Visits since Dec '09

Welcome to Sant'Orsola, a former Benedictine monastery set amidst fields of golden sunflowers with views across rolling Umbrian hills. The large villa and private apartments, set in extensive gardens with a large swimming pool have been carefully renovated to preserve many original features such as beautiful beamed ceilings and terracotta floors. During recent restoration work in our 13th century chapel we discovered a 15th century fresco painted by one of Raphael’s teachers. The chapel can be used for informal weddings and ceremonies. For a relaxing self-catering holiday in the villa or apartments, Sant'Orsola is the perfect base for daily visits to cultural and spiritual places of interest and for immersing yourself in the rich history of the surrounding medieval cities of Perugia, Assisi, Todi and Orvieto.
