Todi, the nearest lively town has wonderful restaurants, pizzerias and gelaterias, Italian local shops and there is more than enough choice for your daily needs. The large piazza in the centre of the town is perfect for sun downers.
Nearby the vineyards at Torgiano there is a well-known wine museum where you can learn about the history of Italian wine-making, who do tours. On the same ticket you can also visit the local olive oil museum.
In Deruta you will find the famous, traditional ceramics known as Maiolica (also found in other local towns) – true devotees of this china seek out Deruta where 250 factories still produce this colourful ceramic. From huge outdoor pots to tiny hand painted espresso cups – your suitcases will be bulging.
It is a great area for those who love their food and wine – with the celebrated Montefalco and Montepulciano not far away, sample tastings and tours galore before delicious lunches in any of these Umbrian hilltop towns – just wonderful!
Umbria is also known for its traditional linens and cashmere – these can be bought in nearby Todi.
Visit one of the many markets in the area and come home with a proper, authentic pizza cutter – or a great big hunk of parmesan cheese to last you through the Autumn.
Built on the wooded slopes of the rolling Umbrian hills, the international owners took down an original structure, replacing it with this sensitive build – a characterful house that incorporates stonework from the old farmhouse.
A careful curation of lamps, rugs, ceramics and modern art from Sicily, Puglia and Morocco add colour and character to the beautifully proportioned rooms. Puglian lamps with handmade shades, Sicilian ceramics, and modern art by Giuliano Cardella, all in rich, deep colours, add character.
Casa del Bosco sits in half an acre of lawned garden, surrounded by fruit and olive trees. With a wooded slope behind and stunning views all around, the property is 500m from the nearest road, making it private but not isolated. For al fresco dining there is a veranda at the front of the main house and another with a BBQ, next to the pool.
