So much more than just an Umbrian Villa Holiday
Slow Travel in Umbria
Live like a local on an ancient hilltop in the village of Gioiella on the Umbria Tuscany border. Here you will experience all the slow-rolling dolce vita of Italian life.
In Gioiella – without even leaving the neighbourhood – you can enjoy delicious coffee in the morning + aperitivo and pizza at night at Bar Pub Ruota, or head to the local Conad delicatessen for a selection of Italian cheeses, wines (and, of course, Aperol Spritz) to enjoy while the sun sets and into the night, on the balcony.
Here you are surrounded by centuries of art, culture and the world’s most delicious food and wine in such famous villages as Cortona, Montepulciano, Chiusi and Citta della Pieve. And the lesser-known, but equally alluring, villages surrounding Lake Trasimeno such as Castiglione del Lago, Panicale, Paciano, Tuoro and Passignano sul Trasimeno.
