Overview

Charming and very private, L'Olmo is a completely renovated farmhouse that nestles against the hillside below San Gemini, a lively and beautifully preserved medieval hill town. The house gazes through a deep valley towards an open countryside of fields and forests, with no neighbours in sight save Il Cerro. Traditional elements such as terracotta floors and beamed ceilings create a warm and comfortable interior, while large windows flood the spacious rooms with light. On the ground floor an airy living/dining room features a sunken area with a fireplace and a comfortable couch, the first floor air-conditioned double bedroom and the fully fitted open kitchen is equipped with every convenience. A pretty garden with three furnished loggias is planted with jasmine, rosemary, wisteria and climbing roses, and leads down to a swimming pool positioned at the edge of the lawn.

Clients reviews

As we travelled from the US, our expectations and investment in a wonderful vacation were probably a little higher than most... and were certainly surpassed! Our villa was just perfect and the trip was unforgettable. I have already recommended Tuscany Now to my father who, for years has been trying to plan a huge family trip..... now he has one solid resource to make it happen!

Our family has a wonderful stay at L'Olmo. Our first Tuscany Now property. It was all we hoped for and more. We enjoyed swimming every day, doing water colours with the girls on the terrace, and taking day trips to Narni, Orvieto, Assisi and of course San Gemini. We loved the trattoria Il Tocchio- great food perfect setting and warm staff. We missed the waterfalls by 30 min at Cascata Marmore, but did'nt know how to check before hand so it was a wasted trip. Even doing the laundry and the dishes were a pleasure in this great setting. Thank you Elena and Pierro for welcoming us! We hope to come back.

What a wonderful week we had, it was lovely to see Elena and Piero again they are always so welcoming. The weather was a mixture of sun, clouds and thunder storms, but never mattered to us. We visited Todi, Orvieto, Spoleto and Carsulae. We had some lovely meals at San Gemini especially at the Osteria. We will be back again and look forward to it.

He have had a wonderful week at this fantastic house. Thanks to Elena and Pietro for the friendly welcome. Our favourite Tuscany Now house! We loved relaxing by the swimming pool and on the terrace. When we did go out, our favourite places were - -Cascate del Marmore (we arrived just as the siren was indicating the waters were to be switched on) followed by lunch at Piediluco overlooking the lake. -Norcia e Castelluccio, a long drive but the scenery is spectacular. -Spoleto -Roman ruins at Carsulae Daniela also prepared us a wonderful dinner (and there was plenty left over for lunch the next day). Highly recommended! We loved it at this house and the village of San Gemini and hope to return one day. Sheila, Jerry, Emily (8) and Olivia (6) Surrey, England

L'Olmo is absolutely perfect, the house and pool are beautiful and the setting is spectacular. We will miss so much our evenings sitting on the veranda with a glass of Chianti watching the sun go down. Perfect place to un-wind and relax. Elena and Piero gave us such a lovely friendly welcome with loads of local knowledge to help us make the most of our week. We will defiantly be back, thank you so much L'Olmo for making us so happy for a whole week.

It is now 23.30 on the 26th and I pop this note with somewhat heavy heart….we will be leaving in the morning. Apart from a few business trips to Italy our family holiday is my first true experience of beautiful Italy! Having travelled here via Venice and Florence, L'Olmo and San Gemini for me, are in a class of their own. Perfetto! springs to mind. I am sure we will return.

Our second visit to the lovely Olmo and we hope to return again and again. This is a magical place and the perfect haven for some real r & r. Elena is a marvel the best villa manager we have ever come across. The fridge broke during our stay-the very next day a brand new replacement arrived. Nothing is too much trouble for her and Piero and they can solve any problem, amazing. We love this perfect gem of a villa and will return to the little gem in San Gemini for years to come.

Our first trip to Italy something I have dreamt of for many year, having had a hectic few days zooming around Venice and Florence we arrived at L'Olmo looking for a week of relaxation. We could not have asked for a more perfect spot. Elena and Piero have been the most welcoming hosts, thank you both so much.

We had a lovely stay at L'Olmo and it's San Gemini lived up to all expectations. Thank you Tuscany Now! A big thank you to Elena and Piero for ,making us feel so very welcome and nothing too much trouble, we loved everything about our stay the people of san Gemini so very friendly, our 4 year old loved the playground the ice cream shop and saying Ciao to anyone who would listen. We visited Carsulae well worth it! Food was great at any of the places we ate at, a heartfelt thank you to the beautiful food Daniella cooked for us the night of our arrival even though she had a family commitment to attend that same night. Grazie! I and my family have wonderful memories to take away with us, Grazie Mille wish we could have stayed longer than a week. The Harper family 2012

Our first time in Italy in over 15 years and we can't wait to come back. L'Olmo has exceeded our expectations by far and we loved the peace and quiet and the beautiful pool. It was hard to tear ourselves away but we did manage to visit Todi, where we saw the Ballet in the piazza which was wonderful. Also recommend Bevagna and Deruta which were both lovely little places with much to see. What was so good was that everywhere we went was so quiet despite it being the height of the tourist season. We loved San Gemini too, it was lovely to be so near so a nice town. Still so much to do, so we will definitely be back next year. PS. Elena and Piero so helpful and welcoming and definitely recommend having a meal prepared by Daniela a wonderful cook who thinks she is feeding an army!

It was a lovely stay here, the weather was beautiful minus one or two storms but they were dramatic and exciting in their own way. The house is perfect and San Gemini a picturesque town. We also visited Narni and Todi both of which are beautiful, old towns with hidden shops and the best ice-cream known to man. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

We drove 1,150 miles across Europe to reach this wonderful place. The view calms the spirit and the silence embraces the soul. We now begin our long drive home but taking a little slice of Umbria with us in our memory box of life.

It's our third year visiting Umbria and L'Olmo is the most beautiful. We've had a fantastic week, enjoying every minute. The pool is perfect for children, with our four year old learning to swim! San Gemini is a perfect spot for a coffee and ice cream and to soak up Italian life. We also visited Todi again which we love. The restaurant Umbria is fantastic, with the most amazing views and Italian food. Really recommend it - but you must book. Thanks to Elena and Piero who made us feel so welcome.

We came to Umbria looking for peace, solitude and tranquility and found them in abundance at L'Olmo. We were welcomed by Elena and Piero and then left alone to enoy this special place. The pool is simply sublime. Would we come again?? Oh YES!!

The beauty and tranquility of the valley far exceeded our expectations.....the dawn chorus, the sound of the woodpeckes darting around, the swifts drinking from the pool, even the thunderstorms made this a magical place to spend our time at.

We found L'Olmo a place of peacefull relaxation where time stood still for us for a week and we were able to enoy the simple and important things in life.The big toad in the garden and an extrordinary fly on my macaroon. A big thank you to Elena for making us feel so welcomed.

L'Olmo was very spacious inside and out, tastefully decorated, and in an idyllic setting in lovely valley, large swimming pool. San Gemini nearby was a real plus - a lovely unspoilt and untouristy town. Caretaker and staff were very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the gifts of food when we arrived - especially home grown estate olive oil! Outstanding service two years in a row - really impossible to fault and we will definitely holiday with you again in the future and recommend you to our friends.

The true test of a company such as yours is how you respond to problems. I am pleased to say we were most appreciative of the prompt action in solving our predicament. Staff at Tuscany now were fantastic and deserve credit.
