About Franca Borgarelli
My name is Franca and I am the owner of "Il Corniolo" Agritourism. I live in the countryside since I was a child, I used to the ample and green spaces, to clean air, to silence and background sounds of nature and to move opendoors that is required by working in countryside and tourism. All these are details of which I do not think I could live without. I have a passion for jams, I make some with our organic fruits and others with trusted suppliers' fruits. The traditional flavors are: Strawberries, apricots, peaches, grapes, figs, raspberries, blackberries. While the particular one are: Pear and walnuts, pumpkin and oranges, kiwi and hawthorn's flowers. Another passion I have is cooking! I prepare breakfast with sourdough bread, jams and homemade cakes or pastries.
Franca Borgarelli purchased this Farmhouse in 1980
Why Franca Borgarelli chose Corciano
We opened our agritourism in 2003. It was a 1800's house and barn, owned by my family that had a very large farming business; We renovated it into 7 nice apartments, a communal lounge and a swimming pool. About the agritourism's activities, it is a wonderful experience for me to meet so many people, coming from Italy and from many other countries, with which forge relationships and share experiences and life stories. It is a beautiful place for guests who wish to get in touch with each other informally, enjoying together the warmth of the fireplace.

A beautiful and peaceful stay
A great place to stay for a relaxing holiday, but perfectly located with many incredible places within a short drive. The hosts, Franca and Flavia, were such a great help; nothing was ever a problem.
The accommodation was really well maintained, even providing a baby cot and highchair for my little one. A lovely pool helped cool off during the day and the local supermarket had a wonderful selection of food and wine. We look forward to a future return visit.
The map location in the App has the address in Perugia town, which is not correct, so make sure you get the right address.
