The Umbria region
Umbria, mystical and green, rich in natural beauty, in art and history, offers to the visitor many and important reasons to visit the area. With picturesque landscapes, exceptional artistic heritage, there are villages dating from the Middle Age, castles, churches and sanctuaries. Other ancient and quiet villages and archaeological sites make up the area.
From Casa La Torre it is possible to reach within a short time all the most historical and artistic sites of Umbria; Spoleto (15km), renowned through out the world for its Festival, an internationally important musical and cultural event, which runs from the second half of June to the second half of July, Assisi (45km), the heart of Christian spiritually, with the Basilica of San Francesco, Perugia (60 km), the capital of Umbria, an ancient and majestic town, and Orvieto (50 km), with the Cathedral, a masterpiece of Italian Gothic architecture.
There are many minor centres, rich in art and history, for example Narni, Todi, Spello, Montefalco, Bevagna, Trevi Norcia, Cascia. In these localities you can sample foods and drinks typical of Umbria, for example truffles and the Sagrantino of Montefalco.

Moreover it is possible to visit some localities of incomparable beauty, for example Marmore falls (30 mins) or the plain of Castellucio di Norcia ( 1 hour and 30 mins ).
The Spoleto / Macerino area
Macerino is a small and ancient village, 12 kilometres from Acquasparta and 15 from Spoleto which conserves the medieval charm with its narrow alleys. We can find historical information about Macerino dating to 1093 A.C. .
The castle was built with the particular form of extended rectangle and in every angle there was a solid tower. This fort was built for residential purposes.
It is immersed in a green vast forest where you can walk, with Macerino as part of Monti Martani Trekking route.
There are two neighbourhood Restaurants where they serve authentic Umbrian food, for example truffles, pasta, meat of wild boar, cured pork meats.

First of all we were overwhelmed by the beautiful nature driving 10 km by car from Acquasparta on a narrow way inbetween the mountains and the forests in an unhabited world.Finally we saw Macerino situated high on the rocks showing itself as a midcenturian place.The only street overthere was narrow turning high into a gate to a small marketplace.The reception from Mrs and Mr Maria and Franco Donata was overwhelmed and we felt us immediately at home and we settled us in their comfortable house.The house is completely restaurated in the old miscenturian style.There was a very big living room,3 very comfortable sleeping rooms,2 bathrooms and a terrace with a beautiful vieuw on the mountains and forests.The whole house is extremely clean and the owners Maria and Franco are always ready to help you,if problems or to advice you by daytravels in the environment.The stay in Macerino is for people which would like to be far from the busy world.No shops overthere,only a very small local pizzeria,and only a very few houses from local habitants.No other noisy tourists.An environment of where you can make far walks in beautiful nature of where you experience on each corner another beautiful sight.

We were searching for a not very expensive place to stay in Umbria, because our idea was to travel around the place, stay there for just to sleep a night, but happened to be opposite: the house and village was so charming and lovely that we didn't wanted to leave. The apartment is very spacious, decorated in italian style with taste. Brilliant among many others. It was much, much better than we expected.
