We’re in Umbria, at only 6 km from the border with Tuscany.
Life in Umbria is very relaxed, people are genuine and traffic is almost zero. Plus, it’s usually cheaper than Tuscany.
If you’ll go around you’ll have plenty of choices of beautiful medieval towns to visit, great-affordable restaurants, wineries to tour and really stunning landscapes.
Umbria is definitely less-packed with tourists than Tuscany, but since “Tuscany is Tuscany”, you can decide to visit some of the major towns at few kilometres from us. Being on the borders we have Cortona at only 30 min or Siena at 45 min.
The closest highway is 15 km (around 18 minutes) from us.
We’re hilltop, once you leave the highway there’s an asphalt-hill road, with beautiful views, that comes up to our place. Usually it takes 20 minutes.

Plus. The Perugia airport has a strong connection with the Rome Fiumicino airport, with 3 flights per day. So, if you’re flying from another airport (not in the Ryanair flights’ list above) you can check if there’s the chance to fly to Rome first and then to Perugia.
