Bella Italia! This delightful two bedroom apartment (sleeping up to 6) is set in a majestic 13th century palace in the heart of the Umbrian town of Foligno and provides an inspirational place for a holiday.
The palace is situated just off the main square so there is no need for a car but plenty of parking is available if you need it nearby. Public transport to the many local medieval hilltop towns is easy?with Perugia, Assisi, Spello and Montefalco just a short train or bus ride away.
The townspeople are friendly and helpful and there are many wonderful reasonably-priced restaurants, while daily markets provide a range of local produce for self-catering. Both food and wine are of exceptional quality in this region, which is mainly agricultural.
An English-speaking manageress will meet you to explain the workings of the apartment and to answer any questions you may have.
The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen a large living and dining area, a modern bathroom with power shower and water jets.
I have had many guests stay here who have returned numerous times, this is a very special place which links back to an older time.
We had such a lovely break in Foligno – the beauty all around the area is intoxicating, as well as the Sagrantino. We were very comfortable in the apartment and I particularly enjoyed being surrounded by all your paintings. We managed to watch the Formula 1 in Italian and it was fun to find out which of the drivers could speak enough Italian to give interviews! That was the only thing we wanted to watch TV for as we are avid followers. Had great days out in Perugia, Assisi, Spoletto, Bevagna and very much enjoyed the palace in Foligno – as well as some good meals out. We went to L’Alchemista in Montefalco the last evening. Managed not to put on weight due to all the walking, but the escalators helped a lot once we had discovered them! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I think I have withdrawal symptoms now and need to visit some art galleries at the weekend.
Thank you so much for a lovely holiday – we may have to start learning Italian now!
