Le More Christmas

Tucked seamlessly among the Umbrian hills, Le More is a calm and joyful celebration of exquisite natural materials and exemplary style

If the Christmas holidays are about gathering together friends and family, then there is no better place to do so than at Le More. A modern interior, inspired by Italy, Scandinavia and the Sixties, is wrapped inside a traditional exterior of local stone, creating an elegant retreat for ten, perfect for festive fun and frolics.

The main house sleeps six in three large en-suite bedrooms, while the separate guest house has another two, equally big and exquisitely comfortable en-suite bedrooms. Natural materials including oak and marble, specially commissioned artwork and furniture, as well as meticulously designed lighting, come together in rooms so beautiful, you’ll want to add them to your Christmas list. This being Italy, delicious food will fuel your festivities and there’s even a prep kitchen for you or a chef to use, while underfloor heating, a woodburning stove and big squishy sofas will keep you toasty warm and cosy.

The Christmas holidays are the perfect time to explore Umbria’s beautiful hilltop towns, with their restaurants, art galleries, markets and music-filled churches. Make Le More your home for a week of festive joy.

Rooms description


There are three large en-suites on the first floor of the main house and two more in the guest house, which has a separate entrance. Similarly decorated in soft, earthy tones that reflect the rural surroundings, there are linen curtains and external shutters, exceptionally comfy beds with upholstered headboards and bedside lights by DCW Editions. All the bedrooms have Sonos sound systems and the ones in the main house have oak floors while the ones in the guest house are smooth resin. In the main bedroom, the stunning ceiling light is by 101CPH, and there is a small library wall and a handsome as well as handy writing desk.


Each of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower room that combines high-performance fixtures and fittings from Bongio and GSE, with stunning geometric tiles from Trapani in Sicily that were specially made for the house. Some of the sinks are made from concrete and the oval mirrors in the green bathroom are from Cielo.
There is a guest toilet on the ground floor and one under the pool, too.


The amazing kitchens at Le More will inspire cooks and aesthetes alike. The main kitchen is part of the broken-plan ground floor, extending beyond the dining area and featuring a 4.5 metre-long oak island with a white marble top. Midway along one wall, sliding doors reveal a further, large, side kitchen with beautiful oak cabinetry and a big butcher’s block-style island. Expertly equipped with a big, freestanding Smeg double oven, all of the essentials are in duplicate, including: fridges, freezers, dishwashers and sinks. The top-level appliances include a KitchenAid mixer, ice cube maker, ice cream maker and a pasta machine, and there are cookbooks galore to pore over. Special Umbria is able to arrange a private chef on request.

Living rooms

The ground floor of the main house is spacious and calm. The big sitting room, dining area and kitchen are separate but flow into each other through vast openings, anchored by a beautiful, smooth resin floor throughout. The dining area has a 3.5 metre-long wood table and curved back chairs from AndTradition, lit by a pair of Japanese-style pendants from Forestier. In the sitting room, a cool nod to the Sixties is achieved through beautiful dark wood baton boiserie, a specially commissioned curved sofa, and a pair of Sixties Swedish designer armchairs. The vast TV and corner fireplace create a cosy place to relax.

Other rooms

On the ground floor there is a separate laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a separate guest toilet. The hallway is home to a huge painting by Italian artist Giuliano Cardello. The colours used in the artwork form much of the house’s interior palette. There is also an impressive round table from Miniforms and a collection of handmade crochet lamps by Hamimi in Morocco that form a functional art piece in the stairwell. Each piece in the house has been carefully chosen to enhance the experience of staying here.

The property sits in a hectare of fenced garden and woodland. Mature oak trees provide natural shade and the planting scheme was designed to provide colour and fragrance as an opener to the incredible views that stretch over the valley towards Lake Trasimeno. The beautiful veranda at the front of the house has a large wooden dining table with Hay Palisade chairs, lit by concrete pendant lights by Karman. The green flexes give the impression of the lights floating, a perfect example of the sort of design details that help make this property so special. There is a gas BBQ here, too, and an outside sink next to the kitchen. Le More has different garden ‘rooms’, which are cleverly lit at night, where guests can sit and relax. Beautiful curved stone steps lead down to the heated pool (12mx6m) that sits below the house. It’s surrounded by sunbeds from Emu with parasols for shade and a squishy corner sofa under a pergola at one end. There is a toilet next to the pool. There is an electric gate at the entrance to Le More, plenty of space to park cars, and an electric vehicle charging point.


