Picture this: you are sitting on a stone terrace, overlooking the rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside, a quilt of greens of various hues, and the yellows of the sunflower fields. In the distance, you can see a medieval castle perched atop one of the hills. The sun is setting. Jazz is pouring out of the 16th C. stone farmhouse behind you, and gently caressing the landscape with the smooth sound of the saxophone. You are tasting the earth's bounty on the plate before you -- and you know you will never taste food this good again. You are with your family. Overwhelmed by the beauty of the experience, you begin to weep. Such was a typical experience for me at Agriturismo il Geranio. The beauty of the landscape, and the excellence of the food was only matched by the great kindness and generosity of the hosts, Angela and Giovanni, their family, and the cook and owner, Giuseppina. One litmus test of the food, if you can't take my word for it, is this: the locals regularly went there to celebrate their most important occasions -- honeymoons, marriages, romantic getaways, birthdays. We remarked to Angela one night, "But...there's a party here every night!" In Italian, she replied, "Yes. And You'll remember us for this!" Indeed we have. And you will too. Grazie Mille! Peter, Claudia e Olivia.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Umbria is a land of farms houses, "The Geranio" since 1994 has been one of the first to inaugurate this new season in umbria region. Farm House Geranio comes from a family passion, to share stories and feelings with those who like to stop, slow down the pace of everyday life, perhaps before the fire with a glass of good wine. Find the time as a substance and not as a definition, that is "long life".Stop means, listen and hear what escape in haste, and is lost. Rediscover the pleasure of a chat in front of a dining table and enjoy typical regional dishes prepared with ingredients from our farm house. We offer the opportunity to stay in a place nestled in the hills of Umbria where peace, tranquility and mysticism represent the particular characteristics.The farm house is situated between Perugia and Gubbio, just 15 minutes from the international airport of St. Egidio and also at the center of the triangle Perugia - Assisi - Gubbio, a town within a few minutes.
