La Casetta, a cottage in Umbria, is a bright and colorful home perfect for a romantic getaway or for extra accommodation with the Villa Buona, just a few steps up a cobbled street. Dine al fresco under an ivy-covered cane pergola, and enjoy an afternoon nap on a day bed in the beautifully scented garden.

The cottage, completely redesigned by the attentive owner Andrea, is decorated with an eclectic mix of items found on their travels, including Moroccan rugs, French-style café table, Austrian clothes holders and objets d'art from India. The master bedroom has views over farmland and hills and both bedrooms are comfortable year-round with air conditioning or heating - though you may not need it in Umbria’s excellent climate! Relax in the living room, which has a working fireplace and Satellite TV with BBC channels.

Spello, an enchanting hillside town is 8 km from Assisi and 20 min drive from Perugia is ideal for walks on the cobblestone streets to a medieval church and Roman arches and ruins. Experience small town Italian life, with little intrusion from tourists. You’re well situated to drive to Umbria’s famous cities and the wineries of Montefalco with ease.

The region of Umbria is known as the ‘green heart of Italy". It is one of the finest holiday destinations, not only in Italy but also in the whole of Europe. Umbria is a land of spectacular, pristine, and largely rural landscapes, including rolling wooded hills, mountains, valleys and of course sublime art and architecture.

Only a 2 hour drive from Rome and just 8 kms from Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis, lies the enchanting hillside town of Spello. Quiet and elegant with excellent restaurants famed for typical robust Umbrian cuisine, fine wines and historic buildings, Spello is the ideal base from which to discover and explore this extraordinary part of Italy.

Within easy reach are the famous hill towns of Orvieto (with its legendary cathedral), Todi, Città di Castello, Gubbio, Perugia, Spoleto and the highly praised wine producing region of Montefalco.

For those who are adventurous, outdoor activities are abundant in the area.

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.

    We had a wonderful time staying in your Casetta for the past week. We felt like we were at home! It is lovely and we felt very relaxed.
