Secluded but at the centre of Umbria. 15 minutes away from Perugia and 30 minutes from Tuscany. Less than 2 hours north of Rome & south of Florence.
LE TORRI DI BAGNARA can be easily reached from the main roads. It is 4 km far from the E45 freeway (Orte-Ravenna, exit “Resina”), which is directly connected to the A1 motorway (Roma-Firenze) and A14 motorway (Bologna-Bari). The international airport of Perugia-Sant’Egidio is only 18 km far.
UMBRIA, THE GREEN HEART OF ITALY Sometimes referred to as ‘the green heart of Italy’, Umbria is a small, hilly and fairly untouched region between Tuscany and Marche. The landscape is similar to that of Tuscany and combines austere Medieval architecture and stone farmhouses with gently rolling hills and rivers.
Lake Trasimeno is contained within the Trasimeno Regional Park, and serves as a seasonal home to many species of migrating birds, while the River Nera Regional Park contains the Marmore Waterfalls, the highest falls in Italy. There are a dozen or so hill towns, each resolutely individual and crammed with artistic and architectural treasures to rival bigger and more famous cities.
The most famous are Perugia, Assisi (with the extraordinary frescoes by Giotto in the Basilica of San Francesco), Orvieto, where the Duomo is one of the greatest Gothic buildings in the country, Todi, Gubbio (considered the most perfect medieval centre in Italy), and Spoleto.
Le Torri di Bagnara looks over a wide part of the Tiber Northern Valley, 18 km north of Perugia, at 300 m over the sea level. The Tiber Northern Valley is also called “Museum Valley” because of its beauty, art and culture. It is a fertile plain, entirely crossed by the river that flows for about 50 km from Perugia to Città di Castello, in the northern part of Umbria.
The landscape of the valley is surrounded by green mountains and hills dotted with castles, towers and medieval villages.
