If you're really into the spa experience, this is a perfect place for you. If you're dependent upon tour buses to explore the Perugia area, this is a perfect place for you. For my husband and me, this was a less than perfect choice--and entirely my fault. (see other previous reviews from vacationers which extol the Spa Experience) In exploring the region of Umbria, we drove our own car, photographing picturesque scenery and hilltop towns and buying wonderful wine. We chose the Tre Vaselle because of its proximity to vineyards and towns and the fact that it was in the town of Torgiano, where we could walk, explore, and eat after driving around in the countryside. Unfortunately, the town of Torgiano itself (where Tre Vaselle is located) doesn't offer much in the way of tourist amenities--i.e. no picturesque medieval/Roman ruins, restaurants (other than the fantastic Spiro--another review from me coming soon), or sights--the wine and olive oil museums are good, but you can't spend all day visiting them. The Rubesco wine is world renowned--and the Osteria offers tasting and sales--but that's about it. Since it was November, the hotel was operating at less than full capacity, and some areas were not being used....there is underground parking--which we were advised of after discovering that the dozen or so "reserved" parking spots across the street were occupied..there's not a theft problem, but we felt better having the car underground...wending our way through the maze of tunnels to get there! The breakfast was adequate, but not what we've come to expect from a 5 star establishment...the restaurant served good food (another review), but it wasn't outstanding (in our opinion--having lived 35 years in Italy....) Our room #11 (suite) was very nice and we enjoyed the view of Assisi out our window. Next time, instead of staying in the town of Torgiano, I plan to stay in and explore the hill town of Bevagna for a much more authentic experience....(this review is mainly for those travelers who are not looking for a spa holiday, but who may consider this hotel due to its star rating.....)
