“splendid slow food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2007

It doesn't look like anything worthwile when looking for the hotel driving south out of Foligno on the Viale Roma, but once you drive into the lane, pass the vegetables garden and see the villa, you enter a world on its own.
The hotel seems most of all to be an excuse for dining or having breakfast, as the owner is one of the best slow food and natural cooks we have encountered in Italy.
There are only a few rooms and limited set of couverts, and as the lady of the house is the cook and manager, you should not come here when in a hurry. In the morning, you might be waken up by the sound of the lady of the house in her kitchen, preparing the 'fonds' for the evening, or baking bread, cakes and puddings for breakfast.
Once you allow yourself to the lazy mood, the swimmingpool is just a perfect surplus.

  • Liked — this is slow italy with excellent food. You love it or you hate it.
  • Disliked — owner speaks only very little english or french
  • Stayed July 2006, traveled with family
