The Location

It is hard to convey how beautiful the setting of this gay friendly hotel is. On the top of an Umbrian hill, its views sweep down across the valley and away towards Perugia.  Lie beside the infinity pool and soak that view up as you sample the local wines – you’re in the heart of Italy’s wineland after all.

There are several small hillside towns to visit nearby, including a half an hour walk through the fields to picturesque Collelungo and there are plenty of larger towns and cities to explore within easy reach.  The Umbrian capital Perugia is a beautiful day out, with its Medieval passageways and cobbled laneways.  Todi is only 20 minutes and Assisi,Spoleto Orvieto and Montefalco are all less than an hour away.
