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. The countryside is wonderfully unspoilt, with farms nestled along the flat river plains, and flanked by thick forests and soaring peaks in the east, which provide nature lovers and sports enthusiasts with a huge range of nature trails, mountain biking routes and bridle paths to take, allowing visitors to fully explore the whole region under their own steam and at their own pace.

A Gubbio apartment to rent is the ideal base for exploring the culture and cuisine of Umbria.

A truly magical and unforgettable experience

5 of 5
We arranged to meet the owners, Renno and Andreina in Mocaiana. They were very warm and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Because it was so late Renno gave us a quick introduction to the Palazzo and promised to be back at 9.00am to show us around the following day. Waking in the morning was a little surreal. Above us was a high ceiling with huge wooden beams and stone tiles and a wrought iron chandelier hung above us. There was sunlight streaming in through one of the heavy iron framed windows on to the stone floor and the sound of the birds and crickets outside along with the faint tinkle of cow-bells further down the valley was all we could hear. We had a quick breakfast and then set off to explore the castle and it’s surroundings.You could tell instantly that the restoration had been a labour of love for Renno and Andreina. The attention to detail and care is very apparent and there is a beautiful and tasteful mix of old and contemporary throughout the whole estate.The interior is simply beautiful and authentic and I personally had a sense of instant calm. The exterior of the building and the surrounding grounds are just as stunning.The grounds contain fruit trees and other large conifers, mostly the trademark Poplars that are so definitive of the Umbria and Tuscany regions. A large barbecue and huge stone pizza oven are available for parties al fresco and if things get too hot there is a good sized hot tub to cool off in.We were also adopted by Pepita (see photos), who we all fell in love with. A gentle and insanely happy dog who greeted us at the gate of the castle every time we came home. There are many beautiful places to visit in Umbria with several of the hill-top towns within an hours drive…Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia and the caves at Frasassi were breath-taking. I have many outstanding memories of our time here but one that stands out is the night there was a rather biblical thunderstorm! From our bed we could see the lightning bolts cracking through the sky and filling the night with an amazing cobalt blue light. And then the moon appeared, framed by the window. We watched as it traced an arc right in front of us, back lit by dramatic clouds and blue lightning. If you have any sense of drama, romance or fantasy or just have a desire to try something out of the ordinary…go to the Palazzo Scagliae. We will definitely be back one day very soon.

Spacious apartment, close to town centre

5 of 5
We had an excellent fortnight. Cagli is a charming, friendly and unspoilt town. There are many interesting towns and villages as well as lovely mountain walks and a beautiful gorge very nearby; Simone (the proprietor, who speaks very good English) is extremely helpful and informative in assisting guests to explore the area and try local specialities - all his suggestions to us were very successful. Urbino is of course a World Heritage site and is easily accessible, without mentioning Assisi, Gubbio and other tourist magnets to the west. The apartment is spacious and attractive, very quiet except for an occasional car or motor bike passing by. It is quite dark at the street side but has big sunny windows on the garden side. The garden is accessed around the side of the house. The apartment does not have WiFi which might disconcert some people; however there is free WiFi in the town square, free PCs in the town library and also WiFi in the nearest cafe. There is one very sloping parking space for the two apartment; we preferred to find a space (which was never a problem for a medium sized car) a little further away. The outstanding features for us were the attractions of Cagli as a location and the availability of Simone and his parents to talk to, which gave us more insight into the surroundings and people's lives.
