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 occasionally live in a separate building on the estate during the summer. 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.

Depending on the accommodations rented, Il Borghetto di Assisi can accommodate the following:

12 people - The main house sleeps 12 people (6 bedrooms/6 bathrooms).

13 - 16 people - main house + 2 to 4 person bedroom suite with separate outside access

The well maintained grounds surrounding Il Borghetto di Assisi gracefully and completely complement the house.   The large swimming pool (15m x 7.5m) with the furnished deck sits in a panoramic and sunny position.  The landscaping is graced with mature trees and large areas of grass.  The various terraces feature flowering and aromatic plants such as lavender and rosemary offering  a wonderful  fragrance as you walk along the gravel paths.

There is also a barbecue, private parking area and table tennis. In addition to a dishwasher and washing machine, other amenities include microwave, kettle, American coffee maker, Italian espresso maker, ironing facilities, hairdryer, babycot and high chair. Satellite TV and fast Internet service are also available.

Main country house

As many of the country houses in Umbria, Il Borghetto di Assisi develops over a sloped area and has several different levels:


The main entrance leads to the main kitchen, to a sitting room with soccer table and a bathroom with shower. Stairs lead down to the living/dining room with a large, arched fireplace. Both the kitchen and the living room have direct access to the garden. Next to the main entrance, with only outside access, is another entrance leading to the other two levels. On the first level is a second kitchen with dining room, two double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom with shower, one twin bedroom and one bathroom with shower. From the dining room two staircases lead to the third level. Alongside these two staircases are two double rooms, one with en-suite bathroom with shower, one twin bedroom and two bathrooms with shower and a kitchenette with loft. From the outside one enters a second wing of the house with a double room and bathroom with shower on the ground floor. From this room an imposing wooden staircase leads to the top attic floor with another double bedroom.
