Santa Lucia nestles in a hillside close to the pretty village of Lippiano and offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The 'Casa Colonica' (traditional farmhouse) is the perfect sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Set in beautifully tended gardens stocked with abundant lavender, rosemary, vines and fruit trees (figs and plums), the entire house and pool are completely private to, and for the sole use of each booking.

Prostor

Our heartfelt wish is that our guests feel at home in Santa Lucia and enjoy the charm and character of this special part of Italy as much as we do. Help yourselves to the fruit, herbs etc in the garden, take a book from the shelf in the hall, have some fun baking pizza in the original bread/pizza oven but above all relax and unwind.

Although located in the district of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, the official address is a bit of a misnomer as Santa Lucia's closest neighbour is the pretty hilltop village of Lippiano.

Santa Lucia is set out on two separate levels (separate entrances) with guests having use of the entire top level (the bottom level is closed - we store all our family items there). In keeping with its heritage, the house has been sympathetically restored and retains its rustic charm. High, wooden-beamed rooms with white-washed walls give a wonderful feeling of airiness and the view from every window draws you into the glorious rural landscape.

The guest accommodation consists of 3 large double bedrooms (one of which is en suite) with wrought iron beds and mosquito nets. All bedroom windows are also fitted with mosquito screens. There is an armchair bed (for one person) in the living area. The accommodation also includes a family bathroom with bath/shower, WC, WHB and washing machine, very well-equipped kitchen that includes dishwasher, four-ring electric hob and oven, toaster, espresso machine, coffee machine, kettle and magic bullet, large living room with traditional open fireplace (and an impressive wood pile!) and dining room leading to terrace for al fresco dining (outdoor table seats 8). There is a second outdoor dining area outside the lower level, again seating 8. The house does not have central heating (on the upper level) but in cooler weather guests can use the electric heaters supplied as well as the open fire (and there's an endless supply of firewood). Generally though the house is more suitable for late spring, summer and early autumn use.

The villa is surrounded on all sides by lovely landscaped gardens filled with mature lavender, rosemary and bay plants, roses, vines and fruit trees (figs and plums).

The private pool area to the rear of the house, reached via a short flight of stone steps, features sun terraces, a poolside pergola with cushioned seating for six, numerous sun loungers and a poolside shower. The villa and pool area have spectacular views of Lippiano across the Umbrian hills. Please note that the pool is closed from 1st October to the 30th April.

One of the most charming features of the house is its very own original wood-fired bread/pizza oven built into the outside walls. If your sense of adventure (or patience) doesn't extend to building a fire to get this going, there is also a large Weber BBQ for outdoor cooking. Indoors a very wide selection of English books and DVDs cover every genre for adults and children and there is also a selection of board games. For those needing to keep in touch with the outside world, the house has WIFI.

Although check-out time is 12 noon, we will make every effort to facilitate guests who wish to remain beyond noon on their departure day. Please just let us know if you need to stay longer.

Dostupno gostima

Guests have sole use of the entire property and pool (apart from the bottom storey of the house where the owner's family stores its personal items). We only accept one booking at a time so the property is never shared nor will the owners ever be present when guests are there.

Ostale napomene

This is an old house and we have endeavoured to retain as many of the original features that give it its charm and personality. With charm comes a certain quirkiness so please note the following:
- Because the villa is built into a hillside, there are stepped areas in and around it and this may not suit persons of limited mobility. Please also take care with small children. The following steps should be noted:
1. As you enter the living room from the entrance hall, there is a step down directly inside the door on your left.
2. The step down from the living room into the kitchen. Please also mind your head here because the door is quite low. Anyone over approx. 1.65m (5ft 2") will need to be careful.
3. The step down from the living room to the dining room. Again mind your head here.
4. The step up in the middle of the main bathroom.
- Tiles in the bathrooms are very slippy when wet. Please use the bathmats provided. All baths are notoriously slippy so please be very careful if showering in the bath in the main bathroom (anti-slip suction pads are provided).
- The swimming pool is 12 meters long and the depth varies. The shallow end (1.2 meters deep with stepladder access) extends approximately half way down the length of the pool, at which point the pool slopes steeply down on all sides to its deepest point in the middle. Note that a very narrow ledge runs around all sides of the pool at a depth of one meter. Please only dive into the pool from the far end into the deepest part and keeping well away from the sides. Please never leave children unattended in the pool area.
- Please take care driving down from the road into the gravelled driveway of the villa as the road dips steeply.
- Our caretaker has a lovely Samoyed dog called Tommi who is now quite old. In the past he was a regular visitor to our house as he is very sociable but in recent years he struggles to walk the distance from his own house to ours especially in the summer heat and has come by very rarely for the past few years. However, in the event that he does arrive, he is very gentle with both adults and children and will go home of his own accord after a while.

