Gualdo Tadino, Perugia

This will suit unfussy souls who adore being immersed in nature. You’re miles from any town in the hills of Umbria where country roads wind through agricultural land and dense woods then a bumpy strada bianca takes you down to Alan and Lucia’s remote ivy and wisteria-covered home, one end of which has been converted, very simply. You walk straight in to the compact living room with its pale stone walls, old leather sofa and wood-burner for chilly evenings; a bright country kitchen is at the far end with a wide sink at the window and curtained cupboards underneath. There’s a small bathroom down here too with a large walk-in shower. Up untreated, rustic wooden stairs to a double room and a pretty en suite with a wrought iron bed and three small windows. It’s utterly unpretentious and with no frills, so won’t suit style seekers, but this is paradise for serious mountain walkers, birdwatchers and peace-seekers. You’ll find a bottle of wine, veg from the garden and a loaf of homemade bread waiting for you. Alastair would love it here!

We had a fabulous time at Wild Umbria. It is so quiet and relaxing. The pool is amazing, and our hosts went beyond the call of duty to make us welcome. It is very well situated for visits to Assissi, Gubbio and Lake Trasimeno, but you may prefer to while away your stay by the pool enjoying the beautiful surroundings

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Alan Holpin

  • An oasis of silence and calm. You'll be disturbed only by the myriad sounds of birds and insects and the occasional barking of deer and scurrying of wild boar and porcupine. Perfect for writers and artists seeking solitude. Admire our dark skies.
  • Relax on your private terrace, or why not take a walk up through the woods to your private secluded pool with wi-fi? Both with glorious views down into the valley below and overlooked only by the distant hilltop 10th century castle.
  • Lovers of historic towns are spoilt for choice with Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto, Orvieto and Perugia all a short drive away. All the other glories of medieval central Italy are within easy reach. https://www.umbriatourism.it/en/web/umbria/things-to-see-and-do
  • Summer is Festa time! Every town and village has it's own festa of which the locals are extremely proud. Most notable are perhaps the 'festa dei Ceri' every 15th May in Gubbio, the local 'Festa del fuoco' on midsummer's eve, and the 'infiorata' at Spello.
  • The wild Apennine mountains are on our doorstep and offer endless mountaintop walks perfect for nature-lovers, walkers, and photographers. https://www.umbriatourism.it/en/hiking
  • Music lovers should not miss the annual festa of music that is Umbria Jazz. Held every year in July with a host of outdoor concerts, free and otherwise. Also Trasimeno Blues.
