  • Overview

    One of our best-kept secrets, this villa is surrounded by 117 private acres and nestled in the green hills of Umbria. Villa Col di Casale is a charming luxury villa with four bedrooms, sleeping up to eight people. It is set amidst vast meadows and forests with far-reaching views across the sweeping Umbrian hills and valleys. The seclusion and privacy it affords have made it a popular retreat for film stars and captains of industry.  The former ballerina now an interior & jewelry designer and actor & theatre owner couple spent years planning every aspect of the design. 

    The villa has the quaint appearance of an Umbrian farmhouse from the outside, but is definitely more 'palazzo' on the inside, with grand archways, stone floors, elegant interiors and large terraces. A more private alternative to a boutique hotel in Umbria, Villa Col di Casale is perfect for families and friends looking for a luxury base from which to explore the green heart of Italy. The villa is suitable for special events and has hosted weddings due to its picture perfect setting. A local concierge is available to ensure your stay is personalised and on hand for suggestions of where to go, including organising a more frequent maid service and private chef. 

    The villa is suitable for children of all ages and includes two baby cots. 
    The villa has a minimum 4-night stay policy.
    The entire villa must be rented, it is not possible to rent individual rooms.


    "We are an artistic couple and have fulfilled our dream of renovating and interior designing our beautiful 18th-century farmhouse. It took us two years of restoration after 70 years abandoned to create the space. All interiors were sourced by us in London to create an intimate feel. Our previous guests call Villa Col di Casale 'beautiful, tranquil, inspiring, an Italian idyll' - that's why we regularly visit ourselves.".  Naomi & Peter Tate

    Not far from Villa Col di Casale are charming Umbrian towns and cultural hot spots to explore including Perugia; the capital of Umbria, Assisi and Gubbio. Do also visit the Tuscan town of Arezzo which holds antique markets and fantastic shops and restaurants, and Cortona with its cobbled streets and little boutique shops. All of these are within 45 minutes drive whilst Siena, Orvieto and Spoleto, which hosts an international theatre & music festival every year, are a little further afield.

    Closer to home is the charming medieval town of Montone; one of the prettiest hilltop towns in Italy, it is home to a yearly film festival in July and has a couple of great restaurants. For banks, supermarkets and chemists head to Umbertide which is just 15 minutes drive from the villa.

    The swimming pool at Villa Col di Casale is in a picturesque setting in front of the villa and enjoys views across the valley - it can be heated for a small fee, which we recommend in early summer. The pool is open from May until the end of October. WiFi is accessible throughout the villa and there is satellite TV.

    There are three terraces around the villa, ideal for al fresco dining as the sun sets, with a barbecue for guest use. A private chef can be organised.
