The Umbria region

An extensive guide to local activities including the Terni Waterfalls is provided for our guests both beforehand and in the guest information book in the house.

Umbria is considered "the heart of Italy" and is a land of over one hundred medieval towns. The township of Giove is one of these. Situated above the A-1 Autostrada, which serves as the main artery between Rome and Florence, this restored landmark sits waiting to host its visitors in medieval atmosphere and modern luxury.

With a train station at the bottom of the hill in the city of Attligliano, all destinations are easily accessible. The fantastic cities of Orvieto, Spoleto, Perugia, as well as the ceramic capitol, Deruta and the treasures of Rome and Florence are all close enough for day adventures. If you prefer to explore closer to home, the famous Monster Park at Bomarzo and the hidden medieval hilltop metropolis of Amelia are a stone's throw away.

We love the nature, antiques, historic centres and culture that surround our second home. This region is less touristy than Tuscany and offers an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape as well as providing a convenient base to explore. Visits to the remote medieval hill towns scattered throughout the region will take you off the beaten track.

The region has a wide range of cultural events and festivals. The local cuisine is a must for food-lovers, with a diverse array of fine local ingredients and wines to try.


The town has all that you will need including bank, supermarkets, bars, bakers, coffee shops and friendly locals.

The village, located on the surface of a hill that slopes towards the river Tiber boasts quaint medieval cobbled streets, beautiful architecture including that of the castle. An extensive guide to local activities including the Terni Waterfalls is provided for our guests both beforehand and in the guest information book in the house. Enjoy prosecco and pizza by the castle overlooking the incredible landscape below.

"the perfect romantic rest"

I stayed here in may 2012 with my husband to be (after proposal in Firenze!). Arrived at this magic medieval village just after visiting several cities in all Europe. We arrived at our final destination, Giove with a bit of surprise as we didnt know what to find. We fell in love immediately with this typical Toscana/Umbria village. And the Darienzo house is just perfect, perfect bed, the living room is so comfortable to stay and watch movies, read a book. Our favorite place was having lunch in the terrace, enjoying wine and pasta, watching the italian landscape so typical in the most complete quiet silence. We also had walks around the village geting lost in their narrow streets. iWe´ll come soon with our little girl

Thank you for your review. We are so delighted that the casa was everything you hoped for and part of such a magical trip. Wishing you and your family all the very best, d'Arienzos

"Beautiful holiday home"

The service we received from the owners, Tamsyn and Ronnie, was superb. They were extremely helpful from our very first enquiry, to booking and throughout our visit. They answered all of our questions - no matter how petty-sounding. They also provided wonderful help whilst there through their Italian contact, Alessia, who was a mine of information and even came to the house late at night (interrupting her dinner with friends!) to help us when we fused the house lights.
The house itself is extremely well furnished and is immaculately clean and spacious. We are a family of 7 but had plenty of room to escape from one another. The kitchen is large and modern and had everything needed for a self catering holiday. There was plenty of room for dining - both in the kitchen and on the lovely patio outside. The garden is very basic but was what we expected with a newly built property. The house is in a fairly remote area (a car is pretty much essential) but is in a nice residential location, though the neighbours aren't too close for comfort! It felt like a very safe, family-friendly location. We spent 2 weeks here and had a great time.
It is quite well located for lots of sightseeing but be warned that you will do a lot of driving - quite an experience in Italy but we soon got used to it and were driving like true Italians ourselves in no time. We took the train to Rome. It was great value (77 Euros including travel passes for all of us) and took less than an hour to get there. There were also local trains to Florence and Sienna though we didn't manage to fit those in - next time maybe! We also drove to Rome once but returned to find the car had been broken into - a 4 hour hassle with the police and car rental company followed so I'd definitely recommend sticking to the train! If you are an EU visitor to Rome make sure you take some ID (a driving licence) to get discounted tickets to the main attractions.
About 10 mins drive away is a lovely clean outdoor pool (in Lagnano inTaverina) which we visited a lot. There were also free thermal pools about 30 minutes away north of Viterbo - basic but an experience I'm glad we had! They'd be even better in cooler weather as the water was very warm (albeit a bit sulphuric-smelling!). The locals in the village of Giove were very friendly (the place comes alive after 9pm) and the gelato (anywhere!) was fabulous! There are lots of great sights to visit and I'd definitely recommend the area. It is however extremely hot in July and August!
A few very minor suggestions for improvement:
The addition of a guestbook where people could make recommendations (or warnings!) about places they visited etc would be useful, as would a file with leaflets and details about local attractions.
A few family board games (and a table tennis table!) would have been great - to keep us entertained in the evening.
We've stayed in lots of holiday homes and this is the nicest by far - a beautiful house and great value for money.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a brilliant review· We will definitely look at getting table tennis or table football, some board games and the guest book with leaflets too.
All the best
Tamsyn and Ronnie
