In the heart of Tuscia, Lazio's Etruscan region, perched on a hilltop overlooking Lake Bolsena on the border of Tuscany and Umbria, stands this elegant late 19th century villa (about 287 sq mt) with swimming pool and landscaped gardens, surrounded by 4.5ha of meadow, olive trees and woodland. An isolated and panoramic position, only a few kilometres from the shores of the lake, that offers swimming and sailing, this three floor villa is part of the Maremma landscape, land of archaeological sites and wine and food tasting routes and cultural centres such as Orvieto, Pitigliano, Viterbo and Civita di Bagnoregio. It is also at easy reach to the Tuscan beaches of Capalbio and Monte Argentario.
Framed by an avenue of cypress trees, the villas position leads to heavenly surroundings. A manicured garden, with various areas on different levels, is defined by steps and walls in local tufo stone and neatly trimmed hedges. A two hundred year old oak tree overlooks the salt water pool with its travertine infinity edge (12x4m) and lawn surround, whilst below an enchanting green courtyard with pergolas and flowering borders, provides ample shade.
Completely restored to the highest standards, retaining original features where possible or replacing them with hand made, artisan materials, the villas innately rustic features are enhanced by a mix of modern and antique fittings. The soft honey tone and the sage coloured shutters perfectly blend with the contemporary tile floors, high chestnut beamed ceilings and travertine marble bathrooms; the made-to-measure kitchen, equipped with all mod-cons, meets the dining room through a huge original stone arch. The two sitting rooms with a wood burning stove are framed by double french windows. Linking indoor and outdoor living, a stunning loggia runs the width of the house, forming al fresco living and dining rooms, from which to enjoy the uninterrupted views. Steps lead down from here to the pool area and to a games room and convenient shower room on the lower level.
Upstairs is reached via the central vaulted stairs. The master bedroom has double aspect windows, as does the ensuite bath and shower room. Two more bedrooms, and a shower room complete the first floor accommodation. In the attic, there are four further rooms, perfect for children, bathroom with shower and plenty of storage.
An ideal holiday property for friends and family, the villa enjoys an exceptional reputation for luxury rentals and it has been featured in the Times Newspaper as one of the top villas in Italy to rent.
