About This Listing
Bed and Breakfast Le 4 Stagioni offers you a place to unwind. We are situated high up in a protected woodland, overlooking the vast Tiber valley with views of Perugia and Assisi in the distance. There are 6 large guest rooms on site, each with en-suite bathroom. The facilities include a swimming pool with a panoramic view, a sauna, a Jacuzzi and a small gym. You can spend your time here relaxing and shedding your work-a-day cares.
Umbria, known as the Green Heart of Italy, certainly lives up to its nickname. Here you will find forested rolling hills abounding with wildlife, plants and animals. These hills overlook a wide, fertile plain, dotted with farms and some modern towns. Umbria is famous for its walled hill towns, some, like Bettona, of Etruscan origin.
Bettona, itself, is a small, walled town, one of ‘I Borghi piu belli d ‘Italia’ (One of the most beautiful small towns in Italy). It gained this accolade in 2007. This hill town, far away from the package holiday route, is centrally located providing the ideal stepping off point for visits to some of the most famous cities of Italy.
Bed and Breakfast Le 4 Stagione is a place where you can find relaxation, space, culture and nature. We are very pleased to welcome our guests and invite them to share our peaceful piece of Umbria. We try to make our guests feel at home without intruding on their privacy.
For the charm of a Bed and Breakfast combined with the services of a hotel, join us here at Bettona.

Dolce far niente (Busy Doing Nothing)
The quiet woodland surroundings will encourage you to do absolutely nothing! And Le 4 Stagioni has all the facilities you need to do just that. Start the morning with a cup of coffee or tea, and freshly baked bread. Walk along the garden paths to the swimming pool (perhaps identifying the wild flowers in their seasons) where your sun chair will be waiting for you. As you sit in the sun, enjoying the breathtaking view, the essential oils of the lavender and rosemary that surround the pool, will help you to relax. If the sun is too hot, you can take a refreshing dip.
Want some shade? Then take advantage of one of the hammocks you will find in the olive grove.
Hiking and Biking
The peace and quiet of the surrounding 120 hectares of protected woodlands are particularly enticing to hikers and bikers. There are marked footpaths, but Le 4 Stagione can also provide local maps. And, the unmade roads the traverse that area are a real challenge for mountain bikers! If mountain bikes aren’t your thing, then there are miles of quiet ‘lanes’ where you can practice your hill climbing technique.
B&B Le 4 Stagioni is located on Monte Bandita, one of the hills just outside Bettona in the green heart of Umbria. The Villa stands in 6000 m2 of private grounds surrounded by forest. From the villa you can have a lovely walk around the property and the forest, find a nice spot to view the sun set, or just laze in a hammock. But foremost Le 4 Stagioni is an excellent place from which to start a daytrip, visiting Umbria, the unrivaled Tuscan scenery or one of the nearby cities of art. If you venture a bit further, you can find the famous cities of Rome and Florence, which are still within easy reach. For those who are not in a hurry and want to be surprised by a great view, you can take the B roads that wander all over the area and discover what Umbria has to offer. For the holidaymaker who wants to be a bit more active golf, fishing, horse riding, kayaking, hang gliding, hiking or biking can be found in the area. Information about all of these is available at the villa.
About the Host, Anneke
I am from Holland and I live in Umbria since 2006. When I saw this house the first time, I immediately felt in love for it. I travelled all around the world, but for me this is the best place to live. I like to take care of people, cook for them and show them all the lovely things Umbria is known for, so that is why I started this B&B. So please feel at home in my B&B and let me help you to make your own fabulous tour through Umbria by car, bike, vespa or even on foot.
