San Mamiliano is a tiny medieval hamlet in the breathtaking Valnerina area of southern Umbria, far off the beaten tourist track, yet within easy reach of the main sites. Summer holiday rental -- and also other dates - is available of part of a typical Umbrian 'casale', a splendid villa which probably dates back to the 16th century, and possibly much further. The accommodation for rent comprises two self-catering apartments, restored to a very high standard. The upper part of the house is our much loved holiday home, where we spend most weekends and part of the summer. The house is set in its own extensive grounds, just outside the village.

Summer holiday rental -- and also other dates - is available of part of a typical Umbrian 'casale', a splendid villa which probably dates back to the 16th century, and possibly much further. The accommodation for rent comprises two self-catering apartments, restored to a very high standard. The upper part of the house is our much loved holiday home, where we spend most weekends and part of the summer. The house is set in its own extensive grounds, just outside the village. Guests have the use of all the grounds, including a romantic private vine-covered terrace for La Terrazza, and a lovely belvedere looking out over the valley, for La Loggia. The property has an unusually large swimming pool, with stunning views over the surrounding hills and valleys. There is an outdoor stone pizza oven available for guests, which makes the most amazing pizza! Particularly suitable for two families or groups of friends. It also has an outdoor pizza oven by the pool, which is a lot of fun and makes really excellent pizza, as well as bread and slow cooked food overnight. La Terrazza has whitewashed walls, wooden beams and a delightfully romantic vine-covered terrace which is completely enclosed. In late August/September you can lean out of the bathroom window to pick the grapes! There is a pretty master bedroom, furnished with hand-made Umbrian fabrics and with bathroom leading off it, and a smaller bedroom, with bags of character, leading off the kitchen/living room. Outside the main accommodation area is an old stone-walled cantina, which would once have been used for storing wine and curing hams, and has now been converted into a reading/play room and provides extra space for the dishwasher, washing machine and second fridge. In the heat of the summer, this is the coolest spot in the entire property. It is also perfect as an extra third bedroom for teenagers or extra guests, with a fold-out bed available on request. The accommodation has central heating, so is cozy in winter, with a log fire in the living room. A year round holiday choice: This beautiful and unspoilt corner of Umbria has something to offer all year round. You can roast chestnuts by the fire in Autumn, eat new olive oil (and watch it being made) on bruschetta in Winter, pick wild asparagus from the hillsides in Spring and have barbecues round the pool in Summer (lit for night-time swims). The stars are exceptional, with a good chance of seeing shooting stars in Summer. A pair of eagles nesting in the craggy valley of the Valnerina have been spotted from the deck of the pool on several occasions. Away from the crowds: San Mamiliano is tucked away in a hidden corner of Umbria. Here, you won't find coach loads of tourists. Nor will you find yourself sitting next to other holidaymakers when you eat out at the excellent country trattorias, of which there are a number within easy reach. There are spectacular walks and horse riding, tennis, canoeing and white water rafting (including some descents suitable for children) all available nearby. There are also many little known local treasures, which the owners will be glad to point out. These include the highest waterfalls in Europe, an exquisite 7th century frescoed abbey and several abandoned hilltop villages, which can be reached on foot and are idyllic spots for a picnic. A warm welcome: San Mamiliano is the perfect place for a family holiday, and children will receive an especially warm welcome. But it is also a very romantic setting, and an ideal place to chill out and de-stress. When Italian-English owners Mario, Clare are in residence (most weekends and the summer), we do our best to give guests all the space and privacy they want. But we are also happy to help out in any way, by pointing out special places to visit, booking trattorias or advising on the best places to buy good local products such as olive oil and truffles. Clare will be happy to take guests horse-riding on the beautiful mountains nearby, while Mario is always pleased to chat about one his favourite subjects -- wine. Although the pool is shared, it is an unusually large one, with plenty of room in and out of the water. Many of our guests return year after year.More
