This is a lovely 5 bedroom villa, surrounded by olive groves and and situated on the Umbria / Tuscany border making it an ideal base to explore both regions of Italy. The house originally dates back to the nineteenth century, but has been lovingly restored by the owners and furnished with pieces collected on their travels around the globe as well as various family treasures.

Inside, the main house measures approximately 300 square metres and boasts four good sized bedrooms and four bathrooms. There are also two relaxing living spaces, a library with plentiful array of books, a separate dining room and a well equipped kitchen. The fifth bedroom is located in a separate building within the grounds of the estate and is just a few metres from the main house. This bedroom also has its own bathroom. As you enter the main house, you come into the dining area. This has a large dining table seating up to 10 guests. A cupboard holds plenty of crockery and glassware. To one side of the dining room is the kitchen whilst a step at the other side leads to a cosy living area with comfortable sofas, well-stocked bookshelves and an array of vinyl records to enjoy listening to. There is also a corner fireplace for those staying in the colder Winter months. Also on this floor is a spacious master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. There is also a second bathroom on this floor with bath tub, perfect for those staying with younger children. This bathroom is also fitted with a washing machine. Upstairs, there are 3 additional bedrooms. Two of these rooms share an adjacent bathroom whilst the remaining bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom with shower. The 4th bedroom can be made up as either a twin or double bedroom and, in fact, for larger families, there is also a sofa bed in here allowing the room to sleep up to 3 people if required. Also on this floor is a second smaller living area. This is equipped with large TV with SKY satellite channels and is a great den for teenagers to relax in. This room also has doors leading directly to the outside of the property. All the bedrooms have air conditioning units. However, this is a property which stays cool even during the hot Summer months and, since the windows have been fitted with a special thermal glass that will keep out the heat if closed, you may find you don't even need to use the air conditioning at all. The option is there if you need it! Outside there is a good sized private garden measuring 4000 square metres in total. This is planted with numerous fruit and olive trees, grasses and herbs which in the Spring and Summer months fill the air with their delightful aroma. Rows of purple lavender line the path leading to the eco infinity swimming pool. From here, guests are treated to stunning views in all directions. This is also an area where you can enjoy some dramatic sunsets each evening. There is a BBQ for those who like to cook outdoors, whilst there is also covered loggia with wooden dining table and chairs providing the perfect setting for a dinner al fresco.

The villa is situated in the lovely village of Paciano which is a small and welcoming village in Umbria. The villa is ideally located within walking distance of the centre of the village. Paciano boasts 3 excellent restaurants along with a butcher, pharmacy and several bars and cafes. It also boasts a superb family bakery open twice a week. It is also just 30 minutes drive from Cortona, 15 minutes from Lake Trasimeno, just under an hour from Montalcino and Pienza and just over an hour from Florence and 2 hours from Rome. It's an ideal location from which to explore both Tuscany and Umbria.

A note from Jo

This villa is a very special place to stay. You can't help but immediately feel relaxed and at home here. As soon as you arrive, you'll feel the pace of life slow down just a little bit, your shoulders will drop as you take in the phenomenal views from the pool and you'll take a little smile as you think about the fantastic conversations you will enjoy over a meal on the covered terrace. We can also highly recommend taking one of the cookery classes on site which are run by the owner and which always receive rave reviews from our guests. You will be shown how to prepare a typical Umbrian meal using the plentiful organic produce, fresh from the garden.

    Just wanted to tell you what a fantastic time we had in Italy!! Thank you so, so much for recommending Fonte Cicerum to us, we absolutely loved it and Alina the owner, her mum Lucia, Walter the chef, all fab! The cookery course was brilliant, we all thoroughly enjoyed it and we were really sad to leave on Saturday!! Italy is officially our new favourite place in the world, it really did exceed our expectations so much!! It is truly a little slice of heaven!! Once again Jo thank you so much, we would never have found this place on our own, your recommendations and personal connection really helped us feel confident in making this decision!
