Surroundings & Photos

ITALY IS BREATHTAKING, that certainly applies to Umbria and Tuscany.

Again and again you are treated to beautiful panoramic views. Other attractions are: a visit to the famous Assisi, beautifully situated against the slope, the university city of Perugia, the traditional Gubbio or the beautiful lake Trasimeno with its three islands.

Umbria's tourism is in development. Agriculture, craft work, traditional folk festivals and music on local “piazza’s” are a daily occurrence. Your holiday is made unforgettable thanks to the hospitality, the surroundings and the people of Umbria and Tuscany. Culinary you are in the right place in Umbria. The kitchen is simple, but tasteful, unique and above all very pure.
In Spring the hills and mountains of Umbria are coloured by wild flowers and the yellow broom. The water of the Lago di Trasimeno has every day and every moment an other colour.
In Summer you can enjoy the view of fields of sunflowers.
In Autumn the mushrooms such as “funghi porcini”. Even the Winter is spectacular.
The best time to enjoy Umbria is from April to October when you will be warmed by the Umbrian Sun.
