Casale Clitunno enjoys a lovely riverside setting on a large estate between Trevi, Montefalco and Foligno. The Clitunno river dates back to antiquity and bears the name of a Roman river god. It is said that the Romans enjoyed the great beauty of the Clitunno, whose origins come from a spring near Spoleto. Casale Clitunno is a typical Umbrian farmhouse dating back to the 17th century. It is reached by crossing the Clitunno River on a characteristic stone bridge dating to 1775, which is inscribed in the stone. The surrounding fields are graced with lavender, sunflowers, wheat and sagrantino vines. This prestigious wine grown uniquely in this area is one of Italy's finest wines and is most associated with the hilltown of Montefalco, which figures prominently on the horizon. Also close by is Bevagna, an ancient town whose city walls are still intact. Bevagna is known for its medieval festival, Festival of the Gaite, that takes place every year at the end of June. The capital city of Perugia is less than an hour away and offers a wealth of history and art, medieval architecture, and restaurants and shops.
