About Samantha Sears
Building the house in Italy has been a long term dream, mainly as a way of friends and family getting together (they are spread around the world). We wanted to create something special enough so that they felt that their holiday was not just about meeting old friend but a really memorable holiday at the same time. My wife (lawyer) and I (CEO in IT) have a 4 year old and we spend as much time in Italy as we can. The idea of the rental for us is to cover the cost of maintaining the house and to have continual life in the place (empty houses seem to me to slowly die). We have tried to make this house without compromise as it is where we want to spend our time.
Samantha Sears purchased this villa in 2002
Why Samantha Sears chose Montone
The views are stunning. The house is private (only house on its own private road) but near enough to a truly beautiful medieval village (Montone is 1.5 miles) to be able to pop in for an aperitif or for lunch in one of 3 really good restaurants. We get over 250 days a year of sunshine but still get a pleasant breeze in summer so it never gets unbearable. The house is located near to really interesting places that we love to visit (Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Siena, Florence, Cortona etc etc) and we have been so welcomed by the locals that it feels a very special place. Italy is stunning (ridiculously so), friendly with wonderful food and stunning wine. All pretty perfect really.
What makes this villa unique
Firstly as you drive up to the house time changes. Watches seem to stop and relaxation happens instantly. The house is built to be beautiful but functional. We found most Italian properties to be cluttered and dark. We have built something open and light but still with the classic Italian structure. The pool is beautiful. The horizon edge means whilst in it all you can see is the mountains and valley in the distance. Although there are all the facilities you could wish for in the area you don't need to move (at all).
