The space
Hello traveler! Looking for a cosy and elegant base to relax and explore the beautiful landscapes, tastes and cultural heritage of Umbria - the region nicknamed "The Green Heart of Italy"? We're glad you found this page, and ready to welcome you!

/// Please note: if you don't find availability for the dates you need, please consider our other wonderful apartment in the same building... just click on our profile picture on the right and scroll down to find it under "listings". Thank you! ///

Guest access
"Little Casa Foresti" is a 2-rooms, 50sq/m apartment with a sunny terrace and a large garden inside a 14th century building (renovated in 2009); it's located in the historic centre of Bettona, a lovely medieval village resting on top of a green hill coated in olive groves. Finely furnished and decorated, equipped with Wi-Fi, washing machine and (we hope!) everything you might need in your house, it's just the perfect place for your stay.

Our comfortable holiday house, with room for up to 3 people, is the ideal option for a pleasant stay in Umbria, ensuring you moments of rest and relax between visits to the precious historic and cultural jewels of which Umbria is rich, either in the well-known cities like Assisi and Perugia and the “minor” centres to discover.

Other things to note
There is a flight of stairs to climb to reach the apartment. Sometimes our cat Guido may come visit you on the terrace, but they do not enter the house :)

Location

Bettona, Umbria, Italy

Bettona, is a beautiful small village of 300 people of Etruscan (4th century BC) and medieval origin, set on a hill overlooking Perugia and Assisi. Although tiny, in town you will find three restaurants, two bars, a small grocery shop with homemade food, a deli shop, a city museum, an international library, a multi-sport complex and, quite often, some social events where people gather to eat all together.

Bettona is quite close to every interesting destination in Umbria:
it is just 16 km far from Assisi, home of St. Francis and UNESCO Heritage Site;
5 km from Torgiano, renown worldwide for its precious wines;
10 km from Deruta, famous for its ceramics;
17 km from Bevagna, the town that turns medieval for the whole month of June;
20 km from Perugia, largest city in the region, seat of a large University for foreigners and with a young nightlife in its historic center;
22 km from Spello, 24 km from Montefalco, 26 km from Foligno, 33 km from Todi, 55 from Spoleto, each one a different medieval pearl to explore;
and 45 km from the shores of Trasimeno Lake and its wonderful tiny islands.

In one hour of travel by car it’s possible to reach every destination in Umbria. If you're up for longer travels, Siena, Firenze and Roma are all within two hours.

Hello, i'm Giorgio! After 33 years spent in Rome, where I studied and practiced law, I moved to Umbria to live in the countryside in a farming cooperative. After that, i managed a publishing house, a software house and a communication agency, while putting my heart and work in renewing the house in Bettona listed here on Airbnb. But I won't keep it all for me - I hope you'll come live it a little yourself! I am a lover of traveling as well, either in Italy, Europe or Asia; I enjoy human contact and me and my family (my wife Anna, my daughter Lucilla and my son Francesco) will be happy to guide our guests, if they wish, to discover the nature, history, art and enogastronomy of this beautiful region. Hope to see you here soon! Il mio nome è Giorgio, dopo 33 anni trascorsi a Roma dove ho studiato e esercitato la professione di avvocato, mi sono trasferito in Umbria per vivere in campagna in una cooperativa agricola. Terminata questa esperienza ho fondato e gestito una casa editrice, una software house, una attività di formazione e comunicazione. Una parte della mia casa, ristrutturata di recente è dedicata a ricevere come ospiti per brevi/lunghi periodi, turisti e viaggiatori di tutto il mondo. Io stesso amo ed ho amato molto viaggiare fin dalla mia giovinezza, sia in Italia che in Europa e in Asia. Amo molto leggere e ascoltare musica. Mi piacciono i contatti umani e amo guidare i miei ospiti, se lo desiderano, alla scoperta dei tesori naturalistici, storici, artistici, enogastronomici della bella Umbria. La mia casa vi aspetta. A presto!

On top of this, we - the Foresti family - really enjoy to get to know a little our guests by offering something to make their stay unique.
If we have time and if you wish to, we'll be glad to show you around some hidden spots in the local area, have you over for dinner or take you to a local winery, cheesemaker, restaurant or cultural event - obviously free of charge! My son Francesco speaks very good English and my wife Anna is available if you'd like to get some Italian cooking lessons. We'll do our best to make you feel really at home - of course without being invasive - so feel free to ask us about interesting destinations nearby, as well as restaurants or other local attractions! We live just downstairs from the apartment...
