Aptly named Casa Ceramica for all the decorative hand-painted tiles that adorn its colorful rooms, your Umbria villa is built on the side of a hill on three levels, with many doors and windows opening onto covered porticos that lead out to the delightful terraces and the superb views on all sides. All around the villa are lush, beautifully kept gardens with an abundance of flowers and fragrant shrubs, while the pool and surrounding terrace are in prime position for soaking up the sun and relaxing amid the sweeping Umbria views.
The centerpiece of the grand hall is the imposing majolica wood stove, set between French doors that open onto the portico leading out to the pool. An archway opposite leads to the superb kitchen, another masterpiece of the tiler’s art where the decorative themes combine with the best in chef’s equipment. The whole house is a treasure trove of choice antiques and collector’s items, providing a feast of decorative arts along with all the amenities that make for a luxurious and memorable Umbria vacation.
