Medieval Palace Apartment in Italy

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Perfect Base to explore Umbria and Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Foligno is a delightful town and this beautiful, well equipped apartment is an ideal base to enjoy local sights, as well as being accessible to visit towns and cities a little further afield. Assissi and Spelato are local gems, steeped in medieval history. Florence and Rome are a train journey away, and Siena is easily reached by car. The locals are friendly and variety of restaurants offer good food at good value.

Four Ladies' Arty Italian Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as advertised, well equipped and beautifully clean and bright, with the added bonus of lovely artwork on all the walls. It was conveniently situated for shops, trains, buses, restaurants, churches, everything! The English speaking manageress was more than helpful and went out of her way to assist us and quickly and efficiently sorted out our problems and we were transported to and from the airport by a friendly Italian lady taxi driver. It was easy and cheap to use the train to get to Assis, and Perugia although it's a must to check the timetable carefully for return journeys although both stations provide good waiting facilities. Foligno station is a ten minute stroll from the apartment. Spello is also worth a visit and we used the bus just for a change, also cheap and comfortable, but again, check the return timetable although passing time in Spello is no hardship with good facilities and a nice Piazza with a fountain and seats under trees.

There is plenty to see in Foligno too, the Duomo and Museum in the centre with wonderful artwork and frescoes and a walk along the riverside is very relaxing and semicircles the town making it easy to return to the centre for a cappucino and sit outside in the Paizza della Republica when you've had enough walking or go via the Parco del Canape where you can get refreshments too.

It's worth looking down the little side roads for small family run restaurants, the Ostercia dei Picarei and Ocabiocca where Nicoletta the owner speaks good English and delights in talking about her locally grown, organic produce and giving free tourist information and map reading assistance.

I would recommend this property and Foligno wholeheartedly but don't book it when I want to go again.
