Umbria is one of the greenest regions in Italy, but it is also the region of important cities of art, such as Città della Pieve, Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Orvieto and several others. It is a small region after all, so, based in one place, you can easily explore almost all of it. If you decide to come in the summer, choosing a farmhouse with a swimming pool is definitely a winner! Here I have collected the 10 most beautiful (in my opinion, of course!). 

Beautiful farmhouses with swimming pool in Umbria
