Endlessly picturesque, the Perugia area of Umbria remains one of the most idealized settings in Italy and the villa is within reach of several areas not to be missed.
The medieval village of Castel Rigone sits atop Monterone in the central Apennines overlooking breathtaking views of Lake Trasimeno. Ancient by any standards, it was founded in the 6th century and became a fortified bulwark for neighboring Perugia. The stunning hilltop capital city of Perugia with it’s beautiful historic center is a thirty minute drive and is also a contemporary university town with great nightlife and youthful energy. The Etruscan era town Umbertide is north east at the confluence of the Reggia and Tiber and the Neighboring UNESCO site of Val d’Orcia with the remarkable hilltop village of Montepulciano and nearby Pienza are an hour west. The Etruscan city of Arezzo lies an hour north.
One of the oldest hilltop towns in the region, Cortona is within a half hour and offers the iconic views and classic Romanesque beauty of Tuscany. Ideally situated, you are within two hours from Florence, the Chianti area and the wine capitals of Montepulciano and Montalcino, Siena and Assisi. It doesn’t get much better than this.
