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.

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.

The setting is typically Umbrian/Tuscan and the property itself is lovely. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The heating on the pool meant that it was at a lovely temperature even early in the season before the sun really gets going. Trestina is the nearest town (10 min drive) and has all the necessary amenities with supermarkets etc. Cortona, Città di Castello and Umbertide are all 25 minutes away, very beautiful and with great restaurants, shops and evening entertainment and markets in the mornings. However, there are also closer restaurants with our favourite place only 5 minutes away in the next village. And we loved that we could by the odd item in the little shop in the village. Christina & Richard were fabulous hosts. They were on hand to offer valuable advice on everything from where to eat to the best places to shop (including the best markets to visit). We loved the fact that we could relax by the wonderful pool during the day and that there were so many lovely small to middle sized towns to visit near by. Fantastic!
