Umbria 5 bedroom villa








Fonte Cicerum is a 5 bedroom villa, surrounded by olive groves and and nestled on the Umbria / Tuscany border. Originally dating back to the nineteenth century, the property has been lovingly restored by the owners and furnished with pieces collected on their travels around the globe as well as family treasures.


Inside, the main farmhouse measures approximately 300 square metres and has four double bedrooms and four bathrooms. There are also relaxing living spaces, a library with plentiful array of books, separate dining room and well equipped kitchen. The fifth bedroom is located in a separate dependence within the grounds of the estate and just a few metres from the main house. This bedroom also has it's own bathroom.

Guests enter into the dining area with large table seating up to 10 guests. Cupboards house plenty of crockery and glassware. Adjacent to this room is the kitchen whilst a step leads to a living area with comfortable seating, well-stocked bookshelves and an array of vinyl records to enjoy listening to. There is a corner fireplace for those staying in the colder Winter months. Also on the ground floor is a spacious master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Also on this floor is another bathroom with bath tub, ideal for those staying with younger children. This bathroom also houses the washing machine. Upstairs, there are 3 further bedrooms. Two of these bedrooms share an adjacent bathroom whilst the remaining bedroom again has an ensuite bathroom with shower. The 4th bedroom can be made up as either a twin or double bedroom and, in fact, for larger families, there is also a sofa bed in here allowing the room to sleep up to 3 people if required. Also on this floor is a second living area equipped with large TV with SKY satellite channels. This also has doors leading directly to the outside of the property.

All the bedrooms have air conditioning units. However, this is truly a property which stays cool even during the hot Summer months and, since the windows have been fitted with a special thermal glass that will keep out the heat if closed, you may find you don't even need to use the air conditioning to keep cool. 

Outside there is a spacious private garden measuring 4000 square metres, planted with numerous fruit and olive trees, grasses and herbs which fill the air with their delightful aroma. Rows of lavender line the path leading to the eco infinity swimming pool. Guests are treated to stunning views in all directions. The pool is also cleverly positioned so that guests sitting at the pool area will be treated to stunning views of the sunset each evening. There is a Weber BBQ for those who like to cook outdoors, whilst there is also covered loggia providing the perfect setting for a dinner al fresco.

The villa is ideally located within walking distance of the village of Paciano which boasts 3 excellent restaurants, a butcher, pharmacy and several bars and cafes. It is also just 30 minutes from Cortona, 15 minutes from Lake Trasimeno, 50 minutes from Montalcino and Pienza and just 80 minutes from Florence and 2 hours from Rome.

We absolutely loved it....!

Just wanted to tell you what a fantastic time we had in Italy!! Thank you so, so much for recommending Fonte Cicerum to us, we absolutely loved it and Alina the owner, her mum Lucia, Walter the chef, all fab! The cookery course was brilliant, we all thoroughly enjoyed it and we were really sad to leave on Saturday!! Italy is officially our new favourite place in the world, it really did exceed our expectations so much!! It is truly a little slice of heaven!! Once again Jo thank you so much, we would never have found this place on our own, your recommendations and personal connection really helped us feel confident in making this decision!
