Farm stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with Rafaella for five nights. The farm is perfectly located to explore Perugia, Assise, Spoleto, Spello, Trevi and more if we had had the time.Our accomodation was very comfortable and clean and the kitchen well-equipped for cooking. Rafaella was very welcoming and helpful -giving good tips about what to see and do in the region, recommending restaurants and even washing a load of clothes for us. We were in Italy for a month and our stay with Rafaella was our favourite part of our trip.

A true "Italian" home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here MANY times and keep coming back! I have also recommended this apartment to family, friends and colleagues traveling alone or in groups. Set on a spectacular hillside in Umbria, right outside Perugia, as soon as you arrive you get a sense of home. The owners are cordial and hospitable, and really act as a support for whatever you need during your stay. The apartment is very clean & spacious with a lovely rustic charm. You can take walks through the vast property and surrounding areas as well as enjoy the pool right below the apartment. Perfect for a person who loves the country, yet very close (only a 10 minute drive) to the center of Perugia- for those who want the best of both worlds (city & country). Very easy with a rental car and also accessible by public transportation or by taxi. The owner will also help you organize any type of activity you are interested in during your stay! For me this is the ONLY and BEST place to stay while in Perugia!

Can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is quintessential Umbria!! Rafaella & Stefania are amazing hosts. The cooking classes are fun, informative & of course, delicious! Even if someone going isn't a "foodie", they'll love the setting, & wonderful afternoon activities Raffaella can arrange. The accommodations are basic but spacious & everything you need. Very comfortable & extremely welcoming.
