Villa Elefante

Fully restored in 2012, this stunning castello commands stunning views of the valley between Umbria and Tuscany. Although historic at heart, its eight grand bedrooms offer all the luxuries of the modern world.

Villa Elefante is a special place for families and friends to escape to together, and for all those searching for the ultimate luxury experience in Umbria. The castle features four poster beds in most bedrooms, fireplaces in each room, velvet drapes, renaissance tapestries, frescoes, artwork and furniture. Combined with the incredible view, this really is a magical place.

The castle is an ideal home base for exploring both the Umbrian and Tuscan countryside and is just 30 minutes from Trasimeno Lake, a naturalistic heaven for kids with many activities such as swimming and kayaking. Half an hour north is the historic town of Gubbio, while the ski station of Forchecanapine and the traditional villages of Norcia and Cascia, known for delicious ham and salami, are an hour away.

The valley between Tuscany and Umbria is now famous for its fine wines and visiting wineries, such as Antinori's Castello della Sella, is a must for aficionados.

We can provide a local chef to cook delicious meals for lunch and dinner, if required, in addition to the housekeeper who keeps the castle in tip-top shape.

Rome, Florence and Pisa airports are each about two hours away, while Perugia’s airport is only a 30 minutes drive. Perugia is a beautiful city, which must be visited during a stay at Villa Elephante, while the rest of Umbria also offers a rich artistic, historical and cultural pedigree, as well as abundant natural beauty, with the added benefit of no mass tourism.
