Montone (Umbria)

Montone is a walled medieval village in the Province of Perugia in the Italian region Umbria, located about 35 km north of Perugia. The town is the origin of the Fortebracci condottieri family, whose most famous member was Braccio da Montone. The most important religious building the Gothic Church of San Francesco which hosts the Umbrian frescoes, some attributed to the master Bartolomeo Caporali, and interesting wooden sculptures. The church is also the home of the Municipal Museum, which holds paintings, silver, and sacred vestments of great artistic value and, on the ground floor, the Ethnographic Museum, with over 600 items from Eastern Africa. Just outside the center one finds the Rocca d'Aries, an imposing castle which has been returned to its ancient splendor by painstaking restoration work.

Hi there - it's time to renew our house/contents insurance, and yet again Intasure have bumped up their premium, this time by nearly 20%, despite the fact that we have never claimed, and they have also removed earthquake cover.

Can anyone help please? I purchased a small apartment in Umbria in October 2018. In 2019 I engaged the services of a local tradesman to clearout my basement which was kneedeep in rubble from the previous owner.

Buongiorno tutti.  We have owned a home in Ficulle for about 5 years.  Our caretaker and his wife have recently told us they will no longer be able to care for our home.  So we are in need of help to clean, care for our 80 vines, 30 very young olive trees, take care of the lawn, plants welcome gu
