Il Gusto del Paese – Fondo Le Teglie

This gorgeous 17th-century farmhouse and stable have been carefully restored to be a luxury getaway in Italy’s wine country! With a rustic sensibility at heart, this five-bedroom offering has been outfitted with modern conveniences and luxury. The main house features four bedrooms, and there’s also a self-contained apartment with one bedroom. Sprawling across 5400 square feet, you won’t find a better spot in the countryside.

The common areas in the main house are wonderful for gathering, welcoming you in with wooden finishes, upscale furnishings, and antique pieces. The exposed brick wall in one living room adds an earthy element to the home, and you’ll love relaxing by a roaring fire at night, with a drink from your personal bar. Exposed wood beams run across the ceiling all the way to the open-concept kitchen, equipped with everything a master chef could need. After a day trip in Umbria or a day spent exploring the wonderful wineries in the area, you’re sure to have worked up an appetite!

In each bedroom, you’ll find the design pays incredible attention to detail, combining soothing hues and elegant finishes to create spaces that exude tranquility. Three bedrooms in the main house offer queen-sized beds, including the master, which also features stunning drapery and access to a lavish master bath. The last bedroom in the main house has two twin beds that can be combined to create a king, if necessary. The self-contained apartment has the final bedroom, which is a king. This apartment also offers a living room/office, a galley kitchen, and table for two.

Surrounded by sweeping countryside vistas, you won’t get enough of the unparalleled outdoor living at Fondo Le Teglie. The expansive, open courtyard offers an exceptional space for dining alfresco, featuring both a grill and a wood-burning pizza oven. On a hot summer’s day, cool off underneath a covered terrace or jump into the private swimming pool for a leisurely swim. You’ll love the feel of the beautifully landscaped gardens and olive groves that surround you, keeping you separate from the rest of the world.

This amazing home sits just over seven miles from the medieval hilltop town of Todi, a stunning town that’s great for meals and exploring, and is well-positioned for day trips into Umbria, which can be arranged through your concierge. The concierge will be available to help you with everything you may desire, including airport transfers, private chefs, wine tours, city guides, and so much more.

Above all else, make sure you explore the stunning wine country that surrounds Umbria. Home to some of Italy’s most gorgeous wine estates and cantinas, the city has also become a hot spot for foodies, as well as wine lovers. Your concierge will help you arrange wine estate tours, private tastings, wine-paired meals, and a way of transportation around the area. You will want for nothing!

Experience the serenity of Umbria’s spectacular wine country at your own private getaway!

Everything about our trip was great. The house is wonderful on the inside and also on the outside. The views from our windows and front patio were spectacular. The kitchen was perfect if you like to cook with lots of spices and oils available for use. The location was great as we enjoyed visiting so many of the small towns within an hour's drive of the villa, with some as close as 15-20 minuets. The owner is fantastic and was a wealth of information about things to do and places to eat. If you visit the villa do yourself a favor and take her advice on some of the tours and restaurants as you won't be sorry. Do not pass up the Pardi Linnen factory and lunch at their winery as it is a fantastic adventure. Thank you, Susan for all of your help and the use of your beautiful home.”

Susan and her villa in Umbria is the stuff from story tales. The villa is the definition of perfection, clean, beautiful, well appointed, and in a rural and beautiful location. I highly recommend using the chef. I can't say enough good things about this villa. Bart”

The Perfect Italian Vacation!

This stunning Italian villa truly elevated our stay in Umbria! A much-needed getaway with four women, it far exceeded any expectations, and we were already in love with just the photos. Inside and out, the property is the essence of luxurious Italian charm and the views are nothing short of breathtaking. The concierge was on-hand to greet, gave a most informative tour, and left an impressive welcome basket of fresh food and a bottle of local wine. The owner thought of every convenience, from toiletries to cookware, and she is a wealth of knowledge on the area, as well. If you’re unfamiliar with Italy or Umbria, she can arrange a variety of tours and events. Geographically, it is within easy driving distance of several towns that were on our list to explore, which included Perugia, Orvieto, Civita de Bagnoregio, and several more. I hope to stay at Fondo Le Teglie again!”
