About the property

In the heart of the medieval village of Montefalco in Umbria

The complex of three apartments is set in the heart of the medieval village of Montefalco in Umbria. You enter the beautifully renovated apartments through a private entrance reached after crossing the small central courtyard which is shared with the three Arco Romanico apartments. The convenient location, within the city walls of Montefalco, allows visitors to experience both the historic and artistic atmosphere that characterises the site with ample views of the valley below. From the peacefulness of the town, which is also known as the 'Balcony of Umbria', to the splendid tours of cities such as Perugia, Assisi, Foligno, Bevagna, Spello, Trevi and Spoleto, l'Arco Romanico offers visitors the chance to be in the historical centre of Montefalco and, at the same time, a pleasant place to stay while exploring the surrounding area.

In Montefalco, also, very interesting the production of extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese, truffles, ricotta, and mountain cereals such as farro and roveja. And more Wild Foods Adventure: an authentic and unforgettable Umbrian experience including local cuisine, language, amazing landscapes, traditional culture, loads of wine and much more!

Cozy Apartment in a Beautiful Town

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Melanzio apartment!

The town is great. Quiet, friendly people and GREAT food. The restaurants are spectacular. We did cook a lovely meal in our kitchen one night. (The grocery is just outside the walls and very convenient. Also, there are small markets just for meat and cheese which are great for snacks and 'happy hour' at home.) We had everything we needed. There were also plenty of pillows and blankets and the heaters work very well.

Our host Natalia was always around if we had questions. We actually ran into her a few times during our stay and she was very helpful. My husband speaks a little Italian and she speaks a little English so we were able to understand each other well enough. Francesco, who we spoke with on the phone a few times, was very helpful as well.

If you can't do stairs or have little ones who aren't ready for stairs, I recommend trying one of the other 2 apartments in this villa. They can be a little treturous if you aren't paying attention. Also, if you are driving there (which is recommended) you need not worry about parking as there is a spot for you just around the corner from the front door to the courtyard. (But pay attention to signs, there are many one-ways and watch out for kids, animals and the occasional tourist who wanders into the middle of the road.)

We fully intend to visit again during a warmer season and take more advantage to the garden area and the pool!

Owner's Response: Thank you Haley for your kind words. I am very glad to know you had a good stay in Montefalco with its restaurants and small markets for the "happy hours" at home. Surely you have to return in the summer time to live more the garden and our pool. Have a good time home and ciao from Natalia and me. Ciao, Francesco.

Italy Family Vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 2 teenage boys stayed in the Melanzio unit. We can't say enough about the property and Montafalco. An absolutely charming medieval village on a stand alone hill top. Very close to many other villages and a town to buy groceries. During August, the Festival de Montefalco is going on and you can hear some reveling going on but that's half the fun. Really wonderful trip and the apartment was big enough for our family. The pool was perfect at the end of the day!

A beautiful location in a beautiful Umbrian town

  • 5 of 5

The town of Montefalco is a lively town that is not overrun by tourists but has all the shops, cafés & restaurants that we needed for our visit.

The house was as described in the website and the kitchen was well equipped. The wifi connection in Melanzio was weak (the modem is in another apartment, we think) but that is just more of an excuse to make use of the lovely garden and pool. The small pool was perfect for cooling off in after a day exploring the towns and countryside of Umbria.

In summary, a perfect house only 100m from the town square in a lovely old town.

Beautifully Restored and Presented

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Melanzio recently and found the apartment charming. The living area was cool in the heat, and well appointed. The owner was very pleasant to deal with, and responded to some minor requests immediately. It was a couple of minutes' walk to the piazza with its bars, ristorantes, churches and shops.The apartment has a wonderful courtyard area with a good sized lap pool for cooling off in the July heat. With just three apartments sharing this outdoor area (the photos don't do it justice) there is plenty of space to read a book quietly on one's own, but the opportunity is there to socialise with others if desired. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment complex as a great choice.

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

In March of 2009 my husband and I stayed six nights in this wonderful apartment in the heart of Montefalco. It was in a wonderful location for day trips and it was a terrific home base. We fell in love with the area and appreciated the kindness and flexibility of the owner, Vitteu. The apartment was very clean and well represented online. It has a beautiful ambiance and you can enjoy simply relaxing inside or walking about the town, never far from your home away from home. There were several enotechs only minutes away by foot and also a wonderful little grocer which we frequented to buy vegetables and meat for our dinners. There are also several cafes close by which we frequented on a daily basis. If you get a chance, we also highly recommend an experience with the "Montefalco Mob" which made our trip. We would not hesitate to stay here again and hope you get to experience the charm of the town and apartment (and Vitteu!).

Beau de loin, mais loin d'être beau

  • 2 of 5

Appartement qui pourrait être très agréable s'il avait été bien pensé, conçu et rénové. Ensemble décevant par rapport aux photos. Appartement qui n'a pas été rénové dans les règles de l'art. de même pour la piscine. Equipement minimaliste. Par contre, situation géographique idéale. Région magnifique
