“Alessandro - a superb host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We stayed at Corte Belvoir on the second leg of our trip to the Sibillini mountains. Corte Belvoir is ideally located for many outstanding hikes and a short 5 minute drive from the tourists and hustle and bustle of Norcia with its quality locandas and trattorias. With such a bounty on offer, Alessandro is your man. His knowledge of the area and it's "secret places" is exhaustive but it is delivered to his guests in a sensible, helpful and no nonsense manner. Alessandro has done the research - just follow his advice and you will enjoy your holiday. Our room (the Belvedere) was huge and cool, whilst breakfast was ample and on the terrace below. One of our fondest Umbrian memories will be star-gazing whilstk sat in the grounds of Corte Belvoir with a complimentary grappa or limoncello with the noise and lights of Norcia far below!

A simply wonderful Bed&Breakfast located in the heart of nature and runned by charming and friendly owners that will be more than pleased to give you all the tourist information about the place to visit, where to eat, ...


At just a few minutes drive from Norcia, The Corte Belvoir offers a magic place to stay remembering the Round Table Knights period. The whole place emanates serenity. It's surrounded by mountains and meadows;




In addition, You will be enjoying very nice, new, large and clean rooms with a super bathroom (with hydro bathtub/shower).

Breakfast is included in the price.




If you decide to have a break and envoy Umbria I really recommend this place to everybody.

We drove through Umbria and planned a stay in Norcia. Although stayed only for one night, we greatly enjoyed the place: super attentive hosts, clean rooms with a character and nice breakfast. Alessandro, the host and owner, provided us with great overview of what we could do around Norcia as well as very spot on tips on where to eat - listen to this gentleman, he won't suggest anything less than worthy your attention. Thumbs up!

Our short trip to "Corte Belvoir" was my birthday present for my husband, and I was looking for s.th. small, but with a good living quality, a nice room etc. - and it should be really quite!
"Corte Belvoir" did not only meet these aspects, it is even more than that: THE absolute place for relaxing, having a quite sleep in a beautiful room that doesn't make you feel like being in a hotel, but more or less like being at an old castle. Rosanna and Alexandro restored the old property with a lot of love and feeling of mixing State of the Art architecture and technique with the structure and atmosphere the old buildings radiate.
Both of them are excellent hosts, and they make you feel at home from the very beginning. We feel like "good old friends", and we are very much looking forward to seeing Rosanna and Alexandro again - and to see the beautiful Norcia and Castelluccio-surroundings at another time of the year, too. We will come back!
P.S.: Alessandro's restaurant tips in Norcia were marvellous - especially at this time of the year (we were there in October, truffles time ...!)

Alessandro & Rosie made us feel welcome right from the start. They gave us what looked like a family room even though there was just the two of us which gave us a lot of space. The hotel was immaculate and despite its medieval styling it has everything you could ask for. Only 4km from Norcia, it was a lovely setting - so quiet and extremely relaxing. It is obvious that Alessandro & Rosie have put a huge amount of effort into the restoration of the property and they are continuing to put a great deal of energy into making their guests feel at home. Long may they continue to do so...

Excellent stay in Corte Belvoir of Norcia. We(2 adults) stayed 2 nights on June 12th. We were in room #1 - large, quiet and with comfortable bed. The bathroom was spacious and clean. There were 2 beds at the loft area with stairs going up - it should be nice for family. Alessandra and Rosanna were extremely friendly and very interested in our travel and needs. Alessandra showed us areas to visit and he was always ready to help
with any questions. They gave us bottle water for my husband to make tea before we bought our own water.
The breakfast prepared by Rosanna were very good - fresh fruits, soft bread, cake, cookies and good cappuccino!
Since we don't speak Italian, Alessandra was so helpful to put down beef carpaccio and the word 'Al Sangue'. We had the best beef dinner in Norcia for the 2 weeks visit on the road.
I was a bit nervous about the location, but it worked fine by using GPS with the lat. and long. indicated in the b&b web site.

I have stayed at the Corte Belvoir while touring Italy with my boyfriend, who works for a famous 5 star hotel company and he is Italian....so when i made the booking i was very nervous that the place would have lived to his expactation.
The hotel itself is EXECELENTE,and Alessandro & Rosie (the owners) make you feel like you were at home.
The property its an outstanding old monastery, which was restaured to his beauty. Corte Belvoir is just outside Norcia's town center but far enough from noise and tourist busses but still close to al the fab restaurants and shops....
Its nested away on a peacefull hill, right in the natural park of the Monti Sibillini. At night time you feel like you are 10000 miles away from civilization, so quite with the oak trees wispering away to the wind.
The feeling of peace its all around.
The rooms are very spacious and very cozy, furniture elegant and in mediaval style. The bathroom large and clean with both bathtube and power-shower. The place is defenetely very romantic and it is the perfect gateway for a few days or as a pleasant stop while touring Umbria. Prices are very fair and includes breakfast, a simple but robust farmer-style set up in the courtyard in the summer and in the cozy fireplace room during the winter.
I would like to mention once again that the view is outstanding, miles and miles of beautifull idyllic hills and mountains.
Please if you ever have the chance to visit Norcia, dont miss out on the Corte Belvoir as its the place to stay :).
