With its isolated, secluded location near the hilltop village of Montelaguardia, you will feel a world away from the major cities of Perugia and Assisi, but you are actually less than a 30 minute drive away. Within the village of Montelaguardia (about a 30 minute walk) you will find a bar for drinks and magazine/newspapers, and a grocery store. The nearest bus stop is about 600 meters away from the villa; a bus leaves every hour for Perugia. The trip takes about 20 minutes. A visit (or several) to Perugia, with its Etruscan origins, is a must. The Piazza IV Novembre, the heart of the city, is where locals and tourists gather. Any visit to Perugia should include a stroll along the Corso Vannucci for your evening passeggiata (stroll)! You can also spend a day in Assisi, where you will find the Basilica of St. Francis and the Pinacoteca Communale. Other convenient day trips include visits to Lake Trasimeno and onto Cortona and Arezzo. Gubbio, an hour’s drive away, is also welcoming, with its Palazzo dei Consoli, Piazza Grande, and Palazzo dei Podesta. Florence: 2 hour drive Gubbio: 1 hour drive Lake Trasimeno: 20 minute drive Assisi: 20 minute drive Perugia: 4 km Montelaguardia: 1.5 km
