The Umbria region

Montone is one of the 10 prettiest hamlets in italy. Located in the heart of Umbria. It is a place where peace and tranquillity is guaranteed. Surrounded by rolling green hills, this part of umbria is breathtaking. We experience all the seasons, there can be snow in winter with lovely crisp mornings after a good frost, spring brings new life and warmth back in the air, the summers are warm with August usually being the hottest and Autumn start to cool again.

Montone is full of history with its fortress like walls that were used to protect the hamlet from invaders. For the festival of the santa spina in August and April the locals dress up in medieval clothing and compete with games of archery and other medieval competitions.

Montone

There are plenty of beautiful places to visit in the area such as Assisi, Perugia, Sancepolcro and Trasimeno lake to name just a few. For those who like activity there is plenty to do, horse-riding, truffle hunting, cookery lessons, wine tasting, boating and surfing on the lake, water park in umbertide, tennis club, football and a fantastic golf course 15 mins away. Apart from all of that there are plenty of festivals during the year, the umbrian film festival is held in Montone in June, festival of the santa spina in August, festa del bosco in October.

There are also plenty of festivals in the surrounding are such as umbertide, citta di castello, trasimeno lake.

"Absolute Perfection"

We had a wonderful stay at Casa delle Grazie. We stayed in La Torretta with our young son and the accommodation could not have been better. Well equipped, including children's toys, high chairs etc. Really great beds and bathroom!
The location is fantastic, close to the beautiful and unspoilt village of Montone. Our host Aine was really helpful in the lead up to our arrival and ensured that our stay was relaxed and comfortable.

"A Truly Magical experience, pure bliss"

My boyfriend and I stayed in La Torretta for a week in July. Our apartment La Torretta is on two levels with a beautifully fitted kitchen/living on the ground floor & a fabulous bedroom & bathroom on the top floor, with the most comfortable king size bed we have ever slept in. The view from the room was breath-taking, looking out over the rambling hill's of Umbria & onto the beautiful walled village of Montone, it was like a dream. Another little treat in our duplex apartment was the fantastic bathroom & the view from our shower was amazing looking out over the neighboring vines.There is a garden area outside each cottage with really comfy chairs, table & umbrella, great to just relax & to top it off the 15m pool with the most amazing view I have ever seen. It was so tranquil & not overlooked in anyway!!! By the way no need pack any water floats, there all there for you.

When we arrived in Casa delle Grazie we were delighted to be greeted with a welcome pack, there was a bottle of local wine, beer, milk, tea, coffee, biscuits, bread, butter jam, salt and an itenery of places to go & see in the area. It was a great idea as, we went to Assisi, about 30-40 minutes away & to a local festival of food, music & culture, both trips were something really special. The local supermarket is only a 10 -15 minute drive with beautiful fresh produce & is really great value. There are also markets on locally, which are great fun, definitely a must see. Also what we found great was the laundry facilities right beside the cottages & a lovely little library of books, you can bring to the pool with you.

The local village of Montone is only a 5-10 minute stroll. It is like something out of a fairytail. They locals are so friendly & it feel's like it has been untouched. There are a great selection of restaurants, bars & coffee shops & are really good value, the standard of food is exceptionally high. We found ourselves going up for coffee or a glass of local wine, sitting in the piazza (the square) for hours watching the slow pace of Montone passing us by. We just fell in love with the village, with its traditions & enchanting streets, it really is an escape from reality & our fast paced life, you just had to relax!!

The owners Aine and Fabio were so helpful & friendly, there was nothing they wouldn't do to make our stay special. Their door was always open & happy to share a glass of wine!! Casa delle Grazie is so beautiful, we hope to return year after year. It will always have a special place in our hearts, with the most amazing memories. Thank you Aine & Fabio for a fantastic holiday
