ABOUT UMBRIA

Not much is said about Umbria: a small region rarely showing off in glamorous magazines featuring showgirls and football players. Maybe, this is part of the reason why Umbria still keeps, unadulterated, a mystic and serene halo, left out of time.

Umbrian towns are incredibly old, perched on breeze-stroked hills and floating on a sea of peaceful olive groves. The region has far more to offer than just the world-famous towns of Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Spoleto, Todi, Orvieto, Spello and Montefalco, gems of unchallenged beauty; off the beaten track, dwell an unnumbered amount of equally charming old villages and small hill-towns.

Umbria is the land of Saints, soaked into a sense of mystic that breaks in the skin and fills the spirit with joy, the same joy pervading S. Francis' wonderful Canticle of All Creatures.

Farming heritage still remains well visible, here, in the green heart of Italy; the country is alive and offers tasty, genuine products, laid on the tables of the many restaurants, inns, taverns, markets and ancient village festivals.

Umbria is a land of magic, an enchanting place where to settle or, simply, where to spend some time for vacations. It is a land of hills, woods, vineyards and olive groves, a land where the wind whispers through the leaves, a land of lakes, silence, starry nights, good food and excellent wine, art, culture, history, a land of ancient traditions and simplicity. Umbria cannot just be described in few words.

Are we biased? Perhaps we are, nonetheless Umbria is beautiful!
