About Villa in Umbria

Villainumbria.com mediates between Italian house owners and foreign tourists who are looking for a holiday accommodation in Umbria. To give the best advice possible to our clients, we visit every holiday home, are familiar with its surroundings and we personally know the owners. We constantly review and update our website www.villainumbria.com and try to insert as much information as possible.

The owners themselves obviously do their best to accommodate their guests and make them feel at home. Thanks to this collaboration with the owners Villainumbria.com has established pleasant and confident relationships on which our clients can build.

Every client who books with us receives online information about the house and about Umbria after the downpayment has been made. This information has been collected by Villa in Umbria, because living in this region, we have come to know it well. 

In case of problems during their stay, our clients can always call us. We keep in touch with the owners and will inform them straight away, so that they are able to solve the inconvenience for you. We know all property owners personally and fully trust them, but something can always go wrong. We will help you communicate with the owner so that any inconvenience will be resolved as quick as possible.
