- About The Experience
Walk to a nearby restaurant for a traditional Italian meal, or prepare a home-cooked meal to be enjoyed al fresco? These are the kind of important decisions you’ll be making at this wonderfully restored farmhouse in the Umbrian countryside, and when you see the beautifully landscaped yard, see the breathtaking views, and smell the lavender growing nearby, it might be difficult to decide! Great for a large group, this farmhouse has a private pool and is well-located for experiencing the best of Umbria.
- Location Description
This property is in Umbria, in the area of Umbertide, which has an abundance of natural beauty and plenty of peace and quiet for those looking to get away from it all. There’s a restaurant a mere 500 meters away, and the small village of Spedaliccio is 3 km, with shops, restaurants, and amenities. For sightseeing, be sure to visit Cortona, an ancient Etruscan hilltop town that is full of art, history, and culture. Tour frescoed churches from the 13th century; explore the original city walls, and then visit an art exhibit in the 16th century fortress. You are also sure to find restaurants featuring delicious Tuscan dishes and ancient tombs dating back to the second century BC. There are plenty of shops selling antiques, crafts, wines, and olive oils, as well as a bank, post office, and pharmacy. Or, for a unique day trip, try Lake Trasimeno, one of the largest lakes in Italy. The towns around the lake have a multitude of castles – there are even some in the lake itself, on its three islands. Umbria’s capital city, Perugia, is also worth a visit for its rich and long history that is evident when gazing up at the ancient ruins and buildings that include old churches and cathedrals. There are trains from Perugia to Rome and Florence.
