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.

October is one of the busiest times of year in this part of Umbria, as it is when the Preggio Festival takes place. 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. Basic amenities can be found in the village, with more in the nearby towns and villages.

Fantastic Location for Family Reunion

5 of 5
We are a family of 5 with three small boys (8,6,3) who have just spent an amazing 10 days at Favola Umbria. We travelled together with 6 other adults and 7 other children all aged under 10. Our hosts Laila, Mario and Sara made sure we had everything we needed, and they were always available in person to answer questions we had about the local area etc. They really went out of their way to ensure we had some special memories of our Umbrian adventure. The villa is set in a beautiful area with amazing facilities and full privacy. The grounds are very secure and well kept and all our children had a fantastic time enjoying the pool, playground and other facilities. There are also some great trails right next to the villas for any keen walkers/runners. I'd recommend the villa to any family wanting to prioritise quality time together and wishing to have a central Umbrian location for day trips.
