Make a holiday rental home or villa in Preggio, Italy your home away from home

The tiny medieval village of Preggio is an increasingly popular holiday destination located 18km south-west of the town of Umbertide, Italy. A major reason for this surge in popularity is the increasing reputation of both the August Preggio Music Festival and the excellent Preggio Chestnut Festival, which is held every October. The village itself is surrounded by chestnut trees, in a hilltop setting around 600 metres above sea level, so is also a great base for walking and hiking holidays.

The main theme of the festival is chestnuts, which provide an excellent warming snack as the temperatures start to drop in the evenings. Local residents open up their houses and cook up a selection of local dishes, which are served on the streets to hungry residents and visitors. These meals go down a treat with a glass of novella wine.

Eating and drinking are a big part of local life, and Preggio has a some excellent restaurants. These include Ristorante La Castagna and Ristorante Locanda Di Nonna Gelsa, which are located close to eachother in the village centre. For something a little different try the Cinghiale (wild boar) - which is usually served with delicious crusty bread or fresh homemade pasta.

The Chestnut festival is not the only Preggio festival, as there is also a popular music event every August, which focuses mainly on opera and classical music. Preggio also has a number of historical places of interest, including the 13th century Holy Trinity Church of San Francesco and the 14th century Castle Polgeto.

Three generations under one roof and everyone had the most special of times. I can not thank Ashleigh enough for being so patient with me before we confirmed our booking (whilst I checked that the whole family was happy and we could sort flights etc) and then recommending places to eat and visit. Meanwhile on the ground we were greeted by Patritzia who really could not do enough for us - a lasagne and shopping as ordered on arrival and even arranged a trip to a local Olive Oil processing business. She could not have done more. We were also lucky enough to help with the harvesting of olives from the trees in the spectacular garden. This kept the children occupied for a while and even one of them for 4 hours (he was hooked!). A big thank you to Vittoria for being so patient with them all! There was plenty to do nearby - Assisi, Gubbio, Cortona, the Lake which really appealed to all ages. We also went to nearby restaurants and used the wood fired pizza oven twice which the children loved. It is also an idyllic spot with a view that I never tired off. We will all take away some amazing memories and I would recommend this property to anyone. Thank you

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay .Caroline and Federico could not have been more helpful (He even loaded the washing machine for us!) Beautiful views; secluded + relaxing. Pool was great and Villa itself was charming. We would recommend. The drive up the hill is quite steep and gravelly and we were glad of our four-wheel drive car.
