A little piece of heaven in Umbria


Villa Sabbioni is a wonderful rustic retreat deep in the Umbrian countryside.
The two apartments are furnished with antique furniture and colourful linens and the views are to die for. I took a trip there two weeks ago as the owner had asked if I could advertise his house on our site. As well as producing their own olive oil on site they also have their own bees for breakfast honey! Take a look at some pictures of this little gem on our website.
This is the season of mellow fruitfulness and the Sagra della Castagna, and fruits of the forest festivals abound. The colours of the tress and hedgerows are just magnificent. This is a wonderful time of the year to be in Italy.
