Nestled in the Minima Valley in Umbria sits our beloved farmhouse, Casa Miedi. It has been a part of life in the area for over 300 years. In the garden surrounding the farmhouse are many fruit and nut trees that provide the jams and fruits for the various pastries that are served at Casa Miedi. There is also a completely organic garden, and guests can enjoy being a part of the process from garden to the table. Fresh vegetables and herbs are picked daily and used in cooking classes. The ethos here is to be as self-sufficient as possible and to support local producers and help the economy of the region. The kitchen is the heart of the Italian home and we invite you to feel welcome into our kitchen anytime to watch, chat and ask questions while we are preparing meals. Our favorite feature of our home is the original forno al legna, wood oven, that was once used to help families bake their weekly bread when they couldn’t get to the village. We still fire up our forno and make bread weekly and of course pizza for our guests. We open up our home to you and provide you with a unique experience that offers insight into our life here in Umbria.
