A little flat in an ancient house: the stone walls and the hearty welcome will feel you at home. The unpolluted and quiet ambient will encourage your spirit!
L'Albero del Riccio (The Porcupine Tree) is an old farmhouse built in the late '800.
It is located in an area of extreme tranquility and relax in the north of Umbria. Passignano is next to Perugia (25km) Assisi (45km) Cortona (20km) Florence (130km) Rome (200km).
Sonia and her family offer you the possibility of home cooking classes, knowledge of local produce and wine tasting tours of Trasimeno Lake.
The house has a big parking for your car. It's also easy to reach Passignano by train. We can pick you up from Perugia airport with a small extra charge.
L'Albero del Riccio is included in the Locande d'Italia guide by Slow Food. We have three apartments with fully equipped kitchen and private bathroom.
Sonia is a great host, provided us a bottle of wine and some pasta ingredients. It is tricky to find but if you follow the directions that Sonia provides on profile you will find it no problem. The view is spectacular and very relaxing to be in the country. Recommend 100%.
Although this house is not very easy to find, and it's location here is not exact, getting there definitely worth it. The house has the most spectacular view on the Trasimeno Lake, the best view out all the places we have stayed in. The apartment is much nicer than it appears in the fotos, and is very convenient. Sonia was perfect host. Wish we had time to stay there longer.
Nasco a Roma, sono sposata con Tonino da 32 anni e abbiamo una figlia, Miriam, di 29 anni. Dopo una vita frenetica nella capitale decidiamo di "mollare tutto" e venire a vivere a Passignano, il paese in cui sono nati i miei genitori, in Umbria. Qui il rumore più forte che si sente sono i grilli d'estate o l'abbaiare di Zoe (il nostro dolcissimo cane).
Siamo scappati da una città caotica, per questo consigliamo il nostro agriturismo a chi voglia staccare la spina e passare qualche giorno in completo relax.
I was born in Rome, I'm married to Tonino for 32 years and we have a daughter, Miriam, aged 29. After a hectic life in the capital we had decided to "drop everything" and we came to Passignano, in Umbria, the country where my parents were born. Here the loudest noise you hear are the crickets in the summer or the barking of Zoe (our sweet dog).
We fled to a chaotic city, for this reason, our farm is perfect for those who want to switch off and spend some time relaxing.
