In Southern Umbria — through the Umbrian Vale, the Valnerina, the highland plains and the Sibillini Mountains —, water has been the timeless weaver of the fabric of life, with the rivers of the region shaping the landscape and influencing the inhabitants’ lives.
Southern Umbria is a region where magic and reality still dance hand in hand in hazy valleys, along the contours of terraced hills, through flower-filled highland plains and up the slopes of rugged mountains.
The legends of dragons, fairies, sibyls and old tales of wisdom live on here in the words, gazes and gestures of the locals. The people of Valle Umbria cling to their land like old oaks. They’re firmly rooted in the past, like the mountains, but with their dreams flowing on like the river.
Our history is written in stone and carved onto the landscape, the results of millennia of faith, hard labour, endurance and skill. And the people who live here today use their passion and dreams to ensure the future for generations to come.
The real magic of our land lies in the balance between nature and humankind. Come and experience our little blue-green paradise.
