Casale Santa Maria is a beautiful Country House in Umbria, transformed into a Villa 15 years ago by a famous English mime and choreographer; this ancient XVth century monastic structure still bears the original icon cross on its roof.
Built on a hilltop, this astonishing Villa is surrounded by a 1,5 hectares of private garden and lawns.
The property has a beautiful swimming pool (13x6m) with great view on Umbria country hills, sorrounded by lawns and olive trees.
A private parking area inside the property entrance can host up to 10 cars.
The garden also host a tree house built by the current owners for their grandchildrens, a small “calcetto” soccer field and a nice BBQ place.
The Villa is almost 500 sq.mtrs. and can host up to 12 people in its two floors.
On the main floor, there is a large entrance, main living room with large fireplace, sofas and TV set, a separated dining room (12 seated), and a large fully equipped kitchen with patio (12 seated also outside). Still, on the main floor there are 2 twin bedrooms with one full bathroom and a small toilet with basin. On the same level there is a very large internal play room (approx. 100 sqm.) with table tennis, a piano and several games for the rainy days.
On the first floor there is the master bedroom with 'baldacchino' bed and in-suite bathroom, 2 queen size double bedrooms, 1 twin (bulk) double bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen (equipped) and a large living room with fireplace.

I live in Rome with my family (my wife and 3 kids) and 8 dogs. I studied abroad UCLA and Columbia University. Sport, travelling and movies are my major interests.
My father in law bought this house several years ago from the famous coreographer Lindsey Kemp. We use the house for family reunion and holidays with your friends.
MASSIMO PAVOLINI purchased this villa in 1999
It is the perfect place for family reunion and big groups.
The pool, the house on the tree, the little soccer field and the play room makes this villa absolutely wonderful for your kids.
At your arrival we will welcome you with lasagnas, wine and seasonal fruits.
ruly unique villa with great location ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We stayed in August 2016 - our fourth villa holiday in the region. Two families with a mix of young and older children. The house is majestic, tastefully fitted out with all modern conveniences and lots of old world comfort and some nice touches of retro design. All the rooms and beds were very comfortable and we barely noticed the motorway 600 meters south of the house. The Vistas are really peaceful and comforting. We loved the salt water pool and made full use of the villa's location to visit the plethora of little cities and cultural beauties. We hired the cook for two evenings which just made for a great and peaceful start to the holiday. The owner is highly responsive and very, very easy to deal with and goes out of his way to be helpful. Two minor points - wifi was not that great (not that we really cared!) and the house book could use a tad of updating regarding local restaurants. Overall such a pleasant home and great location. We simply loved it and highly recommend it! Date of arrival 30 July 2016
