About the home
Neatly perched on a south-facing hillside, La Torretta overlooks the beautiful village of Papiano and the Tiber Valley beyond. With undisturbed views, the sound of the village bell tower in the distance and gazing across the lush green countryside, this is a very special place to spend your precious holiday time. The location is perfect and within 30 minutes of the villa, most of Umbria’s best well known attractions can be experienced- or why not sample true Umbrian village life here? A five minute walk will take you directly into the village, to its bar, shops and piazza where an excellent yearly ‘festa’ takes place as well as other musical events each year. The house has been carefully designed and built in the style of a renaissance tower with adjoining wings. The two bedroom, two bathroom, kitchen/dining room and sitting room have been finished to a very high standard using local artisans to finish the grilles, handrails and fashion all the chestnut wooden doors and shutters.

The Umbria region
Umbria is a region of Central Italy, bordered by Tuscany to the west, the Marche to the east, Lazio to the south and Emilia Romagna to the North. This region is mostly hilly or mountainous, and described as the 'Green heart of Italy' as so much of It's landscape is luscious benefiting from the banks of the Tiber River and valley.
With rolling green expanses of olive grove and vineyard, woods of beech, oak and pine and craggy mountains, it earns its name, but has some lovely towns, and is famous for its hill towns. Completely landlocked, Umbria has beaches on the expansive Lake (Lago) Trasimeno in the north of the region. Towns and villages in Umbria include Perugia, Terni, Spoleto, Assisi, Gubbio, Orvieto, Spello, Todi, Narni, Montefaclo and Foligno.
The Perugia / Papiano area
Papiano village is about 800m walk from the Villa. There is a café bar serving light snacks only. There is a supermarket, butchers, bakers and a cake shop and a post office. The nearest shopping centre (Marsciano) is 10 minutes by car, and has a full range of shops and services and a big market on Monday mornings. Perugia, the provincial capital, is 25-30 minutes away by car. Papiano also has a train station, 5 mins drive outside the village which links you North to Perugia and South to Terni.
The village enjoys its own week of festival time, or locally called Sagra. The Sagra delle frutti di bosco is in August and you can enjoy the local ladies cooking, wine from the local cantinas dancing until the early hours in the market place.
