Things to Do at Montecchio, Umbria

Walking

This area is ideal for those who enjoy walking and hiking in the hills. For a more gentle stroll, take the waymarked path through the local forest from your Montecchio holiday villa to the archaeological site of the Pre-Roman necropolis of Copio where pre-Roman graves can be seen.

Learn About Olive Oil

Montecchio is well known for its fine olive oil, among the best in the world. The Olive Oil Museum in the town shows how the olives are grown, harvested and the oil extracted and there are samples to taste.

Local Festivals

During the summer, every town in this area of Umbria has its own "Sagra" or festival with a street party, parades, music and plenty of food. It is a great way to enjoy the Umbrian culture and see how the locals live in this unspoilt area. At Christmas everyone dresses in biblical dress and participates in a pageant. There are also festivals celebrating Easter, olive oil and the wine harvest.

Places to Visit Near Montecchio, Umbria Lago di Alviano

This beautiful lake in the scenic Tiber Valley is a natural oasis for wildlife and a natural park which is protected by the WWF. It is popular with nature-lovers and bird-spotters and is a lovely area for walking.

Orvieto

Orvieto is a definite must-see from your Montecchio holiday villa. It is in a dramatic location on vertical cliffs surrounded by defensive walls. It has a fabulous 13th century Duomo and the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo was the official papal residence for a time. Explore the underground city of caves and rooms which were designed for a siege or as an escape route, and visit the impressive Albornoz Fortress which was started in 1353.

Rome

A day trip hardly begins to touch on the wealth of sights in Rome, from the ancient monuments of the Colosseum, Pantheon and the Forum to the fabulous architecture and museums of St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City. Rome is easy to get to by train from the nearby Attigliano station.

Great villa in a lovely part of Italy with stunning views

5 of 5
The villa and pool was fantastic and perfectly suited to our needs for two weeks. The villa itself is well appointed and had everything required for our self catering holiday. The bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfectly adequate - beds were comfy, bathrooms were clean. The kitchen and living room was fine for preparing meals when we weren't using the BBQ. However, we didn't use the inside space much and this is where the villa comes into its own. There is a spacious covered veranda where we sat out, shaded from the daytime sun, and in the evenings ate and drunk in the balmy nighttime temperatures. The veranda overlooks a spacious garden containing a wonderful pool which is large enough to swim lengths in or just lounge on kilos (not provided). The views from the villa and pool are spectacular looking through a line of cypress trees to the Umbrian hills in the distance. The villa and pool is set within larger grounds that are private and not overlooked in any way. We whiled away much of the time on the loungers and in the pool enjoying the Umbrian weather. There are places to take time out of the sun by the pool or on the veranda. Alessia was there to meet us when we arrived and was on hand for any questions via Whatsapp during our stay. The pool was cleaned twice while we stayed and it was a nice touch for sheets and towels to be changed each week. The villa itself is fairly remote but reasonably close to local villages where there are restaurants and small supermarkets. The nearest populous village is Melezolle, about 7 minutes drive, which has a great pizza restaurant, a small supermarket and butchers. Slightly further afield, about 15-20 minutes by car, is Avigliano Umbro which has several great restaurants at reasonable prices. There is a larger supermarket, banks and other local shops. The area itself is stunningly beautiful and there are a number of towns/cities/views within 30-60 minutes drive that are well worth exploring: Orvieto, Todi, Spoletto, Narni, Perugia, Assisi, Marmore Waterfall, etc. We had a great stay and can thoroughly recommend this villa. The only criticism we had was the additional €100 cleaning charge which could have been included in the overall price. Likewise the €400 deposit is problematic if Euros are not your national currency and the money is only returned at the end of the holiday meaning that they have to be changed back. However, these are minor niggles and didn't detract from a perfect holiday.

The Yellow House, the area and the local town’s people deserves a 7 star rating.

5 of 5
The Yellow House well deserves the 5 star rating and with its latest improvements in my opinion 5 stars is not enough, The Management team have really thought of everything to cover all ages and weather by adding a hole new wing to the House creating a relaxing lounge with glass patio door and a games room with a pool table, table tennis and table top football. The Yellow House is perfectly located to visit numerous places of interest, this year we visited the Monster Park at Bomarzo which is only 40 mins away and well worth the visit also we visited the water falls of Casacata delle Marmite in Terni absolutely fantastic. If anyone wanted to see Italy at its best then The Yellow House is a great place to start.
