About this location

The Umbria region

Santa Caterina is located in spectacular position in northern Umbria.

The valley itself is outstanding in natural beauty, the mountains of Monte Tezio rises high above it, forests and olive groves then follow down to the valley where there are beautiful streams, well managed farmlands and a wonderful vineyard.

The valley is dotted with ancient stone properties all carefully restored which add to the beauty of the area. It is abundant with local wild life including deer, wild boar and our favourite Hoopee bird.

Umbria is know as the Green Heart of Italy and one of the most beautiful regions in Italy. Santa Caterina is perfectly located to explore Umbrias postcard perfect hill towns while also being a wonderful place to relax and spend time with family and friends.

San Giovanni del Pantano

It is very well located to use the amenities of the local area, it is only 1km of well maintained gravel road and then you reach the smallvillageofLa Bruna. The villages of Pierantonio is a 5 minute drive and the larger market town of Umbertide is a ten minute drive and so all the requirements of local shops, restaurants, banks etc are easy and quick to reach.

The main road of the E45 is only a 5 minute drive and this ensures that it is easy to reach after travelling to Italy and also allows you to visit the many attractions of the nearby area and also places a little further in neighbouring Tuscany, LeMarche and southern Umbria.

The University city of Perugia is only 20 minutes drive and this provides all the larger services such as rail and bus connections and the newly developed Perugia airport, as well as enjoying the famous festivals such as Umbria Jazz.and the Montone Film Festival.

Only 2kms from the property is Antognolla Golf Estate, which boasts a challenging Robert Trent Jones 2 Championship golf course and a wonderful restaurant.

Lake Trasimeno is a short half hour drive and there you can enjoy a large variety of watersports, take a ferry across to one of the Islands, visit many of the lovely towns that surround the lake and some of the wonderful restaurants, that serve fresh lake fish.

Visitors to the area and are able to enjoy the highlights of the area including Assisi and Gubbio and they can also feel part of the true Umbria. It is very much a thriving local area, where there is a vibrant market weekly in Umbertide, wild boar hunts take place in the valley weekly in the season and many local festas are held throughout the year where visitors to the area are very much welcomed.

A visit to Santa Caterina is an opportunity to experience the magic of Italy, the food, the culture and the stunning natual beauty.
