About Eremito

Discover moments of enchantment in the forest-covered hillsides of Umbria. Eremito is one of Italy’s best kept secrets – a unique wellness retreat hidden deep within the 400 acres of a UNESCO National Park. Here, the sound of nature offers a peaceful soundtrack for lazy afternoons out on the veranda and echoing through the trees during hikes to waterfalls, Chiani river, and the nearby village of Cantone. 

The 18 rooms have been inspired by ancient monasteries and built with modern-day craftmanship, providing a spiritual sanctuary for solo travellers. As you enter Eremito, the stone-walled, candlelit passageway opens into a remarkable lounge, with scattered cushions, rugs and a roaring fire. The luxury retreat is designed with sustainability at its core, running solely on solar energy and ingredients are harvest directly from the garden.
Wake up to the soft morning mist blanketing the hillside before meditation or yoga class hosted in Eremito’s charming studio. Set out on mindful walks in the woodlands, then soothe tired muscles in the heated jacuzzi and Turkish Hammam. Silent candlelit dinners are beautifully served in the heart of the house, before late night evenings sat out beside the firepit, under the star-spangled sky.

The Rooms

Each of the 18 rooms have been designed to reflect monks cells, with minimalist interiors to keep in tune with monasteries from a bygone era. Within these walls, comfortable double beds with handmade hemp sheets offer a great night sleep. The finer details are simple yet impressive, with marble and brass ensuite bathrooms and a charming desk space for reading and journalling in privacy.

The Experience

Disconnect to reconnect by switching off the phone and embracing a digital detox. Eremito encourages travellers to keep open mind whilst embarking on new experiences, such as silent dinners and philosophical discussions on religious scriptures. Idyllic for mental healing and spiritual growth, through the practice of yoga, meditation, walks in the woods and breaking bread with strangers, your transformative journey begins to unfold.

Restaurants & Dining

Eremito creates a feast for the senses with delicious four-course meals and wine served at lunch and dinner. The proof is in flavour, with ultra-fresh seasonal produce picked from the gardens each day. Lunches are often served out in the sunshine, overlooking the sweeping valley. At dinner, the sound of the gong calls you into the dining room, spectacularly flooded with candlelight and utterly silent.

Spa & Wellness

At Eremito, wellness takes the form of spiritual connection. Eremito’s spa is simple yet calming, with a charming stone steam room and large thermal jacuzzi to relax and rejuvenate. A selection of soothing massages are also available on request. 

The Location

Beautifully removed from the bustle of life, Eremito sits among the untamed wilderness of a nature reserve. The spiritual retreat is set halfway between Rome and Florence, with a 2-hour drive between either international airport.
