This is the road where Southern Tuscany ambles into its rolling-green Umbrian cousin. It leads through glimmering olives groves to shimmering lakes. It travels up hills and down vales, through verdant rolling hills topped by medieval villages. Ancient ruins bathe languidly in the sun. Since the mysterious Etruscans first groomed and farmed these fertile lands, eight-thousand years ago, foodies and wine-lovers across the millennia have been rewarded with an abundance of seasonal flavours.
And Villa Gioiella Umbrian Holiday home is right in the middle of it all
