The Umbria region
Umbria is situated right in the centre of the Italian peninsula, bordering with Le Marche to the East and with Tuscany and Lazio respectively to the North-West and South-West.
From an administrative point of view, the region is divided into two provinces, Perugia, the region main hub, and Terni. Other towns of decent size are Foligno, Città di Castello, Spoleto and Gubbio. The urbanization rate is much lower here than in other Italian regions, indicating a greater capillarity of the human presence on the territory: Only three municipalities have more than 50.000 inhabitants and these account for approximately 40% of the population of Umbria; this is an additional symptom of the strong connection to the territory and to their own traditions that the inhabitants of the many small rural villages continue to maintain. The Umbrian population reaches approximately 840.000 units.
A big part of the regional surface (55%) is hilly; the mountainous areas correspond to 27% of the total surface and the flat to 18%. At the eastern corner of Umbria, within the Natural Park of Monti Sibillini, rises Mount Vettore (2448 meters), the most elevated peak.
The region is rich in waters: it is crossed from north to south from the Tevere, the third Italian river in length and from many other rivers like the Nera, who forms the spectacular Marmore Falls. The main lakes are the Trasimeno, the fourth largest in Italy, the lake of Corbara and Piediluco lake.
The climate has a Mediterranean character, with marked diversities between the mountainous areas on one side and the hilly and flattish areas on the other; summer is typically warm and dry, winter relatively mild, with temperatures not frequently coming down below zero. Rainfalls are more abundant in the north-oriental Apennine, where snow falls quite regularly in the colder months.
Piegaro is a sleepy medieval town with some shops (butcher, bakery, small grocery). Better equipped shops one can find in Tavernelle di Panicale on the way to Perugia 10 minutes drive. In Piegaro and around there are some local restaurants. In Citta della Pieve there are some fine restaurants.

"The perfect place to stay in Umbria!"
The property looked good at the prospect but we were floored when we got there! The garden and the view looked so much better in reality than on the pictures we had seen. The grass was green and not … More

"dolce vita in optima forma"
Dolce Vita in Optima forma
Wij zijn verwend als het om onze vakantiebestemming gaat. Monica is van origine Italiaans en dat legt de lat nog hoger. Villa Orizzonte maakte de verwachtingen meer dan waar. De locatie, het uitzicht en de prachtige authentieke steden in de buurt hebben deze vakantie onvergetelijk gemaakt.
De villa ligt op een prachtige punt op het snijvlak van Umbrie en Toscane. Het fantastisch uitzicht vanaf het magnifieke terras of vanaf het Olympisch zwembad maken het plaatje kompleet.
De villa en haar interieur is van een 7 sterren niveau. Alles blijkt te kloppen en is perfect in balans, Een prachtige grote keuken met alle apparatuur. Een woonkamer met een grote openhaard. De slaapkamers en de badkamers zijn tot in de detail afgewerkt. Je zou wensen dat je het thuis ook zo hebt.
Wij hebben met ons gezin en een stel vrienden genoten van een zeer gezellige week in een perfecte omgeving. Een aanrader voor mensen die houden van kwaliteit gecombineerd met de gastvrijheid van Italië.

"All you could wish for"
Staying at Casale Orizzonte is like a dream. If you want a fairy tale come true, if you want a "just like in the movies' feeling, you just can't stay away from Casale Orizzonte.
The house is beautifully situated on top of a hill overlooking Peigaro and the surrounding landscape, the garden is extremely well kept and the pool is just great, especially with a outside temperature of 35 degrees.
The house itself is decorated with great taste, has everything you can imagine, is spacious, very clean and has an authentic feel.
In short, if you want to treat yourself on a vacation you will never forget, you can't go wrong with Casale Orizzonte.

"Luxury and tranquility in a stunning location"
The property was even more stunning than the photos we received at the time of booking indicated. The property was beautifully furnished and spacious for our group of 6. Its location was magnificent - we had many happy evenings drinking wine, from the wine cellar,.. watching the sun set. Everything we needed for our stay was included; the kitchen particularly was very well equipped. Upon arrival both inside and outside areas were spotlessly clean.
A perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Did not do as much sightseeing as we had thought as major tourist sights we were away than we had envisaged.
