With over 30 per cent of the region’s total area made up of woodland, Umbria is known as “the Green Heart of Italy”. Tower Villa has the unique advantage of being situated in the very centre of this area steeped with history and tradition. Umbria is one of Italy’s most beautiful and enchanting regions. This tranquil land of saints and ancient mystics, with its romantic countryside and its historically rich medieval hill towns, inspires a special reverence in the hearts of Italians as well as the foreigners visiting it. More than anywhere else, the region seems to represent the country’s spirituality. With less than a million inhabitants, Umbria’s population density is half that of the national average, allowing ample individuality. The simple pleasures of country living, surrounded by idyllic natural beauty, is enhanced with art, architecture, and wonderful food and wine in nearby towns and cities throughout the two adjoining regions of Lazio and Tuscany. Florence and Rome are within a two hour drive. Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Todi and Orvieto are all closely linked. The capital city of Perugia is just 20 minutes away and offers a wealth of cultural activities that include opera and the famous Umbria Jazz festival, held every July. Other spectacular hilltop towns include Cortona and Preggio. Preggio has an annual classical music festival and the annual Montone Film Festival which attracts an international audience. During the summer months open-air concerts and operas are often staged in the gardens of famous villas and palazzos that abound throughout the region. Many tours and excursions can be organized for guests during their stay. Guests have access to an 18 hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. A golf clubhouse and restaurant facilities within the same estate are only 3 minutes away from the villa. These are also accessible by golf-cart through a private pathway that runs across the nature reserve. All guests have discounts on golf fees and at the clubhouse restaurant. There are a wide range of outdoor pursuits and activities available including hunting, fishing and mountain bikes. The origins of this country estate, which has always risen majestically in the midst of the Umbrian region, date back more than a millennium. Inhabited by people since prehistoric times, the estate has been witness to many historical events which helped shape Italy today. Murlo is situated at the very top of a beautiful hill in the midst of Monte Elceto di Murlo and Monte Tezio. It is an easily defensible and dominant position.
