Podere Martanais a century old farmhouse which has been transformed into a lovely holiday home in Umbria. The villa lies in a wooded area with oak- and chestnut trees and lawns. The estate overlooks the old village of Massa Martana, which lies at a distance of only a few kilometers from Todi in the heart of Umbria. Here you can enjoy maximum privacy and peaceful tranquility. At the same time, this country house is a very convenient base for short trips to important historic towns like Todi, Spoleto, Assisi, Perugia, Montefalco and Bevagna.
Podere Martana is suitable for 9 persons and has five bedrooms, all with an en-suite private bathroom. The house has a living space of 300 square meters on two different levels. The interior decoration is charming and rustic, with modern elements to add a contemporary touch. There are two seating areas and a spacious kitchen with an adjacent large, covered terrace, which overlooks the pool and the nice outdoor oven/ BBQ. To the side of the house is another lovely spot to sit and enjoy the views over the valley.
Here you will feel yourself part of nature, with all modern luxury and on a short distance of a small town with all facilities. The ideal family holiday destination.
- Why this is Special
- Very particular country house, cosy and restored on a high level, without taking out the original character. Wonderful garden with old trees, lawns and nice views.
- What our clients say
Augsut 2018: 'Podere Martana is a fabulous experience, which starts with an enthusiastically warm and open welcome by the owner. The road from the town center to the villa goes steeply uphill, on smaller and smaller tracks, ending in total silence with the last 250 meters on private ground. When you leave your car, you get hit by the total silence and the breath-taking views over the woods. You stand in front of a very well equipped house where the kitchen gear, the books and toys for bigger and smaller children and the well filled wine-“cellar” makes you feel literally at home. The only drawback is that you have to leave again when your holiday is over.' Guy G, Belgium
