Villa Vocabolo Casamonti is an 18th century, expertly-restored farmhouse at the highest point of a tiny hillside hamlet. The forest of the Massa Martana mountain range begins literally in its backyard, the setting is serene and beautiful. The front of the vila is surrounded by a flower-filled garden and a private, heated pool. There is a large, outside dining area in a covered portico, a shady courtyard with a fully functional pizza oven (wood and instructions provided), as well as a backyard area with with olive trees and additional seating to enjoy the morning sun, or the cooler forest air during the midday heat.

The large second-floor terrazzo presents a beautiful vista of sunsets over the valley towards Todi. Guests can start hiking right at the house, or reach marked trails via short drives (around 10 minutes).

Throughout, attention to modern/mid-century furniture and original artwork enhances the natural beauty of the original masonry with its raw stone walls and chestnut beams. 

 

The nearest cafe is a short morning walk away in the small village of Colpetrazzo; super markets and restaurants are just minutes away in the idyllic towns of Massa Martana or Aquasparta. Todi, one of Italy’s most beautiful towns, with its wealth of excellent restaurants and historic sights can be reached within 15 minutes. The villa is also centrally situated between essentially all of Umbria’s most beautiful attractions: Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Bevagna, Montifalco, and Spoleto are all about 40 minutes away; the famous Cascata della Marmore near Terni can be reached in about 25 minutes. Rome can be reached in 90 minutes by car, or conveniently by train from Terni in 50 minutes.

 

With its great separation of space, the property is ideal for large families, or multi-family groups: 4 bedrooms (total of 10 beds including a bed in a mezzanine) and 5 bathrooms are spread across two floors and a bedroom/bathrooms annex. 3 bedrooms are air-conditioned.

There is a full kitchen on the top floor and a coffee kitchen on the first floor.

Each floor has comfortable seating and dining areas with unobtrusively integrated Smart TVs. The top floor contains a cozy reading nook, the bottom floor a music space with a piano and a guitar.

Excellent WIFI (Starlink) is provided throughout the building, including large parts of the outdoor area.

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.
