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 each other'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.

This  vacation villa is part of a group of houses where the owners live and  there is a small apartment for max. 4 guests that can be rented together with 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.

Anybody interested in yoga, stress relieving treatments and other  alternative relaxing body therapies can take some classes at this  ecological holiday villa. This is not included in the price. 

This  holiday villa is situated at 10 minutes driving from Spoleto in  Pontebari. One can walk (2.5 km, steep hill) to shops, a restaurant and a bar.  Montefalco is at 20 minutes driving. Other distances: Assisi and Terni  40 minutes, Perugia 50 minutes, Norcia 45 minutes, Rome airports 2 hrs.

There is wifi and a washing machine for general use.

The ecological villa has a  private  garden and terrace with wooden good quality garden furniture.  The owner  has her own private terrace at the other side of the villa.  Around the  pool (oval, 6m x 12m x 1.40m) the guests have sun beds, also  made in  wood. The pool is fenced with a thick hedge and has two small  gates that  can be closed. There is ample parking out of sight of the  house (one  can always drive up to the house to load or unload).

The  villa has  been built using ecological materials and with the latest  building  technologies for energy efficiency. The roof is a ventilating  roof,  heating is through wall panels, where new materials were needed,  wood  and stone have been used. The result is a villa with an extremely   comfortable feel and done with modern attractive furnishings,   also where possible ecological (the mattresses are, for example, made   from natural latex).

The ecological vacation villa is set up as follows:

Ground  floor

In the hallway one finds a  small guest bathroom. The back of the house has a bedroom suitable for  wheelchair users, with its own bathroom.

“Elisabetta's place is absolutely gorgeous. It's a stunning house with plenty of space for a large family or friendship group, and Elisabetta is a friendly, kind and helpful host! Beautiful location on a hill surrounded by olive groves and with views across the countryside. The pool is a fabulous bonus, clean and perfectly situated with quality loungers. The 5 main bedrooms are well sized - 2 have comfortable double beds, one in particular is lovely with a 4 poster and mosquito nets. 3 have two twins which can be pushed together, all v comfortable. There are also a number of extra beds on mezzanine floors which are great for kids. Rooms have ensuite bathrooms which are all spotless and well-equipped with good showers. The kitchen is large with good amenities, there's a great dining area too, and everything is decorated in a simple, tasteful, authentic style. It's perfect for a comfortable base to visit Umbria from and is only 15 mins from Spoleto. Absolutely recommended, we had a brilliant time, and the eco-friendly aspect is really great too! Thank you Elisabetta!”

prachtig vakantiehuis op een heuvel. Wij hebben 2 weken gelogeerd met 12 personen in dit heerlijke huis. Er is volop ruimte in en om het huis en je kunt er genieten van de stilte en het uitzicht. De eigenaresse is vriendelijk en gastvrij. E is een groot zwembad met ligstoelen en we hebben met de hele familie 2 yogalessen gevolgd in een aparte ruimte op het terrein. Het huis is smaakvol en duurzaam ingericht met ruime slaapkamers. Spoleto ligt vlakbij en Perugia en Assissi zijn ook makkelijk te bereiken. Een absolute aanrader!

Thank you so much Elisabetta for hosting us at this beautiful property. The house and it's grounds are delightful: large and spotlessly clean you can comfortably have 12 people staying here without ever feeling on top of each other. Each bedroom is unique with lovely rustic finishes and the kitchen is very well equipped. The outdoor oven and grill are a delight for cooking on a warm evening while surrounded by views of the stunning countryside and Spoleto's Rocca Albornoziana always visible. The pool is so gorgeous and refreshing that we struggled to get out of it long enough to do any sight seeing! Close to Rome and so many of Umbria's hilltop villages, we really enjoyed the location. This place is such an amazing spot for families to get together, with room for the kids to run around and play. Make sure you ask Elisabetta for restaurant recommendations. She sent us to Chateux de Pep on our last day and the only regret that we had was that we hadn't found it earlier - great food and lovely house wine. Nothing to fault. The agriturismo was superb with gracious hosts and wonderful accommodation.

From the owner's guestbook

What an amazing place! Peace and calm just pour from this old but beautifully restored house and ease their way into your mind. A beautiful hostess to whom no trouble is too much coupled with stunning grounds complete with a clear blue pool make it just about perfect. Wake to the sounds of gently rustling grass, shower with the natural soaps made in house then Cook in the well appointed kitchen with olive oil made by your hostess with olives grown on the premises. Marks out of ten, I'd happily score this place an eleven ! Thank you Elizabetta for a wonderfully stay.

