Surrounding itineraries

To spend a peaceful holiday in a new, still undiscovered resort, we advise our Farm Holiday, situated in Cerqueto, Valfabbrica.

This little resort in the green and ancient Umbria, has a strategic position: in fact Umbria's most beautiful and artistically important cities, as Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, are just a short trip away. Our farm holiday is the ideal base not only for tourist itineraries in the Umbria's wonderful art filled cities but also for religious itineraries (Assisi, Norcia, Cascia,...), wine-and-food itineraries (Cantine Aperte, Wine Roads, Sagrantino Road, the Road of the Canticle), naturalist, historical, folkloristic itineraries (Calendimaggio in Assisi, Ceri Race in Gubbio, ...) and archaeological itineraries (for discovering the centres of Umbrian, Etruscan and Roman origin).

The pure nature of these places and their peace suggest long walks and mountain-bike rides, perhaps along the nearby river Chiascio where there is the old Franciscan path, used by St. Francis on his trips back and for from Assisi to Gubbio.

Bettona (Vettona in Latin) is an Italian town of 4,392 inhabitants in the province of the city has Etruscan origins, the only on the east bank of the Tiber, and the inhabitants of Bettona are cited in Pliny, NH III.114 (Vettonenses), and other ancient authors and inscriptions.
Perugia, the great "Guelf strong-hold" rises up in the region's heart, with its 5 storical quarters closed-in by its Etruscan town walls. These enormous bastions formed by cyclopic square masses, were constructed 22 centuries ago and are still visible for long stretches.
