    "Idyllic Umbrian experience "

    04/19/2019

    This is our second time back. The first time we missed our opportunity to write a review. Our first stay was outstanding. We were so impressed with the authenticity, hospitality and beautiful surroundings we wanted our friends to have the same exceptional experience. We were fortunate this year to celebrate a birthday in our favorite place to stay in spello. It was just as outstanding as this first time and our friends truly enjoyed their stay. Thank for your kindness.

    "A true Umbrian experience! Highly recommended!"

    11/01/2018

    Agriturismo Il Bastione is our favorite place to stay when we visit Umbria. It is a true Italian jewel set among thousands of the family-owned olive trees, with beautiful panoramic views, lovely comfortable accommodations, and wonderful family- prepared meals using ingredients from their land. It has the atmosphere of a calm, welcoming retreat and, for us, is a place where we come to recharge our batteries. I highly recommend staying here while you explore Umbria.

    Jacopo and his family have always greeted us warmly, as if we were part of their family. From the moment we are greeted, to the minute we leave, we are always treated like honored friends and they make us feel like Il Bastione is our home away from home!. The family is always available to any need, and ready to share their home as well as their knowledge of the surrounding area.

    The family obviously cares about the comfort of their guests and provide clean, tastefully decorated rooms furnished with comfortable beds. The well-kept medieval building was built in the 12th c. as a fortress, and later it was used as a hunting lodge by a noble Perugino family. The dining room reflects the rustic Umbrian style, and with its large fireplace, arched ceilings and interesting antiques, it is a warm and cozy place to enjoy our breakfasts and dinners, which are served by Jacopo, his father, and other family members. It is a magical place.

    The argiturismo is located high up on a hillside, hidden from traffic and the nearby towns. However, its location is perfect, as it is perched a stone's throw from the medieval walled town of Spello, 10 minutes from Assisi and an easy drive to Perugia. If you are a runner or hiker, the location is adjacent to the unspoiled Subasio Mountain Nature Reserve. Or , if you are a swimmer, the agriturismo's well maintained pool is big enough to allow you to swim full laps while enjoying the panoramic views from the valley below. For us, we enjoy an evening's glass of wine out on the patio to watch the spectacular sunsets before dinner.
    During our last visit, it was olive harvest time, and the family was working hard to collect their olives. Jacopo came in each evening after working in the groves, and greeted us as if he hadn't already put in a full day's work at olive harvesting! Then, he joined his grandmother in the kitchen to help prepare dinner, while his father made us comfortable and served us wine. They provide home-cooked, abundant breakfasts and dazzling dinners !!
    You must bring your appetite! Breakfast is a treat and a daily celebration! The delicious home-made pastries, eggs (provided on request), homemade yoghurt,, fruits, breads, coffee?. were all made with fresh local ingredients beautifully cooked and served.

    Dinner , as well, is prepared using ingredients from their farm, including their own olive oil. The four course meals, truly extraordinary, are prepared by Nona Anna, Jacopo and other family members. Everything was local and seasonal: from antipasti of pecorino cheese, cured meats, ,to delicious soups, entrees and desserts.
    Thank you Jacopo, and your family for once again making our visits to Agriturismo Il Bastione a true Italian experience, and so enjoyable!

    "Stunning views, refined ambience and excellent cuisine."

    10/10/2017

    My partner and I stayed there for five nights. It is impossible not to give in to the charm of this ancient fortress of 1300, faithfully restored, cared for in every small detail and located in the Subasio Park, with breathtaking views and a few kilometers from the most beautiful Umbrian cities. The traditional Umbrian cuisine of Jacopo and Grandmother is of the highest level, curated and embellished by raw materials and products from the Sassovivo Agrarian Company. Reception and service with professionalism and attention; peculiarities that reflect the passion that Jacopo and Luciano bring each day in their work. We will definitely go back to the Spello Bastion and, in the meantime, we highly recommend it.

    What to say that it has not been said and written; Even what is written on the site corresponds to reality. Ideal for those who love nature and much peace; The kitchen (in every detail) is great.

    "Vera Umbria, passion"

    04/25/2017

    Bridge April 25, 2017. Accepted in beautifully by the owners who showed us throughout the residence and given historical notes of place. The passion for this house and for the cultivation of their olive grove shone through in every word. Dinner is served in the room topped by a vault of ancient stones with local flavors cared for and in excellent table service, fireplace and soft music in the background. The upper floor retains an old room all to see. The pool has a view splendido.Abbiamo tasted their oil and it was not possible to buy a few bottles, has a special flavor and heady aroma. Try it on toast ... we just had dinner with that. The price is adjusted (will explain how it is produced, look at the oil site Spello). Their meats are kept in small cellar where it exits an incredible scent of cheese and other delicacies. If you want a place where things are done as they should come here. We had never been to Umbria, this place has helped to make it love so much. Vicenza family with two children about 10 years. Home away from Home !!

    "Wonderful!"

    01/02/2017

    Very friendly, accommodating host; very good tasting mainly from the products of our own farm! Wonderful country estate amidst the olive groves. Magnificent views from from this exposed position. Beautiful hiking trails with very original, natural flora and fauna! Even in winter, a good place to make a versatile, interesting, active and fun holiday. The weather was very nice. (Often 12 degrees Celsius in the sunshine, especially in the heights it was partly very warm and always clear.) Assisi and other spiritually and culturally interesting places from here are easily accessible by car. (Todi, Gubbio, Siena ...) We have a total of a beautiful, unforgettable week at Christmas spent here and felt very comfortable us.

    "Above and beyond all expections"

    10/07/2016

    We booked all of the guestrooms and the restaurant over a weekend for our wedding ceremony and dinner and our experience with Jacopo and his family at this exceptionally beautiful venue went above and beyond our expectations.

    Jacopo was a delight to work with and very responsive on the lead up to our wedding making us feel relaxed and confident that everything would go off without a hitch. And it did. Jacopo's entire family worked hard to make our wedding special and it was lovely that the family was excited for us and were genuinely thankful for us being there.

    The guestroom rate was fantastic and included the most generous breakfast. We also ate dinner in the restaurant and had a five course dinner including wine for 25 Euros. Wow.

    The only feedback is that there is only one taxi driver in town and Il Bastione is just slightly out of town. Unfortunately, the taxi driver is a rip off merchant but this is no fault of Il Bastione.

    We are already planning our next stay and it seems all of our friends are thinking the same.

    "Fabulous Experience with Lasting Memories!"

    07/04/2016

    Il Bastione was our favorite stay on our trip to Italy. the owners, Jocapo and his father and grandmother were absolutely wonderful...helpful, generous, and so warm and kind. Grandmother cooked everything from morning til night...a superb breakfast, all hand made, and a five course dinner that was out of this world!!! Request the Marriage Suite if it is open, and definitely take the breakfast and dinner option...it was an amazing value and superb! the site was also wonderful...well located, but out of the crazy of the town, beautiful olive groves, and a new pool!!
