Borgo della Marmotta is a truly special 17th-century hamlet and boutique hotel in Umbria set among 12,000 olive trees with views of the Spoleto valley. Under the same ownership as Villa della Genga, Borgo della Marmotta has been recently restored and returned to its original state. Today, the old square, stables, mill and granary have been given a whole new lease of life as a 20 room authentic agriturismo farm experience in Italy.
Major tourist destinations such as the ancient towns and villages of Trevi, Assisi and Perugia are all nearby. For those wanting to keep fit, there is a gym, a sauna (available on reservation) and a swimming pool with a view of the fields and wooden sunloungers (the pool is open from May - October). Yoga and pilates classes can also be arranged on request. Guests can borrow books and DVDs from the library. Borgo della Marmotta runs an olive tree adoption scheme where, for a fee, you can take a tree under your wing and in return receive a regular supply of olive oil. Take a tour of the family’s olive oil factory and decide which tree to adopt. The hotel can also organise cookery classes for groups of up to 20, along with horse riding, cycling and treks. In June Spoleto holds a music and opera festival; in autumn, join in one of the main activities in the area - truffle hunting.
Breakfast is a delicious, mostly homemade feast of sweet croissants and jams, cold cuts and cheeses laid out in the old pen, with stone walls overlooking the garden. No dinner is served here but the owners can recommend restaurants nearby.
Although an agriturismo farm experience in Italy, Borgo della Marmotta is really a country boutique hotel with 20 rooms including 6 suites, all of which blend modern design details with original architecture. Some rooms have canopy four-poster beds; others come with pastel linens that reflect the colour of the curtains and armchairs and careful attention to detail can be found in everything from the lighting to the natural materials. Choose between classic and superior rooms or apartments, which each have a living room and kitchenette, and can sleep up to 4 people (several of the apartments can also be joined together if you are a larger group).
