A holiday villa or apartment in Umbria is just what the doctor ordered

Located in central Italy, Umbria is a magical area that abounds in history, culture, and natural beauty. Characterised by rolling hills, vibrant valleys, and peaceful plains, Umbria is a great option when it comes time to book your next holiday villa or apartment. What's more, Umbria's central location in Italy makes it a great starting point for trips to surrounding regions, such as Tuscany and Rome.

Something comfortable in Umbria, Italy for every taste

No matter what type of accommodations you are looking for, HomeAway is sure to have something to suit your needs, giving you a viable alternative to booking hotels during your trip to Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Spoleto, or many other points of interest in the Umbria region. From spacious villas with picturesque views and pools that are fun for the entire family to romantic apartments with excellent views of the city that are ideal for couples and everything in between, our villas come with the amenities you expect at a price you can afford. What's more, with villas and apartments spread throughout Italy's Umbria region, you can plan ahead by locating accommodations closest to the things you most want to see and do during your next trip to Italy—even if that includes visiting neighbouring regions such as Tuscany or Marche.

Much to see and do in and around Perugia, the capital of Umbria

Though Umbria is notably the only Italian region that does not border on the sea, it is nevertheless an idyllic destination for those seeking fun in the sun and the water. Lake Trasimeno is the largest lake in Italy and is the perfect spot for those who enjoy the peace and quiet that corresponds to an afternoon spent fishing. History and architecture fans also have a lot to take in at Lake Trasimeno: the lake boasts several castles in various states of repair. Some are surrounded by small villages, while others are isolated and have fallen into ruins.

Options include:

- Castello del Leone in Castiglione del Lago. Built by Emperor Frederick II, the castle was finished in the mid-1200s and used to hold dominance over the area surrounding Lake Trasimeno. It has withstood many assaults over the centuries, and today is a memorable place to visit—especially when one considers the majestic view it offers. Castiglione del Lago is a small village brimming with culture. In addition to the castle, the town has several other places of interest, including the ducal palace, town hall, and Santa Maria Maddalena, a church that includes a panel painted by Eusebio da San Giorgio towards the end of the 16thcentury.

- Guglielmi castle on Isola Maggiore. The castle was built on the island in 1880. Since then it was not well maintained and thus was badly in need of repairs. It is currently being transformed into a luxury spa and resort for those seeking relaxation when they travel to Umbria. In addition to the castle, the island is noteworthy because it is the only inhabited island in Lake Trasimeno. Most of the buildings on the island date back to the 14thcentury, when a Franciscan monastery was built. The famous St. Francis of Assis is known to have lived on the island in the early 13thcentury, adding to the islands historic appeal.

- The Vernazzano leaning tower. Like the leaning tower of Pisa, this tower is known for its tilt. The tower is the only remnant of an old castle, and the entire area has a fascinating history. At one point the town moved away from the tower because the area was strategically useful but not very conducive to living. Thus, only the tower remains to attest to the multifaceted history that unfolded here—and even that must be held up with steel cables to keep it from tumbling down.

Majestic waterfalls and beautiful landscapes in Umbria

In addition to Lake Trasimeno, those who book holiday villas and apartments in Umbria can take advantage of another aqueous wonder: the Cascate delle Marmore, or Marmore's Falls. The waterfalls themselves are stunning to behold, as are the valleys, rivers and hills that surround the falls. They are not far from the city of Terni, in southeast Umbria, and Terni is in turn a mere 104 kilometres away from Rome, making Terni a great place to book a villa if you want to stay on the countryside while being within striking distance of one of the world's most vibrant urban centres. In addition to Marmore's Falls, visitors to Terni should see a few other points of interest:

- Though now in ruins, Carsulae is an important archaeological site that gives much insight into how life was during Roman times. Once a prosperous trading hub, the ruins tell an interesting tale everywhere you look. Whether you just want to go for a long hike or delve into the site's rich history and fascinating ruins, Carsulae is a must see for those who book a villa in the Terni province of Umbria.

- The Dunarobba Fossil Forest. Though there are other petrified forests, what is unique about this particular petrified forest is that the trees remained intact and upright during the fossilization process. The trees here are more than 2 million years old, making this a very important scientific discovery and a fantastic way to travel back in time while enjoying the warm Umbrian sun with your friends and family.

