The Umbria region

Umbria, better known as the green heart of Italy has so very much to offer to whoever decides to visit.Be it for a cultural holiday or just a peaceful break away from it all.This region is steeped in history offering the visitor an incredible number of beautiful and historical places to visit and enjoy. Assisi, Todi,Montefalco, Spoleto to name but a few.

The balmy summer evenings are enlivened by the numerous village festas held throughout the region.These festas are great fun for allthe family and all offer great traditional food at reasonable prices.


The etruscan village of Bettona is situated high up on the hill, enclosed within the walls,looking towards Assisi, Perugia and Spello.

Within easy driving distance there are so many things to see and do.

For example, why not eat out, very reasonably at one of the local festas,or just enjoy the music.

Try the medieval festival " Il Mercato dell Gaiete" at Bevagna held in June,Umbria Jazz or Spoleto Festival both held during July or one of the many local festas held in August and September. Try a guided bus trip around Perugia.

Plenty of sports to try in the area Golf, riding, tennis and a little further a field rafting and rock climbing

The village of Passaggio(2km) offers all the services needed to enhance your stay, e.g well stocked supermarket, petrol station, bank, bakery, take away. Assisi, the home of St Francis is just a 15minute drive away, whilst Spello, Bevagna, Perugia,Orvietro as well as many other towns, are all within easy driving distance.

"excellent location, nice place, nice people, we come back"

the location is perfect, right in the middle of Umbria, ideal for people who want to explore the neighbourhood, and not far from the motorway. Roberto, the owner, is a very kind person and Liz helps with a.o. the English welcome, though Roberto can explain most in quite acceptable English. The setting is beautiful, with the olive trees, the fig trees (and Roberto wants you to enjoy them, what we did) and the swimming pool in the middle of all this. The accommodation has all you expect a holiday home to have, and the view of Assisi in the evening sun is included (we enjoyed it every night). We plan to go back, there's still a lot of Umbria to explore, end we have found a good base to do that from. Maybe not perfect, but certainly far above average

"Devine gem tucked away under the cute village of Bettona"

My first, and certainly not my last, visit to La Macina di Bettona. It was seriously stunning and I can understand why my parents stay every year! The apartments are well appointed, spacious and clean, and the intimate complex is very well kept - pretty flowers, tidy pool and jacuzzi. Set amongst olive trees and pretty pink flowers, at night we'd see plenty fireflies and by day plenty of cute birds.

Roberto, his family and Liz were very discreet yet clearly have passion and pride in their property, and happy to help if requested.

This really is a hidden gem :-)
