In the central regions of Le Marche, Umbria, Tuscany, and Lazio feature some lovely areas that are great spots to search for a property.
Le Marche – Caldarola
Caldarola is the land of fairytales, with an abundance of castles and art. Visitors are shocked by the town’s urban layout, rampant with pieces of castles and medieval structures. The place is soaked in history, coming from the 16th century. It’s still very authentic with many historic buildings set in beautiful sceneries.
Le Marche – Corinaldo
This town is one of the best preserved of the central regions of Italy, on the land behind Senigallia. It’s known for its in-tact walls of the city, adding to the still-present medieval center. On the left side of the Nevola River, sits this lovely village. On the top of the hill, Piazza del Terrano hosts a beautiful view. This leads down to the Cento Scale, or Piaggia, with a collection of small streets.
Umbria – Corciano
A few miles from Perugia lies one of Italy’s most incredible villages. Two sides of the town feature an entranceway through the northern Porta Santa Maria and the southern Porta San Francesco. The rest of the village is surrounded by medieval walls from the 13th and 14th centuries. In the center, the municipal tower still stands from its 13th century origins. The entire village is an abundance of small hills, and old, historic houses.
Umbria – Castiglione del Lago
This village also is surrounded by entranceways, the three “doors”: Fiorentina, Senese, and Perugina. During the Middle Ages a castle was built here. Coming from an Etuscan background in northwest Umbria, lies this town on the bank of western Lake Trasimeno. It’s a perfect area for tourists, rich in cultural heritage, environmental beauty, and remarkable art.
Tuscany – Pitigliano
In the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, the “Small Jerusalem” of Pitigliano is situated. During the 16th century, the Jewish community within grew in large numbers, hence the nickname. The oldest homes have morphed into the rocks that support the tow, becoming wildly natural and beautiful while still being man-made. It’s truly unique. Being perched on a cliff, the light of the moon illuminates the town during the night. It seems you are in the middle of a vast void, as though you are present in the last village in existence.
Lazio – Bolsena
This town is largely for its views of the volcanic lake on which it sits on the northern bank. The Volsini mountain range sits on one side while flat plains extend out on the other. Growing to a population of 10,000 during the summer season, this small town of typically 4,000 people, is home to a well-known sailing school and a lovely marina. On the waters of Lake Bolsena, you are allowed to drive sailing and motor boats. It is also one of the cleanest bodies of water in Europe, appropriate for swimming and with coastal walks, great for scenic workouts.
Lazio – CIVITA DI Bagnoregio
With the view of the entire region of Lazio, this majestical city holds some of the most fascinating views. Also known as the “Dying City,” it is placed atop tuff rocks which are slowly eroding. It is additionally situated in the middle of Lake Bolsena and Orvieto, it features pieces of Etuscan origin as well as hints to its medieval periods of existence. It’s a place with surreal characteristics, especially during intense fogs, when it feels like you are suspended in a void of surrealism.
