We spent a week with our adult children at this beautifully located hotel in the Umbrian hills. The hotel is a carefully adapted old building in the walls of this fortified village which is a delight in itself with its narrow stepped streets and ancient feeling. A small and tight-knit staff team manage between them to give a really excellent level of service, going to lots of trouble to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay.
The food in the restaurant is generous Umbrian cooking at reasonable prices and the wine from the local negociant in Marsciano is very good. Rooms are comfortable rather than luxurious and have a faintly old-fashioned feel which I like, but might not be for you if you are after the last word in metropolitan style.
There is a very private swimming pool about 100m away.
I recommend this as a place to experience the full feeling of an Umbrian hill town without the bustle of the larger places. I would say this place is great for couples and older families and would be perfect for a group of adults sharing a holiday together.
