We had a wonderful holiday in the Monte Cucco area. Franco was an excellent host - he was very kind and helpful to us. He is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us information about the nature and parks activities we could do. He also runs tours of the grotto caves and we joined a tour one day - it was a great experience! The apartment is excellent value for money - it's really spacious and easily sleeps 4. It's very well furnished, comfortable, peaceful and with amazing views of the Umbrian hills around. Fossato is a gorgeous hilltop village - it's very quiet, but perfect if you want to just relax and take in the atmosphere. There are good walks in the surrounding area, and supermarkets and other stores are nearby. We came without a car, but I'd recommend hiring one to get to the best walks and mountains of the park. Umbria is a beautiful region & we'd love to go back again! Thank you Franco!
Abbiamo avuto una meravigliosa vacanza nella zona di Monte Cucco. Franco era un eccellente padrone di casa - è stato molto gentile e disponibile a noi. Lui è molto ben informato sulla zona e ci ha fornito informazioni circa la natura e le attività parchi potremmo fare. Corre anche tour delle grotte grotta e fa parte di un tour di un giorno - è stata un'esperienza fantastica! L'appartamento è ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo - è davvero spaziosa e può ospitare comodamente 4. E 'molto ben arredato, confortevole, tranquillo e con una vista mozzafiato sulle colline umbre intorno. Fossato è un borgo collinare splendido - è molto tranquilla, ma perfetto se si vuole rilassarsi e godersi l'atmosfera. Ci sono buone passeggiate nella zona circostante, e supermercati e altri negozi si trovano nelle vicinanze. Siamo venuti senza una macchina, ma io consiglio di noleggiare uno per ottenere i migliori passeggiate e le montagne del parco. L'Umbria è una regione bellissima e ci piacerebbe tornarci! Grazie Franco!
