The Umbria region
Umbria is a region of Central Italy, bordered by Tuscany to the west, Le Marche to the east, Lazio to the south and Emilia Romagna to the North. This region is mostly hilly or mountainous, and described as the 'Green heart of Italy' as so much of its landscape benefits from the Tiber River and valley.
With rolling green expanses of olive grove and vineyard, woods of beech, oak and pine and craggy mountains, it earns its name, but has some lovely towns, and is famous for its hill towns.
Spring is a beautiful time of the year when all the wild flowers, broom and acacia trees are in blossom. The days are usually warm, whilst a wood-burning stove is a welcome sight in the evenings.
Summer is long days with a clear blue sky and temperatures of 30+ degrees, but cooling down in the evenings making outdoor dining a pleasure.
Autumn has long sunny days and cool evenings.
Winter usually has crisp cold nights and many fine clear days with occasional snow falls.
Completely landlocked, Umbria’s beaches are on the expansive Lake (Lago) Trasimeno in the north of the region. Towns and villages in Umbria include Perugia (30 mins from the house), Terni, Spoleto, Assisi, Gubbio, Orvieto, Spello, Todi, Narni and Foligno. These and Lake Trasimeno (boat trips, wind surfing, child-friendly beach), are nearly all within a 1hr drive from the house.
Cortona (the location for the film; Under the Tuscan Sun)(50km), Arezzo (the location for the town shots in the oscar-winning film La Vita e Bella) (36km) are all less than an 1 hour drive away. A variety of small hilltop towns which include; Torgiano (70km) - Wine museum of the Lungarotti Cantina, Montefalco (97km) – Famous for its textiles and wine (sagrantino), Bevagna (90km) – (restaurant Osteria del Podesta) and Trevi (95km) are all worth a visit.
Florence and Siena (100km) in Tuscany are about 1hr.30 minutes away. Rome is about 2.5 hours drive.
Citta Di Castello
Citta Di Castello is a beautiful hill top town with lovely shops and restaurants.
5 minutes drive from the house is Fattoria Caldese which has a 9 hole Golf Course, an Equestrian Centre, a Health Spa with an indoor swimming pool and a restaurant.
For art lovers - follow the 'Piero della Francesca' trail in Arezzo, Monterchi and Sansepolcro, or visit the superb galleries in Citta di Castello or Perugia. Why not bring your own paints, for you'll be entranced by the soft, ever-changing light.
For music lovers - there is the Umbria Jazz festival in Perugia in July or for 3 weeks in August, the Festival of Nations series of concerts in and around Citta di Castello.
For lovers of churches - there is an ever lasting supply! Assisi is a must, but also visit Bevagna.
For nature lovers - enjoy the countryside, the wild flowers and the bird life.
