About Rebecca Winke
Rebecca Winke, originally from Chicago, moved to Assisi in 1993, and shortly thereafter the began a lengthy renovation project on the Brigolante farmhouse, which has been in Stefano Bagnoli’s family for at least eight generations. After a new home was constructed by the family in the 1970′s, the historic farmhouse, once attached to the neighboring houses as part of a medieval hilltop castle and, it is suspected, monastery, had fallen into ruin.
Because it had become dangerously unstable, the Bagnolis began doing small “fix-it-up” weekend projects on the building and surrounding property. As work went on, the project mushroomed over several years and, simultaneously, there was a boom in popularity of farm holidays in Tuscany and Umbria, so the Bagnolis decided to carve out vacation apartments from the farmhouse and see if the resulting vacation rental business could inject new life into the family farm, run by Stefano’s parents, Ugo and Emma.
The result has been more successful than they could have suspected, as the managing the apartment rentals has gone from a hobby to a career for Rebecca and she and Stefano both fear they may never get Stefano’s parents to retire now that they have guests poking around the barns and garden to appreciate their hard work.
Rebecca Winke purchased this farmhouse in 2008
