Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Porano, Italy, Your Home Away From Home

To the east of Tuscany in Italy lies the landlocked region of Umbria. Umbria is divided into two provinces, Perugia to the north and Terni to the south. It is lesser known than the neighbouring Tuscany, but holidays in this region are perfect for those who want to get away from throngs of tourists and have a serene time. Porano is a tiny municipality or commune located in Terni, and is popular among visitors for its unspoiled heritage and spectacular beauty. With so much natural beauty all around you, you can bet your bottom dollar there are plenty of self catering properties to choose between.

Things To Do On Holiday in Porano

Porano is the ideal spot to stay and explore the entire region of Umbria. Although it is a lesser known place among tourists, finding self catering villas and other accommodation in Porano is easy. Umbria is a landlocked region so there isn’t a beach close by, but rather it is characterised by vast rolling fields of fresh emerald green. It is a treat to explore the numerous small villages nestled among the rolling hills, and to even be part of the local activities. Agro-tourism or tourism based around the local agricultural activities is picking up as a concept. Some of the main crops grown in this region include potatoes, tobacco, varieties of wheat, and beet root.

Places To Visit On Holiday in Porano

There are several villages around Porano that can be of enormous interest to those intent on exploring local culture and heritage. Numerous buildings and sites of historical and aesthetic value from the middle ages are also to be found in this region. Porano is especially famous for the discovery of the prehistoric Golini and Hescana caves which are a must see for any tourist. Perugia, a big town and the capital of the Umbria region is a good place for a spot of urban enjoyment. It is also home to the region’s largest art and heritage museum known as the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria. Nearby places of interest include the villages of Gubbio, the oldest village in Umbria; Assisi with its famous Basilica di San Francesco; and Todi, a village of immense natural beauty and character.

Weather in Porano

The weather in Umbria is quite similar to Tuscany, but being a landlocked region it is less humid in summer. The weather is mild and pleasant throughout the year, and summers are sunny and warm. The winter temperatures can drop to around 8 – 12 degrees Celsius. High rainfall is rarely seen in this region and it rains the most during autumn season: around October. Generally there is around 14 inches of rainfall per year in this region of Italy.

Travel to Porano

The closest big town to Porano is Perugia. Many villages are quite remote and it could be difficult to find public transport going to the exact village of your choice, however, the A1 Autostrada can give road access to many parts of Umbria. The Siena Perugia highway also provides access. Perugia is a fairly large town with the San Egidio International Airport (PEG). The airport is quite quiet but has connections with Bucharest, Milan and London Stansted (STN).

High spec villa, private and luxurious. Ideally located for recharging your batteries.

5 of 5
The villa is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, kiwi fruit plantations, woodlands, and is a stone's thow away from Montefiascone, the Bolsena lake, and Viterbo. The province of Lazio has much to offer in terms of food, drink, historic hilltop towns, landscapes, nature, and tourist destinations. The bonus is that Lazio is less popular, as most tourists flock to Tuscany, which means that the people around us were mainly local Italians. Upon arrival we were welcomed by the owners, Giuseppe and Valeria, who were most generous in offering the largest apartment to us at no extra cost, as we were the only guests staying at the villa. There are four apartments in the main building, two downstairs with terraces front and back, and two upstairs with a balcony and a mezzanine floor. There is an additional 2 person cottage next to the villa. Our kitchen was so well equipped, that we often ended up staying in and cooked the glut of vegetables that we received from Singh, the gardener/care taker. The nights we did go out for dinner, restaurants were close by and easy to find; a rental car is essential when hiring this property. The furniture and decoration inside, as well as in the grounds, were tasteful, well-coordinated, and of a high finish. There is plenty of seating in the grounds, providing multiple options for relaxation and shade. We booked this holiday last-minute, deciding to find some sun after a tiring house move and a grey English summer. Valeria and Giuseppe were very easy to contact, and very responsive to our needs during the stay. Again, generously allowing us to stay beyond the check out time because we had a late flight out, and the apartment was cleaned in the middle of our ten day stay, as well. The pool was the main attraction for us in booking this trip, and proved to be a delightful place to spend the day and soak up the sun. It is long and deep enough to be able to swim lengths, with a shallow end big enough to play in. The sunbeds and loungers are plentiful, the gazebos and parasols provide shade, and there are some pool toys. The route from the villa to the pool is through the orchard, where we picked fresh figs from the trees that were warmed up by the sun. Delicious. This is a gem of a place, and deserves many visitors. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here, and would happily return.
