Set in the heart of Umbria’s countryside, Villa Altea is a former stone-built house including a mediaval watchover tower, a spacious villa for families or friends considering a holiday in the undisturbed countryside.

Its peaceful setting is also conveniently close to Todi (8kms - 10 minutes drive), Orvieto (30 kms) and Perugia (35 kms) for restaurants, shopping, art galleries and nightlife; to Montefalco (35 kms) and the wine district of Umbria and to Spoleto (50 kms) and Assisi (50 kms), for medieval architecture, white truffles, olive oil production and Franciscan itineraries trough woods and hillside retreats of hermits.

Nearest supermarket, restaurant, bar and shops are in the town of Ponterio (7 kms, 6 minutes drive) where there is also a connection to free motorway E45 leading to the South (Rome) and the North (Perugia, Tuscany). The area is included in the natural park of Tiber River.

The property has 3 different entrances, the main one with electric gate and secondary entrances on the opposite sides of the garden, with 8 covered and safe parking spaces.

The house is split into 2 parts: the main villa and the annexed dependance.

It is possible to rent just the main villa at a reduced rate; in that case guests staying in the villa would have exclusive use of the park and pool, none would stay in the dependance.

The first floor has direct access to the garden and a wooden staircase leads to the tower, where there is a ovely reading rooms with library and sofas (2 flights of steps, not ideal for young children, if required in advance, the tower access can be closes for safety reasons).
