Spacious, private, and beautiful lodging in heart of lovely medieval Montefalco

  • 5 of 5

We loved our lodging in Montefalco, both because the Benozzo apartment and its terrace were lovely and because the town was a wonderful, charming, and quiet place to stay for visiting Umbria. The apartment is restored space true to the medieval roots of the building and town; it is very nicely furnished, clean, secure, private, and well-appointed. We discovered two really good restaurants - Foresteria Alzatura and Coccorone, each a short walk from the apartment. The first was particularly good, with outstanding, original dishes. I recommend that the traveler get clear directions in advance from the host about how and where to meet, with a good pdf map of Montefalco and the location of the gate and apartment. There are four gates (Portas) to this tiny town with some very narrow streets and sharp turns. GPS alone may not get you to the right spot. Once we figured it out, we had no problem using this spot as a jumping off point to visit other locations in Umbria. We would strongly recommend it.

A lovely restful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay with 2 small children and enjoy Umbria and Montefalco. The apartment is beautiful and the pool and shaded courtyard were a delightful retreat from the intense afternoon sun. Benozzo is close to the main plaza where the girls could run around while we sat at an outside cafe to enjoy a late afternoon glass of wine. The apartment is comfortable and roomy.

It would have been helpful if a few things such as laundry detergent and some olive oil were stocked in the unit. We had to buy both for just one use.

I will stay at Benozzo again when I am in the area.

Repos, tranquilité, charme,...

  • 5 of 5

Pour la troisième fois à Montefalco, pour la deuxième fois à Arco Romanico! La vieille ville de Montefalco est magnifique pour y rester au moins une semaine. C'est charmant, les gens sont accueuillants, les restos sont très bons. Nous sommes venus cette année avec nos deux enfants de 4 ans et 1 ans. Pour eux c'est génial. Il n'y a quasi pas de voitures dans le centre et dans les petites ruelles, il y a beaucoup d'ombre. Ils peuvent marcher et jouer librement. En été il y a la piscine...

Depuis Montefalco il faut très peut de temps pour arriver dans d'autres villes magnifiques et différentes: Trevi, Bevagna, Foligno, Spoleto,... Sympa pour les enfants et idéal pour les parents question culture et gastronomie.

Il ya deux ans nous étions dans l'appartement Perugino. C'était très bien. Cette fois ci nous étions dans Benozzo. Celui-ci est légèrement plus grand mais à mon sence plus agréable car plus lumineux. L'appartement et le patio sont forts agréables. On se sent vraiment dans le centre d'un endroit très pittoresque.

Nous avons été accueuilli chaleureusement a une heure assez tardive. Tout était prévu pour notre fille d'un ans. Ce n'est pas le tout grand luxe mais ce n'est pas pour cela que nous venons. Le charme de la maison est énorme.

Nous remercions Francesco le propriétaire pour sa flexibilité! (Nous n'avons pas su venir l'année passée et il nous a gardé notre réservation, tout a été fait pour accueuillir nous deux enfants, nous sommes venus un jour plus tôt que prévu et la nuit nous a été offert gracieusement.)

Ciao Francesco, nous reviendrons une 3ième fois avec certitude!

An Umbrian Hill Town Gem

  • 5 of 5

L'Arco Romanico was exactly what we wanted for our holiday, a quiet place in the heart of a historic and beautiful town, with access to good restaurants and places of interest nearby.

We stayed in the Benozzo apartment which was spacious, comfortable, and well equipped & maintained. We enjoyed the traditional architecture and the wonderful and charming views from each window. Although we were too early in the season to enjoy the pool, the spacious garden was a lovely place to soak up the spring sunshine. During the summer it would be a perfect spot for alfresco meals.

Francesco, Edyta and Martin were all very helpful and responsive. Francesco's family have lived in Montefalco for generations and it was fascinating to learn a bit about the town's history from one whose family has lived it first hand!

Montefalco is a wonderful place. It's hill top location allows sweeping 360 degree views across the valley to hills and mountains beyond. The traditional stone architecture, maze of cobbled lanes, and bells heard from various ancient churches create a timeless atmosphere. It's location has not been marred by the intrusion of large motorways, although it is close enough to the road system to give easy access.

A one minute walk up the cobbled lane from L'Arco Romanico is the spacious and attractive Piazza which is home to excellent places to dine and buy local food & wine. There are also places to sit out and enjoy all the Medieval civic architecture while trying the variations of espresso coffee that the Italians do so well. Despite all this, it is uncrowded and unhurried. We walked up on Sunday morning to see the children from the nearby church playing a ball game in the middle of the Piazza.

The town and area is well endowed with Franciscan heritage and Renaissance art. We enjoyed learning about the life and influence of St Francis on the region and far beyond. The Gozzoli Benozzo frescoes in the local museum provided a history of his life which complemented our trip to Assisi, about a half hour's drive away. Spoleto is another beautiful and fascinating place within easy reach of Montefalco. We even made a day trip to Rome from our base at L'Arco Romanico.

For us, Montefalco had great balance, there was enough, but not too much! All the things you want easily accessible, but without noise, hurry, or crowding. A real gem!

Charming accommodation and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent just over two weeks in the Benozzo apartment, one of three apartments in a secluded and quiet courtyard with a lovely garden and small pool. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodation, which turned out to be everything the description said and more. The apartment is very well maintained, and any questions or requests we had were promptly attended to by Edyta and her husband, who look after the property. The owner, Francesco, was extremely helpful prior to our arrival with excellent suggestions about things to do in the local area and restaurants to visit. We are already thinking about a return trip to Montefalco and would certainly consider staying in this apartment again.
