Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Umbria is the heart of Italy, the only region that neither borders the sea or another country. It is Italy's most rural region with beautiful rolling hills, sunflower fields, olive groves and vineyards. The countryside is dotted with atmospheric medieval villages, towns and cities.

Umbria hosts more festivals than any other region of Italy including Perugia's Jazz and Chocolate festivals. There is also plentiful outdoor activities such as walking, hiking and cycling.

Castello delle Forme

Castello Delle Forme is an ideal base to explore the delights of Umbria and Tuscany. Local restaurants offer fine dining or a local family run experience. There are nearbyl vineyards, which offer tours and tastings.

Perugia is a beautiful medieval city with a stunning central piazza and architecture; it also offers a wide array of museums, churches and galleries. It is also a modern university town with an international and cosmopolitan feel. Perugia offers many festivals. Some of the most famous are the Jazz festival which takes place in July and the October Chocolate festival. There is a great range of Italian and international brands for the fashion lover.

Perugia offers a huge number of bars and restaurants ranging from top end restaurants offering haute cuisine to good value family run pizzerias. All offer delicious fresh and locally sourced ingredients. There are also many bars and gelaterias.

Deruta is a charming typically Italian town, which specialises in ceramics and has an excellent traditional restaurant which serves a typically Umbrian set menu.

Assisi is a beautiful world heritage site, which has hardly changed since the time of it's most famous resident, St Francis. The town offers a multitude of historical and spiritual places of interest.

Umbria is landlocked so the nearest beaches are on either coast about a 2-hour journey away. Lake Trasimeno is Italy's largest natural, non-Alpine lake. It is an idyllic place with beaches and many walking trials. There are several towns on the lakes shores which make a pleasant lunchtime stop or afternoon stroll.

Todi is one of the originators of the slow city and food movement. The town square is one of the most famous in Italy. This beautiful place is well worth a visit.

Florence and Rome are both situated about 2-hours away, making a perfect day trip.
