Villa in Todi
Torre al Monte
Gather for rooftop feasts amid 360-degree views of the Umbrian landscape at this medieval tower in Perugia. Built in the 12th century and listed as historic in 1954, the tower was recently restored based on in-depth research. Ample living and dining areas open to a private park with swimming pool and 18th-century chapel, ideal for wedding ceremonies. Drive 10 kilometers to the hilltop city of Todi. The interior of the 5-story tower balances antique features (terracotta floors, wood ceiling beams, period doors) with modern decor and comforts. Multiple living areas and kitchens provide a variety of settings for quiet downtime or festive meals. Crowning the home is the panoramic terrace, perched about 24 meters above ground, with vistas of Todi and the rolling countryside.  Surrounding the tower, the beautifully landscaped park evokes the great Italian gardens of the 19th century, inviting you to shaded alfresco lunches, refreshing swims, or momentous celebrations amid the fragrances of olive, rosemary, and age-old rose gardens.  Todi has been called “the world’s most livable city” as well as the archetypal “sustainable city,” a testament to its equilibrium of endurance and renewal. Every summer, its ancient streets pay host to Todi Music Masters, an international festival. The nearby city of Perugia hosts festivals for jazz and chocolate, while the town of Deruta is famous for ceramics. Of course, Umbria offers delicacies for the gourmet traveler, from olive oil to truffles to wines, all within easy reach of the villa.

Villa Aggia
Countryside views, traditional architecture and modern luxury at Villa Aggia make for the quintessential Perugia holiday—with a contemporary twist. Spend a dreamy week or two with friends and family, reserve the property for a relaxed Italian honeymoon. Pass through the villa’s gates and up a long driveway to reach this secluded haven and its stunning gardens and panoramic vistas. The grounds feature a private pool and plenty of loungers, plus a wood-burning oven, barbecue and an al-fresco dining table. Inside, you’ll find a fitness room, as well as high-tech amenities from a sound system and Dyson cooling fans to a TV and Wi-Fi. The beautiful masonry in the stone walls of the gardens carries through into the villa’s interiors, where graceful brick arches separate the rooms and stone floors bathed in sunlight are warm underfoot. Two living rooms let you catch up with relatives—or on reading—and a farmhouse-style dining area in the fully equipped kitchen makes it especially inviting. Whether you want to delve into the area’s history or simply sample the best of its produce, this vacation rental makes it easy. It’s less than a 10-minute drive from a church, park and museum, and less than 20 minutes by car from the nearest winery.

All about Umbria

Planning an Italian vacation in Umbria? We’re here to help!

Often overshadowed by its showier neighbour Tuscany to the northwest, Umbria is a well-guarded secret by those in the know. The ‘green heart’ of Italy is an undulating landscape of olive groves and vineyards, where almost every – stunning, medieval – town seems to perch in scenic splendour on the top of a hill. ‘La Terra Dei Santi’, the land of saints, is the birthplace of hundreds, including St Valentine, St Francis and St Benedict, and it’s filled with churches and chapels dedicated to such workers of miracles. Umbria borders neither the sea nor any other country, and this has led to a retention of old-world traditions in an area that’s also rich in Etruscan, Roman and medieval monuments. And of course, this being Italy, the food is divine – the region is particularly known for its truffles, hams and cheeses, and produces excellent wines.

 

In the footsteps of a saint

Assisi’s claim to fame is as the birthplace of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, who was born there in 1181. This pretty pink-stone medieval town on the slopes of Mount Subasio is one of the most visited in Umbria, thanks to the legacy of its famous onetime resident. Pilgrims make the journey to worship at his burial place, the immense Basilica di San Francesco, which was built in his honour between 1228 and 1253 and is now a Unesco World Heritage Site filled with beautiful frescoes. The surrounding Monte Subasio Park is steeped in the history of Saint Francis, and you can make like the man himself by taking in the surrounding natural wonders on a well-planned network of hiking trails, plus dirt roads ideal for horse riding and mountain biking.

 

Commemorating miracles

Although many of Umbria’s hill towns are blessed with better-than-average looks, your first sight of Orvieto, balanced atop huge craggy slabs of dark volcanic rock and towering over the plains of the Umbrian southwest, is pretty much guaranteed to make you go weak at the knees. The jewel in this lofty crown is the town’s magnificent Duomo, a 14th-century Gothic masterpiece known for its dazzling façade, which took some 300 years to complete. The cathedral was built to commemorate the happening at Bolsena in 1263, when a communion wafer was said to drip blood, thereby confirming the miracle of transubstantiation. Inside, the Chapel of San Brizio is decorated with Renaissance painter Luca Signorelli’s majestic frescoes of The Last Judgement, said to have been an influence on the work of Michelangelo. While you’re in town, pay a visit to the 2,600-year-old Necropoli Etrusca (Etruscan tombs) just below the town, which have in the past been used as wine storage, World War II bomb shelters and a means of escaping sieges, and are open to guided tours.

 

Great gastronomy

For foodies, Umbria’s top destination has to be the town of Norcia. Nestled in the foothills of the Sibillini Mountains, it is one of Italy’s leading gastronomic centers, known for its delicious hams, salamis, lentils, cheeses, and that elusive delicacy, the truffle. Come in summer to hunt the more common black truffle, or fall to seek out its rarer white cousin. The heart of the picturesque town is its main square, Piazza San Benedetto, which is named for its most famous son, St Benedict, and is the site of a Gothic basilica dedicated to him. In spring, the surrounding plains of the Piano Grande are carpeted in abundant colorful wildflowers, and there is good hiking to be had in the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini, where the highest peak, Monte Vettore, reaches 8,132 feet. Maps are available in Norcia, trails are well marked and there are tours provided by the parks service.

The beautiful pink-stone town of Assisi just exudes romance, and if you’re on the hunt for the perfect Italian wedding venue, our Assisi villa rentals could be just the thing. How about a gorgeous old castle villa set in the rolling green hills, its terraces blessed with panoramic views, a playground in the gardens for the little ones, and even a church on site, so you can invite your nearest and dearest to see you wed among the fruit and olive trees.
