“Isolated house on the hill facing Assisi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Il Sambro wasn’t easy to find but my GPS navigator managed to find the road and then you just follow the signs. The building is situated on the hill overlooking Assisi (~10km), far away from villages and towns. We have used it as a base to visit Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto and other Umbrian cities. Apartments consist of sleeping room, kitchen & dining room, terrace. The person we met hasn’t perfect English, but we’ve understood each other.
(+) Staff was very welcoming, beautiful view, spacious clean rooms. Good value for money.
(-) Internet was very slow. We haven’t found supermarkets near it.

Farmhouse.
Splendid view on Assisi(!!) at sunrise over the valley, quiet place.
About 3-4 km to the nearest village (Passagio), cca 5 km to historic Bettona.
Strategic location in the middle of Umbria.
Very kind and helpful owner.
(We stayed only for sleeping over, travelling all days and late evenings through Umbria and Tuscany.)

Firstly, an apology because Tripadvisor does not allow me to post any review of a trip that took place before November 2009 - no idea why. However, we stayed at Il Sambro, just outside of the beautiful town of Assisi in the summer (August) of 2008. I thought I had posted a review of the place soon after my holiday but cannot find it. So belatedly, I am adding one. I hope it is useful, I still remember it well. We stayed for two weeks. The first with my wife, sons and mother in law, and we were then joined by a second family in the second week. It's a small group of apartments and villas in a very quiet location with maginificent views over the valley towards Assisi. Andrea who runs the place, is very congenial - spoke very little English - but was kind, helpful and during the plunge in the value of sterling that year, offered us a decent discount on the two week's rent. Having said that his prices are very reasonable for the quality and style of accomodation - which is traditional but comfortable. There's a cute pool for everyone to share along with the ubiquitous olive trees and modest gardens, with plenty of bay, thyme and rosemarino around. The restaurant was closed when we were there so it was less an agrotourismo and more self catering but this was not a problem, Our apartment had a lovely terrace/balcony, and a decent kitchen, well supplied. We ate outside every single meal and in the evenings as the kids slept, enjoyed a little vecchia romana and some music from the ipods whilst we read in the balmy evenings. Local towns had various food-based festivals (usually pork) which was fun and we especially liked Torgiano for its excellent red wines. Assisi is spectacular and we went often. I would happily return.
