We are located in the historic center of Umbertide in the upper Tiber valley in Umbria, Italy. Umbertide (pronounced Um-BER-tee-day) has a population of 15,000 and everything you would need is within walking distance. We can pick you up at the train station in a nearby town. We have a train in our town which runs during the day on a limited basis to limited destinations. We cannot leave our car as we need it to get to the airport. It may be best for you to rent a car if you plan to visit the far away sites. Otherwise car not needed.
We are within driving distance of Assisi, Spoleto, Todi, Gubbio, Perugia, Orvietto (within an hour). Our little, local train goes to Perugia-Ponte S. Giovani and Citta di Castello.
Our apartment is on the 3rd floor (European) (no elevator) with a view of the main Piazza out the front window and the Tiber River from the back windows. 2 bedrooms, two baths, office, wifi, Skye TV, modern kitchen. There are 10-15 restaurants within walking distance. The town has numerous festivals in the summer.
We have two healthy cats, Rocky and Simba who are our "children" so we need to feel comfortable that you will dote on them as we do. They do not go outside. They are not used to children so we will not accept tenders with kids. They just need feeding, litter box duties and attention. They love to be played with, especially Simba. We would also need limited plant care on our terrace (watering, deadheading).
