About the Property
5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms
• Please NOTE: While we welcome all families and PRIVATE groups of friends traveling to our beautiful area, we do not rent the villa as a base for third party, commercial activities of any type.
The Villa is a perfect base to explore Rome, Spoleto, Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Civita di Bagnoregio, Lake Bolsena and the Mediterranean Sea. In addition there are innumerable other art cities, quaint hilltowns, and naturalistic and archaeological sites, all within half an hour to one hour distance from the Villa. Florence is two hours away by train, and within day trip range.
Our Villa is situated in a panoramic and peaceful position that is extremely well connected by the main A1 freeway and central train system that runs north and south through the Italian peninsula.
The very spacious villa (3.500 SQFT) with three + levels comfortably accommodates 8 people with three double and two single bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. It is also wonderfully spacious for just a couple, with open verandas on every side to choose from to optimize the views and lighting any time of day.
The Villa is furnished, entirely floored with terracotta tiles, and finished with hand-painted ceramic tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms. Le Terrae has all the warmth and comfort to make you feel at home.
A spacious round staircase in the heart of the villa features an architecturally designed and fine crafted spiral wrought iron handrail, painted in a Mediterranean shade of blue, comfortably linking the three levels.
The first floor has a spacious living room with a sofa, and a great 11-foot long antique table for unforgettable celebrations. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with a second smaller dining table, two bedrooms (one double and one single) and one bathroom with shower.
The second floor has a living area complete with a fireplace, couches, and a table ideal for quiet activities, games, telecommuting, or opening a big map to study the area for the next day’s adventures. The large room opens up onto the covered, furnished terraces with many colorful flower pots. From the terraces, and along the full perimeter of the villa, are open views of the surrounding landscape and garden, with roses, jasmines, lilacs and lavenders.
Villa Le Terrae is unique in that it has large living spaces and yet it also has many cozy niches perfect for those wanting some individual time.
On the third floor three bedrooms: a master suite with king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with tub, one room with double bed (or two twins, depending on the guest’s preferences), one room with small double bed (European size), and a bathroom with shower. The enchanting views from the windows open to the lush landscape of the Cimini Mountains and the rolling hills of Umbria. The choruses of birds in the adjacent hazel nut orchards and vineyards provide a delightful background completing this idyllic vision.
On the large and completely private and enclosed 5 acres property, there is a wonderful centuries old oak, that is among the largest ones in the area. Beneath this monumental oak is a very large table for al fresco dining, and an adjacent bocce-ball court. Closer to the villa, an outdoor traditional wood oven to cook fantastic bread, pizzas, or locally raised whole roasted chicken with potatoes dressed in the centuries old fashion of the local farmers.
The whole Villa is rented undivided, with no other buildings on its grounds. In addition to being a tremendous value, Le Terrae is spacious, light-filled, elegant, and full of carefully designed architectural details.
“Italy is a dream worth returning to for the rest of your life” – Le Terrae is the perfect vision of a villa for that dream!
