The Land

Hotel Relais Forti is located in the Foligno area, in Colfiorito, considered a point of encounter between the regions of Umbria, land of Saints and green heart of Italy, and Marche, which, after the construction of state road SS 77, are now closer than ever and faster to reach.

The marsh, the authentic soul of the Regional Park of Colfiorito and karstic planes of Annifo, Arvello and Ricciano, outlines a strip of land considered among the most evocative of Umbria.
It is an area of great historical, ecological and biodiversity value that surprises and yield exciting moments, and is capable of entering deeply into the soul of those who are able to grasp its subtle messages.
Messages of genuineness and purity that nature and a landscape still sufficiently intact are able to convey to those who want to visit and learn about the territory of Colfiorito.

Author Francesco Renzini, scholar of the aquatic ornithofauna of the marsh of Colfiorito, has graciously granted us permission to publish his photos of landscapes.
