Things to do

The beautiful surroundings of the Casale della Staffa offer a wide range of activities:

Outdoors

Cycling (bike and scooter hire available), walks in the beautiful countryside, horse back riding tours or lessons. You can ask for a picnic basket to take with you for a day trip to Lake Trasimeno or maybe for a picnic under one of our ancient olive trees.

Arts, history and sightseeing

Many historical towns of Umbria and Tuscany can be visited on a day trip: Perugia (15km), Assisi (35km), Spello (40km), Cortona (40km), Todi (55km), Orvieto (75km), Siena (100km) and Florence (140km) also Gubbio, Citta‘ della Pieve, Montefalco, Bevagna, Spoleto and countless other places rich in beauty, history and art, but there are also smaller enchanting hamlets, perched on top of almost every hill, that offer incredible views, romantic corners and unexpected treasures; check out Corciano, Solomeo, Castiglione del Lago, Panicale, just to mention a few in the immediate vicinity.

Enogastronomy

Umbria is widely known for its local food, which can be tasted in many places: the most important are wine, cheeses, cured meats, mushrooms, truffels and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Also, the Perugina chocolate factory, where the famous Baci are produced, offers factory tours.

Artisanal Products

With its rich history in handicrafts, Umbria is a paradise for those interested in artisanal products. You can visit the many ceramics workshops in the town of Deruta, world famous for Majolica production, the finest italian cashmere manufacturers, the last traditional hand-weaving workshop in Perugia as well as many more interesting artisans.

Festivals and Fairs

In every month of the year there are festivals and fairs to explore. The most important ones are the Umbria Jazz Festival and the Eurochocolate Festival in Perugia, but there are also many interesting smaller markets and fairs (sagre) in the surrounding towns and ancient hamlets.

Additional activities

Upon requests we can arrange art classes for oil painting, water colour technique and traditional majolica (ceramic) painting workshops. We also offer on request cooking classes, wine tastings and local winery visits, as well as gastronomical and garden tours. Least but not last, feel free to look in our ever growing library with a choice of books in italian, english and some german and french, chess sets, decks of cards, puzzles and other games if you decide to spend a quiet summer afternoon.
