Other than the wonderful restorations, little has changed at La Sommità in the last 600 years. 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 center 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.

Whilst the Villa was a little isolated from nearby villages and the road to the villa was narrow etc., the villa was perfect for our family wedding. We booked this villa from Australia, without visiting so it was a risk. it was a great relief when we arrived and the reviews we had read and the photographs we had seen, were reality.
The staff were exceptional and made our our guests stay , a memorable experience.
The wedding was a wonderful day. Great weather and the most beautiful setting for this special day. The staff of the villa together with our exceptional wedding planner, Monina, made this day so memorable, in so many ways.
The apartments at the Villa were very clean, well appointed and offered our guests a chance to wind down in their own apartments., and rest up for the next planned event.
The grounds of the villa are beautifully mantained as are the apartments. The villa staff were there to help us in planning many lunches and dinners., and always with a smile. Sonia, The Manager, was amazing. She was always ready to help with many queries from our guests. She organised for shopping for supplies to be done and organised some pizza deliveries. Sonia and her team made our stay so memorable. Thank you to the wonderful team at Home In Italy who were so efficient and courteous in helping us plan this week.

"First of all, Rachele Paolucci, was unbelievable. If she lived in California I would hire her! I have never had someone so professional and informed. Give this girl a raise!
The villa was great. A true dream come true. I would highly recommend La Sommità to all. We will definitely use Home In Italy again and will stay again in the Villa (Hamlet)."
