Nestled in the heart of the Umbria region, not far from Tuscany, Villa Jaja is an idyllic countryside retreat set amidst sweeping hills and boundless vistas. It stands as a splendid testament to rural life in this specific area, where lush greenery envelops everything, and the exterior exudes the fragrant charm of blooming spring flowers, especially lavender.
Originally a 14th-century chapel, Jaja offers awe-inspiring views of the valley, ensconced within the heart of a natural reserve surrounded by forests, ancient olive groves, and verdant valleys. Thanks to its sturdy stone walls and terra-cotta tiled floors, this venerable structure maintains a cool interior during the summer months, while the sun bathes the lush surroundings in warmth. The villa comprises a comfortably furnished living area, two double bedrooms, and two additional bedrooms, each with two single beds, all boasting en-suite bathrooms and accommodating up to eight guests.
Guests can bask in the serenity of the private pool with its uninterrupted vistas, explore the nature reserve on leisurely walks, find reprieve beneath the shade of ancient trees, or indulge in a round of golf at the nearby 18-hole course. For those seeking refreshment, the golf clubhouse bar is just minutes away. The joy of tranquility, the enchanting ambiance, and the proximity to a handful of quaint villages, one of which can be reached on foot (though a car is recommended), complete with their restaurants, bakeries, organic markets, artisan shops, hidden chapels, and historic landmarks, all contribute to the quintessential villa experience.
Villa Jaja enjoys the distinct advantage of being positioned at the very heart of Umbria, where the simple pleasures of rural living seamlessly blend with art, history, and architectural marvels. The nearby towns of Lazio and Tuscany beckon with their culinary delights and wines. Within a two-hour drive, Florence and Rome await, while Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, and Orvieto are all within easy reach. The regional capital, Perugia, is a mere twenty minutes away and offers a plethora of cultural activities, including opera and the renowned Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate festivals. Other captivating hilltop towns like Cortona and Preggio, the latter hosting an annual classical music festival, as well as the globally acclaimed Montone Film Festival, draw an international audience.
The Umbria region is a tapestry of exquisite beauty, mystique, tranquility, and, above all, unspoiled charm. Central in its location, this landlocked gem is often referred to as the "green heart" of Italy. It boasts a diverse terrain comprising majestic mountains, undulating green hills, pristine forests, meandering rivers, fertile farmland, hiking trails, vineyards, and timeless vistas that transport visitors through the annals of time. From Umbria emerge extraordinary and highly esteemed 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 encapsulate the essence of this remarkable region.
