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.

A delightful villa in a beautiful location equipped with everything you could want

5 of 5
We had a fantastic 2 weeks in Collazzone in this lovely villa. The accommodation is situated in beautiful grounds with a fantastic pool. It is located just a short drive away from shops and restaurants. Carol and Mel couldn't have been more helpful with tips and advice. We would highly recommend a visit

Fabulous house in a lovely area

5 of 5
This house was pretty perfect. It is spacious, well laid out, well equipped, pretty and comfortable - we loved it. Its close proximity to Todi was a real bonus - what a lovely town to have on your doorstep. The garden was lovely, the views across the fields stunning and sitting on the bench, with a nice cold beer, watching the shooting stars was very enjoyable! The pool is a great size and the perfect temperature. The games room in the basement was a real plus - nice and cool and the kids (big and small) loved it. There is so much to do in the area. The couple who look after the house were lovely and helpful and it was a brilliant holiday.
