A peaceful spot in the lovely Umbrian hills north of Terni. Lots of places to explore nearby, walks in the hills, tiny medieval villages, wonderful trattorias and the elegance of Spoleto not far away. We relaxed by the pool in glorious weather, barbecued delicious local sausages and dined under the pergola eating wild asparagus picked from the verges. Clare and Mario were perfect hosts, full of ideas to keep us entertained and great company whilst they spent the weekend with us. We did trips to Spoleto, Norcia, Assisi, Labro and Piedeluco all fascinating and beautiful places, many of which are off the regular tourist trail yet real Umbrian gems. All in all a totally relaxing stay.
This was not our first vacation in Italy, but this lovely home with many unique features was a great base to discover medieval towns and villages. It's in a small village just a few miles from a highway going to Spoleto, about 10 miles away, and Assisi. Some days we planned walks in the hills, looking for wild asparagus, enjoying mountains flowers. A riding stable nearby offers day rides into the mountains, with luscious lunch. A highlight of our stay was a cooking lesson with a local chef who taught us how to make ravioli. We plan to come back in the fall to see the colors of autumn and sample new wine and the local olive oil.
