This lovely little hotel is run by the charming mother and daughter team of Donatella and Eleonora whose passion for the history and traditions of their medieval hilltop town of Gualdo Tadino is infectious. Lying near both Gubbio and Assisi, it is a great base from which to visit the art cities of Umbria, but there is much to see in the town itself and for the more active there are many lovely walks of various difficulties.

Apartments are in the town centre 300 metres from the main hotel building and have separate twin/double bedroom, private shower, television and fully equipped kitchenette. Half board included.

The towns of Assisi, Perugia, Arezzo and Gubbio are easily reached by car and hold some of the most important art of the Italian Renaissance.
Tuscan and Umbrian cuisine is full of hearty fare; bread, wine and olive oil, important to all Italians, are sacred here! Most dishes are very simple but pasta often has rich sauces. Try panzanella, a tasty summer salad with bread and vegetables or ribollita, a filling bowl of bean soup.
The famous Siena Palio takes place on 2nd July and 16th August every year and draws crowds from all over the world. Nothing beats the medieval pageantry of the historical procession, followed by the craziest horse race in the world. Bareback riders in medieval costume hurtle around the main square of Siena at full pelt, cheered on by excited spectators.
