With over 30 per cent of the region’s total area made up of woodland, Umbria is known as “the Green Heart of Italy”. Villa Chimneys has the unique advantage of being situated in the very centre of this area steeped with history and tradition.

Umbria is one of Italy’s most beautiful and enchanting regions. This tranquil land of saints and ancient mystics, with its romantic countryside and its historically rich medieval hill-towns, inspires a special reverence in the hearts of Italians as well as the foreigners visiting it.  More than anywhere else, the region seems to represent the country’s spirituality.

With less than a million inhabitants, Umbria’s population density is half that of the national average, affording ample room for individuality.  The simple pleasures of country living, surrounded by natural beauty, is enhanced with art, architecture, wonderful food and wine in nearby towns and cities throughout the two adjoining regions of Lazio and Tuscany.

Florence and Rome are within two hours drive. Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Todi and Orvieto are all closely linked. The capital city of Perugia is just 20 minutes away and offers a wealth of cultural activities that include opera and the famous Umbria Jazz festival, held every July. Other spectacular hilltop towns include Cortona and Preggio. Preggio has an annual classical music festival and the annual Montone Film Festival, which attracts an international audience.

During the summer months, open-air concerts and operas are often staged in the gardens of famous villas and palazzos that abound throughout the region.

Many tours and excursions can be organized for our guests during their stay by the Estate’s Management.

Guests have access to an 18 hole championship golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. A golf clubhouse and restaurant facilities within the same estate are only 3 minutes distance from the villa. These are accessible by golf cart through a private pathway that runs across the nature reserve. All guests have discounts on the golf green fees and at the clubhouse restaurant.

Furthermore, there are a wide range of outdoor pursuits and activities including hunting, fishing and mountain biking.

This country estate has risen majestically in the midst of the Umbrian region for more than a millennium.

Inhabited since prehistoric times, the estate has been witness to many historical events, which helped shape the Italy we know today.  Murlo is situated at the very top of a beautiful hill in the midst of Monte Elceto di Murlo and Monte Tezio. It is an easily defensible and dominant position.

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.

Event information

This farmhouse is a perfect pastoral retreat for a wedding, tucked away at the end of a winding drive in romantic countryside near Perugia within the fine landscape of Umbria’s olive groves, woods and rolling hills. Its spectacular garden is so well planted that there will always be colourful and fragrant displays of blooms for your special event. Guests will love meandering along the winding paths and stone steps amidst flower beds, herbs, hedges and olive trees. An intimate reception might be hosted inside, otherwise a spacious area of lawn by the sparkling pool transforms into a magical space for both ceremony and feasting with lights twinkling overhead as the celebrations continue into the night. Keep an eye on your friends and family though – there is an 18 hole golf course to be found just three minutes away down a path!
