Villa Montone, luxury holiday home with stunning views
- SQM 220
When arriving at this private villa with pool near Montone the first thought surely is "wow!". The views are stunning, overlooking the valley between Montone and Pietralunga in the North of Umbria. It is only 1 km away from the village of Montone and yet very peaceful and quiet.
Montone itself is a small but very cute little town. It is officially part of the "Borghi più belli d'Italia", the most beautiful medieval villages of Italy. With its ancient walls and old centre this hilltop town still maintains its medieval atmosphere. In the village are a few bars and good restaurants.
The comfortable modern villa has three bedrooms with two bathrooms and an extra bathroom near the pool area. From the terraces and the pool the views are really breathtaking. The grounds are large and an invitation for guests that like to paint, read or write. The pool is 6 by 12 metres and 1 to 2.5 metres deep.
