“A perfect place to stay close to Assisi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

A friend and I stayed at La Fornace for four days in May 2012. We stayed in I Papaveri, which was a spacious apartment containing two roomy bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, plus a good size living area with sofa and dining table, and a well-stocked kitchen area with cooker, fridge, dishwasher, etc. It had a homely feeling about it, with lots of wood everywhere, and everything was clean and fully functioning.

The building containing I Papaveri was one of several buildings set in lovely grounds, with plenty of space to sit on seats or lounge on the grass or walk around the farm and see the produce. There is also an outdoor pool, which was not open at that time of year.

We were made to feel immediately welcome, and there were friendly touches such as being offered coffee in the garden (at no charge) when we had returned in mid-afternoon one day. Wi-fi is available, but the signal was too low in the apartment, and seemed to extend not far from the comfortable communal lounge area. Typical Italian breakfast is available in the dining room.

La Fornace is just five minutes' drive from Assisi, and is well placed for visits to other historic cities and sights. When we checked out, we were each given a bottle of local wine as a leaving present. I would recommend La Fornace unreservedly for a visit to this lovely area of Umbria.

We stayed here for three days this past May, 2012. The buildings and grounds were beautiful and beautifully maintained. The room was clean and spacious, and it came with a complete kitchen, which we didn't use. The location is great, very close to Assisi and a good launching point for visiting other Umbrian hill towns. The hostesses were very accommodating and friendly, and the breakfast was great.

We stayed at La Fornace a few years ago. The setting is just below Assisi on beautiful grounds. The accomodations were clean, and comfortable. The hosts made us feel right at home. I would recommend this location to anyone who wanted a great place to stay while touring the surrounding countryside.

The date above is incorrect, but you didn't give me any other options. We travelled in July of 2007

Owners Bianca and Fabrizio made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Our apartment was a two bedroom with plenty of space for the dining and kitchen area. We were minutes away from quaint tourist towns; including Assisi, Bastia, Gubbio and Spello and within an hour or so of larger cities like Perugia, Deruta and Florence. The food at La Fornace was wonderful and the local wine was terrific. Everyone was very helpful and made a special effort to see that all our needs were met. We can't wait to go back.

Just 2 miles from Assisi, this lovely Agriturismo ranks as one of our most memorable Italian experiences. The rooms are spotless, well appointed and roomy. There are public rooms with stunning fireplaces, where, in the evening, one can share wine (grown on the estate) with friends. The host and hostess, Bianca and Fabrizio could not be more charming, welcoming or generous . The second day of our holiday, I lost my camera, and Fabrizio insisted that I use his for the duration of our stay.

The grounds are stunning with olive groves and vineyards and there is a lovely swimming pool. The Inn is perfectly located for day trips with easy access to Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Spoleto, Gubbio, etc. The staff is delightful and extremely helpful - we were given directions, restaurant recommendations and wonderful details about the local towns that we would never have known.

Did I mention that the price is amazing. Check out the website and do the math. La Fornace cannnot be beaten.

We thoroughly enjoyed this centrally located, lovingly updated agriturismo. It was the ideal place to relax and just hang out or to use as a home base to visit all the wonderful cities of Umbria. We traveled with several friends and it was wonderful to come together at day's end in the living room with a wonderful fire, great wine and treats waiting. I'd totally recommend La Fornace.

A great central location from which you can tour tour Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio and more!

The sleeping apartments were charming ,warm and well kept.

Dining under the baton of Sig. B. Panbianco was delicious! Not to mention the fun cooking classes we enjoyed!

And, best of all, our hosts Bianca and Fabrizio were delightful and accommodating in every way!

We'd go back in a heartbeat!
