The Villa has four bedrooms with four full bathrooms which allows a lot of flexibility. All amenities are provided. Local grocery store jaunts were a fun... More

We recently returned home after 3 weeks in Villa Ugo - Villa Orlando, and it was very hard to leave! Villa Orlando's large 4 bedroom/4 bath arrangement was perfect for family and friends. The house itself is beautifully restored, furnished and cared for with all the amenities provided. Separate living rooms on both the ground floor and upper level offered... More

There are simply not enough adjectives to describe Villa Ugo- Villa Nello. The setting is amazing, quiet, beautiful views and a superb villa with pool to boot! I had visited Villa Ugo with my late husband and friends some years ago and we stayed at Villa Liliana prior to the renovations. So when we started to plan a family reunion... More

We spent a week in Villa Ugo, so beautiful and peaceful. The owners looked after us very well and the meals were amazing. I am looking forward to going again with my family. Easy to visit the surrounding beautiful cities when you have a car.

Villa Ugo was recommended to us by a colleague in 2011 and our first stay then certainly lived up, if not exceeded our expectations. During our holiday we stayed at Villa Lilliana (before the renovation) and were very impressed with the villa, hospitality and location. We liked it so much that two years later we decided to get married in... More

This was our first trip to Tuscany, so we cannot compare with other offers in the area, but we are well-traveled, so know what to expect in general. And boy, Villa di Nello was nearly flawless. I honestly cannot really fault it. Yes, the driveway is steep (yet I had no problem with my large car (4m80)). No, the place... More

We recently stayed in this lovely villa for a week. I wish it could have been longer but we had more of Italy to see. Villa Lilliana was very comfortable with a large private pool a short walk from our front door. When we arrived the air conditioning was not working but Ugo made sure that by nights end it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Near the center of the aptly-named Golden Valley of the Chiana River (the Valdichiana), some 400 meters above sea level but just a few kilometers from the town Cortona, Villa Ugo encompasses every quality of Tuscan charm, simplicity and rural beauty. Since 1890, my family, the Sabatini’s have lived in the 16th century Villa Ugo, surrounded by over 11 hectares of olive groves and vineyards. The groves were once divided into three fields, where secondary houses were inhabited by tenant farmers. These three Villas also date, in part, to the 16th century, and I have carefully and beautifully restored them while maintaining the style, history and culture of the area and mindfully adding all the modern amenities and comforts. During your visit, you'll enjoy almost intoxicating peace, glorious vistas, and direct contact with nature in these three independent villas, Casa Liliana, Casa di Nello and Casa di OrlandoMy family provides a personal welcome to you, and discreetly ensures that you will be well looked-after during your stay, catering to your needs, and assisting with most any requirement to guarantee your visit is a memorable one.Come join us here at Villa Ugo, with all of Eastern Tuscany, western Umbria and central Italy nearby to welcome your relaxation and exploration!Ugo Sabatini ... more   less
