Umbria is known for being the ‘green heart’ of Italy. Its miles (and miles) of unspoilt vegetation and peaceful countryside bring it this title. The area also has picturesque medieval hill top villages dotted around the landscape. This tranquil province of Italy is a hotbed of rich cultural and culinary experiences set against a bright backdrop of incredible natural beauty. Our selection of luxury cottages to rent in Umbria will ensure that your time enjoying this relaxing haven is as lavish and satisfying as possible. Our collection of accommodation features luxury cottages that are every bit as beautiful as the area in which they are set.
Umbria is a particularly rural place to stay. It’s regarded as a very traditional Italian area, mostly uninfluenced by the presence of other cultures – which makes it perfect for holidaymakers looking to immerse themselves in an authentic Italian lifestyle. The area opens up to miles of rolling countryside, picturesque vineyards and rustic olive groves, perfect for those wanting to experience untouched Italy at its heart.
In additional to all its natural sights, Umbria has plenty more to offer its visitors. Perugia, the regional capital city, for example, is home to fascinating Gothic style palaces. And Assisi, located right on the slopes of Monte Subasio, is famous for its connections with St Francis. Norica, another popular area within the region, is famous for its gastronomy; its gorgeous mountain backdrop and Todi’s beautiful market square make it an absolute must-see for tourists. The ancient hill top village of Trevi is the perfect location to visit with your camera – it has breathtaking views thanks to its location and has recently been named one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Why not enjoy a relaxing boat trip or a lazy sail up the Tiber River whilst exploring Umbria? There are plenty of idyllic villages en-route in which you can sample traditional Italian food and locally produced wine. There are also famous beauty spots along the river and tranquil oxbow lakes. Lake Trasimeno is the largest lake in Central Italy; visitors can hire boats and canoes to enjoy the experience even further. In addition, don’t forget to stop off at the Cascate delle Marmore waterfalls.
