La Locanda del Capitano

Montone, Perugia

Hang out with the locals in the charming village of Montone, steep yourself in Assisi and Spoleto, dine exquisitely on Giancarlo’s food


12 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 3


Wend your way up to the fortified village of Montone, closed to traffic and impeccably preserved. On one of its steepest alleys is the locanda of the ‘Captain’, Giancarlo Polito – economist, photographer, hotelier and chef straordinario. Passionate about life, history, everything, he adores showing off his village and his home, loves talking about food and knows every producer in Umbria. Enter the wrought-iron gate off the street and trot up the steps to reception. Spill onto the front terraces for conversation, relaxation and the sound of the church bells, feast on wines and cheeses in Tipico, their ‘cave’ next door, or set sail for the dining room, elegant and charming, with bow-backed chairs and an antique piano. The food is beautiful and full of surprises, combined tastes to awaken the senses accompanied by 400 wines. Cooking classes, truffle hunts, visits to wineries and producers, Perugia, Assisi, Bevagna and Montefalco: history and gastronomy combine. Then it’s back to decorative iron beds on parquet floors and salmon and soft-green hues. Ask for a room with a balcony and a view.

wonderful old house in centre of stunningly beautiful village. Very comfortable ( air conditioning, a blessing in the extreme heat. Giancarlo and Carmen very welcoming, and he is a superb chef. The Umbria Film Festival was being held in the central piazza and was great fun.


I am reluctant to praise this wonderful hotel, for fear of it becoming too popular; the restaurant produces some of the finest food in Italy, with exquisite wines to match. My extended family and I have been visiting the region for the last seven years staying in a villa just outside the village and a meal here is always a highlight of our holiday! Fine dining rarely gets better than this.
