B&B | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Enjoy the quintessential Slow Travel vacation — a week (that is not to say you can’t stay for 3 days or a month for that matter) in an intimate town where you can settle in and relax. Your stay at the beautifully restored and furnished Palazzo Fiumi-LaPlaca is the perfect base from which to discover Umbria.
The B&B is part of the piano nobile (grand floor) with access to the public rooms of the 17th century palazzo.
Breakfasts are served in the palazzo's main kitchen or on the beautifully planted terrace off the kitchen. Other meals are also available at 15-25euro per person. B&B guests also have access to the beautiful public rooms of the piano nobile. Wifi is available throughout the palazzo.
Please let me know if you will require air conditioning.

The Umbria region
Umbria, known as the 'Green Heart' of Italy, is less discovered than Tuscany but equally as beautiful. The pace here is slower, the cultural activities varied, the art spectacular, and the wine and food unsurpassed. And we are able to share our extraordinary heritage without the crush of tourists found elsewhere. You'll be pleased with the ease with which you can get around to the many small towns to discover treasures from Etruscan tombs, Roman ruins, Medieval towns, Renaissance masterpieces, and so much more.
Known for our wine, and in particular the wonderful Sagrantinos and passitos, Umbria boasts 100s of wineries offering wine tastings upon appointment or join us at the end of May for Cantine Aperte when almost all are open to the public.
Did I mention the extraordinary cuisine? Our sausages - both fresh and cured - will set a new standard for you. The plain town of Norcia is famous for meats, cheeses, and truffles. While strolling the streets, the fragrance hits you even before you enter the shops. And our delicious olive oils, often slightly picante, are unlike others you've tasted. You'll have to come and sample all of it for yourself.
From large towns with glorious works of art — by Perugino, Pinturicchio, Giotto, Luca Signorelli, Benozzo Gozzoli and others — to soaring architecture — from the amazing duomo of Orvieto to the Romanesque churches of Bevagna. And wonderful hill towns to be explored and spectacular views all along the way.
For incredible natural beauty, there are the nearby Sibilini Mountains and the amazing Piano Grande and, in nearby le Marche, the Frassati Caves. The hills and plains are filled with color — from the yellow broom in April to May's poppies, to July and August's fields of sunflowers — making this a photographer's dream destination.
Bettona is a small hill town, originally an Etruscan settlement, is completely surrounded by walls — both Etruscan and medieval. Located within 15 kilometers of both Perugia and Assisi and convenient to the highways that ring Umbria. The Perugia/Assisi airport (now called San Francesco) is serviced by RyanAir and only 25 minutes away.
Bettona is a remarkably tranquil spot with about 350 people living within the walls and about 3500 residents in the Comune (comprised of 4 'frazione'). A morning walk around the walls is a wonderful way to start the day here, followed by a cappuccino and dolce in the bar in the main piazza, and then off for an excursion to one of the many small towns nearby.
There are two restaurants in town, a small archeological and painting museum (a lovely Perugino), two churches, and an oratory with 14th century frescoes.
Guests always comment on how taken they are with the Bettona's charm.

"Country Charm for the City Dweller"
I admit I was skeptical of a trip to the country-side. Didn't I come to Italy to see the sites and cities? But en route from Rome to Florence, my friend convinced me we should stay out in Betton… More
