THE HILL OF GINESTRE
It is a residential complex of recent construction built on an ancient settlement at 500 meters above sea level, near the small medieval town of Montefranco, located between Terni and Spoleto, in the beautiful Umbria region defined "THE GREEN HEART OF ITALY" and more precisely in the Valnerina.

Also in the upper part of the Valnerina is the plateau of Castelluccio, with its fields covered with colorful flowers during the spectacular "blossoming perdiod". It is the perfect setting for hang gliders that converge here from all over Europe. The small and picturesque Lake iof Piediluco is a jewel set in the green, but also a famous canoeing center.
The nearby "Marmore Falls", the highest in Europe, is a monument to the wonders of nature and the ingenuity of man who created it in the third century BC.

We have spent three weeks in this wonderful home above Montefranco. The location is wonderful on the mountain and was perfect as home while we explored Umbria. We were received by the hostess Maria down in the village and escorted to the house. Breathtaking way up which never stopped fascinating us! We were relegated and always felt that we could ask and ask for help. There are only positive things to say about this accommodation, and I would therefore recommend it to those who want a place to hang out with each other. It takes about 20 minutes to go down to the village so I recommend having access to a car. We were four adults who enjoyed the stay.

A big praise for the beautiful and very clean kept house and a big thank you to Antonello and his family for the very warm and friendly reception. Everything was as described (or better!) Once again : it was a beautiful house and an ideal base for our tour through Umbria.

AANRADER! We belde naar maria in het dorpje montefranco en ze kwam ons daar halen en dit is zeker een tip want zelf kan je het niet vinden omdat het een deels onverharde weg is maar de locatie is zo geweldig! Wat een uitzicht❤️ Op dag 2 had maria zelfs lasanga voor ons gemaakt! Er zijn leuke dorpjes in de omgeving en we komen zeker terug als we in Umbrië zijn.

La casa è in un posto bellissimo, con una vista magnifica e dentro è curata in ogni dettaglio, come se fosse una casa abitata dalla famiglia stessa. Non c'è nulla su cui si è andati a risparmio. Si raggiunge in macchina da Montefranco, in pochi minuti, con un breve tratto di sterrato finale. I proprietari sono due bravissime persone, simpatiche e disponibili, interessate a che il soggiorno sia veramente piacevole. Assolutamente raccomandato.

Se avete intenzione di prendervi una breve pausa o fare una lunga vacanza per rilassarvi e godere appieno della bellezza incontaminata delle zone della Valnerina allora siete capitati nel posto giusto. La "Collina delle Ginestre" è un vera "finestra sul paradiso", così come viene descritto. Siamo stati davvero bene. Il posto è a dir poco spettacolare, con una vista mozzafiato su tutta la vallata. Il complesso, costituito da tre appartamenti indipendenti, tutti con cucina e servizi essenziali (riscaldamento, tv, internet) é in ottimo stato, tutto curato nei minimi dettagli e molto pulito. Ogni appartamento ha un terrazzo/balcone molto spazioso e arioso dove è possibile godere con tutti i sensi il meraviglioso panorama che ci circonda intorno, in un silenzio surreale, magari sorseggiando del buon vino. É un'esperienza che non puó essere descritta ma puó essere solo vissuta. C'é anche uno spazio comune sia al coperto (usato anche come reception) che fuori, dove è possibile usufruire della brace o addirittura del forno a legna, il tutto abbellito da una meravigliosa piscina all'aperto. Peccato peró che non abbiamo potuto utilizzarla in quanto non ancora era pronta per l'uso. Per quanto riguarda l'ospitalità devo dire davvero eccellente. Abbiamo avuto un'ottima accoglienza dai proprietari, sempre disponibili e gentili, con consigli molto utili sui posti da visitare. Antonello é stato sempre presente, seppur non fisicamente, rispondendo nell'immediatezza ad ogni mia domanda o dubbio, sin dalla prenotazione. L'unica cosa che mi sento comunque di segnalare, é che il complesso é situato in un posto abbastanza isolato, con circa due km finali di strada non asfaltata e in pendenza. Quindi non aspettatevi di trovarvi in un centro abitato, perché l'unico modo per raggiungerlo é solo con la macchina. Ma vi dico che ne vale davvero la pena, perché dopo un po' siete arrivati in "paradiso"!
