The hills of Bettona offer a haven of peace and tranquility in untouched countryside, the perfect location for your holiday in Umbria.
Our estate ‘Villa Bettona" offers guests two forms of accommodation: a splendid detached villa with a tower over two floors, and a fully renovated stone farmhouse, set in the hills of the estate. These 7 hectares consist of splendid terraces mostly covered by olive trees, with breathtaking views of the entire Umbrian valley.
As well as olive trees, there are elms, poplars, oaks and fruit trees: cherries, apples, pears, hazelnuts, figs and prunes. The guests experience an amazing explosion of flowers in springtime and in the autumn, enjoy the fruit. A wood is part of the terraced estate, and its trees (chestnut, walnut, oak, beech and elm) are centuries old. It is an ideal place for those who want to spend a relaxing holiday under the influence of nature and the countryside. For real enthusiasts there is the opportunity for long walks and to pick wild asparagus (March-April-May), mushrooms, blackberries, chestnuts and walnuts (October-November). The estate is full of aromatic plants: rosemary, santoreggia, sage, bay and mint, whilst filling the air with their intense fragrance are roses, lavender and broom, which form a golden-yellow carpet over the surrounding hills when they flower from June to July. There are wild roses, and corbezzoli and pomegranates which produce beautiful red flowers in springtime, and in November and December their fruits decorate our tables. Pine trees give us precious pine nuts, that guests may gather and taste, also pine cones, which are used to decorate our houses during the Christmas period, together with holly and pungitopo which grows naturally in the wood.
The vast terrace of the estate (7 hectares) which surrounds the villa and farmhouse can be used for walks and horse-riding.
Thanks to its advantageous position, "Villa Bettona" offers a spectacular panoramic view of cities home to the highest culture and art: Perugia, Assisi, Spello and Foligno. Its central position means the many picturesque villages across the Umbria valley can easily be reached on foot or by bike.
Fresh, seasonal vegetables are always available to the guests, as well as a selection of traditional Umbrian produce which is produced on the estate: oil, jam, cheese, cold meats, legumes (Norcia lentils), Cannara onions and honey.
A splendid pool (15x6) surrounded by terracotta tiles and a large garden enclosed by a worked iron fence stands between the two properties and is for the exclusive use of the guests.
