A really wonderful place, we have just returned from a trip to Italy where the highlight was 6 nights in Borgo della Marmotta. None of the rest of our accommodation came close and we found ourselves wishing we had booked more time here.
Our room was a classic room on the ground floor of one of the converted barn buildings, it was decorated simply but everything was of a high quality and well finished.
The drawing room in the main building was beautifully furnished and was a lovely place to have an evening drink from the honesty bar.
The grounds and pool area are exceptionally well cared for and very beautiful.
Food was excellent, the breakfast was consistently good and was prepared and presented with real care and attention. We ate lunch there on our final day and it was excellent, the best lunch I ate on my two week trip.
On top of all this the people were wonderful. Fabio was a star, a real asset to the team there. Everyone we dealt with made huge efforts to help us, recommending trips and restaurants. I most appreciated that these recommendations were specific to us and were based on what we had enjoyed eating or visiting elsewhere.
The best word i could use to describe the people was sweet, all genuinely nice people who care for the place and visitors.
The place is charming and relaxed and the staff keep their distance unless asked for help.
I found the region excellent for half day trips to Trevi, Assisi, Bevagna, Montefalco and Spello. My wife likes a bit of relaxation, so this worked well. We could do some sites and be back at the pool for a few hours in the evening.
The Valle de Nere is a great day trip and easily accessible from Poreta. Spoleto is a great city, and we went there most evenings for the restaurants. As one of the guidebooks said, Spoleto takes it's food seriously and we found this to be the case. Good quality restaurants were not hard to find.
I would have no hesitation recommending Borgo della Marmotta and I do hope to return.
