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).

Perfect stay, great location on Lake Bolsena

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week's stay in the lovely town of Marta.The apartment is very spacious, clean and well equipped. The location was a perfect base for day trips to explore the many historic towns in the surrounding countryside, there is so much to see. The town of Marta, on the beautiful Lake Bolsena, was a wonderful town to explore - friendly people and having great bakeries, delis and restaurants to check out. The owner Doreen was very helpful with the information she provided. Highly recommended.

Excellent 2 Bedroomed apartment easy walk to town and with lovely views !

5 of 5
We had 4 glorious weeks during October, 26 days of sun and only 2 rain ! The well furnished apartment has everything for short or long stays, we enjoyed the views of the lake and town from the terrace. The private parking was a bonus. The nice thing about Bolsena is that its not just for tourists - there is still lots to do and see in the "off peak" seasons, with weekly markets and an agricultural exhibition over one weekend during our stay. The local wine and cheese are excellent and low in price. As are the restaurants - very good service and helpful waiters. All in all this is an area to explore - a hidden Gem ! and only an hours drive from the edge of Rome, 20 mins from Orvietto and about the same from Bagnoreggio. Warmly reccomended - thank you - we will return.

Absolutely lovely

5 of 5
We have just returned from a week's holiday at this wonderful property. We were given a very warm welcome from our hosts, Carla and Franco, including a delicious Lasagne, to save us cooking a meal on our first evening. The property if beautiful. Driving off the road and down a track, the house sits in extensive gardens. They were still very pretty, even though we'd missed the best of Carla's many roses. The views go on and on, with the nearest house being about a quarter of a mile away, so the seclusion and privacy adds to the peace and quiet of this lovely holiday home. Carla and Franco departed the next morning and we were trusted to be the keepers of their property for our week's stay. The annex is very homely and comfortable, with everything you could need. Beautifully renovated, we have had a really relaxing time, and would love to return when the weather is a little warmer, so we could enjoy the gardens more than we were able on this occasion. Our hosts returned to wave us goodbye, and we enjoyed a morning coffee in their lovely farmhouse kitchen with them, and the lovely lady who looks after the annex, before we left. Wonderful hosts, a truly idyllic location, and a perfect holiday home. Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday.
