Villamena is about 5 kms from Assisi, the City of St. Francis, situated in the heart of the Umbrian hills. It is originally medieval. The name comes from a famous engraver, Francesco Villamena who lived there (1566-1624). The Covino family inherited the property from the Sbaraglini who were a noble family in the time of St. Francis, and decided to restore the property using traditional materials to maintain the charm and beauty of the hamlet within its surrounding countryside.
Villamena is located 450 metres high in the hills, and therefore has amazing views over the hills that are partly cultivated and partly forestry. The owners have prepared 25 itineraries for walking directly from Villamena…
…or to visit other parts of Umbria such as Spello, Bevagna, Montefalco and Gubbio. Villamena is in an excellent position to visit the most beautiful cities of Umbria and Tuscany. Rome and Florence are both accessible by train from Assisi.
