The Umbria region
Umbria region is ideal for people that are fascinated by landscapes and campaniles, fertile fields and picturesque woodlands, towns and villages with ancient palaces, churches and towers and castles.
The Spoleto / Poreta area
The house is situated on the edge of the historic centre of Poreta (12 kilometres from Spoleto) a small village which retains the character and charm of this region and has a 14th century castle overlooking it.
The village is found beside The road of the extra-virgin olive oil which goes from Spoleto to Assisi. All the hills on the east side of this road are characterized by olive groves, which probably date from the roman period, terraced with stone walls.
The landscape is dominated by the silver green colour of these trees which rises to a brilliant green of pine woods and oaks on the higher slopes. There are numerous castles still inhabited on the tops of the hills.
Reaching the hill of Montefalco you see long rows of cultivated grapes and this is The road of the Sagrantino along which there are many small cantinas still producing the special D.O.C.G. wine. Following the rivers which flow through the nearby Valnerina, you can find the best examples of Romanesque churches in Umbria.
