A FAMILY HOLIDAY WITH HOMELY ATMOSPHERE
La Torriola is the perfect place for families with children of all ages.
Children can play in complete safety in the meadows surrounding the house. Day by day they can discover a friendly and welcoming nature with its colours, perfumes and little surprises.
The teenagers can enjoy the swimming pool, games room with table-tennis and table football, and there is plenty of space outside to let off steam.
Parents can organize their time day by day, visiting cultural centres, shopping at the best shops, doing their own “personal research” into the region’s refined food and wine, walking in the woods or, when necessary, doing absolutely nothing.
Visiting the Parks
Activo Park: is an adventure park where both parents and youngsters can experience outdoor sporting activities, tree walks and ecological games.
The "Città della Domenica": is on an entire hillside to be covered on foot or by miniature railway. It is dedicated to outdoor games and has a zoo with some interesting reptiles.
The "Parco del sole": is a natural oasis where the animals are free to roam.
Rediscover the joy of cooking
There is a barbecue available in the garden for happy BBQs. Enjoy fresh vegetables from our garden and prized meat from local farms which have an outlet nearby.
The kitchen in your flat is fully equipped for quick and more elaborate dishes.
If you want to improve your cooking skills then you could take one or two cookery lessons.
And, if you want, enjoy a beautiful dinner in a typical restaurant or country trattoria, all nearby.
Umbria is so rich in works of art that it’s almost impossible to make a list of all the museums and art galleries that each town or city has to offer. All offering the unforgettable experience of seeing famous works of art at first hand.
Not to be neglected are the smaller or themed museums. As well as the local Civilisation Museums which are gems not to be missed: At Preci, there is the curious Surgical Museum which exhibits the high level of specialization reached in this field, since the 13th century, by the residents of this part of Valnerina.
It’s nearly impossible to make a list, because every Spring until Autumn each town holds a festival. Some have recurring themes (la polenta, la focaccia, first courses, game dishes) others are very particular (such as the Onion festival at Cannara, an explosion of flavours and fantasies in which varying neighbourhoods compete against each other in the production of the most tasty recipes based on onions – which amazingly can be presented in a thousand variations: fried, with cheese, as sauces for pasta and even as puddings.
