Holiday Home: "Il Palazzetto", GUBBIO, Perugia
Holidays in Umbria "The Green Heart Of Italy" to discover the artistic treasuhres, oenogastronomic products and the natural beauty of Gubbio
The architecture of Gubbio represents, perhaps, the masterpiece of the medieval period and of the 13th-14th centuries: intact towers, facades of houses blackened from the centuries, gothic churches and palaces that symbolise the power of this medieval city-state.
"The Palazzetto" is situated in the hills surrounding Gubbio, 8 Km from the village of Padule. You can reach it following a smooth country road, through over 2000 hectares of woodland and pasture. The farm, of 36 hectares, has recently been reforrested and converted to the production of woodland foods such as mushrooms, white truffles and scorzone truffles.
The residence is placed in the "Casa Colonica". This farm house is thought to date from the end of the eightheenth century, although, through the ages it has undergone various renovations, the last of which was in 1993. This saw its conversion into 5 independent apartments complete with bathrooms, autonomous central heating, and functional furnishings, which together can accomodate 15+4 guests.

The house was built using local stone, which lends it a rustic, yet noble air. It looks out over the wonderful valley of the Chiascio river and the Natural Park of Monte Cucco. All of this enables you to taste the simple life in contact with Nature; excursions on foot, by mountain-bike or on horse back. At the "Palazzetto" guests can enjoy the pool, a children's play area and an established country walk. In addition possibility to organize on request:

Gubbio has a rich cultural life.
