Description

Looking for a cosy and elegant base to relax and explore the beautiful landscapes, tastes and cultural heritage of Umbria - the region nicknamed "The Green Heart of Italy"? We're glad you found this page, and ready to welcome you!

"Casa Foresti" is a 4-rooms, 120sq/m apartment with garden inside a 14th century building (renovated in 2009); it's located in the historic centre of Bettona, a lovely medieval village resting on top of a green hill coated in olive groves. Completely furnished, equipped with Wi-Fi ADSL and everything you might need, it's just the perfect house for your stay, offering relax in the typical barrel-valuted living room; fun while trying your cooking skills with real italian food in the lovely kitchen; a beautiful dining room with wide windows overlooking the ancient etruscan walls, and a small terrace on the walls for an afternoon tea.

Getting around

Bettona is quite close to every interesting destination in Umbria: it is just 16 km far from Assisi, home of St. Francis and UNESCO Heritage Site; 5 km from Torgiano, renown worldwide for its precious wines; 10 km from Deruta, famous for its ceramics; 17 km from Bevagna, the town that turns medieval for the whole month of June; 20 km from Perugia, largest city in the region, seat of a large University for foreigners and with a young nightlife in its historic center; 22 km from Spello, 24 km from Montefalco, 26 km from Foligno, 33 km from Todi, 55 from Spoleto, each one a different medieval pearl to explore; and 45 km from the shores of Trasimeno Lake and its wonderful tiny islands.

Interaction with guest

On top of this, we - the Foresti family - really enjoy to get to know a little our guests by offering something to make their stay unique. If we have time and if you wish to, we'll be glad to show you around some hidden spots in the local area, have you over for dinner or take you to a local winery, cheesemaker, restaurant or cultural event - obviously free of charge! My son Francesco speaks very good English and my wife Anna is available if you'd like to get some Italian cooking lessons. We'll do our best to make you feel really at home - of course without being invasive - so feel free to ask us about interesting destinations nearby, as well as restaurants or other local attractions! We live just upstairs from the apartment...

“An exceptional place to experience Umbria”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2012

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.

“Fantastic Holiday”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2012

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”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2012

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!

“An authentic Italian Hill Town experience, in a wonderful flat, with gracious hosts.”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2012

This flat in the lovely very small hill town of Bettona was a treat! It is well appointed with all that we needed. There was a lovely outdoor seating area with a nice view. This place was perfect for our family during our trip to Italy. I think that the best part though was the hosts. Francesco made our trip there and all the details like parking very easy. Then he and Anna took us on a drive and walk at sunset to look at Bettona and Assisi from a distance. This is the kind of experience that I hope for when we travel - they were warm, genuine, welcoming and so helpful. Anna helped us plan our last couple of days in Rome with an itinerary and map! We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Our stay in the Foresti Family flat was a highlight of our trip to Italy.
