L’ARIETE – Countryhouse in Umbria
Italianissimo: Rennaissance cities, gentle hills, olive groves, vineyards
Umbria – green heart of Italy, just a stonesthrow away from Tuscany & from ancient times on meltingpot of cultures, peoples, brilliant thinkers and artists. The result: masterpieces of art and architecture, medieval and renaissance cities on each corner of Umbria – Perugia, Assisi, Arezzo, Orvieto, Gubbio, Spoleto, to name just a few – surrounded by unspoilt nature.
Umbria is the “hidden Tuscany” and offers the chance to enjoy Italy, itas art and culture off the beaten track and away from the masses.
L’ARIETE is located just below the medieval village of Montone, voted one of Italy´s most beautiful places, and within easy reach of all those famous and wonderful places, at the same time surrounded by that lovely gentle Italian landscape, we all long for (click here for a view on google map)
