The landscapes of Umbria surround you at Casale Terra Bianca with its vast estate of olive groves and woodland. Indeed, this pretty stone casa encapsulates the essence of Umbria, not just because of its beautiful setting but also its charm and authenticity, not far from idyllic hilltop villages and the glorious Lake Trasimeno.

Clad in magical spring wisteria, this picture-book Umbrian house is a joy to the eye with climbing roses, fruit trees and an abundance of summer colour in the pretty enclosed garden. The sunny swimming pool is perfect for cooling off on lingering afternoons whilst al-fresco meals can be enjoyed by the wood-burning oven that dates back to the mid-19th century when the house was originally constructed.

Casale Terra Bianca has been in the same family for a number of years. The devoted owners have sensitively restored the interiors whilst retaining its true character with terracotta floors, exposed beams and period furnishings. Admire the exquisite fireplace in the living room, gather round the convivial table in the dining area or seek solace in the little music room. The rustic bedrooms are a delight with sweet touches and some with an air of understated romance. Across this home there is a feel of warmth and authenticity that is so typical of this mesmerising region.

Beyond the enclosed garden, the 35-hectare estate is waiting to be explored – follow marked trails through the woodland as you come across pines, a stream and over a thousand olive trees that have been lovingly planted by the owners and produce an excellent organic olive oil.

There is also so much to experience in Umbria with Lake Trasimeno just a 20-minute drive away, perfect for watersports, walking, bird-watching and discovering pretty lakeside villages and towns including nearby Castiglione del Lago. Take a ferry across to the lake’s islands, join a guided tour of the nature reserve or ride horses in nearby woodland.

Explore Umbrian hilltop villages such as Città della Pieve, head further afield to Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto or cross over into southern Tuscany and be enchanted by Montepulciano, Pienza and Cortona. Italophiles may even be tempted to visit Florence or Rome for the day, perhaps by train. That said, immersed in the Umbrian countryside, it may be hard to leave the tranquillity of your rural idyll.

Nestled in Umbria, close to the border with Tuscany, Casale Terra Bianca enjoys an enchanting setting surrounded by a vast estate of olive trees (producing an excellent olive oil) and woodland with marked trails for wonderful walks.

Despite this remote location, the nearest village is just 5km away where you will find a bakery, café and a restaurant as well as practical amenities such as a petrol station and cash machine. There is a large supermarket just a little further, around 8km away.

The hilltop village of Città della Pieve (12km) is an especially beautiful place to visit with its palazzi, churches, historic architecture and theatre, not to mention characterful cafes and restaurants. If you are staying in late June then look out for the Infiorata festival when locals fill the lanes with flower petals whilst in August the village hosts the Palio dei Terzieri with all sorts of Renaissance inspired festivities.  

Lake Trasimeno (15km) is also a short drive away, ideal for walking, watersports (such as canoeing, kayaking and sailing) or just exploring some of the picturesque lakeside villages. The incredible Castiglione del Lago (18km) with its hilltop castle and Etruscan tombs is a must-see and it’s also a good place to pick up a summer ferry to one of the lake’s islands. La Valle Nature Reserve, around half an hour away, offers guided tours in the summer months, perfect for bird-watchers and nature lovers.

Cross over the border into Tuscany and explore some of the magical hilltop towns in the southern part of this region. Montepulciano (34km) is a tremendous place, not just because of it’s world famous Vino Nobile and wine-tasting opportunities, but also due to its historic beauty. Perhaps combine with a visit to Pienza (47km) to try some of the village’s pecorino cheese and appreciate its Renaissance architecture – Pienza is classed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Cortona (39km) is also one of southern Tuscany’s most loved towns made famous by ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’. It has a fascinating Etruscan and Roman history which you can learn about in the Museo dell'Accademia Etrusca or simply soak up the historic ambience by wandering around its medieval lanes and visiting its pretty shops and restaurants. The views of the surrounding Val di Chiana are also outstanding.

Back to the beautiful region of Umbria, visit the charming city of Perugia (42km), the glorious town of Orvieto (58km) and amazing Assisi (66km). Other ways to experience the mesmerising landscapes of Umbria are by horse-riding, hiking or cycling through the undulating hills filled with olive groves, woodland and hidden hilltop villages. Some of the country’s most authentic cuisine can be sampled in local osterias such as truffles, legume, pasta, wild boar and so much more.

If you are longing to visit the great Italian cities of Rome or Florence then look out for express trains departing from nearby Chiusi-Chianciano Terme (11km) and you could be in either city in under two hours.

Region

Umbria has best of Italy to offer: rolling landscapes, wine, beautiful towns and villages, olive oil, expansive lakes and the food, glorious food. A holiday here can be as lazy, active, cultured and as delicious as you like.

This region is scattered with pretty, picturesque villages, while the area has a rich cultural heritage. From thermal pools to medieval cathedrals and olive oil museum, Umbria has an intriguing amount of history to discover.

Both Rome and Florence are accessible within a day trip, while the closest towns of interest would be Orvieto, the old town which is a fascinating series of winding streets, piazzas and a colourful weekly market. 

History lovers will be spoilt - from the first century Roman amphitheatres to the twelfth-century duomos, to the fourteenth-century hilltop fortresses,  the glut of remnants from the medieval and Bronze Age that punctuate the region is impressive.

In a beautiful setting, the estate surrounding the cottage and enclosed gardens are wonderful – follow marked trails through the woodland and discover the stream, pond and an abundance of nature amongst the pine trees.

You are a short drive from the shores of Lake Trasimeno, perfect for family walks, nature discovery and a range of watersports such as sailing, canoeing, kayaking and pedal boats. Take a ferry across to one of the islands to discover yet more delights or just relax by a lakeside beach.

Horse-riding is available near Città della Pieve or ride donkeys near Panicale. For a change of scene, look out for a small waterpark within a 20-minute drive with three slides and inflatables.

History lovers will adore admiring the palazzi and incredible architecture in local villages such as Città della Pieve – look out for summer festivities taking place in late June and August as well. The idyllic village of Castiglione del Lago, on Lake Trasimeno, is also enchanting with its castle and Etruscan tombs. There is a variety of towns within less than an hour that are home to fascinating museums about the history of this remarkable area.

The city of Perugia is another great day out for families with its Chocolate Factory and Museum and, just outside, the brilliant amusement park, Città della Domenica, with all sorts to do for a variety of ages.
