Exuding a monastic aesthetic of cell-like spaces, rooms at Eremito, in Umbria, enable one to fully retreat into a setting that is perfect for relaxation contemplation. Located in the center of Italy, Eremito hotel is surrounded by 3,000 hectares of protected natural reserve in Umbria. Considered the spiritual focal point of the country thanks to wonderful monasteries in the area, Umbria is a fitting choice for this Italian eco-resort.
Built from a mix of the latest bio and old materials from the region, the innovative sustainable structure invokes the cells of monasteries, so much so that rooms are called “Celluzze” in the spirit of those ancient monk quarters. The austere aesthetic aims to provide guests with an “old luxury”—plenty of quiet and space to reflect and rejuvenate, sans Wi-Fi, phone, and television. The kitchen serves up a vegetarian menu, also inspired by ancient monastic traditions, with ingredients sourced from local organic farms. The spa area features a heated pool dug from the rock and a stone steam room. It’s the perfect place to unwind while listening to Gregorian chants.
