Things to do on holiday in Amelia, Italy

The Amelia area has been the favoured holiday resort for the Italian elite since the Emperor Aureliano started using it as a retreat. With three ports along the River Tiber, Amelia became a very wealthy region, the legacy of which can be seen throughout the area due to the stunning architecture found across the ancient hill towns as well as the astonishing number of archaeological discoveries. The Amelia area has some of the Umbria’s oldest fortified towns, and anyone with even a fleeting interest in medieval life will be right at home in self catering Amelia accommodation.

Anyone with a taste for fine food will be very happy living in self catering Amelia accommodation. The famous cuisine of Amelia is fantastically hearty, stemming from local produce found in the forests, rivers and hills of the Umbrian countryside. Roast meat, especially game, has a central role to play in Amelia’s famous gastronomy, and the fruit and olive oils you can pick up in the numerous markets are world class, perfect for stocking the shelves of your self catering accommodation in Amelia.

There are some wonderful carnivals and festivals to enjoy throughout the year from a villa or self catering accommodation in Amelia. Rituals and celebrations in Amelia clearly stem from ancient rituals and celebrations, with bizarrely costumed ballad singers and masked processions performing to delighted onlookers.

Places to visit on holiday in Amelia, Italy

The town of Amelia itself sit on top of a rock outcrop, overlooking the Umbrian countryside and the gently flowing River Tevere. The city has ancient origins, with the enormous defensive walls still standing proud, dating back to the 6th century BC. The town has risen to global fame due to its cuisine, which can be sampled in a huge range of world class restaurants throughout the town.

Just a few kilometres away is the town of Avigliano Umbro, which is home to the astonishing Porta Vecchia, a magnificently decorated symbol of the town’s long history. The Church of Sant’Egidio, which is adorned with beautiful frescos and the staggeringly robust Silano Castle are certainly worth visiting from any self catering Amelia accommodation.

The town of Giove is the centre of a huge number of archaeological discoveries, although nothing had been found relating to the goddess Jupiter, who the town is reportedly named after, which casts serious doubts over the supposed origins of Giove. However, there is still plenty to entertain visitors, not least the fantastic range of restaurants which fill the age old streets.

The villa is amazing and full of charm, the facilities are fantastic especially the games room and swimming pool which with children is a must. Cannot recommend enough and will definitely be booking again for next year.

                                                                                                  Over the years, I've stayed in quite a few vacation rental properties in Italy, but in many ways, this was the best experience ever. Firstly, the location is just beautiful, the property is charming, the cottages are comfortable and well equipped and the pool is beautiful. The owners Helene and Claudio are delightful. They live on the property which initially I was a little wary of, but they really find the perfect balance between not being intrusive but being helpful and friendly. I had told them that I was looking forward doing some Italian cooking while I was there and a couple of times during our stay we woke up to a huge bucket of produce from their gardens. They also said that I should feel free to help myself to the many herbs and fruits that grow on the property - let's just say, we ate a lot of amazing figs that week! This spots is great for families and for couples. The cottages have enough privacy that you don't really have to deal with the other visitors unless you want to. The only gentle caveat I would add to my review is that this isn't a great place if you have a cat allergy or just don't like them. However, if, like me, you're a cat person, the constant present of adorable, extremely friendly kitties is just an added bonus.

We went into the pool everyday and explored the local area after talking with the owner. The owner is a phone call or e-mail away if you need anything. This is our second time at this property as we loved it so much the first time we had to come back.
