Umbrian Villa

The Umbrian villa has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. It is an excellent holiday home for groups of friends or larger families. The central location not far from Perugia makes it an ideal starting point to explore Umbria. 

"The house, the pool, the garden, the view etc., it was all just super."

Based between Citta di Castello, Gubbio and Perugia, you are only 10 minutes from the highway connecting Umbria to Tuscany. Enjoy your Umbrian stay in this spacious villa with private pool and excellent views over the hills.

The substantial driveway is lined with old olive trees and you can (manually) close the gate to the house, to enjoy your holiday in even more privacy. There is ample parking before reaching the house. Immediately around the villa, pots with flowers and plants are scattered around, and a wide gravel path leads to the swimming pool which has been built at the other side of the house, on a higher level.

The pool is very pretty, with a low edge towards the valley which makes the view also from within the pool an absolute joy. The terrace around the swimming pool is made of natural stone and there is a good space to enjoy both sun and shade. The pool measures 5m by 10m and 1.50m deep.

There is wifi.

prices, availability & booking
Umbrian villa rental for holidays in Umbria

This Umbria rental villa has 5 ensuite bedrooms. One bedroom is on the ground floor and suitable for wheelchair users. The other 4 bedrooms are upstairs and you get here by using the outside staircase. There is a terrace at the back of the house, providing a second entrance to the four upstairs bedrooms.

All bedrooms have double beds.

Each bedroom has a bathroom with shower and there is an additional bathroom for general use on the ground floor. The kitchen is semi professional, because the villa rental was designed to be a B&B or agriturismo, where one could rent a room for several nights. This destination was changed, although in the low season you are welcome to stay a few nights only.

Next to the house and close to the kitchen is a spacious covered terrace to enjoy dinner outside in the company of friends and family.

My wife and I stayed recently at la Macinara, with our daughter Mary.

The house was very comfortable, the location delightful, the pool beautifully situated and very clean. The owners were attentive without being intrusive, and very helpful. All in all an excellent holiday.

Hi Saskia and Willemijn,

Our experiences with the Umbrian Villa are very positive. The house, the pool, the garden, the view etc., it was all just super. It was very clean, the kitchen has all you need and the owners are friendly. They came by each morning to water the plants and we manage to exchange a few words (in italian!). The daughter Stefania also speaks some english. She accompanied us to some shops in Perugia and Montepulciano (from friends of her). THe owners do not push for anything, if you want your peace, they just leave you alone. If instead you show some interest, they are ready to advice you on trips in the area, local recepies etc. Now and then they brought us some home made food and of you wish you can also buy from their own produce: goat’s cheese, yoghurt, salami, olive oil, limoncello and other (interesting) home made drinks. We have nothing negative to remark. I would recommend the Umbrian Villa to anyone and we would love to return.

Best regards and thank you for your good service.

Jurgen, Agna, the kids and our friends that came along!

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

We have had a great time in Umbrian villa. Your information about the villa was excellent. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice, clean, spacious and complete. The view was beautiful; pool very beautiful and and clean. The washing machine was working well and dishwasher also and the fridges were excellent. Stefania, the daughter of the owners, was a pleasant contact person and very helpful.

(We did not like it a lot that sometimes family of the owners, especially the brother of Stefania, would come to the villa without any obvious reason. He once stood near the pool making a long telephone call and then left without doing anything. This was not optimal as we did not feel totally private.

One thing we would really find important in the future is to have wifi. We have used Stefania's wifi occasionally, but this was working only from the house of her parents, a few hundred meters down the road.

Many thanks! We will certainly rent through you again.


Hi Saskia and Willemijn,

our holiday has already ended. All went really well and both locations were very good. The Umbrian villa was a nice surprise with friendly and helpful owner. The villa was pleasant and comfortable. We still enjoy Umbria for many reasons, amongst these are the beautiful landscapes, the peace and quiet and the nice weather.

Best wishes, Peter and Anne


Everything was perfect with our holiday. The villa suited us very well - plenty of peace and quiet, but not too far away from shops and restaurants - a perfect location. The owners were wonderful - very welcoming and helpful. We would very much like to return to this villa and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Kind regards, Paul

Hereby our experiences:

Umbrian Villa is a lovely location. The view from the big terrace or the pool is simply too good for words. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. It is clear that the owners took great efforts to make it into a luxurious villa. Every bedroom has its own bathroom with shower, toilet, bidet and furthermore on the ground floor there are two extra toilets. The bedroom downstairs is suitable for wheelchair users. The kitchen is spacious and semi professional, with large working space in stainless steel. There are several fridges. Too bad the cooker has only 4 pits, a bigger one with 6 pits would have been nicer since the villa is for many people. Cutlery and plates are plenty and beer glasses as well. There are only few wine glasses (4). The grounds are beautiful, the spacious pool is sublime and is being cleaned every other day. Stefania and her mother are very hospitable and pass by regularly with home made cake and vegetable from their garden. We stayed two weeks in Umbrian Villa and guess we did not receive a change of linen because the owner have forgotten, but we did not really mind.

Umbrian Villa is also a perfect base for visiting Umbria. We will definitely recommend Umbrian Villa to our friends and family.

Best wishes, Michel

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We had a lovely week in the Umbrian Villa.

