The Umbria region

The Upper Tiber Valley or "Valtiberina" is a wonderful part of Italy still very unspoilt and very Italian. Umbria has an array of wonderful places to visit with towns such as Perugia and Citta di Castello, and more wonderful hilltop villages and towns then you can possibly visit. Being right on the Tuscan, Umbrian border it is ideally situated for visiting both of these areas.

The Upper Tiber Valley is historically quite a wealthy area through tobacco farming and crafts such as carpentry for example and hence the towns are very well preserved and looked after. From May to November there are an array of festivals happening in the region, which is still very traditional and proud of its roots. During the spring and summer there are flower festivals and music festivals throughout the region and in October and November the autumn festivals with local produce such as wild boar, porcini mushrooms and truffles.

Citta Di Castello

The small town of Trestina is situated between Citta di Castello and Umbertide, both approx. 15 minutes away. Trestina is an agricultural area with predominantly tobbacco farming. The area is very beautiful with wonderful countryside and very close to many wonderful places to visit. Citta di Castello is a very pretty medieval city with some lovely sites, a great piazza, lots of festivals during the summer months and a very good market twice a week. Citta di Castello also houses the Burri collection (a modern art collection by the artist Burri who lived there.

The area called the Upper Tiber Valley is very beautiful and still very unspoilt. Being right on the Umbrian / Tuscan border you are able to easily visit both of these areas. With Arezzo close by, Perugia to the south, Lake Trasimeno 30 minutes away, Montone (said to be one of the most beautiful hilltop villages in Italy close by), Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino 30 minutes away. This is a truly wonderful part of Italy. During the summer months there are more festivals, prdominantly music than you can wish for, with the most famous once being "Umbria Jazz" in Perugia, "Trasimeno Blues" by the lake of Trasimeno, and the Festival delle Nazione in Citta di Castello .

"Lovely house in beautiful surroundings"

We booked this rural villa more or less by chance, and got real lucky! We aimed for a calm and quiet family stay in a pretty and "untouched" Italian small town, and that is exactly what we g… More

One great joy of this lovely large house is the vista. Early in the morning and late at night we enjoyed uninterrupted views of the Umbrian countryside and sunny/starry sky. Another "must" i… More

"Fantastic views, huge swimming pool and a very relaxing stay"

We stayed at Villa Bargi for a week in June. Lovely weather and perfect surroundings to enjoy the Umbrian countryside. The Villa is huge and has the biggest swimming pool we have ever seen for a Villa. Seriously we have stayed at hotels with smaller pools! We had a great bedroom with views down the valley, tiled floor and a wooden beamed ceiling. The bathroom wasn't ensuite but literally next door, very new and clean with a fantastic shower (also with views down the valley!). The villa has excellent space inside and out with several different eating areas and "chill zones". Our favourite spot was the covered terrace - it is simply perfect for evening drinks and to watch the sun go down. We didn't use the ping pong table, but younger people probably would. You definitely need a car. About 20 minutes to Citta di Castello (depending on the time of day), well located for the motorway network and sightseeing in Umbria and Tuscany.
