Villa Metato




Villa Metato is an intimate Chic Retreat, ideal for 2 people, set amid 12 acres of ancient forest in the Upper Tiber Valley. Organic vineyards, figs, apples, wild strawberries, apricot trees . . . the fruits of Umbria surround this eco-friendly boutique hotel for two, which uses only environmentally-sound materials and locally-sourced produce. Close to the border between Umbria & Tuscany, this romantic bolthole is perfect for exploring the fertile hills of northern Italy.

This 18th-century farm building has a modern soul with an eclectic mix of late 20th-century furniture, expect Eero Saarinen, Conran, Tom Dixon and Eames among the designers featured in this 120 square metre villa. Owners Nick & Margherita both have a background in fashion expressed in the well-thought-out interiors and along with their son are to hand for anything from organising trips to yoga lessons and there is a great private chef to hand if all you want to do is sit back and enjoy the view from the private pool.


The forests and hills surrounding Villa Metato make for lovely walks and the owners will provide maps and a point in the right direction, or take off on the bicycles and explore the nearby villages. Citta di Castello, with its Pinacoteca housing 16th-century frescoes & a painting by Raphael, and the Burri Collection gallery. This Stone Age - Roman settlement is well worth an explore. A little further, but all under an hour's drive are the towns of Assisi, Perugia and Arezzo.

Back at the villa, guests can take a massage or spruce up with a manicure and unwind with a yoga session in the peaceful garden. Or why not try the Italian version of boules on the bocce court, play table tennis & table football in the villa or take a day trip to the 18-hole golf course Antognolla. If all that wasn't enough, the villa also has a small salt-water swimming pool.


Breakfast uses the freshest of ingredients, from fruit picked straight from the garden to eggs from the Villa Metato chickens, fresh juices, wholesome homemade bread and local bacon.

The kitchen is well-equipped and opens out onto the outdoor dining area and there is a BBQ in the garden. There is also an excellent private chef available who will cook up fresh fish dishes, pastas and other Italian treats and this chic retreat has a great stock of local wine. Nick & Margherita are happy to stock up on food and drink on request prior to arrival.

Villa Metato was not affected by the recent tragic events that have taken place in Italy and we remain fully functional and open for existing and new reservations. We wish to extend heartfelt thoughts to all those affected during these times.
