Villa dei Platani Boutique Hotel & Spa ****
Situated in the town centre of Foligno, a short walk from the train station, Villa dei Platani originates from a 1928 Liberty style villa. After various uses, it became a hospitality structure in the 1970's, only then to be fully restructured in 2007 in order to assume the characteristics of a modern and functional 4*star hotel, providing stays in total comfort. Among the amenities available at the hotel: an Italian garden, a roof terrace and a Suite dedicated to Wellness and Spa with the opportunity to experience relaxing massages and treatments. Other services include: breakfast buffet, a meeting room capable of hosting up to 20 people and dining agreements with some of the best restaurants in the city. Hotel guest parking can be found at the rear of the structure.
Open daily and upon reservation, the Luxury Wellness Room SPA within the Hotel offers Wellness services including: a hydro-massage, Finnish sauna, chromotherapy, sensory showers and a tea room. Among some of the practiced treatments in the centre is the exclusive Arpa massage; a particular wooden bed composed of 96 cords provides relaxation, granting physical and mental benefits.
The 27 rooms in Villa dei Platani are divided into the following: Executive, Junior, Deluxe, Business, Family Room, Suite and a Hydro-massage Roof Top room; this option has a balcony with a small, hydro-massage pool for exclusive use. Communal services provided to all guests include: AC, 2 Satellite TVs with Sky channels, digital safe box for laptops, minibar, tea and coffee machine and a free Wi-Fi connection.
Everyday, Villa dei Platani prepares a breakfast buffet with both sweet and savory options available for its guests to enjoy. There isn't a restaurant available in-loco but the hotel has dining arrangements with some of the best restaurants in the town centre, all within short walking distance.
There are many cultural, artistic and gastronomic pursuits to undertake in Foligno, not forgetting that the whole of Umbria is worth exploring- village after village and hill after hill, it's one of the richest artistic, cultural, historical and naturally beautiful regions in Italy. The medieval villages of Bevagna, Spello and Montefalco are only a short drive away as is Assisi (22kms away): staying so close by in Foligno allows one to really explore this ancient city, famous as the birthplace of San Francesco and remains of the Stone Age- this city was already an urban reality even before the arrival of the Romans. Likewise in nearby Spoleto, one can't miss: the Romanesque Cathedral, the ruins of a Roman theatre, the city museum, the splendid fortress and the "Bridge of the Towers". Naturally, there is Perugia; with its splendid, medieval town centre made up of five districts, situated on an acropolis hill.
