OVERVIEW Villa Subtilia
This beautiful and recently updated villa is located in an intact 16th-century farmhouse, right at the top of one of the rolling hills of the Tenuta di Murlo estate, affording a spectacular view over the medieval castle of Antognolla and its 18-hole championship golf course. While providing the comfort and services of a five-star resort, this superlative residence offers the unique opportunity of living in the heart of a natural reserve graced with olive trees, woodlands and green valleys.
The villa consists of the main building with six bedrooms, a separate two-bedroom apartment in that same building, and a charming separate one-bedroom cottage called Tiglio. The elegant décor of the interiors features a number of antiques, classic modern furnishings, gorgeous wooden beams, lovely floral prints in the bedrooms, and local tiles from nearby Deruta in the bathrooms.
The common spaces and three bedrooms of the larger apartment were completely refurbished and redecorated in 2018. Guests will love the newly fitted open-space kitchen where they can prepare, using fresh seasonal ingredients, delicious meals – which they will be happy to savour, along with the stunning scenery, on the villa’s most pleasurable terrace.
Guests can swim in the sublime infinity pool, take walks through the nature reserve, visit the surrounding hilltop villages and cultural sites, or relax under the shadow of an age-old tree. They will also enjoy, no doubt, the Antognolla 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., accessible in 3 minutes, and where they’ll be able to have a good meal in the clubhouse restaurant.
The vast private grounds surrounding Subtilia provide privacy as well as ample space to leisurely explore the surrounding woodlands and verdant nature reserve.
In the off-season, the villa can be rented in separate parts: the main villa, with or without the Tiglio cottage and the Olivo apartment (the latter can be viewed and booked here ).

- Umbria has an enormous variety and number of traditional feasts throughout the year. The local communities treat these events as an opportunity to confirm their roots and identity and it is a wonderful opportunity for tourists to experience genuine expressions of Umbrian culture and folklore. We can provice a month by month list of the events in the area of the Antognolla and Murlo Estates.
- to exemplify: Gubbio is known for its palio, the Corsa dei Ceri, a spectacular run held every year on May 15, in which three teams run through throngs of cheering supporters up much of the mountain from the main square in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli to the basilica of S. Ubaldo, each team carrying a statue of their saint.
- Gubbio is so perfect, it looks like a medieval movie set. The main monuments and sightseeings of the city include the Roman Theatre which is still in use for performances, the massive Palazzo dei Consoli, the duomo and the Palazzo Ducale.
- In Orvieto, don’t miss the fanciful Gothic Duomo, which soars seven stories high. Inside are magnificently vibrant and graphic frescoes of the Apocalypse by Luca Signorelli.
- In Assisi, you’ll want to visit the famous basilica dedicated to Italy’s patron saint, Francis. Frescoes by Giotto vividly tell the story of St. Francis’s life. In the Piazza del Comune you’ll find a church inserted into the remains of the ancient Temple of Minerva. Above town stands the Rocca Maggiore, a fortress that protected citizens during attacks. For a dose of nature and spiritual contemplation, walk to the hermitage, the Eremo dell Carceri.
- In Spoleto, visit the Roman theater and the archeological museum for a view of ancient Umbria. Go see the pre-Renaissance frescoes by Fra Lippo Lippi and Pinturicchio. The church of San Salvatore is one of Italy’s oldest and is set within the remains of an ancient Roman temple.
- In Deruta, stroll the color-splashed streets where Italy’s most famous hand-made ceramics are produced.
- Visit charming Citta’ di Castello, which packs a lot into such a small town, with palaces, churches, towers, and –of course- a castle, all sitting pretty and begging to be explored.
- In Todi you’ll find all the main sights conveniently concentrated onto the Gothic Piazza del Popolo, which is itself set over top of an ancient Roman cistern system. Below town is the striking Renaissance church of Santa Maria della Consolazione.
- In Perugia, be sure to see the frescoes by local artist Pietro Perugino in the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria and in the town hall’s Sala del Cambio. Step back to ancient times at the Etruscan arch and Etruscan well. Enjoy the lively atmosphere at the large fountain, the Fontana Maggiore. Sample the chocolates named for the city.
- Perugia plays host to international visitors with its acclaimed annual Umbria Jazz Festival, held each July. A wildly popular chocolate festival every October pays homage to the city’s sweet side.
- Spoleto offers up culture, dramatic performances and musical concerts during the Festival dei Due Mondi.
- Gubbio’s Roman theatre is a dramatic setting for summertime, open-air performances.
- For children: Maridiana is a farm that breeds Alpacas, angora goats and selected sheep, situated in Tiber Valley approximately 10 minutes from Umbertide.
- Citta Della Domenica Park: A wonderful zoo / adventure land on the outskirts of Perugia. It features both domestic and wild animals, various play areas and a train. It is a lovely day out for the family with young children. www.cittadelladomenica.com

There are about 300 species, and you can find a full series of services (bar and dining area, games area, football field, volley field, bowls field, picnic area) that will allow you to spend relaxing hours with the family. The park is situated just off the E45 south of Deruta, which is approximately a 40 minute drive from the villa. www.parcodelsole.com
