Bellaria


The old-school charm of this large farmhouse melds beautifully with 21st century comfort and design. The deep pool, brick arches, repurposed materials and beautiful styling put the cool into retro.


Following a thorough restoration and redesign in 2016 by the Special Umbria team, the cotto floors and wooden beams of red-brick Bellaria were brought bang up-to-date with carefully sourced furniture and artwork. The generous proportions and the modern interiors combine to create a perfect property to share with friends and family.
The five spacious en suite bedrooms, the generous reception rooms and the high-tech kitchen are all elegantly styled and perfectly equipped. There is floor cooling throughout for long, hot summers, as well as a wood-burning stove for the cooler months.
Ideally located close to Lake Trasimeno, as well as an indulgent glut of stunning medieval towns and villages, there are myriad distractions close by if the house itself, the stunning pool and the large garden aren’t enough to keep you entertained.

Rooms description


Bedrooms

Ground floor The super-king size double with en suite shower has private access to the garden. The corner sofa in the TV room can be converted into two single beds, ideal for two children or young adults. First floor The spacious master bedroom has a super-king size bed, sofa and desk and access to the large terrace with a seating area and dining table. The en suite has a separate shower and bath. There are two further king doubles on this floor, as well as a twin room, all with en suite shower rooms. All the rooms have high-beamed ceilings, cotto floors and deeply comfortable mattresses.

Bathrooms

All the bedrooms are en suite. The showers have resin floors and walls, while the basins are backed with beautiful artisanal tiles.

Kitchen

The kitchen at Bellaria is at the heart of the house, looking out over the garden and pool from the two large arched double doors. With soft, muted colours, top-of-the-range equipment and a sleek design with a central island and plenty of work counters and storage, this is a large, dreamy space, ideal for collaborative cooking. For coffee aficionados, there is a Bezzera espresso machine with a separate grinder.

Living rooms

The clever interior styling at Bellaria makes the most of the large spaces, retaining a cosy feel while ensuring there is enough room for all guests. The main living area has a vast, lounge-style corner sofa, comfortable armchairs and stylish floor pouffes. The modern woodburning stove keeps things cosy in the cooler months. The light-filled dining room, just a couple of steps from the kitchen, has a large oak table that comfortably seats 12, while round the corner is the library and TV room. A colourful corner sofa here can sleep two young adult guests, if needed, while the array of beautiful books and the large satellite TV add to the relaxing vibe.

Other rooms

On the ground floor there is a laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a games room with table tennis and a punch bag.

Outside

As with the interior of the property, the garden mixes old with new to great effect. The elegant pool has a paved surround backed by lavender beds, with sun loungers and parasols and views across the lawn to the fields and hills beyond. A wisteria-clad terrace in the middle of the house’s rear façade enjoys the same views and is an ideal spot for al fresco meals with a dining table for 12 and a Weber BBQ.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request

  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
