We were so lucky to be able to stay at this apartment. I cannot recommend it enough! Our apartment in the abbey was very comfortable with a well-appointed kitchen and bathroom - and frescoes on the ceilings! The gardens surrounding the abbey are spectacular. We spent most of our day sitting outside and sighing at the beauty :) Annalisa is a great host and was extremely helpful.
We didn't have a car and were using public transport, which made getting to the abbey from Perugia a bit tricky. But Annalisa was extremely helpful and this place was well worth the challenge. I only wish we had more time to spend there. I will be going back for sure!
OMG! If you have the opportunity to stay in this apartment BOOK IT! And stay at least 3-4 days, even then you will be sad to leave. It is beyond superlatives, like living in a museum. The frescoes on all ceilings are 15th century (16th?) and amazing, better than most we've seen in museums. The Abbey is much older. Everything is exquisite, decor, furnishings, the Abbey, the gardens, and the hosts. So friendly and welcoming. The restoration of this apartment is top quality and impeccably clean. We have been touring Italy for two weeks so far and staying in this Abbey has been the hands down highlight of our trip so far.
There are many things to see and do in this area, Siena is close by, Assisi and Perugia as well. Many great medieval hill towns, great country walking, nice big lake all close by.
We only regret that we only stayed 3 nights, it was too beautiful to leave, and the hosts were so wonderful. I took hundreds of photos of the Abbey inside and out, beauty beyond words.
Thank you Annalissa and Francesco! Your beautiful restoration work is amazing. We were in awe our entire visit.

Most magical place we stayed since we're using AirBnB. From the first sight on you feel like you're going back in time. The apartment is well arranged and has all the necessary and more.. The frescoes are simply amazing and unique. Spending time in the wonderful garden was a pure delight. Anytime again...
Un lugar maravilloso en un lugar mágico donde se respira aire puro y donde el lugar es puro arte y poesía. Annalisa y Francesco han hecho un sueño realidad. Si quieres despegarte del mundo ven a disfrutar este tesoro escondido en un pedacito pintoresco de Umbria!
A wonderful place in a magical place where you can breathe fresh air and where the place is pure art and poetry. Annalisa and Francesco made a dream come true. If you want to get away from the world, come to enjoy this treasure tucked away in a picturesque bit of Umbria!
Un posto meraviglioso in un luogo magico dove si può respirare aria fresca e dove il posto è pura arte e poesia. Annalisa e Francesco ha fatto un sogno si avvera. Se si desidera allontanarsi dal mondo, venite a godere di questo tesoro nascosto in una pittoresca parte dal Umbria!
This place is even better than the photos (we tried our damnedest to take some, but it pales on comparison to the actual place). Annalisa was very helpful and responsive, and gave us great local recommendations.
Some reviews mention the bathroom location and some other minor inconveniences, but consider that you are staying somewhere that is 3x older than the United States. The abbey has been beautifully maintained, and you get a feel for what life may have been like back then. The amenities provided are more than enough to enjoy the beautiful Italian countryside, and I cannot recommend this historic site of an apartment highly enough.
We felt privileged to stay in this beautiful Abbey. Our first impressions were wow, wow and amazing.
It would have to be our perfect Italian air bnb experience in 7 weeks.
Lovingly restored Abbey and beautiful gardens. 2 nights wasn't long enough.
We would LOVE to come back to see you ongoing renovations.
Thank you to a beautiful couple.
L'abbazia è una struttura suggestiva, quasi fuori dal tempo. In questa cornice eccezionale, l'appartamento è delizioso, luminoso e immerso nel verde. Annalisa e suo marito sono una coppia piena di iniziative con un sincero amore per l'abbazia, sono stati ospiti gentili ed accoglienti. Grazie a questo luogo incantevole e alle bellezze dell'Umbria, il nostro soggiorno è stato molto piacevole.
