The rooms are spacious, the kitchen (with marble counter) has everything you will need to prepare full meals, the bed is extremely comfortable with beautiful linens and soft towels, and the bathroom has a full tub/show combination. From the windows the entire Spoleto Valley opens ups with Assisi, Mount Subasio, and the Apennines in the distance. Sunrises are breathtakingly beautiful. The apartment exudes comfort and tranquility.

Further details outdoors

We are located in the historic center of town only two blocks from the main piazza the center of activity in town where you can enjoy a cappuccino at the bar bar or delicious Umbrian fare at the osteria.

Location description from owner

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

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.

“A characterful apartment”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2013

Palazzo Fiumi-LaPlaca is set in the ancient hill town of Bettona with beautiful views across the valley. We stayed in Gufo, a studio apartment with solid stone walls and a mezzanine area for the comfortable double bed. The kitchen area is very well equipped with a full set of sharp knives. Michael has renovated the palazzo with a fine eye for detail . He takes a genuine interest in his guests and is happy to guide people on art,wine or food tours. We had an enjoyable day in his kitchen completing a fresh pasta cookery course and ate the results later that evening on his pretty terrace. Michael goes the extra mile to ensure guests have a good time. Great apartment in a handy location for exploring Umbria.
