The Umbria region
In Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy, tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature, antiquities, historic centres and culture. The quiet of the countryside, good provisions and an inimitable cuisine are the great draw. This region is less touristy than Tuscany and this is especially appreciated by many tourists. It forms an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape and on the other hand making trips to beautifull towns like Todi, Orvieto, Narni, Spoleto, Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi. You can also easily visit – in day trips - famous towns and charming villages in the southern part of Tuscany such as Siena, Arezzo, San Giminiano, Pienza, Cortona, Sinalunga, etc. Many tourists visit also Rome from here, without staying in the city which is very hot in summer. It is possible to go by car (journey of 1h-1h30) or by train from the stations of Terni, Narni-Amelia, Orte & Orvieto.
There are numerous charming little villages – many of medieval origin - as Amelia, Labro, Spello, Norcia, Bevagna, Montefalco to visit. In many towns and villages you can taste local dishes or buy local wines and olive oil (generally of excellent quality). We must not forget the mountains with some splendid woods, e.g. Terminillo (up to 2000 metres by car). In around 1 hour it is possible to reach the shimmering lakes of Bracciano, Vico, Piediluco, Bolsena and Trasimeno. The Mediterranean Sea (mostly sand beaches) situated between Tarquinia and Chiarone are 90-120 Kms away (around 1h20-1h40 driving). Near the city of Terni you can also visit the Marmore falls (165 meters, one of the highest of Europe), there is nearby also a rafting/canoeing/hydrospeed center.
The Orvieto Bolsena / Orvieto area
Orvieto is a place of great historical importance. So you see tourists the whole year round. Lots of them only visit the well known cathedral, the cathedral square and the central street full of ceramics and souvenir shops. They are wrong, because there is a lot more to see in this city and even more in the surrounding area. You have to go right through Orvieto to get a real impression of the unfamiliar setting of the city and the gleaming city walls on the volcanic tuff stone hill, plus characteristic monuments and museums with Etruscan finds. From Orvieto, which is near the Milan-Rome motorway, you can easily visit large parts of south Tuscany and then the shimmering lake of Bolsena.

03 Jul 2012
Our return to glorious Umbria was enhanced by this beautiful independient villa which was a splendidly comfortable and congenial base to both relax and tour. We are owners/renters abroad ourselves (Kotor, Montenegro) so we were pleased to see the high standards we aim for emulated here in every respect.
The house is tastefully furnished and very well equipped with every possible facility and convenience. The gardens were superb with a lovely patio and terrace and lots of shade for dining and relaxing, even a super-luxury hammock and love swing!! The pool was excellent and again well provided with loungers and shade.
Nothing was too much trouble for the delightful owners, Andrea and Cinzia, whose hospitality and kindness were greatly valued, They were there when required, but never intrusive. We enjoyed lovely long days by the pool and terrace, and it was such a pleasure to return after a day's hard touring to such a welcoming and cosy base. They have really thought of everything to provide a "home from home" for their guests, and the highest tribute we can pay is to admit there was nothing missing that we provide for our own clients in Montenegro. Only tiny recommendation, guys, is to buy some much bigger towels for your British guests!! The villa is very cool, but given the extremely hot temperatures during our visit, maybe the owners should consider air-conditioning? But these are minor points in a very satisfactory bigger picture. A superb holiday in an exceptinally fine villa, so well placed for Orvieto, Lake Bolsena, Todi, Spoletto and a host of other great hill towns and countryside. Thank you kindly and we hope to return one day.
