Overview of Villa Montone

What Oliver loves…

  • This villa in Umbria is 5 minutes from Montone, a pretty medieval village.
  • The 5 acres of gardens (including olive groves) provide a magnificent level of privacy, all with commanding countryside views.
  • An additional guest house that sleeps 4 is available to rent if your party is larger!

What you should know…

  • The swimming pool is unheated, and therefore only open from May through September.

This classic, square farmhouse villa in Umbria overlooks a dreamy landscape, a flawless illustration of why Umbria is called the “Green Heart of Italy”. A pergola stands apart from the house, perched, it seems, on the edge of the world. Here you can take your meals overlooking lush countryside melting into mountains in the distance. Follow the footpath down through the woods to the stream, where you might meet a local hunting for truffles.

Inside, modern comforts meet old stone details, archways and walls from another time. Each bedroom has the benefit of a private en suite bathroom, with bright new fixtures and pretty tiling. A washer, dryer, and updated kitchen make this holiday villa like home, only transported to the Italian countryside. Be sure to step outside at night...the stars shine brilliantly in the darkness.

The nearest village with all the necessary markets is Montone, a 5 minute drive from your family villa. You’ll find it’s easy to get around the region; within a 30 minute drive you can arrive at Sansepolcro, Gubbio, and Perugia. The shores of Lake Trasimeno are under an hour away. Though it's tempting to stay at the villa, don't miss Umbria's many sights!

Nearby there is a covered pergola for dining al fresco, and a path leading down to the swimming pool and poolhouse. Behind and in front of the house are mature olive groves. At the rear of the guest house is a footpath which descends through an oak forest to a stream below. You may occasionally meet locals looking for truffles or out hunting. From the terrace buzzards can be seen circling overhead and on summer evenings fireflies dart around. Light pollution is minimal and the sky is awash with stars.

Map, Location & Local Information

Umbria and neighbouring regions provide sightseeing opportunities to suit all tastes and interests. The geographic location of Montone in central Italy means that guests are never very far away from a large number of places of interest. Whether it is architecture, history, ruins, art or scenery, the interests of visitors will never be disappointed in this part of Italy.

Guests should do some research using one of the many available guide books on Umbria, Tuscany and Marche. There are guidebooks and tourist information pamphlets in the bookcase and visitors' packet which are excellent sources of information.

Shops, markets and supermarkets
There is a greengrocer and butcher (Macelleria) near the main square in Montone. In addition, in the direction of the Corlo valley there is a small food shop (Alimentare) and a baker (Forno). A weekly market is held in the car parking areas by the fortress and in the main square, Piazza Matteotti, in Umbertide every Wednesday morning. Produce includes fresh fruits, vegetables, hams, cheeses and other local specialties.

In Umbertide, the main square and adjoining streets have a variety of shops catering for most needs. English language newspapers can be purchased from about 10:00 am daily either at kiosks in the main square or beside the Station bar on Via Garibaldi.

There are also two supermarkets suitable for larger shopping expeditions: 
-  Co-op, in the Centro commerciale "Fratta" on Via Rodolfo Morandi. This is a handy little shopping centre with a number of shops, lots of car parking space and a good Pizza al taglio (take away).
-  Conad, on Via Martiri della Liberta. This has several shops which include a good fresh pasta shop and delicatessen.

In general, the shops in nearby towns will meet most day to day needs. There is a Hypermarket just off the E45 near Perugia at Colestrada (drive past the turning for Perugia Airport/San Egidio, follow the bend round and take the far right hand lane to the access road for the shopping complex). Facilities include a huge co-op, electronics, clothes and shoe shops as well as restaurants and bars.

Local restaurants
There are many excellent restaurants in the local area. The best are listed below, organised by location. There are also many good restaurants worth trying in the wider area. Guests will find cards and directions in the Caicresce visitor's folder as well as on the sightseeing page. Any new restaurant finds or comments that guests would like to add to the visitors' pack for the benefit of other guests would be appreciated.
