Make a holiday rental home or apartment in San Venanzo, Italy your home away from home

Conveniently located just 38km from Perugia, San Venanzo is a small commune that offers an ideal base for exploring the unspoilt region of Umbria. San Venanzo lies in the heart of an area of south-west Umbria known as Orvieto, which is famous for its excellent local wines, centuries-old churches and unspoilt green landscape. Whether you stay for a week or just visit for a day, you are sure to be charmed by tiny San Venanzo.

Things to do in San Venanzo, Italy

San Venanzo is one of the top destinations for those seeking a relaxing break in one of Italy’s most rural regions. Self-caterers will be happy here as there are a decent selection of shops and small supermarkets in the village centre, all of which sell local favourites such as olive oils, cheeses, black truffles and wine. If you decide to head out for the evening you will find that local Orvieto wines are sold in almost every bar and restaurant, especially the dry, semi-sweet offering known as Orvieto Abboccato.

With fantastic weather to be enjoyed throughout the spring, summer and early autumn, many visitors to San Venanzo like to spend their daytimes outdoors. The local area is particularly good for walking, with densely wooded areas, rolling hills and olive groves characterizing the landscape. The village centre is also good for a walk, with many of its buildings dating back to the Middle Ages.

Once an agricultural area, San Venanzo has established itself in recent years as a local centre for handicrafts, and in particular terracotta production. This speciality is displayed in the local fairs and festivals, which are held throughout the year, but more regularly in summer months – making this a great time for a visit.

July (29C) and August (28C) have the highest average daily temperatures, but 20C plus temperatures can usually be enjoyed all the way from May to October. Though winter months are colder they are also some of the driest months in the calendar.

Perfect Italian country side house

4 of 5
The house holds every facility you can possibly need. The pool is absolutely marvellous. We (family with three kids, 2, 5 and 7 years of age) enjoyed it very much. The garden is spacious enough to do lots of other games once you want a break from swimming. The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful; green hill sides as far as you can see. The city of Orvieto is like walking through history, the way Italian cities can be. You definitely need a (rental) car. The only reason we did not rate 5 out of 5 is the mattrasses; they need replacement.

Country house

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in this rustic country house, it was very characteristic and well equipped. The bathrooms were small and the shower on the ground floor was better than on first floor. Amazing views and walks in the grounds. Susanna was a great host, she gave us enough food for our first meal, amazing olive oil from her trees and a wonderful chocolate cake. You do need a car and can then explore the beautiful towns and villages in the area.
