Umbria villa to hire with private pool - Located in a hidden, unspoilt part of Italy, this villa offers a perfect refuge from modern life deep in the Umbrian countryside, yet just over a mile away from the local village of Amelia, its shops and restaurants.
The property itself is attractively furnished throughout with stone walls, wooden beam ceilings and tiled floors - décor is neutral, light, airy and spacious with all bedrooms fitted with televisions. The garden is large and mainly laid to lawn, with inspiring 360-degree views over the surrounding rolling hills and valleys. The sizeable pool is set in a panoramic spot of the garden, where guests will be able to relax and soak up the sunshine and the beauty of the peaceful Umbrian countryside.
As well as the perfect country retreat, Boscaglia is conveniently positioned to reach the local historical village of Amelia and many fascinating Umbrian hilltop towns such as Todi, Terni or Orvieto. The Sibillini Mountains National Park is nearby, with opportunities for water rafting, hiking and cycling, whilst for those seeking more relaxing pastimes, Amelia also has fascinating Roman ruins and archaeological sites. For visitors wishing to experience Rome, there is a train station at Narni-Amelia that enters directly into the "eternal city", thus avoiding the inconvenience of driving or parking in the capital.

This villa is situated in the historical and scenic area around the town of Amelia. You can go for walks in the wooded grounds and, if you want a memorable hands-on experience, open field work sessions can be organised according to the season - from grape-picking to olive-raking to helping in the oil and wine production process. All the products of the farm, such as olive oil, wine, walnuts, figs, grapes and eggs are, of course, made available to guests. Guided tours of the local wineries take place at weekends (August, September and October). For sports, there is rafting and kayaking on the Corno River, or ice-skating in Ussita. Staying at Boscaglia will offer you the chance to get to know some of Umbria's most beautiful places, yet you are near enough to Rome to enjoy day-trips to the city when you want a change of pace. This spacious villa is a really relaxing place to stay. As it is at a slight remove from the main tourist hotspots, you will be able to enjoy Italy at its authentic best.
