  • What a Wonderful Villa!

    "This has been a trip that our family has dreamed about for years. Professor Antonio is a most gracious and accommodating host. From the moment that we stepped into the villa we were awed by the beauty of the grounds and home. Each room expresses a style that is meant for comfort and reflects a warmth that invites you to stay. Antonio has taken us to many places that are not tourist attractions, that have given us a chance to interact with the Italian people. James, the gardener, has always greeted us with a smile and a helping hand. James has also been very instrumental in being our communication link to Antonio and others. We are all glad that we have had the chance to get to know him. Our family chose to have a meal prepared by Mr. Luciano. There are not enough words to describe the culinary experience of this wonderful dinner. Antonio purchased fresh ingredients from the market that were expertly prepared. From antipasto to dessert there was not one complaint from our family of 9. We would highly recommend staying at Villa Amalia and if given the chance we would come back."

Umbria Travel Tips

The Green Heart of Italy--Umbria

Famous for its wonderful wines and sumptuous olives, Umbria Italy villas are perfect choices for visitors wanting to explore the real Italy. Located next to its more famous neighbor of Tuscany, this landlocked region boasts so many ancient towns and cities that it is impossible to describe each one. The weather ranges from mild winters to warm dry summers.

Getting into the Heart of Italy is Well Worth the Effort

To get to Umbria, fly to Rome and choose either the high-speed railway or rent a car to fully explore this historic area. Airlines such as Al Italia and Delta provide flights from most U.S. international airports to Rome. Another option is to fly to London and then to Perugia in Umbria. The main towns of Umbria include the regional capital, Perugia and Assisi, Citta di Castello, Bastia Umbria, Terni, Gubbio, and Foligno. These towns and many others possess a unique charm and character all its own. You'll find even more unique character in Umbria Italy vacation rentals.

From Buzzing with Life to Peace and Tranquility

Visitors to Umbria Italy vacation rentals will discover a beautiful region--an unspoiled jewel dating from medieval days. With so much on offer, visitors may wonder where to start. A good place may be at Assisi, at the Basilica de San Francesco. This monument to St. Francis is one of Italy’s most famous Renaissance churches. The views over the valley below and mountain backdrop make this a "not to be missed" part of any trip.

In Gubbio, with lovely pink houses with terracotta roofs, visitors discover a determinedly medieval city which prides itself on its history. The regional capital of Perugia is a buzzing town with wonderful restaurants and nightlife. While here, visitors may want to explore Lake Trasimeno for a swim, windsurfing or some sailing.

This region is steeped in history. When planning a sightseeing trip, visitors should consider the Rocca Maggiore castle, the Church of San Pierto, dedicated to Saint Benedict, dating back to the 10th century. The Palazzo dei Priori (Priori Palace) is a medieval palace that is a must-see.

When planning a trip here, allocate some culture time and take in some of the variety of museums. With so many, no matter where your chosen Umbria Italy villa is located, you are bound to find several close by. The National Gallery at Perugia includes several famous masterpieces and the National Archaeological Museum of Umbria is another not to be overlooked. For more up-to-date culture, try the Gallery of Contemporary Art at Spoleto or the Civic Museum at Gubbio to see the famous Eugubine tables, seven bronze plates dating from the 2nd century BC.

Do not be fooled into thinking these beautiful, historic towns and villages have nothing to offer after the darkness falls. Whether it is romantic dining al fresco by candlelight in a medieval square followed by a quiet stroll through ancient streets or dancing the night away, you will find it here. Theater-lovers will enjoy discovering the Communal Theater Todio, the Lyric Theater, Sant Eufemia, or one of the large selection of theaters around the area.

Shop till You Drop near Umbria Italy Accommodations

Two major local products in the region are excellent wine and scrumptious chocolate. For wine, why not buy direct from the Tenuta Poggio el Lupo Winery, near Orvieto? For chocolate-lovers, head to historic Perugia lodging. If you are planning a trip in October, the "Euro-Chocolate" festival will be a chocoholic's dream! For mementos and gifts, explore the many markets. In Spoleto, the monthly market provides great gifts or the Bastia, Piazza Mazzini market sells everything from Italian ceramics to wonderful antique jewelry.

Why Choose an Umbria Italy Villa

The freedom afforded by renting a home rather than being tied to the restrictions of hotels provides travelers the space to relax after a wonderful day of sightseeing, shopping, and exploring the region. These villas come equipped with everything necessary to make a comfortable and home-like environment and the opportunity to live an Italian lifestyle for your vacation. What more could anyone want?
