Friends of ours are planning on staying in and around Assisi/Perugia next summer and have asked if anyone has details of any decent agriturismos in the area?



A few years ago we 'did' one of the ATG walking holidays  [Umbria & Assisi], when we walked from Todi to Assisi over about a week.All the overnight stays were in Hotels apart from one night, which we spent at the Agriturismo San Felice  near to Giano dell'Umbria. Its a bit out of the way - but we had a superb overnight stay, and the evening dinner in the restaurant at the agriturismo was superb. Based on that regrettably short stay, I can most highly recommend the place  [but you definitely need a car] If you are visiting Assisi - try to stay at least one night in the city - the place empties of tourists [thousands of them] about 1700hrs, and its a delight to stroll around after they've gone.  We stayed a couple of nights at the Hotel Subasio - right by the Basilica di San Francesco - superb hotel with a terrace restaurant that overlooked the plains below

have a look at 'Tenuta casa bruciata' on the net ... near Umbertide/Perugia    this place has the most awesome position with a high commanding view... the infinity edge pool is second to none.   The cook comes out from Perugia.. all good stuff we stroll over for a fab supper from time to time.  They have several appartments ... we have taken many of them before so PM me for a chat with er indoors about which is best. There is a lot more than Assisi to do from here... trains to Rome or Florence, The 'Madonna del Parto' at Monterchi, Anghiari, Sansepolcro, Sienna, Arezzo, lunch on lake Trasimeno,.. all quite near.
