The history of Villa della Genga, 3 country houses for rent in Umbria, Italy, dates back to 1673 when the family della Genga moved to Spoleto. The estate became the favourite hunting ground for Pope Leone XII in the 19th-century before a period of semi-abandonment. Years later, Marquis Federico Pucci Genga, who was passionate about farming and agriculture, injected a new lease of life into the estate. Today these traditional agricultural houses near Perugia have been sensitively restored and converted into luxury house rentals, making Villa Genga, with its swimming pool and olive trees, the perfect countryside hideaway for friends and family.
The swimming pool at Villa della Genga, which is surrounded by olive trees, is run by a natural oxygenation process, with no added chemicals. Small group cooking courses can be arranged with a little notice as can other tailor-made courses. The beautiful city of Perguia is just 20 minutes away and has some lovely shops, bars and restaurants.
The houses at Villa della Genga are self-catering, but you can buy wine, lentils, organic olive oils and black truffles from the estate during your stay or even to take home with you.
The materials and colours used in the interiors at the 3 houses of Villa della Genga were inspired by the surrounding landscape of Spoleto itself. Il Grottone is a one bedroom house with a terraced garden and barbecue outside and a spacious kitchen, dining room and living room inside. La Colombaia has an original stone fireplace and sink in the kitchen, laundry room, dining room and living room on the first floor and 2 bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms. In the tower of La Colombaia, there is also a studio with a single bed, a large loft with a double bedroom and a bathroom. Outside, there is a covered loggia for relaxing and dining in the summer. Gli Ziri has 2 bedrooms, one of which overlooks the valley, plus a kitchen and living room with a fireplace and glass doors to watch the sunset. There is also a outdoor space in the form of a pergola of honeysuckle with outdoor table and armchairs.
