Farm Holidays in Assisi, Casa Faustina


Retreat Centre

We welcome groups to our holiday farm for courses, seminars and retreats. Casa Faustina has a long experience as a retreat centre with its large and beautiful spaces for groups. There are countless ways that allow guests here to experience peace and rest and the contact with the earth, the trees and the breath of the hills are simply a few examples.

You will find an intimate and quiet atmosphere with perfectly sized spaces reserved for group activities.

The pavilion

Amongst the olive trees is the 108 sqm pavilion with large windows and hardwood floor. This bright space allows practicing many group activities such as yoga, meditation and other kind of holistic activities.
The windows can be opened completely and are furnished with white curtains. This space has been designed so as to remain cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Open spaces

Casa Faustina is surrounded by flat, shaded, wide open spaces outside, such as the lush grass around the swimming pool with its young olive trees and the fresh pine area overlooking the breathtaking Umbrian valley. Here it will be easy for you to find a place to make bonfires or for observing the magical night skies.

The activities room

The underground room of 56 sqm with wooden floor is a perfect place for meetings and various activities. The room is cool in the summer and warm in the winter and can be obscured.

The restaurant

The restaurant holds 60 people comfortably seated at tables and can also function as meeting place. When the weather is lovely, outdoor dining is available and during winter, the fireplace is always burning to create a warm, homey atmosphere.

Groups are offered half board (breakfast and dinner) or full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) of gourmet vegetarian menus catered on buffet, which can be adapted to the personal requests of guests. Beverages (water and wine) are included with meals. Snack or lunch packages can be prepared upon request.
