Messenano was an enchanting experience - to live in a traditional Umbrian village in a lovingly created house, Casa Giovanna. The owner, Emanuela, was most helpful from ease of booking to instructions for arrival. The house was very comfortable, fully equipped and functional. We had relaxing times with breakfast and afternoon coffee on our terraces and listened to the sound...

About the neighborhood
The hamlet is the best way to visit our wonderful historic towns :Spoleto, Todi Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia and our great natural wonder. Marmore falls, the mounth of Castelluccio, The road Valnerina Abbey, Castles....
Our hamlet is for people who love walking trekking and good food and wine.
Nestling amongst the hills of southern Umbria, Messenano is the perfect place to relax whilst enjoying the delights of the region.
Below the village is a small lake that offers fishing or a peaceful place for a picnic. Walk the hills, taking in the views of woodland and olive groves and the only sound to disturb you will be birdsong.
To stay in Messenano is to be part of a traditional community. Only a few of its houses have been renovated as tourist lets or weekend retreats.
The rest are homes...
