Eremito has just opened its doors, after 4 years of renovation. It’s an historic mansion located in Umbria, the birthplace of spirituality in Italy, land of beautiful monasteries, where nature, peace and quiet have always favored the contact with the deepest and most essential aspects of the existence.
Bordering Tuscany, Eremito is easy to be reached: located 100 miles from the airport of Rome Fiumicino, it is nestled in an uncontaminated valley, shaped by the river Chiani , in the heart of the Natural Reserve of Elmo, made of broom, juniper, arbutus and oak trees.
Built with the most advanced eco friendly building techniques, this Hermitage made of stone is warm in winter and cool in summer. An original wooden door gives access to the structure. A tunnel with cave leads into a large living room with vaulted ceiling and large fireplace.
There’s a Refectory for the meals. In the upper floor 14 cells have been transformed into small rooms with all amenities, with “French size” bed, hand-sewn hemp sheets, stone desk, and little bathroom with shower. This Eco Luxury Historic Residence features a relax area with a small pool of warm water, with Jacuzzi, lighted, carved into the rock, and two rooms used as turkish bath. Outside, a large panoramic terrace overlooks the valley.
Adjacent, a small garden hosts aromatic herbs; alongside there’s a pergola under which a chestnut table hosts lunches and dinners in the summer. A picturesque waterfall fountain dedicated to the Madonna of the Rose adorns the back of the Hermitage planted with fragrant white roses. Eremito is also a Farmhouse: the food is vegetarian, and the recipes are inspired by the monastic culinary tradition.
The ingredients are organic and come from the garden, the orchard and the vineyard of the estate. Bread, pasta, cookies and desserts are homemade. In the little tower of this Spiritual Farmhouse there are also a small chapel and terrace with a spectacular view of the valley below: special places that encourage contemplation and meditation.
Eremito offers a full digital detox break to people attracted by the charm of an holiday in a hermitage: the luxury of silence and peace, the pleasure of little simple things, the ones that make us feel truly good.
It is the perfect location for those that need to get away from everything and everyone, and experience a few days of a spiritual vacation in peace.
