Ferentillo is a wonderful medieval town with two castles built during the 14th century, named Precetto and Matterella, and part of the ancient defensive walls. Inside them there is the church of S. Stefano, built during the 14th century and whose crypt contains some mummified remains, the Mummies of Ferentillo. 4 kilometers from Ferentillo you can visit the S. Pietro in Valle Abbey, built during the 8th century and very important from an artistic, architectonical and historical point of view.

Not far from it, inside an abandoned village that is considered the oldest in Umbria, there is the Castle of Umbriano, built as a bulwark for the abbey. Ferentillo is only a few kilometres away from the Marmore Waterfalls, the Sibillini Mountains, and the towns of Spoleto, Norcia, Cascia, Spello and Todi.

That's the reason why it's the ideal place from where you can visit all the most wonderful places in Umbria. In the immediate surroundings, you can try a lot of different sports, from free climbing to trekking, from walking to rafting, horse riding, mountain biking and many more.

The Umbria region

Umbria (Italian pronunciation: [ˈumbrja]) is a region of modern central Italy. It is one of the smallest Italian regions and the only peninsular region that is landlocked. It's called friendly "the Green Heart of Italy". Its capital is Perugia. Assisi and Norcia are historical towns associated with St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Benedict.

Umbria is bordered by Tuscany to the west, the Marche to the east and Lazio to the south. Mostly hilly or mountainous, its topography is dominated by the Apennines, with the highest point in the region at Monte Vettore on the border of the Marche, at 2,476 m (8,123 ft), and the Tiber valley basin, with the lowest point at Attigliano, 96 m (315 ft). It is the only Italian region having neither coastline nor common border with other countries.

The Tiber river forms the approximate border with Lazio, although its source is just over the Tuscan border. The Tiber's three principal tributaries flow southward through Umbria. The Chiascio basin is relatively uninhabited as far as Bastia Umbra. About 10 km (6 mi) further it joins the Tiber at Torgiano.

The Topino, cleaving the Apennines with passes that the Via Flaminia and successor roads follow, makes a sharp turn at Foligno to flow NW for a few kilometres before joining the Chiascio below Bettona. The third river is the Nera, flowing into the Tiber further south, at Terni; its valley is called the Valnerina. The upper Nera cuts ravines in the mountains; the lower in the Chiascio-Topino basin is in a fairly large floodplain.

In antiquity, the plain was covered by a pair of shallow, interlocking lakes, the Lacus Clitorius and the Lacus Umber. They were drained by the Romans over several hundred years, but an earthquake in the 4th century and the political collapse of the Roman Empire resulted in the re-flooding of the basin. It was drained a second time, almost a thousand years later, during a five-hundred-year period: Benedictine monks started the process in the 13th century, and the draining was completed by an engineer from Foligno in the 18th century.

In literature, one sometimes sees Umbria called il cuor verde d'Italia (the green heart of Italy).

The phrase is taken from a poem by Giosuè Carducci — the subject of which is not Umbria but rather a specific place in it, the source of the Clitunno river.

The Marmore Waterfalls

The Marmore Waterfalls, known through the centuries for their beauty, look like a thunderous column of water on three different drops. They shroud their surroundings in a white foam cloud and cover a difference in height of 165 meters, the highest in Europe. They have been declared property of humanity and are only a few minutes away from our structure. www.marmorefalls.it

Scheggino and the Activo Park

15 minutes north of Ferentillo there is the wonderful village of Scheggino, on the Nera river. It is possible to enjoy an afternoon of sport fishing thanks to the trout breeding, or an adventure (with children or adults only) in the Activo Park, the biggest outdoor park in Italy.

Piediluco Lake
