Set among 12,000 olive trees, Borgo della Marmotta is a 17th-century hamlet and boutique hotel in Umbria. Under the same ownership as Villa della Genga, Borgo della Marmotta has recently been restored to its original condition.
The old square, stables, mill and granary have been given a whole new lease of life as an authentic agriturismo farm experience in Italy. The agriturismo has 11 rooms and 7 apartments, as well as stunning views of the Spoleto valley.
Major tourist destinations such as the ancient towns and villages of Trevi, Assisi and Perugia are all nearby. In June, Spoleto holds a music and opera festival, and in autumn, truffle hunting is very popular.
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 (the pool is open from May - October). Yoga and pilates classes can also be arranged on request.
The hotel can also organise cookery classes for groups of up to 20, along with horse riding, cycling and treks. If you fancy a cosy night in, guests are welcome to 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. In return, receive a regular supply of delicious olive oil. In order to decide which tree to adopt, take a tour of the family’s olive oil factory, and learn more about the production process.
Breakfast is a delicious, mostly homemade feast of sweet croissants and jams, cold cuts and cheeses. In true agriturismo fashion, enjoy your meal in the old pen, which has stone walls overlooking the garden.
No dinner is served here but the friendly owners are more than happy to recommend restaurants nearby.

Perugia Airport is a 35 minute drive by car (48km).
Although it is an agriturismo farm experience in Italy, Borgo della Marmotta is really a country boutique hotel with 18 rooms including 7 suites, all of which blend modern design details with original architecture. Some rooms have canopy four-poster beds, while others come with pastel linens that reflect the colour of the curtains and armchairs. 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).
