The tranquillity and well-being that the villa offers are in close dialogue with the variety and beauty of the surrounding area, where the nature and culture have the richness that has made Umbria famous in every corner of the world.

From the immediate vicinity of Villa Pian del Rocchio to places slightly further afield but still easily reached, are locations unique for their history and beauty like Gubbio or Assisi, surprising pearls like "the world's smallest theatre" at Montecastello, splendid Medieval cities like Todi, Foligno, Bevagna, Montefalco, Orvieto and of course Perugia.

In all these places, the history and nature of the green heart of Italy may be enjoyed with the flavours of a land whose culinary tradition and fine wines are another major source of pleasure for those who visit.

The villa can be even the focal point for places like Siena, Florence or Rome, all cities no more than two hours away by car.

The region's varied and rich cultural offerings include such highly prestigious yearly musical events as Umbria Jazz, or important musical and theatrical performances like Festival delle Nazioni at CittÓ di Castello and Spoleto's Festival dei due Mondi.
