For many, France’s southeastern region of Provence conjures the idyllic landscapes of lavender and sunflower fields, chateaux amongst sprawling vineyards, bustling markets with fresh loaves of bread, and cheeses, enchanting hilltop villages, and culinary sensations. It is the rural French country living we admire and are inspired by.

Destination Overview

Situated in the center of Italy and the only region in Italy that does not border another country or the sea, Umbria is often referred to as “The Green Heart of Italy.” It is renowned for its wine and olive oil production, a wealth of medieval villages and castles, and lush landscapes filled with fields of sunflowers and grapes. Given its historic riches and natural beauty, it is unimaginable that Umbria would still be considered a “hidden gem.” But what a gem it is!

Umbria is the epitome of Italy’s ‘old-world’ charm. Centuries-old traditions and a humble way of life are still the norms here. Medieval towers of walled towns can be seen in every direction; cobblestone streets lined with flower-laced brick homes lead to lively piazzas, enotecas serve up family recipes, and colorful weekly markets are still social occasions.
