Interaction with guests
On top of this, we - the Foresti family - really enjoy to get to know a little our guests by offering something to make their stay unique. If we have time and if you wish to, we'll be glad to show you around some hidden spots in the local area, have you over for dinner or take you to a local winery, cheesemaker, restaurant or cultural event - obviously free of charge! My son Francesco speaks very good English and my wife Anna is available if you'd like to get some Italian cooking lessons. We'll do our best to make you feel really at home - of course without being invasive - so feel free to ask us about interesting destinations nearby, as well as restaurants or other local attractions! We live just upstairs from the apartment...

About the neighbourhood
Bettona, is a beautiful small village of 300 people of Etruscan (4th century BC) and medieval origin, set on a hill overlooking Perugia and Assisi. Although tiny, in town you will find three restaurants, two bars, a small grocery shop with homemade food, a deli shop, a city museum, an international library, a multi-sport complex and, quite often, some social events where people gather to eat all together.
Getting around
Bettona is quite close to every interesting destination in Umbria: it is just 16 km far from Assisi, home of St. Francis and UNESCO Heritage Site; 5 km from Torgiano, renown worldwide for its precious wines; 10 km from Deruta, famous for its ceramics; 17 km from Bevagna, the town that turns medieval for the whole month of June; 20 km from Perugia, largest city in the region, seat of a large University for foreigners and with a young nightlife in its historic center; 22 km from Spello, 24 km from Montefalco, 26 km from Foligno, 33 km from Todi, 55 from Spoleto, each one a different medieval pearl to explore; and 45 km from the shores of Trasimeno Lake and its wonderful tiny islands.
