Description from manager

Other than the wonderful restorations, little has changed at the private hamlet La Sommità in the last 600 years. Today, this exclusive property is a luxury vacation retreat for rent in Umbria, only 2 kilometres from Tuscany. The renovation of this very old and valuable estate has been carried out fully respecting the original beauty and structure, carefully bringing out the most significant characteristics; the beautiful mottled stone and round arches.

Terra-cotta floor tiles, oak-beam ceilings, rustic antiques and bare stone walls create the finest country rustic effect with city-elegant furnishings and completely modern kitchens and bathrooms.

Set among the landscape which has formed the background to so many paintings, La Sommita’ radiates from every view a picture of harmony and beauty.

Indeed, this is a special place for special people who appreciate the mystic atmosphere of the countryside. It is a place to relax by the pool or under the cypress trees, to play tennis or enjoy a sauna.

La Sommita’ is also a centre from which you can visit the most interesting cultural and religious spots of Italy such as Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto, Orvieto, Arezzo, all of which are a short drive away.

Guests of the La Sommita’ are lodged in 5 beautifully decorated, spacious stone houses, two of which, the Cottage and Limonaia (Lemon House), stand on the hill below the old chapel, looking out over the valley. The other three, Olivi (Olives), Cipressi (Cypresses), and Ginestra (Broom Flower) are located among the stone farm buildings and face each other across a piazza alive with colourful flowers.

All houses have quality furnishings and the kitchens are fully equipped with all modern amenities, i.e., dishwasher, washing machine, satellite and local television, cd player, and a separate telephone line with a meter.

Limonaia is a lovely and bright independent house located in a very secluded spot. It is the perfect solution for a couple or for a family with a small child.
