Description

Villa Capanne is a 600-year-old farmhouse, in northern Umbria, Italy, beautifully restored to retain its original charm. It stands at the top of the Antognolla Valley, looking down to the magnificent castle and across the championship golf course.

The property is situated within the Antognolla Estate, which provides both privacy and security. Entrance to the estate is through a guarded entry and guests receive a pass upon arrival to open and close the entry gate.

The main house, Capanne, has four large double bedrooms, simply, yet elegantly furnished. Broadband Internet access is available throughout the main villa and cottage. The cottage, Capannetta, is adjacent to the main Villa, but separate and self-contained. It also commands views across the rolling hills and forests of the Antognolla Estate.

The main house, Capanne, is approached through a lovely courtyard, with the first floor still accessible via the original staircase. Adjacent to the main house is the main terrace, eating areas, pergola and the beautiful infinity swimming pool.

On the ground floor, there is a fully-equipped kitchen with two ovens, gas range, large refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and coffee making machine. There is also a breakfast table with seating for six. Off the kitchen is a laundry and utility room, which contains both a washing machine and separate dryer, with ironing facilities. There is also a separate WC. Leading from the kitchen is a spectacular dining and living room, which is presided over by the great fireplace. The antique French oak dining table can seat eight comfortably or be modified to seat twelve.

The living room also has a large satellite TV, with VCR and DVD. There is also a Hi-Fi unit. A selection of videos and CDs are provided for guests enjoyment.

At the top of the stairs leading from the main sitting room, there is a large games room. This has a snooker/table-tennis table, sofa and sitting area and a large selection of board and other games. Off the games room, there are a further three double bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms.

Master Suite/Yellow Room

The master suite features a large double bedroom, with stunning valley views and en-suite bathroom with shower and hydro-massage bath.

Blue Room

Leading from the main sitting room, down the corridor, there is a large bedroom with a double or two single beds, en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower. Off this corridor is also another separate WC.

Pink Room

Bedroom with two singles or one double and en-suite bathroom with shower.

Green Room

Bedroom with two singles or one double and en-suite bathroom with shower.

The second house, Capannetta, is adjacent to the main Villa, but separate and self-contained offering a further two double bedrooms both en-suite. There is an external covered terrace, with seating for six and stunning views of the surrounding forests, Monte Acuto and the monastery, whose distant bells provide a musical backdrop each day.

Capannetta has two double bedrooms, with modern en-suite bathrooms (one with hydro-massage bath). The fully equipped kitchen has an oven and gas range, large refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. A dining room with adjacent living room contains a fabulous wood burning fire with a built-in, fan-forced, pizza oven. Satellite TV is also provided.

The house is surrounded by 2 and a half acres of stunning landscaped gardens with mature olive trees, banks of lavender and a vast array of shrubs. There is an ‘L-shaped’ infinity pool with a large surrounding terrace for sun beds and loungers. The sun terrace affords magnificent views of the Antognolla Castle and the estate beyond. The pool is salt water treated and has both shallow and deep ends allowing young and old to enjoy it. Near the pool is a large covered pergola with seating for 12 and a large gas barbecue. A further separate kitchen garden is adjacent to the main house and features its own seating area for six people. There is undercover parking for two cars and ample space on the driveway for other vehicles.

Villa Le Capanne has so much to offer for a perfect family holiday – add to this the possibility of playing a round of golf (there are a couple of sets of clubs at the villa) on the award-winning course next door and also popping into the clubhouse for dinner – and we think that we have found a gem. Day trips to the numerous beautiful towns and villages will intersperse your days by the pool and relaxing in this corner of Umbrian paradise.