It has lovely views of the surrounding hills. Also nice and spacious kitchen. The dishwasher and hot plate were a bit moody but the owners were quick to lend a helping hand. It is nice to know they keep an eye on things. Bedrooms and bathrooms nice and neat. The poolwater was a bit on the cold side but I must say we were quite early. To be repeated and recommended!

Regards, Jaco
btw. Thanks again for answering our many questions.

Good afternoon Saskia and Willemijn,

We stayed with 3 families (14 persons) during 2 weeks in 'Umbrian Villa'. We had a very nice holiday and really enjoyed our stay.

Our comments:
- Very nice reception Leandra ea.
- Upon arrival Leandra brought homemade bread. During our stay we got homegrown vegetables, fruit and olive oil.
- Well situated, wonderful views. House is easy to reach via a paved road (which is not always the case in Tuscany and Umbria).
- Good privacy due to large terrain.
- Great base from where to visit Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto, Lago Trasimeno, etc
- Very spacious house with all offering all comforts. (Very positive, each room has its own bathroom)
- Large swimming pool that was being well maintained.
- Sport facilities nearby like a tennis court.

Honestly not many bad things to say only:
- Not enough plates, we were 14 and only had 11 normal plates en 3 soup plates, 14 of the same would have been welcome.
- We like to drink wine or beer from wine- and beerglasses which we couldn't find. There were enough softdrink glasses.
- The dishwasher was lacking in performance, not everything came out clean. Our command of the Italian language was too limited to make this clear to the owners.
- The fridge and the small fridge were on the small side for 14 people.

We are already making plans to discover other parts of Italy.

Kind regards, Hendrik van H.

From 2009:

Good afternoon,

We had lovely week in a lovely house, amidst lovely surroundings and with lovely views! On the webpage the house looks a bit "cheap", but in real life it is much more beautiful. I'd start with making new pictures, if I were you. On the pictures you do not see, how clean it is. Just the kirchen would be nice if iy had a more modern look. One side of the kitchen is just fine, the other looks old and a bit put together. All other facilities are just fine. We were received by the friendly owner who brought us some apetizers in the afternoon. She keeps on talking in italian, but we enjoyed it a lot. The location of the property is ideal for some trips in the area and also do go out for some nice walks. There are small ponds in the area and fields with sunflowers.

The only "but" we would like to mention is the fact that the owner and her son pass by every mroning - without notice - and the last morning even at 6.30 and at 7.30 again! They sprinkle the flowers, take care of the garden etc. Nonetheless I had told the owner we would leave around 9.30. I asked her to leave and let us sleep before our long trip back home. At 8.30 she returned with the cleaning ladies! We got up, packed and left earlier then planned. I didn't appreciate her attitude at all, that morning. She chased us away.

Hopefully this provides you with enough information. I'd like to stress that we had a wonderful week, in a good house at a fantastic location, with friendly owners.

Thank you very much, kind regards, Alexandra

Hello Saskia and Willemijn,

our stay has been just fine. We were all pleasantly surprised seeing the house, its garden, the pool and the wonderful view. Only the cooker is somewhat small for a large house like this.

Thank you very much, Danny

Hello Saskia and Willemijn,

Just a short note that we (a group of girlfriends)  enjoyed our holiday at the Umbrian Villa very much. Lovely location, fantastic views, peace and quiet and lazy afternoons around the pool: we all enjoyed it thoroughly. We found the onwer a heart warming lady who brought us some of her own honey on the first day.

I'd also like to thank you for your help when one of us ended up in hospital. We appreciated your help and concern. She returned to Norway safely and was at home when her granddaughter was born. She did not have to stay in hospital in Norway but needs daily medicines and daily check ups.

Again thanks a lot and send our warm regards to the Signora. I made a nice picture of her and will send it.

Bye, Marianne

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We have just returned from Solfagnano and had a fantastic time! The house is perfect. After reading all the comments from former guests we were a bit sceptical, but we can only be enthusiastic. We started looking for scorpions, bats and other insects former guests have mentioned. We couldn't find any. The owner's dogs haven't been on the premises. What we did find was a very clean house, good sanitary facilities, good furniture and a lovely pool. The views are breathtaking!

The kitchen surely is semi professional. The stove, in fact, is too small for a house this size. With some creativity we had some top meals and even made our own bread.

The owners are very friendly. They gave us fruit and vegetables and even a home made pie when we celebrated a birthday!

In short, for larger groups (we were nine) this house is definitely recommendable.

With kind regards, Jannette and family

Reaction Villa in Umbria: the owners will make sure there will be a better stove in 2010.

The down payment is 30% of the rental sum. The balance will be paid one month before arrival. The security deposit is 300 Euro.

In Italy the tourism tax has been introduced. Each town can decide independently whether to apply this tax. It is important to keep in mind that the prices on our website do NOT include the tourism tax. Where we received confirmation from house owners that they have to ask for this tax, it is written underneath the price table.

Villa in Umbria is an intermediary and as such rents out holiday homes and apartments on behalf of their owners. When you book we will be sending an agreement in which you will find the bank details for the down payment and the final payment.

We know each vacation rental personally and also the owners of all the holiday rentals we have in our portfolio.

You can read more about us on the 'About Villa in Umbria' page.
