The hotel is called Albergo Moretti, and it is located in the town of Moretti, in Piazza Moretti, and the owner is called...Massimo Moretti! It's not a joke, it's true! It is well worth a visit in our opinion.
Along with its family charm and character, the Hotel Moretti offers a pleasant and comfortable stay at a very reasonable price. This hotel has a long list of returning customers on full-board over the last 15 - 20 years and has long since proven itself therefore. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, and the style is thoroughly homely in the best sense of the word. The hotel restaurant is extremely pleasant and offers typical local mountain cuisine with comprehensive use of mushrooms and chestnuts.
The atmosphere in the small town is cosy and welcoming and the hotel forms a sort of hub in the main square with both the hotel on one side and the family Moretti bar on the other side. There are a few other hotels in the square also.
It's a real pleasure to just sit in the bar or in the large pergola and watch the village life. There are 7 rooms with balconies so if you have one of these you can sit there and watch the world go by. The rooms are furnished quite spartanly and the beds are not the biggest, but all in all it's great value for money.
Our In-Italia representative that stayed here was most impressed with the food served in the hotel's restaurant. They enjoyed good sturdy traditional dishes and by far the best meals that they'd had during a two week tour of Piedmont, Tuscany and Umbria. It is obvious from the wine list that the owner takes an interest in what he pours into the glass; it is surprisingly large and varied for such a small hotel, about 150 in total to choose from. We should also add that the wine prices in some cases are lower than the ones we found in the shops a few years ago. The wines start at around eight and half Euro's a bottle and go up to much higher prices, but by no means are they unreasonable prices for the special vintages and selections on offer. In short, it is tempting to come here with a good back, take a few short walks and enjoy the great food and wine.
