KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
The farmhouses of Forte Sorgnano are situated in the picturesque countryside just east of Lake Trasimeno and between Assisi and Perugia, Todi and Montefalco. Dating from the 19th century, the large stone farmhouses have been carefully restored to preserve the original character of the buildings whilst providing guests with all modern conveniences.
Forte Sorgnano is made up of three farmhouses. The largest incorporates eight smaller holiday apartments that are ideal for couples. The second farmhouse incorporates two holiday apartments ideal for families of up to six people, but also for a group of 12 as the two apartments can be interconnected should the facility to do so be required. Between the farmhouses lies the owners house, this is where you will find the restaurant specialising in local cuisine using locally sourced seasonal produce and which offering breakfast, lunches and dinners on request. There are also a couple of additional rooms that are perfect for guests preferring a B&B experience.
At Forte Sorgnano children and adults alike will also find plenty of activities to keep them occupied from the children's playground, swimming in the panoramic pool, a game of table tennis, to walking along the hill trails or mountain bike riding around local villages. For those that enjoy horse riding, the nearby riding school offers lessons for beginners as well as trekking itinerary's visiting castles, wine cellars and small medieval villages. 500 metres up the hill from Forte Sorgnano you will find the estates stunning Castle with glorious views over the Umbrian countryside. This fortress, with foundations dating back to the 8th century, is situated at the borders of the Lobardic Duchy of Spoleto and was built to strengthen the Duchy in the area. The castle recently opened its doors and is now host to weekly organised dinners with live music. The castle offers a truly unique atmosphere, especially during the evening sunset.
Forte Sorgnano in collaboration with Rafting Umbria can also help organise guided descents along the Corno River an exciting activity for all and one which doesn't require any particular skills or certificates to partake in complete safety. The Corno River divides into two courses of the same length, which can be followed in about two hours, with maximum security for the most inexperienced. The first tranquil and fascinating course goes to the 'Gola di Biselli', where you stop to swim and drink water from a natural spring in the rocks.
Also nearby there is fishing, tennis, farm excursions and cooking courses, tastings and guided tours to the wine cellars and oil mills of the area.
For sightseeing, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Orvieto and of course the pretty towns that lie along the shores of lake Trasimeno all lie within easy reach and when all this becomes a little too intense and some serious relaxation is required, you will find a tranquil environment in the gardens and pool of the property where you can light up the BBQ, break open the wine and just sit and look out over the surrounding views.
