You won’t miss anything. We are in the exact center of Italy: Umbria is the only Italian region who does not have limits with other countries or the sea: that is why we call it
“the heart of Italy”.

Your Italian “casa”

  • the-villa-italian-casa

    Strategically placed
    at the heart of everything

    We are just outside Porano, in the Umbria region.

    Umbria is the only Italian region who does not have limits with other countries or the sea: that is why we call it “the heart of Italy”. You can find the country at its best: beautiful lakes, rivers (did you know the river you find in Rome, the Tevere, starts here?), hills full of olive trees and vines, huge mountains, and around 10% of Italy’s most beautiful historic villages.


You can discover our amazing territory even by train: the New York Times has three suggestions for your daily trips.

Perfect Italian break


Charming, picture-perfect towns

Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi. But also Civita di Bagnoregio, Siena, Firenze, Roma.

All this wonderful spots are in close range from the Villa: you can sip a cappuccino in the amazing Piazza del Campo in Siena in the morning and have an aperitivo in Firenze, looking at the Arno river.

You can enjoy the Dolce Vita in Roma or heal yourself with the amazing art masterpieces of churches and palaces in Orvieto and Assisi.

We, and our land, offer you no compromises.


And, of course, the food

Umbria is famous for its extra virgin olive oil, its wines, and its truffles.

But don’t miss chocolate in Perugia, very close to the Villa, or a proper meat experience throughout the region up to Firenze and Siena.

Live like locals enjoying full meals, aperitivo, and an absolute astonishing experience of the Mediterranean diet, inscribed into the Immaterial Unesco World Heritage List.
