The Tuscany region

4 kms away is the small but sophisticated walled town of Sansepolcro (home to Piero della Francesca's famous work 'The Resurrection') which attracts visitors from all over the world. It has supermarkets and a full range of shops, banks, cafes and a post office, plus a lively market twice weekly and a wide selection of restaurants including 4 which appear in the Michelin guide. Sansepolcro has year-round events and festivals including the traditional crossbow contest the Palio della Balestra with rival town Gubbio.

Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Bologna are about 2 hours drive. All approximately an hour away are Lake Trasimeno (boat trips, wind surfing, child-friendly beach), Perugia, Assisi, Cortona and Gubbio. Arezzo (the location for the town shots in the oscar-winning film La Vita e Bella) is about 45 minutes away, Citta di Castello about 30 minutes and Anghiari 15-20 minutes. Also local are a variety of small hilltop towns include Caprese Michelangelo (allegedly the birthplace of the artist), Monterchi, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina and more.

Horse riding is available on the outskirts of the town, there is a bowling alley about 10 kms out of town and for the golfer a choice of a 9 or 18 hole course at Antognolla (handicap card required) in a lovely setting about 40 minutes drive away.
