Overlooking a lush green valley in the north of Umbria, this charming medieval farmhouse in the grounds of a luxurious country estate truly ticks all of the boxes. 

The main house and additional cottage can accommodate 12 guests in elegant surroundings. This 600-year-old home has been recently renovated, yet retains period features and bags of character. Your party can enjoy meals together in the grand dining room or play some games in the games room and later on retreat to the privacy of the lovely bedrooms. There are six bedrooms in the main house and the cottage, plenty of space for a special family holiday or for friends to travel together. Your stay will be made even more comfortable with all the modern conveniences you could require, including Wi-Fi, air conditioning in all bedrooms and smart TVs. 

The villa is nestled in spacious, landscaped gardens which is gated for extra security. Take a swim in the L- shaped infinity pool or relax in the shade of the olive trees with the smell of the lavender in the air. The garden also has a number of places you can eat alfresco and a Weber barbecue to cook up a delicious meal.

Villa Petroia is situated within the grounds of an extensive country golf estate, meaning there is a wealth of things to do right on your doorstep. There are 500- hectares of grounds to explore which are covered in walking and cycling routes, fantastic golfing facilities, and a great restaurant. 

If you need to nip out for some groceries or a bite to eat then there are a number of shops, eateries and even vineyards within a 5km radius of the villa, dotted around the surrounding hills. There are also many villages and towns to visit nearby, one example is Umbertide which is 16km away. This historic town is easy to walk around and has shops, restaurants, impressive buildings and pretty piazzas. There is a museum and gallery in town and also a fascinating octagonal church, at just over 15-minutes away by car this is a handy place to have nearby. 

Perugia, Umbria’s capital, is also just 20km away from the villa, close enough to visit a number of times if you wish. Visit the walled city for Gothic palaces, stunning churches, museums and charming cobbled streets filled with artisan shops and places to eat. 

It is also possible to visit the beaches of Lago Trasimeno which is 25km away and the amazing city of Siena which is 110km away.

Set within a brilliant golf estate in the Umbrian countryside, you have everything you need for a relaxing holiday just a stone’s throw away from the villa.

Golf lovers will be in paradise here as there is a spectacular 18-hole course, club house, driving range and bar which are open to guests and you will even find clubs waiting for you in the villa. 

As well as golfing, there are also countless hiking trails and bicycle routes from which you can discover the gorgeous countryside. There is even a much-loved restaurant housed in a former castle where you can try authentic Umbrian dishes. 

The beautiful city of Perugia is just 20km away, so you can spend the holiday relaxing by the pool on some days and exploring this thriving city on others. Wander amidst the lovely pastel-hued streets of this walled-city which has not changed much in hundreds of years. The striking Palazzo dei Priori is a must-see 13th century palace which is located within the Piazza IV Novembre which is the main square filled with breath-taking architecture to take in over a coffee. Perugia has countless churches, museums and galleries to visit so you may want to go a few times. It is also known for two rather different festivals; the Jazz festival in July and the chocolate festival in October. If you like the sound of the chocolate festival then why not visit the chocolate factory where you can take a chocolate-making class or just enjoy the samples. 

Gubbio is also a great place to see while in Umbria, 40km away, this is the oldest village in the area and known as the jewel of this region. The Palazzo dei Consoli and the Basilica of Sant’ Ubaldo are just some of the attractions on offer. If you stop for something to eat you are sure to find some of the locally found truffles on the menu as they are used in many dishes. 

Another unmissable town is Assisi which is 46km away from the villa. The birthplace of Saint Francis of Assisi and a UNESCO World Heritage site, there is lots to see here and in the surrounding countryside.  The Basilica di San Francesco can be seen for miles around and is the star attraction though there is plenty more to discover as you wander around. Visit in the evening to see the historic buildings beautifully lit up and dine in a romantic trattoria.

One of the most stunning cities in Italy; Siena is 110km away. Home to the spectacular Duomo di Siena and with the Piazza del Campo at its heart, Siena is a must-visit if you are in this region, especially as the drive takes under 90 minutes.
