What we like about this property

This striking property, perched on a hill overlooking the Tiber Valley in Umbria, is part hotel and part boutique home. A medieval convent, given a masterful makeover, it has been converted into a collection of apartments, each with its own unique character.

Description

An old deck of tarot cards, unearthed during the conversion of this medieval convent, has given names to each of its seven apartments.

The property retains much of its original simplicity and character – old stone walls, wooden beams, striking views of the Tiber Valley… But each individual apartment has its own feel. Choose 10 Coins with its blushing reds for a romantic getaway or 9 Coins, with its beautiful stone terrace, for a family escape. Or rent the whole property for a wedding.

We love the floors that were created by piecing together bricks reclaimed during the renovation, the partially-exposed stonework of the walls, and the recessed windowsills that are perfect for nestling in.

Furnishings are simple – comfy sofas, monastic wooden tables and chairs, and wrought-iron bed frames. Decor is bright and cheery – with elegant folk art, sunburst mirrors, and hearts of all kinds in every apartment.

Each apartment has at least one bathroom and a simple kitchen/kitchenette with quirky mismatched and multicolored splashback tiling. 

The garden has a large communal swimming pool, and there are two spaces (Sun and Knight) for living and events.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Each of the apartments has autonomous heating, a fireplace and chimney, a safe, a hairdryer, and orthopedic mattresses. Linen is provided in the kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchens have fridge-freezers, ovens/microwaves, electric plates, coffeemakers, toasters and kettles. The apartments do not have television sets, as a deliberate choice.

AROUND

The property is located in the beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Tiber Valley, and is easily reached by car on a paved road. The nearest town is Umbertide (12km away) and other Umbrian towns such as Lake Trasimeno, Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio are just a few minutes drive away. It is also a few miles from the border with Tuscany. A small grocery store is a 5-minute drive, restaurants 10-20 minutes away, and a town with supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, railway station 12 minutes drive away. For golf enthusiasts, the Antognolla Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent-Jones, is just five minutes away by car. Umbria is a culinary dream. Local cuisine includes Upper Tiber Valley truffles and mushrooms, freshwater fish such as eel, perch and tench from Lake Trasimeno, and the mountain cheeses, meats and black truffles of Valnerina. Don’t miss the extra virgin olive oil, and the famous wines: Sagrantino, Rosso di Montefalco, and Nobile di Montepulciano.

    A lovely hideaway surrounded by a great landscape in the middle of nowhere. If you need highspeed internet, 5***** room service and 24/7 party: please stay away as far as possible. We will return asap!

    We are outside the main tourist routes, in the middle of the woods of Western Umbria, very close to everything but far from the world! Arriving at the Antico Convento is already a pleasant adventure alone along small roads (asphalted) in the middle of the woods. The landscape is relaxing with views of high hills and woods. A swimming pool to be enjoyed for moments of leisure. The apartments show everyone almost maniacal care in the small details.

    Thanks to Antonella for all the valuable advice and to Roberto and Francesca, the owners, for the familiarity with which we were welcomed and the patience shown towards our children.

    PS. Know that you are living a dream …….. not only yours, but above all that of Roberto and Francesca!

    The Old Abbey is a wonderful paradise in Umbria. Antonietta is very friendly and she is willing to help you with whatever you want to do. The rooms are clean and cosy and the pool is necessary for the hot Umbrian summer days. The Old Abbey is at the center of Umbrie for us is was ok to travel 30 minuten to 1 hour to reach the most beautiful cities. I would really recommend this beautiful place to my friends.

    Peace, tranquility, friendliness…
    A piece of paradise in Umbria! A regenerating and refined place, in the heart of the wild hills. The hospitality of Roberto and Francesca, the kindness of Antonietta, the joy of the little Stella are incomparable. You do not feel in a rented apartment to spend the holidays, but in the house of friends, nice but discreet. All cared for in every detail, neat, clean, nothing left to chance.

    This is a lovely vacation rental situated in a bucolic setting. It’s simply, but nicely furnished and had all the basic amenities. Antonietta was wonderful and helped us with recommendations and reservations. We felt very well taken care of. The only negative comment I have is that the mattress was very hard, but that may be a matter of taste.

    Beautiful view, bed, room and staff…

    Location is a little way out of the way … but totally worth it! Beautiful little towns are in an hour away in every direction!

    Beautiful setting and room … comfy bed too! We were upgraded to a beautiful two story one bedroom apartment!

    Susan, Canada

  • Very peaceful, spacious and well equipped apartment…

    Excellent rural location. Absolute peace and quiet, in small and charming gardens. Good views of the surrounding hills. Breakfast (optional) is a treat with plenty of choice and volume. Antonietta is extremely helpful and accommodating with guests.
