Umbria, Abruzzo, Molise, and Le Marche are the food basket of Italy and up until now largely ignored by travel companies. Long may it remain so. Most probably because one really does need a car(s) to enjoy the pleasures contained therein. Or just lucky.
I applaud your choice of accommodation and length of stay. My most recent time was September 2018 when we took a villa about 100 kms to the north of your selection just outside Todi. It was intended to be a recuperation week or so after an intense and extremely enjoyable time with my daughter-in- laws relatives in Abruzzo on the southern slopes of Gran Sasso. This is what we did around Todi:
Day 1. Arrived early evening and settled in.
Day 2. Local co-op and specialty shops to purchase food stuffs and beer/wines. Drive around looking for roadside farm produce for purchase. Children to the pool. BBQ at evening.
Day 3. Spent the afternoon in Todi. Parking area on the north-eastern perimeter and a funicular takes one to the town centre. Evening at Restaurant Umbria.
Day 4. Spent day on the grassy shores of Lake Trasimeno.
Day 5. Early morning set out to Norcia. 140kms north of my home city of Perth is a rural town, New Norcia. We were interested to see the origin of the name. The Spanish monks introduced olive oil.
Day 6. Early morning a son drove my daughter and her husband to Terni to train into Rome for the day. Picked them up late around 10PM. Spent the day in the pool with the grandchildren.
Day 7. Transitioned via Montepulciano to next villa Cavriglia, Montevarchi.
The temperature during this time maxed out at around 27/28C. We were a group of 8 adults and 5.15 children. Leased 3 Renault SUVs for 10 weeks. There was the odd contra taunt, but we are a close family, and these things get sorted without repercussions. From villa we did:
Day 1. Arrived late evening and settled in. Joined by youngest daughter and husband who had flown into Stuttgart, where his sister was living, and then commandeered her car and drove to join the main group for 3 weeks.
Day 2. Swam and purchased food stuffs at co-op and specialty shops in Montevarchi.
Day 3. Early drive to Florence for the day. We know the parking regime at piazza Michelangelo. Return to villa late into evening.
Day 4. Toured eastern Tuscany. Greve, Radda etc. Stopping to picnic and observe the commencement of the grape harvest.
Day 5. Early to Sienna. We use the public parking below the Cathedral and take the escalators up to the town. Stayed until after sunset.
Day 6. The boys and I drove to Scaperia, world renown for knife craftsmanship and to tour the Mugello GP circuit. We had in mind importing top quality sporting knives. The business plan has yet to come together.
Day 7. Swam and lazed by the pool.
Maximum temperatures were a little cooler, around 24/25c. Just perfect. My only recommendation is: enjoy your time with your family. Do your own thing. Do not try to live someone else’s vacation. San Gemini sounds and looks like my type of town. No veneer, a real town caring to the needs of real Italians. English speakers could be at a premium. Helpful if one can understand a little Italian.
