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.
The industrial sector has a lesser importance here than in other Italian regions: the heavy industries are mainly concentrated in the area of Terni and Narni (steel). Services (commerce, banks and assurances, restaurants, tourism) are the main source of regional wealth; one still important share, though progressively decreasing, is held by agriculture.
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), bars, pharmacy, bank and church. Better equipped shops one can find in Tavernelle di Panicale (9 km) on the way to Perugia. In Piegaro and around one can find some local restaurants; a broader offer with also some fine restaurants is found in Città della Pieve.
The Lake Trasimeno is 25 km away. Nearest village is Piegaro (2 km) and other important towns are Città della Pieve (13 km), Paciano (18 km) and Panicale (13 km).
Beach and water sport facilities at the nearby Lake Trasimeno (25 km). Golf courses are near Panicarola (16 km) at Golf Course Lamborghini (9 holes) and in Ellera Umbra (28 km) at Golf Club Perugia (18 holes).
All kind of activities, like cooking at home, can be arranged at request (separate prices).

"Quality and Service"

"Very comfortable villa with great pool area"
Casa Vigna was even better in real-life, than in the pictures. Inside, the villa was spacious and very well equipped. The coffee machine and the nice bathrooms were appreciated by the adults, and the children were happy about the internet access and TV. Outside, the pool was perfect for kids learning to swim - with a deep end and a shallow end. Also we enjoyed all the comfortable outdoor furniture, the villa was perfect for lazy days in the shaddow. The nearest village, Piegaro, is very small, so we ended up using the supermarket 10-15 km away. But if you don't mind driving, many towns are quite easy to reach. Our two weeks in Casa Vigna was a great and relaxing holiday, both for kids and adults.

"Umbria - what a special place"
This was our second time in Italy and if this is the improvement on the last wonderful holiday, I can't wait for the next. Piegaro is not only wonderful and tranquil in itself but also perfectly situated for exploring the Umbrian and Tuscan regions. Every day was an adventure, close to Perugia,Siena,Assisi and many other wonderful medieval towns.
The villa itself was extra special, everything we could've hoped for. From the outside with the views and pool to the inside decor and utilities.
Rob and Jeroen are great hosts and really know how to make everything perfect.

"Good quality, comfortable villa in lovely location"
Very nice villa. Very comfortable with modern amenities in good location. Bedrooms/ beds were particulary good. Unfortunately the weather was unseasonably poor which mean that the domestic water supply was cool- not the best for our morning shower. Probably not an issue when the sun shines. Still, we had a lovely time and would recommend anyone to go there.
