The Umbria region
After centuries of lying in the shadow, Umbria now blossoms in it's own right and is renowned for the beautiful greenery, it has in fact been christened the "Green heart of Italy". Umbria is one of Italy's smallest regions, it sits quietly east of it's more illustrious neighbour Tuscany of which Umbria is most certainly not green with envy.
As you drive through the Umbrian countryside you will be amazed by the sheer luxury of the panorama. The velvet rolling hills, dotted with castles and ancient villas, gradually roll into a scene of vineyards, olive and chestnut groves and elm forests, which surround the valleys below with glistening streams and a multitude of shiny rivers.
Umbria has much more to offer than hilltop towns, rolling hills and breathtaking views. There are many fascinating places to be discovered in Umbria from the tiny hamlets to the larger towns such as Assisi, the mystic city of St.Francis. Spoleto, renowned for it's music festival, Orvieto, famous for its Cathedral masterpiece of medieval architecture and Lake Trasimeno one of the largest lakes in Italy, with a magnificent backdrop of the surrounding hills and the glittery blue lake, sandy beaches, water sports and ferries to the tiny islands.
Perugia is the capital city of the region of Umbria perched high on a hill dominating the Tiber Valley giving the town a very special aspect.
The rich artistic and cultural patrimony and the natural environment make Perugia a unique city of major importance, it was first a settlement of the Umbrians, and later the Etruscans
The historical town centre of Todi is just 10 minutes drive away. The main road links which will take you to all the major towns and tourist centres are within a short distance making this oasis of peace and tranquillity an ideal place for both a relaxing, regenerating holiday and at the same time allowing you to take a daily trips to places of interest such as Todi, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi and many other smaller villages.
