“Country Charm for the City Dweller”

I admit I was skeptical of a trip to the country-side. Didn't I come to Italy to see the sites and cities? But en route from Rome to Florence, my friend convinced me we should stay out in Bettona. But, it ended up being the most charming leg of my italian vacation. The rolling hills and country-side of Umbria are like an immaculately manicured garden. The streets and buildings are like those idealized European vacations that people continuously swoon over. The property is managed like a country estate that has welcomed you in. But what may have won my heart the most was the kitchen, the cooking, and the food. After all the tourists traps in Rome and Florence, a little authentic relaxation in the countryside is what wins your heart.

“A Perfect Stay in a Perfect Place”

Excellent accomodations, with incredible attention to detail, in a picture perfect setting. Our room overlooked the valley below Bettona, with the lights of Assisi glittering in the distance. Who could ask for anything more? Our host, Michael, has created a piece of heaven in the lovely town of Bettona, restoring a magnificent palazzo in the center of town, with impeccable taste and every amenity one could want. Rooms are spacious and elegantly furnished. Bathrooms are very modern, with a wonderful shower. Michael is extremely knowledgable and helpful, as well as an excellent cook!! We felt right at home, were extremely sad to leave, and hope to return to Bettona very soon.

“Best B&B Experience”

What a truly wonderful experience I found in Bettona. I've stayed at many B&B's and apartments in Italy but the experience I had at Palazzo Fiumi was extraordinary. My room was beautifully furnished with an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfasts were whatever I wanted and served in the main kitchen or out on the terrace. It was a great treat to stay on the main floor of this exquisitely restored palazzo. There were other guests to meet and do things with and we even had a cooking lesson one night. The owner offered no end of help and even provided dinner when I didn't want to go out. His hospitality and generosity knew no bounds offering much more than I would have expected. It was a great experience.
Thanks Michael
