Perched atop a picturesque hill in the Umbria region, just a stone's throw from Tuscany, lies Villa Aladina, a timeless retreat surrounded by the serene beauty of the Italian countryside. It is a pristine embodiment of rural life in this enchanting locale, where every facet is cloaked in lush greenery, and the air carries the sweet fragrance of spring blossoms, particularly lavender.
Originally constructed as a 14th-century farmhouse, Lavise bestows its guests with breathtaking 360-degree vistas that span across the valley. This idyllic setting is nestled within the heart of a natural reserve, embraced by dense woodlands, centuries-old olive groves, and verdant valleys. The venerable stone walls and flagstone floors of this historic edifice ensure a refreshingly cool interior during the balmy summer months, while the sun-drenched grounds flourish abundantly. The villa comprises a tastefully appointed living area and three double bedrooms, each graced with its own en-suite bathroom, accommodating up to six guests in total.
A private heated pool invites guests to indulge in leisurely swims against a backdrop of uninterrupted tranquility. Strolls through the nature reserve unveil moments of reprieve beneath the shade of ancient trees, and for the golf enthusiasts, an 18-hole course is conveniently located nearby. A mere stone's throw from the villa, the golf clubhouse bar beckons with the allure of a refreshing glass of Prosecco.
The pleasure of silence, the enchantment of the surroundings, and the proximity to quaint villages, some reachable on foot (though a car is recommended), offer a mosaic of experiences. These villages boast charming eateries, bakeries, organic markets, artisanal shops, hidden chapels, and historic monuments. Not to be overlooked is the villa's close proximity to Perugia and Cortona, both renowned for their cultural offerings.
Villa Aladina enjoys the remarkable advantage of being positioned at the very heart of Umbria, a region where the simple joys of rural living harmonize seamlessly with art, history, and architectural wonders. The nearby towns of Lazio and Tuscany beckon with their culinary delights and wines. Florence and Rome are within an easy two-hour drive, while Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, and Orvieto are all within arm's reach. Perugia, the capital city of the region, lies a mere twenty minutes away and presents a wealth of cultural activities, including opera and the renowned Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate festivals. Spectacular hilltop towns such as Cortona and Preggio, the latter hosting an annual classical music festival, as well as the internationally acclaimed Montone Film Festival, complete the cultural tapestry of the region.
Umbria, often referred to as the "green heart" of Italy, is a land of unparalleled beauty and tranquility, largely untouched by modernity. Nestled at the center of Italy, this region boasts a diverse landscape characterized by majestic mountains, undulating hills, lush forests, meandering rivers, fertile farmland, hiking trails, vineyards, and vistas that transport visitors through time. From Umbria emanate exceptional and highly regarded wines, both red and white, along with olive oils, ancient grains, exquisite truffles, top-tier prosciutto, sausages, honey, cheeses, and an array of gastronomic treasures that capture the essence of this remarkable land.
