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.

- The newly renovated contemporary hotel Fortebraccio is situated just outside of the medieval wall that surrounds the enchanting Village of Montone in Perugia district, a village rich of history and tradition. During the village’s medieval festivals, one can really feel immersed in the ageless and timeless atmosphere that is characteristic of Montone. The view from the hotel is an enchanting and spectacular display of the Umbrian country side. The hotel is just a few kilometers from the main highway E45 which allows you to get to Assisi, Perugia, Arezzo, and the Trasimeno Lake.
