Villa Ecologica is a spacious and elegant, ecologically built villa for holidays with view on Spoleto in Umbria. It is an excellent location for holidays of larger groups to enjoy eachother's company in a peaceful environment. The vicinity of the medieval town of Spoleto is very practical.
There are 5 spacious bedrooms, each with bathroom. The villa has a private garden, set in the midst of an olive grove with several donkeys who keep the grass cut short. The donkeys are fenced in and not close to the villa.
This vacation villa is part of a group of houses where the owners live and there is a small apartment for 2 that remains closed in highseason to ensure the privacy of the guests of the main villa. The owner speaks English. Part of the property has been turned into a beautiful studio where she can organise yoga classes, stress releasing treatments and flower therapies. The owners do use the pool, but give high priority to the privacy of guests.
This is a very special vacation villa for groups or a few families together who love animals (there are donkeys and a few cats), like nature and want to live in respect of nature. Anybody interested in yoga, stress relieving treatments and other alternative relaxing body therapies could take some classes at this ecological holiday villa. This is not included in the price.
