If you want an elegant villa with a lot more than mere elegance, then Villa San Savino, in the heart of lovely Umbria, fits the bill.
Apart from the fact that this outstanding villa offers perfect peace in the midst of a magically beautiful, gated nature reserve, as well as some of the best views in Umbria, you have a world class golf course only 5 minutes drive away on the estate's private roads. If you are into walking, then you can have endless pleasure roaming this quiet, private valley. If you'd prefer to grab a golf cart to explore, then swing by the clubhouse and the staff will be delighted to arrange it for you. Nothing is too much trouble! The golf course also boasts a charming restaurant - you can dine on local specialties like pasta served with truffles, steaks topped with porcini mushrooms and finish with the "king's sausage" a delicious roly-poly custard pudding which dates back to the times of medieval knights and their velvet-robed damsels. To step into Villa San Savino is to step into the perfect blend of ancient Umbria and modern comfort.
You arrive at the golf club and from there the staff will lead you on the estate's private roads, up to your villa in the hills. You'll arrive at a pair of electric gates - your gates - opening into a cypress tree lined drive. Carry on a short way and ... there you are, in front of a charming old villa in a simply stunning setting. The sitting room, with its dining area, is open plan, L-shaped and as spacious as you could wish for. The fireplace is perfect for roaring log fires in the cooler months. In summer, this fine old building maintains its cool in the traditional manner with its huge thick walls and well insulated roof. The "trick" is to keep doors and windows closed when it's really hot and then throw open the house to the cooling evening breezes. The TV room is quite separate from the sitting room and was once a country chapel. It still retains traces of its ancient past and makes the perfect spot to watch TV or play cards if you can drag yourselves away from the outdoor terraces with their wonderful views. Just beyond the TV room is a fine double bedroom with its own bathroom. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms: two large twin bedded rooms and another double bedroom, again with a king sized bed and all with en suite bathrooms of course. Just to finish downstairs, the kitchen is nicely equipped if you like to cook. If you don't feel like cooking, you can have the restaurant deliver in dishes for an informal supper on the lawn at home, or you can ask for the estate's cook and butler service. Now that's moving into serious spoiling! You can forget the kitchen, leave it all to the staff and relax into the romantic atmosphere of your luxurious villa as the sun sets on your picture perfect valley. If you'd like to take a lesson in authentic Umbrian cookery you can ask the estate staff to set up a cookery lesson in your villa, or you might like to go down to the clubhouse instead and make use of their kitchen if the folks at home don't want to be disturbed.
Villa San Savino offers the best in family togetherness in the privacy of a splendid self-catering villa and adds all the extra comforts normally only available in a 5 star hotel. If you want privacy you've got it, if you want staff on hand dedicated to ensuring your every comfort, you've got that too. Plus there's a world class golf course only 5 minutes away. As a guest on the estate you have an automatic discount of 20% off green fees and 10% off any meals you eat in the golf club's restaurant. Antognolla aims to please - and they are certainly experts in the field.
For brilliant views with luxuriously spoiling comforts, Villa San Savino has got to be the savvy travellers choice!
