“A welcoming, historical house with stunning views and modern conveniences”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I've just returned with my extended family from a 15-day holiday in this lovely house. It would be nice to suggest some improvements for the owners, but I cannot think of any. This is just perfect place to spend relaxing days in a tranquil environment of a remarkable medieval town. It is also optimally located with respect to the better-known Umbrian cities, Assisi and Perugia as well as a number of smaller nearby towns of great interest: Spello, Cubbio, Todi, Spoleto, Deruta etc. ( you need a car to explore these, though). Casa Foresti itself is well equipped and the hosts, Anna and Georgio, really make you feel at home.

“Wonderful apartment in a beautiful town”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I just came back from this apartment in which we stayed for 2 weeks. I remember reading the reviews before booking and wondering if the place really could be as good as described. Now afterwards I can say it really was - and perhaps even better.

Anna and Giorgio, the owners, are warm and friendly people, who really want to help make your stay perfect. The apartment is beautiful, clean and everything works well (except the WiFi-connection is a problem from time to time). The apartment even has a lovely garden of it's own and a terrace where you can watch the sun going down behind the hills.

Bettona is very nice small town. It has a couple of restaurants, two cafeterias and a little grocery shop. The views are amazing.

I would recommend this apartment for anyone who wants to enjoy Umbria in a peaceful, beautiful town. It's also suitable for kids and elderly people (we had both with us). We hope to return there soon!

“Perfect in every way!”

Giorgio and Anna have done a remarkable job restoring this apartment. The brick ceiling, antique furniture and the wood doors with beautiful glass panels work together to create an exceptional space. The place has a style that seems to belong in Bettona. Bettona is a quiet village, but has several fine restaurants, and is large enough to encourage short meandering in the evening. It is a good base from which to explore other hill towns in the area. But it is the hospitality of Anna and Giorgio that makes this place so very special. They made our stay in Umbria a true travel experience. We highly recommend staying here.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed @ Casa Foresti for 7 days in Oct of this year (2013). I can't say enough about the charm & comfort of this apartment or the quiet, ancient hill town in lies in.

1st, Bettona - Here is an Umbrian hill town that is still lived in. The medieval lanes & rambling alleys are just what you came to Umbria to find. Unlike some better known towns however, this one is truly lived in. It's 300 inhabitants really live & work here, (or commute out & return) There is only one hotel, a 4 star relais/restaurant buried quietly at one end of the central piazza. The one tour bus we saw in a week, dropped it's passengers there for one Sat. night & they were gone by morning. The rest of the week we saw only the townsfolk & we seemed to be the only strangers in the whole town. The city walls are intact, & cobbled lanes & tiny piazzas look "lived in", rather than groomed for tourism. There are 2 cafes, 3 restaurants, 1 grocery/deli, & a surprisingly good museum recording the history of the city. If you have a small car, there is actually not problem to park but bigger cars will have the usual problems in the tiny, winding streets. To my mind, it was perfect.
2nd, CasaForesti

Casa Foresti- We arrived @ 4:00 but the previous renters were late leaving so the apt. wasn't ready. Giorgio took us in his car shopping... 1st to the cheese co-op, then to the produce co-op, & finally to the local wine co-op where he bought us a bottle of his favorite local white. His charming wife Anna had the place spotless when we returned. Entry is through a locked gate, to the back of the Large stone house, built right into the old city walls. The rooms have brick vaulted ceilings & stone or polished wood floors. the small kitchen is well equipped, the 2 bedrooms are comfy, the Wi-Fi works well in the kitchen/living room, but not in the bedrooms. (thick stone walls) There are 2 baths & washer / dryer. The real gem is the glazed, sun room / entry and the exquisite small patio looking out over the wooded valley from the top of the wall. several steps up take you to a small stone raised part of the wall with table & chairs & 180° views. Even in Oct, the plantings in the patio were lush. One of the bedrooms has french doors opening directly onto the patio. One wall of the main room is lined with guide books, maps, & dictionaries in multiple languages. Giorgio & Anna & Francesco (their son) were the perfect hosts, just available enough to be helpful but never intrusive. We soon had the feeling that the apt. was our home. To sum up...I had a lump in my throat & my wife actually let out a small sob as we drove through the town gate & down the mountain for the last time. I think that says it all.

“Casa Foresti, home from home”

Our family of four (kids 15 and 12 years old) have enjoyed our stay in Casa Foresti in Bettone. The beautiful appartment is well equiped and all you might need is provided by the fantastic hosts. Good beds and very spacious appartment with wifi. The village Bettone is beautiful, you feel like living in an open air museum. We enjoyed a concert in the church, the winemuseum in Torgiano, playing tennis, we visited Foligno, Assisi and Perugia and the great Isola Polvese in the Trasimeno lake twice. Our last night we enjoyed a village fiesta with pizza and water melon together with our hosts, a lovely evening that especially the kids liked very much.
