See location on a Google Map


THE RESIDENCE

Dominating the little village of Rasiglia, Residence Menotre is an ancient 15th century stone tower built for defence of the Trinci's Castle.

The Residence enjoys astonishing views and it is ideal to relax and rest oneself away from city chaos. Residence Menotre is the result of a careful restoration of an ancient stone tower belonging to the Trinci's Castle, which imposing walls are still visible. Situated on the hills of Foligno (650m asl), the Residence is the ideal place for those loving nature in all its aspects.

The Residence looks out onto the wooded hillsides and the River Menotre allowing you to relax and really take in the peace and quiet here. It is the perfect spot for long walks or taking a ride on one of the bikes provided by the Residence, and for the more adventurous of you there is hiking, rock climbing and rafting.

Within few minutes you can be on the road to some of the most beautiful medieval towns in Italy - something to suit almost every taste!

In Rasiglia you can find all the basic amenities: a bar, a general grocery shop with the most deliciuos prosciutto, the post office and a tobacconist. In Verchiano (3km East) you will find a riding-school and a very good restaurant while in Casenove (3 km North) there is a petrol station.
