Villa Benedettina

Set in the rolling hills of Umbria, BADIOLA DELLE SETTEVALLI  is surrounded by undulating fields of sunflowers, grape vines, and olive and fruit trees. It offers privacy, relax and total peace. The strategical position in centre of Umbria is convenient to major highways so the ancient medieval towns of Umbria and Tuscany can be explored at leisure.

Both Perugia and Assisi can be seen in the distance, while Todi, Gubbio, Spoleto, and Orvieto are less than an hour's drive. Going north to Tuscany, you can reach Florence within two hours. If your interest lies in sampling the famous Brunello wines of Monalcino, the Vino Nobile of Montepulciano, and Pecorino cheese of Pienza, these Tuscan towns are within an hour's drive. This lovingly restored 16th century friar's abbey with its own choir hall has been expanded to create a charming country retreat.

The friar’s Choir hall is that today survives of the ancient abbey and under its vaults ceiling allows the guests  to enjoy  with fresh dinners around the long friars table in a atmosphere of the good old days.  The property is very elegantly, but comfortably furnished with a combination of antique and modern furniture using fine fabrics in lively colors. The modern, well-equipped main kitchen downstairs will delight gourmet cooks as well as those wanting to fix a simple meal. In addition to the main house, with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths en suite, there is a duplex cottage adjacent to the pool area.  The cottage's two studios each has a delightful small kitchen and nice bathroom with shower. In high season the main house and adjacent cottage must be rented together.  In low season, each can be rented independently.
