THE VILLA

Located on a very private estate and nature reserve of some 2,700 acres on the borders of Umbria and Tuscany. Scattered amongst the olive groves, vineyards and extensive Mediterranean oak and chestnut woods, you will find Casa Delle Suore which has been restored and designed to the highest standards.  Integral to the estate, is a unique combination of world class service and high level of privacy and security. Amongst the most well-appointed properties in Italy this is where privacy, seclusion and proximity to nature have not come at the expense of comfort, technology and service….

Casa Delle Suore might once have been a nunnery, the House of the Sisters. It has been restored to provide light filled rooms, well appointed to take advantage of the views of rolling wooded hills from each of the three buildings: Main House, the Lavender Guest House and the West Courtyard Guest House. The buildings together with two old mulberry trees form a large courtyard. The dining room with sliding glass doors that can disappear into the walls, a splendid double height kitchen hiding a wonderful dome shaped wine cellar, and the shallow stepped cascade leading you from the pool lounge down to the 16m x 4m infinity pool are some of the unique features of this spectacular property.

The estate and villa is a sanctuary hidden from the outside world and where it is possible to enjoy a totally relaxing blissful week away. However it is also part of a thriving, working estate with its stables, its winery, olive groves, wild boar hunts, clay pigeon shoots, tennis courts and private restaurants. For those who want to explore, Umbria and Tuscany epitomise the attractions of Italy: beautiful countryside reminiscent of landscapes in Renaissance paintings, medieval hill-top towns, wonderful art galleries, museums and architecture, not to mention delicious food and wine. Within an hour's drive there are such towns as Assisi, Arezzo, Cortona, Gubbio, Perugia and Siena and many other smaller sights to explore. The two regions abound with open-air concerts and operas during the long summer season and each town has its own little festivals.
