Modern Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Gaze over the valley towards Assisi’s magnificent medieval fortress as you relax in your al-fresco lounge, surrounded by the tranquil sounds and sights of the ‘Green Heart of Italy’.

Frate Sole is a unique holiday home with exceptional owners who have created a contemporary haven of calm, surprisingly close to the world-famous town of Assisi. Relax in the al-fresco lounge in the shade of the pergola with a glass of wine, perhaps from the vineyards of nearby Monte Subasio, as you admire the remarkable sunset.

The heated swimming pool is also positioned to make the most of the endless vistas of hills, woodland and the Rocca Maggiore and there is ample space to dine al-fresco by the barbecue, especially atmospheric in the evening as the gardens are beautifully lit. Green lawns, swathes of summer lavender and scattered olive trees add to the peaceful vibe of the glorious grounds.

Step inside and the open-plan design is outstanding with contemporary décor, artistic sculptures and state-of-the-art features such as air-conditioning throughout, an integrated speaker system and an IPad for you to select your chosen music, whether in the relaxing living area or by the swimming pool. Most rooms have doors leading to the lower gardens or courtyard, including the three inviting bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathroom. A fourth shower room includes a sauna for an added touch of luxury!

Fall in love with Assisi when exploring its historic sights and learning all about this UNESCO World Heritage site – the Basilica di San Francesco is just 3km away and the heart of the town just a little further. Even closer is the beautiful forest, the Bosco di San Francesco, with its walking trails and amazing nature. A traditional osteria serves delicious Umbrian fare at the edge of the woods, just 1km from the villa.  

There is so much more to explore across the undulating hills of Umbria – come across hidden hilltop villages set amidst stunning natural landscapes. The three medieval gems of Spello, Bevagna and Montefalco are close by or drive a little further to the spectacular towns of Todi and Spoleto. The university city of Perugia is also a delight to discover or head to Monte Subasio for wonderful hiking and mountain biking.

The setting of this ultra-modern holiday home is incredible in so many ways with its panoramic vistas and serene surroundings, close to so many attractions of this captivating region.

With magical views towards Assisi’s medieval fortress, Rocca Maggiore, and the surrounding valley, Frate Sole enjoys a picture-perfect setting just 3km from the Basilica di San Francesco and close to the heart of the enchanting and historic town.

It’s just over 1km to the nearest restaurant, a rustic osteria with traditional Umbrian food, whilst the nearest shops and supermarkets are in and around Assisi, a short drive (or bike ride) away.

It’s no wonder Assisi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – it’s an incredible town filled with wondrous art, history and Umbrian charm. The architecture will astound you and, alongside the visitors that flock to see the unique and exceptional sights, you will fall in love with Assisi as you explore its narrow lanes, peruse its pretty shops and come across artistic treasures. It’s especially enchanting by night as many of the day-trippers depart and you can find a charming restaurants serving the very best authentic cuisine from wild boar porchetta to pasta, farro and autumn truffles accompanied by delicious Umbrian wines.

The forest, Bosco di San Francesco, is also close to the villa and a wonderful place to connect with nature and for peaceful walks with all the family. There are well marked trails to follow and it’s a particular delight on hot summer days as you seek shade in the tranquil woodland.

This region also offers horse-riding opportunities through the enchanting Umbrian landscapes as well as cycling, hiking and even watersports and boat trips at Lake Trasimeno, reached in under an hour by car.

In the ‘Green Heart of Italy’, there’s a wealth of other idyllic Umbrian villages to explore, such as the medieval hill towns of Spello (15km), Bevagna (22km) and Montefalco (30km) or a little further to Spoleto (50km) with its incredible Ponte delle Torre. Sip coffee at Piazza del Popolo in beautiful Todi (55km) and if you are yearning to cross the border into southern Tuscany then Cortona (70km) and Montepulciano (85km) are fine places to discover.

Closer to home, Perugia (23km) is a charming historic city filled with culture, cafes and wonderful shops, creating a youthful ambience amongst exquisite Renaissance architecture. Look out for the Umbrian jazz festival in mid-July which attracts artists from all over the world whilst chocolate lovers can visit the Perugina Chocolate House in the outskirts of the city, home of the famous Baci sweets.

If travelling with children, seek shade from the summer sun in the beautiful Bosco di San Francesco where you can follow marked trails and explore the surrounding nature to your hearts content. Just 1km from the villa, it’s fantastic to have this special forest so near.

Of course, all the family will be keen to visit the famous town of Assisi to see the historic sights and artistic treasures. Learn all about the life of St Francis and get to know the location of the best gelaterias or bakeries for quick subsistence when you are walking up and down the hilly lanes of this historic town, of which there is so much to explore.

For a change of scene, head west towards Lake Trasimeno for lakeside beaches, nature walks, watersports (canoeing, kayaking, pedal boats and sailing) and boat trips across to one of the lake’s islands.

There is horse-riding near Assisi and keen walkers should head to the Parco del Monte Subasio for yet more incredible scenery.

Perugia also offers family fun, not just in the relaxed city centre itself but also at the Perugina Chocolate House on the outskirts of the city. The amusement park, Città della Domenica, will also appeal to a variety of ages.
