Property description

Set on a one-acre grassy knoll at the edge of a small village, Villa Antoinette offers privacy, comfort and convenience in true Umbrian style. Come to relax poolside as you plan your daily excursions to the medieval town of Orvieto, or nearby Todi, Spoleto, Assisi, Viterbo or even Rome -- a wonderful day trip. After your adventures, return to a well-equipped kitchen to prepare a wonderful meal (there is a library including local cook books!) or delight in local fare at one of the many restaurants down the road.

This is a family home which has been offered for rental only recently, to much acclaim. There is an outdoor grill/pizza oven for cooking during the warmer summer months as well. Eat outdoors under the flowering pergola, or on the patio. Or, take your meals in the formal dining area or casual breakfast room. The well-appointed bedrooms have quality mattresses and linens, and baths are well-designed and modern for your convenience. Decor employs local tiles and materials right down to the tufa surrounding the pool -- the local stone. This is your home in Italy!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am of Italian origin and love the country, the people, the food and wine, and just about everything else about this beautiful land! We stay in our home every other year and rent it out as much as possible to share this extraordinary place. Watch the sun rise and hear birds outside the master bedroom window your first morning. Tiptoe downstairs and brew a fresh espresso for your morning cappuccino, which you will enjoy on the terrace while you read Marcella Hazan or a classic mystery from our well-stocked library. You won't want to leave.

Why the Owner Chose Orvieto:
The community of Torre San Severo is not just your average Umbrian village. The people are warm and friendly, yes, but there is a special closeness you feel here and a sense of a tight-knit community that attracts visitors to their local events year round.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A walk into the village, a visit to the Saturnia hot sulphur springs, a visit to the archeo park to see Etruscan tombs thousands of years old and roads hand carved from the rock! Or, relax by the pool, read a good book and plan how you are going to make pizza in our outdoor brick oven!
