Le Fornaci is a beautiful, relaxing location. Simone, the host, is most kind and extremely helpful.
We were 10 days in apartment Il Ceraso, which was spacious, comfortable, super hygienic.
We chose for continental breakfast and had every morning a large offer of ham, salami, cheese, yoghurt, cake, fruit...
Twice a week we had the possibility to eat on the spot and enjoyed excellent traditional dishes, with the best pasta, meat and desserts ever, in very copious portions.
If we return to Umbria, we will return to Le Fornaci.
Owner and staff very helpful, friendly and hospitable, food of excellent quality, clean and welcoming location, great value for money. Place penalized by a position a bit 'uncomfortable but of an Unexpected tranquility.

Beautiful, cared for in every detail, extremely comfortable and clean! Simone, the landlord, is very kind and considerate, puts guests at ease and with a maximum availability. And then ... it's a real farm: fresh strawberries in the morning directly from the garden! Melons and much more! Delicious and soft homemade cakes. Peaches and genuine tomatoes, with authentic flavors. All good and fragrant! Including the environments. You can not not come back!
