The Experience

Climb up through scrubby oak woodland and the ancient convent appears above you on the ridge – a lovely pile of elegant stone buildings around a central courtyard with views in all directions. Dating from the 12th century, the building was rescued from a dilapidated state by a previous owner with an eye for design.

The apartments wouldn’t look out of place in an interiors magazine. A classy minimalism of stark walls and old brick floors combines with luxurious detail: quality linens on deep mattresses, light muslin at windows, fresh flowers and dark wood antiques. It feels pleasantly exclusive here but in no way pretentious – just relaxingly country-chic.

A large terrace with weathered terracotta pots, a bank of lavender and a sweep of gravel steps leads to the pool area for some basking. Courteous and smiling Antonietta will show you around and if you need a bit of urban action, Umbertide, Perugia and Assisi are not far.

Reviews

An ancient and beautiful place to stay with far-reaching views over seemingly endless folding hills. If you tire of lazing by the pool, Antonietta will arrange cookery classes, wine tastings and suggest picturesque hill-top towns to discover nearby. Ideal location for large gatherings of friends/family to celebrate special events too

Fantastic and really authentic place to stay.

Signe, Næstved

The weekend which I spent at the Convento with a large group of friends was idyllic, helped by perfect weather. The apartments are full of individual character but extremely comfortable and have everything you need. The terrace and grounds are spacious and inviting and the view is stunning. Antonietta is an ideal host and arranged wonderful meals for us by local caterers. There is plenty to see within easy reach but you do need a car.

This is one of those rare places that we would put on our list of "places to go back to"! Totally relaxing, totally peaceful, beautiful property in a beautiful part of Italy. We had lots planned but did very little .. there was no need to leave this gorgeous property. Nothing was too much trouble for Antoinetta and we got to meet the owners too and the gorgeous Stella! Really really happy to post a big Thumbs Up about this place. Cant be beaten.

Julie, London

A magical place to stay. Beautiful accommodation in stunning surroundings. Authentic Italian cookery lessons, fascinating visit to a bee keeper and alpaca farm, a tasty local breakfast every morning and a 'Dinner Under the Stars,' all arranged by the wonderful Antonietta, who is a wealth of information and is at the convent every day to offer friendly help and advice on all matters including places to eat and visit. Our apartment was clean, comfortable and spacious with amazing views. And our children loved the swimming pool. Friendly accommodating owners and beautiful places nearby.

Rachel

Wonderful place! The area felt very unspoilt and driving up to the convent we couldn't believe our luck- hay bales in fields on either side of the road, wild flowers and butterflies. The old convent was beautiful- surrounded by lavender and rosemary, with a large terrace with tables to eat on and a gorgeous pool with views over the Umbrian hills. The apartment was clean and prettily decorated and Antonietta could not have been more helpful and kind. We made easy daytrips to Assisi, Lake Trasimeno Gubbio but it was hard to tear ourselves away from the peace of the place. Just magic.

Location

The neighbourhood

Perched high in the Umbrian hills, it's extremely calm and peaceful at this chic, 12th-century convent. Hire bikes or walk (1.5 hours) straight from the door to an ancient Etruscan tomb (Faggetto) in glorious beech woods, take a tour of the ancient 10th-century Castello di Sorbello (15kms), book cookery courses, go wine tasting, visit an artisan cheese maker, stroke Alpacas at a nearby farm.

Local points of interest from Antonietta .

  • Cooking Classes and Wine Tasting available on request
  • If you like mysteries and legends about Templars, Perugia will surprise you for its unique beauty: the Church of Sant'Angelo, a paleo-Christian temple evokes legends and events connected to the knights Templar, and it’s only a few km from Antico Convento.
  • Relais l’Antico Convento is best accessed through the Perugia International Airport, 30 kms away, with direct flights to many European destinations. Alternatively, the airports of Rome, Florence and Pisa are only a couple of hours drive away.
  • Don’t miss the spectacle of nature in Castelluccio di Norcia: Between the end of May and the beginning of July the plains become a triumph of multi-coloured shades thanks to the phenomenon known as "Fioritura" , i.e the flowering.
  • Relais l’Antico Convento is an unique place for an independent family or couple’s holiday. It is also ideal for special events suchas weddings, family reunions, birthday parties, hen dos, stag parties, the list is endless.
  • Perugina Chocolate Factory:perfect location for exciting experiences both for adults and the little ones. A finger-licking journey that starts from the Historic Museum and ends with a delicious tasting of delicacies.Only a few minutes from the Convento.
