The farmhouse is owned and operated by Manuele, a native of Perugia, helping Manuele to manage the farmhouse is his girlfriend Laura, who came to Perugia in 2007 from America to work as an English teacher. 

Laura helps with the administrative side of the job, while Manuele is ever busy sprucing up the farmhouse, making minor adjustments to ensure that our guests have the perfect farm experience! Grandparents Rita and Bruno still are key figures here! Both in their mid 80's, they  love taking care of the animals and being out in the country. Nothing can slow them down!

There to lend a hand with DIY projects from time to time is Manuele's father Silvano, while his mother Sarah does a fantastic job with the gardening. The farmhouse is assisted by seasonal volunteers found through helpx or workaway; this work exchange has allowed for the formation of many friendships and bonds over the years.

The volunteers provide a fun, unique atmosphere for guests while allowing them to forge their own travel experiences themselves.

Guest Reviews

The place is absolutely breathtaking, and the farmhouse is really homey and unique. It is unlike any other agriturismo I have stayed in. The staff were pretty cool, and Manuele and his girlfriend Laura were so helpful and nice, they even took us to the local cherry festival. Thanks guys! . Definitely stay here for a one of a kind experience.

Staff were super friendly, gave me heaps of ideas on what to do during the day and also took me out at night. absolute champs!!! Beds were so comfortable, own kitchen facilities with some food and drink included! Located in beautiful countryside and really easy to catch a bus into the city centre. Best bed and breakfast i have stayed in so far, really feels like your living in Perugia rather than just being a tourist there!

Perugia Backpacker was exactly what we were looking for! It's a quiet escape from the big cities and is still to town. There is great public transport into the town and back which is 20mins by bus. There's heaps to do in Perugia and around the farm you can walk through lovely countryside to a winery nearby or visit the local chocolate factory. The staff are great! So friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is really relaxed and you can do whatever you please!

The Farmhouse Hostel was incredible! Not only it is a working farm, with all types of animals (Horses, sheep, ponies, goats, chickens, donkey, bunnies, and cats), it is an ideal location to take a breather from the hectic big Italian city travel. We enjoyed the amazing eggs for breakfast, fresh from the chickens (you've never had such good eggs in your life!) and wine from the vineyard. Manuele was very welcoming, and Grandma Rita and Grandpa Ben were a wonderfully authentic Italian couple that wanted to share their world with us and learn about ours! That included mostly using our very limited Italian and teaching Grandma some English. :) This was absolutely the best hostel we have EVER been in!
