Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Assisi - Brigolante Guest Apartments

The perfect location--central yet in the countryside--to explore all of Umbria.

Just outside of Assisi, nestled among the foothills of St. Francis' beloved Mount Subasio in Umbria, this 16th century stone farmhouse, once part of a larger castle, has been carefully remodeled into an apartment holiday rental and which blend historic features and modern amenities.

The terracotta floors, hand painted tiles, antique and period country furnishings, and beautiful views overlooking the surrounding hills are just some of the features admired by guests of our vacation rentals in Assisi.

Our apartment in our holiday home in Umbria provides self catering accommodations for two to four guests, making it a perfect agritourism holiday rental near Assisi for couples, families or small groups traveling together.

Within the Mount Subasio Regional Park and just six kilometers from the medieval hill town of Assisi, the self catering holiday flat at Brigolante farm holiday, owned and worked by the Bagnoli family for more than eight generations, offers both a unique view into Italian rural life and a convenient and comfortable holiday rental home in Umbria from which guests can visit the famed nearby towns in Umbria, Tuscany, and the Marches, such as Perugia, Gubbio, Spoleto and Cortona.

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

Brigolante made traveling with young children easy! The location is idyllic, the accommodations charming and complete, the views breathtaking. It was a dream vacation, and we would return to Brigolante in an instant. I highly recommend staying here!

A great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
Beautifully renovated and perfectly maintained apartments in a bucolic setting on a real Umbrian farm, hosted by a charming American expatriate who not only goes out of her way to make sure her guests are comfortable, but is also happy to share her exhaustive local knowledge of what to do and see. Brigolante was a focal point of a wonderful vacation.

A slice of heaven in the beautiful Umbrian countryside

  • 5 out of 5
After a hectic week in Rome and a harrowing drive from Perugia (we drive on the OTHER side of the road in Australia!) Brigolante was like a slice of heaven- a warm, cosy, comfortable bed, beautifully decorated and well-equipped apartment, and a greeting basket of fresh farm eggs, home-produced olive oil, jam and honey, a fennel bulb, and fresh herbs. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and our hosts were warm and friendly. A highlight was the Thursday night Family Dinner, where fellow guests and our hosts enjoyed delicious food and great company. They very kindly catered to my gluten-free dietary requirements. Photos couldn't adequately depict how beautiful the views from our room were, nor the tasteful decor. There are lots of closeby towns to visit and explore, and our host was a mine of information. We loved Brigolante- it is one of our favourite and surprisingly best-value spots in Italy.

Comfortable accommodations near Assisi

  • 5 out of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay at Brigolante in April of this year. Our apartment was attractive, well cared for, and comfortable. Viewing the grounds of the farm and the nearby hills of Umbria was very pleasant. It is about 6 km north of lovely Assisi. I would recommend this property to anyone interested in exploring Assisi and/or Umbria. It is an excellent value

We stayed in La Loggetta in early Spring 2004. The apartment is great value, beautifully furnished and equipped, the surrounding countryside is stunning, the hosts are ever helpful but unobtrusive (and the family dogs are especially welcoming if you take them for walks!). The location is ideal for visiting the famous Umbrian hill towns, exploring the beautiful countryside and is a stone's throw from Assisi. We would highly recommend Brigolante.

A+++++. We had a great stay at Brigolante. Located on a working farm outside of Assisi, we found it to be a beautiful location, and a convenient base from which to explore Umbria. The hospitality was amazing, including free farm fresh eggs, local wine, and homemade pasta and pesto from the owner's mother-in-law. These treats were way above and beyond the level of hospitality we expected and were deeply appreciated. The owner is an American ex-pat who speaks english and has an impressive knowledge of the area. In addition to Assisi, we were able to explore Orvieto, Spello, Bevagna, Montefalco, and Gubbio from this location. A great value and an unforgetable experience!

4/20/04. We stayed for two weeks in La Loggetta during the late autumn of 2003 and have put off writing about our stay because prior guests had already stated the obvious. At that time of the year however, the farm is like the Italian answer to Arcadia. Stand behind the "main house" on a clear morning with no one else around, and you will know what we mean. The landscape and light are remarkably beautiful, almost otherworldly. So if you are looking for an Italian retreat or just a peaceful base in Umbria, we highly recommend this guest house.
The owners are charming too. We sorely regretted not speaking Italian, especially because the patriarch of the clan looks like he knows a great deal about the region and seemed to want to communicate also.
We miss Indi, the friendly black dog who was our guide and constant companion on the farm. We would have loved to take her home with us, which would have been a cruel fate for Indi, as our place is no comparison to hers.
The only caution we have is for people who have rarely driven on country roads. Plan to arrive in daylight on a clear day (remember this is mountainous terrain, which often means fog). The winding dirt road leading to the property is driveable, but it takes some skill and attention. So don't be playing with the radio :-).
