“The PERFECT place to stay in Umbria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

If your future travel plans will include Umbria, I heartily recommend the Cerqua Rosara Residence. Our apartment five minutes drive from the small town of Valtopina was fabulous; for we had a luxurious suite of rooms that was only three years old and well-appointed indeed. But the real highlight for us was the incredible hospitality shown us by our hosts Rosalba and Gianni. They provided us with every assistance possible - one evening we roasted a chicken together in a wood-fired oven designed and built by Gianni in the b&b portion of the facility. In my view, the food in Umbria is much better than in Tuscany and the wines, while not as spectacular as their Tuscan cousins, offer very good value for the money. Our meal with Gianni and Rosalba ended with the local equivalent of ice wine, red not white, and smooth as silk. The grapes are left on the vines to sun dry then, harvested in January after having sat under the winter's snow. The concentration of sugar and flavour is incredible! Located in the north of Umbria, Valtopina is a convenient place to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Umbmbrian countryside but having easy access to Perugia, Assisi, Folignio, Gubbio, and Spoleto. And Cerqua Rosara Residence is THE PLACE TO STAY.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent, but the best are the end units with patios.

We have stayed at the hotel for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. It is a great place to relax and lay back and enjoy the great outdoors of Umbria.
It is close to all the famous Umbrian towns (like Assisi and Perougia) but far enough so you can really enjoy the peace and quiet. The place is clean and has everything that is needed on a vacation.

We visited in early March with our one year old daughter. We arrived on a very chilly day and Gianni (the owner) had a fire going in our fireplace when we arrived! We immediately felt at home. He had a baby cot and bedding all ready for our daughter. Gianni made sure that we had everything we needed to be comfortable. He took us into town and introduced us to two restaurant owners. He even got a grocery store open for us after hours.

During our stay, he cooked dinner for us with his wife and mother-in-law. What a treat! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cerqua Rosara Residence to friends and family. It was definitely a highlight of our trip!

From the moment you drive along the road and see this house appear you will be impressed.
It just has that WOW factor, A Beautiful house set in stunning scenery.
Our stay here was so relaxing, we truly did not want to leave, Gianni the owner is the most hospitable host i have ever met, There seemed to be nothing that was too much trouble for him.
From Spending time in the kitchen showing my wife how to cook traditional Italian food, to acting as a Taxi driver and tour guide, He took us to Foligno and showed us some of the sites including Wine tasting in Montefalco and a visit to the oldest Olive Oil producer in the region.
The house is perfect for a stay summer or winter, there is a lovely swimming pool which is set away from the house for privacy, the main house has a wood burning fire and all apartments have central heating should the nights become a little chilly, Cleanliness was impeccable, and we found that our apartment was equipped with everything we could possibly need.
The local region is famous for truffles and there are some great restaurants that specialise in local cuisine, There is a great little Bar and a shop at the end of the road where we were always welcomed warmly even though we do not speak Italian.
The village of Valtopina is within easy reach of Perugia Arport, and Foligno is only 10 mins away, The famous Town of Assisi is just down the road, And Foligno is on the main trainline to Rome so if you fance a daytrip it is easily achievable and surprisingly cheap compared to train fares in UK.
We hired a car from Europcar in Foligno for a very reasonable price and this enabled us to go exploring, Indeed we even took a drive to the Adriatic coast which took around 1.5hrs
We will DEFINATELY be visiting again, and i really hope we get to stay at Cerqua Rosara again.. Well done to GIanni for creating such a warm & welcoming place to stay.

Room Tip: Take some slippers as all floors are tiled and you WILL get cold feet in the winter

The Cerqua Rosara Residence is a beautiful, comfortable oasis in the heart of Umbria. We greatly enjoyed the peaceful setting and picture-perfect surroundings. Assisi, Perugia and other wonderful sights are very close and accessible. The owner, Gianni, was very warm, helpful and courteous - a true host. Our suite was also spotlessly clean and complete with full amenities (including a personal laundry!). This hotel was a great discovery and we definitely plan to return there in the future.

Room Tip: We loved our suite/apartment. The rest of the rooms seemed equally pleasant.

We just returned from our 8 days stay at Cerqua Rosara Residence. This is our 4th visit to Italy, but our experience at Cerqua Rosara Residence was possibly our best ever. The location is excellent, with all Umbrian’s main attractions easily accessible. The villa itself is situated in the middle of the green Umbrian countryside. The apartment is well designed (absolute privacy), the furniture is nice and kitchen is well equipped. In a distance of 100m from the apartment there is a swimming pool (if the weather allows). But what makes the big difference with other such places and makes Cerqua Rosara Residence so special, is its owner - Gianni. His hospitality is above and beyond anything you can imagine. One example to this - on one of the evenings during our stay Gianni prepared a nice Italian dinner and invited us to join. This was very nice evening! We'll definitely recommend this place to anyone, who is planning to visit Umbria.
