Magnificent Montefalco - Montefalco, Umbria, Italy

High on the top of a hill, sits Montefalco, the perfect medieval village with a 360 degree panorama over the surrounding vallies. It is in the centre of beautiful Umbria and is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and rolling cultivated valleys. It seems as if every little meter of land is cultivated, with a grape vines as well as deep ploughed soil, sunflowers, cereals and many green fields, copses, and groves, all providing wonderful picnic possibilities.

You can make the village your own and linger under the vines and wander the fields with freedom, open a bottle of wine and munch a proscuitto panino as you drink in the green, ochre, umber and rich reds of the countryside.

From Montefalco, you can explore all of the most interesting and varied towns and villages, all different and all with secrets to discover. You can easily visit Spello, Bevagna, Trevi, Assisi, Todi, Spoleto, and many smaller villages. The roads are sealed and quick, and Montefalco stands at the top of the hill as a reference point from all directions. The nearest big town is Foligno.

Montefalco is famous for red wine, the deep rich red Sagrantino of world fame, grown only on the slopes in this area, and taken as an accompaniment for the wild foods of the area, wild boar, truffles, and porcini mushrooms and all the country seasonal vegetables such as wild asparagus.

It is a delightful town to visit, with its cream coloured natural stone, restored to a wonderful level of refinement, with narrow streets, most leading out to the amazing view over the stone walls and through the town portals, some with a tower, or fortifications. The local old people sit outside their houses and greet you; it is fun to find your way through the byways and back up to the piazza.

Most of the shops and wine bars are in the main road up to and down from the off-square piazza where there are enotecas and speciality food shops. You can try very different eating places from casual bars with 2 euro glasses of local wine including hearty food bites, to sophisticated wine bar restaurants with an international standard cuisine, traditionally cooked.

The local festivals run all Spring and Summer with the biggest one for the town in the first half of August. At all of these, you can eat fabulous cuisine cooked by the locals and then have a dance or listen to the music – everyone can join in with thew meal for a small payment. In September there are important wine festivals, all centred on the famous wine town - Montefalco.

April and May are warm and the land is fresh and green. June and July bring endless sunny days to explore the villages and countryside and mountains. August is hot and full of fun and festas. September is rich and plentiful and thoughts are always on wine and olives.

Other interesting things of note in the village include an art museum, renowned for Gozzoli and renaissance artists, and handmade linens and fabrics, a long tradition in the area. You can visit the factories and choose your own design.

Montefalco is an authentic, friendly and busy little place with a Monday market and plenty of bonhomie and welcome for non-Italians and those who don’t speak Italian. It is a living, active town with everything you need all in a short walking distance, including good sized supermarkets as well. The little orange buses around the hill are free, and the big blue buses take you further. Down in the valley there are many large shops and several commercial centres/malls with clothing and discount outlets.

Some of the extraordinary places to eat are L'Alchemista in the corner of the piazza where Patrizia, Claudio and all the family attend your every culinary wish, and Cristina is the fully qualified sommelier. The food is marvellous; light, hearty, local and seasonal, and a must.

Spiritdivino – divine spirit or spirit of wine, a clever play on the words, on the main street is international and very sophisticated and serves beautiful food, magnificently presented, and every wonderful locals delight such a pecorino cheese from the Chiacchiarini family with hand-milked sheep on the slopes nearby and further afield, in the high mountains in the summer where they eat the sweet pastures.

Pietro in the main street up to the piazza has a buzzy atmosphere and music and you can feel a real Italian in the dining room, with prosecco and limoncello to start and finish your meal.

A perfect place to be part of the village and taste the life, real, and old, and complete, and now! Italy as it was and is and will be. . . .

We arrived in the middle of their annual celebration of the celery crop. Had not appreciated that there were so many ways to eat celery but all great fun The apartment has wonderful views of the town which is a short walk up a steepish hill The mountain scenery half an hours drive to the south east is breathtaking. Bevangna a few miles to the west is a perfect little town with an excellent fish restaurant

                                                                                                    We really enjoyed staying here. It is very spacious and furnished throughout with a homely mixture of antiques (some very good) and 20th century vintage. The photos do not really do the property justice. The kitchen is actually quite roomy and very well equipped (like the rest of the apartment) except for a kettle. I loved the terrace with its wonderful views. Although right in the centre of town it is secluded and quiet in a courtyard off an alley off the main piazza. To get there: if coming off the autostrada from Perugia come off for Spello (not Spello Nord), follow sign for Centro at 1st roundabout, right at the second and left at the third signed Centro. As you come off turn sharp right in front of the enormous town gate. Follow road skirting round the town, continue on the road as it snakes up into the town. At the top turn left into Piazza della Repubblica. Go down to the far end from the Uffizzio Postale next to the steps and there is a narrow opening into the courtyard. The apartment is at the other end opposite you, up some steps. Highly recommended. Thank you Giorgio.

The balcony has amazing dynamic views - the panorama includes Trevi, the bustling valley below with trains and fast roads and peaceful hills in the distance. Trevi is 10 minutes walk up a steep hill and is a lovely village to walk around with places to eat and a few shops. The pool was perfect and Fiona and Richard were perfect hosts-discreet but also friendly and helpful. We spent some days without moving very far, but also went on trips to villages including Spello, Spoleto, Bevagna, Montefalco and Campello sul Clittuno. All very picturesque. In general we ate and drank very well when we went out….alot of pasta and truffles! The weather was hot and the only drawback was the evening mosquitos.
