Col di Fiori
Bed & Breakfast
in Umbria, the green heart of Italy
Col di Fiori, Montelabate
in the center of the cultural triangle Perugia - Assisi - Gubbio
Col di Fiori B&B offers a personalised, environmentally friendly stay to all guests, ensuring comfort and well-being throughout the visit.
Globetrotters and owners of Col di Fiori, Maja and Patrick, have always been fond of the Italian hospitality, cuisine and culture.Which is why they decided to buy an old ruin in the vast scenery of Umbria to convert into a B&B. The house is located between culturally renown cities like Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio.
Formerly a blacksmiths shop, the Bed & Breakfast has been renovated to offer 5 spacious rooms combining traditional Umbrian architectural elements with a modern touch.
All rooms have different interior designs and can be rented either as single rooms or several up to all rooms together for larger groups of up to eleven people.
In order to ensure a relaxed stay for all guests as well as not to disturb the plentiful wildlife (birds, deer, porcupines etc.), we advise to leave pets at home.
Note: Unfortunately, a section of the access road is quite bumpy and not suitable for low-laid cars!
A rich breakfast buffet is included in the room rate at Col di Fiori.

Recreation, Sports, Nature & Culture
The region is renown for its medieval hill 'towns' such as Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio, which are all close by.
The Montelabate abbey that dates back to the 9th century is within walking distance.
Easy day trips by bike or challenging bike-trails are possible in close proximity to the B&B and in the region, see wikiloc. Consult bike-tours with local guides. Bike rental on site (one basic normal bike and one e-Bike) or at Powerbikes.it.
Renown as the 'green heart' of Italy, Umbria offers many hiking trails with beautiful scenery, many in close proximity to the house. Suggestions, maps and guidebooklets are available to guests.
It is possible to visit vineyards in the vicinity, with offers of tours and wine tasting. See Montefalco Wine for an overview.
Umbria has diverse festivals - from music to cuisine. With Umbria Jazz at Perugia, one of the most renown Jazz festivals takes place in July. And in October the eurochocolate is held in Perugia.
The surrounding nature invites for numerous possibilities from easy up to sporting joggings. A marked trail up to the «Madonnina» starts right behind the house.
I had a wonderful stay at Maja's place. The house - renovated with love and good taste - is just lovely. I felt at home immediately. Maja is a wonderful host - and her cooking is amazing. It was just the relaxing vacation I was looking for.
