Umbria vacation rentals

Make an Umbria villa rental or vacation rental your home away from home in this enchanting region of Italy, known for its sun-washed hills, covered with vineyards and olive trees, and picturesque hill towns, crafted from stone.

Umbria, located in central Italy, is much like Tuscany but has fewer tourists. This region has an abundance of vacation rental homes, including many "fattorie" (villas and apartments located on farms or in rural areas.) From your Umbria vacation rental or villa rental, you can explore the countryside of rural Umbria, take in the delights of smaller hill towns like Panicale and Gioiella, or visit cities filled with fabulous architecture and art treasures.

The well-preserved medieval town of Perugia, on the Tiber River, is the provincial capital and the largest city in Umbria. Guests of Perugia villas and vacation rentals can visit the Duomo (cathedral), the National Gallery of Umbria, with its masterpieces of Gothic painting, and the National Archaeologic Museum of Umbria, with its impressive Etruscan collection. Near Perugia, visitors can see the Ipogeo del Volumni, an Etruscan tomb.

The nearby hill town of Todi is built around the beautiful Piazza del Popolo. Guests of Todi vacation rentals or villa rentals can visit the Temple of S. Fortunato to see 14th century frescos and the crypt of the town's namesake, Jacopone da Todi.

In Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis, visit the Basilica di San Francesco to marvel at Giotto's 28 frescoes depicting the life of this important saint. Other highlights for guests of Assisi vacation rentals include the Pinacoteca Civica and the Cathedral Museum.

Orvieto, once an Etruscan stronghold, is known today for its white wines and locally-made ceramics. The impressive Duomo features frescos by Signorelli and marble pillars carved with biblical scenes.

Guests of Spoleto vacation rentals can visit a 1st century Roman theatre, the 4th century Christian Church of San Salvatore, the Gallery of Contemporary Art, and the impressive Rocca Albornoziana castle.
