Umbria is known as the “green heart of Italy”, and the totally unspoiled views that surround this fabulous retreat centre and it vast gardens and terraces are truly mindblowing.
Picture walls of stone aged by the centuries. Gardens of manicured lawns and olive trees. Hidden nooks and crannies with deep cushioned daybeds and hammocks. Forest paths and meandering streams to local waterfalls. The scent of lavender and rosemary filling the air.
Add a fabulous terrace bathed in sunlight. Aperitifs sipped on a verandah watching the setting sun. Candle-lit dinners, and calm nights under a star filled sky.
You'll never want to leave the grounds but if you do, all around, just beyond a crown of hills, stand Umbria’s many cities of art, abundant in their treasures, their elegant streets and traditions. So near, so far away...
