NEW!  Photo Gallery - Views of Umbria

Umbria is a region of Central Italy, bordered by Tuscany to the west, the Marche to the east and Lazio to the south. This region is mostly hilly or mountainous. Its relief is dominated by the Apennines to the east accounting for the highest point in the region at the summit of Monte Vettore on the border of the Marche (2476 m =  8123 ft) and the Tiber valley basin, accounting for the lowest point at Attigliano (96 m = 315 ft).

The region is named for the Umbri tribe, who settled in the region in protohistoric times (6th century BC): 672 BC is the legendary date of foundation of the town of Terni (Interamna). Their language was Umbrian, a relative of Latin and Oscan.

Charming villa near Assisi (Ref: 3402) Self catering villa in Rivotorto di Assisi, Italy
An elegant stone farmhouse, in the untouched heart of Valle Umbra, Villa Rosy is located in the midst of a nine hectare olive grove on the gentle hills of Mount Subasio. Only 3 km from Assisi, the estate enjoys splendid views over the valley with the towns of Perugia and Montefalco in the distance. In this rich sunny countryside, which is the cradle of great wines and excellent extra virgin olive oil, everything leads our guests to taste the joy of life whether it be laying in the shade of an ancient oak or in a romantic arbour, strolling around the villa enjoying the perfume of rosemary and lavender or gliding silently in the sky at the paragliding school 800m away from the villa. The original structure has been divided into two apartments furnished and equipped to a high standard with a mixture of modern and antique furniture: Mimosa and Magnolia.  And the views over the plain below is astonishing.
