Capannina lodging and refuge

Our story

This house is called Capannina much longer than you can remember. Since 1997 it is our home and since 2012 also rural hospitality; in particular for the refuge and replenishment of pilgrims on the Way to Assisi. The name Capannina had already marked our destiny.

Languages we speak






The service is very basic, but clean and efficient in the common room. An ideal and uncontaminated place for our friends, hikers and travelers who find replenishment and hospitality by us. The outdoor area is totally relaxing, with farm animals walking silently around you.

Dinner at the common table is prepared with local products or directly from our vegetable garden and farm. Abundant breakfast with jams made by us and it is not uncommon to find fresh bread comming out the oven.
