An exquisite, small, personal inn of refined class, rustically elegant and yet extremely inviting set in a stunningly panoramic position which captures the very essence of magical Umbria with its views of gently rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, sprawling vineyards, olive groves and picturesque medieval hill towns.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day stay at Genius Loci. The location is superb for visiting nearby pristine hilltop walled cities, such as Assisi, Trevi, Spello and Gubbio. The fabulous pool was just what we needed after our touring each day. Breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the expansive valley, was plentiful and delicious. We had a large lovely room with a marvelous view, great air conditioning and a comfie bed. The whole inn felt like we were entering a bygone era, with its large collection of furnishings and objects collected over several lifetimes. We also enjoyed our intimate wine and olive oil tasting with Mary. We hope to be able to return one day, hopefully at harvest time.

Please note: this is a follow-up review of a former stay. We are so looking forward to returning to this incredible inn this summer! I like to find special places to build my trips around, and I feel like I hit the jackpot when I came across Genius Loci in my searches. Our stay was initially planned for 2 nights, and then we extended it until there was no more time in our itinerary. Upon returning home we encouraged all our friends to plan a trip to this lovely inn right in the heart of Umbria, and now we are returning this summer. Genius Loci is a fabulous base for all of Umbria. From the terrace one can look across vineyard- covered slopes to the cities of Spello and Monte Falco. The lights of Assisi can be seen in the distance, and Spoleto is a mere 30 minutes away. But one doesn't need to spend the days site-seeing if what is really called for is rest and relaxtion. Sitting on the terrace, perhaps enjoying a cappucino or a glass of wine, one can think about the multitude of dining options nearby, or consider a dip in the refreshing pool. Beautiful rooms in a gorgeous setting are nothing if the hosts are not warm and welcoming. The Tacconis are superb hosts from the very first contact on. When we visited they were also hosting return guests - one of whom had been ill. Mary gave them advice while they were on the road, and made arrangements for them to meet with her personal physician upon their arrival. Another day they organized a car caravan for a luncheon reservation at a favorite, out-of-the-way spot. Whatever your party feels like doing during your stay at Genius Loci, your hosts are there to smooth the way. I find myself envying the guests we met who are able to return to this bit of paradise every year!

We have visited Genius Loci 8 times in the past 7 years. The moment you step out of the car there is an air of peace and tranquillity. The panoramic views are stunning with the quiet punctuated by the far off sound of a tractor tending the fields and vines. We have visited summer and autumn and both seasons have so much to offer from the sunflower yellow in summer to the autumnal crimson and gold colours in autumn. I would describe Genius Loci as food for the mind, body and soul. The Inn provides comfort and fabulous accommodation and breakfast of local food that will satisfy any appetite. Mary and Michael are generous hosts and they have a wealth of knowledge which they are happy to share with recommendations for places to visit, take meals and sample wine and local fare. They will arrange activities such as wine tasting in some of the best vineyards in Umbria. We are looking forward to our next visit to the in in 2022 as there is still so much for us to see, do and experience.

If you are looking for an oasis of calm, beauty, luxury and a genuine break from a hectic life, I highly recommend the Genius Loci Country Inn. After visiting here many times, and staying in various rooms – each unique and special – I can’t say enough good things about the charm, elegance and utter comfort of Genius Loci. The entire property is always impeccably clean, with a remarkable attention to detail, such as very comfortable beds, high-end linens, ample hot water and plush towels, and delicious breakfasts served on gorgeous Italian dishes. The pool is a joy on a hot summer day, with great views over the vineyards and olive groves of Genius Loci, and the fireplace in the reading room/lounge area of the Inn offers a cozy retreat on cooler days. There are several spots outdoors where you can sit with a glass of wine, produced from the Genius Loci vineyards, to watch the sun set behind the beautiful, ancient Umbria hills. Mary, Maurizio and Michael Tacconi, the Italian-American family which owns and operates the Inn, truly care about their guests and their comfort, and offer many thoughtful suggestions for hill towns and unique places to visit, restaurants to try, local festivals to experience....something for every taste (and most only a short drive from the Inn). Their knowledge and deep love of their region was so persuasive that it convinced me, after many visits, to move to Italy!

The stunning view from the Inn will draw you in from your initial arrival. The Inn is a beautifully built structure that gives honor to its history. The rooms are spacious and elegantly furnished and comfortable. Breakfast is provided each day and served with local meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, etc with coffee/espresso or tea selections as well as juices. Genius Loci is run by the Tacconi family; Michael and Mary do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. If you are needing suggestions for activities, they provide information about what is available in the area, local festivals and other activities of interest. They also can make recommendations for dinners at the many wonderful restaurants in the area. There are many beautiful towns to visit in the area; Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello, Assisi, Todi, Norcia, etc. I fell in love with Genius Loci the first time I visited the area and have made numerous return stays. Genius Loci will always be one of my favorite places to stay in all of Italy.

It’s been more than two years since we have been able to visit Genius Loci and the wonderful hospitality of Mary, Maurizo and Michael. The rooms are spacious, all with a great view. We can testify from several visits that there are spectacular summer and late fall scenes of the vineyards and countryside as one has breakfast and lounge around the pool. The location is central to many hillside towns and local restaurants. Mary arranges many side trips to olive, garlic and wine festivals. A great destination.

We loved the land, the buildings, the food, and above all, the wonderful family that made us feel comfortable, cared for, and inspired. We had a wine tasting, and a wonderful cooking class. The inn is in easy reach of perfectly wonderful places to visit, hike, and wander. We plan to go back with our whole, very large family as soon as covid exits.

Although our stay at Genius Loci was not a very recent one (due to travel restrictions), no matter when or where we travel in Italy, it always includes a stay at this wonderful Inn. Breathtaking views, comfortable rooms, extraordinary hosts and so much to do and see nearby. Mary is an expert on local art and architecture, sharing information about sights and day trips that provided us with the quintessential Umbrian experience. Delicious food and wine experiences have enhanced our love of this region. We look forward to returning.
