The most peaceful place on earth.Posted Jul 2, 2013
Pros: Everything, the location, the building , the history, the food, the peace and quiet.
Location: About a mile from the main road, winding up a narrow road, nestling in the side of a mountain with fantastic views across the valley .
The most amazing hotel we have ever stayed in,anywhere in the world. Being here in this restored Benedictine Monastery is an experience we shall never forget. Family owned and run nothing is too much trouble. Our room for three nights was incredible, apparently all 19 rooms are different, ours had an old stone fireplace and stone cubby holes with a wooden and beamed ceiling,just as it was when a Monks cell in the 15th century. The views out across the valley from the cell like windows were stupendous. Eating breakfast in the sun drenched cloisters was a wonderful way to start the day. The restaurant although physically a part of the building is a seperate entity,owned and managed by a couple of ladies who are obviously foodies of the highest order. Each night we had something different, beautifully cooked and presented, all local produce. The peace and tranquility was something to be believed, a 9th century church as part of the buildings, added to this sense of wonderment and provided an answer to why Monks would choose to live here, miles from anywhere. If you want peace you will find it here big style!

Lovely surroundings, most friendly staff. Not many things to do ... but is the right place to enjoy being immersed in mediaeval ambience.

Incredible Umbria experiencePosted Jul 9, 2009
My family spent two nights at the Abbazia, and we didn't want to leave! The site is gorgeous, easy to find, close to Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto, etc, but secluded. It's like arriving in another world. The rooms were very nice, and we were able to have connecting rooms for the family. Waking up to breakfast in the cloister is a not-to-be-missed experience. We would stay here again at any given opportunity. What an amazing chance to experience something so authentic and peaceful.
