This beautiful villa provided the perfect Italian getaway that we were dreaming of. Tucked away in its own spacious grounds in the middle of the mediaeval village of Corfino, this beautifully appointed villa is a luxurious home from home.
The bedrooms are large and well equipped with original pieces of intricate furniture, while two boast stunning views over the valley and mountain range.
A sizeable upstairs bathroom is supplemented by an ensuite and a downstairs toilet, enough washing facilities even for 4 teenagers!
Two very different receptions rooms cater for all tastes. One is small and formally decorated, well supplied with information leaflets about activities and places of interest in the local area. The other has a massive dining table at the front window, but also a living room end with a large tv and sofas, ideal for when the kids need a break from the sun, or an evening movie.
The cosy traditional kitchen is superbly equipped, with enough pots and pans to cook up any dish you could desire. There is a large kitchen table to eat at, but we usually carried our meals across the garden path to a paved area under a gazebo fitted out with picnic tables and chairs.
Following a different path past the fruit trees, up the sloping garden takes you to a newly paved area with a pool and sunloungers for the sun worshippers, alongside the welcome shade of another gazebo with seating and a table for those who prefer to stay out of the direct sun. This is the perfect spot to read, out of splashing distance from the pool, but close enough to supervise younger children.
A tall gate separates the property from the narrow street, with the villa set well back into the front gardens, providing a wonderful sense of privacy as well as the pleasure of walking around all the fragrant flowering shrubs which surround the exterior of the property.
The owner, Daria, is most helpful and friendly, providing a really personal level of customer service, and a lovely bottle of local wine as a gift on arrival! All her recommendations for practical shopping, tourist visits and restaurants were spot on and her genuine welcome really made our holiday complete.
Memories of throwing open the shutters onto dazzling sunshine warming the cobbled streets of a village whose ancient stones have felt the feet of generations, and highlighting the crags and crevices of the surrounding mountain peaks, can only be rivalled by late evenings on the balcony watching the disappearing sun spill its last fiery rays over scenery we photographed over and over again in a vain attempt to capture its wonder.
I can’t recommend this villa highly enough - I only hope to return some day.
Relaxing and bbq by the pool with amazing tuscany countryside view!! Great trekking to deserve it too! I will definitely come back!
