We have just returned from two weeks at th Villa Orlando with family and friends. I can not tell you how wonderful of a trip it was. The villa is great; well stocked kitchen, air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and a fantastic host. Ugo sent us to the best places to eat and see! The position of the villa is perfect for exploring the region and on the days that we had rain we went off to see Siena, Florence and a whole array of Italian hill towns.
The kids loved the peace and quiet and the pool!
Ada's cooking is second to none and the view from the terrace takes your breath away!
A real gem!
- 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
