About this listing
Have you ever slept in a 800 years old House?
Historical documents tell also of St. Francis among its walls! We we did B &B at the top of the Hill, in the silence of nature and a view that does not forget easily!
The position at the top of the hill, on the outskirts of a small medieval village of Civitella Benazzone, just 5 km from the exit of the E45, is an excellent starting point to visit Umbria.
A welcoming atmosphere, warm and vibrant colors, stunning views.
The rooms are on the first floor and away from the family home and offering privacy

Two of the main reasons why we have chosen to live in Civitella are firstly the marvellous position amongst hills, silence and tranquillity living in the natural countryside.
Secondly its strategic position near all the important centres of Umbria such as and other medieval villages.

Interaction with Guests
we live in the same house and if you need it, we are :)
Rispettarsi a vicenda.
Fumare si , ma non nelle camere odore è davvero sgradevole (lo dice una fumatrice).
Respect each other.
Smoking yes, but not in the rooms smell is really unpleasant (he says a smoker).
Smoking is permitted only in the balcony.
We spent 3 fantastic days within the B&B, we were warmly welcomed by Vesna and her husband. Everything is committed to relax starting from surrounding landscapes and continuing with rooms and breakfast zone with its big windows. They spent a lot of time to show us places to visit and dine spot in the area.
Keep your camera ready to shoot photos in the sunset... Amazing colours!
B&b situato in un luogo molto tranquillo e pittoresco ma comunque vicino a Perugia, Assisi e Gubbio. Vesna è molto disponibile e un'ottima padrona di casa. Consigliamo vivamente il soggiorno in questo rilassante b&b.
We stayed with Vesna for five days and enjoyed our time very much. Our room was cheerful and pleasently decorated but the view from the balcony was the best feature. The bathroom is shared with another room but this wasn't an issue as no other guests were staying. The breakfast room and terrace have a wonderful panoramic view across the valley just as the photos on the posting display. Vesna gave us very good breakfasts to suit our tastes. We hope to make a return visit sometime and will recomend this B&B to friends visiting Italy.
Vesna was a gracious host. Everything clean and neat. Breathtaking views. Like a photo. Only drawback after traveling all over southern Italy for weeks, my car was broken into in this quiet hilltop hamlet.
Vesna è stata una host meravigliosa! Purtroppo abbiamo avuto degli intoppi nel viaggio per raggiungere il B&B (gomma bucata poco prima di arrivare) e lei e suo marito sono stati gentilissimi ad aiutarci (anche con il cambio gomma!). Il posto è splendido e non risponde alla descrizione e alle foto perché è nettamente più bello dal vivo!
I rented this place for my parents so here is their review: Monastery was perfect, Vesna was charming, her husband was very pleasant, it was quiet, clean, the breakfast she made was great, the scenery was gorgeous and she had lots of ideas for side trips. Five out of five - would absolutely do it again and recommend her place to anyone.
This is a great place to get away from it all all. The views are beautiful, the accommodation very comfortable, and the host extremely friendly and helpful. We are happy to recommend it. Being out of Perugia, you need a car to stay here - but on the plus side, you have a headstart when travelling to towns like Spello and Assisi.

About the Host, Vesna
We are a family 'which represents a real mix of cultures, that is in love with Umbria and decided to "put the roots". Graduated in law Vesna I and my husband Imad in architecture, we love music so much music: as a result I teach folk dances Balkan and Eastern. My husband is organizer of musical events and madly enamored of photography. Place where we live gives us many inspirations, simple life in nature, a nice chat over coffee steaming ....
I find very satisfying to do this work because with our guests never forget the beauty of the places that surround us.
thank you, you are always welcome!!!
Siamo una famiglia che rapresenta un vero mix di culture che si è innamorato dell'umbria e deciso di metterci le radici. Laureata in giurisprudenza io Vesna; mio marito Imad in architettura, ci piace musica tanta musica, in conseguenza io insegno danze popolari balcaniche e orientali. Mio marito è organizzatore di eventi musicali ed e appasionato (website hidden) posto dove viviamo ci dà molte inspirazioni, vita semplice nella natura, una bella chiacchiera davanti al caffè fumante....
Trovo molta soddisfazione a fare questo lavoro perché grazie ai nostri ospiti non dimentico mai la bellezza dei posti che ci circondano.
grazie, siete sempre i benvenuti !!!!!!!!
