Villa Villa Santa Croce, Rental in Umbria

Villa Santa Croce

Luxury 3 bedroom villa with outstanding views of Umbria, 3 bathrooms, heated infinity pool


The Home

In summary

Santa Croce is located in one of the most exclusive private country estates in Umbria, owned by the same family for generations. Renowned for its thousands of hectares of immaculate woods and olive groves, and for its superb valleys, lakes and rivers, it is the perfect place for a relaxing and tranquil holiday, offering impressive levels of comfort and elegance.

This three bedroom villa, perched on the very top of Monte Santa Croce, is an example of flawless restoration on an exceptional site. Perhaps Santa Croce’s real name should be “the-villa-on-top-of-the-world” thanks to an extraordinary location with 360° views over the estate and Umbria. One of the most impressive villas on the estate, Santa Croce impresses with its fine interior design and large infinity pool that seems to float above the valley.


Two spectacular king size double bedrooms, each with a spacious ensuite bathroom.
One superb double bedroom with four poster bed and spacious ensuite bathroom. 
A well-equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher, oven, two fridges and microwave oven.
Spacious laundry room with washing machine, iron and ironing board

Separate furnished terrace for breakfast located just outside the kitchen
Armchairs and sofa with parasol on the terrace in front of the living room
Spectacular terrace with dining table and chairs seating eight in front of the dining room, perfect for unforgettable dinners at sunset
Barbecue area with beautiful panoramic terrace complete with table seating six

Characteristics of pool:  13m x 5m x 1.5m deep with built in steps. The pool can be heated.


To reach the villa there are 3km of white gravel road. Please note that the roads are in good conditions but occasionally steep and with little stones as all the country roads, so they are not suitable for low-height cars.
We usually advise to rent a 4x4 (just because driving would be more comfortable) but neither our staff or our usual guests ever rent it, unless they have their own. As a matter of fact, even if the roads are white gravel roads, a standard car is usually more than enough.
Villa Santa Croce has the unique advantage of being situated in the very centre of Umbria, an area where the simple pleasures of country living embrace art, history and architecture offering wonderful food and wine in nearby towns throughout the two adjoining regions of Lazio and Tuscany. Florence and Rome are within two hours’ drive of the estate and Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi and Orvieto are all nearby. The region’s capital city Perugia is just 20 minutes away and offers a wealth of cultural activities. Other spectacular hilltop towns include Cortona and Preggio, the latter with its annual classical music festival, as well as the annual Montone Film Festival which attracts an international audience.
