    The tiny medieval village of Preggio is an increasingly popular holiday destination located 18km south-west of the town of Umbertide, Italy. A major reason for this surge in popularity is the increasing reputation of both the August Preggio Music Festival and the excellent Preggio Chestnut Festival, which is held every October. The village itself is surrounded by chestnut trees, in a hilltop setting around 600 metres above sea level, so is also a great base for walking and hiking holidays.
