“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, multicolored 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 center Italy.
