Winter in Umbria
Staying in at Villa Nuba during the winter renting an elegant residence or our romantic B & B is surely a unique experience:
Feeling at home even if in a city that is not yours is a rare experience.
Our lovely apartments for rent are the ideal solution for those who like to feel at home even when you are away from home. In the winter, after returning from a walk through the medieval walls and the ancient Etruscan city of Perugia, you can heat up in front of the typical wood-burning fireplaces present in every home. Sipping a glass of good umbrian wine, relaxing in the hot tub and finally fall asleep under a romantic starry sky with the constellations that every room of the apartments offers.
However in Winter rates for long stays are very convenient. In fact at the same price of a short summer stay you can stay much longer thus dedicating more time to the discovering of Umbria, self-care and relaxation.
During the winter season in Umbria is never very cold and you can watch demonstrations of particular interest: Umbria Jazz Winter in Orvieto, it is a winter festival of jazz in the wonderful setting of the theater Mancinelli, the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo and the Cathedral of Orvieto where there’s also the year – ending party culminating in the gospel of the New Year.
The oil is an important part of umbrian cuisine. “Frantoi aperti” (open mills) is the event, organized during the first weekend of November, in which all the mills of Perugia and surrounding areas open free of charge to those who want to discover the secrets of the art of making Etra Virgin Olive Oil. It is a real Olive Oil Tour that between one bruschetta and other tasty degustation will you make discover ancient tradition and fundamental flavors of Umbria.
But the highlight of events in Umbria finds its best expression in the Christmas period. It is an opportunity to celebrate Christmas in all the churches of Assisi and Perugia with solemn liturgies accompanied with sacred music and choirs.
One can visit beautiful artistic cribs and living nativity scenes especially in Perugia and Assisi, where the mood of religious and spiritual Christmas is above all is pointed at peace between peoples.
