IT1691 Villa Favola

Guardea, Umbria | Sleeps 13

Villa Favola

Villa Favola offers an exceptional holiday experience; a quirky, fairy-tale villa with air conditioning, magnificent indoor/outdoor heated pool and Spa facilities, surrounded by 24 acres of private woodland, olive groves and lush gardens overlooking the splendid forested hills of Umbria.

This property is stunning beyond words; every room has its own distinctive character, beautifully hand-crafted from wood, cheerfully reminiscent of the abundant wildlife surrounding it. The piece de resistance of this vacation villa is the indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool, just off the living area. Let yourself be lulled by the sound of the waterfall as you float in the pool or soak in the hydro-massage Jacuzzi using the chromotherapeutic lights to set the mood. The outdoors is no less inspiring, in fact the fairy-tale magic continues as you wander in search of hidden spots to relax in the sun or under the shade of century-old trees overlooking the peaceful Tiber valley. A picturesque wooden bridge connects one of the bedrooms with the garden and the dining terrace, in itself a fairy-tale grotto perfect for meals al fresco, especially with a bottle of good Italian wine!

All around the villa you have endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits and excursions. The WWF Oasis of Alviano is just a few minutes’ drive away and so is Montecchio with its Etruscan necropolis and olive oil museum. Further afield are many ancient towns boasting an incredibly rich heritage such as Amelia, Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio, Todi or Viterbo. Bomarzo’s startling gardens and Marmore waterfalls – the highest man-made waterfalls in Italy - also deserve a visit and so does the volcanic Lake Bolsena, for a relaxing day on a lake beach.
