Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our places to stay in Umbria and Marche are complementary to those in the neighbouring region of Tuscany. It's natural for visitors to Tuscany to extend their travels east into Umbria in order to visit the fine old town of Perugia, and to see Assisi, the birthplace of St Francis. To the east, with its Adriatic coastline, is Marche, whose capital is the Renaissance 'art city' of Urbino.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Umbria and Marche offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: pensioni, alberghi, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out. Among our longstanding favourites are: La Badia, La Gioia and Fattoria di Vibio.

We have recently taken Castello d'Osciano at Perugia off the site and can no longer recomend it. If you would like to know why, please email our web editor on charmingsmall.hotels@zen.co.uk
