Ferragosto is a public holiday celebrated on 15 August in Italy, in the Ticino area in Switzerland and San Marino. It coincides with the major Catholic feast of the Assumption of Mary.
The day of mid-August is traditionally dedicated to outdoor trips with handsome packed lunches and picnic, and given the seasonal heat, to refreshing baths at the sea or by the lake.
The exodus to the mountainous or hilly localities, in search of refreshment, is also widespread.
In our country houses you can spend a nice mid-August, relaxing and refreshing in our swimming pool with Jacuzzi. You can also discover the beautiful villages located in our area, where you will find many interesting events. Among many we can appoint two:
In Sarteano on August 15, just before sunset, takes place the Giostra del Saracino, race of skill between knights belonging to the five districts of the municipality, dating back to the sixteenth century and preceded by an evocative historical procession in costume (https://www.giostradelsaracino.it/).
In Città della Pieve every year, in mid-August, takes place Palio dei Terzieri, a very famous Medieval festivity with many events for the whole family (http://www.paliodeiterzieri.it/).
Welcome to relax and to enjoy a wonderful holiday in our country houses!
