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!
