Enter by a gracious small courtyard in the heart of the medieval village of Montefalco just off the main piazza. A beautifully renovated apartment around the edge of the courtyard with it's own private entrance. Named after the local artist Francesco Melanzio, the apartment has one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, with private bathrooms, kitchen and living room.
A cosy downstairs living room kitchen combined has a comfortable bench seat along on side of the room and a large glass dining table able to seat 6.
The main bedroom is on the middle level with an ensuite bathroom.
The attic level has two single beds and a small bathroom.
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.

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!
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.
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.
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!).
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
Mein Mann und ich verbrachten in August eine wundervolle Woche in Montefalco, auch dank dieser wunderschön restaurierten Wohnung im Herzen der mittelalterlichen Hügelstadt. Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts. Einzige Einschränkung: das sehr kleine Badezimmer. Der abgeschirmte Hof mit kleinem Pool lädt zum Entspannen oder gemütlichen Lesen ein. Man wohnt nur wenige Schritte von der stimmungsvollen Piazza del Comune entfernt, ist in wenigen Minuten im Caffè del Corso, wo eine ganze Reihe von italienischen Tageszeitungen zur Auswahl stehen (am Kiosk im Corso bekommt man eine grosse Auswahl an ausländischen Zeitungen, zumindest im Sommer), besucht das Museo di San Francesco mit umwerfenden Fresken des Künstlers Benozzo Gozzoli, spaziert einfach durch die schmalen Gassen oder geniesst eine wundervolle Aussicht auf die nähere Umgebung. Natürlich ist auch für das leibliche Wohl gesorgt: es hat genug Restaurants, Bars und Enoteche, in denen nicht nur Rosso di Montefalco und Sagrantino serviert werden.Ganz besonders zu empfehlen ist L'Alchimista auf der Piazza del Comune, einfach umwerfend, was Patrizia auf den Teller zaubert! Wer sich für Textilien interessiert, darf natürlich die Tessitura Pardi nicht verpassen: traumhafte Stoffe, die sogar königliche Brautjungfern einkleiden! Wen es dann auch etwas weg zieht, kann von Montefalco aus mit dem Auto eine ganze Reihe wunderschöner Orte in der näheren Umgebung besuchen: Spoleto, Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Bevagna, Trevi, Spello, Orvieto, Terni. Auch einen Abstecher in die benachbarte Toskana ist durchaus möglich. Ein rundum gelungener Aufenthalt! Sehr zu empfehlen.
