We stayed at Brigolante for a week in early May. The accommodation in a very tastefully restored Umbrian farmhouse was spacious, comfortable and immaculate. Il Focolare is a one-bedroom apartment with a huge bathroom and a kitchen/dining/living room with fireplace. (There are three apartments in total.) The host, Rebecca, is a young American-born wife and mother surrounded by her extended Italian family who carry out the activities of farming around the you. Guests are usually treated to products of the farm such as freshly-laid eggs, olive oil, honey, wine and produce. Rebecca is not intrusive but if you need anything during your stay, she is the personification of kindness and generosity. We felt immersed in rural Italian life with the advantage of having a native English speaker to help us with our crises. Magical Assisi is a relatively short drive away so we were able to go back and forth for the magnificent Calendimaggio (May festival), for sightseeing and dining. We made breakfast and occasional suppers in the kitchenette and took long walks in the beautiful countryside. A wonderful experience!
