Reviewed 30 June 2014

Location is perfectly romantic. Beautifull building with many rooms for relaxation, reading, watching tv. Cool corridors inside the abbey. The aerea is completely silent, just birds singing. The wide balcony-like grass terrace is stunning, with a row of deckchairs the valley and
Most cheerfull and helpfull people.

Room Tip: We stayed 8 nights and had the best possible room: the suite di faroaldo. Large room, kingsize bed...

For all of you out there seeking this "off the beaten path" experience - this is it!!

This is a restored Abbey in a drop-dead gorgeous area of Southern Umbria; manicured grounds with wrought iron tables and chairs, and lots of lounge chairs to just sit and stare at the canyons surrounding the Abbazia and the abandoned castle across the way. If one is lucky enough to experience rain or a real foggy morning, one will be handsomely rewarded with a breathtaking view of that abandoned castle enveloped in deep fog. Oh, just pinch me!!

We reserved the mini suite, which is very lovely and spacious, furnished with beautiful antiques, including a round dining table and chairs, sitting area, flat screen TV (who wants to watch TV when the view our those windows takes one's breath away!!), king size bed, and a well equipped bathroom. And those two windows overlooking the castle.

Breakfast is served in the cloisters: out on the patio and also indoors. There is a good selection of hot and cold breakfast foods, including a variety of egg options, breakfast meats and cheeses, cereal, fresh fruit, much too much baked goods, fruit juices, and cappuccini or any other hot beverage.

There is also bar service and gracious staff members will serve wine and wonderful bites of local cheeses on that fantastic lawn from which we did not want to move.

The Abbazia is conveniently located for exploring Southern Umbria, including Spoletto, Tarni, Trevi, etc., but who would want to leave?? We ended spending the two days lounging around the Abbey, trying to snap just the perfect photo to capture its goodness.

Do not neglect visiting the Church on the premises. It houses beautiful frescos!

There is also a restaurant on the premises but under a separate ownership. Very gracious Carla will take excellent care of you. Ask what is good. She is fluent in English.

Four of us stayed here as part of a walking tour so our initial approach was on foot from the village below, passing through the most delightful scenery. The road curves and suddenly one sees the abbey, surrounded by green hills. Once past the entrance (incorporating reception and a bar), there is a huge expanse of lawn before passing through another gateway into the old monastery. Drinks are served on the lawn which is a delightful place to relax and take in the surroundings.
Our rooms were very good. My showerroom was very small but perfectly adequate for a 2 night stay. The bedroom was spacious and the beds comfortable.
Breakfast was excellent, served in a lovely vaulted room, with tables outside. Given the location, it is probably better to have dinner in the independently-run restaurant adjacent to the monastery, which serves very good food served with great friendliness. Otherwise, due to the location, it would be necessary to walk down to the village or drive further afield.
All staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
An abiding memory will be the wonderful birdsong signalling the approach of dawn - quite magical.
It was very hard to leave and I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment for travellers looking for peace and quiet in a stunning setting.

This hotel will take some beating. We stayed for two nights, but would have liked to stay longer. It was such a beautiful setting, and the old Abbey buildings had been utilised very skilfully, to make a very comfortable hotel. The staff seemed genuinely pleased to welcome us, serving drinks on the large lawn overlooking the breathtaking view of the wooded hillside on the opposite side of the valley.
We had a scrumptious breakfast in the cloisters, and a splendid dinner each evening in the adjoining restaurant.
It was a wonderful place to stay, and we thought it would make a perfect wedding venue!

Room Tip: Just go there!

Wow! What a truly amazing place. From the moment it comes into view till the moment you leave, the Abbey will take your breath away. Beauty and seclusion, peace, calm and tranquility are in abundance. The staff are always smiling and can't do enough for you. Beside the Abbey is an independent restaurant, the only place nearby to eat but the food is amazing and once again the staff are great. Double thumbs up from me.
