Villa Shelly, perched on the very top of Monte Santa Croce, is enchanting for both the flawless workmanship in its restoration and its exceptional position with views across Umbria.
The estate is situated in the centre of Umbria, about a 20-minute drive to the beautiful city of Perugia. In this area, one can enjoy the simple pleasures of the countryside while taking in the art, history, architecture (not to mention delightful food and wine) of the neighbouring towns. Rome, with its ancient ruins, and Florence, with its Renaissance masterpieces, are both within two hours' drive from the estate; meanwhile the scenic Tuscan towns of Siena, Arezzo, and Cortona and the gorgeous Umbrian cities of Assisi, Todi, and Orvieto, are all an easy drive from the villa.
For those who would prefer to stay-in, there is plenty of entertainment to find on the property, which includes a large, private, heated infinity pool; lounge chairs and parasols encircling the pool; a barbecue area; and outdoor dining area with panoramic views.
The villa can welcome up to six guests with its three impeccably decorated bedrooms with welcoming décor with three king-size bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen includes all the state of the art amenities. The property includes a charming dining room and an elegant yet cosy living room.
This estate combines the beauty of antiquity and the comfort of modernity; all of this, on what would seem to be the top of the world. A stay at this fine villa is truly a spectacular retreat.
