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

Here's a selection of local bars and restaurants:
Il Porcello Felice. Very pretty restaurant and bar with stunning views and a beautiful panoramic terrace overlooking one of the swimming pools. Very good traditional food. Wood fired pizzas, pasta, meats and trout. 2 minute walk.

“Family vacation”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2011

Perfect for a family or two families, hoping to have own peace, yet having possibility to enjoy facilities of the resort next to the Villa. Our important criteries were to have a house which is enough big for 2 families with kids: 10points., pool, or 2 with option for our youngest: 10points and most important, a nice football pitch with a artificular grass where we enjoyed football games and penalty shots everyday: 10 points! On top of all there was a nice restaurant with reasonable prices. Very nice all in one. Service and the helpness of the owners (who seem to run the resort aswell was above our expectations. We enjoyed our week in Umbria, and it was nice to see how different it is from the other side, tuscany, where we spent the next week. If you appreciate cleanness and how things are fixed you will like this house.
