What Oliver loves…
- Amenities abound at this villa in Umbria; from the restaurant to the attentive staff, here it’s easy to customize your experience
- The views from the terrace and private pool are unforgettable - rolling hills and valleys spread out below
- Though it feels entirely rural, you're close to Pergola

Perched atop Monte Santa Croce sits a 6000 hectare family estate, where you’ll discover this exceptional villa in Umbria. Restored from the ruins of a medieval church, inside you’ll find every modern comfort. Plush furnishings and diaphanous curtains lend lightness and elegance to the heavy wooden beams overhead. Outside you’ll marvel at the 360 degree view of the valleys below, perhaps from the infinity pool perched on the edge of it all.
Here your every comfort is the staff’s concern - they can help you arrange spa services, wine tours, or provide hotel services (choose the vill’otel option to have breakfast provided!) You might take many meals at Il Caldaro, the on-site restaurant, or cook in the sweet country-style kitchen. You must dine outside on the stone terrace, where the fragrant gardens make every meal more beautiful.
Hiking, fishing, and golfing opportunities surround this holiday villa. The nearest supermarket is found in Umbertide, and not much farther is Perugia, the capital of Umbria. If you're longing for the culture and historic sites, be sure to visit this pretty town by the Tiber River; in the summer, look out for the jazz festival.

Villa la Macchia has the unique advantage of being situated in the very centre of Umbria, an area where the simple pleasures of country living embrace art, history and architecture offering wonderful food and wine in nearby towns throughout the two adjoining regions of Lazio and Tuscany.
Florence and Rome are within two hours’ drive of the Estate and Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi and Orvieto are all closeby.
The region’s capital city Perugia is just 20 minutes away and offers a wealth of cultural activities that include opera and the famous Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate festivals.
Other spectacular hilltop towns include Cortona and Preggio, the latter with its annual classical music festival, as well as the annual Montone Film Festival which attracts an international audience.
Staff on the estate also arrange wine tours, guided tours of the most beautiful towns in Umbria (all within 20-30 minutes by car from the estate), massages and beauty treatments in the villa, as well as pilates and yoga classes in villa, chefs in villa with butler and many other things.

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.

How long have you owned the property?
What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The villa is brand new just rebuilt from ruins of a medieval existing church
Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Yes, in our properties in the estate, very famous English actors and singers but they have asked not to be mentioned!!
For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do? A cooking class, a wine tasting or a romantic dinner in villa with chef and butler
Really eat? our pizza cooked in the medieval oven at the estate restaurant Il caldaro
Really see? Visit the most important towns in Umbria, very close and they are amazing
Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Visit Assisi at only 30 minutes driving! the most amazing umbrian town and so spiritual!
We have just enjoyed our third stay at Villa La Macchia and have already booked up again for next year. What a fabulous villa! Absolutely private, and with far-reaching views across the Umbrian countryside.
The staff are all really helpful - Namal on a day-to-day basis and Elisa looking after everything else. We ate several times at Il Caldaro - the restaurant on the estate. Great food and wine, very fairly priced. This year we also took advantage of the in-villa dining and wine-tasting option. Again, tasty food cooked in our villa and served efficiently in a relaxed style. We also took the trekking day. Nicoletta took us up some relatively easy trails on Monte Tezio until we could look down on our villa from the top of the hill, again enjoying sensational views.
This is a great place to unwind and quickly feel very relaxed. Sure, it's a 10-15 minute drive into Umbertide for a supermarket, but that is hardly an imposition!
Beautiful Villa with Breathtaking Vistas
We stayed at La Macchia for a few days in October. The villa was lovely and well looked after by the staff of Murlo. The views were gorgeous, the weather, misty in the morning, cleared for beautiful warm days, which we spent hiking and exploring many of the adjacent hilltop towns. Having visited previously in high summer, late October was a pleasant surprise, and we will definitely return.
La Macchia Villa: A Commanding View of Umbria
We recently concluded a week's stay at the magnificent Villa La Macchia. It sits at the top of the ridge and offers a panoramic view of the mountains and valleys of Umbria. The villa itself is beautifully appointed, comfortable, and well-equipped. It's one of those rare occasions when the actual beauty of the place exceeds the promise of the glossy brochures.
We were very pleased with the attention of the staff both before and during our visit. Elisa and Carlotta were always prompt and responsive, and helped plan activities for our group. They helped us arrange a trek to the cross atop nearby Monte Tezio. As no one in our group would be mistaken for an alpinist, I was concerned for our safety. We were provided, however, with not one but two guides (Maurizio and Enzo), who not only guided us but carried water and a picnic lunch, which we enjoyed at the top. Our exertions were rewarded by a wonderful BBQ (read: a delicious array of Umbrian pork products) at Il Caldaro, which was included in the price of the hike. We had several other fine meals at Il Caldaro, the restaurant on the estate, and enjoyed the attention of their gracious and attentive staff. We also took part in a fun and interesting cooking class directed by the head chef at Il Caldaro, with the amiable and omnipresent Maurizio providing additional instruction and commentary.
With all there is to do and see in Umbria, it's easy to overlook that Villa La Macchia is also the ideal place to do absolutely nothing. One of our best days there was a rainy day spent reading, napping, and listening to the wind in the trees. It's hard to imagine a more relaxing and tranquil spot.
We are eager to return to this extraordinary villa. We will be back!
Dream Holidays in Umbria
Together with friends we stayed at Villa La Macchia.The Villa and the surrounding property is just gorgeous. Any additional description would be superfluous.
This is the place where you want to go when you want to have full privacy, a quite - and remote - place (atop of a hill) and simply a marvellous, incredibly beautiful panorama in front of you.
Carlotta and Eliza always have taken care for our requests almost "within seconds".
