UMBRIAN BLISS

  • 5 out of 5
This beautiful Umbrian country home can be described as nothing less than idyllic. A friend and I were looking for an escape from the intense summer heat and humidity in Venice and were lucky enough to spend a glorious long weekend here.

Yes it is a farmhouse in the sense that it is on a small holding and surrounded by quaint farms but the interior decor and quality of the facilities elevates this farmhouse to a luxury retreat, all the while maintaining that sense of homely comfort which ensures maximum relaxation in a stunning setting.
Points of interest such as Orvieto and the Umbrian winelands are easily accessible and the swimming pool was a very welcome addition during the long summer days.
We had as much fun exploring the countryside as we did relaxing and reading in the garden, cooking up Italian feasts in the great kitchen and enjoying the late sunsets from the upstairs balcony.

Umbria is far less "touched" by the herds of foreigners that move through Tuscany so if it is a quiet authentic Italian break you're looking for, look no further. I will be back and I have recommended this property to a number of friends.

Corgneda is located in southern Umbria, central Italy in the countryside between Narni and Capitone. Narni is the centre most point of the Italian peninsular and is a beautiful, ancient, off-the-main-tourist-route hilltop village, steeped in history and culture. There are many good supermarkets, butchers, bakeries, delis, restaurants and other shops in Narni Scalo and other nearby villages and excellent shopping in Terni, about 15 km away. The ancient towns of Todi, Amelia, San Gemini, as well as mountains, waterfalls (Cascade delle Marmore) and lakes are close by. Further afield are Assisi, Perugia, Siena, Gubbio, Citta di Castello, the wine lands of Orvieto, Montepulciano, Spoleto, Montefalco and the “Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso dei Monti Sibillini” in the Sibilline mountains with its wild horses. Florence and Rome are 1 -2 hours away by car or train. Umbria is well known for its food, most famously truffles (Norcia), pork, olive oil, wine and “home cooking” cuisine.
