Villa Falco


Villa Falco sits high on the hillside at the head of ‘Le Valle dei Falchi’ with views over farmland and woodland little changed in generations.


Villa Falco, a carefully restored farmhouse for 12 guests, sits high on the hillside at the head of ‘Le Valle dei Falchi’ with views over farmland and woodland little changed in generations. The elevated position means that even in high summer the house catches a gentle breeze. Sloping gardens terraced with local stone and wide, green lawns are perfect for unwinding.

Inside, the interiors are simply yet beautifully furnished. The house has plenty of original features, the ground floor is floored in original clay tiles and wooden beams are exposed throughout. The two sitting rooms, one of them upstairs and of double height, have plenty of space for stretching out with a good book and the impressive stone fireplaces are great for cosying up with a fire out of season. Upstairs the bedrooms are large yet cosy and furnished with pieces of antique furniture and fabrics. The bathrooms are decorated in neutral colours with glazed tiles, stone sink surrounds and high-quality fittings. The free-standing tub is particularly impressive.

This is a real ‘get away from it all’ holiday or as the Italians say ‘dolce far niente’ (the sweetness of doing nothing). From the location of the house to the comfortable interiors, everything is designed for maximum relaxation. While away the days here reading your book by the pool, indulging in locally produced food and night time star-gazing. For those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life there couldn’t be a better spot.

You won’t need to go far here for a delicious meal – the two restaurants in nearby Fraccano serve pasta, pizza and risottos all specific to the region – don’t miss the wild boar tagliatelle!

Your villa and Covid-19


To prevent any possible spread of Covid-19 and to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday, all our villas are cleaned to the highest standard possible, and according to the latest Italian health and safety regulations.

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.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • 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 the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • 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
