See location on a Google Map


Our home, "Alla Madonna del Piatto", is a small agriturismo, in the Umbrian hills. The centuries-old farmhouse overlooks the beautiful town of Assisi.

    All rooms have a magnificent views  of Assisi's world famous basilica, dedicated to St. Francis and housing some of Italy's most important art treasures.

    Our agriturismo is a quiet oasis both day and night, an ideal spot to unwind. You will awake every morning to the sights of the rolling Umbrian hills and the medieval town of Assisi perched on the Subasio mountain. You can linger for hours watching the sheep graze in the fields, sunbath on the terracotta-paved terrace or sip a glass of wine under the grapevine arbor.

    If on the other hand, you can tear yourself away from the garden and its panorama, our bed and breakfast is conveniently located to explore Umbria's beautiful medieval hill towns. Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Orvieto, Spoleto and Perugia, as well as Tuscany's splendid Renaissance city Siena, Cortona and the Chianti wine region are all within about an hour’s drive.

    If you enjoy walking, the Subasio natural park and the Franciscan Path of Peace and the Park are only minutes away.

The Moraiolo Apartment

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat and the comforts of a real home, the Moraiolo apartment provides a perfect setting for a vacation, a sabbatical or your own art, writing and meditation hideaway.

The apartment occupies part of our original 500 years old farmhouse. In the same farmhouse but with separate access we live and rent a few, quiet, B&B rooms.

The farmhouse is located a short distance from Assisi, about 15 min drive. Shops, open markets and all sort of services are available in Santa Maria degli Angeli which is also a 15 min drive down the mountain. Entirely renovated in 2013 and newly equipped, the self catering accomodation offers bright rooms with breath-taking views on the Umbrian countryside, space and privacy without isolation.

In addition, ours is one of the few truly eco-friendly farms in the area. We produce electricity and hot water with solar panels and heat the house with a state-of-art, powerful wood furnace.

The vacation rental has been tastefully decorated with vintage furniture which we have  collected during our travels and lovingly restored.

The dining room, master bedroom, studio and one bathroom with shower are on the ground floor. A smaller bedroom with beamed ceiling and a bathroom with bath tub are upstairs in the mezzanine. All the mattresses are new and of a excellent quality. For additional comfort, the bed linen and most of the bed covers we use are made of natural materials like cotton or wool. Bedrooms have either hanging space or a chest of drawers.

If you are staying for more than a week, we will change your bed linen and towels once a week.
The vacation rental is perfect for just the two of you. However there is privacy, space an comfort for another couple in the second bedroom as well as a sofa bed in the studio for children or young adults. 
If you love cooking, the kitchen has excellent, brand new equipment and easy access outdoor to enjoy the long summer nights.

We provide an outdoor table, chairs and sun loungers in a separate area our ample garden where you can enjoy spectacular views on our fields, olive groves and on on Assisi's Saint Francis Basilica sorrounded by rolling green hills.

B&B Rooms

The six B&B rooms of "Alla Madonna del Piatto" have been renivated with great attention to details, so that each has its own character. Every room is tastefully decorated with wrought-iron beds, antique cabinets and handmade fabrics. The two rooms on the ground floor are in the oldest part of the farmhouse and feature impressive stonewalls and beamed ceilings. The first-floor rooms are light, airy and offer breathtaking views of Assisi’s valley blanketed with meadows, forests and olive groves.

    All guestrooms have reading lights, beautifully tiled en-suite bathrooms and radiant heating beneath the terracotta floors. The position of the house high up in the hills (600 mt/1800 ft above sea level) guarantees cool nights even in the height of the summer. The vine-covered patio and terrace are perfect spots for al fresco picnics on summer evenings.

    You will enjoy breakfast in the large dining room decorated with colorful ceramics. There is a sitting area with open fireplace and a comprehensive collection of pictures and guidebooks to help you plan your vacation.

    For those who don't mind trading a few hours of sightseeing for the opportunity to spend a day in an Italian kitchen, we offer cooking classes in English.
