Casanuova is located close to St. Francis of Assisi’s Path of Peace which is a pilgrim path between Assisi and Gubbio that crosses through the woods of Assisi and Valfabbrica between the Giomici Castle and Mt. Biscina along the Chiascio River. The property also boasts views of the Abby of Vallingegno which was originally a small temple dedicated to the God Genio (Genius), but is now one of the most important Abbeys in the area, and the Giomici Castle which proudly stands with its towers and bulwarks and dates back to the XII century. The Parco Regionale del Monte Cucco (a nature reserve) is close by and covers a section in the upper Chiasco valley between the Apennines and the ancient Via Flaminia. Activities include hiking over 120km of trails; as well some trails may be covered by bike or on horseback. The house is in the countryside, but is close to restaurants and shops in Casacastalda. One can easily visit Umbria's most important cities and towns like Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi, Spello, and Orvieto.
