Umbria Private Properties

Good hotels in Umbria are not as plentiful as they are over in Tuscany. But the villas we rent are often better than some of the most luxurious five-star hotels in all Italy.

A private estate just outside Umbertide has been impeccably restored and the villas and farmhouses are of a quality unrivalled in Tuscany. Elsewhere, the enchanting town of Spello is home to a marvellous little villa and adjoining cottage that looks out over the Umbrian valley yet is accessed via a little cobbled lane, just off the main piazza. There is nowhere better for a taste of local life that thrives throughout the cold winter, unlike in some of the more touristy villages of Tuscany.
