Villa Roncone lies in the heart of an extended family estate whose main activity is the production of olive oil.
A classic Umbrian farmhouse, Roncone has been lovingly and painstakingly restored by its charming architect owner and is a wonderful example of how modern styles can be effectively combined with traditional techniques and materials.
Antique terracotta tiles, ‘pietra serena’ stone slabs, walnut timber and river stones have been mixed with African woods, steel, iron and glass – the end result being a stunningly luxurious and beautifully unique home. Interiors are something else combining antique family furniture and comfortable sofas with modern designer lighting and steel staircases.
The entire effect is highly impressive but also uplifting and memorable and one is struck by how Villa Roncone feels a ‘real home’ - somewhere to totally unwind and soak in the magic of the views as the sun sets across Lake Trasimeno with its unique light quality.
