Nestled among the foothills of St. Francis' beloved Mount Subasio, this 16th century stone farmhouse--once part of a larger castle--has been carefully remodelled into guest apartments which blend historic features and modern amenities. The terracotta floors, hand-painted tiles, antique and period country furnishings, and beautiful views overlooking the surrounding hills are only some of the features admired by our guests.
Just six kilometers from the medieval hill town of Assisi, and within the Mount Subasio Regional Park, the Brigolante farm has been owned and worked by the Bagnoli family for more than eight generations. It offers both a unique view into Italian rural life, and a convenient and comfortable base from which guests can visit the famed nearby towns of Umbria, Tuscany, and the Marches. We pride ourselves on our famous Italian hospitality and welcome our guests to a relaxing and memorable stay in the historic hills of Umbria.
La Loggetta: La Loggetta Apartment is located on the upper floor of the farmhouse and includes a small private porch from which our farm holiday guests can enjoy beautiful views of Mount Subasio and the surrounding foothills of Umbria. This airy self catering apartment has bright white walls, high ceilings, and mountain views from every window. Sipping your first cup of coffee or tea on your private porch while watching the sun warm Mount Subasio will ensure a fabulous start to your farm holiday in Umbria with us. There is a table for four perfect for enjoying a basket filled with goodies from our farm (including fresh eggs, home made jams, and our own wine). There is also a comfortable country style sofa which converts to a single bed with a bright floor lamp perfect for catching up on your reading. The romantic bedroom in La Loggetta Apartment is furnished with the original restored antique iron bed, dresser, and side tables from the farmhouse.
Brigolante Guest Apartments: Our self catering holiday flat is part of the original farmhouse of the Brigolante Agritourism just outside of Assisi in Umbria and sleeps 2-4 guests. It has a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator and stove-top (cooker), bedroom with queen-sized bed, and immaculate modern bath. Satellite TV, telephone, washing machine and independent heating are included in our holiday rental apartment in Umbria. The apartment La Loggetta offers kitchen-sitting rooms with sofa and two additional single beds which can accommodate up to three adults or two adults and two children. Having your own balcony means you can choose to enjoy the view over Mount Subasio in relative privacy, or meet your neighboring farm holiday guests in the shared garden. There you can dine al fresco on the covered stone paved patio, grill on our new Weber gas barbeque, and relax on the numerous chaise lounges. Visit Perugia, Spello, Spoleto, Lake Trasimeno, and Gubbio from our convenient central location.
