Discover Umbria & Tuscany
Casa San Carlo is situated right on the border of Umbria and Tuscany. Its location makes it a perfect holiday spot to enjoy the beauty of both regions!
In Italy, Umbria is the only region that is completely surrounded by other Italian regiosn. It is also know as ‘The green Heart of Italy’. Umbria has 1 million inhabitants and is admired for its hilly countryside with beautiful mideaval villages that are scattered all around, its cultural treasures and famous cities like Assisi and its rural and authentic atmosphere. And of course for its delicious food and wines.
Art & nature
Umbria is well-known for it a number of things: olive groves, vineyards, hecaters of woods and many rivers, but also for its fine art, beautiful architecture, castles and churches.
Visit the mideaval cities of Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Orvieto and Spoleto and be amazed by the works of art by famous artists like Giotto en Piero della Franscesca en de Umbrische schilder Pietro Vannucci (who was Rafaels teacher).
Cities & small towns
Casa San Carlo overlooks Umbria and Tuscany, so if you drive down our hill you literally cross the border from the one region into the other. This means that not only Umbria is there to be discovered by you, but also lovely Tuscan villages like Montepulciano and Pienza are only a short trip away. Even world famous Siena is only an hour drive from us, and a day trip to Florence is also possible (1,5 hour drive or 2 hour train trip). Be amazed by the Renaissance art or take bath in the hot water springs of the village of San Casciano dei Bagni or Chianciano Terme.
With Casa San Carlo as your comfortable home adress from where you can visit both regions, all of these cities and higlights are easy to reach by car. Naturally, we have visited them all ourselves, also with our daughters when they were still quite young. So we have lots of tips for you if you are in search for a nice restaurant or family-friendly ‘trattoria’!
