About Anna Maria

We are Margherita, Ubaldo and Anna Maria, the Agriturismo Dea's owners. Our family has this property from generations. The first documents that we have are of 1700, when one of our ancestry divided the property with his brother (that remained in the castle) and moved to 'Villa Dea' that was owned by our family. The ancient name of the villa suggested us the agriturismo name. This wonderful place remind to us several reminiscences that we like to share with those that will visit us.

Anna Maria purchased this apartment in 1600

Why Anna Maria chose Gubbio

This apartment is included in the property that belongs to our family from generations; for us it is full of reminiscences, but those that come for the first time perceive the atmosphere of the ancient family tied with the country and to those places that ooze a feeling of peace and stillness.

What makes this apartment unique

Those that come at Giomici say that no photos can convey the emotions of this place!

Beautiful Mountain Setting

  • 4 of 5

We spent a nice holiday in very spacious accommodation. Our landlady, Anna, could not have been more helpful. Not only did Anna speak fluent English, but she went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed our holiday. Giving address details and directions to local restaurants and places of interest, providing a hiking map of the local area, as well as accommodating our extremely late arrival time on the first day.

The large swimming pool, a 2 minutes walk away from our apartment, was surrounded by lush greenery, providing very calm surroundings. We made frequent use of the tabletennis table near the pool area, for which we had brought our own bats and ball.

We had the very large walled sitting area in front of our accommodation, which was overlooked by other apartments, to ourselves. Despite the lack of a view, we enjoyed BBQ’s and al fresco eating, weather permitting.

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure to have had Tatjana’s family and that of her sister in low as clients in the Agriturismo. All of them are very friendly and pleasant persons. It was a big satisfaction to see how they appreciated the apartment, the garden and the entire environment; they often went biking or to visit touristic places and for me it was a real pleasure to give them the information to contribute for a beautiful holiday in Umbria. Their barbecue were spectacular! Unluckily the rain of the last crazy summer disturbed their holiday. I will have a nice remember of these persons. E’ stato un vero piace avere avuto la famiglia di Tatjana e quella di sua cognata come ospiti dell’agriturismo. Sono persone molto aperte, cordiali e piacevoli. Era una grande soddisfazione vedere come apprezzassero l’appartamento, il giardino e l’intero contesto; erano in continuo movimento per escursioni in bicicletta o per visitare i luoghi d’interesse turistico e per me era un piacere poter dare loro le indicazioni per vivere al meglio la vacanza in Umbria. I loro barbecue erano uno spettacolo! Purtroppo la pioggia della scorsa estate pazzerella ha disturbato un po’ la vacanza. Porterò con me un bel ricordo di queste persone.

Wunderschön und äußerst gastfreundlich!

  • 5 of 5

Wir wohnten mit unseren drei Kindern insgesamt zwei Wochen in diesem wunderschönen Agriturismo, das von Stil, räumlicher Großzügigkeit und persönlicher Zuwendung geprägt ist. Anna Maria ist eine großartige Gastgeberin - respektvoll zugewandt, klug und immer hilfsbereit. Wir bewohnten je eine Woche die Apartments Lucertola und Francescana II. Beide Wohnungen haben ihren ganz eigenen Charme, sind äußerst großzügig geschnitten, sauber, mit alten Stilmöbeln eingerichtet und gut ausgestattet. Wifi und Fernsehen sucht man vergeblich - was gut ist für diesen Ort, der von Ruhe und Natur geprägt ist. In dem großen Garten findet jeder seinen eigenen Platz; der große, saubere und sehr schön gelegene Gemeinschaftspool bietet Gelegenheit, sich zu treffen. Der Weg zum Meer ist sehr weit, dafür liegen Kulturstädte wie Perugia, Assisi etc. in halbstündiger Entfernung. Ebenso nahe sind große Naturparks sowie der Lago Trasimeno. Fußläufig befindet sich ein großer Reitstall, der Unterricht und Ausritte anbietet. Das ganze Anwesen liegt auf einem Hügel, was den Gästen wunderschöne Ausblicke in die umliegenden Täler beschert. Insgesamt ein absoluter Geheimtipp. Wir werden sicher wiederkommen.

Verdi colline a due passi dai luoghi d'arte

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo alloggiato 6 giorni nell'appartamento Francescana I. L'appartamento è grande, accogliente, fresco, arredato con gusto e pulitissimo. La cucina è molto attrezzata, in sala c'è un grande camino e i letti sono comodi. La Francescana si trova sulle verdi colline di Giomici, in un luogo immerso nella quiete ma a due passi dai luoghi d'arte di quella bellissima regione che è l'Umbria. La proprietaria è molto cortese e mai invadente. Non c'è il wifi, ma la copertura della rete è discreta.

Gradevolissimo e rilassante soggiorno alla Francescana

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati una settimana alla Francescana I. L'appartamento è grande, accogliente e freschissimo, in cucina non manca nulla, ci è stato consegnato molto pulito. La signora Anna Maria è gentilissima e molto disponibile, mai invadente. La zona è splendida: colline verdi e una pace che sembra di essere fuori dal mondo, ma è anche un comodo punto di partenza per visitare tutta l'Umbria.
