Piegaro is a 5 minute drive and is a sleepy medieval town with some shops (restaurant, butcher, bakery, small grocery), bars, pharmacy, bank and a church.
Tavernelle di Panicale on the way to Perugia is better for stocking up as it has a supermarket.
Piegaro has a couple of restaurants, although a wider range of delicious restaurants can be found in Citta della Pieve, Panicale and Castiglione del Lago.
There is so much to do in the immediate area, the small local village has a museum of ancient glass making, a museum celebrating the life of a local paleontologist and some good restaurants and bars. Panicale also has a small opera theatre the ‘Teatro Cesare Caporali’.
The area is well known for its wine production – visit Orvieto or Montepulciano to sample wine and eat delicious local delicacies.
Lake Trasimeno is 25km away, where Umbria spills over into Tuscany. Around this 128 sq km lake, olive groves, vines, woods of oak and cypress and sunflower fields frame castle topped medieval towns, such as Castiglione del Lago and Passignano. You can swim from the lakeside beach at Castiglione del Lago.
The interesting town of Citta della Pieve is only 13km away from the villa. Famous for being the birthplace of 2 of Italy’s greatest Renaissance artists (Perugino being the more famous of the 2) – works by both artists can be found in St Maria and St Antonio churches. The town is small and has most of its medieval town wall intact. It boasts an 11th century tower and an impressive medieval castle. The labyrithine alleys date back to medieval times and the picturesque nooks and corners, steeped in memories and emotions are still full of life today. Enjoy the Nonna sitting outside her small house playing top trumps with her grandson or make the most of the beautiful girls who arrive on their Piaggios to have a latte mid morning in one of the many cafes.
Around the property you can do amazing hikes and mountain biking.
We were lucky enough to stay at this house and were completely blown away by the quality and imagination of the design. Completed in June 2018, everything in this house is about maximum comfort and ease- from the pure linen sheets to the top-spec kitchen appliances you will never want to leave! Positioned on the top of a hill and surrounded by old oak trees, the house commands the most beautiful views of the rolling Umbrian countryside. The sunsets are pure heaven…
Inside the 5 bedrooms are all beautifully designed, open plan with generous space and luxurious furnishings (we loved the bespoke light fittings). The guest house makes it perfect for 2 families wanting to holiday together. The kitchen is huge and very well equipped with quality appliances. It will be a joy to cook here or we can arrange staff to come in and cook for you. The open plan living room has an enormous sofa, Gervasoni style armchairs, carpets and plants all around to make this a restful space. The sitting and dining area is divided by an open cupboard and has a wood burning stove which opens on both sides and there is a large made to measure dining table with comfortable chairs.
Days here are spent exploring the profusion of beautiful hilltop towns and villages and the rich cultural history unique to each one, people watching and eating gelato in the local bar and taking a ‘passegiata’ in the evenings. It’s so easy to eat well here, cook with produce from the local markets or visit any of the local restaurants- small and hidden down cobbled alleys, inside you’re sure to find the most delicious local specialities.
Holidays here shouldn’t be limited to the summer holidays- the Italians celebrate Easter and Christmas in a big way (the Christmas tree of Gubbio and th Christmas market in caves of Perugia are not to be missed) and you would be so comfortable out of season with the houses’ wood fire and heated pool. There are so many events in Umbria throughout the year; locally at the beginning of May there is the glass blowing festival in Piegaro and during the first two weeks of October there is a chesnut festival in town.
