On our road trip this year we wanted to visit Assisi and hence spent 1 night in a hotel nearby. We chose Il Bastione in Spello. Driving to the Agriturismo (which is up a hill in the countryside), created some uncertainty if our GPS was taking us in the right place. But just as we reached the top of the hill, we saw this imposing structure surrounded by olive trees with magnificent views of the village below. In Bastione is an example of a finely restored building and boasts a wonderful pool/deck area. The location is peaceful and the views are unforgettable. Jacopo and his father Luciano, who run this place, surely have something to boast about. The rooms are clean and adequate. Breakfast was one of the best we had in Italy. We also opted for dinner on the day of our arrival, this was a genuine expression of Umbrian cuisine and was well priced. For those who like walking, the surrounding area has some great paths, with one leading directly to Assisi (approx 2 hrs). A visit to Spello is also advisable.

We stayed at Il Bastione to meet up with relatives from Canada who had been to a fantastic wedding the prior weekend.
We travelled from Perugia Airport and took at while to find its location on the hillside......our initial reaction on its location and ambience was WOW!
We stayed for nine nights. The host and his family were excellent and could not do any more to make us welcome.
We ate several evenings in the restaurant....the food cooked by the family was generally their own produce from the farm....and was amazing! The wine served with the meal was delightful and produced by another member of the family.
Breakfast was included in the price and was typically Italian in style and had lots of home cooking included... The coffee was really good ...all superb.
The accommodation was all of a very high standard and reflected the historic nature of the farm building.
There were areas to relax internally and externally...including a superb pool with panoramic views over the valley plain far, far below.
Pros.....all was good
Cons.....none except that we always given too much food with every meal.

The location of the farm does mean that you really need a car to get to Spello or other towns nearby....you can't rely on the only local taxi firm...who was far too expensive!

We had a wonderful time at Il Bastione. We had drinks and snacks and a wonderful wedding dinner. The staff were great. The cooking was marvellous. We didn't stay but the guests all spoke highly of it. It has marvellous views. They catered for a vegan with aplomb.

We LOVE Il Bastione! Since our visit there in August 2016, we haven't stopped talking about how great it was and how much we're looking forward to going back. Jacopo and his family are genuinely warm, hospitable people with generous souls and amazing earnestness about their agriturismo. We felt like we were staying with our favourite family, especially Nonna, who positively stole my heart. And, my god, her cooking! We dined in house 4 of the 5 nights we stayed, in the glorious communal dining room. We are devoted foodies, and dining is central to every trip we take. Every bite here was exquisite, especially anything with pastry. Each meal started with antipasto plate that was a meal by itself, especially the amazing wild green pastry rolls. (I'm dreaming about them in my sleep). The soups (different each night) were so full of flavour, the pasta... I could go on but I'm sure I'll run out of room (just like my belly did each night). Our huge suite had views overlooking the olive trees and valley below with ancient stone ceiling, very comfy bed and modernized bathroom. The lounge room was tailor made for my husband, who often read in the big leather chair in front of the fireplace. Every detail was immaculate and lovingly taken care of. And then there was Jacobo. He treated us like long lost cousins, or better - he graciously went out of his way to help us with phone calls and advice, and with my husband's disability issues. In other news, the area is great for sightseeing, truffle hunting and exploring the Strada dei Sagrantino. We are already planning our 2017 Italian trip around visiting Il Bastione - can't wait!

This is a very special family-run farm-stay. Everything is incredible - the medieval building, the views, the food and particularly the warmth and generosity of the hosts. It is a little hard to find at first, but well-worth the effort! We will never forget our time here.
