Parker Villas Exclusive - A private pocket listing available nowhere else

It's hard to envision this oasis of sheer tranquility is less than 15 minutes from the bustling heart of ancient Orvieto. Gazing across gently rolling wooded hills, Villa Mirabella is lavishly private.

Villa Mirabella's splendidly tended grounds appeal to those of any age. A gazebo by the pool and a covered portico with built-in barbecue at the entrance are equipped for outdoor dining under the stars. To the rear of the farmhouse, an outdoor sitting patio enjoys pretty views over the verdant countryside. Beside the patio, an area is set up for ping pong and bocce. Bocce is a simple game loved by all yet mastered by few.

Past guests tell us their children are fascinated by the ministrations of the caretaker as he tends to the colorful family peacock and gathers fresh eggs from the henhouse, 15 feet away. A family of cats lazily patrol the estate and provide all the security required in this corner of paradise.

A recent renovation accomplished the owner's dream as the original stone walls, brick archways and terracotta floors come to life against a backdrop of soft pastels and comfortable furnishings. Overall, the feeling is one of harmony, light and space especially in the generous sized main dining room designed to include a country style kitchen at one end. A second comtemporary style kitchen, new baths and screened windows add functionality to the country decor. Portable fans are conveniently found in each bedroom.

On Monday, guests of Villa Mirabella are treated to a complimentary tour and tasting at a nearby winery, courtesy of the villa owners. The winery is located 4 miles from the house and offers a tasting of three estate wines. The appointment time is scheduled when booking the villa. The price also includes a mid week refresh cleaning with a towel change, a laptop with WiFi and five mountain bikes. Meals, a cooking class and additional cleaning may be arranged when booking.

From the property, a wide gravel lane winds through three wooded miles before merging with the main road to Orvieto. The entire route from house to town takes under 15 minutes by car. Orvieto, built on a high volcanic outcrop is stunning to look at from afar and even more thrilling to explore from within. Orvieto's Etruscan roots go back thousands of years and run deep through an amazing cave system carved beneath the city.

Orvieto's main square showcases one of Italy's best loved cathedrals. Il Duomo is revered for both its art and the impressive architecture. Unlike most hill towns, an elevator leads from the parking area up into the mostly level town. A walking path outside the medieval walls circles the town making it a joy for walkers and joggers. Restaurants featuring Orvieto's signature white wine, Orvieto Classico abound. Intriguing shops of all kinds fill the streets, including one belonging to the owners of the villa, who for three generations have run an organic butcher shop featuring homemade Umbrian sausage. Stop in, say hello and stock up for some seriously good grilling back at home.

While there is much to see and do in this part of Italy, many of our clients fall in love with Orvieto and hardly ever venture out beyond the medieval walls. Orvieto's train station has frequent service reaching downtown Rome in 90 minutes. Within easy drives from Villa Mirabella are: Lake Bolsena reached in 30 minutes; Cittą della Pieve or Todi: 45; Perugia or Pienza: 60; Montepulciano or Cortona: 70; Siena, Spoleto, Assisi or Rome 90.
