An ancient country house in the heart of Umbria, Villamena is set among the green hills halfway between Rome and Florence and just five miles from Assisi, the home of St. Francis. The name comes from a famous engraver, Francesco Villamena who lived there. (1566-1624). Built in medieval times and owned by the family for century, it has been renovated using original materials to create exclusive very well furnished apartments, some of them with fire place, all of them with well-equipped garden.
The complex not only offers the tranquillity of the unspoilt Umbrian country-side, but also provides a perfect base for combining a sightseeing holiday with walks and hiking.Villamena is located 450 metres high in the hills, and therefore has amazing views over the hills that are partly cultivated and partly forestry.
The owners have prepared 25 exclusive itineraries,in three languages to share with their guests for walking directly from Villamena, or to visit other parts of Umbria such as Spello, Bevagna, Montefalco and Gubbio . Those who are interested in the Italian Language have the possibility of having individual Italian lessons taken by a qualified teacher.

About Raffaella Covino
I 've been running Villamena for twenty years. For me it' s a very unique place: quite , simple, elegant.That's my idea of what beautiful in life. Of all of my passions, I like travelling and meeting people. And I love to see people discover my part of the word with their own eyes and through their own experience.
Raffaella Covino purchased this Apartment in 1992

Very pleasurable family stay!
Our family of 5, including our 18 month old, 3 and 5 year olds had such a lovely, typically Italian, stay in Raffaela's country house. We stayed 2 weeks and my stepmom and dad stayed 1, just across from us. Our accomodation was huge and supplied with just what we needed. It is well heated if you are there in a cool season and breezy with warmer weather. Laundry facilities are great for having young children, a definate advantage.
They have a very well-kept pool with the most stunning view of patchwork farmland on a very high, rolling hillside. We so enjoyed staying just outside of Assisi which is so quaint with an awesome pizzeria. Plenty to see in Assisi without the feeling of a large city.
You will not find more hospitable hosts. Raffaela and her family make you feel like family and with such humor. They obviously take pride in looking after their property and guests.
We are a well-traveled family and feel very confident in saying that my stepmom did a great job finding this place! We will see you again one day Raffaela ;)
Ciao for now, Kristin, Gareth, Owain, Gwyneth and Rhys
Dear Kristin and Gareth,
thank you very much for your kind words and we hope to see you again one day in Villamena with your wonderful family.
Villemena was beyond our expectations. Everything we would have hoped in a place.
We had a perfect holiday at Villemena. Raffaele and Marilena are the perfect hosts and will never disappoint.
Villamena is a lovely property and in a perfect location to explore the magical Assisi. It was lovely to meet the very charming mother of Raphael who brought us a delicious hot dinner of pasta our first night. Just what hungry travellers needed! They were very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Due to weather not perfect for swimming we didn't use the pool but the pool and tennis courts looked wonderful. We would recommend and stay there again.
Delightful place and hosts
Delightful property, lovely setting, very warm welcome from the owners, great swimming pool (as well as other facilities), many beautiful places to see nearby and opportunities for walking. Restaurant and small shop 1 km down the hill.
The Perfect Place To Stay
Wonderful hostess. Ideal for visiting Assisi. Large pool, lots of garden space and spotlessly clean appartment, fully equipped.
We had a most beautiful relaxing holiday
Very nice place
Our family of 3 had a very nice week. Amazing place. Very nice apartment, well-kept pool. A lot of interesting places to see in Assisi and this part of Umbria. Nice place for cycling trips (especially Monte Subasio climb). Good restaurants in the area (reasonable price).
Villamena is in the countryside five kilometres from Assisi, the name coincides with that of the famous engraver Francesco Villamena, hailing from place, nestling among the green hills of Umbria called the green heart of Italy, majestic and rural, graced by medioeval cities and mystic places. Assisi is the birthplace of St.Francis, in honour of whom the Basilica was erected with its masterpieces including the immortal Affresco by Giotto.
