At the foot of Assisi, “Il Guado” is an old farmhouse from the early 1400 with a magnificent view over the city of Assisi and the Basilica of San Francesco. Initially convent, was also a stopping point for travelers, in fact ford, before crossing the river Tescio (a tributary of the river Chiascio), on whose banks now comprises a natural and relaxing green path in a wooded area , which, starting from the house, comes to the gates of the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.

Beautifully restored, with garden and swimming pool surrounded by lush plants and flowers, combining the most modern comforts (air conditioning, private parking, swimming pool, internet, tv room …) to taste and simplicity.

In a very special and unique, almost idyllic, mingled perfumes of history and, in direct contact with nature, you can have relaxation, tranquility, and swim, if you like, long walks and bike rides. Hence our motto is “Live naturally.”

In fact, you may be in harmony with nature and enjoy its wonders, listening, observing, smelling, escaping from the chaos of the city to meet up and find your own inner balance and physical, in a healthy environment, and bucolic centered spirituality and charm of the town of Assisi and St. Francis and St. Clare, pervading the whole surrounding area and that can not be done less than feel and breathe. “Al Guado” is only 4 minutes by car from Assisi-center, but, if desired, the road can be traveled on foot or by bicycle for those who love walking, it is a practical, attractive rectilinear crossing the countryside assisina leads directly to Assisi, arriving at the foot of the Basilica of San Francesco, where among other things develops the famous “Forest of St. Francis of Assisi.” The B & B is close to the Forest of St. Francis of Assisi, opened on November 11, 2011, through which you can enjoy a pleasant walk among the landscapes from which St. Francis took the very important and well-known message of harmony between Man and Nature .

Here “Al Guado” there are wholesomeness, simplicity and naturalness, yet there is logistic proximity to urban centers surrounding for every preference and need, including the renowned Umbria Exhibition Centre in Bastia Umbra, where they have important national events (Santa Maria degli Angeli, Bastia Umbra and Umbria Fiere center, Rivotorto, Cannara, Spello, Perugia, Gubbio, etc..).

…. At this point it is noted that this is the “kingdom” of Giovanna, who passionately care about the plants and flowers, the animals (the sweet dog Isabeau and cats foundling) and most of the guests and the rich and genuine breakfast for them, featuring homemade jams and cakes!!

So that atmosphere enveloping Il Guado acquires a familiarity and a very special warmth.

il B&B si trova in una ottima posizione, vicino a Bastia Umbra Assisi, con vista spettacolare verso Assisi. Le camere sono molto confortevoli, in stile rustico, molto pulite. La titolare una persona squisita, pronta a soddisfare e coccolare gli ospiti a colazione, sfornando torte, marmellate fatte in casa, etc….
