The Umbria region

The hills over the Tiber River are peaceful and rolling, affording a superb location for relaxing in the Umbrian countryside any time of year. Located just above Deruta, the world famous center for hand-crafted Italian maiolica renowned since the early Renaissance for finely decorated ceramic wares. A short drive from the regional capital of Perugia and its Etruscan treasures, archaelogical sites, excellent museums and cultural offerings and equally close to the many beautiful towns of Umbria: Todi, Bevagna, Montefalco, Orvieto, Gubbio, etc. Drive to Lago Trasimeno, the largest lake in central Italy with its beautiful islands famed for handmade lace, restaurants noted of course for fresh lake specialties, swimming, fishing and atmospheric ferry rides connecting the islands with several lakeside towns such as Castiglione del Lago or Tuoro sul Trasimeno. The wine regions of Torgiano and Montefalco have wine tours, cantinas and museums on offer and there are great restaurants throughout the area. Popular festivals include Eurochocolate in Perugia, Le Gaite in Bevagna, the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, and many, many more. Or head toward Tuscany for a day exploring famous hilltowns such as Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena or Arezzo,


All shops and services are located nearby in Deruta which is a very short drive or a 15-minute walk away. Or head out the gates and wander the back roads, exploring the fields and forests of this very special corner of Umbria.

Located in the rolling green hills above Deruta, overlooking the Tiber Valley, all the marvellous cultural and natural sites of central Italy are a short drive away from the peace and tranquillity of this comfortable home.
