Holiday farm in Umbria with apartments and swimming pool located on a green hill, surrounded by olive trees, pines, fragrant lavender and rosemary bushes at only 7 km from Assisi. Casa Faustina is an intimate place, peaceful and opened on a wonderful panorama over the Umbrian Valley.
Casa Faustina is situated in the center of a 16 hectare naturally managed farm.We practice a natural and sustainable agriculture in accordance with the environment because we consider men, animals, plants and the earth as one harmonious ecosystem.
We produce a high quality extra virgin oil 100% natural that can be purchased directly from the farm. Tastings are offered to every guest. We care with passion for 1300 olive trees, some of which are centuries old. Do you want to come and visit us or help us during the olive harvest? We harvest manually in November with the help of some pneumatic accessories.
You will be surprised by our synergistic garden, a natural, sustainable and non-destructive cultivating method with no digging, ploughing or tilling, nor use of external inputs such as fertilizers or pesticides. Soil health is maintained by the selection of plants, mulching, and recycling of plant residues.
This type of organic agriculture gives us a rich production of vegetables of the season which are healthy an tasty.
We also have a black truffle production that we collect and prepare in our farm. From June, you can meet in the morning the « tartufaro » and his friendly dog returning from their walk with the bag full of truffles.
