In the centre of Italy you'll find the charming region of Umbria. This beautiful area is the only landlocked region of Italy that does not border another country. While many tourists simply pass through Umbria on their travels between Venice and Rome, there's more than enough to see and do here to make your stay in Umbria holiday rentals well worth one's while. From the region's enchanting historical capital Perugia to the stunning view of Lake Trasimeno at sunset, there is plenty on offer when booking a private rental property in Umbria.
Discover the beautiful architecture of central Italy
Busting from its seams with sights to see, Umbria will keep architecture buffs and art fans entertained for months. Start in Assisi and visit the Basilica of San Francesco, stop over in Orvieto to see the Duomo di Orvieto in the Italian Gothic style, and finish at the fort of Narni which has recently been restored to its former glory. Food and wine lovers will be happy to know that Umbria is one of Italy's premier wine regions, with vineyards sprawling across the countryside. Winery tours are very popular here – pick up a few bottles, relax by the pool in your luxury holiday villa and enjoy.
