Casa Vacanze Greppo
R o t e c a s t e l l o - S a n V e n a n z o, U m b r i a - I t a l y
Holiday rentals, in Italy, vacation home.


"Casa Greppo" is a beautiful stone country house on a hill, 450 mt high, by San Venanzo, in the most traditional and least known Umbria, halfway between Todi and Orvieto. Greppo is part of "Podere Greppo" farm, 20 hectares (= 50 acres) of land, among olive trees, woods and fields of wheat and sunflower, in a dominating position from which you enjoy a wonderful landscape. In the foreground "Rotecastello", medieval treasure with its sighting tower. Right round hills, valleys, multicolour fields and a lot of other small medieval villages, absolutely out of traditional tours.

Let's talk, e.g., about Civitella dei Conti, a little village on the top of a hill that has got traces of a fortification, or about other small villages such as: Collelungo, Poggio Aquilone which gives the opportunity to make an excursion along the stream Fersinone, Montecastello di Vibio, little treasure seat of international summer stages of art and seat of the smallest and most active theatre in the world, Teatro della Concordia.
You can also see Todi or the nature and fluvial park of Tevere river, or other parks like Trasimeno lake or the Piano di Colfiorito.
But if you want go off you can reach and visit Tuscany over a single day: Arezzo, e.g., is just 100 km far, or Rom, just 150 km fard. All this makes Greppo be an ideal starting point to visit the most fascinating places of centre Italy.

This kind of life, observed from above, from these valleys and little villages, seems to go by slowly and quietly, but if you want to reach those places, you suddenly realize that there is a lot of vitality everywhere. A lot of activities take place all through the year in the field of culture, of tradition and of tourism; international meetings, such as: the Spoleto Festival, the Todi Arte Festival, Festival delle Nazioni in Città di Castello, Umbria Jazz, common festivals animated by concerts, fairs and dances, where you can find the variety of the local cookery, with tasting of wild boar or truffle dishes, salami and all kind of barbeque, plays with historical local representations, costume dramas, local fairs which you can periodically visit in the old town centres of Perugia, Arezzo, Todi, Spoleto, etc. Link to Umbria Tourist office


Available short path (400 meters) and long path (1500 meters) that goes across the fields all around the house, for walks, trainings, MTB.
...for your children: You can also go to La Città della Domenica: a wonderful park near Perugia, where you will find for a very famous reptile house. ..but if your children like to stay at home, these are some toys to play...
