True Umbria - Cooking at Your Villa

We are very proud to offer to our guests an “authentic Italian country holiday”, and food and wine are certainly a big part of it. We have selected the best producers in the region, and the ingredients we use come exclusively from there: Animals are breed in the wild and vegetables, olive oil and wine are produced respecting old traditions. We hope that during your stay there will be plenty of opportunities to taste these organic products.

Here are some of our favourite menus of traditional italian cuisine. Specialities are available according to the season. If you have any special request, please let us know. Most menus have a first antipasto course, followed by the entree, a second course, then a side course, ending with dessert, tea and coffee.
