Greeted by the trickle of a baroque fountain and filled with the contrast of Umbrian sunlight against dark marble floors, gilded bannisters and ming vases, stepping into this villa is like entering a Renaissance painting. It’s the kind of home where the baths, beds and even the billiard table come with claw feet. Sparkling chandeliers illuminate oil paintings in the grand lounge and candelabra light the basement taverna, where there’s a vintage jukebox, chintzy sofas, rows upon rows of aged spirits and a long bar to serve them at. The chrome and steel kitchen is restaurant-standard, with a built-in tiled barbecue sticking to the region’s rustic food tradition. Hire a private chef to make the most of the local produce, and dine in the formal dining room amidst the antique dressers and portraits, or enjoy alfresco, under the portico in the garden. The book-lined study with its gilded desk is ideal for catching up on a bit of work, and you can put up that barrier between work and play with a steamy sauna session to unwind. Outside, you’ll find a lap-sized swimming pool and cement tennis court, both with changing areas. Lawn games and a wooden treehouse should keep little ones entertained for hours. Should you wish to venture beyond the grounds of this palatial villa, the ancient village of Corciano is nearby and it’s a 10-minute drive to the shores of Lake Trasimeno.

About Perugia

In the heart of picturesque Umbria, the walled city of Perugia radiates history down every winding cobbled alleyway. Sitting atop a hill, streets stacked on top of each other are crowned at the tip with the jutting spire of Piazza IV Novembre with its ancient Cathedral. Fontana Maggiore, an ornate fountain is at the heart of the square which once buzzed with medieval merchants and monks. Follow the narrow streets...
