Accommodations for our Culinary Vacations in Italy
Romitorio is a farmhouse on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, between the provinces of Siena and Perugia, near Castiglione del Lago, 5 kilometres from lake Trasimeno. Its seventeenth-century church, dedicated to Saint Anthony the Abbot, is testimony to its deep historical roots.
The Romitorio is set in the countryside of Umbria surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The country house is at the heart of a very historically and artistically interesting area dating back to the Etruscans.
The Tuscan jewels of the Val di Chiana and the Val d’Orcia make this area particularly exciting lovers of Italian food. Highlights are the prized Chianina meat and Pienza’s pecorino cheese, the lentils of Castelluccio, the black truffle of Umbria, and wines of Italy are made in the nearby countryside: Vermintino of Tuscany, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, Grechetto of Orevito, and Syrah of Cortona.
