Villa Piccola Chiesa

4 Bedroom Sleeps 8 4 Bath Pool


This historic estate boasts a charming four-bedroom residence dating back to the 14th century, christened in honor of Saint Sabinus, the esteemed Bishop of Spoleto, to whom the quaint church on the grounds was formerly dedicated to. Once a bustling hub of spiritual activity, this church held significance as a focal point for the community of Murlo, where locals gathered for Sunday Mass until the late 1970s. Among the oldest structures on the estate, the dwelling exudes an aura of antiquity, with its timeless terracotta tile floors, original kitchen, and formidable stone walls, offering a glimpse into its storied past as the heart of social interaction on the estate.


Nestled amidst the estate's expansive and meticulously landscaped gardens, the property features a breathtaking terrace, crafted from warm wood, offering a serene retreat with sweeping vistas of the surrounding landscape, providing an idyllic setting for relaxation and contemplation. A stunning outdoor infinity pool, surrounded by sun loungers overlooks the rolling Umbrian hills.  Adjacent to the pool, an outdoor hot-tub beckons with its perpetual warmth, offering relaxation amidst the picturesque surroundings. Al Fresco dining is a must when staying at Villa Piccola Chiesa and thus this Villa is equipped with outdoor furnishings ready for memories to be created.


Inside the Villa the rustic country-style kitchen is outfitted with a comprehensive array of modern amenities.  The main living and dining room that were formerly a chapel adds to the beauty of this Villa.


Each of the four meticulously appointed bedrooms offers the luxury of en-suite facilities, providing privacy and convenience for all occupants. The master bedroom, situated on the ground floor, offers a touch of indulgence with direct access to the tranquil garden, allowing guests to seamlessly transition between indoor comfort and outdoor serenity, enveloped in the beauty of the estate's surroundings.


Various excursions, activities and services such as in-house chef at the Villa itself or cooking classes, can be easily booked through the estate’s concierge team.
