La Buia Villa Rotating Header Image


Luxury Self-catering Holiday Villa – Umbria, Italy

La Buia is a beautiful restored hillside tobacco tower situated in virtually unspoiled Umbrian countryside off the Tiber valley between Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Lippiano and Monterchi.

Located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria and just a 40 minute drive from Perugia airport, we get the best of both regions right on our doorstep.

Il Seccatoio – The Old Tobacco Barn – Approach

A luxury self-catering holiday villa with accommodation for 6-8 people, a large private pool and stunning views up and down the valley we are hidden in nature’s back pocket, off the beaten track, yet with easy access to all that Tuscany and Umbria have to offer. The area is perfect for walking and cycling or for the more adventurous horse-riding and golf are also available nearby.

It is a delight to offer would-be holiday-makers the use of “Il Seccatoio”  — as the new restoration is named — for their summer breaks in Umbria, Italy.

Private Swimming Pool - Luxury Self-catering Holiday Villa

The swimming pool is surrounded by flowers and vines & amazing views

The moment you arrive you can start the relaxation process; a dip in the pool with a glass of chilled prosecco before a sumptuous dinner overlooking the valley with the distant lights of Monte Santa Maria twinkling in the sky above and the sounds of un-spoilt Umbria around you.

The very faint (and oddly reassuring) sound of the odd car wending it’s way to Marzano at the top of valley is the most you’ll hear of the outside world.

The beauty of La Buia is that you can look both up and down to appreciate the true serenity of it’s beautiful surroundings.

The old tobacco tower is fully equipped with all mod cons, including WiFi, television, toys and games and a beautiful spacious kitchen with amazing views – more details.


Stunning valley views from the kitchen terrace

Chilled Prosecco is on the house when you arrive as you allow the beautiful peace and tranquility of this unique place to flow over you.

An idyllic spot to eat and relax with friends and family surrounded by nature.

You can walk in the shady wooded part of the gardens, where the valley bird-life meet, and end up at the lavender and rosemary fringed pool for a dip. Play a game of bocce with an aperitif before dinner. I can cook meals for you if you like the idea of not having to think ahead about food preparation.
