Assisi is a big tourist area -- places in town are expense and the parking is insane. La Fornace is 8 KM out of town and in another world that is peaceful, quiet and rejuvenating. It's a real treat to find a place that is so near and yet so different. The trip to Assisi is an easy ten minute... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2014 and can't say enough how much I enjoyed my stay. At the top of my list of things I loved: wonderful staff and wonderful food! Each morning, the breakfast was generous and delicious - home-made tarts, jams, bread, with self-serve coffee and espresso. I highly recommend at least one dinner here... More

As usual we were looking for THAT special place and we found it. Attentions the Coordinates in the actual GPS are wrong: They are N43°05.10‘ - E012° 34.157‘ If you are looking for a quiet place in the middle of Nature, but close to Assisi this is definitely the place to be. During the day you can mix with the... More

We stayed here in September 2012, in the Le Camere rooms (Frogs and Geraniums). The rooms were comfortable and "just right". The bathroom was clean, had a shower (no tub) and had a nice view - a favorite part! The grounds at this agriturismo are very nice. Make sure to take a walk through the vineyards and take photos of... More

An old friend organized a trip of her friends to Italy in May of 2010. We all stayed at La Fornace, taking over the whole place. It was perfect--rooms for singles, rooms for couples on a modest budget and fancier suites for those who wanted them. We took the train into Florence one day, divided into small groups and drove...

A friend and I stayed at La Fornace for four days in May 2012. We stayed in I Papaveri, which was a spacious apartment containing two roomy bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, plus a good size living area with sofa and dining table, and a well-stocked kitchen area with cooker, fridge, dishwasher, etc. It had a homely feeling about...

We stayed here for three days this past May, 2012. The buildings and grounds were beautiful and beautifully maintained. The room was clean and spacious, and it came with a complete kitchen, which we didn't use. The location is great, very close to Assisi and a good launching point for visiting other Umbrian hill towns. The hostesses were very accommodating... More

We stayed at La Fornace a few years ago. The setting is just below Assisi on beautiful grounds. The accomodations were clean, and comfortable. The hosts made us feel right at home. I would recommend this location to anyone who wanted a great place to stay while touring the surrounding countryside. The date above is incorrect, but you didn't give... More

Owners Bianca and Fabrizio made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Our apartment was a two bedroom with plenty of space for the dining and kitchen area. We were minutes away from quaint tourist towns; including Assisi, Bastia, Gubbio and Spello and within an hour or so of larger cities like Perugia, Deruta and Florence. The food... More

Just 2 miles from Assisi, this lovely Agriturismo ranks as one of our most memorable Italian experiences. The rooms are spotless, well appointed and roomy. There are public rooms with stunning fireplaces, where, in the evening, one can share wine (grown on the estate) with friends. The host and hostess, Bianca and Fabrizio could not be more charming, welcoming or... More
