“A small friendly hotel with excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

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.

Room Tip: The rooms in the north corner are the best with two windows, great views and better ventilation. On...

Relais il Castello is the perfect place to recharge the batteries, with swimming pool, spa and delicious Italian food.
We've been there for a week-end, the right time to enjoy the place and visit the surroundings, with Perugia, Todi and Trasimeno lake.
The Ralais is and ancient castle, it seems to be in the Middle Age, in an old village. Our room had a great view of the valley, no noise around, very peaceful and quiet.
The breakfast offers a variety of savory and sweet food, delicious espresso coffee and cappuccino and it's served in the wonderful private garden…the best way to start a day!
The restaurant is a big medieval room, but really cozy, and the food is just fantastic, always fresh and very well presented.
Last, but not least, the staff is very kind, ready to help with bookings, excursions, suggestions…they really take care of their guests.

Room Tip: Ask for valley view
