Often called the green heart of Italy, Umbria is a forested treasure trove of medieval villages, wonderful art and excellent restaurants. It has lakes, hills, rural landscapes, wonderful villages - and just a sprinkling of once-powerful cities that still command respect from their high volcanic cliffs. Not far from haughty Perugia and ancient Orvieto, both strongholds and refuge to 16th C. Pope Clement, lies the lovely hill town of Todi. Despite the towns’ stark stone external structures whose sole purpose was defense, the surrounding green valleys and pastures of today persuade visitors that this is not really an urbanites mecca, this is a place to reconnect with nature, slow down and sip a good red wine. Umbria has been an overlooked area for a while when most visitors tended to prefer the more glamorous Tuscany, but it has recently become a quite popular tourist destination. Culture seekers won’t be disappointed, with its offering of ancient villages rich in monuments and history: Orvieto, Assisi, Todi, Spoleto and Perugia, just to name a few.
Provence is a sun-drenched land of luminous light and varied scenery. Its borders stretch from the turquoise Mediterranean seas and watery inlets of the Camargue to the rugged hills and gorges of Haute Provence. In between are vibrant lavender fields, groves of gnarled olive trees, scarlet poppy fields, Van Gogh sun flower scenes and countless castles and fortified hilltop Medieval villages of blue shuttered houses. The light and the colour of these landscapes has for decades attracted the painters like Chagall, Matisse, Picasso, Renoir and Van Gogh. Cezanne made this his home. The diverse influences of Provence’s conquerers over the centuries have left a culture of people who are proud and passionate. Along with a strong Mediterranean temperament comes a timeless joy for enjoying life. Wonderful ingredients for a holiday in southern France!
Elegant villas and green mountains, framed by the deep blue lakes dotted with white sails - the Lakes are magical! The southern ends tend to be more urbane, sophisticated while the north is closer to nature, but both sides to the lakes' coin are magical and beloved of the Milanese. Lake Maggiore, a very long 68 kms that extend into Switzerland, is blessed with balmy weather that allows its beautiful island gardens to thrive; gardeners and tourists alike can visit the islands via ferry from Stresa. Lake Como, a popular lake with the elegant set, has excellent ferry service that criss-cross the lake to various villas and villages that line its shores.
