  • wonderful property! excellent host! Loved Lucca!

    "We loved our stay in Lucca - and this wonderful apartment made us feel at home. The unit was clean and very well appointed - easy to prepare meals and be comfortable. The location is excellent with great shopping, dining and interesting historical points all within walking distance. Our manager host, Eva, was absolutely wonderful - very helpful in getting us around the great city of Lucca and suggesting the best spots for dining and must-see points. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Sitting on top of the World.

    "We stayed in the apartment for nearly 3 weeks and every day was a pleasure. The views are truly stunning. I never got tired of sitting on the patio looking out over the Adriatic. The place was on of the best equipped we have ever stayed in and we have used Home Away quite a bit. We found a couple of very nice restaurants within a couple hundred yards from our door. Silvi Alta was one of the most charming little towns we have stayed in Italy. The piazza of the town was just below the balcony of our bedroom. We had several guests (Italian friends and family) join us for short stays. The beach and beach action is a short ride down the hill. It was great being in a quiet somewhat out of the way spot. We had so much fun with my wife's stepfather's family, that there was little time for sightseeing on our own. No matter, we were having too much fun with other activities (mostly eating and socializing). If you are looking for an out of the way spot that has the feel and texture of the real Italy, this place is for you."

  • Great experience

    "What a beautiful house and location! We stayed for two great weeks where we enjoyed the near by beaches and towns and some days we just lazed around the pool which has a nice breeze on a hill. One of the highlights during our time there was having Olga teach us how to make pasta at the house, even though we didn't speak much Italian, it worked! The owner was kind and welcoming and kept the pool clean during our stay."

  • Excellent!

    "We had a fantastic two weeks in July at Sheila's apartment. The accommodation was exactly as described with a nice view of the sea from the garden and a great outdoor patio space where we spent most of our time when not out and about exploring beautiful Sardinia. The complex is lovely, well maintianed and has a touch of class about it. The swimming pool is great with a fansastic view of the bay. The beach within walking distance was lovely and despite we had a car we spent 6 days on this beach. The beach cafe was good value and we had lunch a couple of times overlooking the water with fresh fish of the day. Cooking facilities were fine with a hob with 3 gas burners and one electric. If you do have a car we can thoroughly reccomend a drive to La Cinta and Brandinchi beach - just amazing. We are already planning to go back and stay in the apartment next year!"

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?
