Spedalicchio

Umbertide is the nearest town, about a 12km drive. It has many shops and supermarkets and several good restaurants and pizzeria. There is a weekly colourful market and in September it celebrates it's festa of the 1800s which is always a local highlight.

the Niccone Valley is one of the most sought-after locations in the Tuscany-Umbria area, it is a beautiful green valley dotted with castles and stone houses full of olive groves and vineyards. The local vineyard is 5 minutes drive from Ca di Bracco and the owners run regular wine evenings at the vineyard. It is a great place for walking.
