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.
