from the moment we arrived, we felt as we were in paradise! Ugo made us feel like we were his family. The house (Villa Orlando) was exqusite and the tranqulity was just what we were needed. His private chefs Ada & Enzo were the icing on the cake... we cancelled reservations at local restaurants once we tasted the delicacies in...

The near unanimity of positive ratings perplexes me. Granted, my family's experience was limited to Liliana and Nello, and thus I have no opinions on any of the other properties on offer. Based on my other experiences within Tuscany, I would rate the Liliana's accommodations as okay, no better than adequate.The Nello facility is, on other hand distinctly substandard by...

Thanks for your review. As you also underlined Villa Ugo usually receives very good reviews, all of which are made spontaneously by our guests. I am not sure which other experiences you have had in Tuscany, but, unless you stay in a 5 star hotel, which of course differs a lot in price and service, our villas absolutely reach the...

We recently returned home after 3 weeks in Villa Ugo - Villa Orlando, and it was very hard to leave! Villa Orlando's large 4 bedroom/4 bath arrangement was perfect for family and friends. The house itself is beautifully restored, furnished and cared for with all the amenities provided. Separate living rooms on both the ground floor and upper level offered...

There are simply not enough adjectives to describe Villa Ugo- Villa Nello. The setting is amazing, quiet, beautiful views and a superb villa with pool to boot! I had visited Villa Ugo with my late husband and friends some years ago and we stayed at Villa Liliana prior to the renovations. So when we started to plan a family reunion...

Villa Ugo was recommended to us by a colleague in 2011 and our first stay then certainly lived up, if not exceeded our expectations. During our holiday we stayed at Villa Lilliana (before the renovation) and were very impressed with the villa, hospitality and location. We liked it so much that two years later we decided to get married in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Near the center of the aptly-named Golden Valley of the Chiana River (the Valdichiana), some 400 meters above sea level but just a few kilometers from the town Cortona, Villa Ugo encompasses every quality of Tuscan charm, simplicity and rural beauty. Since 1890, my family, the Sabatini’s have lived in the 16th century Villa Ugo, surrounded by over 11 hectares of olive groves and vineyards. The groves were once divided into three fields, where secondary houses were inhabited by tenant farmers. These three Villas also date, in part, to the 16th century, and I have carefully and beautifully restored them while maintaining the style, history and culture of the area and mindfully adding all the modern amenities and comforts. During your visit, you'll enjoy almost intoxicating peace, glorious vistas, and direct contact with nature in these three independent villas, Casa Liliana, Casa di Nello and Casa di OrlandoMy family provides a personal welcome to you, and discreetly ensures that you will be well looked-after during your stay, catering to your needs, and assisting with most any requirement to guarantee your visit is a memorable one.Come join us here at Villa Ugo, with all of Eastern Tuscany, western Umbria and central Italy nearby to welcome your relaxation and exploration!Ugo Sabatini ... more   less

“Villa di Nello (also sometimes known as Casa Giada, apparently) is very private, so ideal for those who seek peace and quiet. Should you have issues driving up a steep (gravel) hill road, then perhaps you'll prefer Villa Orlando, which is more accessible (yet a little less private perhaps).”
