On a hill, a 10 minute drive from Bettona, a small very quiet Etruscan walled village.

We love the surrounding nature, the view, the quiet friendly people, as well as the excellent wines and well prepared food. Umbria is the Italian region that attracts more and more people. People who are after its ancient mystic roots, its absolute tranquillity, its stunning natural treasures.
Embedded between the rural Le Marche, the world famous Tuscany region and the Italian capital of Rome, it's the place to be for many travelers who are looking for art, good food, nature and rest.
Italian holidays and festivals reflect Italian culture, history, and religious practices. Some Italian holidays are similar to those celebrated throughout many other parts of the world, while others are unique to Italy. Many Italian towns and villages celebrate the feast day of their "Santo Patrono" (patron saint), which differs from place to place.
In Italy, a "Sagra" is a local festival, very often involving food, and frequently a historical pageant and sporting events: when the sporting event is a historical recreation as well, such as a joust or a horse race in costume or Armour, it is called a "paleo".
The various Sagre almost always have their origins in old country fairs.
A Sagra is often dedicated to some specific local food, and the name of the Sagra often includes that food; the array of gastronomic specialties, covered across Italy is amazing.
