The farmhouse in the green heart of Umbria
“There are few places in a life, maybe even just one, where something happens; after which there are all the other places. ” Alice Munro
“A farm that goes beyond the classic canons, if you are really looking for peace of mind, isolation from noise and any temptation that can distract you from this goal, you must go. Enter the woods, follow the dirt road for a few kilometers, this location will open up before your eyes and you can only exclaim … wow! ”
“A place like this cannot and must not be found immediately, trivially after a bit of asphalt! It is a magical place and it must remain so. As in Avalon, as in the stories of woods and fairies, of wizards and stars. At the end of the road, your heart opens and you understand that thanks to that dirt road you can enjoy the beauty of such a clear place, in every sense ”

Umbria, land of history and nature
The meeting of different stories and cultures has always contributed to shaping the identity of Umbria. One of the smallest regions of Italy preserves the evident traces of its past intact. Holy Umbria, warrior Umbria, green Umbria: all adjectives that describe this land, but that on their own do not manage to enclose its multiple aspects.
Perugia and all other Umbrian cities manage to offer visitors a rich artistic and cultural heritage, immersed in a fascinating landscape. Perugia is a small jewel that slowly opens before the eyes of visitors. The Umbrian town holds artistic and monumental treasures that testify to its rich past and do justice to the cultural primacy of our country.
Assisi is one of the most visited cities in Umbria: San Francesco and Santa Chiara lived here, and these two figures make Assisi the main religious center of the region, a favorite destination for many pilgrims.
Gubbio: The limestone blocks with which Gubbio was built give the village the nickname of “gray city”: it is the oldest center of Umbria which has preserved its medieval appearance both in the buildings and in the streets.
Todi: Elegant medieval city, one of the most fascinating destinations in Umbria, stands austere and melancholic on the top of a hill overlooking the beautiful Tiber valley.
Orvieto and the tuff cliff on which it stands is a significant example of the harmonious integration between nature and human action. This splendid city is the favorite destination for those looking for quality tourism: Orvieto offers its visitors a rich historical, artistic, gastronomic and environmental heritage.
Terni was born in a wide plain where the Serra river and the Nera river meet. It is the classic example of a city open to accepting the challenges of the future, without denying its glorious past. Not far from the famous Cascata delle Marmore, one of the greatest spectacles that nature has.
And again Spoleto, Spello and San Benedetto are just some of the medieval villages to visit in this land so beautiful and fascinating.
