IL Convento

IL Convento

Italy, Umbria ~ 10 Bedrooms ~ 15 Bathrooms ~ Sleeps 15 to 20

Nestled in the breathtaking hills of Umbria, the 60 acre I Capuccini estate stands as it has for four centuries, a testament to the Director’s understated style. I Capuccini celebrates the natural grandeur of the land while retaining a discreet elegance appropriate to its modest roots and his attention to detail is reflected in the restoration of his home.

Expect to be pampered. The ten luxurious suites have the very best of creature comforts and boasts an impressive array of contemporary amenities and state-of-the-art facilities. Take a warm bath in a deep tub and let the scents of lavender envelop you.  Completely private, each suite is named after a great Italian master in the arts. With sun drenched terraces, airy balconies, wood burning fireplaces, the glamorous suites each have their own unique style and décor.

Food and wine are important components in the fabric that makes up the rich Italian culture and at I Capuccini the tradition is respected. Reveling in a culinary philosophy honoring the social nature of dining, the estate has its own organic garden so that wondrous meals are prepared by your personal chef and are served throughout the grounds in a wide variety of unique spaces. Feast, the cuisine at I Capucciniis a culinary cavalcade.

You may choose from an elegant dining room for a formal banquet or for more relaxed entertaining there is outdoor dining on terraces with views of the lake. Ask the staff to set a table at your favorite spot in the villa’s glorious garden as you desire. Arrange a date with the chef for the kids to learn to make pizza. Dine by candlelight on a terrace. After dinner gather in any of the cozy living areas or retire to the lounge for billiards, pool or any number of indoor games. Rumpled and informal or dressed in starched shirts and black tie, as night falls at I Capuccini’s lush plants combined with the solid masonry make you feel like you are moving back through centuries.

Scenic local trails for walking or jogging abound but you may choose to stay close to home and swim laps in the splendid 65 ft. swimming pool. Or kick back under the grape arbor and discover a book you have never seen before, a memory is made…all good formulas for repairing, restoring, and rejuvenating.

After a day planned by your concierge to visit the quaint towns and hilltop villages, tour a museum, go shopping, dine out, attend an evening concert, retire to I Capuccini. Gather in the drawing room or the library for a recap with a glass of wine. I Capuccini’s sprawling cellar contains some of the finest wines that Italy has to offer as well as an eclectic assortment of boutique Italian labels with handpicked selections from both France and the United States.

The state-of-the-art training facility with treadmills, elliptical machines and strength training equipment will keep those six packs intact. Pilates and personal training sessions are available for private bookings. A dedicated full service Spa offers two private treatment rooms, sauna, steam room and traditional Hamm am. The wellness experience utilizes the healing qualities of olive oil, honey and grape seeds from an ancient Etruscan formula.

Celebrate that birthday, anniversary, special family occasion or simply spend time with family and friends at one of Italy’s most remarkable villas and create an indelible memory.  I Capuccinihas also welcomes a high level women’s advisory council and small corporate retreats, bringing out the best ideas in beautiful surroundings that inspires.
