FARMHOUSE AND AGRITOURISM IN UMBRIA
This region is frequently referred to as the “Green heart of Italy,” which is a fitting name considering the characteristics of the area. Located at the centre of the peninsula without outlets to the sea, it is mainly a hilly territory with an exuberant and charming dose of nature. Just like Tuscany, Umbria has a long-standing consolidated agritourism tradition thanks to the warm reception, the beauty and charm of the facilities surrounded by beautiful landscapes. Few areas are able to offer spiritual involvement, artistic testimony and environmental elegance blended as harmonically as they are here. Visitors cannot help being overcome by emotion and touched by the human and cultural values that Umbria represents.
