Villa and Holiday Accommodation
The ‘Green Heart of Italy’ has many of the attributes of its illustrious neighbour to the west without the influx of mass-tourism and everything that comes with that. It’s a land-
locked region of picturesque medieval hill-top towns and villages, peaceful and unspoilt countryside, lakes, cultural and culinary experiences.
Umbria is a rural region of gently undulating open countryside, vineyards, olive groves and cypress-topped hills. It’s regarded as an area that truly has kept alive many of the old
Italian ways, uninfluenced by other cultures; the perfect place to experience rural, untouched Italy.
That said, there are lots of places of interest which will vie for your attention; Perugia, Umbria’s capital, with its Gothic palaces and ancient monuments; Assisi – the world
famous UNESCO site synonymous with St Francis, Orvieto perched precariously on a volcanic outcrop, Spoleto with its cultural events and most romantic setting, Norcia,
surrounded by mountains and famous for its gastronomy, Todi, with an impressive hill-top position and beautiful market square and Gubbio, with its wonderful medieval
streets and mountainous backdrop.
In addition you’ll find a host of smaller villages such as Montefalco, a walled town with fantastic views, Spello, with its stacked terraces of medieval houses and Trevi, a most
picturesque hill-top village with more superb views; one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Bettona, with its well preserved mediaeval walls will also give you great views
with its high vantage point on the edge of the Colli Martani Mountains.
The Tiber River runs through the region which includes a number of tranquil lakes, including Lake Trasimeno, the largest in central Italy and beauty spots such as the Cascate
delle Marmore waterfalls which can be found near Terni. Activities like canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and boats are popular on most of the lakes and at various points along the
