The Experience

An ancient hamlet on an Umbrian hilltop among olive, cypress, oak and pine trees. For hundreds of years a monastery, then a summer residence and hunting lodge of nobility. Staying here now is thanks to Professor Tullio’s mission to restore its six different buildings, and four towers, to their original, splendidly austere beauty. The result is an extraordinarily atmospheric ‘country resort’. Exposed worn beams and brick floors, oak doors and windows, high terracotta ceilings and metre-thick stone walls frame the comfortable suites and apartments distributed among the buildings. All have kitchen areas so you can self-cater or opt for breakfast in the gazebo, and dine in the rustic dining room – fresh pastas and truffles a speciality, and vegetables from the organic garden. In the fragrant grounds are a wellness centre and two swimming pools with bucolic views. All this mid-way between Rome and Florence and 20 minutes from Perugia – perched on the horizon opposite. Take an eco vineyard tour, a trip to Lake Trasimeno, explore beautiful medieval cities; visit cheese-makers, hunt for truffles; book a language or cookery course…

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Giuseppe Tullio

  • Art cities like Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Cortona, Gubbio and Orvieto are quite close. In the immediate surroundings there are medieval hamlets, monasteries and castles at times with beautiful frescoes in their chapels, including ours which date from 1315.
  • The military towers of Monticelli were built in 593 A.D. Until 774 the border between the Eastern Roman Empire and the Longobards was 40 meters away. The history of the place and magnificent landscapes will make of your stay a very special experience.
  • Monticelli is a walking and biking paradise. There are several listed forests around and one is even protected by the EU. The Trasimeno Lake is 10 minutes away and it is possible to walk and bike around it. Horse-back riding and golfing are also close.
  • 4 good wine and oil producers are within 2 miles. They like to do wine and oil tasting for our guests. One sells wine and oil to many international airlines, including BA. Visting cheese-factories and going truffle hunting is also possible.
  • It is our desire to transform your stay at Monticelli into a very nice holiday and into a source of special experiences and emotions. Look at our web site to see what we mean. Enjoying a dinner prepared by Paolo is for instance a real experience
  • Monticelli seems to be able to preselect the couples and families who like to spend their holidays there. They are all very nice and frinedly, interested in nature, culture and good food. As a result the owners often enjoy having dinner with them.
