- Well-maintained and peaceful park in Umbria
- Traditional cuisine served at the on-site restaurant
- Outdoor pool and wine shop
There shouldn't be much difficulty in sourcing stuff to see and do in this spectacular part of Perugia. But if you find yourself dithering about just what to sample (for there really is mucho stuff to see and do), just find friendly owners Francesca and Daniela, who've run Camping Rio Verde for over a decade.
The pair will happily share their many tips on the local region – top restaurants, local attractions and secret spots nearby all included. You could, for example, canter along to the horse riding centre within 100 metres to venture out into this splendid Umbrian countryside by horseback… or ask for advice on the many mountain bike and hiking trails in the immediate surroundings; the team can help you arrange your trips.
The site is well set up for lazy Italian days too (eats and drinks mostly, but of course): the scent of freshly-baked bread, croissants and espresso wafts about in the morning, and the restaurant serves local specialties of organic produce, most from the Rio Verde veg garden and farm (fettuccine with truffle mushrooms, anyone…?). There's a wine shop too, for sampling the finest Italian vinos with your eats or later back at your berth in this peaceful wooded valley.
Other facilities – should you stir from the restaurant and wine shop – include an outdoor pool, a food shop (again, but of course) and free wifi. For supplies and urban days, Camping Rio Verde is five kilometres from local village Costacciaro. Further afield, Perugia and Assisi are each within 55 minutes' drive.

The small village of Costacciaro is most famed for the Monte Cucco caves, 10 minutes' drive or about 45 minutes' walk from the site, and open to the public for an 800-metre stretch. More caves are at Frasassi, 45 minutes away, where huge caverns are stuffed with stalactites and stalagmites and among the most famed caves in Italy.
About an hour's drive will land you at Monte Catria, for cable cars up to its peak as well as a mountain bike park and hiking trails around its terrain. Kids will likely appreciate the adventure park at the mountain's top, with a huge playground, bouncy castle and lines for zipwiring.
You could spend days horse riding, hiking or mountain biking around this section of Perugia countryside, but if you're up for city days (you should, for they're fab), drive along to Assisi to see its stunning Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi, two castles and Roman amphitheatre. Gubbio (30 minutes) is home to the colourful race of the Corsa dei Ceri, held every May, and Fabriano (35 minutes) is well worth a look as one of Italy's two towns in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (the other is Bologna).
