A place where even ordinary things are charged with special emotion!
A place to visit at any time, in any weather…it will always be enchanting! Arriving in this tiny hamlet sunk amidst ancient woods it’s easy to lose track of time. Travelling the road that leads to the hermitage, the present goes out of focus and we suddenly find ourselves back in a distant time, a more serene time when values were more solid.
The monastery, now renovated and complete with all modern conveniences, features seven bedrooms and two flats (the first sleeping 2 and the second no less than 7); nevertheless in its details and in the flavours of the exquisitely prepared dishes, it skilfully preserves the values of the past.
Guests can meditate or read in utter relaxation in the peaceful church, stroll over the broad meadows, traverse the numerous footpaths of the Monte Tezio nature park, or relax in the sun admiring the panoramic view.
From the benches of the terrace, the ample view enables guests to decide on the destination for a delightful excursion, discovering the historic and natural beauties of Umbria and Tuscany, meandering through the valleys and hills to arrive at the glittering Trasimeno lake.
Situated in the heart of Umbria, within the Monte Tezio nature park in the Municipality of Perugia, this ancient structure provides an ideal centre for visiting the principal art cities of central Italy, such as Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Cortona, Arezzo, Siena, Spoleto, Orvieto and the Chianti area. It is also the perfect starting-point for discovering mediaeval hamlets and small villages which are less well-known but no less rich in attraction.
The structure of the Convent has not altered over the centuries. The old cells – now enlarged and provided with all modern comforts – are at the disposal of our guests.
In the ancient Church (built on a block of quartz the positive characteristics of which were evidently already known in the thirteenth century) guests may read or meditate.
In the former stables, now transformed into a small and atmospheric restaurant, visitors may enjoy good wine and savour the typical dishes of rural vegetarian cuisine.
The terraces located in the vicinity of the structure offer wonderful spots for repose, or for listening to the thousand voices of nature.
Seven splendid bedrooms and two small flats sleeping from two to six persons, each with a different theme and colours, with its own special atmosphere and an incredible view over the surrounding towns, the lake or the mountains. Furnished with austere elegance, and attention to every last detail.
All fully equipped with bathroom, heating, television, safe, and some with a kitchen corner, refrigerator-bar, fireplace and independent entrance.
