The Osteria del Vettore (Tavern of the Carrier), thus renamed after the earthquake of 2016, has been present in the restaurant business since 1988.
Located in the new hang gliding structure right next to the magnificent Carrier, the highest peak of the Sibillini mountains that surround the Pian Grande of Castelluccio di Norcia.
This landscape paradise is preparing to offer us, as in every spring, the natural spectacle of flowering that tinges almost the entire plateau with various colors.
In our osteria with a panoramic terrace you can taste typical dishes of the Castellucciana Nursina and Marche tradition with products such as the Norcia truffle, the game ragù from our territory, Castelluccio cheeses, cold cuts from the Norcineria nursina, meats from our pastures, even homemade yogurt ice cream with zero km sheep's milk.
Our cuisine continues the glorious culinary enterprise started in Norcia in the 70's by Mauro and Vittorio Battilocchi known as a trattoria by the French.

The "Adoration of the Shepherds" is a fresco painted by Pinturicchio (c. 1452 - 1513) between 1500 and 1501 on the central wall of the Baglioni Chapel (or "Beautiful Chapel") in the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Spello (Perugia - Umbria).
In this work the most sincere qualities of the painter shine, he paints with all simplicity and in his touch there is a rare expressive force that touches the artistic peak reached by the painter in his long career.
The scene of the painting is set in the meadow in front of the hut with Maria, who wears a blue mantle embellished with a star on her shoulder, intent on contemplating adoring the Baby Child.
And it is precisely to this magnificent detail that my post is dedicated.

Relais Casamassima, a beautiful, finely restored historic residence, is located just 5 kilometers from Perugia, in a refined but pleasantly informal setting in the heart of the Umbrian hills.
Once used as storages for agricultural use, the indoor areas that today make up the Relais Casamassima have been designed in detail with sober elegance, and the skilful play of colors makes every corner of the structure unique and worthy of a small charming Bed & Breakfast, with three spacious Suites, a Junior Suite and a refined Deluxe Room, all elegantly furnished.
Breakfast is served on the outdoor patio in fine weather, or in a bright room once used as a greenhouse. The old stable, now a library full of books on Perugia and Umbria, is available to guests who want to discover and deepen their knowledge of this area.
From the park, which surrounds the entire property, you reach a gazebo where in summer you can receive relaxing massages, and then dive into the small private pool from which the view sweeps pleasantly between the olive groves and vineyards of the farm, which has always been connected to the agritourism business. Here DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil and three varieties of IGT wines are produced.
The garden below produces fruit and vegetables for all seasons, as well as the hens produce fresh eggs, all of which can be tasted for breakfast or for a meal upon request in the structure. Walking through the grounds of the property it is also possible to meet the sheep of the farm with the lambs grazing.
The Relais Casamassima is also a location for the on-site celebration of weddings with a Civil Rite; can host small receptions, birthday parties and all sorts of private events.

For over 100 years the Oligomineral Water of Foligno, label from 1929.
For over a century the private area of the Fonti was, by the will of the Massenzi family, open to citizens who went there, not only for the purchase and consumption of water, but also to escape from the heat of summer and spend relaxing moments with the whole family.
The Sassovivo spring is located within a property of about 200 hectares, mainly woodland, within a SIC (site of community interest), a sort of protected park due to its specific flora and fauna.
The mineral water of the Sassovivo springs flows from the living rock (hence the name) inside the "Grotta dell’Orso" at about 600 meters above sea level. The water has a low fixed residue, a perfect balance of the salts dissolved in it, a fixed temperature at the source of 9.5 degrees centigrade.
Thanks to its properties it is recommended for low sodium diets and for infant feeding.
The water flows from the living rock inside the "Grotta dell’orso" at about 600 meters above sea level and the maximum distance between the source and the distribution systems is just 25 meters. Bottling takes place only in 0.25-0.75 or 1 liter glass bottles.
Today the staff is also supported by a Idrosommelier, Christian Taro, who offers it to the best clubs in Italy and Europe, as "luxury" water; that is, with the empty disposable glass and many other peculiarities that make it unique and coveted.
First of all, it is the only water in the world, which can be uncorked with a corkscrew, because one format is in the 0.75cl Bordeaux bottle with silicone cap.
