About this listing
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.

About the Host, Jonathan Thomas
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.
