The Umbrian countryside is absolutely stunning, and Alla Madonna is the most idyllic place to experience it. Up on a hillside outside of Assisi, it's a quick drive to town but feels a world away from the crowded tourist sites.
Our stay at Letizia's immaculate agriturismo inn was everything we wanted (except for maybe not staying longer.) She and her husband are hospitable hosts and take pride in their incredibly beautiful restored farm house. The rooms are minimal and simple but perfect for the setting. The highlight of our stay was definitely the several hour cooking class that my husband and I took. We made a feast with Letizia's assistance and enjoyed the fruits of our labors on the terrace overlooking Assisi. We feasted so much on our well earned lunch that we skipped dinner that night.
Of course Assisi is known the church of St. Francis, but there's a rich and beautiful countryside to be found just outside the city walls, and Alla Madonna is the place to experience it.More
