“We had a wonderful stay at Annie’s farm and country apartments this past summer! The setting is beautiful, and the kids absolutely adored all the animals of the farm, including the kitties and dogs, numerous goats, chickens and their signature donkeys. What a great place for a family with children of any age to stay! The rooms are pristine and utterly charming, with lots of delicious little treats set out for us in the kitchen. At night, we fell asleep to the gentle sounds of the cowbells from the adjacent farm. The farm is quite close to Assisi but remarkably cooler than the town, so it was nice to retreat to her place after a fun but hot day of exploring Assisi and other hillside towns. Anyone traveling to central Italy must not miss the remarkable town of Assisi, and Annie’s is a perfect place to stay when you do this.”

“This is a great apartment and a wonderful experience: so much more than some silly hotel! We loved hearing the animals nearby too.”

“Dear Anne,
Thank you very much for your warm hospitality and kind words the night of our arrival. Umbria has been a beautiful and historically rich interlude in our time between Rome and Venice……. Thank you also for the world tour. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to witness firsthand a way of life on which the curtain is closing and of which few of my generation will ever get see.

Thank you for our wonderful tour of the ‘rural life’ – we enjoyed the stories, visit with your neighbors and the lovely lunch. Our stay on your form was a peaceful respite and we are sorry to go. Thank you for your hospitality and our delicious meal with you on the first evening-we marvel at how you put together such a feast in such short order. Best peaches ever. Many thanks!”

We were especially touched meeting Peppe and his family and your stories of how you shared in Umbria rural life. The effort you all experienced together made not only experiences for you but lifelong friends. Pace e bene.”

“Dear Anne,
There are truly no words that can explain your hospitality! Your stories…….. are so very precious. Chiarina & Rosanna are darling and their food and welcome with us, unbelievable! (The laughs, tears shed over special “sheep” that will never be sold!).
Thank you for offering us the Basilica as well. That was one of the points of discovery for our group and I can’t imagine now what the world have been without you– Blessings to you and Pino and the family.”
