The beautiful structure and original traditional materials used, makes the design of this house. The basic furniture was only brought in to bring comfort, but the house itself, is doing the job.
Villa Martinazzi, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and private pool, is a true traditional Umbrian farmhouse ' just finished after a light renovation and set in well kept mature terraced gardens, surrounded by gentle wooded hills with majestic mountains in the distance.
The beautiful old stonework of the house is full of character and inside, the rooms have kept the authenticity of the building with wonderful hand made terracotta floors and sandblasted old beams. Freshed up bathrooms and a new modern kitchen combined with minimal furniture but above all many original details of the original building.
The bedrooms are spacious and bright, with good quality bed linens and just some basic furniture elements, each window framing a snapshot of the Umbrian countryside.
For those who like to explore put of season, the fireplace in the sitting room and the wood burning stove in the dining area is wonderful for cosying up with a good book after a long walk around the house.
Outside the house a nice covered area with comfortable seating is wonderful for dining ‘al fresco’. And another terrace overlooking the lovely pool with comfortable armchairs is ideal for the morning coffee or the afternoon aperitif, although the terrace on top of the outside staircase could be even be a better place as the views are wonderful there.
The Villa is well secluded behind a gate, high hedges, cypress trees and horse chestnuts and yet is only a short drive from the picturesque town of Umbertide, boasting a great selection of restaurants, bars and fine shopping.
For those who simply love Italy in the green countryside, you really can’t get more ‘dolce vita’ than this.
