La Solda


With its luminous, colorful interior and a remarkable art collection our latest property, La Solda, became a triumph of modern design bringing together traditional lines and exquisite taste.


La Solda was completed in June 2021. Special Umbria oversaw the construction as well as the interior design. La Solda is the conception of italian architects seeking to combine modern European design with traditional Umbrian charm. This unique location boasts breathtaking views, a high level of comfort and a modern southern European style which all come together to create an exceptional place to spend your holidays. The villa provides three double, air-conditioned, en suite bedrooms, a high-spec kitchen with top-brand appliances and myriad beautiful design features, including incredible light fittings. The Dutch owners are passionate art collectors and part of their photography collection is exhibited in their property.

Age old olive trees frame the property while stunning views stretch for miles over the surrounding hills with the Cetona mountain in the background. Clever landscaping, a lovely pool (14mx4m) and a cosy porch make it the ideal place for seamless indoor/outdoor living. Thoughtful, smart and eyecatching design throughout make this property truly stand out.

La Solda is just a stone’s throw away from Città della Pieve. A medieval town that today still exudes its genuine Italian character. Referred to as ‘the picture perfect Italian town’, Citta della Pieve is the ideal place for a nice stroll, with stunning historic buildings, lovely terraces and a wide selection of local restaurants. Click here to find more information. The small hill top town of Monteleone d'Orvieto is only a 10 minutes drive. Here we can recommend also a wide selection of top local restaurants.  

La Solda is managed exclusively by Special Umbria.

Rooms description


Bedrooms

There are three double bedrooms all positioned on the first floor, which is ground floor when entering via the front door where the parking is. All 3 airconditioned bedrooms have a shower room and wc. There is a red, a blue and a green bedroom with lovely colorful elements, old Sicilian tiles, cotton linen made up beds with quality memory mattrasses. All bedrooms overlook the valley.

Bathrooms

3 shower rooms with wc. Modern fittings and Sicilian floor tiles recalling the color of the rooms. There is a guest toilet on the ground floor as well.

Kitchen

Like the rest of the house’s interior, old and new combine in the tactile materials of this locally made stand-out kitchen in a green Farrow and Ball color and white marble on top. The island houses quality appliances, including a wine fridge and a five-burner gas hob. In the adjacent pantry, located behind the island there will be a double fridge, a sink and the dishwasher and washing machine and dryer. Cooking at La Solda will be a joyful experience, or you can sit back and relax while the Special Umbria staff do the 'hard' work for you.

Living rooms

At one end of the open-plan living space, with its traditional dark grey cotto floor and whitewashed beamed ceiling, is a large sitting area. A comfortable corner sofa in mustard color and a couple of design arm chairs make for a cosy living space, with a modern design wood-burning stove for cooler days. At the other end of the room is an old wooden farmhouse dining table with 6 Italian design chairs, or guests can dine on the terrace looking out over the rolling countryside.