Dutch and English reviews copied from previous Villa in Umbria website

2015: We had a fantastic time at Villa Ecologica. Elisabetta was a wonderful and accommodating host. The views are beautiful and the house is much nicer than it looks in the pictures. Highly recommended. Thanks for helping us arrange such a wonderful holiday. Anonymous 2014: Prima plek, niet gemakkelijk te vinden. We hebben het er met de Elisabetta over gehad. Tip: ook een route opnemen vanuit Spoleto zelf. Klein beetje vervelend dat de wasmachine in een schuur staat, waar we 1 keer niet in konden. Jullie site en inlichtingen, hulp ed. hebben wij als zeer prettig gevonden. Nooit lang wachten op antwoord, alles snel geregeld, super!! Ineke Nederland 2013: Hi, We had a wonderful and happy stay at Villa Ecologica in Umbria. Alterno was so helpful showing us the way to the supermarket. A peaceful location, very eco-friendly and all we required at the house and pool. Beautiful views, nice people. Thank You, Karen from Ireland 2012: Hi again! Wonderful property and surrounding gardens and land, fantastic pool, great base for various Umbrian trips, lovely, very helpful owner. 11 out of 10! All the best Nick - UK Uit het gastenboek van de villa: August 2012 We had a wonderful holiday in the house, by the pool and visiting lovely places in Umbria! Thank you for a very nice time. Fam. D.B. & Fam R. A wonderful place to stay to get the best out of relaxation and seeing the amazing towns of Umbria. Great holiday! Maggie, Beckenham UK Sept/Oct 2012 “Dixon Family Reunion” Families from Scotland, America and Australia gathered here under the Umbrian sun for an amazing week. Blessed with great weather for the week we all enjoyed this fabulous location and Villa. From the moment Elisabetta picked us up from the Spoleto station she was a great host and advisor. Three generations sharing the beautiful spot together – what more could we ask for… Local food in Norcia to restaurants up the road from the villa, the charm of the area really hit us. We sampled Sagrantino grapes from sun drenched slopes and vineyards to local meals and specialities. Thank you Elisabetta for a week of memories and happiness! Wow!!! Simon and family 2010: Hallo Willemijn, Graag wil ik jullie melden dat we een fantastische vakantie hebben gehad in Villa Ecologica van Elisabeth. Het weer was prachtig, de streek is uitermate mooi en we hebben een aantal mooie daguitstappen kunnen doen naar Spello, Rome, Spoleto, Assisi, watervallen, ... We wilden niet graag terug naar huis. Onze kinderen (9 en 12 jaar) hebben hun zeer goed geamuseerd. Ze vroegen al gelijk of we volgend jaar terug gaan. We hebben geantwoord dat dat best wel eens zou kunnen,...... Elisabeth is absoluut een zeer goede gastvrouw. We konden ook altijd bij haar terecht indien we vragen hadden. Kortom alles was pikobello !!!! Wij gaan zeker goeie reclame maken. Groetjes, L. P. Van 2009: Dear Saskia & Willemijn, We came back to Israel yesterday, after a wonderful vacation. We had great time in Villa Ecologica - it was very spacious, well equipped and made us feel just like at home !!! Moreover, we had a great pleasure of making the reservation with the excellent service of yours. Thanks again, Adi & family Hallo, Omdat onze vakantie van 10 tot 27 juli reuze is meegevallen wilde ik vragen of jullie volgende referentie op jullie website willen publiceren. The families Bruninx-Jorissen and Jorissen-Jans got a fantastic time in Villa Ecologica during our 2 weeks stay (10 -27 July) ! This house is truly the best experiences in the 5 years that we travel to Toscany and Umbria. As we both have disabled children (one in a wheelchair and one with severe autism) it is so important to have an environment where they (we) feel at home and Villa Ecologica certainly answered that need. The house itself, the rooms, the kitchen, the pool area, everything is adapted to give everybody (and also disabled children) an unforgettable holiday feeling in a breath-taking environement. And we want to give special thanks to the owners of the villa, who live nearby, but who were so discrete