5 km away from Assisi, nestled in the hills among majestic olive trees and vineyards, in the quiet Umbrian countryside but conveniently close to the main cities of tourist and cultural interest, La Pergola holiday home is the ideal place for a relaxing wellness retreat.
The holiday home overlooks a beautiful park with a swimming pool, equipped with various facilities for your leisure: barbecues, children's playground, and private car park with disabled access. Small pets are welcome!
Upon request, La Pergola guests can participate in guided tours, nature walks, seminars and short courses on mental and physical wellbeing.
The holiday home
La Pergola is the result of the makeover the Elisei's family home underwent; the very home where they had raised their children, who grew up together with the oak trees, olive trees and Holm oaks that surround and protect the property. Only the old pergola, under which their grandfather would sit and rest after a hard day's work, did not withstand the ravages of time.
The name chosen for the business is a tribute to the memory of our farmers, who cared for thevineyards, making them grow in such a way as to create a shady area where to rest during hot summer days and obtain tasty grapes during harvest time.
Today, La Pergola is no longer managed by the Eliseis, who were forced to retire due to age.
Their children did not take over, as they already had their own enterprises.
The facility is now managed by the company “La Torre”, whose bylaws include social activities among their purposes, and who intend to continue to manage the holiday home just as the Eliseis had done.
The company secretaries are at your disposal for information, reservations, and administrative matters, whereas Irene is in charge of accommodation, and domestic organisation and management.
La Pergola will continue to provide the same services as ever, with all the modern facilities in a warm and cosy atmosphere.
The large terrace overlooks the valley, where the dome of the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, the church that contains the Porziuncola, the little chapel restored by St. Francis himself, stands tall.
The embankments that surround the holiday home offer a wonderful view and are the ideal place to rest, read, take a break on the wooden benches on the lawn under the shadow of the trees.
We have also plenty of space where your children are free to run and play freely.
For the sporty ones, and when the summer heat gets high, we have a beautiful swimming pool, located on the left hand side of the main building in a more private position, among cypresses, pines and laurels. The open-air shower allows enjoying moments of pure relax immersed in nature.
The restoration of the property has taken into account the materials and the appearance of the typical houses of our region, thereby allowing access for disabled guests, who can enjoy all the services and facilities.
The discreet but effective lighting allows reaching La Pergola easily, even after sunset, and to return there easily passing through a small village developed around the ancient castle, which once was a fortress during medieval times.
Cultural events and local festivals evoke its history and are an opportunity to have fun and enjoy a wonderful culinary experience.
