Featuring great exteriors and surroundings, is a perfect sample of the countryside life in this particular area : everything is green, the exterior area is scented like flowers blossoming in spring (lavender) and the entire experience it is quintessentially Italian.
Originally a 14th century chapel, Jaja offers spectacular views across the valley located in the heart of a natural reserve surrounded by woods, olive trees and green valleys. With its thick stone walls and terra-cotta tiled floors, this ancient building stays cool during the summer months, while the sun nourishes the verdant grounds around it.

Guest can swim in the private pool with its endless peaceful views. They can walk across the nature reserve, relax in the shadow of a timeworn tree or play a round of golf at the 18h hole golf course nearby or enjoy a glass of "Prosecco" at the golf clubhouse bar just minutes away from the villa. 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 traveler would want.
