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.

Beautiful house ,grounds and veiws

5 of 5
The house and grounds were impeccably clean and well equipped. We have just returned from celebrating my parents golden wedding anniversary, and I couldn't of imagined celebrating it in any other way. ... it was just perfect! The views where to die for... we sat out in the evening sun taking in the views and listening to the sound of the birds and bullfrogs. The pool was warm and the children never tired of it... we even managed to entertain 6 teenagers with table tennis and table football... no sulky faces !! We had days out in Rome , Florence,Cortona, boat trips and a dayvout at the market in Umbertide. The house was immaculate and very comfortable,it felt quite luxurious , but still retained its Tuscan charm. The owners have excellent comms and were incredibly helpful. I would reccomend this rental to anybody and hope to book again in the very near future.

Stunning location.

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa del Lupo. The little hamlet is delightful and the views of this quiet valley really stunning. The house had everything we needed and the warm pool was very welcome. We visited Siena, Montepulciano, Castel Rigone, Assisi and Todi and had some great meals out as well as at the house.
