Gubbio Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Our family home has 3 apartments: The Owl sleeps up to 8 and the Rabbit is ideal for 4. La Casetta nestling in the vineyard is perfect for 2. We make organic wine from our vineyard which all our guests enjoy. Sociable circular pool with spectacular views over mountains and forests with plenty of comfortable sunbeds to relax on. Italian English owners, Luigi and Maria, can advise on family restaurants, places to visit and even show you how to make pasta!
Our home, Domus Nova, is near the lovely city of Gualdo Tadino, in the green heart of Umbria, home to one of the top 100 most beautiful castles in all of Italy. Assisi, Gubbio, Spello and Perugia are all within easy reach. Mountain walks with lovely views where you can even grill a few sausages on one of the stone barbeques found up there! Children can enjoy theme parks, cave visits and rafting close by. May & June see wonderful wild orchids and other wild flowers of rare beauty. September & October are ideal for sightseeing and walking. You will love our pool with amazing views over rolling hills and the majestic Appenine mountains. There are 2 pool terraces, one with an umbrella and one for sun-worshippers. We make our own wine from our terraced vineyard and everyone enjoys the homemade jams, chutneys and vinegar we provide too. A holiday at Domus Nova is good for families or groups of friends. Lots to do in the area but you can do as much or as little as you like! Luigi can teach you how to make pasta and the perfect sauce to go with it! Sometimes we all eat together. As each apartment has its own independent entrance and terrace there is no feeling of being on top of each other. Maria & Luigi are always on hand to give advice (from where to eat the best pizza to where to find free parking!) to help you enjoy your holiday to the full!

In fact, you can do as much or as little as you want! The beds all have new mattresses and everyone always comments on what a good night's sleep they have here. If you need anything, just ask! Air-conditioning is not needed as the house remains cool inside. There is also a cot and highchair available. If you come in winter, heating is available at extra cost. This is our home and we are always on hand to help in any way we can as regards walks, festivals, family restaurants, best places to park, mountain and grotto visits, etc. In each apartment there is a 'book' with useful information on places to visit and restaurants to try. We have drawn simple maps and photocopied them so you can take a copy with you when visiting the different places.
Umbria, the green heart of Italy, is justly famous for its olive oil, wine, ceramics and good value restaurants where you can enjoy simple tasty Umbrian cuisine. Bring walking shoes to discover the mountain areas with wild flowers and alpine strawberries. You'll need a jumper to visit the Frassasi caves which are world reknown for their stalagmite and stalagtite formations. Horse riding is just up the road and tennis courts 5 minutes away. There is every possible amenity (banks, ATMs, supermarkets, etc.) within easy reach of Domus Nova and on your arrival you will find homemade jam, vinegar, chutney and our biological wine waiting for you. The local market on Thursdays is a good place to find locally grown vegetables and fruit. Gualdo's historical centre is worth a look around with small family-run shops and its many museums including the castle Rocca Flea. In the evening, the main square is nice to visit maybe to listen to a concert, enjoy an aperitif or eat an ice cream. Tap water is drinkable coming straight off the mountains.
