Description: Merged in the enchanting landscape preluding to the Monti Sibillini National Park, in the heart of green Umbria, is the Hotel Locanda Cacio Re from an ancient 16th century refurbished farm. Inside, you'll find comfortable rooms, named after local legends characters, with a wonderful view over the Nera River valley, and a typical restaurant, 'La Locanda di Cacio Re', our passion... Close to the hotel is the medieval Vallo di Nera Castle, still populated and perfectly preserved, with its boundary walls, towers and stone-made houses. Its beautiful churches are place of classical music concerts and are a perfect spot for any kind of ceremony. Nature and Culture join in this place, where you can still feel the touch with the land and silence... Here is our Restauant, 'Locanda di Cacio Re', where each course is prepared with creativity and refinement. Inside, you'll taste the products offered by Valnerina lands: truffles, cheeses, hams, sausages, lambs, lentil and spelt, coupled to a wide selection of great quality wines...

We stayed here in the last week of September so we were the only ones at the hotel. I say this as maybe it has a bearing on our experience.
The location is spectacular with views down the valley and the local hillside village is like something out of a film set!
Our room had no outside windows as such however, the passageway to the ensuite bathroom had doors out to a communal patio which overlooked the valley. But the room was still quite dark and lights had to be on whenever you were in the room.
The lady (chef?) was pleasant enough but did only speak Italian, all the time. So, as our Italian is not the best (and I know us British can be lazy like that!) , this may have affected our choice of food in the restaurant. We used Google Translate to make our choices and whilst the pasta was very good, the "lamb chops" were not chops at all, but just pieces of lamb.
Overall, I felt that €140 for dinner, bed and breakfast plus two bottles of beer and two bottles of water was a bit much - for two of us. I am comparing this to other places we have stayed in during our trip through Italy.

We made a left turn, instead of a right turn, and found ourselves driving up to a really cool hilltop hamlet, I Casali di Vallo di Nera. There we found Locanda Cacio Re and thoroughly enjoyed a lunch that included gnocchi and trout. The service was great given the host/hostess were very patient with our inability to speak Italian. We look forward to returning before we return back to the states.

This restaurant (which also offers rooms) is superbly located in the charming hillside village of Vallo di Nera - in the Valnerina, no more than 15 minutes from Spoleto. High on a hill, it offers wonderful views of the valley, by day and night. In summer, there is an expansive terrace for al fresco meals.
Paolo and Cinzia are warm and friendly hosts who will immediately put you at ease. Moreover, their menu is supported by wonderful local produce (meats, cheeses, truffles) and they are skilled chefs, so the culinary experience is always excellent. The wine selection is good and Paolo can give valuable advice if you are not familiar with regional wines.
We spend a lot of time in this area. Cacio Re is without doubt the stand-out restaurant. It has the whole package - location, culinary excellence, friendly and first-class service. Moreover, prices are very reasonable, giving genuine expression to 'value for money'.

This restaurant did not disappoint in any aspect: Excellent food, beautiful view, professional service, and superb value for money.
Try the surprisingly varied cheese platter, and if you're daring - one of their special desserts.
