Visiting Assisi in 2014 for what was to be a 7 day visit before a 7 day visit to the the Almalfi Coast I came across Anne Robichaud of Annes Italy by accident and lets just say… my seven day visit to Assisi turned into 14 days and Almalfi was out.
And its all Anne’s fault. Funny, Patience, Quirky, Compassionate, Kind, Welcoming, Interesting, Knowledgeable and Passionate about everything Umbrian… So.. that being said upon my next visit in Oct, 2016 where else to stay than at Anne’s country Cottage “Casa dell’ Arco , which is located next door to her Umbrian farmhouse.
Such an experience to see how rural Umbrians live on a daily basis. Located not to far from the town of Assisi, my stay at Casa dell ‘Arco was relaxing and gave me a sense of security and comfort knowing Anne and her husband Pino were very close at hand to help with planning, directions, recommendations and/or suggestions.
Always willing to help and guide one through their Umbrian experience, which by the way starts off upon arrival with some Fresh Umbrian edible goodies ready and laid out on your table when you arrive as well as a bottle of fine wine…Dont be surprised to hear a knock on your door to find Anne with home cooked Umbrian fare for your lunch or dinner.
I could go on and on and on…. about the virtues and pleasures of staying with Anne and Pino at their country farm. Truly a rewarding experience that i will remember for many years too come.
