style stove, espresso machine, bread machine, 2 refrigerators. Also on the ground floor, there is a service bathroom with shower and the utility room with laundry area.
The bedrooms are all on the first floor. There is a lovely small living room with a fireplace and 3 spacious double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a luxury ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and bathtub. This bedroom has separately adjustable mattresses to raise the shoulders and read or lift the lower part of the body, the room also features a study corner with a desk for a laptop.
Villa Lavanda has a well-kept garden with scented herb borders and partially covered with white gravel. The garden has multiple sitting/lounging areas, shaded areas and a large pergola to enjoy eating outside or just to take in the view and spectacular sunsets admiring rolling hills and the lovely village of Pesciano. In front of the house there is an area with lawn and a beautiful hammock under the shade of the trees.
The pergola and the pool area are equipped with rustic-chic outdoor furniture and a gas barbecue. After sunset, for alfresco dinners, the garden is lit by several solar lamps that create a charming atmosphere. The wonderful swimming pool has a jet stream system that provides aquatic exercise and family fun. From mild to vigorous workout with endless swimming or walking on the spot. The internal roman staircase provides easy and secure access to the pool for children and elderly people, the staircase also has an area designed to lie down in the low water and sunbathing, maybe holding a drink and chatting with friends. A shower next to the pool supplies cold and hot water.
Villa Lavanda is a very comfortable and elegant villa which we are sure our guests will enjoy, plus it is well located to explore the beautiful Umbrian countryside and the stunning towns within. We can organise a variety of extra services such as cooks, wine tastings and vineyard visits. Quite possibly you will want to return year after year.