that you won't notice them unless you needed them. Elisabeth and here husband did their utmost best to help us to solve small practical issues on the spot. And not to forget the tasteful vegetables, olive oil and wine we got from them... Highly recommended ! Erwin Goede dag, Het verblijf iin villa ecologica is ons heel goed bevallen. Villa is ruim en alles is aanwezig voor 15-16 personen. Zelf waren we met 5 volwassenen en 5 kinderen. Keuken ruim en voldoende vuren, pannen, tassen, borden etc wat soms voor een grote groep niet altijd het geval is. De eigenaar bracht ons tot 3 maal toe lekkere verse vijgen uit hun tuin. Ook informatie over aktiviteiten allerhande heeft Elisabetta ons gegeven. Met de kinderen hebben we hier wel geen gebruik van gemaakt maar we veronderstellen dat het voor andere mensen wel nuttig kan zijn. Tijdelijk minpunt misschien dat parasol voor eettafel op terras stuk was. Hierdoor moesten we 's morgens en 's avonds eettafel buiten verzetten naar de schaduw onder de grote kastanjeboom. Een klein minpunt zoals gezegd want de staander voor de parasol duidt er in ieder geval op dat dit normaal niet hoefde te gebeuren. Geblaat van de ezels zal voor de ene charmant klinken , voor de andere vervelend. Ons stoorde het geenszins. Nog een tip, als er verlichting aan het zwembad zou zijn - er is nu verlichting in het zwembad - zou er 's avonds ook gebruik van kunnen gemaakt worden. Elisabetta klaagde nogal over de strikte regels waaraan ze moesten voldoen ; kwaliteit water, lichten aan rand van zwembad mochten niet gebruikt worden etc. We begrijpen haar standpunt. Elisabetta en Altero respekteerden zeker onze privacy. Nooit zaten we samen in het zwembad. Wat voor ons dan ook weer niet zo strikt hoefde. We hebben nog kommentaar achtergelaten in een boek dat Elisabetta ons gaf. Spoleto is trouwens ideale uitvalsbasis voor Umbrië. Mvrgr, Kris We had an almost perfect holiday here. The only bad thing is that it was too short!!! Thank you Elisabeth for the beautiful house, on this very special place and thank you for this wonderful week! We loved to go to "L'Osteria del Matto". Very delicious and special! Karin & Detlef We enjoyed our stay in Villa Ecologica. The villa has everything we need: confortable rooms and bathrooms, a fantastic kitchen, great pool and excellent environment. We will surely recommend this villa to our families and friends! Thanks for this week, Nele & Chris - Sofie & Tom - Elke & Koen - Tom Liebe Saskia, Liebes "Villa in Umbrien" - Team, obwohl unser Urlaub schon länger vorbei ist, wollten wir uns nochmal für Ihre professionelle und trotzdem persönliche Vermittlung bedanken! Wir - zwei Familien, mit insgesamt sieben Personen, haben wunderschöne Tage in der "Villa Ecologica" in Spoleto verbracht! Die Villa war wirklich schöner, als wir es von den Fotos her erwartet haben. Das Haus ist sehr großzügig und mit allem eingerichtet, was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub braucht. Der Garten ist ruhig und sehr gepflegt. Der Pool war supersauber und man konnte gut darin schwimmen. Die Hausbesitzerin war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, wenn wir Fragen hatten. Spoleto ist eine schöne, Stadt mit vielen netten Ecken und erfreulicherweise, relativ wenig Touristen. Familie N & M Van voor 2009: Beste Willemijn, de Villa Ecologica bij Spoleto is heel goed bevallen, niets dan lof. Het huis is fonkelnieuw en heel comfortabel, alles is aanwezig, alles is schoon, elke kamer zijn eigen badkamer, geweldig uitgeruste keuken dus echt voor kookliefhebbers. Zwembad en tuin heerlijk. De eigenaars zijn zeer behulpzaam en vriendelijk, soms iets te onzeker over hun rol. Het zwembad wordt ook af en toe door hen en hun gasten gebruikt maar zeker niet storend. Wel handig om te weten dat zij op het terrein aanwezig zijn (ook voor gasten die meer privacy wensen). Vriendelijke groet, Nienke Hello, We would like to thank you for the superb holiday we had in the fantastic villa ecologica. We are recommending the villa everybody. Hope to see you next year! Yours sincerely, Hans, Renate, Lisa, Floor and Lotte
