“Castle on the hill” is the title of Ed Sheeran’s latest music video. The British singer came back just last week from the first and very successful two italian dates of his “Divide Tour”.

We wonder if that “castel on the hill” could refer to the estate he recently bought in Umbria, near Paciano. What we do know for sure is that “the green heart of Italy” found a way into his heart, winning him over:  the singer-songwriter stated that it was love at first sight when he saw the beautiful vineyard that, together with twenty rooms and a piece of land surrounded by Umbria’s countryside, made him dream about a future family to raise in a place where he and his children could learn not only the italian language, but also the traditions and cuisine of a country that, in this filed, fears no competition.

Is definitely an hopeless romantic this redhead pop star, who confirms to be deeply fond of the values of love and family, revealing the roots of his great fascination for Italy that seems to “run in the family”: his parents chose Umbria as destination for their honeymoon!

Far away from the glamour Hollywood lifestyle, he admits that he chose the small village near the Trasimeno Lake (with less than a thousand of residents)  to maintain his privacy: “Tuscany is already filled with Brits”.

Well Ed, maybe it was better to keep it a secret.

So for all Ed Sheeran’s future brides and fans, this is the place to be! You have to have a look to our list of the best destinations and inspirations of Umbria!
