Villa Dolce Vita

6 Bedroom Sleeps 12 7 Bath Pool


Just outside the little village of Porano, in the midst of 400 ancient olive trees sits Villa Dolce Vita.

Upon arriving, you will be greeted by the timeless charm of its exterior with rustic walls that whisper tales of the past. Once inside, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the contrast of elegant, contemporary interiors of a luxurious villa.


Villa Dolce Vita spans over two floors, with the ground floor being the heart of this Villa. A cosy living room with plush sofas, fireplace and TV is found right next to the dining room. Adjacent to the dining room there’s the modern, fully equipped kitchen and a laundry room. For those who love outdoor cooking, a door from the kitchen leads to a spacious barbecue and a pizza oven area. Perfect for an Italian Pizza night!


The Villa offers versatile sleeping arrangements, by having two bedrooms on the ground floor, ideal for those guests who prefer easy access without stairs. Further two bedrooms are found on the first floor, both boasting balconies with stunning views. Finally the sixth bedroom is located in an annex for added privacy.


After a long day of sightseeing, melt your muscle tensions by visiting the intimate and private Finnish Sauna and Steam Bath. As you step outside the Villa, the gorgeous pool invites you for a lovely dip whilst soaking up the Umbrian sun. The pool is surrounded by loungers and outside seating, perfect for family gatherings. This exclusive pool is open from April to October.


After indulging in the delicious Italian cuisine, you can work it off in the private gym by the garden. It’s fully equipped with Technogym equipment and fully air-conditioned.
