Il Borgo is a characteristic farmhouse in open face stone situated on the gentle hills near Assisi. The property, dating to the 19th century, was in the past accommodation for pilgrims on their way to Saint Francis' town. The renovation, done at the end of the 90's, has maintained the internal room divisions. Original materials of the period have been used and the architectural characteristics of the house such as the arches, beams and open face stone have been kept. Parquet has been put in the bedrooms. Il Borgo overlooks the valley below and from its windows guests can admire the surrounding countryside and the town of Perugia. Its location allows guests to reach, in just a short time, the main centres of interest in the region such as Assisi, Perugia, Lake Trasimeno, Foligno, Todi and Orvieto. In the property, but with separate access and without sharing spaces, is an annex which is occasionally inhabited by the owners during the summer.
The house spreads out over three levels. The main entrance leads to the main kitchen, to a sitting room with soccer table and a bathroom with shower. Stairs lead down to the living/dining room with a large, arched fireplace. Both the kitchen and the living room have direct access to the garden. Next to the main entrance, with only outside access, is another entrance leading to the other two levels. On the first level is a large hall with two armchairs, two double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom with shower, one twin bedroom with joinable beds and one bathroom with shower. From the dining room one staircase lead to the third level. Alongside these one staircase are two double rooms, one with en-suite bathroom with shower, one twin bedroom with joinable beds and two bathrooms with shower and a disengagement with loft. Both from the inside and the outside of the house one enters a second wing with a double room and bathroom with shower on the ground floor. From this room an wooden staircase leads to the top attic floor with another double bedroom which has direct access to the third level. All the bedrooms have air conditioning.

The whole property of about 2 hectares is covered mainly by olive trees. The garden is about 4000 square metres and consists of a lawn, cypress trees and lavender and rosemary bushes. Between the house and the pool is a large gazebo with tables and chairs, the ideal spot for dining outdoors whilst admiring the panorama at sunset.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
