"An exceptional place to experience Umbria"
Our experience in Bettona exceeded our expectations in every way. Include a stay at Giorgio's, it will be a memorable part of your trip. We arrived in the heat of the day. After the winding drive to the hilltop village we were greeted by our host and shown to a cool (a great relief from the heat) comfortable gorgeous private apartment with beautiful views of the valley. The apartment is literally part of the city wall. Bettona itself is lovely and itself a great place to stay. The apartment is clean and very comfortably furnished. It is also close to many interesting activities, including Assisi, the UNESCO sponsored medieval village. This a great value too. Magnifico!, the care that went into renovating and maintaining this apartment in this village was evident in the magical feeling, see for yourself.

This Family in Bettona is a very caring and helpful family. From the time we arrived till the time we had to leave the entire experience was memorable. The owners Francesco and Girgio a father and son team gave us personal attention with guided tours and helpful area directions. For a wonderful vacation in a clean and spacious apartment 1440 near Assisi is the place to centre your trip.

"Delightfully spacious apartment in quiet Medieval village"
The 14th Century house is a lovely and spacious place to stay in Umbria. It is nicely located near many other quiet hilltop villages while still close enough to larger cities if desired. I have just returned from a five week trip down the coast of Brava, Sardinia, Le Marche and Umbria. Our stay with the Foresti family was one of the most unique. As all the other reviewers have already stated, what really makes this a completely different experience is the care and interest the owners give to their guests. They welcome you into their home, and share their lives with you. They will provide lots of input or very little, depending on your interests. If you are looking for a quiet, medieval hilltop village and wish to experience the flavor of Umbria with the help of a very special local family, this is the place to stay!
