T he Lederle family has a flair for Luxury Villas, and Casa di Led in Umbria is the latest creation to be enjoyed by those seeking the perfect authentic Italian experience. Sue Lederle’s inspiration, from travels around the world, and her passion for the vibrant colours of India, Morocco, and the African bushveld, shine through. Her creative additions to this splendid 5 bedroomed 17th-century luxury villa provide an open freshness and opulent comfort to satisfy all your getaway needs.
Just 2 hours from Rome and 11km from Spoleto in Umbria, this incredible 5 bedroom villa, surrounded by olive groves high up on a hill, is appointed perfectly for gazing over the Clitunno Valley, while soaking up the ambiance of the old Campello Alto Castle and Convent below. The Umbrian setting is like a movie scene, with all the attributes of Tuscany, just a little more Italian.
Once arriving at the Villa, it becomes hard to leave. Every area offers the most comfortable and creative of spaces to immerse yourselves into. Whether it’s dining alfresco under the pergola, barbequing on the terrace, swimming in the pool, or enjoying the supreme comfort of the house itself, the Villa is perfect for a group of friends or family to immerse yourselves into. The authentic Umbrian lifestyle of olive oil, riposo (long lunch and lie down), walks through the olive groves, and general appreciation of the area and all it has to offer, will have you treasuring every minute spent up on the hill.
W hen you do eventually manage to pull yourself away from the lounges and the alluring pool area, discovering the nearby ancient towns is a must. Seemingly endless treasures of rich Italian culture and architecture are just moments away. The hilltop towns of Trevi (10 mins) and Assisi (25 mins) are easy to find on the road connecting Rome in the South and Milan to the North, and will enthral you with the colorful cathedrals, ambiance filled streets, aroma full restaurants, and gelato to rival all others. The scope of this Italian experience will leave you craving more, just as it is time to leave…and you are so welcome to return at any time.
