Relax

Comfort & Luxury

Do as much or as little as you like in Montone. Wake early to experience the sun rising up over the town. The local bakery is just around the corner, so collect your freshly baked bread and enjoy breakfast on your private balcony. 

Think of nothing but relaxation as you slip into your free-standing bathtub or refreshing waterfall shower in a marble-lined bathroom.

As you watch the sun disappear over the hills, the view is nothing less than picture perfect.

Close enough for a weekend getaway, far enough to feel a world away from home.

Eat

Restaurants or Cook

Montone is rich in fresh produce with the Slow Food movement strong in this province for good reason. It's a food lover's dream to sample local truffles, wild boar from nearby woodlands, lamb from surrounding hills or fresh fish straight from nearby Lake Trasimeno.

Montone has restaurants, wine bars and cafes: choose fine dining or sitting in charming Piazza Fortebraccio enjoying an espresso or delicious Italian ice-cream. In addition, the surrounding towns all offer wonderful places to eat that will have you planning your next visit before you leave. 

Why not try learning how to put these fabulous ingredients together yourself? We can help you find an Italian cooking course whilst you stay with us.

Drink

VINEYARDS & Wine Tasting

Home to many prestigious vineyards, Umbria has an astonishing number of excellent wines.

With an array of grape varieties and wine styles, there is something for every palate, from the well-known white wines from Orvieto and the excellent Trebbiano of Spoleto, to the deep rich reds of Sagrantino and Sangiovese. The Montefalco area in Umbria is well worth a visit to see the vineyards and taste these high quality DOCG wines.

The choices are endless and if you need a little help we can recommend wine tasting venues nearby or if you want to venture a little further, Tuscany is just over the hill.

UMBRIA: A Destination

Italy's green heart, Umbria is a land unto itself, the only Italian region that borders neither the sea nor another country. Removed from outside influences, it has kept alive many of Italy's old-world traditions. You'll see grandmothers in aprons making pasta by hand and front doors that haven't been locked in a century.

The Etruscans, Romans and medieval feuding families have left their indelible imprint on its pretty hill towns, where history seems to creep up on you on every corner. 

Montone is a perfectly preserved small medieval town, built on a hill top that overlooks the Upper Tiber Valley. With ancient winding streets and narrow stairways, this historic village was voted one of the "Most Beautiful Villages of Italy". It's close to many interesting places, such as Assisi, Anghiari, Città di Castello, Cortona, Gubbio and Sansepolcro, and there's lots to do from cookery courses to horse riding, walking and mountain biking.

Foodies are in their element here, with the rich earthiness of the tartufo (truffle), fine cured meats from Norcia and full-bodied local wines finding their way onto menus.

ASSISI: Basilica di San Francesco

Basilica di San Francesco is the jewel in the spiritual and architectural crown of Assisi's Unesco World Heritage ensemble. For almost six centuries, its twinset of churches have been a beacon to knee-crawling, blister-footed pilgrims, brown-robed friars, Italian art lovers and saintly sightseers.

ORVIETO: Cattedrale

Nothing can prepare you for the visual feast that is Orvieto's Gothic cathedral, begun in 1290. The black-and-white marble banding of the main body of the church is overshadowed by the rainbow frescoes, jewel-like mosaics, bas-reliefs and delicate braids of flowers and vine – as intricate as embroidery – adorning the facade. Bathed gold at dusk, it is a soul-stirring sight to behold.

PERUGIA: Palazzo di Priori

Rising proudly above the main piazza, this palace, constructed between the 13th and 14th centuries, is architecturally striking with its tripartite windows, Gothic portal and fortress-like crenelations. It was formerly the headquarters of the city's magistrature
