Umbertide is an interesting town set in stunning scenery, although most guide books will focus upon the textile and ceramic industries. The Roman ruins of S Maria delle Sette are an essential attraction from any self catering Citta di Castello villa, as is the gothic Church of San Francesco. The best preserved medieval fortress in Perugia is situated just a few kilometres from Umbertide, the formidable Civitella Ranieri.

The old castle stands proudly atop the hill, with the town following the spiral staircase which leads up to the castle. The mushrooms, truffles and cheeses of the markets here are not to be ignored from a Citta di Castello holiday rental either.

The kitchen and utility room are large enough for a large group to cook together which is something that we really enjoyed. The bedrooms were cool in temperature and almost all of them had private terraces or balconies which was great. Even better was the fact that each bedroom had a private bathroom so there was no queuing and arguments over teenage mess. The pool area was lovely and also it was good that it was gated so secure for the real youngsters. The location was excellent for Citta do castellol Assisi, Perugia and also a day trip to Rome by train for just 20 euros. Try that in London...... Trestina itself was very nice with a number of bars and restaurants that were great value especially the ice creams. The hike back to the villa was a bit steep but good exercise and we drove sometimes even though it is not far. great place and good value for money. I would recommend it.

The setting is typically Umbrian/Tuscan and the property itself is lovely. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The heating on the pool meant that it was at a lovely temperature even early in the season before the sun really gets going. Trestina is the nearest town (10 min drive) and has all the necessary amenities with supermarkets etc. Cortona, Città di Castello and Umbertide are all 25 minutes away, very beautiful and with great restaurants, shops and evening entertainment and markets in the mornings. However, there are also closer restaurants with our favourite place only 5 minutes away in the next village. And we loved that we could by the odd item in the little shop in the village. Christina & Richard were fabulous hosts. They were on hand to offer valuable advice on everything from where to eat to the best places to shop (including the best markets to visit). We loved the fact that we could relax by the wonderful pool during the day and that there were so many lovely small to middle sized towns to visit near by. Fantastic!
