Podere Fonte Cristiano is a magazine-worthy estate in the hills of Umbria outside Perugia, surrounded by over 15 acres of olive groves, vineyards, fields and forests. With seven bedrooms spread over a main house and two guest cottages, gorgeous architecture dating from 1667, luxurious outdoor spaces and stables that have been converted to a play area, the property is spacious and elegant, but not without a fun side, too.

You’ll want to spend sunny days on the villa’s grounds by the pool, outdoor shower and pool house (which has its own bathroom). Doze in the hammock and breathe in the scent of lavender, rosemary and roses from the villa gardens. The young and young at heart will appreciate the trampoline, ping-pong table and foosball table in the renovated stables, and film buffs will enjoy the home cinema. Relax in the outdoor seating areas, prepare dinner on the outdoor grill and enjoy the meal at the al-fresco dining area with views of Tuscany and Umbria’s rolling hills. For convenience and comfort, the villa has air conditioning, baby equipment and portions are wheelchair-accessible.

The villa’s 17th-century origins are evident in its beamed ceilings, stone floors and arched doorways between rooms. The decor is stylish and comfortable, with a brick fireplace in the living room, leather club chairs offering a comfortable spot to read, and futon-style seating in the media room. Contemporary art and lighting add sleek interest, from a mirrored fixture in the media room to drop-shaped pendants in the dining room. The standout kitchen features both a traditional stone sink and a coveted La Cornue Grand Chef range.

The estate’s seven bedrooms are comfortably divided between the main villa and two guest houses, offering comfort and privacy for groups of friends or multi-generational families. The master bedroom in the main villa features a freestanding bath, as well as a separate shower room, cleverly concealed behind a bookcase door. Two more en-suite bedrooms, a queen and a twin, are located on the upper level, with a separate studio entrance. Downstairs, the garden suite is wheelchair accessible and benefits from its own private sitting room. In the larger of the two guest houses, there’s a king size four-poster bed on the main level, with a children’s bunk room, bathroom and kitchenette downstairs. In the second guest house, the bedroom has two twin beds and an en-suite shower room.

From the villa, it’s a 2-minute walk to the San Donato church and a 5-minute drive to the towns of Moiano and Paciano, Il Pozetto or Il Casale restaurants, a grocery store and a gym. A 10-minute drive brings you to the medieval village of Citta della Pieve and its sensational architecture, while a 15-minute drive takes you to the Chiusi train station and Lamborghini golf club. With the cities of Florence and Rome each a 90-minute drive away, Podere Fonte Cristiano is a central base for exploring Umbria and Tuscany’s charming towns and attractions.
