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.

Also well worth a visit is the hill town of Todi (28km), which is often promoted as the ‘world’s most liveable city’ and has a plethora of sites that date back to the Roman times.

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.

Wonderful hosts, thinking of everything, though without intruding on our wish to relax and to have a simple, quiet time. The apartment is stunningly situated, both apparently on top of the world, with all Umbria beneath it but also is a part of the little collection of fine medieval buildings of San Giovenale, as well as a stone's throw from everything we could wish for in the way of cafes, restaurants, specialist food shops, churches, palaces, museums, historic wells, caves and numerous other sights and views. We spent a week wandering this way and that and were always finding something new to interest us. The apartment itself is charming. It is a cool refuge from the heat of the sun, fully and thoughtfully equipped and we could have happily prepared our meals there but in fact chose only to drink wine and eat peaches from the market at home, preferring to be thoroughly lazy and to try out many of the very many fantastic eating places around the town. We had such a relaxing holiday. Thank you so much to our hosts!

With fabulous views all around, a lovely pool and the most delightful owners. The apartment has everything you could want and the area is stunning with so many wonderful places to visit. To sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down behind the hills is truly paradise! Thank you Carla and Franco.
