The deliberately evocative name of our small farm comes from a miracle that occurred in the immediate area, concerning the amazing obedience shown to St Francis of Assisi by a multitude of swallows.
Le Rondini di Francesco di Assisi is a true gem in the heart of Umbria’s green countryside, surrounded by gentle hills and with a charming view of Assisi, Mount Subasio and the surrounding villages. It’s an oasis of relaxation and wellness, ideal for families and anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
The central location, close to the main roads, provides easy access to Umbria’s main historic towns and villages: Assisi, Spello, Trevi, Montefalco, Foligno, Spoleto, Bevagna, Bettona, Deruta, Torgiano, Gubbio, Perugia, Corciano, the Sanctuary of La Verna... and many other places and activities to discover: the wineries along the Sagrantino wine route, mills with the new olive oil of Assisi, Lake Trasimeno, Clitunno Park, the Frasassi Caves, the Marmore Falls, educational farms, horse riding, rafting, the Franciscan Route and trails, “Umbria by Bike” tours, Activo Park in Scheggino, hot air balloon trips, a ride on the "Nature and Steam" train... all to ensure our guests have new and amazing experiences.
The property, with its own shaded parking and full Wi-Fi coverage providing free internet access, has 10 apartments of 50 m2 each, elegantly furnished and equipped with every comfort. They all have their own private entrance and are built in the country villa style: wood-beamed ceilings with exposed timbers, and a balcony or patio for outdoor dining. They come with a 32-inch flat-screen TV and of course Wi-Fi.
Outside, you can relax on 3000 m2 of shaded lawns with a brand new canopied gazebo and a beautiful pool featuring a 4-metre-wide spa-whirlpool and a large solarium; a true gem with 14 x 7 m of turquoise water set in 10 hectares of countryside, with green spaces and games specially provided for children.
On sunny days you can have lunch in the park, cooking delicious meat on the property’s barbecue, or enjoy the breakfast buffet al fresco with our “zero km” food while enjoying a spectacular view; in the summer months, our pool is the setting for "Tastings in the Garden", with background music, organised to let you taste typical local products and our oil, produced directly from the 300 olive trees surrounding the property.
