A three-bedroom luxury villa in the historical town of Spello. The Casa Giardino (Garden House) is nestled amid old town walls and offers incredible views on the valley and hills below. Its central location means guests can walk to restaurants, and yet feel like they are in the heart of rural Umbria. Inside, the villa is fresh and contemporary, furnished with pieces from around the world. Attention to detail and an eclectic mix of styles give the villa a character and warmth rarely found in a holiday home.
Umbria enjoys an excellent climate and life is mostly lived outdoors. Eating, reading and relaxing are favourite pastimes after a long day spent exploring the region. The Garden House offers the ideal setting: a lawn with inviting loungers and vintage garden furniture, the shade of the trees, a small natural stone swimming pool, an open-air kitchen with gas stove and sink, and a lounge sofa with comfortable cushions. Forget noises and traffic and enjoy the vast beauty of the Italian landscape.
This smartly designed room features a kitchen and dining area with a table for eight, and a lounging area with a plush sofa lined with aged linen. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking a good meal. Hidden behind an antique door is a flat-screen satellite TV. The floors are in soft grey tones offset by the room’s green accents.
A small staircase leads up to the master bedroom, with its marvellous views of the garden and surrounding landscape. The king-size bed is by Minotti, the curtains are made from delicate Indian cotton, and a lovely Moroccan rug warms the floor. The en-suite bathroom is modern and elegant with twin rain showers, toilet and bidet.
BLUE ROOM FROM THE GARDEN
The Yellow Room is on the lower garden level, down broad stone steps. This is a lovely, serene room with a king-size bed by Flou and charming side tables by Gervasoni. Yellows and greens compete for attention with mementos brought from Laos, Cambodia and Burma. The room has a complete bathroom with shower and toilet.
The Casa Giardino is not suitable for small children as the rooms are not connected. The Kitchen and Living area is on the first floor, the master bedroom is on the mezzanine, the Blue and Yellow rooms are accessible only from the garden. Perfect setting for families with teenagers or for a group of friends, as every room has its private entrance and plenty of privacy.
