On the banks of Lake Corbara sits San Martino, a secluded 18th century farmhouse with 10 bedrooms which has been simply yet beautifully restored. Within easy reach of the gorgeous town of Orvieto, the house is superb and the location is spectacular – what more could you want?
The house is set on its own peninsula, surrounded by water on three sides, and as a result it feels wonderfully tranquil and remote. The lovely landscaped grounds stretch out over 25 acres and include a lakeside swimming pool, the house itself is spacious and delightfully furnished, and the local area is unspoilt, historic and picture-perfect. This is a fantastic holiday retreat for a big family or a group of friends looking for peace and privacy.
Lake Corbara lies between Orvieto and Todi among the rolling hills of Southern Umbria. The nearest bar and restaurant are in the tiny village of Corbara just 2.5km away. Within 10 minutes drive is Baschi, with its selection of small shops, bars and restaurants, and Orvieto itself (15-20 minutes) is a beautiful medieval town full of cafes, wine bars, shops, a theatre and a dazzling cathedral. The hills surrounding the lake are home to lots of charming towns, walks and restaurants, the walled city of Todi is rich in art and architecture, and places like Perugia, Assisi, Spoletto, Siena, Florence and Rome are further afield but still easy to reach.
Perugia (1 hour) is served by Ryanair, and Rome Ciampino Airport (1 hr 40 mins) also has flights with Ryanair. Rome Fiumicino Airport (1 hr 40 mins) is served by Easyjet, BA, Alitalia and others.
