Carmela is set at the foot of Monte Tezio, in a protected valley of Umbria region. Formerly a church immersed in the greenery of a once abandoned valley, it has now been converted into a luxury family villa for holiday rentals. About half an hour by car to Tuscany, the position of Carmela is perfect to explore both the regions.
The 11th-century church with its adjoining farmhouse has now been turned into an exquisite country house accommodating up to fourteen guests. The villa features eight bedrooms in total, with six doubles and two singles. Being the rooms restored using the original materials, the property is now a fascinating place to spend your holiday. The main church area together with a recently discovered small crypt is now an unusual elegant room, imposing in its sense of peace and history.
One kilometer of gravel road connects the villa to the main road. Umbertide, the nearest small town is on about a fifteen-minute drive and Perugia is about twenty-five minutes away. The nearest village is Pierantonio and its shops are at ten minutes driving.
Various sports activities can be arranged in the area: Antognolla Golf Course is located only on a five-minute drive from the villa. Lake Trasimeno, reachable in twenty-five minutes, offers a vast array of water sports including sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing. Alternatively, you can visit one of the islands on the lake: Isola Maggiore and Isola Polvese, wandering in the national parks, discovering the local flora and fauna.
Tennis is available at a nearby private court located within the estate, reachable within a short drive, while horse riding is organized at a number of riding stables nearby where you can go for a ride in the countryside. If you just want to be a tourist, the area offers plenty of must-see sites such as Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto, Gubbio, Spello. A stay at Carmela is perfect for all those seeking relaxation in the lush nature of Umbria, Italy's most fascinating and sacred territory.

"From the moment we arrived, we couldn't believe we were somewhere so quiet and beautiful.
The estate was just out of this world in terms of nature, the bedrooms were just more than perfect.
There was so much to do...huge swimming pool, tennis court 10 mins walk away, golf course 5 mins drive and a fabulous restaurant just 5 mins drive away. "

"The interior is warm, inviting, and the perfect blend of casual elegance with all the modern comforts.
Plenty of space to gather together as a group or retreat to a number of places (indoor or outdoor) and curl up with a good book and a glass of wine.
The property is nothing short of breathtaking, with rolling hills and paths, with endless possibilities for easy strolls or more challenging hikes."

"The location is absolutely amazing. Nestled between some mountains, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, I couldn't have asked for a more peaceful setting.
The buildings themselves are wonderful. Amazingly restored, full of solid stone and aged wood.
Truly a magical place unparalleled in beauty and ease, quiet but not too far away from the supermarket and hill top towns."
