Bastardo is a hamlet in the district of Giano in South Umbria, Italy. You can probably cross this one off your list (as somebody apparently already has) because we understand it is the least attractive village on this part of the planet.

The problem started when an out-of-towner opened a pub during the 17th century that irritated everybody so much they called it Osteria del Bastardo which means the Bastard’s Inn. We don’t think the local hotel owner will be amused if you walk up to him and say “so you’re the bastard who owns this pub”. In fact we hardly recommend it at all.
