Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Amelia, Italy your home away from home

Amelia is perched on a rocky outcrop above the River Tevere in Umbria, Italy. The town is almost as old as time itself, surrounded by impressive defensive walls first thought to have existed in the 6th century BC. The ancient, picture postcard image of the town itself is perfectly contrasted by the vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere, which makes Amelia apartments some of the most popular in Italy for food and ancient architecture enthusiasts, as well as those just hoping to escape deep into the Italian countryside.

Things to do in Amelia, Italy

There are a huge range of historic attractions in and surrounding Amelia, as historically, the Amelia region is one of the wealthiest regions of Umbria. Medieval towns litter the area, and all along the banks of the River Tiber are small settlements of vast interest to anyone with a love of times gone by. Within Amelia, each and every corner you turn reveals a new sight. The Church of San Pancrazio, Church of San Francesco and the palaces of Farrattini e Petrignani are all essential items on any sightseeing list of Amelia, especially for those with an interest in ancient art.

It is the fine cuisine and gastronomy of Amelia that stays long in the mind. Local gastronomy clearly hails from the forests that still carpet much of the area, with mouth watering game dishes being at the top of the delicacy list. Figs, plums and fruits are served in pastries and pies, and there are plenty of walking and cycling trails on which to work off a few calories after lunch.

The festivals of Amelia are great fun to experience. Their origins date back many, many centuries and can regularly be described as bizarre! The Alviano ballad singers, lead by a man dressed as a woman, are a marvel to behold, singing ancient songs of the original tribes of Amelia. The main Amelia Carnival is a wonderful combination of singing, dancing and feasting, filled with ancient symbols of ancient Italy.

Weather in Amelia, Italy

The Amelia region enjoys a fantastically mild climate, which walkers, cyclists and riders can take advantage of during the off-season, exploring the countryside in complete peace. The summer months see temperatures climbing well into the 20’s and low 30’s (˚C) on a regular basis, with wonderfully balmy evenings being the toast of many holidaymakers.

Travel to Amelia, Italy

Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci Airport (FCO) is the closest airport to a holiday rental villa or apartment in Amelia, and is very well connected to the UK via British Airways, BMIbaby and Jet2.com flights. Although it is the closest airport, it is still over 100km away, and as a result, having the use of a hire car is strongly recommended. A hire car will also vastly improve your mobility once you arrive at your self catering Amelia holiday rental too.

The house is nice and fitted us perfectly. The pool is "hidden" away from the house (though very close), which is perfect when you have small children, as you do not have to worry about them when they play outside the house. The owner was extremely nice! He gave us a warm welcome, and during our stay he was staying in another house very close to the villa and offered to help us if we had any problems. He even drove our niece (1 year old) and her mom to the doctor because the baby was not feeling well, translated what the doctor said, paid the bill because they did not have enough cash (we of course paid him back later). So that was amazing! We can definitely recommend the villa!

The villa is perfect for five couples with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (+separate toilet). Everything is new and in perfect condition, high quality finishes and all the bathrooms have a big shower. Well equipped kitchen (it was very useful to have to fridge with freezer). The view over the Umbrian hills is very nice. Perfect location for getting away from it all whilst being near many cultural and natural attractions. Rome can be reached easily within 1 hour. We advice the restaurant La Gabelletta at few km. Strongly recommended to everyone Susan
