High in the hills of green Umbria, Villa Montana is a delightful home-base for discerning travelers wanting to explore the nature and antiquities of both Umbria and Tuscany. Near Umbria's capital of Perugia but just five miles from the border with Tuscany, the property is less than an hour's drive from historic hilltop villages.
Florentine painters have hand-painted walls and restored ceilings, using the colors that have graced this estate original walls' pale greens, violets, yellows. The peacefully pleasant living areas, filled with light and breezes offer a welcome rest. The upper floor yield three double bedrooms and a further bedroom with 2 single beds more suited to children. Each bedroom has air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.
Guests favorite pastime is generally reading on the south-facing lawn or at the large pool, pausing after chapters to take in the ever-changing colors of the vast mountain ranges. There are plenty of long walks on the hillside behind the house; the staff of the villa can provision guests with specially prepared picnic baskets, of course.
Montana is situated in the Valtiberina area with the village of Monte Santa Maria, a tiny hillside fortress, close by that can be reached by bike on quite roads in about thirty minutes from the villa. Almost as small as Santa Maria but with a handful of stylish shops (for linen and pottery, especially) is Spello, where Romans have there pied-a-terre. Gubbio, with its grand medieval town square, is just 45 minutes away, and Perugia with world-class shopping is less than that. The Upper Tiber Valley of Umbria, or Valtiberina, has a massive presence of Art, History and Culture as well as abundant natural beauty, with the added luxury of no mass tourism. For those who think about "crossing the border" into Tuscany, Cortona and other spots are less than one hour.
