Remember Italy has 75% of the world’s art treasures.
Most families in the area have a small holding and produce vegetables, fruit and fresh meat for the household knowing where it has all come from! A few rows of vines and some olive trees and they have enough wine and olive oil too! Domus Nova is no exception with its vineyard, olive trees and plenty of fruit trees and space for a vegetable garden.

Submerging yourself in nature that is all around you in Umbria benefits not only your mental health but your whole wellbeing especially in the world that we live in. Priorities have changed after the pandemic and living in Umbria with its very sparse population may be the right choice to make.
ABOUT THE AREA
Umbria is an Italian region bordering Tuscany, Lazio and Le Marche. Often called the country’s green heart, it’s known for its medieval hill towns, dense forests and local cuisine, particularly foraged truffles and wines. Hilltop Perugia, the regional capital, is the site of medieval Palazzo dei Priori, housing the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria art museum. Pedestrianized Corso Vannucci is the focus of city life.
Italy’s green heart, Umbria is a land unto itself, the only Italian region that borders neither the sea nor another country. This isolation has kept outside influences at bay and ensured that many of Italy’s old-world traditions survive today. Travel here and you’ll still see grandmothers in aprons making pasta by hand and front doors that haven’t been locked in centuries.
The region is best known for its medieval hilltop towns, many beautifully preserved and dramatically set. The Etruscans, Romans, feuding medieval families and Renaissance artists have all left an imprint, from Orvieto’s great Gothic cathedral to Assisi’s fresco-clad basilica. But nature has played its part too, contrasting the wild beauty of the Monti Sibillini with the gentle fall and rise of green hills and wildflower-flecked meadows.
Foodies are in their element here, with tartufi neri (black truffles), fine cured meats and full-bodied local wines finding their way onto regional menus.
