Be hosted by a family of winemakers staying in a Medieval residence surrounded by vineyards and immerse yourself in the nearby woods to hunt delicious truffles.
Located right in the heart of Italy, Umbria is a still little known region with several natural wonders, like Cascate delle Marmore, vibrant villages and towns, like Orvieto, and a mouthwatering food scenery with local truffles, extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese, a number of tasty artisanal beers and – of course – wine. This BeMyJourney’s Travel Experience takes you to the heart of Umbria‘s taste.
A long weekend or one week, to truly discover the region. Also, thanks to its central location, a holiday in Umbria can be completed by visiting one of the other regions nearby. If you are looking for advice to define the best itinerary, get in touch with Andrea and you will discover places you would not find otherwise.
Spring is the best season for the truffle hunt.
Get yourself into an adventure with an expert truffle hunter and his trusted four-legged friend in the uncontaminated nature of the Umbrian woods, reaching the area where the infallible smell of the experienced dog will guide you to hunt truffles. Once you’ll have the treasure in your hands, a local chef will prepare for you a 3-course truffle lunch.

WHAT TO EXPECT ~ Locanda Palazzone is a Medieval historic residence and wine estate, located in the countryside of Orvieto. The Locanda’s story begins in the XIII Century when it was a “hospitalis”: accommodation for prelates and pilgrims who were heading to Rome to celebrate the Jubilee. After many years, a meticulous restoration brought back the Locanda to its original splendour. Today, Locanda Palazzone is a boutique wine resort where you can experience a relaxed and elegant stay among vineyards. Through the mullioned windows, all the 7 Suites have a panoramic view of the countryside and the Orvieto‘s tufo rock, standing out in the background. Prices start from 188 euro per night.
FOOD PHILOSOPHY ~ The food proposal offered by the Locanda is designed to let you discover the Umbrian culinary heritage. Most of the vegetables and fruits offered by the Locanda are grown in their vegetable garden to provide you with a farm-to-table experience at all meals. When it comes to the wine, if you are a good-wine lover, here you will have a chance to join several experiences designed to discover exceptional nuances. Get in touch with Andrea to learn more.
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY ~ Locanda Palazzone is a historic residence dated back to the last quarter of the 13th Century brought back to its original splendour through a conservatory restoration. The philosophy shaped by Locanda Palazzone and their wine production is about enhancing the uniqueness of the land surrounding the property and its rich heritage. Locanda Palazzone is committed to preserving the local land characterised by a long geological history, by creating wines that represent the characteristics unique to this soil without alternating it. When it comes to the food proposal, seasonality is an ethical obligation and environmental sustainability is a commitment in the way the Locanda select each ingredient.
