Villa Calypso is a beautiful and evocative luxury property for rent in the lush Umbria countryside, not far away from Perugia. Able to accommodate up to eight guests in its splendid interiors, this traditional-looking two-story Italian house provides a unique location close to picturesque little villages, the green hills of the area and the stunning Trasimeno Lake.
Perfect as a privacy-oriented accommodation for people looking for a peaceful and secluded vacation immersed in nature, Villa Calypso recently underwent a thorough restoration that kept its DNA intact. The heart of the property is, in fact, still fully visible in details such as the washed walls’ pale shades, the “pietra serena” stone and precious Italian wood of the ceilings, and the marble surfaces decorating the bathrooms.
Villa Calypso provides four finely-decorated double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a beautiful living room and a fully equipped kitchen. The annexed cottage is just as stunning, with its second living area and direct view over the infinity-edge private pool, which can be accessed through a staircase.
Stylistically speaking, the property is a full immersion in Umbria architectural traditions: the overall mood is elegant and refined, coherent with the villa’s historical context, and perfect for those who love a “rustic” feel in their house. The humble countryside origins of the building are still visible in elements such as the wooden beamed ceilings and the small windows, but also in the clever use of local wood essences and stone. However, a luxurious and contemporary influence is also apparent, making Villa Calypso a neoclassic retreat among the Umbria hills.
The villa is developed on different levels of steep land so there are many stairsinside and between the buildings. The property is particularly fit for physically active people.
If your dream is a total immersion in the Italian countryside and a genuine feel of the local lifestyle, this is the villa for you.

Villa Calypso is located in the Umbria region, not far away from Perugia. Situated in Central Italy, Umbria is often called the country’s “green heart” due to its stunningly green landscapes and rolling hills.
Perugia, the region’s capital, is ultimately the most famous Umbrian city because of its ancient history and mystical feel. This charming medieval borgo is a symphony of art, architecture and culture and home of several museums, galleries and historical landmarks such as Palazzo dei Priori, Rocca Paolina and the San Lorenzo Cathedral. Perugia is also renowned worldwide for its mouthwatering cuisine: the city boasts a plethora of trattorias, restaurants and cafes that serve traditional Umbrian dishes such as porchetta, truffles and strangozzi.
Apart from Perugia, the Umbria region has several other cities worth visiting. Assisi, for example, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its stunning basilica and the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi. Gubbio is another picturesque town that is known for its well-preserved medieval architecture and stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
And if you’re a nature lover, you’ll be delighted to discover several national parks and reserves, such as the Monti Sibillini National Park and the Lake Trasimeno Natural Park.
