We stayed at Il Bastione for five nights at the start of our Italian honeymoon and were very happy with our choice. The peaceful location on a hill above Spello made for wonderful views. Our room - Camere nobiliari - was very comfortable, quiet and spacious. This room also had lovely views over the neighbouring region.
We chose the half-board option and the nightly five-course dinners were a magnificent feast- antipasto, soup, pasta, main course and dessert, accompanied by wine and bottled water. It was quite an effort to complete the meal! But it was difficult to resist, especially the delicious homemade pasta and desserts. A highlight for us, visiting in autumn, was the truffles included somewhere in our meal every night (in pasta, on bruschetta, with cheese).
The farmstead is a steep half-hour walk from Spello (on partially paved road). In an effort to prepare our appetites for the nightly feast, we walked in to town several nights to enjoy a predinner drink at an enoteca before the brisk uphill walk home. Other than that, we used the car to get to and from the farmstead.
Spello is ideally situated to explore Umbria - we visited Assisi, Montefalco, Orvieto, Perugia, Norcia, Gubbio and Castelluccio.
Jacupo was a delightful host and he and his father made us feel very welcome. We would love to return one day!
