This gorgeous luxury hotel lies 25 minutes outside Perugia, up in the hills. There are nightly classical music concerts in the villa's frescoed chapel, a huge range of spa treatments in a converted limonaia, and Michelin-worthy dinners in a jacket-and-tie restaurant led by local chef Nicola Fanfano. The main house is impeccably furnished in period chairs and paintings with ancient terra-cotta floors, while the surrounding farm buildings where most of the guests stay are fitted with ultramodern furnishings. The hotel offers walking tours of the historic property and of the surrounding towns, as well as cycling tours and cooking classes. On rainy days you can spend time in the reading room on the top floor of the main house, which has books, games for the children, and sweeping views of the valley all the way to Lake Trasimeno.
