As an alternative to Tuscany - due to price, amount of expected tourists and restrictions with time - we headed to Umbria. After a little searching we decided on Spello. So glad we not only chose Spello but also Cacciatore. Driving into town you see how amazing the old town is, like out of a fantasy movie. Sitting on a hill the town is breathtaking - but small i.e. not overwhelmed with tourists.
Cacciatore is towards the top of the hill. The view from the terrace where breakfast is served (as well as dinner if you chose to eat there) is to die for. In fact most (about 10 of 15) rooms face the valley - probably the best view from a room I have ever had.
The breakfast spread is unbeatable. Meat, amazing wholemeal croissants, coffee, fruit and the general cereal/yogurt/bread/juice. Dinner is fantastic. Cacciatore literally means 'hunter' so expect great meat. While in town though we definitely recommend 'il trombone' just up the hill - get the mixed grill and a pizza.
Overall very clean, comfy, quite, easy to do day trips to Assisi and wine country, and parking available.
Definitely recommend this place.
