In the heart of central Italy, Villa Soleil straddles the regions of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio and is within 20 minutes of majestic Orvieto - one of Italy's loveliest hill towns found mid-way between Rome and Florence.
Fully air conditioned and brimming with high quality furnishings and amenities, the villa comes replete with gleaming marble floors, a professional kitchen, a billiard table, a sprawling main living room with wet bar, a grand entrance foyer and an elevator. Villa Soleil reveals its sunny demeanor by an abundance of large screened windows and glass doors opening to balconies and terraces. Each of the villa's seven bedrooms has its own en suite bath.
Villa Soleil was built as a second home meant for the purpose of entertaining and hosting family gatherings both inside and outdoors. The furnished swimming pool area has showers, changing rooms, a restroom and a gazebo for shade. The lower level garden area houses a fully covered dining patio with stone countertops, a large gas grill and a lounge area with views over the countryside. For more contemplative moments, furnished nooks throughout the park are ideally suited for reading or quiet reflection.
Guests are welcome to try their hand (and skill) on the bocce court, at the ping-pong table or riding to one of the local hamlets on one of the villa's mountain bicycles. Orchards bearing cherry, orange, lemon, apple, peach, pear, plum and other fruit trees ripen for picking between May and September. Ask the gardner as he goes about his early morning pruning or help yourself. Upon arrival, guests are offered a sampling of the Cabernet and Merlot wines made from the estate's grapes, and a supply is available for purchase.
A stay at Villa Soleil begins on a relaxing note. A complimentary breakfast buffet is set up on Sunday morning. Among the conveniences included in the rental price are: daily refresh cleaning of the bedrooms and baths, towels changed on Tuesday and Thursday, WiFi and an abundant energy allowance for summer cooling and fall heating. For carefree entertaining, additional services may be arranging, such as home cooked meals, private cooking classes and additional cleaning.
Beyond the villa's impressively gated entrance, several compelling destinations await. For daily necessities, the morning's first cappuccino or a hearty trattoria dinner the nearest small villages are Lubriano, within a five minute drive or Castiglione in Teverina within ten. A visit to the ancient village of Civita di Bagnoregio is stepping back in time; drive 15 minutes to this Etruscan treasure hovering atop volcanic rock and only reached by footpath.
Orvieto tops the list of favorite hill towns with a medieval center, reached in just over 20 minutes, offering a variety of shops and restaurants. The Orvieto Scalo train station has 90 minute service into Rome. Surrounding Orvieto are a number of cantine that accept reservations for wine tours and tastings. Lake Bolsena - Europe's largest volcanic lake with beaches, canoe rental and tour boats is a mere 20 minute drive. Among the other day trips possible from Villa Soleil: Todi, ceramic workshops in Deruta, thermal spas in San Casciano dei Bagni, Perugia, Cortona, Montepulciano, Lake Trasimeno, Siena, Rome, Tivoli, Spoleto, Assisi and Florence.

"We had a wonderful week at Villa Soleil! The villa and property is absolutely beautiful, even better than the website pictures show. It is very spacious and comfortable, with tasteful furnishings, artwork, and everything you need. The lovely Umbrian countryside is all around. It is an easy drive to Orvieto, the closest and largest city, but not too big. An unexpected and pleasant surprise to us as we had not heard much about it before. Other Umbrian and Tuscan towns are easily accessible as well. At the Villa, we tried our hand at making homemade pasta which we enjoyed as part of a delicious dinner one night. We took part in a special wine tour, tasting, and sumptuous luncheon at a local winery. And we celebrated a wonderful week at the villa with a farewell dinner prepared for us on our last night. Everyone in our group of 12 friends agreed it was a fabulous vacation! And it would not have been possible without the help and direction of the wonderful staff at Parker Villas, especially Julie! She was so helpful and accommodating, answering all our questions and calming any of our concerns. I would highly recommend Parker Villas for your beautiful Italy vacation and Villa Soleil if it's Umbria that you choose to visit!" - C. Morse
