LIVING SPACES
Ground Floor: A large living room features plenty of space and seating for entertaining, including two sofas and a large LCD TV, and connects to the dining room. Both the living room and the dining room have double doors that lead to the outdoor gathering areas. The exposed wood-beam ceilings in both rooms, combined with the wooden and wicker furnishings, gentle lighting, and tasteful yet restrained use of decorative elements create a relaxing and airy atmosphere. The simple yet functional kitchen is well equipped and has a small table for a simple bite or for additional counter space. A guest bathroom is also on this floor.

OUTDOOR FEATURES
Indulge in relaxing moments at the private heated infinity pool (13 m x 5 m x 1.5 m deep, with built-in steps), furnished with parasols and sunbeds. Enjoy breakfast under the Umbrian sky on the furnished terrace next to the kitchen. There is another terrace with a dining table and seating for eight in front of the dining room, while the area in front of the living room is furnished with armchairs and a sofa. A furnished BBQ area, including a table for six, is available. Guests can also enjoy a fenced and landscaped private garden.

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS
Lavise offers plenty of gathering spaces and amazing views for enjoying time together. The villa is part of a family-owned estate that is surrounded by rivers, fishing lakes, a waterfall, castles, and the estate’s restaurant (about a 10-min drive). The estate offers a wide variety of activities, from yoga classes and massage treatments, to hunting (wild boar, in autumn), trail hiking and 18-hole golfing. Nearby are a small village with shops (10 min), and the famed towns of Perugia (25 min) and Assisi (40 min), among many others. Florence and Rome are also within reach, each about a 2-hr drive away. (Note: due to occasionally steep and stony country roads, low-height cars are not recommended for reaching the villa.)

Congratulation to you all for creating such a magnificent paradise high in the hills. The thought that has gone into the creation of such wonderful gardens have been much appreciated as has the unceasing care and dedication from the Murlo team. We have enjoyed watching the fireflies at night which light up the garden.

Due to its proximity to Tuscany, any traveler who goes from Florence to Rome by land should pass through Umbria. This region is worth a visit of its own for the beautiful landscapes and enchanting lakes. Several filmmakers found it to be the perfect location for movies such as The English Patient, Life is Beautiful and Under the Tuscan Sun (despite its namesake). Perugia is the capital city and is renowned for hosting the annual Umbria Jazz Festival, held in July, and the Eurochocolate Festival at the Perugina Chocolate Factory, in October.
There are several notable tourist attractions throughout the region. Lake Trasimeno, the fourth largest lake in Italy, offers a plethora of activities for the sporty vacationers. The medieval town of Deruta has been producing hand-made majolica ceramics for centuries and it is the ideal place to buy some home decor to bring home. Check the Ceramics Museum on the hilltop main piazza. Spoleto is arguably one of Umbria's most beautiful hill towns, and renowned host of the Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of the Two Worlds), annual summer music and opera festival held each June to early July. You may also want to sample the Umbrian wine along the Sagrantino Wine Road near Spoleto and Moltefalco, which is lined with wineries, many of them open for tastings.
Assisi is the birthplace of St. Francis, where you can enjoy a visit to the Basilica di San Francesco which is listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO. Last, but not least, is Orvieto known for its wine (Orvieto Classico, a dry fine white wine) and because is one of the main centers of Italy's Slow Food. Do not miss to visit its magnificent Duomo, considered the most glorious example of Italian Gothic style.
