The
Experience

Tucked behind a hill cloaked with vines, olives and woodland, this rambling stone house has a secluded countryside feel yet is just 15 minutes’ drive from Perugia.

Anna lives in the other half of the house and loves to share her local knowledge. Choose breakfasts from an a la carte menu and eat at separate tables in the conservatory or on the shaded patio; ask about light lunches and three-course dinners using vegetables and herbs from the garden. The cosy guest sitting room has drinks, books, games and music, so if you’re stuck indoors you’ll feel at home.

There are plenty of peaceful spots in the garden for reading, perhaps under the rose-covered arbour, or you can take a dip in the swimming pool. Anna can give you an itinerary for exploring the local area – abbeys, cookery courses, vineyards for wine tastings – including the extraordinary Tenuta Castelbuono, which is housed within an enormous copper sculpture.

Reviews

A lovely rambling old farmhouse surrounded by its own olives and vines, Casamassima is a seductive, refined but also very welcoming place to stay within incredibly easy reach of Perugia. Here you will find luxurious suites, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a scrupulous attention to detail and comfort. Perfect!

Perugia was once an important Etruscan settlement and has a well-preserved medieval centre rich with history and art. Join an underground tour where you can walk along ancient passageways and roads, or visit the Archaeological Museum to view excavated artefacts. The city is also famous for its beautiful fabrics, and the Museo-Laboratorio Giuditta Brozzetti offers workshop tours and traditional courses in hand weaving, embroidery and lace making using medieval designs. Local festivals draw the crowds, such as Umbria Jazz Festival in July, which is held throughout central Perugia, and the chocolate festival at the end of October.

Introducing

Anna Locori Casamassima

Anna is warm and energetic; she used to work for Ferragamo, which explains her evident flair for design and attention to detail. The property has been in her husband's family since the 1860s, and they restored it completely before opening it as a B&B in 2012.
