Make a holiday rental home or villa in Civitella del Lago, Italy your home away from home

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.

Places to visit on holiday in Civitella del Lago, Italy

Despite its rural ‘middle of nowhere’ feel, Civitella del Lago is actually within close reach of a number of popular Umbrian tourist destinations such as Todi (25km) and Orvieto (23km). The former is revered for its excellent wines, whilst the latter is a historic city that sits on a hill overlooking the River Tiber and is perfect for a day visit.

Weather in Civitella del Lago, Italy

The elevated position of Civitella del Lago means that while summer temperatures are warm, they can sometimes come with a refreshing breeze, so are rarely stiflingly hot. July and August are the hottest months in which to visit, whilst January and February are the coldest.

Flights to Civitella del Lago, Italy

The best way of reaching Civitella del Lago from the UK is to fly to San Egidio Airport (PEG), which is 62km away, near Perugia. If you are unable to find a flight to suit to this destination, an alternative is to fly to Rome Fiumicino Airport (FCO), but this more than doubles your travel time upon arrival.

It is a truly extraordinary home, full of beautiful furniture, artefacts and art inside and surrounded by well kept gardens with plenty of different shaded areas for outdoor entertaining outside. The pool is stunning with a lovely waterfall, which kept my children entertained for hours on end. It really feels like a home from home, and is brilliantly equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lin and Carlos are extraordinarily welcoming and helpful, and their knowledge of the local area was very much welcomed; especially as we were there for the Acquaroleto festival, where Lin introduced us to the beauty and charm of the village, and enrolled my children for the painting class that was taking place. We have the fondest memories of our week at the Tower House, notably for the peace and tranquility that surrounds it, and the generous hospitality of our hosts.

Having once experienced the delights of the house, garden and the warm and unfailingly helpful hospitality of the owners, Lin and Carlos, you inevitably want to return. We hosted and entertained a procession of friends and family during the month, all of whom were enchanted by the house which is spacious, comfortable and full of beautiful art and artefacts, reflecting the taste, travels and interesting lives that Lin and Carlos have led. The Tower House and its splendid secluded garden have wonderful views of the surrounding hills and countryside. It is also ideally situated to explore the fascinating historic hill towns that make Umbria such a delightful destination. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Keith Parker, London

The villa is spacious and large enough so that you don't feel on top of each other. The beds are comfortable too which was of benefit as a number of our party have had back problems in the past (and all the bedrooms have fans too). For any large party or family looking for an Italian villa holiday we would definitely recommend this one. For those disinclined to cook we ate out a couple of times locally and the food was always good.
