General


Villa Donatella occupies a truly envious position amongst the glorious Umbrian countryside with perfect 360 degree panoramic views where the blue skies meet the green lush hillsides.
Reminiscent of bygone years, this beautiful stone built villa synonymous with this particular medieval region of Italy, offers Italian charm in spades.  Set behind electric gates, it offers totally secure and private accommodation with only the birdsong for company.
Outside there is a wonderful swimming pool where you can lie under the parasol, between the deep blue and the olive trees that are seemingly dotted throughout the extensive and beautifully kept gardens.
Inside, this villa is true to form and offers pretty Italian furnishings and characteristic beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls. 
In addition to the wonderful spacious accommodation here, there are two fabulous covered verandas, on the ground floor and another found on the first floor that unsurprisingly offers magnificent views across the region. 

Location


High in the hills, Villa Donatella is just 10km from the town of Umbertide which is located north of the region of Umbria itself. 

Nearby the town of Citta di Castello dates back to the 16th Century and sits alongside the Tiber River.  A fantastic mix of Baroque and Gothic architecture and with a touch of Renaissance facade, the Duomo is home to a collection of sacred art, whilst the Palazzo Vitelli Connoniera houses works from the great masters such as Raphael and Signorelli.

Also near to Villa Donatella is the town of Gubbio, described as one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Italy.  An important centre during the Roman era, it now combines a wonderful mix of restaurants and bars with stunning historical buildings such as the Palazzo dei Consoli and Palazzo Pretorio.

To the south of Umbertide, lies the city of Perugia.  This Umbrian walled town is brimming with history dating back to the Etruscan civilisation and has the most wonderful Duomo right in the heart of the city said to hold the Virgin’s wedding ring.  Rich in tradition and art, the high Renaissance artists Pietro Perugino and later Raphael created some of his most famous masterpieces here.  Today, the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria in Perugia houses a number of masterpieces, including the Madonna with Child and six Angels which represents the Renaissance Marian art of Duccio.   The Palazzo dei Priori houses the National Art Gallery of Umbria in addition to three museums.  For all chocoholics or those who wish to experience a real Italian celebration, the chocolate festival in the centre of Perugia is hosted every October.  Also home to two large universities along with a number of other training institutions, it sees a steady stream of foreign visitors and has successfully combined history with modern life. 

On a slightly different note, for the party animals amongst you, take a trip a little further South of Perugia to Spoleto and experience its world famous festival; an awesome celebration of dance, drama, music and opera.

Arezzo lies to the north-west of Umbertide and has a turbulent but rather significant history, one of the most important cities of the Etruscan federation.  It was the setting for Roberto Benigni’s La Vita e Bella (Life is Beautiful) and hosts a huge 500 exhibitor antique fair in Piazza Grande on the 1st weekend of every month. 

Home to some of the most significant buildings and art houses, the 12th Century Santa Maria della Pieve is one of the most original examples of Romanesque architecture.  The Duomo is also one of the greatest gothic monuments in Tuscany and houses highly valuable works of art.  The San Francesco with its unique great truss-roofed nave is regarded as one of the most majestic examples of gothic monastic architecture in Tuscany.  Its stunning frescoes depict the Legend of the True Cross regarded as one of the finest expressions of ideal aesthetics of the first renaissance.
