“We just returned from a wonderful stay in Umbria. The house is beautiful and offers a true escape right in the heart of Umbria. Johan's home was a perfect base for us to explore all of the towns in Umbria, and the home has stunning views and beautiful landscaping. ”
Johan's reviewsAs a host (2)
“This is a lovely home which was thoughtfully renovated. The house is in truly impeccable condition. The caretakers were outstanding as were the owners in terms of communication. They were excellent guests in my home. Umbria delivers authentic Italian landscapes and culture. My only disappointment is that it was often in the high 90s and this home was advertised as aircondtioned when it actually has only one bedroom with airconditioning. It was difficult to sleep at night due to the heat. Otherwise this was a fantastic experience. ”
Where is it?
In the near surroundings you’ll find the typical beautiful Umbrian villages and cities like Todi, Orvieto, Assisi and Perugia. The Roman history is all around you. If you are a medieval or renaissance art lover you’re in the right spot. Every trip offers you the calming green landscape with vineyards, olive yards and sunflowers. Wine and olive oil tasting is a lovely activity to do in the famous vineyards of Montefalco, only half an hour drive through the stunning landscape. On every hilltop is a medieval village to visit. The churches are full of fresco’s, Spoleto’s Duomo is especially worthwhile.
The local Umbrian cuisine is simple, pure and superb! You can try, but we gave up competing with the local nonna’s making their lovely pasta’s, meat and vegetable dishes. Always fresh from their own land, always handmade.
In our house is a list of nice places to go, to eat and drink and to visit.
