On the hill top next to Montegiove you will find the old medieval hamlet of Greppolischieto. The village was renovated some 40 years ago by the Fendi family and is currently used as private holiday homes, with only one family living there permanently.
It has an unreality above it, almost completely out of time. As our friend and blogger Ishita from Italophilia writes after we visited Greppolischieto together:
“Greppolischieto has a tiny piazza, picturesque lanes and stunning countryside views. There are no bars or trattorias here, only uninhabited homes and lost stories. The little village is an absolute stunner yet slightly haunting too. Everything is eerily quiet and empty. It is undoubtedly a special corner of Umbria!”
One of our favourite walks is the trip back and forth to Greppolischieto to enjoy the stunning view over the Trasimeno lake and the fairy tale like nature on the way up there.
