I have been venturing to Sant Egidio for vacations with my family for more than a decade. It is truly one of the most peaceful, beautiful, and relaxing places on earth, and I highly recommend it. Sant Egidio allows for modern updated family accomodations, set in the Tuscan countryside, overlooking the historic city of Cortona and all of the valley of Valdichiana. The beauty is experienced in living by day in the countryside of Tuscany, near a small Italian town. This is supplemented with many options for short half day trips to the vineyards in the Tuscan wine region, exploring Cortona and the area around Lago di Trassimeno, and other unique one of a kind Italian towns like: Assisi, Siena, Montepulciano, Perugia, and Arrezzo. Longer full day trips to Florence and the Italian seacoast make for excellent family adventures too! Whether you want to enjoy nature and the quiet life of rural Tuscany or tour the many sites and experiences that Tuscany and Umbria have to offer, Sant Egidio is the perfect place to base you vacation adventures from!!
