Description from manager

Estate is one of the most exclusive private country estates in Italy, owned by the same family for generations. Renowned for its thousands of hectares of immaculate woods and olive groves, and for its superb valleys, lakes and rivers, it is the perfect place for a relaxing and tranquil holiday, offering impressive levels of comfort and elegance.

This three bedroom villa, perched on the very top of Monte Santa Croce, is an example of flawless restoration on an exceptional site. Perhaps Santa Croce’s real name should be “the-villa-on-top-of-the-world” thanks to an extraordinary location with 360° views over the Murlo Estate and Umbria. One of the most impressive villas on the Estate, Santa Croce impresses with its fine interior design and large infinity pool that seems to float above the valley of Murlo.

Florence and Rome are within two hours’ drive of the Estate and Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi and Orvieto are all closeby. The region’s capital city Perugia is just 20 minutes away and offers a wealth of cultural activities that include opera and the famous Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate festivals. Other spectacular hilltop towns include Cortona and Preggio, the latter with its annual classical music festival, as well as the annual Montone Film Festival which attracts an international audience

Nearest restaurant:

Il Caldaro is located in an old farmhouse on the Murlo estate, near the little village of La Bruna which has been transformed into a stunningly, stylish restaurant and farm shop.

Guests can enjoy lunch, dinner, drinks or linger over a coffee within a cosy ambience, with leather armchairs, copper tables and a large old stone fireplace, or, outside, under the shaded terrace or the centuries-old oak tree with its panoramic view.

Caldaro’s fine cuisine is rich in local traditions using fresh ingredients as well as handmade pizzas expertly cooked in a wood fired oven.

A little shop with pasta sauces made daily by our restaurant chef’s, home-made bread, local cheeses and cold cuts, without forgetting the Estate’s own grassy green olive oil is available for everyone who wants to taste the most exquisite and organic Umbrian products.

Perfect for parties, events and celebrations, il Caldaro’s enchanting atmosphere reflects the true Umbrian lifestyle where it is easy to lose your sense of time.
