Villa St. Ubaldo - Umbertide-Umbria

Villa - Entire home/apt · Via Bagianti, Umbertide, Umbria 06019, Italy

The Space

Villa Sant Ubaldo is a charming Medieval house in a tiny recently restored Umbrian village. It commands unrivalled views of the upper Tiber valley from Mount Subasio in the south to the Alps of the Moon in the north, and the property together with its enclosed gardens and terraces provides vistas in all directions. Its swimming pool is set in the heart of the garden and is surrounded by a broad sun patio, affording total privacy. There is a variety of places adapted for outside dining to suit each period of the day. Whilst giving the impression of being remote the house is only 2km from a small town with a full range of shops and a weekly market, and is close to the most important Umbrian art towns: Assisi, Cortona, Perugia, and San Sepolcro. Umbertide, the focus of British interest in the region, is only 7Km away. The house itself is full of traditional character yet is furnished with wifi, satellite TV throughout and fully modern services. Whether you are looking for a tranquil oasis or the perfect base for cultural exploration this property both meets expectations and surprises with hidden treasures.
Lets should be from Saturday to Saturday ; shorter lets or different starts only after negotiation.

  • We totally agree with the review of Ron.
    It was a great time for our family in August at villa Umbaldo.

    Jonathan was a wonderfull host.
    We could call him at any time with any problem (even to translate our questions for the marvelous cook Anna ).

    Anna made a delicious Umbrian meal for us (9 persons) at the Villa.
    It was an unforgettable evening for us.

    Perhaps it is an idea to write already in the discription of the villa that there is a 2km steep drive on an unpaved road to reach the house.

  • This is a large,rustic, very comfortable house that was well equipped & well located. Jonathan was an excellent host giving very comprehensive information before & during our stay & responding promptly to any issues. The house is situated at the top of a hill with magnificent views on all sides overlooking Umbria. The garden has plenty of shady spots during the day & the pool was a delight after a day of sight-seeing. It was very quiet except for the noise of the crickets!!! Both lounges -upstairs & downstairs (also can be used as the 4th bedroom) had very good home cinema systems for TV/ DVDs & music. Jonathan has a large selection of films, music & books for use. The kitchen was very well equipped including spices & oils etc as well as a welcoming bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge. Security was good together with cleaning services. We would definitely stay there again.

    This property would definitely not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems because the climb up on loose gravel from where you park the car to the front door is very steep indeed. Also the stairs down to the 3rd bedroom and the 2nd lounge/ 4th bedroom are also extremely steep.

    We were there during August when temperatures were very high. The house is made of thick stone & downstairs was comfortable. However on the main floor, the mobile, single air conditioning unit was insufficient. There was also one fan but we were under the incorrect impression that the whole house was air conditioned. The TV system in the 3rd bedroom had no cables and was not connected & could not be used.

    There is a 2km steep drive on an unpaved road to reach the house.

    The shower head downstairs needs replacing to make it more effective. The shower serving bedrooms 1 &2 is a hand held one & we were discouraged from taking baths because it used too much water.

    If you want a peaceful, fun, comfortable place to stay with easy access to Perugia, Assisi & Cortona, this is the place for you.

About
I studied in Italy 30 years ago and was glad to return to live here 13 years ago. I have published two literary companions with Italian subjects, the most recent on Umbria itself (both published by Signal Books). My love for this incredible country is fueled by its history, art, food and cultural heritage.
