2 Monastery Suites + 1 Monastery Lodge, 3 miles from central Spoleto….

With air-con (in the 2 suites) + WiFi (throughout) + 2 dish-washers + washing machine

2 luxury suites on opposite sides of an upper landing, up 10 steps, in a detached cottage, next to the private pool. Next door and directly opposite the pool, is the Monastery Lodge.

In a totally tranquil environment, this spiritual place will nurture your soul. In this place of pure peace, you will harmonise with Nature, calm your inner being and touch eternity. You will restore relationships, mend wounds and deepen your commitment to a life worth living. All these changes will occur without awareness.

Rustling trees, bird song, splashing water, a drowsiness evoked by a perfumed fusion of a thousand herbs, spices and flowers, which, if captured in a bottle, would be priceless. Fine wines and fresh produce……asparagus, fresh Buffalo mozzarella, the tastiest tomatoes on the planet, cheeses laced with Sagrantino and mixed with truffle, the greenest and tangiest of thick olive oils. Arrange these health-giving, tasty ingredients onto plates, pop open a Spumante and, indulge yourselves !

If Heaven exists, this is it !

SUMMARY

The Monastery Suites/LUXURY, consist of 2 totally self-contained suites, with no shared areas, entirely occupying a detached cottage, each suite on opposite sides of the cottage with a central staircase dividing them. Then, the next door cottage is the Monastery Lodge.

SUITE A contains :

1 large sitting/dining room with a fully fitted kitchen + dish-washer

1 Master bedroom with a large double bed

1 mezzanine floor with 2 single beds

1 shower room.

SUITE B contains :

1 large sitting/dining room with a fully fitted kitchen + dish-washer

1 Master bedroom with a large double bed

1 mezzanine floor with 2 single beds

1 shower room.

The suites are twin versions of each other. The front door of the house opens onto a central staircase and the suites are to the left and right of the landing at the top of the stairs.

THE LODGE, opposite the pool, contains :

1 double bedroom with large double bed

1 large sitting/dining room

1 separate fully fitted kitchen/diner,

1 shower room.

So, in total, The Monastery Suites + The Lodge contains :

3 sitting/dining rooms

3 fully fitted kitchens (1 in a separate dining room).

3 double bedrooms, each with a large double bed

3 shower rooms.

And, there is a utility room between the 2 cottages that contains a washing machine and ironing facilities (plus a wine cellar). 

Certainly, you would be hard pressed to get a more tranquil environment than this……and so much space. And, in a perfect location, just 1 km from one of the best country restaurants in the area, Due Querce, which does the best pizza in the world and has an extensive menu, all at great local rates, frequented by celebs “incognito” because it is so beautiful…..you eat alfresco in fabulous gardens. And, it is a lovely and relaxing walk through the olive groves.

Rome, Perugia and Ancona are the nearest airports – Perugia being the nearest – 40 mins away, Rome 1 hr 20 mins, the same for Ancona.

Restaurants and shops are in San Giacomo, about 5 mins drive, but best in Spoleto, 15 mins drive, where there are hundreds in a very beautiful setting.

So, you are 6 miles from central Spoleto on the side of Spoleto towards Assisi. Couldn’t be bettered !

Romantic couples or family/friend reunions……

Romantic couples with or without children or, if you wish to book both suites (at a discounted rate), extended family and/or friend reunions. Each suite can sleep up to 4 persons. However, each suite is ideal for 1 couple + 2 smaller children because the 2nd “bedroom” is on a mezzanine floor above the master bedroom. The entrance to the mezzanine is from outside the master bedroom to maximise privacy.

Please note that if you are a couple wishing for solitude, it is easy to find it here. The grounds are large and you can tuck yourselves away.

If you have small children, we provide baby alarms that will keep you connected with your baby, when s/he is sleeping inside, while you enjoy the balmy night by the pool, or, under the trees, just 15 metres away.

And, for family/friend reunions, then, both Monastery Suites + the Lodge are perfect. Masses of space and privacy for up to 10 persons – extra single beds can be placed in any of the sitting rooms and the sitting/dining room in the Lodge can be arranged to seat 10 persons.

Enrico, the owner and our partner….

Enrico was a top pilot for Italy. Before joining Alitalia, he flew the fastest and highest plane in the world, often venturing into outer space ! Up the lane from the Monastery, is an aerodrome, where Enrico can arrange special local flights for you in his friend’s aeroplane !

NOTE ABOUT THE POOL

While the pool is private and is mainly for your exclusive use. The family owners MAY use the pool every now and then. However, the pool and the pool area is easily large enough for everyone and the family are very refined and friendly.
