Podere Sassone is a newly built country house for 8 guests near Marsciano, designed by a well known modern architect, on the remains of a 17th century Umbrian farm. Inside and outside authentic old features have been respected, but the interior is finished in a beautiful light modern style. This modern villa is a great place to stay and enjoy a lovely infinity pool indulging oneself in the typical Umbrian summer.

The owners spent all their time and passion on the design of the interior and created a very personal, warm and unique modern place for themselves and their guests, where has been thought about every detail. You will feel that immediately when you enter Podere Sassone. 

The house is wonderfully positioned in the roling green Umbrian hills. From the house you can see an old hamlet with bell tower which is romantically illuminated in the evenings. The house is near the local road (SS 317) from Marsciano to San Venanzo, which is a low traffic road. This makes this villa very easy to acces but still very privately located. Marsciano is a medium-large town with all facilities, restaurants, bars etc. From Marsciano you can reach Todi within 10 minutes by car, which is a very beautiful medieval town with wonderful surroundings.

Podere Sassone is an unique new property in Umbria which will guarantee the perfect stay.

Why this is Special
Unique modern villa, very well designed in a personal style. This is the perfect place to stay if you love modern design.
What our clients say

Christian S., Switzerland (July 2017): 

Our stay at Podere Sassone was very very wonderful. The friendly owner, the house with its impressing architecture, the fresh pool, the landscape, even the small village were even bether than we were able to expect to. The owner gave us a lot of recommendations we were happy to have. That’s how holidays should be: It was beautiful, cultural and super relaxing! Thanks to the Special Umbria Team and also a special thank to the owner! 

Margret S-K, Germany ((June 2018):
Tranquil and charming space perfect for relaxing. It was like staying at a friend's home: It has a great, modern design at the same time being very cosy. The house itself is very well equipped, spacious with good room layout, so that we felt comfortable from the very first moment. The owners have a great eye for detail and every room has been decorated nicely.
Everything was well tidied and well maintained and the young lady, who was in charge of the mid week cleaning was a real gem. The owner was very friendly and hospitable, she came to welcome us and made sure we know that nothing would be too much trouble. We appreciated her help upon arrival and liked having a local contact if we would have been needed one. The tips and recommandations of her, for restaurants, sight-seeing, walking tours etc. were all good. Although we planned various trips, in the end we spent most time at the house as everthing was so comfortable and relaxed.   
The service from SpecialUmbria has been to top notch, everything was very good and efficient and the website is very accurat.
Summarized: We stayed at Podere Sassone for a week this summer and had a great stay! The pictures on the website were pretty impressive but as we arrived, everything was even nicer ... the view, the pool, the house. We hope to return and can truly recommend the house!
