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).

Wonderful accommodation in idyllic setting

5 of 5
What a wonderful place! We have just returned from a lovely week staying at Casa Paradiso. It came highly recommended and we totally understand why. We couldn't have asked for any more, from the most affable and friendliest hosts, the perfect location to all sights and attractions, the most stunning position in the Umbrian Hills to the beautiful garden and accommodation. Thank you Carla and Franco for making our first family holiday such a special week, we will return! A presto!

Idyllic

5 of 5
Fabulous cottage - spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished - a holiday home but I could happily live there! Everything as described or better and the hosts, Tony and Karen couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Stunning countryside and views also a short drive from many amenities. Beautiful pool which will be perfect for the summer months - can't wait to return. Highly recommended.
