typical rural stone house hillside, 2-8 sleeps

Overview

A beautiful Italian vacation home nestled in the lush green hills of Umbria. This carefully restored villa is the essence of tranquility ,it is surrounded by fields of rising green pastures, lazy sheep grazing in the sun, sounds of birds happily chirping, and a soft gentle breeze. The quiet hillsides are etched by mountains, farmers tending to their land, and the occasional sound of a tractor or car in the far off distance. The villa is truly the ideal vacation home for the traveler seeking a peaceful holiday where one can be in contact with nature and the true spirit of the magic region of Umbria. The house is located in a very tiny rural village composed by 10 houses only and strategically located in order to visit the most important places of Umbria. In fact, Spoleto is only 14 kms far, Trevi, Spello, Assisi and Perugia are less than 1 hour by car.The picturesque and medieval Valnerina with its ruins, castles and historical villages is within 10 minutes from the house. Rome is also very close and easy to reach in just 1 hour from the Terni’s rail station that is a good way to avoid the traffic jump into the busy capital.

A beautiful stone house. We really enjoyed our stay. The village is tiny but very friendly. Despite being furnished with antiques the house was family friendly and was a relaxing place to stay with 3 small children. The owner was very helpful and speaks good English. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area and a garden area with great fews in which to relax.from Dani M. UK

"Four of us traveling together had a lovely time at Verde Umbria. The accommodation was even more attractive than its photos and beautifully equipped. Our hostess, Eleanora, was charming and very helpful. We would recommend this excellent house in its tiny village to anyone! We loved Umbria."from: N. Vay D. Usa
