Bellissima is a 300-year old farmhouse that was newly restored into a luxury farmhouse in the past two years. Set on an hill in a picturesque valley halfway between Rome and Florence, with extensive views over the Umbrian countryside, Villa Bellissima offers the best of both worlds — an idyllic rural setting, with modern amenities and a central location.

Visit Montepulciano, Orvieto, Todi, Perugia and Siena. Villa Bellissima is eight miles from Orvieto, and guests can travel by train to Rome in an hour. There is a quaint small hill village with all shops within hiking distance.
All of the bedrooms have fireplaces and wall safes; four have king-sized beds and two have two twins that can be make up as comfortable kings. Each bedroom has a large en suite bathroom; four have Jacuzzi tubs and walk-in showers; two have large walk-in showers but no tub. Every bathroom has a hair dryer. There is even an ice maker, which is unusual in Italy!

The owner is warm and welcoming. She lives on the adjacent private property, enhancing guests’ experience with her vast knowledge of the area and her friendly hospitality. She is a professional guide and can organize many special services, including car and driver, babysitters, grocery deliveries, massage, cook or chef services, wine tastings.

Umbria

Umbria is one of the smallest regions in Italy located just east of Tuscany. It is often referred to as the green heart of Italy. With its rolling hills, fields of olive groves, ancient buildings, and stunning landscape once could mistake this region for its neighbour Tuscany quite easily.
There are not too many cities in ancient Umbria which is refreshing and part of its charm. Umbria has retained many of Italy’s old world traditions and it has built up a name for itself as one of the countries slow food regions. It is common to spend 3 hours over one meal whilst in Umbria.
When visiting Umbria one should enjoy exploring cities such as Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto and Orvieto.
Perugia is a very lively city with its famous university for foreigners. It has a thriving art scene and several cultural events and music concerts.
