This beautiful Agriturismo is the next best thing to owning your own home. A charming street carries one through this magical little borgo, presided over by a beautiful, young Marchesa.....Ginevra Sanminiatelli. Each room is updated, with an artistic eye. Their restaurant, I Due Papi is beautiful and the food is delicious. I highly recommend staying here, for a homey experience.

Veritable home away from home, Sismano is the perfect place to stay both to visit Umbria and to relax. Located near Todi, it is within easy driving distance from Assisi and Perugia to the north and from Orvieto, Narni and Bomarzo to the south. Sismano's owner, Marchesa Sanminiatelli, has restored the family castello and surrounding medieval town with impeccable taste and great attention to detail and comfort. The rooms and suits are spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed, the bathrooms sumptuous. The swimming pool is a haven of peace and quiet. Sismano has a lovely restaurant where one can lunch or dine, inside or out, on superb Umbrian cuisine, prepared "casalingha" by the family cook. Breakfast is generous and delicious, and the hours are flexible (no stress). The small staff is friendly and efficient – just the right mix of presence and discretion. In short: one of the nicest places I know in Italy.

Room Tip: All good
