Villa Girasole is located in one of the most exclusive private country estates in Italy with thousands of hectares of immaculate woods, valleys, lakes and rivers. The estate is complete with an 18 hole championship golf course, club and restaurant that serves delicious local food and wine.
The villa has been recently restored and yet retains its original character. A perfect holiday retreat for small groups of friends or multi-generational families with its 6 bedrooms, each equipped with air conditioning and an en-suite bathroom. The comfortably simple living areas on the ground floor open out onto the lawns and terraces, ideal for al fresco meals and the vast gardens make for endless play areas for the younger generation! A large, heated swimming pool (15m x 7m) and several sun loungers make Villa Girasole ideal for sunbathing and relaxing. In the cool, starry evenings, enjoy al fresco dining on your private patio and later at night retire into your en-suite, double bedrooms. With WiFi and air conditioning throughout the property, everyone is happy.
The pleasure of silence, the enchanting surroundings, the proximity to a number of small villages - one, very very small, is reachable on foot although we would recommend to use the car - with restaurants, bread shops, organic markets, artisans shops, hidden little churches and monuments, not to mention proximity to Perugia and Cortona are all part of the best package and experience a villa traveller would want.
Girasole has the advantage of being situated in the very center of Umbria, an area where the simple pleasures of country living embrace art, history and architecture offering wonderful food and wine in nearby towns throughout the two adjoining regions of Lazio and Tuscany. Florence and Rome are within two hours' drive of the estate and Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi and Orvieto are all close-by. The region's capital city Perugia is just twenty minutes away and offers a wealth of cultural activities that include opera and the famous Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate festivals. Other spectacular hilltop towns include Cortona and Preggio, the latter with its annual classical music festival, as well as the annual Montone Film Festival which attracts an international audience.
The Umbria region is exquisite, mystical, peaceful, and best of all, unspoiled. Centrally located, this one landlocked region of Italy is often referred to as the green heart of the country and it is an especially verdant region of mountains, rolling green hills, forests, tumbling rivers, lush farming land, hiking trails, vineyards, and awe inspiring and time transporting views. Out of Umbria come extraordinary and highly regarded wines, both red and white, olive oils, whole grains, exquisite truffles, first rate prosciutto, sausages and other pork products, honeys, cheeses - and much more.
