What a wonderful place to stay for a peaceful Tuscan holiday. What a beautiful setting upon the hillside. The villa Liliana where we stayed was perfect for us. We had ridden 1500 miles on our motorcycle and being in our 50s appreciated the comfortable sofa and bed. We had Ada to prepare our meal on the first and second night to save us having to shop on arrival, Lovely tasty food! The garden was lovely to sit in on sunny days with outstanding views.,our host Nocoletta.was so charming,what a lovely lady. The perfect Tuscan dream.
- 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
