La Casa Nel Bosco enjoys a prime position alongside a picturesque stream within a sprawling private estate. With its beautiful setting, luxury wellness facilities and close proximity to hillside towns and scenic countryside, it’s the ultimate Umbrian retreat. 

This 13th-century mill has been lovingly renovated into a comfortable country home which maintains much of its original character and rustic charm. Wooden beams and exposed brick walls feature throughout while many of the rooms also boast large stone fireplaces. The mill’s ancient underground vault offers a glimpse into its former life and now provides a unique location for a lavish jacuzzi!

Two double bedrooms with marble en-suite bathrooms can be found upstairs while downstairs offers the perfect place for everyone to get together. Whether you’re flexing your culinary skills in the kitchen, having a romantic al-fresco meal under the stars or spending cosy evenings in front of the fire, there’s a space for every mood and occasion. 

Outside is just as lovely, with grassy lawns, shady trees and nearby woodland offering lots of greenery. A stream trickling beside the house adds to the idyllic scene and there’s nothing more serene than sitting in the sunshine with your morning coffee and listening to the sound of the water. Enjoy refreshing dips in the pool as well, or, once the sun sets, hop in the outdoor hot tub. 

To discover the outstanding natural beauty that Umbria possesses, all you need to do is explore the estate surrounding you. There are woods, olive groves, valleys and rivers just beyond your doorstep. Take longs walks and spot some of the estate’s wildlife or try fishing in one of the rivers. 

For a range of useful amenities head to Umbertide (15km) where there is a supermarket as well as cafés and pizzerias. Other charming villages and historic towns nearby include Perugia (20km), Assisi (48km) and Montepulciano (59km). Slightly further afield you will also find the cities of Arezzo and Siena. Both can be reached in around an hour and make fantastic destinations for a day trip.

Lake Trasimeno is a 45-minute drive away and is a natural paradise home to lots of wildlife. Enjoy swimming in the bright blue waters and trying watersports like sailing and windsurfing.

La Casa Nel Bosco is ideally located in the heart of the Umbrian countryside. Surrounded by the woodlands, olive groves, valleys and lakes of a huge private estate, all it takes is stepping outside the villa’s front door to discover the region’s beautiful landscapes. 

Enjoy fishing in the rivers, taking a dip in one of the natural pools and going for long walks through the oak forests. You can also visit the estate’s stunning gardens and farm which is home to many friendly animals including goats, hens, rabbits and ducks!

The closest restaurant can also be found within the estate itself and offers delicious local cuisine in a stylish setting. For more restaurants, and a handful of useful amenities including a supermarket, head to Umbertide (15km). Situated on the Tiber River, the town is filled with historic streets and picturesque piazzas lined with cafés and pizzerias. There are also some impressive medieval sites in Umbertide, notably the 16th-century Santa Maria della Reggia church and La Rocca, a striking stone fortress. 

Perugia (20km) is the region’s capital and offers a fantastic selection of sites to explore, including the Priori Palace and Fontana Maggiore, a marble fountain carved with zodiac signs and historical scenes. The city is also well-known for its chocolate, with a festival called EuroChocolate taking place each year, usually in October. And it’s not just chocolate that is celebrated here. Each July the Umbria Jazz Festival is also held in Perugia and features a selection of concerts and street performances. 

Gubbio (35km) is a wonderful town to visit during your stay. For incredible views over the Appenine Mountains, take the Funivia Colle Eletto cable car up to the top of Monte Ingino, where you will also find the Sant’Ubaldo Basilica. 

Other charming villages and towns nearby include Assisi (48km) and Montepulciano (59km). The birthplace of St. Francis, Assisi is a town steeped in beauty and history and boasts a UNESCO-listed Basilica. Montepulciano has great views over Val di Chiana and Val d’Orica and is renowned for its Vino Nobile. 

Slightly further afield you will also find the cities of Arezzo (72km), known for its hilltop Cathedral, and Siena (120km), which is an ancient city full of gothic and medieval architecture and the 14th-century Torre del Mangia. 

Nearby Lake Trasimeno is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is home to an array of wildlife. Swim in the bright blue waters and try popular watersports such as sailing and windsurfing. The town of Castiglione del Lago (46km) is an idyllic place to spend the day by the lakeside, with a sandy beach and sun loungers, pedalos and canoes available to hire in summer.

Region

Umbria has best of Italy to offer: rolling landscapes, wine, beautiful towns and villages, olive oil, expansive lakes and the food, glorious food. A holiday here can be as lazy, active, cultured and as delicious as you like.

This region is scattered with pretty, picturesque villages, while the area has a rich cultural heritage. From thermal pools to medieval cathedrals and olive oil museum, Umbria has an intriguing amount of history to discover.

Both Rome and Florence are accessible within a day trip, while the closest towns of interest would be Orvieto, the old town which is a fascinating series of winding streets, piazzas and a colourful weekly market. 

History lovers will be spoilt - from the first century Roman amphitheatres to the twelfth-century duomos, to the fourteenth-century hilltop fortresses,  the glut of remnants from the medieval and Bronze Age that punctuate the region is impressive.
