Hospitality

Hospitality!Not just a B&B! We also cook for our guests and fans, Umbria has many culinary traditions, and we like to introduce you to this kitchen. Serving a 3 course dinner in the diningroom…or even better on the terrace while the sun sets.

Location

Casa di Montone is located nearby Citta di Castello, where 4 italian regions come together: Tuscany, Umbria, le Marche and Emilia-Romagna. The Tiber/Tevere runs trough our valley, and this means the region has been propular for centuries. The region is full of small villages, renaissance city’, abbey’s and churches. You will find beautiful fresco’s, altars and quiet abbey lanes that are still visited by local church goers.

Citta di Castello is a well kept medieval city, with palaces, a cathedral full of fresco’s and a very special crypte and some amazing musea. Its a vibrant city with lots of shops, terraces and good food, and only a 10 minute drive from Casa del Montone.

Lago di Trasimeno with old towns and nice beaches, Cortona, Arezzo, Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi…all just a 30-40 minute drive. So much culture and nature. There is a beautiful hiking area just 15 minutes away, with trails, old abbey’s , small falls and lots of wildlife. Even at the Casa you are likely to see deer, wild boars, foxes and badgers, en you wake up tot he sound of the Hop, the nightinggale or the woodpecker.
