Casale Fonte Saint’Angelo

Vintage Travel has launched its ‘Taste of 2015’ brochure showcasing a selection of just some of its 500 villas in stunning locations such as Spain and its islands, Portugal, Greece, France, Italy, Turkey and Croatia.

Making its debut in 2015 is Casale Fonte Saint’Angelo, a meticulous restoration of a 19th century farmhouse on the Umbrian/Tuscan border which offers a remarkable level of comfort for large groups of friends.

Inside the air-conditioned property, which sleeps 14 people, there is a spacious sitting room, dining room and kitchen – each retaining exposed brick, beams and cotto floors – plus seven opulent bedrooms, each en suite.  

Outside there are open and covered dining terraces, a poolside lounge, lawned gardens, a vineyard and a private swimming pool.  From Terontola (two kms) there are direct trains to Florence and Rome, while there’s swimming and sunbathing at Lake Trasimeno (five kms).  A seven-night holiday in 2015 ranges in price from £4,995 to £6,995.

Smaller properties being featured for the first time in 2015 include Eleana, a pretty cottage – surrounded by forests and olive groves – at Gaios on the Greek island of Paxos.

The air-conditioned property, which sleeps three people, has the classic Ionian exterior of green shutters and a red roof and inside has an open-plan living/dining room with wooden rafters, a kitchen, bathroom and two spacious bedrooms.

A large terrace at the front of the house commands panoramic views of countryside extending to the Ionian Sea and, in the tiered gardens, there is a larger than average private swimming pool, plus a small children’s pool.  A couple of tavernas are just a short stroll away and Gaios, with its quayside restaurants and beaches, is around a 10-minute drive.  A seven-night holiday in 2015 ranges in price from £850 to £2550.

Return UK flights and car hire are extra, but these can be arranged by the company on request.
