Villa Candia is a 400-year-old manor house with a spectacular hillside location in Umbrian truffle country. A short drive takes you to medieval villages as well as major Umbrian cities including Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Spoleto or Orvieto. When you tire of sitting on the terrace, soaking up the sun at the infinity pool or visiting local wineries, you can easily drive to Sienna or Florence, or the beaches of the Adriatic.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: When Xavier and Tanya Candia first saw it in 2004, the 400 year old stone house had been abandoned for more than 50 years and was in ruins. Today it has been completely rebuilt using the original materials and the finest craftsmanship. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility yet close to all of Umbria and Tuscany.

Why the Owner Chose Perugia, Perugia, Italy:
It's a dream to spend your days basking in sunshine, swimming in the infinity pool overlooking the magnificent valley, or strolling through the orchards of this private, secluded, utterly peaceful ancient Italian villa. In the evening, to eat in one of the award-winning local restaurants, savoring local olive oil, truffles and wines. During the summer and autumn, to visit a fiesta or sagra in a nearby village where you can mingle with the local people and taste the best of Umbrian regional cuisine.To take the train to Florence for a day of sightseeing, or spend the day on the beaches of the Adriatic, yet be back in time for a leisurely dinner al fresco.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
This house is one of the jewels of Umbria. Situated on a dramatic hillside, it boasts spectacular views. The Olivi Suite adjoins the Vigne Suite, and together they accommodate 10 - 12 people. Two additional bedrooms in the main house are also available for rental, for a total of 14-16 people. It's the perfect spot to relax, unwind, and still be very close to all the action.
