We stayed in Villa Nello and had a wonderful week of pure relaxation. Ugo is an absolutely wonderful host and the surroundings are breathtaking. Rooms are spacious and the outside space is amazing - plenty of room for our party of 8. It's a slice of paradise.

We came to villa Ugo in July 2016 and we had an amazing time. Villa Nello had a beautiful view over the whole valley and the location made us feel like the only people for miles around. The actual villa was top notch with beautiful bedrooms, bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. The pool and sun lounging area around it... More

We spent a week in early June 2016 at Villa Ugo. This estate has been in the Sabatini family since the 1890s and is run by Ugo Sabatini. A friend had stayed there several times and raved about it. Ugo was wonderful and met us in a slight rain late Friday afternoon and led us up to Villa Lilliana. We... More

Our family gathered from Canada and South Africa for my 60th birthday at Villa Orlando. Ugo met us on our arrival and took us around the local store to get provisions and then guided us through the narrow streets to the villa on the hill. A perfect location for a family reunion. The villa was very comfortable - 4 double... More

We spent one week with good friends in villa Orlando during this winter and had the most wonderful time. The weather was sunny and mild, and the view from the house absolutely breathtaking. The beautiful city of Cortona is most enjoyable without the usual summer tourism and at NYE we where delighted to discover that the whole city dances joyfully... More

We've spent NYE at villa Ugo and it was fantastic! The house is perfectly located facing the beautiful valley and owners are really welcoming. In addition to producing their wine, they also produce their own Gin, and you should definitely try it! Tuscany & especially Cortona is worth visiting even in winter, without doubt we'll be back soon.

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

“Villa di Nello (also sometimes known as Casa Giada, apparently) is very private, so ideal for those who seek peace and quiet. Should you have issues driving up a steep (gravel) hill road, then perhaps you'll prefer Villa Orlando, which is more accessible (yet a little less private perhaps).”
