The story of Villa Metella began in 1997 when the owners decided to purchase this old house, fascinated by its character and charm.
In that period the property was a building of humble beginnings, yet enhanced by a rare peculiarity in this area: the faÃ§ade characterised by wooden frames dating back to the French Era.
This land was the scene of several battles of the Second Punic War between Romans and Carthaginians and witnessed the passage of Hannibal troops during the famous Trasimeno Battle.
Those well-known periods left us a bunch of important archaeological traces that nature engulfed but left untouched. Thematic and trekking routes have been created to retrace the paths of the Trasimeno Battle through the 14 km of the Hannibal Course or the ancient paved path dating back to the Roman Age that leads to Monte Egidio.
The villa has been wisely and expertly renovated, thanks to an egregious work that melted old and modern style, combining the magnificent historic originals with minimal, essential and simple elements: few precious or old items placed together with design elements.
There are 5 beautiful bedrooms at guests' disposal, each with its unique atmosphere.
Wisteria, furnished with meticulous attention to the smallest details and maintaining all the original elements that characterise the villa, is located on the second floor that can be reach through the elevator.
The characteristic headboard is inspired by the layout of the old fireplace on the upper floor of the farmhouse. The room has a surface of 20 square meters, enjoys enchanting natural light and features high ceilings with bleached beams. The bathroom with shower is equipped with hairdryer.
