If you are looking for an under-the-radar contemporary villa for rent immersed in the Italian countryside, this gorgeous holiday home is the place to be.
Located at the border of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, between Rome and Florence, Livia is situated in one of the most charming areas of central Italy. The villa is located on top of a hill, which contributes to a breathtaking view of 360 degrees. Livia is surrounded by a rural Tuscan landscape that offers an unspoiled beauty divided into magnificent oak woods, peaceful pastures and classic orchards and vineyards. The villa used to be an old stone farmhouse from the late 1700s, it was part of a rich system of farms that cultivated the land for the noble landowners from the nearby towns of Proceno and Trevinano since the middle ages. Abandoned since the 1950s, it was purchased in 2005 and fully restored in 2006-2007 with the goal of preserving its beauty and its rightful place in the landscape, while converting it into a luxury residence with all modern comforts. The structure has been restored in the traditional Tuscan style reusing the original stone and other materials, complemented with new terracotta bricks and chestnut beams, all manufactured locally and by hand. This spacious and airy villa can serve as a home for a family or a group of friends who want to explore the beauty and history of central Italy or enjoy outdoor activities.

"We had a wonderful stay at Villa Livia.
It is an excellent, picturesque house, which is modern in style whilst combining many features of the original farmhouse which stood on the site. The floor plan flows very well, and unlike many converted rural properties, has no ‘dead’ spaces which you don’t really use. The kitchen is large and well equipped, and the bathrooms are contemporary, well appointed and comfortable. Having mosquito netting on all the windows was a real bonus.
The house stands in an unparalleled location, at an elevation of more than 600 metres, with 360 degree views in every direction - towards Trevinano and Monte Cetona in the north, and Acquapendente and Monte Civitella in the south.
Valeria cooked us five wonderful meals while we were there, and the gardeners and cleaners kept the house and it’s surroundings in excellent order. We really enjoyed being able to pick vegetables and herbs from the garden, and then use them in our cooking straight away. The pool was beautiful, and one of the cleanest I have encountered.
Just a few small issues to mention:
(1) The inside handle on the front door was not fixed on properly, and kept coming off in my hand when I opened it.
(2) An electric rather than gas kettle would be useful.
(3) It would be good to have more shade near the pool."

"We stayed a family of 7 adults and three small children in this wonderful house. Having a room each and with own private bathroom (some of them even with a bathtub!!) and with the most stunning view was just amazing. The children families were located upstairs, and despite of the noisy stairs maid of iron everyone was very satisfied with the calm and relaxing indoor ambient. The house facilities were just amazing, clean and well equipped, and there was room and space for alle of us and our time to time different interests. The out door area is hard to describe in words - the vegetable garden supplied us with fresh goods and greens every day and were now all very keen on challenging the Italien kitchen in our own houses. The holiday spent in this house was a wonderful experience, and Valeria (the house manager) was kind and quick to answer any question you may rise during your stay. She made our stay easy and peaceful. My warmest recommendations go to Home in Italy for giving us the opportunity to experience family time in such a wonderful place like Livia in beautiful Tuscany."

"This is an amazing country house on the border of Lazio, Umbria, and Tuscany. We really enjoyed the pool, the views, the garden, and dining on the patio. If you're looking for a rural escape with privacy, this is perfect. We took a number of day trips to towns in the area - there are many interesting sights within an hour of the house. Home in Italy was wonderful; made the check-in process personal and smooth, and we enjoyed having a few meals cooked by the staff and organized by Home In Italy."
