Exclusive Tuscan vacation villa with pool and views – Villa Idillio is a beautifully restored farmhouse right on the border of Tuscany and Umbria, and within a short walk of an excellent restaurant. The stunning panoramic views over undulating hills, the inviting pool, the lovely gardens and the pergolas where you can relax and dine well into the evening, enjoying the warm Italian climate and an unspoilt night sky … these are some of the memories you will take home with you from a holiday in this enchanting spot.

The accommodation is spread across the main villa and the totally independent annex. Both buildings offer rooms full of light which have been tastefully furnished to reflect modern tastes whilst retaining the character of the location – you know you are in the heart of Italy here. The emphasis is on ease of living, on tranquillity and on a relaxed pace of life, so if you are looking to unwind, this would make a good base. And once you have recharged your batteries there is plenty to see and do - including a game of tennis at the local private club which is available for guests staying at Villa Idillio and is an easy 1.5km walk away.

Locally, you have the little town of Umbertide, where there are plenty of good restaurants and shops, and markets on Saturday & Wednesday mornings. As well as catering for the tourist trade this is also a working town, so if you want to experience everyday, authentic Italy, this is a place you will appreciate. Beautiful ancient towns and cities such as Cortona, Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Siena would all make excellent day trips from Villa Idillio. Instead of driving, why not take the frequent and inexpensive train service from Umbertide to Perugia? You also have the lake beaches, watersports and boat trips at Lake Trasimeno, should you fancy a change of pace.  After a busy day out, park your car back at the house and spend an undemanding evening at the superb restaurant just a short stroll from the villa, before heading back home for a nightcap under the stars … bliss.
