Umbrian Villa - La Palazzaccia
Umbertide, Umbria, Italy
(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
Pierantonio – 2 minutes from the villa:
The farming community of Pierantonio, a frazione of the comune of Umbertide just 9 km to the NW, is the lowest point in the entire Upper Tiber Valley subregion of Umbria. It is also one of the newest towns in the area, as both its location and its name suggest. Pierantonio is ideally located for visits to Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto and Lago di Trasimeno as well as exploring other parts of Umbria and Tuscany.
Umbertide – 10 minutes from the villa:
Umbertide - a small town which, in the area, is second in importance only to Città di Castello, was founded at around the 10th century according to the wishes of Uberto son of the King of Italy, and took the name of "Fracta filiorum Uberti". We recommend going to market morning on Wednesdays.
Montone – 20 minutes from the villa:
Built on a hill overlooking the Upper Tiber Valley, Montone which in Italian means 'Aries' of the 'Ram' is a small medieval village unchanged through the centuries and beautifully preserved – and definitely worth a visit! Surrounded by sturdy walls, the town is a network of narrow streets, alleys and steep stairways. Apart from its historic beauty, Montone is home to some delightful restaurants and a charming boutique hotel - Locanda del Capitano - as well as shops for the daily essentials.
Activities In The Local Area:
Just some of pastimes on offer include horse riding, tennis, wine and olive oil tasting, cookery lessons, cycling, golf, spa and walking, visit Lake Trasiemo Also in the summer you can enjoy the jazz and film festivals. Perugia Jazz Festival is around 9-18 July 2010.
