    Nicknamed the ‘Windy Town’ due to its elevated position nearly 500 metres above sea level, Civitella del Lago is a tiny village in the Orvieto area of Umbria, Italy. The village is something of a well-kept secret, as it is home to a number of retired ex-pats but does not receive large numbers of tourists – meaning it is great for a relaxing break in the heart of the Umbrian countryside.

    Things to do in Civitella del Lago, Italy

    Civitella del Lago is a remote destination high up in the hills of Umbria, and if you have ever dreamed of a secluded and authentic Italian hideaway, this may well be it. Self-catering accommodation in Civitella del Lago is limited in numbers – so it is vital that you get in early if you fancy days of sightseeing and walking amongst olive groves, and nights of relaxing with a glass of local wine on the terrace of your Civitella del Lago holiday rental villa. Its elevated position means that on a clear day it is possible to see all the way from Civitella del Lago to the hills above the Tyrrhenian Sea.

    Civitella del Lago is a frazione (parish) of the commune of Baschi, and its administrative centre can be reached in fifteen minutes by car. Baschi is probably the best place to go to stock up on food and drink supplies, as although there are amenities in Civitella del Lago the village does not have anything in the way of large supermarkets. There are, however, two excellent restaurants to be enjoyed if you fancy eating out.

    There is a strong sense of local pride in Civitella del Lago, and if you are fortunate enough to visit during a festival period you will witness this in full swing. Top events in the village include the ‘Amici della Guzzi’ motorbike gathering and the ‘Ovopinto’ egg-painting competition at Easter.
