We based ourselves in this part of Umbria because we found a wonderful place to stay. It was an old converted cowshed, originally built in the 13th Century and lovingly renovated and restored. From our house we explored the Umbrian countryside, the town of Perugia and the wine and food of the region. We also spent a lot of time at home, playing in our garden and running amongst the olive trees. The best part was our awesome host! She shared her house and her love of the area, and gave us an insiders view of life in Italy, including a private tour of the Lungarotti winery. It was a great week with new and old friends.
