|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
The 'Francescana I' is an apartment at the first floor of a portion of the owner's house and it is one of the accommodations f the 'Agriturismo Dea'. Comfortable and well furnished, the apartment is located in a place rich in vegetation, particularly relaxing and far from noisy roads. It is closed to the little medieval castle of Giomici and upon the Chiascio river valley. The site is a good starting point to do tourism and it offers an ideal solution to those that want a relaxing holiday.
The Farmhouse Dea takes the name from "Villa Dea", the ancient residence of the Vagni family owner of the farmhouse and of the land cultivated with olive trees, fields and woods.
Located near the Giomici castle, in the middle of the area which includes Perugia Assisi and Gubbio, at an altitude of 500m and surrounded by enchanting views, it enjoys the absolute quiet of the environment and offers relaxing stays.
The apartments, ample and comfortable, are of different sizes, they have the gardfen and the clients can use the swimming-pool.
The holiday in the Agriturismo Dea is particularly suitable for those that love the silence, the nature and the country and that desire a relaxing holiday but also want to discover the lovely Umbria
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
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.
Those that come at Giomici say that no photos can convey the emotions of this place!
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.
We (3 adults) spent 4 lovely days in Francescana I. The apartment is very classy, clean and comfortable. All supplies are provivded. Moreover, the location of the apartment, close to a castle, is spectacular. Anna-Maria is very kind and helpful. All in all, a great place to stay if you would like to discover beautiful Umbria.
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.

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans le grand appartement Lucertola, très propre et très calme.
La piscine est super et les jardins très spacieux...
Encore merci à Ana Maria et sa famille pour leur formidable accueil et gentillesse;))
Nous recommandons ces gîtes sans aucun doute!
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.
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.