The spiritual side of Umbria

Several villas and apartments are located in and around Assisi, one of Umbria's and Italy's most important cities in terms of its spiritual significance: it was here that St. Francis of Assisi was born and ultimately laid to rest after a lifetime dedicated to his spiritual beliefs and to helping those in need. Assisi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and boasts many thrilling sites, including:

- The Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi. The basilica is comprised of an upper and a lower church and is stunning to behold. The lower church contains frescos down by Cimabue and Giotto in the late-medieval period, while the upper church contains frescos dedicated to the life of Saint Francis.

- The Basilica of Santa Chiara, or Saint Claire, who was instrumental in the founding of the Poor Sisters. The Gothic interior is breathtaking, and the basilica houses many frescos depicting the life of the saint as well as her tomb.

- Two medieval castles, one built in a grandiose manner meant to intimidate the townsfolk, the other built in the Roman era.

- A Roman amphitheatre that is of historical significance and which is now the site of a lovely garden.

Natural and manmade beauty throughout Umbria

The Umbrian region has several other sites of interest, ranging from quaint towns with historical buildings to natural landscapes that will leave you speechless. Some of the most notable sites in Umbria include:

- Orvieto, located in Terni, was once the domicile of the popes, and thus appropriately stunning and awe-inspiring. Orvieto is also known for its underground city, and today tourists who visit Orvieto can take guided tours of the labryntine tunnels that traverse beneath the city. Wine lovers will also be pleasantly surprised by the renowned wine produced in Orvieto.

- Spoleto is the perfect place to find a holiday villa or apartment if you are keen on exploring the region's Roman history as well as its medieval history. Spoleto is also known for a summer festival held each year called Festival dei due Mondi, or Festival of two worlds. Each year, dancers, opera singers, and stage actors entertain visitors who travel to this part of Umbria from all over the world.

Forego looking for hotels and search instead for a holiday villa or apartment in the Umbria region. Having your own holiday home makes your stay in Umbria more personal and intimate with your family and loved ones, giving you access to picturesque views, cool pools, history, culture, and, of course, delicious Italian cuisine at the best price available. No matter what time of year you plan to visit the Umbrian region of central Italy, HomeAway has several holiday villas and apartments that are sure to offer the best way of enjoying your time away from the stress of daily life.

You can either pick one part of Umbria to explore, or spend your time exploring the entire region, taking trips to Spoleto, Orvieto, Assisi, the various castles and churches that dot the region—a great way to learn and see new things, particularly if it is your first time in Umbria. But whether you want a more relaxed trip in one place or a more exciting trip that takes you to each corner of Umbria, knowing you'll be resting your head in the comfort of your own home makes it easier to focus on all the fun to be had.

What's more, the central location of Umbria makes it an ideal choice for those who want to see as much of Italy as possible. Rome is just a short drive or train ride away from Umbria, and the region also borders on Tuscany, another beloved Italian region. No matter where your interests lie and what you want to see when you travel to Italy, booking a holiday villa or holiday home in Umbria is the best first step toward a holiday you will remember for the rest of your life.

Driving off the road and down a track, the house sits in extensive gardens. They were still very pretty, even though we'd missed the best of Carla's many roses. The views go on and on, with the nearest house being about a quarter of a mile away, so the seclusion and privacy adds to the peace and quiet of this lovely holiday home. Carla and Franco departed the next morning and we were trusted to be the keepers of their property for our week's stay. The annex is very homely and comfortable, with everything you could need. Beautifully renovated, we have had a really relaxing time, and would love to return when the weather is a little warmer, so we could enjoy the gardens more than we were able on this occasion. Our hosts returned to wave us goodbye, and we enjoyed a morning coffee in their lovely farmhouse kitchen with them, and the lovely lady who looks after the annex, before we left. Wonderful hosts, a truly idyllic location, and a perfect holiday home. Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday.

On arrival we found bread, butter, coffee etc. had been provided and fresh flowers in the hallway. A great start and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unspoilt and, in September, fairly 'untouristy' part of Tuscany. The villa was quiet and well located for visiting Tuscany, Umbria and beyond. The photographs were a faithful representation of the charming and very well maintained house, pool and gardens. The quality of the kitchen equipment including washing machine/dishwasher was excellent. Notably the provision of all those things that one generally forgets or hopes not to have to buy on holiday, such as loo paper, cleaning materials, bin bags etc. was exceptionally generous. A small point but it sums up the very positive approach of the owners to ensure that their guests have an enjoyable and relaxing stay. They were not at all intrusive but could not have been more helpful or friendly even offering us fresh produce from their garden. This is one of the best properties that we have leased whether in the UK or elsewhere; we very much hope to have the opportunity to return.