We kindly ask that you refrain from smoking in the house. During the peak summer season and especially during spells of very hot weather, water is a very precious commodity in this rural area, where local farmers are dependent on it for crops and livestock. Please be mindful of water usage when showering/washing. Additional information contained in house manual.

We spent 5 days here as a family with a 7 month old baby. We found the villa to be comfortable, charming and set in a location with spectacular views (my camera never stopped clicking). On arrival we were left a welcome basket containing food essentials, wine, fruit and vegetables and a fully stocked kitchen. Most of our days were spent touring the area visiting places of interest, eating out and enjoying the Italian food and wine. Cortona and Anghiari were my two favourite places! Roisin was the perfect host, great communication and always on hand to help if it was needed.

Roisin's home is a beautiful place to stay. The location is secluded with wonderful views. All the facilities are as described. There were very generous supplies of food and drink to welcome us. It was 38 degrees most of the time we were there so the pool got lots of use. It was hot a night but Faustus quickly sorted us out with fans which really helped. The kitchen is well stocked and we made use of the pizza oven(kids night to cook) and used the barbecue. Lovely day out in the terrace every evening

Wunderschönes Haus mit tollem sehr großem Pool, die Umgebung ist fantastisch und der Blick auf Lipiano einfach toll. In der Umgebung sind viele wirklich tolle Städte zu besuchen (Arezzo, Gubbio, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Città di Castello). Roisin hat auch eine Mappe mit vielen Tipps im Haus hinterlassen. Wir sind Sonntags angekommen und sie hat den Kühlschrank mit den wichtigsten Lebensmitteln sehr großzügig gefüllt! Das war wirklich ein angenehmes Ankommen!! Sie antwortet immer sofort auf jede Frage, Fausto kümmert sich um das Haus und wohnt in der Nähe, auch immer hilfsbereit. Kann es sehr gerne weiterempfehlen, war eine super Woche!!!!

This villa is absolutely amazing. It is a perfect place in a perfect little slice of Umbria. The views from every aspect are like a postcard and whilst the photos on Roisin's site are beautiful - wait until you get there as it's even better in real life. Roisin is the perfect host - we had all information well in advance including everything we needed to know about the villa and the surrounding area and she contacted us after we arrived and several times throughout the stay to make sure everything was OK - nothing was too much trouble. And Fausto looks after the place while you are there and he is charming. A welcome pack of meats, pastas, cheeses, wines, fruits and vegetable, coffee, milk and all the staples was a great (and tasty) surprise. If you have decent weather (which we did) you will love lazing by the pool looking across the rolling hills at the hilltop village of Lippiano. Best place we've ever stayed through Airbnb (and similar sites). If your reading this, stop and just press the "book now" button.

Had a fantastic stay at Roisin's villa. We came straight from our wedding nearby and she very kindly left us a stocked fridge including prosecco which was wonderful! Villa is spacious, with a great pool and fantastic views. Pizza oven was also great fun....was very sad to leave. Communication was great throughout and I have no hesitation in recommending!

The house is brilliant and had everything you could want and more. The views in particular are fantastic and really don't come across in the photos. We spent a lot more time outside the house than in it, as the weather was so great, but the odd occasion we were indoors the living area was very comfortable and there is plenty of space. The location is also excellent we were out and about everyday and saw a lot of Umbria, Tuscany, and made it up to Urbino in Le Marche as well. The local towns are also all worth a visit. Roisin was mostly pretty quick at getting back to us and sent a load of useful information - including how to work the pizza oven, which was a fun evening. If we decide to go back to the area again we'll certainly be looking at getting in touch with Roisin again.

Unfortunately I was away from home (and my computer) over a few days during which Tony sent me two messages on Airbnb which unfortunately didn't push through to my phone so I missed them. Again, apologies for this Tony and thanks for your understanding. Hope you will return at some stage in the future and delighted that you enjoyed your holiday.

We will provide you with as much information as possible about our home and surrounding area before you arrive so that you can get the most out of your stay. We can be contacted by phone or email at any time prior to and during your time in Italy. Our friendly Italian caretaker lives just down the lane from our house and will tend the pool and gardens every few days.

O domaćinu: Roisin

Born in Ireland of an Irish father and German mother, I have a particular love of Italy thanks to spending my childhood summers at my German grandfather's home on the shores of Lago Maggiore in Northern Italy.

I love eating good food, cooking good food, writing and choral singing.

I love rummaging in antique shops and markets and like staying in places that are quirky and individual and away from crowds.

Above all I love spending time with my family (husband and 3 daughters), my animals (a lovable collie/springer mix and 2 cats) and a pot of tea! I have also developed a recent obsession with logic puzzles.
