This is a great place from which to explore Umbria and Tuscany, but once here you may not want to leave...

 

The very tranquil setting is just 2.5 km (4 minutes drive, 30 minutes walk) from a village with shops, bars, pizzeria, pharmacy and bank, and just 11 kms form the historic city of Spoleto, one of the loveliest and and most beautiful Umbrian cities. With all facilities for food (excellent restaurants and wineries!), shopping, art and culture, the city, declared Unesco World Heritage site, is unique thanks to the beauty of its roman and medieval monuments and the breathtaking surrounding landscape. Spoleto boasts a strong cultural tradition thanks to the Festival of the Two World - Festival dei Due Mondi - a prestigious international festival created in 1958 by the composer Giancarlo Menotti; it takes place in Spoleto from end of June to mid July.
