Activities/Attractions: Umbria is a region of Central Italy, bordered by Tuscany to the west, the Marche to the east and Lazio to the south. This region is mostly hilly or mountainous.

In the true heart of Italy, the region is not touched by the sea, and the territory is one-third mountains and the rest hills covered with olive trees and vineyards, and widely acknowledged among the most beautiful landscapes in Italy.

Comprising the largest lake in central Italy, Lake Trasimeno, the territory is suited to agriculture, the main produce being cereals, tobacco, sugar-beet, sunflowers and vineyards. Thanks to the temperate climate, the beautiful landscapes and the religious, cultural and artistic wealth of many cities like Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto, Perugia, tourism is also an important resource.

Umbria is an ideal territory to move around in Central Italy, to reach beautiful places, and visit the main sights in the " Beautiful Italy". If you stay for enough days in the Umbria you'll notice that the environment is unpolluted and far from chaos, and the cuisine is excellent.

"Four of us (the space could easily accommodate 6-10) stayed at Villa Rosy and it was a magical week. The views, the fresh produce, the wonderful kitchen and outdoor eating spots, the pool, the roses, and all the facilities. I cannot imagine a more wonderful spot to spend time with friends and/or family. Although we enjoyed all our hill town day trips, we almost hated to leave Villa Rosy for them. Coming "home" was always a treat."

"This was our first extended visit to Umbria and we found the apartment in Rasiglia to be a perfect base for exploring this lovely area. Our hosts, Paolo, Luciana and Corinna were the best we have encountered in our travels. They made us feel right at home with their generous welcome pack, helpful information and kind invitation to participate in the olive harvest. During our two week stay we found the apartment to be very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. We couldn't have had a better introduction to Umbria, and know we will be back."

"For the third time we spend our holiday in Umbria, in one of the wonderful residences of Paolo. Two years we stayed in Villa Rosy and this year in residence Vallemela, Montesano. A wonderful stay. Excellent accommodation that gives you the possibility to enjoy even more the environment so wonderful you can not express in words. I'm sure we'll meet again!"

"I cannot say how highly we rated this property, it is a real joy to have stayed there. It's highly specified with everything we would expect at a hoe from home. The peaceful and rural landscape are exactly what anyone needs to unwind from a hectic and often stressful modern life. We will definitely return and our plans are steering toward staying at Vallemela in Montesano next summer. A great base, a great welcome - thanks for being there!"

"This place is really fantastic. We spent three weeks and enjoyed it so much, that we simply know we will come back. It's not only the superb situation of this house with its view into the landscape and the colourful nature around. Especially the absolutely warm and friendly hosting of the Tonti family make you feel like home from the very first day. So we have felt like the "Lords of Montefalco" for some weeks and we long to be back as soon as possible."

"I had a wonderfully relaxing week at the apartment which was comfortable and just exactly what i had been looking for. Easy bus connections to Foligno and beyond."

We offer the following three self-catering holiday apartments on the hills near Foligno:

  • The Residence Menotre, originally an ancient 15th century tower, is located beneath the enclosure wall of the ancient Trinci castle, which Vanda Tonti restored to its original beauty in 1991. Only 18 km away from Foligno, this Residence is very central if you want to visit the main artistic Umbrian cities.

"Villa Rosy far exceeded our expectations! The Tonti family was more than helpful and hospitable. My son and his friends who were with us had great times running through the olive grove and up the mountain slope. We had some of our best meals made with the San Potente olive oil at the Villa. The view were gorgeous, especially the sunset! The only thing I would change about our visit--is to make it longer. We had a wonderful time and we are already planning our return visit and trying to get all our friends to come with us!"

"Just back after a wonderful week staying at Residence Menotre. Set in stunning scenery it was the ideal setting to explore Umbria. Our host Paolo was most welcoming the welcome pack a nice touch too. We would love to return in the near future and would thoroughly recommend to anybody."

"We have stayed at B&B's around the world and Villa Rosy is THE BEST! The setting is unbelievable - in the middle of an olive grove, overlooking Assisi. Add to that a beautiful house, gracious hosts and a bottle of San Potente Olive Oil, and the result is magical. We had a family reunion that will never be forgotten. We look forward to being guests at the Tonti's other properties."
