Hotel Fortebraccio
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Montone
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We stayed here during a very hot period this summer. It is situated in a very small town in Umbria up in the hills. We used this as our "home base" while visiting various towns in the region. The views are fantastic, and the surroundings are very peaceful, especially when relaxing in the pool. There are also several excellent restaurants in the town of Montone within a 5 minute walk of the hotel.
The hotel is clean, quiet and the service is good. The front desk staff and manager speak English well. A continental breakfast (including fruit, pastries, meats, cereal etc.) is included. They also have a lovely pool and supply fresh towels so that you do not have to use the ones from your bathroom.
My only issue with the hotel was that the air conditioning only came on when you had your keycard in the slot. As a result, the room was very hot when we returned from long days touring Umbria (in the 40+ degree C heat) and it took a while for it to cool down. Also, I found the beds to be very hard, though my boyfriend loved it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony, rather than one facing the pool.

Booked 3 night stay using a kbg voucher deal - don't use them as they failed to pay hotel and you can negotiate just as good a deal direct with hotel. Picked up at airport by Mario whose hospitality could not be faulted - spoilt us rotten as we did not have a car so showed us local vineyard and Umbertide. Ate in hotel as food good and reasonably priced and frequented by locals. Our room overlooked the spectacular views over the valley, weather was warm, village was beautiful. Will definitely be going back with a car so we can see more of the area. Used the fitness centre but jacuzzi could have been a bit warmer. Staff could not be faulted for helpfulness and friendliness. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the valley or pool give spectacular views.

We stayed at this lovely hotel for 5 nights recently and what a find! On arrival after a long drive, we were welcomed by their friendly staff and offered a coffee from the wonderful Mario. We have no complaints at all. Beautiful large modern room with equally large modern bathroom. Our room was a corner room which gave us amazing views over the equally amazing countryside.
We were bed and breakfast but ate in the hotel restraunt for dinner most nights. The food was delicious as was the local wine.
We had a car and visited many of the nearby towns and villages - Assisi, Perugia, Umbertide. With Mario's advice we took the train from Arezzo to Florence to avoid mad traffic.
A wonderful base to see surrounding areas but we were always glad to return to the hotel to enjoy the pool area and the friendly atmosphere. A real family hotel and exactly what we hoped to find.
We hope to return and would definately recommend this hotel to all.

We stayed at this beautiful hotel for 3 nights. The full moon rising over the mountain ranges we could view from our balcony was really magical.
The food was excellent, local dishes served by very friendly staff.
The pool has spectacular views over the surrounding countryside as did our room.
We think all rooms have modern bathrooms and interior furnishings.
The hotel is close to the village where there are one or two other small restaurants and a shop and museum.
And last but not least,- Mario,the boss, he certainly "went the extra mile" for us, he speaks good English and a few other languages too, - so could help us with our translation. He always had a sincere "Bonjourno", for us and made sure with the help of his staff, that our needs were met.
This was our first visit to Italy, - we were not disappointed,- it was great.
We had a very quiet and relaxed time here. A unique little gem.

This hotel was really nice! The rooms were modern and clean with beautiful views of the Umbrian countryside. The staff were the real treasure of this hotel - all made us feel very comfortable from the word go. Mario the manager was very friendly!

The only issue I had with this hotel was small somewhat 'unesscary' charges, wifi for example was not free - although only cheap to get connected! Though air con (which was needed in 35c heat) was 50 euros for our 4 days there.


All in all this is a GREAT hotel, and we would definately stay again..highly reccommended!

Nice hotel, very relaxed, no strict pool opening times etc. Great pool with amazing view. food was pricey a la carte so try and phone and get a package with meals included. They speak English on the desk so no problem to phone or email, also the manager Mario said they could do a family discount for parents with children and ring or email them to arrange transfers to perugia.

Montone is a really pretty hilltop village with one or too grocery stores, 3 restaurants, a museum and a post office. Not much to spend your money on! But great place to stay for a 'do nothing break'. To have a more filled holiday you would need to have a car.

I had a very relaxed and super comfortable stay at Hotel Fortebrraccio. The setting is impressive on the top of a hillside and the local town of Montone is a great little place to wander round or relax in the Piazza. The staff gave us a warm welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a pristine room with an incredible vista over the valley that was peaceful and private. The food was delicious at the restaurant and gave us a chance to sample some of the local delicacies. In sum I felt like I recharged my batteries in the lap of luxury. Thank you Mario, Christina, Maria, Stephano and the rest of the staff for a great taste of Italy. I hope to return.
