Santa Lucia nestles in a hillside looking across to the pretty village of Lippiano and offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The 'Casa Colonica' (traditional farmhouse) is the perfect sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Set in beautifully tended gardens stocked with abundant lavender, rosemary, vines and fruit trees (figs and plums), the entire house, pool and gardens are completely private to, and for the sole use of each booking. A haven of relaxation.

Stedet
Santa Lucia is a special place that successfully manages to combine charming rural retreat with all modern conveniences. Whether you prefer the character of a roaring log fire on a chilly evening or need some respite from the heat with air-conditioning, these and more are available to you.

Our heartfelt wish is that our guests feel at home in Santa Lucia and enjoy the charm and character of this special part of Italy as much as we do. Help yourselves to the fruit, herbs etc in the garden, take a book from the shelf in the hall and relax at the poolside pergola, have some fun baking pizza in the original bread/pizza oven and feast in the extensive, covered dining area overlooking the rolling hills, but above all relax and unwind.

Although located in the district of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, the official address is a bit of a misnomer as Santa Lucia's closest neighbour is the pretty hilltop village of Lippiano.

Santa Lucia is set out on two separate levels (separate entrances) with guests having use of the entire top level (the bottom level is closed and, don’t worry, no one will be staying there! We just store all our family items there). In keeping with its heritage, the house has been sympathetically restored and retains its rustic charm. High, wooden-beamed rooms with white-washed walls give a wonderful feeling of airiness and the view from every window draws you into the glorious rural landscape.

The guest accommodation consists of 3 air-conditioned, double bedrooms (one of which is en suite and also has a safety deposit box) with wrought iron beds and mosquito nets. All bedroom windows are also fitted with mosquito screens. An armchair bed (for an extra person) is available in the living area, if required. The accommodation also includes a family bathroom with walk-in shower, WC, bidet and WHB, a very well-equipped kitchen that includes dishwasher, four-ring electric hob and oven, toaster, espresso machine, filter coffee machine, kettle and magic bullet blender, a large living room with air-conditioning, traditional open fireplace (and an impressive wood pile!) and finally a dining room leading to terrace with extendable canopy and beautiful, comfortable seating for 6-8. This terrace area is the perfect spot to relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and read a book while taking in the gorgeous views across the hills. The beauty of this spot is that if by any chance it starts to drizzle, you don't need to move indoors. You can happily sink back into the sofa and listen to the raindrops bouncing off the canopy overhead. We particularly love if there's thunder and lightning...grab a rug, put your feet up, relax and enjoy the spectacle!

The property also has a separate, laundry room with washing machine and sink, accessed to the right of the pizza oven area.

We are especially proud of the covered outdoor dining area/pergola in the garden (accessed via a walkway from the pool area) that takes advantage of the beautiful views across the hills. This accommodates 10 plus and has lighting for night-time dining as well as being a peaceful and comfortable spot for a siesta. There is also a third outdoor dining area (picnic bench seating 8) in the side garden, close to the pizza oven.

Please note the air-conditioning also heats the rooms in cooler weather.

The villa is surrounded on all sides by lovely landscaped gardens filled with mature lavender, rosemary and bay plants, roses, vines and fruit trees (figs and plums).

The enclosed, private pool area (with gate that should be kept closed) to the rear of the house, reached via a short flight of stone steps, features sun terraces, a poolside pergola with cushioned seating for six, numerous sun loungers, sun umbrellas, other seating and a poolside shower. There is a linked walkway between this area and the large outdoor dining area. The pool is 12 meters long and is treated with salt and NOT chlorine. The villa and pool area have spectacular views of Lippiano across the Umbrian hills. Please note that the pool is closed from 1st October to the 30th April.

One of the most charming features of the house is its very own original wood-fired bread/pizza oven built into the outside walls. If your sense of adventure (or patience) doesn't extend to building a fire to get this going, there is also a large Weber BBQ for outdoor cooking. Indoors a very wide selection of English books and DVDs cover every genre for adults and children and there is a smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime (you will need your own log in details. For security reasons we don’t have a designated account set up for the house). There are also a selection of board games. For those needing to keep in touch with the outside world, the house has WiFi and multiple USB charging sockets for devices (in all bedrooms, either side of the beds, and living area).

Although check-out time is 12 noon, we will make every effort to facilitate guests who wish to remain beyond noon on their departure day. Please just let us know if you need to stay longer.

Nærområdet

Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Umbria, Italia

The villa has the benefit of being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and yet does not feel isolated due to the farmhouses and villas that dot the surrounding hills and thanks to the view across to the hilltop village of Lippiano. This area is a hillwalker's paradise with many signed routes including one that runs directly along the laneway at the side of the villa. Nearest shops/supermarkets/restaurants in Monterchi (4.5km/2.7miles), Anghiari (14km/8.7miles). The two commercial centres of Citta di Castello (in Umbria) and Sansepolcro (Tuscany) are 14km/8.5miles and 20km/12.5miles away respectively.

Born in Ireland of an Irish father and German mother, I have a particular love of Italy thanks to spending my childhood summers at my German grandfather's home on the shores of Lago Maggiore in Northern Italy. I love eating good food, cooking good food, writing and choral singing. I love rummaging in antique shops and markets and like staying in places that are quirky and individual and away from crowds. Above all I love spending time with my family (husband and 3 daughters), my animals (a lovable collie/springer mix and 2 cats - George and Mildred) and a pot of tea!
