Information

Set in private commanding location with undisturbed views over the Umbrian hills, Villa Canonica

offers an enviable level of luxury that leaves nothing to chance. With equal emphasis on style and comfort, the interior and outdoor décors are warmed with Mediterranean touches and infused with summer colours, rich reds, yellows and oranges in contrast with the blues and whites of the ceramic accessories.

The "Winter garden", a cosy living area with sofas, fireplace and dining table (air conditioned) has a more contemporary style, softened with natural shades of white and beiges, creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere and offering marvellous views of the garden.

 

The villa consists of a main building on 2 floors (sleeps up 10) and the independent apartment (sleeps 2) located within the same house, on the ground floor.

The villa is 2 kms away to a village with a bar, easy drive to good restaurants as well as shops, supermarkets, historic towns, places of interest.

The famous historic town of Todi, with all facilities for food, shopping, art and culture, is just 5 kms away. 

Some of Umbria’s most famous sites are a short drive away – Perugia, Orvieto, Spoleto, Assisi, Bevagna, Montefalco (the wine area of Umbria), Narni, Marmore Falls, Carsulae Roman Ruins and Lake Trasimeno are all within 15-60 minutes’ drive. Further afield, Rome is 1 hour 30 minutes, Siena and Florence around 2 hours by car.

The property is entirely air conditioned.

LOCATION

Umbria has a beautiful green and hilly territory with olive groves and vineyards, dotted with medieval castles and quaint hilltop towns.

Placed in Central Italy between Rome and Florence, Umbria is a region rich in history, culture, art and architecture, with famous cities such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Gubbio, Spoleto, Todi, Spello, Narni and others.

Lake Trasimeno, the largest Italian lake after that of Lake Como, is located an hour from Villa Rosella.

Umbria delights its visitors with stunning natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage. Local truffles, olive oil, asparagus, funghi porcini, and famous Sangiovese and Sagrantino wines will ensure food lovers will be in for a treat when visiting one of the region’s many excellent restaurants. 

The climate is mild with temperatures in winter rarely falling below zero and summer temperatures average around 25 degrees Centigrade.
