Preci

Walking – circular walks can be done from the village in the Monti Sibillini National Park, one of Italy's most beautiful and unspoilt. A paradise for walkers with countless trails criss-crossing the hills and passing through villages virtually unchanged since medieval times. It's a haven for wildlife and the famous Piano Grande, a high mountain plain that becomes a tapestry of wild flowers and orchids in the spring and early summer, is not to be missed with excellent trails to suit all levels of walkers.

Other family activities – mountain or road cycling, mule trekking, horse riding, river rafting, kayaking, indoor ice-skating and trout fishing. The chairlift to the summit of Monte Bove (2000 metres) is particularly popular and offers breathtaking mountain views and great walking or cycling down.

Adventure sports - rock climbing, canyoning, white water rafting, paragliding and hang gliding.
We can help arrange and provide information for the activities including maps and guides.

Bars and restaurants:
Agli Scacchi Hotel. Serves very good traditional Umbrian food. There's a shady terrace and a nice little bar/coffee area overlooking the pool. Pizza, pasta, meats and local trout. 2 minute walk.
La Taverna del Gusto. Traditional food. Seating outside in Summer. Also nice for a morning coffee, pastry or evening beer. 1 minute walk.
Il Castoro Restaurant. Great atmosphere and Italians flood here to indulge in the freshest truffles that the owner collects from around Preci himself. The truffle omelette is legendary as is the wild boar stew cooked with juniper berries. Pasta focuses on truffles and porcini mushrooms. The huge wood fired pizzas are perfect food for kids. House wine is around 4 euros a litre. Il Castoro is always lively, very Italian and really good value. 10 minute walk.

“A wonderful holiday in a beautiful setting with all the home comforts.”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2012

We spent a lovely 10 days at Casa Rosabianca. The setting is lovely with wonderful views from an idyllic village. The villa is great and has all the home comforts and was a perfect size for our family of five and two grandparents. The children loved wandering down to the pool on their own and we enjoyed sitting and enjoying cocktails overlooking the pool in the small local hotel. Umbria is spectacular with wonderful scenery and beautiful hilltop villages at every turn. Not to be missed are Castelluccio, Speleto, Norcia, Assisi and Orvieto and so many more. Loads of information in the house of things to do and places to eat. The local food is fabulous and very cheap! Thanks for a lovely time. We'll definitely be back.

“A beautiful getaway with stunning views and quiet picturesque location.”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2011

We were a party of five women who were celebrating a special birthday. We didn't want to drive and were quite happy to stay local, walk into the lower town, use the wonderful pool at the hotel and relax. Between the five of us the cost of taxis was reasonable and Barbara very kindly contacted a local firm to arrange pick up from the airport. We were greeted at the house and every effort was made to make us feel welcome. The house is beautiful, split over three floors, providing plenty of space for the five of us. Having the patio area across the street was an added bonus and compensated for the lack of a garden. We used the local bars and restaurants and found them to be very friendly and good value. The staff at the hotel were particularly accommodating and we basically had the pool to ourselves. We enjoyed lunch and dinner of local, freshly cooked food. Of an evening we would walk into the lower town and sit outside the friendly bar and enjoy a glass of Prosecco before heading back up the hill for dinner. One evening we took a taxi into Norcia, a very pretty town and well worth a visit. This isn't a holiday for clubs and nightlife but perfect if you are happy for a quiet, relaxing holiday. We had a wonderful few days and are definitely hoping to return; I think it's my birthday next!

“So much more than we expected”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2011

Excellent standard of accomodation - feels like a real home with lots of room for our family of four. Made to feel very welcome, being met at the property on arrival was very useful to get local insight. Great experience to stay in an Umbrian hill top village, the house is right in the centre (but you don't feel overlooked at all) with fantastic views across the valley. You leave you car outside the village and walk to the house - means area round the house was safe for kids. Shop and restaurant (& icecream parlour) are only few minutes walk and it is lovely to participate in the local community. Local hotel swimming pool provides outside space and it was largely just us there - our kids (5 & 8) could swim, the pool area was a perfect size. The surrounding area is beautiful - more rugged than Tuscany - natioanal park for walking, rafting etc is convinient. It is a trip to get to any cities but we visited Spoleto, Assissi and the beach near Ancona. A fantastic holiday.
