Monte Santa Maria Tiberina  | Bedrooms: 5 | Sleeps: 10

A welcoming and simply beautiful house tastefully decorated with maximum focus on luxury. Set amidst the Umbrian hills with stunning views. Visitors just adore enjoying every moment in these gorgeous surroundings around a unique green marble pool, and can easily slip out from the back door into the conveniently located sleepy village, for a quiet coffee or delicious meal. Making it the perfect getaway either lazing in the sun taking in the view or being spoilt by the excellent maid service or dining in the local restaurant.

The house's location in the village makes sure that it uniquely combines the beauty of the countryside with the practical aspect of being part of this tiny village. Visitors will feel private yet part of the true Umbrian Life.

Conveniently located on the cusp between Tuscany and Umbria La Taverna al Monte offers the possibility to visit some of the most attractive sights of central Italy like Perugia, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Cortona. The house itself has a long history with its spectacular terrace and garden. Originally a series of towers, it was later united as one building and served as hotel, convent and children's school before its current renovation. Lovingly and carefully restored by one of the most prominent designer duo in London, it perfectly combines the 16th century flair with amenities requested by discerned travellers: high lofty beamed ceilings, meter thick stone walls, gorgeous views from every window are in impeccable harmony with designer furniture, luxurious bathrooms and private pool.

The villa

Because everyone’s concept of a villa holiday is different, we have created a formula designed to offer privacy, flexibility and the freedom to run your own holiday or call upon us to help open up a world of possibilities. Our villas are normally rented on a villa-only weekly basis and are ideal for those seeking independence and privacy. We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay. For full details of concierge inclusions speak to an A&K Travel Consultant on 0845 618 2205.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.

If you would prefer to discuss your specific requirements, whether it’s in relation to the property or about your stay in general, please do contact us using the Enquire page or please do give us a call for a chat.
