Additional Location Information
The nearest supermarket is approximately 1km away, whilst the nearest restaurant / cafe is about 1.5km. The old Medieval town of Foligno is the nearest main town which has a wealth of good quality restaurants and bars. Particularly recommended is the Ristorante 'Officina del Gusto' and 'Ristorante al Chiaro di Luna.'
Just 2-3 kms away, Foligno is a vibrant town with plenty to see and do. Every year since 1946 the city of Foligno has held the Joust of the Quintana, reliving the atmosphere of a horse tournament first held during the carnival of 1613. There are 3 annual joust events - the Baroque Carnival, the June Challenge and the September Rematch. On each occasion, 10 horsemen, each representing one of the cities wards, face off in a ring joust. Participants are dressed in costumes from the 1600s, creating a colourful and evocative atmosphere. It's a wonderful event. In September and October there is also a fantastic gastronomic event created around the queen of Italian cuisine - pasta! The piazzas, bars and palaces are filled with stands and tasting stations, dinners and shows. One of the newer annual events is 'Young Jazz' held between 25 and 29 May this year, an opportunity for visitors to the city to hear some wonderful music from both young and old bands and musicians. For those of you with children, don't miss the Sant 'Eraclio Carnival, held every February and March, where the whole family will be entertained by the colourful parades of floats, acrobats and street artists. The property is ideally located for exploring further afield too. Perugia, the regions largest art city, is just 30 minutes drive away, whilst the beautiful city of Orvieto which has held a unique fascination among tourists for years, is just 15 minutes away. The magical city of Assisi is also half an hour by car whilst Gubbio, where you feel like you literally have stepped back in time, is an hour from the apartments. Even those less well known towns and villages in Umbria hold some wonderful surprises whether it's a church, a palace, musuem or fresco... It's a great area to explore. Some of the best cities in Tuscany are also accessible from the property - Arezzo is 90 minutes whilst Siena is approximately 2 hours by car. You certainly won't be stuck for things to do during your stay!
The nearest airport is Perugia which is about 30 mins away. Ryanair fly here from London Stansted. If you don't mind travelling with Ryanair, the airline also flies to Ancona which is 1 hour away. Alternatively, guests can fly to Rome or Florence which are 2 hours away. Pisa is also possible but is a 3 hour car journey. There is a railway station 2-3 kms away in Foligno which is on a direct line to Rome, Perugia & Ancona. Transfers from the train station to the property can be arranged.
The coast is about 2 hours drive away. A 2 hour drive North East will take you to the city of Ancona whilst slightly south of this but also easy to get to is the renowned vacation resort of Civitanova Marche.
There are plenty of opportunities to play golf nearby. Not to be missed is the Antognolla Golf Club designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones Jr. It's an unforgettable golf experience with dramatic cliff lined fairways, beautiful lakes and stunning views of the medieval castle and countryside. Alternatively, also 45 minutes away, is the Golf Club Perugia which also offers guests a golf school catering for all ages from 6 upwards. There is also the Lamborghini Golf Club an hour away.
