Hidden in the beautiful Umbrian hills near Gubbio, a little Medieval hamlet lay forgotten and neglected, until 2001, when it was brought back to life and transformed into a holiday paradise: Borgo di Carpiano.
Borgo di Carpiano dates back to the 10th century, when the castle was built. The church was added some 7 centuries later. The cluster of buildings now make up a sensitively restored complex which offers unique accommodation, surrounded by olive trees and woods, tucked away in the countryside, yet within easy reach of the wonderful sights of Umbria.
Guest accommodation has been created within three ancient stone-faced buildings. The charming bedrooms, with their beamed ceilings have all the romance of the traditional Italian style, simplified, and with modern conveniences - including air conditioning, independently controlled heating, flat screened televisions. Some rooms have a fireplace, others a terrace or private garden.
Borgo di Carpiano's refurbished church, enhanced with lovely frescoes, has become a serene lounge and library. Here guests can read, relax, and enjoy the company of others. The church is a unique venue for functions, concerts, exhibitions and small meetings.
The perfect place to unwind and relax, Borgo di Carpiano is the ultimate rural retreat. Guests linger by the beautiful infinity pool, sunbathe on the terraces or in the solarium, surrounded by stunning views. On request, pampering therapeutic treatments and soothing massages are available. The more active will find the pool large enough for a good swim or can wander off into the grounds, explore the estate and follow trails into the hills. And, all the wonders of this part of Umbria - Gubbio, Perugia,Assisi, Spoleto...are all close by.
The cuisine at Borgo di Carpiano is delicious. A sumptuous spread, including home-made bread, biscuits and cakes awaits guests each morning. Crops harvested from the Borgo's organic garden and from the estate, together with other locally grown and made produce are used in the traditional kitchen, combining to present a very special dining experience. Regular tastings of regional wine, olive oil and cheeses are arranged.
