Umbria Villas in Orvieto and Assisi
Known as Tuscany's quiet sister, this remarkable central Italian region is home to many cultural resources-wine making in Montefalco, Torgiano and Orvieto, sightseeing in the great cathedral city of Assisi (a World Heritage site) and the music of the world-renown Umbria Jazz Festival.
Umbria is truly "Italy's Green Heart," a pastoral blend of lush green hills, enchanting forests and fields of sunflowers. Hoping to stroll the fresh outdoor markets? You'll be greeted by giant legs of prosciutto, aromatic cheeses, and the scent of truffles. Visit the 14th century Duomo, or the Basilica Assisi, where you will find the walls still alive with medieval fresco paintings.
Looking to have a bit of sun and water? Head to Lake Trasimeno, where you can sail (or take a sailing lesson) or paddle a kayak for the day. The more ambitious might enjoy a hike up Mount Tezzio.
Many of our exceptional villa rentals in Umbria include authentic farmhouses in rural locales, carefully restored by their owners and tailored to private holidays and vacations for couples, families, or groups. All of our Umbria hotels have pools, ideal for enjoying the soft sun and the views of fields, quilted in red poppies and purple irises. Some enjoy staying close to towns like Todi, with access to shops and restaurants, while golfers may prefer to stay closer to the Antognolla Golf Club.
Generally, our Umbria villas are large, offering ample rooms for families or groups of friends spending a summer week together. With so much to view in this area-medieval ruins, museums, and premium vineyards, wherever you stay you will often never be more than one hour from another historic area.
WIMCO Villas features two of the finest Umbria hotels: Relais Ducale in the Umbrian hilltop town of Gubbio and Hotel San Luca in Spoleto.
