Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are an American couple Cliffe Raymond and Betsy Fenik who love Italy and especially Umbria. In the United States we own a manufacturing company and make parts for boats. Cliffe is an avid cyclist and loves riding both in Italy and here in Rhode Island. I am a photographer and am very lucky to spend lots of time making pictures all over Italy and New England.

Why the Owner Chose Umbertide:
We vacationed in Umbria and fell in love with the people, the countryside, the food, the wine and the pace of life. We hope to retire there someday, but in the meantime we are happy to share our little piece of heaven on earth with those who want to slow down and really enjoy life. Our home is a bit remote, but that is exactly what makes it the perfect get-away. Its position up the mountain affords you spectacular views and plenty of peace while its nearness to town (15 minutes) enables you to enjoy dining out and other activities. If sightseeing is what you like Casa d’Oliva is situated near to all the “hill towns” of Umbria and Tuscany. Easy day trips include Cortona, Assisi, Gubbio, Pienza, Montefalco and Florence is a 1 hour 20 minute train ride away.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Eat breakfast under the ivy covered pergola or on the balcony. Spend the day sunning and swimming at the pool. Enjoy a catered dinner on the patio. Please stop and smell the roses. Feel free to pick them too. Enjoy all the flowers here and be sure to use the herbs in the pots on the patio for delicious, fresh pasta dishes. Make sure to be up at the pool each evening for a beautiful sunset. On a clear night lie out on the pump house roof and watch for shooting stars. Enjoy the sounds of the country; the cuckoo, crickets, song birds. At night you can hear the frogs and birds. Slow down, take your time, experience everything here. Italy runs on slow time. So should you when on holiday.
