“A Magical Umbrian Escape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2010

My week at Brigolante was an escape to nature and dreamy days of wine, farm grown food, leisurely walks through the foothills of Monte Subasio and visits to the the picturesque town of Assisi. My apartment was the right blend of modern comforts and medieval charm. Added to this Rebecca was a warm, inspiring and generous host and I immediately feel part of the daily rhythm of the farm. As a solo traveller this was an uplifting experience. I was able to genuinely relax and absorb the beautiful land, the fresh air, the vivacity of the locals and many of the cultural and culinary opportunities in and around Assisi. Oh, and wonderful provisions - all grown or made - on the farm just added to the charm. I can't wait to return and share my discovery with friends. Thank you so much Rebecca!

We stayed at Brigolante for a little over a week. It turned out to be the perfect place for us to stay while we spent a week exploring the hill towns of Umbria. The apartments are on a working farm, and as it is off the main road, it is very quiet at night. Rebecca starts you off with fresh eggs and some produce from her garden and told us that we were welcome to take whatever we needed from the garden! Later in the week when we confessed that we'd bought some eggs, she quickly exchanged our store bought eggs for fresh farm eggs declaring the ones from the store were only good for baking. Anyway, the apartment was extremely clean and comfortable. The kitchen was adequately equipped to make breakfast and simple dinners which was all we needed. The big surprise for us Americans was to see that there were screens on the windows!
This is a working farm, so visitors need to realize that there are farm sounds and smells (we liked that part!). For the first few mornings we were woken up pretty early by a cow mooing followed by a rooster. We soon fell back to sleep though, as it really was very quiet. Rebecca provided great restaurant recommendations, and had put together a book with suggested activities, possible hikes and other information about the area. We took a wine tour with Gusto wine tours and also a cooking class with her friend Letizia of la Madonna del piatto, that were both really great. We were able to stay for a few extra days after the week was up as the apartment was free, and Rebecca also let us use her computer to look for a place to stay closer to Rome for our last night in Italy. Brigolante isn't super luxurious, but it is in a beautiful spot, well located for touring Umbria, welcoming, and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

Brigolante is an agritourismo about 6 km north of lovely Assisi. Our apartment was, I believe, one of four on the property. It was very clean, comfortable and attractive. Spring cut flowers in the room were a nice addition. The location is well suited to touring Umbria. We had a very pleasant week at Brigolante and would hope to return.

This was our first trip to Brigolante and Umbria.....d hopefully the first of many. The accommodation was first class - clean, well maintained and with beautiful views over the surrounding hillside. Visiting Easter week, the accommodation was a convenient distance (5 mins by car) from Assisi to avoid the throngs of visitors.
Rebecca and her extended family were wonderful hosts. Our kids had lots of company and the freedom to enjoy it and as any travelling parent knows, if the kids are happy, we can relax and that makes a great holiday for everyone.
The rural location and the bustle of family life all around offer a great insight into the local way of life. The passion of the hosts for Umbria and determination to offer their guests a memorable Italian experience is obvious throughout the visit.
We had a wonderful time, genuinely hope to return soon and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone travelling to the area for a rural break with or without kids.

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!

Check in was a little sketchy, we got there I believe early (2pm) our bad, so we went into Assisi which is absolutely amazing. Returned several hours later and found Rebecca in their apartment, and got ourselves settled. There were fresh eggs, a bottle of wine, jam and honey in the kitchen, how wonderful. The apartment itself was light and beautiful, I believe we stayed at La Logetta (sp?). The sitting area at the stop of the stairs is small but lovely and a good place to have a glass of wine at the end of the day. Furnishing and bed were very comfortable. Obviously this is Agritourism but be aware that you are right across the small dirt road from a cow /pig barn, on the first day they were cleaning it out and the smell of ammonia was very strong, after the first day it went away, certainly not a problem since that's what you are doing, just a factor. (We live on a ranch with horses, goats and chickens, so we get it) We had a lovely stay, and Rebecca brought us pesto that was absolutely great. The family works hard to keep the farm beautiful and productive. We had one hitch, a lightening storm hit the area, and the power was out for about 4 hours. We rolled with it, until we discovered that the lights were on in the main apartment of the owners below. We contacted them and the electricity came back on (we contacted them with another couple who was staying in the apartment below who were equally confused). We were on our own with that, but hey, agritourismo. So overall we had a good stay, went to Assisi every day, and one day had a wonderful trip to the Adriatic and had a blast. We wish Rebecca the best, it is a beautiful setting, close to Assisi, which was for us, the high point of a month long trip.

Amazing farmhouse appartments.
Very nicely remodeled with all the necessary amenities (and much more).
We were possitively surpriced by a welcome basket of homemade and home-grown products, including olive oil, wine, farm-fresh eggs, fresh-cut garden greens.
Mountain bikes were also available but unfortunately we didn't have time to use them.
We wished we had stayed longer.
Reecca, the american owner/host is very nice and helpful.
Nothing to negative to say. I highly recommend this place.
PS: Note that a car is required as the location is off-the-beaten-path.
