Where we are
Borgo Poggiolo (‘the farmhouse on the little hill’) is a fantastic, restored farmhouse set in the Umbrian countryside 460 m above sea level between Orvieto and Perugia. About 15 years ago it was converted into a comfortable country house, lovingly restored with great respect for local traditional architecture. The house is perfectly positioned midway between Rome and Florence, near to the border with Tuscany. If you like the arts, nature and genuine home-made cuisine and are looking for a wonderful place to relax, you will feel perfectly at home here! Furthermore, we are closely situated to the best wine and olive oil routes in Umbria and Tuscany.
Surrounding less then 20 km
The nearest village is Pornello, panoramic views of which can be seen from Borgo Poggiolo.
During the winter only three people live there and the village has a real feel of times past. The village of San Venanzo (10 km away) is full of character and has shops, cafes as well as a volcanological park and museum. The small town of Marsciano is 20 km away and has lots of supermarkets and, on Mondays, has a typical regional market. The delightful hilltop towns of Montegiove, Montegabbione and Monteleone also need to be visited.
Close to Montegiove are the gardens of "La Scarzuola", a Franciscan convent founded by St. Francis of Assisi in 1218, but acquired by the Milanese architect, Tomaso Buzzi, in 1956. La Scarzuola now boasts stunning gardens and an outdoor theatre complex ('The Ideal City'), which has to been seen to be believed! We can organize a guided tour in English.
We can advise you also very good local restaurants.
