About this location
The Umbria region
Few regions can give such intense emotions as Umbria. Exploring this land of different characters and spirits
is like entering a dimension in which suggestive spirituality, artistic heritage and the quality of the natural
environmental melt into harmonious perfection. Surrounding oneself by the peace of the countryside, letting oneself be drawn into the soft colours of a landscape that seems to belong to a Renaissance painting is like sharing the secret rhythm of a world in which humans and the quality of human life make one common value.
An ancient land that still releases vital energies that awaken its visitors, arousing their curiosity, opening their minds and their hearts. An experience in discovering the art of living, both through places of spirituality, and the authentic expression of a culture with a wealth of knowledge and flavours.
Walking, cycling or riding are the best ways to become truly familiar with the areas to be visited. But the most important thing is to be in the right spirit, to “keep your eyes open”, to be ready to meet people, to meet yourselves and the land you are travelling through.
Laying on the slopes of Monte Ingino, Gubbio is one of the most ancient towns of Umbria, extremely well preserved during centuries and rich of monuments testifying its glorious past.
Two important witnesses of the past are the Tavole Eugubine, one of most important documents referring to the ancient people called Italici and the Roman Theatre just outside the walls of the town. Dominated from the top by the Basilica on which the rests of St. Ubaldo are buried, Gubbio keeps architectonic masterpieces testifying the beauty and the imprtance of what used to be during the Middle ages, a real town-state.
At the beginning of the XIV century the Consuls Palace, today symbol of the town, was constructed together with the square Piazza Pensile and Pretorio Palace. To remind the palaces Beni, del Bargello with the famous fountain, of People Captain , in typical renaissance style, Dukes Palace by Francesco Giorgio Martini which testity the importance of the period on which the Montefeltro's family had the administration of the town.
Very interesting are also the Cathedral (XII century), St. Maria Nuova (inside which one can admire the Madonna del Belvedere painted by Ottaviano Nelli on 1413), Church and Convent of St. Agostino (XIII century ) with inside frescoes of Nelli, Church and Convent of St. Francesco (XIII century), St. Giovanni (XII century) characterised by the facade and bell tower in romanic style, St. Peter enlarged in 1505 and St. Domenico enlarged in the XIV century.

"Perfect for 2"
I usually stay in the other bigger apartment Limonara (which I love), but being only 2, I thought we should try the all new smaller, but very cosy Studiolo.
We did not regret - it is so nice and cosy and even though it's small, it has everything you need and without feeling cramped. Both the bathroom and kitchen (all new and nice) have plenty of space - the shared bedroom/livingroom is small, but as mentioned before, you don't feel cramped - not even staying with a friend!
This is a great Little place to stay - very nice and quiet and you can sit outside in the garden without being disturbed by anyone - just perfect!
