Our guests tell us that often the reality of a place fails to live up to the expectations inspired by it's photographs. We are frequently told on the other hand, that our photographs fail to portray the full beauty of this place. Obviously I need to improve my photography!
These are a selection of some recent photos:
Travel within Italy and the EU looks like it will be free and easy this Summer thanks to the coming introduction of the EU Digital COVID Certificate - available from July 1st
The situation in Umbria and Italy is now well under control, with low case numbers and an effective vaccination campaign underway. We look forward to welcoming visitors with the EU certificate for a safe and relaxing time with us.
In 2020 the situation eased up enough to permit travel and we ended up being overwhelmed with demand from people from all over Europe. For the first time we were visited by many families with small children, all of whom enjoyed being here almost as much as we enjoyed hosting them!
We are now fully booked except for a brief period from September 4th. Be quick if you want to book a late holiday as we aren't expecting the vacancy to last for long!
Check the calendar here.
Take care and hope to see you soon.
Sorry. Now fully booked again this Summer.
Just a few days left from September 4th for that perfect late break..
We have had a Covid related cancellation and there is now a vacancy from August 28th until mid-September..

Some reactions from our guests
"When a holiday is so good you book to come back next year before you've left...." Tim & Ruth August 2017.
"So glad we decided to book and find out for ourselves what Wild Umbria had to offer. We discovered it was even better than described on this site and we left feeling we have made new friends"

"This place is so amazingly relaxing... The Wi-Fi is better than ours at home and the night sky has been so lovely to gaze on from the pool as we have taken our late night swims."

"We absolutely loved our stay at Wild Umbria for our honeymoon adventure in September! Such a beautiful and tranquil place with just the noise of crickets! We hope to return one day :) "