Le More enjoys a private, tranquil setting, without being remote. In the Villa you will find the soap, shampoo and shower gel exclusively produced in Umbria and composed by bio agriculture and essential oils.

What to do and where to go

The world's biggest Christmas tree in Gubbio

Gubbio takes Christmas seriously, not least by lighting up the world's largest tree featuring thousands of multi-coloured bulbs that twinkle over the town from Mount Ingrino. Gubbio itself, an ancient medieval town famous for its Roman ruins and historic aqueduct, hosts delightful attractions and events for both young and old. Discover Christmas Land, the fantastic markets, the tree - which was ratified by Guinness World Records as the world's biggest Christmas tree in 1991, 3D images on the façade of the Palazzo dei Consoli, the ferris wheel, the nativity cribs tucked away in the town's pretty streets, and much, much more.

Concerts and the nativity in Assisi

At the start of December every year, Assisi and its surrounding villages come alive with the sights and sounds of Christmas and this year will have particular resonance since it is the 800th anniversary of St Francis' first nativity scene.

A rich programme of events combines history, tradition and spirituality with a message of hope for the future, paying particular attention to environmental sustainability. The Town is decorated with Christmas trees and puts on spectacular light displays, Christmas markets, concerts and nativity scenes that offer a moving immersive experience. 

Perugia's Christmas market

Perugia's Christmas market can be found in Rocca Paolina, the university town's 16th-century Renaissance fortress. Not as big as other European markets but the biggest of its type in Umbria, its comfortable size makes it the perfect place to find delicious food and drinks, as well as beautiful artisanal presents.

Additional stalls can be found throughout Perugia’s historic centre, including in Piazza Italia and Piazza Matteotti, while the main street, Corso Vannucci, is strung with twinkling lights and there's even an ice rink.

A Christmas tree on Lake Trasimeno

Head to the delightful town of Castiglione del Lago and throughout December and into the start of the new year you'll be able to see another of the world’s biggest Christmas trees. Part of the Luci sul Trasimeno festival, the tree is picked out in lights on Lake Trasimeno. A kilometre in length, the tree is made up of 2,450 bulbs that hover just above the water, held up by 5km of cable. Visitors are able to see the tree from just behind the castle tower and can even sponsor a light. For every light sponsored, an olive tree will be planted as a symbol of peace and hope. Guests will find lots of other things to see and do, from a Christmas market to a huge nativity scene. 

Winter Jazz Festival in Orvieto

Umbria's Winter Jazz Festival is now in its 30th year and the 2023 programme has 90 events performed by 30 bands and more than 150 musicians. Spread over five days, from 28 December to 1 January, visitors can soak up soul, jazz, gospel and funk from noon 'til night in the delightful Umbrian town of Orvieto.

There are two moments that have always characterised the Winter Jazz Festival. The first is the New Year’s Eve Dinner and the concerts before and after midnight - an excellent augur for a happy new year. While the second is the gospel concert that follows New Year's Day Mass in the Duomo, performed this year at 5pm by the Virginia State Gospel Choir, with the religious songs of the African American tradition now a firm festival fixture. 

New Year's Eve

There is no better place to celebrate the end of one year and the start of another than here in Umbria. The region's towns and cities come alive with fireworks, live music and traditional Italian feasts. Whether you choose to join the local celebrations and have a New Year's Eve dinner in one of the many incredible restaurants, or to host your own party in private luxury at your SpecialUmbria property, you are guaranteed to see in the New Year in style.

The Christmas holiday season in Umbria offers a unique blend of cultural experiences, festive celebrations and a proper switch-off giving you a chance to reflect and reset in this extraordinarily beautiful part of Italy. With one of our luxury rental villas as your base, you can explore all that this stunning region has to offer, creating fabulous memories to last a lifetime.
