Welcome to Farnetta, a small rural village nestled in the beautiful hills of central Italy, really close to Montecastrilli and Terni. The beauty and tranquility of this place, together with the fact that Umbria is one of the most artistic and historical italian regions (with cities like Assisi, Spoleto and Orvieto, to name but a few), makes Farnetta an absolute must-visit if you want to discover the real Umbria. Our Cesarina Roberta lives just there, in a traditional and stylish cottage, built near an enchanted wood of oak trees.

In this wonderfully peaceful haven, Chiara develops her passion for traditional Umbrian cuisine: following her family recipes and loyal to the Umbrian traditions, she makes bread every day using only organic whole wheat flour and prepares meals from her vegetable garden.

Cesarine offers bespoke gastronomic experiences; to taste traditional Italian food in good company and idyllic locations: historic buildings, antique villas, houses secluded by nature, terraces with breathtaking views. Cesarine’s hand-selected locations are some of the most beautiful private homes in all of Italy.

If you are passionate to explore the authentic flavours of traditional Italian cuisine and dine in elegant homes with local experts, this is the experience for you.

Cesarine supports Banco Alimentare, Italy's national food bank. By purchasing this experience, you will help Banco Alimentare to collect and distribute vital food to charities that support Italians in need. Cesarine will donate 1.00 euro for each reservation.
