Europe / Italy / Umbria
Deep within the Umbrian countryside and set atop a Perugian hill is Cleante, a wonderfully restored medieval farmhouse boasting magnificent views.
This updated traditional villa comprises two structures, a main villa and a cottage: the main villa is made up of two independently accessible units, one with six bedrooms, and the other with two bedrooms, while the standalone cottage is an en-suite king bedroom. Based on its simply yet tastefully decorated interiors and well-furnished outdoor gathering spaces that provide guests with many opportunities for unwinding with loved ones or alone while enjoying the breathtaking open sky and lush landscapes, and its fortuitous position that offers access to the many culinary, historical, and artistic treasures of Umbria, “the green heart of Italy,” Cleante serves as an exceptional leisure destination.
Cleante offers ample gathering spaces and boasts amazing views for enjoying time together. The villa is part of a family-owned estate that is surrounded by rivers, fishing lakes, a waterfall, castles, and the estate’s restaurant (about a 10-min drive). The estate offers a wide variety of activities, from yoga classes and massage treatments, to hunting (wild boar, in autumn), trail hiking and 18-hole golfing. Nearby are a small village with shops (10 min), and the famed towns of Perugia (25 min) and Assisi (40 min), among many others. Florence and Rome are also within reach, each about a 2-hr drive away.
Main Villa - Unit 1
On the ground floor, an open-plan living room, dining room, and kitchen area features plenty of space and seating for entertaining or just relaxing, complete with plush sofas, a large LCD TV, and a fireplace, and connects to a separate additional living room. These rooms have double doors that lead to the outdoor gathering areas. The well-equipped open kitchen has a small table for additional counter space or for a simple bite. A guest bathroom as well as a laundry room complete this floor. Two stairways lead up to the separate parts of the main villa’s first floor.
Main Villa - Unit 2
The living room is great for easygoing gatherings, while the fully equipped kitchen features also a dining table.
Enjoy relaxing moments with loved ones, or in peaceful solitude, at the private heated infinity pool or in the adjoining Jacuzzi that can fit 8 guests. Furnished with parasols, sunbeds, and chairs, the infinity pool and the pool deck overlook an impressive medieval estate against a lush backdrop of green forests and hills. Furnished terraces and a pergola with a dining table, seating for 18, and a BBQ, are ideal for enjoying meals al fresco with wide views of the Umbrian countryside. A private putting green and putters are available, for those who can’t wait to access the nearby 18-hole golf course.
