Property description

Buongiorno e benvenuti! to the wonderful Villa The Tree of Life.

Enjoy complete privacy whilst staying at the villa The Tree of Life. This charming, spacious hilltop villa with fabulous pool, set in peaceful private gardens with lovely views is close to the beautiful city of Orvieto with its stunning art and architecture, history, excellent wineries and irresistible Umbrian gastronomy.

The house is all laid out over one floor and is built in the traditional Umbrian style from local tufo volcanic rock, with cool terracotta floors, wonderful open fireplace and exposed, high beamed ceilings. Al fresco dining is a must with extensive outside seating and dining space leading to the terraced pool area where you can relax on a comfortable sun lounger with a good book and a chilled glass of Prosecco.
The villa The Tree of Life is an idyllic place for a relaxing holiday and is well situated for day trips to all of the best historical cities and hill top towns in Umbria, Southern Tuscany and Northern Lazio.

Location :

The Villa and its pretty tree - lined gardens border little Lake Sugano and enjoy fine views of the Umbrian countryside with its rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves.

The villa is located just 5 miles from the wonderful art city of Orvieto, renowned the world over for its stunning Gothic cathedral and many museums. Explore the towns maze of cobbled streets, pretty churches and flower-covered piazze. Experience medieval pageants and great local food at the many restaurants and trattorias to be found across the city.

Access to the annex is through a connecting door from the dining room via another pretty furnished loggia with built in BBQ and here is a further bathroom with shower and a washing machine for guest use.
