Montepetriolo is a tiny rural hamlet that conjures thoughts of rustic Italy from long ago. Essentially a handful of close-knit houses, this atmospheric village consists of just a few cobbled roads and offers postcard-perfect panoramas of the Umbrian countryside. The surroundings are ripe for exploration, with plenty of towns and villages within easy reach.
Five minutes away is the pretty hilltop village of Castiglione della Valle, a scenic tangle of medieval architecture crowned by an ancient castle fortress. The region’s capital, Perugia, can be reached in just 30 minutes, and offers plenty to see and do, including numerous museums and churches.
