People say the nicest things…
We recently had the opportunity to stay at Villa San Martino overlooking the lush Umbrian Landscape.
The setting and villa far exceeded our expectations. The beautifully restored home honored the history and materials of its area, simple and elegant design. It seems every window had a unique and lovely vista as light filtered through the wood beamed ceilings and rooms.
The gardens, pool and multiple outdoor dining areas created a magical setting that had such good energy we could barely pull ourselves away to visit the all of the tempting tourist destinations in the area. It truly was a home away from home.
I have an art gallery and our dear friends whom we traveled with - a top designer (from San Francisco) - were completely enamored with this place. Needless to say, we are very particular about our surroundings so the fact we were so happy with Villa San Martino says a great deal.
Thank you for all of the love you have put into this wonderful home and gardens. We will be back!
