A few min from TODI and by the historical hamlet of ILCI
A unique sample of rural architecture in a stylish design. A passionate project by its owner/architect to blend a country contemporary living concept with the unspoiled surrounding nature: bright open spaces full of light, large volumes, large openings and doors onto the gardens.
Sleeps 6 - 3 double bedrooms - 3 bathrooms -
private 2ha estate with 16 mt long pool - front and back porch - electrical gate - large BBQ - firewood oven
Immersed in the mysticism and charm of the hills around Todi, L'Olmeto is a newly built exclusive villa, designed by an internationally known architect, for his buen retiro. Moved by his great love for this enchanting Region, the architect's has magnificently used large volumes and wide openings with the purpose of merging with nature: the result is a perfect example of sophisticated and comfortable modern rural architecture, where nature is present in each room, perfectly blended with the neat and minimal design and art pieces.
This extraordinary contemporary house is a rare example of passive house, and yet full of taste, style and comfort. The project fits in perfectly to the surrounding landscape and results in a technologically avant-garde and eco-sustainable dwelling. The estate is surrounded by lush greenery and cultivated fields, together with patches of oak woods on some sides.
The gardens, designed to naturally blend in the surrounding landscape, consist of large lawn, bordered by lavender, rosemary and broom borders, together with elm trees, olive trees The sunny pool faces the views and is surrounded by a teak and grey stone paved area.
The single level house is made up of 6 buildings ( 5 of which are used by guests), all internally linked to each other. Each building has a large French window that opens directly onto the garden. The architectural and volumetrical conformation is typical of a row of barns, and is commonly found in the north of Italy: rectangular plan, vertical brick structures, covered by a double layer roof. The overall effect is one of great beauty and originality – making every holiday here a truly unique experience.
Other interesting details, aside from the use of sophisticated materials, furnishings and designer lighting are: the large jacuzzi in the master bedroom, encased in a teak deck; the new-generation projector in the sitting area with a large screen (ideal for watching films and documentaries); a perfectly equipped outdoor area for barbecues, grills and cooking in the wood-oven; Great attention has also been paid to functionality and technological comfort- from the accessories, to the high-tech electrical appliances that have been chosen for the kitchen, wifi connection throughout, various audio–visual systems ( projector/cd with large screen and dolby surround, lcd tv with Sky decoder, dvd player, hifi, cd player, Ipod, Iphone cable).
We enter the sitting area from the outside patio, which runs across the centre of the house. This area has a wooden floor, a large dining table for 8/10 people, sofas, benches and a small wooden table. To the left of the entrance is a hallway that leads to the Tv room and to the two guests' bedrooms. Both guests' bedrooms are double and have bathrooms with shower. The tv room/study has a very welcoming and intimate atmosphere with two comfortable corner-sofas in front of the fireplace, two windows ( one of which is a French window that leads into the front garden), photos, artwork and a square table which is perfect for use as a desk.
The hallway leads us back to the living area ( the heart of the house) which is a unique and large, bright room with three large French windows leading into the front garden, and 2 large rectangular windows facing the back gardens. This multifunctional and completely open-plan area is an extraordinary space where every tone of white is perfectly enhanced by the strong colours of the furnishings and the artwork which harmoniously interrupt the monochrome. Divided into two sections, this space reflects the modern living-concept, kitchen and dining area, with white lacquered table that seats 10/12 people, a beautiful natural wood shelf which adds a dash of colour to the amazing custom built kitchen, with a 'gioia carrara' marble work-surface, a central island helps to divide the dining area, and has two seperate cookers. The opposite work-surface, which is underneath the window, has two extra-large sinks that are at a distance so as to optimise the preparation space.
The sitting room has four sofas, three of which are arranged around the fireplace and in front of the wall on which the projector screen is hidden. The walls are adorned with bookshelves and pieces of art.
A hallway leads from here to the master bedroom, which is preceded by a shower room. This bedroom has a french window that opens onto the side of the house where we find the swimming pool ( southwest) and a large jacuzzi is encased in a teak deck on the other side of the room underneath the window. A walk-in wardrobe is next to the jacuzzi.
Only one section of the house is closed and it is not described in this advertisement

Lived in Umbria for over 14 years totally fallen in love with this area.
Built a contemporary house in the woods with a wonderful view over Todi and the Tiber Valley, decided to make it possible that foreigners could also enjoy these emotions and scents.
Since 2012 set up a business on managing on-line booking of special houses in special places, a sort of inspired rental concept, mainly in Umbria and Tuscan coast.
My aim is to have just a few selection of houses to offer to travelers who are looking for a special experience.
My idea is to support the travelers in all their needs and make sure they have all the necessary information to spend a holiday as travelers and not tourists.
My passions are nature, music, architecture and sports, such as pilates, mountain-biking, windsurfing but, most of all, walking in the woods with my dog.
I now live between Rome, Todi and Ansedonia (Monte Argentario) where I base my Summer office.
I am divorced and live with my special boys (12 and 15 years old), a loving German shepherd and two cats...
