Villa Francis at Umbria
Leave your worries behind at Villa Francis, a 12th century villa in Umbria near the Tuscany border, which sits amid sunflower fields and wooded hills with the feeling of being untouched by the passage of time. The grounds include beautiful gardens, a 13x5m pool with hillside views, a hot tub and a splendid courtyard perfect for relaxing in the sun. Umbria’s ruggedly beautiful landscapes and wines will amaze you.
This former monastery consists of 7 self-catered apartments containing 8 bedrooms for 17 guests. Each apartment has its own entrance and an en-suite modern bathroom, and many have original elements like stone walls, brick floors and wooden beams.
Umbria is near it all; from your location northwest of the village of San Giovanni del Pantano, medieval hill towns like Assisi, Perugia and Gubbio are within 40 km, and the art and culture of Arezzo, Siena and Florence are just 45-90 minute drives. Schedule a wine tour...
