The holiday experience here at Tenuta di Forte Sorgnano estate, between Assisi and Perugia, Todi and Montefalco, is authentic ones. Children want a huge amusement park all to themselves? Nearby is the largest in Italy surrounded by nature. They are looking for a real farm experience? Miele and Bebè goats and piglets Ciro and Concietta are ready to become new four-legged friends.
Moms and dads aspire to good food and fine wines? The place is the right one because in addition to being a family farm of 200 hectares in Umbria, dominated by its ancient Castle, at whose feet lies a country house with apartments, rooms, restaurant and pool, is also a quality seal. And a demonstration of how this is a real holiday begins from the moment you enter here. To welcome the guests there are owners who have decided to live in the building, thus ensuring a true welcome to the whole family.
Children can therefore have fun and be transformed for a day into small and cute farmers, collecting fresh eggs for breakfast and giving hay to goats and rabbits, maize to pigs and geese and chickens to feed. Wise companion of this experience is the factor of the estate, ready to lead them into a real experience of nature and to encourage them to shake the paw of the little new friends.
We are in a forest at 450 meters above sea level and 208 hectares of Mediterranean spot among oaks, oaks, chestnut, fir, arbutus and ancient olive groves are certainly sufficient to find relax far away the life of all days. Maybe associated with one of the many proposals opportunities: from swimming to mountain biking, from table tennis to the gym, going for soccer fields, volleyball and to bowling up to walk in the paths of Tenuta. Not bad! Inside there is also a glass-building with panoramic views that inevitably attracts attention.
It is the wellness area with mini Jacuzzi, shower and sauna. And with an important detail: each couple or family can have this little relaxing corner all to yourself for an hour and a half. Because even privacy has its importance.
The restaurant confirmed expectations with those large windows overlooking the green gardens and the veranda from which to enjoy the view of the Umbrian hills. The risk is only one: you eat so well that an Extra Pounds at the end of the stay should be taken into account. And if this is a coveted spot for weddings and receptions it is also because of Sorgnano Castle that rises to the southwest limit, defying the passing time and are able to offer a magical setting. A good idea here would be to celebrate the birthday of your children, the environment is suitable.
But it is precisely enough a weekend with the whole family to enjoy a relaxing place for the eyes and ears, to be guided by the kindness and helpful staff and owners, enjoy course after course the food more than exquisite with a lot of typical dishes from local traditions.
And by the way, where to sleep? Room (classical or suite), or in an apartment (two or three rooms). The first are all on the first floor and overlooking the garden, in an elegant rustic style, for two or four people, always with private bathrooms, satellite TV and heating. The ten apartments are enriched by outdoor areas, home appliances and many others care for the whole family.
To complete the opportunities, Tenuta Forte Sorgnano has an agreement with the “Città della Domenica” in Perugia, the biggest attraction for families of Umbria. It means that you can spend a fun day in the outdoors with animals with a discount on the entrance fee. As well as the opportunity to participate in activities for adults and kids as the adventure ballooning or canyoning. But also for the discovery of the Umbrian wine cellars (for mom and dad alone!) Or to buy beautiful ceramics of Deruta.
