Situated on a hillside and surrounded by a well kept park and garden is Villa Chiara – a beautiful old stone farmhouse in Umbria that has been renovated to a high standard.
Artisans laboured for over a year to ensure that the original structure was kept intact and yet at the same time manage to create a modern, comfortable and attractive holiday home.
Simply but comfortably furnished it offers extremely spacious accommodation for a large family or group of friends looking for a private villa with a character all of its own: not many villas can boast a private orchard or five-a-side football pitch for the more active members of their party.
Villa Chiara excels when it comes to relaxation. There are areas of pale terracotta terracing around the house that are perfect for escaping for a moment or two of total privacy.
The covered pergola beside the pool provides shade from the summer sun and is perfect for slow light lunches taken al fresco. This wonderful villa enjoys wonderful far reaching views of the surrounding Umbrian countryside, a patchwork of sunflowers, olive groves and woodland, with views like this who would ever want to leave?
Known for its Rubesco, a red wine with a great history, Torgiano is more than just a hilltop Umbrian town, more than just narrow streets, more than treelined parks, it offers one of the best restaurants in Umbria if not Italy and a wine museum that is gaining in popularity.
Torgiano lies at the heart of Medival Umbria and views from here are almost Tuscan in their awe inspiring beauty.
