NEW FOR 2024

 

From the slender Cypresses standing sentinel along the driveway to the massive ceiling beams holding up this handsome home, Villa Forconi is the classic Italian country villa, cocooned in a fairytale Umbrian landscape. Surrounded by its own woodland, it’s beautifully secluded yet still blessed with seemingly endless views across row after row of gentle hills and as far as the central Apennines on a clear day.

Forconi’s look may be timeless, but the feel is comfortably contemporary, designed for easy holiday living and ideal for two or three couples or a family. You can spend peaceful summer days by the 12-metre long pool (gated for extra peace of mind) with lots of play space in the garden. There’s a covered dining area for enjoying all those delicious local delicacies and a very well-equipped kitchen-diner that opens onto the garden. If you are fortunate enough to visit in spring or autumn, there are hiking trails close to the villa that will take you into beautiful countryside. For a late season break, when grape-laden trailers trundle along the ‘strade bianche’ and the local markets are piled high with all manner of mushrooms, Forconi has two open fireplaces to keep the feeling cosy once the sun goes down.

Local area

Whatever time you choose to visit, this is an excellent spot for exploring Umbria and eastern Tuscany, with picturesque Lake Trasimeno nearby (8km) and the splendid restaurant Lo Scoiattolo with its extraordinary lake views just a ten-minute drive. You can hire small boats, windsurfs and canoes at Passignano Sul Trasimeno, and the immediate area around the villa is threaded with hiking trails if you prefer to explore on foot. Hilltop Cortona, walled Perugia and the wine mecca of Montepulciano are all reachable within 45 to 60 minutes by car.

Our choice of Italian properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Olive groves and vineyards, forests and flowers – there’s much to love about the abundant natural beauty of Umbria, and plenty of walking trails to help you explore it. The two most high-profile towns, Assisi and Perugia, have spiritual and cultural gravitas in equal measures, the former the erstwhile home of St Francis, who built his famous monastery there. And after a day of contemplation, in churches, galleries, museums and nature, the ‘green heart of Italy‘ will reward you with a generous feast and a glass or two of its famous wine.
