Demand for property in Umbria is second only to Tuscany.

In the south of Umbria, beautiful properties, restored in a traditional way, start from 1,500 Euro per m2. Umbria also has great opportunities if you want to renovate an Italian property, with a wide choice of farmhouses which often come with a stone barn, perfect for conversion to an annex for guests.
Umbria is at the heart of the Italian peninsular, it is the one of the few Italian regions with no coastline. Extending along the Tiber Valley, Umbria is often referred to as the green heart of Italy. Umbria is a beautiful region of rolling hills, woods, lakes, valleys and amazing medieval villages perched on hill tops. To the east, the countryside gives way to the dramatic high mountain scenery of the Parco Nazionale dei Sibillini. Umbria's landscapes of winding valleys make Umbria a region that never fails to amaze which is why many second home buyers opt for Umbria over Tuscany.
Throughout the year, Umbria offers a dazzling variety of festivals such as the world famous Jazz festival and is perfect for a wide variety of sports: hand gliding, water sports, skiing and golf.
