Anyone fancy a pretty little village house in Italy? In an absolutely stunning location – the 12th century hilltop village of Vallo di Nera in Umbria – this 2bed house is for sale at €59,500. It is small – but perfectly formed! and at this price excellent value. A perfect bolt-hole for a break to enjoy the many attractions of the region. The medieval village is entirely surrounded by walls with towers and gateways dating from the feudal rule of Corrado di Spoleto. It is within easy access of the towns of Spoleto, Asissi, Norcia, Castelluccio and the Monte Sibilini National Park. Renaissance frescoes abound in the small churches throughout the valley and you can combine hill walks to nearby villages with the exploration of these hidden treasures. Local festivals filled with music, dance and delicious Umbrian food take place throughout the Valnerina during the summer.
