Welcome to Agriturismo “Alla Madonna del Piatto”. Our home is a small eco-friendly B&B and vacation rental near Assisi, a UNESCO world heritage site in Umbria, Italy. All rooms of our centuries-old farmhouse have magnificent views of the Umbrian green hills and of Assisi’s St. Francis basilica. We produce delicious extra virgin olive oil and offer fun, hands-on cooking classes in our beautiful kitchen with a view of the Umbrian countryside. Visit us to enjoy the quiet countryside as well as a unique experience of Italian family life.

Your home away from home in Umbria

We, Letizia and Ruurd are your hosts at Agriturismo Alla Madonna del Piatto together with our daughter Tea, dog Google and cat Betty. Former research entomologists, we have lived in many countries and traveled to many more before settling down in this ancient old building. Over the years we have transformed it into a home filled with character and comfort. Share a day in our kitchen to learn to cook like a local, or ask us where to find the best wineries. We will be always happy to help. Read more


Comfortably green

Ever since we have started our agriturismo – 16 years ago – we have committed ourselves to create an authentic experience of home hospitality for our guests as well as reducing our impact on nature. Not only we produce most of the energy we need, but we have preserved the original architecture and furnished every room with vintage furniture and natural materials. Sustainability for us also means supporting the local community. We love to introduce our guests to every aspect of our culture: the extraordinary art, the food and wine producers, the artisans, the village festivals and seasonal celebrations. Read more


Things to do in Umbria

Umbria offers a variety of things to do and see. Assisi is centrally located, therefore it’s an ideal base to visit our region.

Over the years we have accumulated quite a collection of local information that is available exclusively to our guests. Upon your arrival, aside from offering advice on sightseeing, we are more than happy to help you find and arrange all sorts services and activities. If you wish to try something a little different – perhaps a truffle hunt or a pottery tour – we have something for you. Learn about our day trips and cooking vacations.
