On a mountain just East of the city of Perugia, this is a small (18 room) hotel with components from several centuries incorporated into one harmonious whole. Our "deluxe" room overlooked the valley below and the skyline of Perugia. Simple wooden chairs and a desk, a cabinet containing a safe and minibar, an armoire, and a bed with bedside tables constitute the furnishings. The bathroom is small, but modern. There are two restaurants--one with a Michelin star (Il Postale), but only five tables, one in the kitchen, so book ahead. We sat at the table in the kitchen and had one of the two tasting menus. At 85 Euros each plus wine, this was one of our most memorable meals ever and well worth the cost. The second restaurant has a terrace overlooking the valley. Even with GPS, the roads and Italian drivers are a challenge I was unwilling to face at night, so we had all of our dinners at the hotel during our four night stay. An excellent buffet breakfast is included in the room rate. Smoking is permitted, one of the few drawbacks of modern Italian culture. Otherwise, this is as close to a perfect romantic getaway as I can imagine.
