The little village, the highest settlement in the Apennines situated at 1452 meters, was completely destroyed in the fierce earthquakes in 2016 and 2017, forcing the evacuation of the inhabitants and total closure of the village itself. All we can do is come to offer...More

It is very heartbreaking to see the town completely destroyed by the earthquake. But the plains are worth seeing anyway. The best would be if you had a mountain bike, motorbike or a convertible, if you don't, you can appreciate horse rental service down below...More

On a whim we decided to visit Castelluccio while in Umbria. And so glad we did! The car GPS took us through the route which was "officially" closed, so we ended up doing a circular route instead of doubling back through Norcia/Spoleto. It was a...More

I returned to Castellucio again this summer for a long hike in the surrounding hills. It was the bank holiday weekend, so a tad busy. Notwithstanding that, you will always find a place to park, just requires a bit of patience. The town is magical...More

Returned this year at the end of June - hoping to see the fields of lentils in full bloom - almost! Fields of poppies dotted with blue and white were stunning. Stop on the road and admire the view of Castellucio in the distance -...More

We were passing Castelluccio on the way from San Benedetto to Perugia. Took the road which goes on foot of the Monte Vettore. Driving there is obviously a fun, and requires 100% attention all the time. After passing by the mountain, we've got spectacular view...More

Remote village north of Norcia in the mountains where legumes grown in the valley. Recently revisited after our first visit several years ago in the springtime. Each season is vastly different. Wonderful to watch the sheep and shepherds. Excellent for hiking.

Hi i suggest u to come in July, for beautiful flower fields, also if it's very chaotic, too much traffic. Maybe August can be better for less people.
