Slow Life Umbria


Slow Life Umbria is a small boutique hotel in Castel Rigone, created so that you can enjoy the finer things in life in peace & tranquillity. This 17th-century stone Chic Retreat has been expertly restored by architects Pietro Abbruzzesse and Dario Sasso to great accolade at the Triennale of Milan exhibition in 2006. Right in the heart of the rolling Umbrian countryside, guests of this gorgeous  Chic Retreat can enjoy walks in the forests and through the olive groves and the proximity to Perugia, just 10-minutes drive away. Dine on sumptuous regional cuisine in the restaurant, relax by the pool, explore the nearby villages and enjoy the slow life in Umbria.


There are some great hiking and walking trails starting at Slow Life Umbria so you can take in the beautiful surroundings of Umbria, a landscape of olive groves, vineyards and fertile rolling hills. You can also explore the region by horseback or head down to the nearby Trasimino lake for a day of windsurfing and sailing. Watersports can also be enjoyed at the Valnerina in the heart of the Mount Sibillini National Park, an hour’s drive away. Here you can glide down the Black River on a raft or try kayaking and canoeing. Golf enthusiasts needn’t travel far, with a great course 20 minutes from Slow Life Umbria. For art lovers, there is plenty to explore in the churches and museums of the nearby villages and cities, including some wonderful Renaissance works in the Basilica of Assisi and the Cathedral of Orvieto, and Perugia is just a short drive away. However, an equally wonderful day can be spent by the outdoor pool admiring the views.


The gorgeous Mediterranean set menu is made from fresh ingredients sourced from the best of Umbrian and Tuscan organic farms nearby. The menu changes every day with a great range of regional dishes. Breakfast is served in the restaurant or outside on the terrace, with homemade traditional cakes and breads, organic jam, honey, fruit, juices, yogurt and cereals on the menu.

Slow Life Umbria was not affected by the recent tragic events that have taken place in Italy and we remain fully functional and open for existing and new reservations. We wish to extend heartfelt thoughts to all those affected during these times.
