IL BORGHETTO DI ASSISI ASSISI, Umbria, Italy
Located just seven kilometers from St. Francis' Assisi, Il Borghetto di Assisi offers a wonderful environment and location for a family reunion or gathering of friends. The views through the olive groves and trees over the valley are expansive with the sweet medieval village of Sterpeto nearby on the neighboring hill. The bells from its parish church can be heard in the distance creating a relaxing and soothing ambiance.
This characteristic stone farmhouse dates back to the late 1700's and is very representative of the Umbrian "fattorias" of the time period. The buildings are built of warm stone accented with the deep colored wood shutters that are typical of this type of architecture.
The lower ground floor was used as a stable in former times and this level has been transformed into a spacious living and dining room. The metal rings where the horses and donkeys were tied have been maintained in the stone to remind of us of an era gone by. Today, this vast living area has been furnished with sofas, a handsome raised fireplace and doors that open out onto the garden.
Historically, the living areas were above the stable (ground floor) and graced with a distinctive stone loggia. This characteristic feature has been nicely maintained and the loggia at Il Borghetto di Assisi leads to the upper floor where the bedrooms are located.
The owners of Il Borghetto di Assisi have paid very careful attention to the original features and integrity of the building retaining the 18th century layout and using appropriate materials. Wood beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and interior brick pillars attest to special care with which the restoration has been carried out.
The furnishings are especially noteworthy. The talents of local artisans have been used in creating handcrafted pieces of furniture, unique lighting, painted headboards and warm and welcoming fabrics. The quality is superb. A high level of comfort and modern features create an attractive and very comfortable accommodation.
Accessed from the covered loggia, the bedrooms are on various levels and all offer great views of the surrounding countryside. The house presents a variety of kitchen/dining areas, bedrooms and bathrooms throughout the house, thus offering a number of sleeping and living options.
The owner and family live in a separate building on the estate. Their residence is accessed by an independent driveway and your privacy will be respected although they may on rare occasions use the pool. Groups paying the small party rate for up to 12 people will have use of the main house only.
