Things to do in Gubbio, Italy

The Gubbio region is awash with historical treasures from every era. The Roman monuments of Gubbio are among some of the most inspiring in Umbria, fantastically in tact in many examples.

At almost every turn from a self catering property to rent in Gubbio you will be able to see a historic monument of note, whether roman, medieval or renaissance in origin.

Agri-tourism and farm holidays are hugely popular in the Gubbio region due to the wonderfully peaceful rural lifestyles which still dominate life in the region.

A Gubbio apartment to rent is the ideal base for exploring the culture and cuisine of Umbria. Almost every town and village is home to an excellent little restaurant in which to sample the finest of Umbrian cuisine.

A lovely traditional house with great pool area

4 of 5
Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Plus points: 1. A traditional, cosy stone house, lovely large pool, great location in terms of restaurants (short drives away) 2. Adequately equipped kitchenette with dishwasher and gas hob. Decent sized fridge in adjoining pantry 3 all four bedrroms have their own bathroom, all but the twin are en suite. Bathroom for the twin room doubles as a laundry room, with a good quality washing machine. 4. Owner is very close by (more of that later!) and speaks good English in case of problems On the downside: 1. Proximity to river meant lots of mosquitoes and so we had to keep windows closed at night. With no air conditioning this did make for some pretty uncomfortable nights! All bedrooms have small plug in fans but some nights this really wasnt enough. We understand it has been a particularly hot summer though! 2. We were bombarded with a LOT of 'rules', before our stay, on arrival and during our stay! The owner, Alex, and his wife and daughter, only live just a few metres away (NB driveway is shared, would be tight for more than two cars) and we never really felt completely relaxed because of this unfortunately. 3. We were told we had 1GB of free wifi a day, were warned that we woild be charged if we went over (we had taken this mean we would be updated each day). On our last afternoon, while relaxing by the pool, Alex confronted us to say that we had gone significantly over (a bit surprising as we had not downloaded any films or anything big) and we would be charged €97! Quite a shock. We did pay (it came out of the €150 deposit paid on arrival) but think we should have had more warning of how large the charge could be- so used to cheap wifi in the UK and with teenagers surfing youtube, Spotify etc its not normally something we have to think about! 4. I don't really think it should be down to guests to drive their organic/food rubbish to a public bin on the main road. Never encountered such a request before! We understand the bins aren't emptied regularly but if we stayed in a hotel or serviced apartment we would not expect to do this! 5. The communal lounge area is not condusive to relaxing in the evening. We were only a family of five, not sure how a bigger group would manage. There is just one small, 2/3 seater sofa. Yes you have the dining table, seating eight, but who wants to sit on hard chairs round a table all night? 6. The kitchen is really timy, again not sure how a bigger group would cope!
