Villa La Corte is located on an isolated hill just outside the tiny village of Castel dell'Aquila, in the heart of southern Umbria. The house, dating back to the 50s, has recently been renovated. Completely clad in light exposed stone, it features rooms of great charm and elegance, finely decorated in delicate shades of gray and white, with wooden furniture and carefully matched accessories. The multiple entrances on the ground floor make it continually accessible from the outside. The large living room, which includes the comfortable lounge and dining area connected to the professional kitchen, expands out onto the large portico in front and onto the adjacent swimming pool, consenting full use of the lovely well-tended garden. At the centre of an area of high natural value, in which culture and history harmoniously combine with ecologically intact and scenically beautiful environments, within a radius of a few kilometres you will discover treasures of undiminished charm like Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto, Perugia, Assisi and Norcia as well as the beautiful Marmore waterfalls, the famous archaeological area of Carsulae or the suggestive fossil forest of Dunarobba. Castel dell'Aquila, about one kilometre away, will be the reference point for your daily shopping.
The Emma Villas Concierge Team can be reached for any emergencies, or further information you may require during your stay. All useful telephone numbers will be sent together with your booking documents.
Villa La Corte has two floors connected only by an external staircase for a total area of about 160 sq m. A large furnished portico extends along the front of the house; from here the main entrance leads into the living area of the house, consisting of a living room divided into dining area and lounge area with sofas, a fully equipped professional kitchen with barbecue fireplace, a guest bathroom and a laundry room. A flight of steps on one side of the house leads up to the upper floor with two independent entrances: the first opens into a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower while the second leads, through a living area with kitchenette, to two bedrooms, a double and a twin (with joinable beds), sharing a bathroom with shower.

It consists of a luxuriant flat lawned garden dotted with olive trees, oaks and colourful flowers flanking the large portico set up for relaxing in the open air air and the exclusive swimming pool. On one side of the house, next to the large parking area, is a stone structure with a wood oven and hennouse.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
