la sommità - cottage
Doubles 3 Bathrooms 3
Cottage is a charming, independent, luxury 3-bedroom holiday home for rent in Italy, part of the estate La Sommità, beautifully located on a panoramic position on the Tuscan-Umbrian border. This lovely vacation rental with a shared pool and tennis court is an ideal solution for families with children or couples for a relaxed Italian stay.
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 Sommità 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 Sommità 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 Sommità 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.

"This was my 4th visit to Tuscany/Umbria and my first time to experience La Sommità. This place is over the top!!!! The lodging was phenomenal, especially considering the buildings are something like 600 years old. The cleanliness, the attention to detail, and the modern amenities...truly were amazing. And the views were breathtaking. We sat for hours just gazing at the vista. It is so rural and ripe with history. But just as important was the onsite staff that took care of us. Sonia and team were amazing. At our request, arranged a phenomenal 'last minute' private wine tasting tour in less than 24 hours. Great recommendations on the favorites of locals for restaurants (hidden secrets) and places to visit. As important is the location. It was an easy travel to many destinations: Siena, Firenze, Cortona, San Gimignano. Plus we discovered some little walled towns that, in my opinion, were better than the brand names. Less tourists to compete with...and you get to see the real world that many Italians live in. Hands Down..the entire experience was phenomenal. I will be returning to Italy and that region... and can't imagine staying anywhere else. Home in Italy assistance was great, on a scale of 1-5...I’d give it a 10!!! "

"Perhaps a little late, but be assured that we had a wonderfull time again in Italy. Both villas (La Sommita Cottage and Arcelle) were great and the owners/caretakers were very kind and helpfull. It was our second year in Arcelle but we are already considering going back next year. The scenery is simply amazing, the food is the best and the people are lovely."
