The crown jewel of the collection of villas at Cm Centumbrie. the villa is perched on a small hill once called Battisto because of the full sun it receives and its views of lake trasimeno. from here, there is a one-of-a-kind, 360° panorama of the lake and its three islands, the enchanting village of monte del Lago and all of the uncontaminated countryside around it. the stone farmhouse has been elegantly restored and its many doors and windows frame bucolic views as if they were renaissance paintings. interior finishing materials take their inspiration from the local territory and, with its custom-made furniture and original art hanging on the walls, the villa represents the best of Italian craftsmanship and design. with no comfort lacking, this villa will make your stay in Umbria an unforgettable experience.

Wonderful week in Umbria. The food and wine were fabulous! Our daily tours were fun, and we learned a lot. It would be impossible to say what I liked the most, because everything was great! Our hosts went out of their way to make sure that all our needs were met. It was perfect!

Thank you so much for our amazing trip to Umbria! Your team truly catered to our personal preferences on every level; with both of us being foodies, it made a difference! Our favorites were the fantastic dinners by Chef Jennifer and her AIV touches? Her culinary creations were arts themselves! The truffle hunt with Bruno was a wonderful experience as well as the visits to the various local towns! Looking through the pictures they were each different and very charming! Memories for a lifetime for sure!

Art in voyage exceeded every expectation I had. Each day I thought well they can’t do better than this and the next day they did. you didn’t even know they were paying attention to our conversations but then they would adjust the schedule and you realized it was because they were paying attention to what we wanted. You can’t ask for better than that
