We spent a lovely week staying in the Borga Calderba. The architecture of the tower was very beautiful and the views of Assisi from the windows and garden absolutely stunning. It was also a very good base to visit the gorgeous Umbrian hill town nearby. Anthea very kindly gave us some freshly laid eggs from her chickens and showed us the local suoermarket.We would definately recommend staying here if you are looking for peace and simplicity.
The property is perfectly situated on a shady hill overlooking Assisi. Our days were spent sightseeing nearby or just relaxing, and many evenings were spent in the garden, admiring the view. The accommodation is very comfortable with everything we needed. We were greeted on arrival by the charming owner, who gave us lots of tips for our visit to the region. The town of Santa Maria degli Angeli is within easy walking distance for a meal or to view the basilica. Highly recommended.
This is an absolutely stunning place to stay, the photos don't even do it justice! We spent the first week of our honeymoon here, it's very peaceful and relaxing, and romantic if you're a couple! The location is tranquil without being too remote, only a 20-30 minutes walk into Assisi. Self catering was so great as we were on a budget, and Andrea took us to a local supermarket to buy lovely local produce. We also had fresh eggs everyday from the hens roaming around! A perfect holiday, would highly recommend.
Everyone who is looking for a beautiful place (with a stunning panoramic view of Assisi, sitting in deckchairs or at table under large oak trees) and a holiday house doing good by its lovely architecture and spacy, well-proportioned rooms and by its absence of any chichi will be perfectly right here. Thanks a lot for a very pleasant stay!
