About La Taverna al Monte
La Taverna al Monte is a unique Umbrian villa where four spacious floors circle a showstopping staircase. The original stone floors and delicate ironwork of this elegant centrepiece epitomise the villa's style and heritage. Indeed, La Taverna al Monte's Umbrian history is as long as its spectacular terrace and garden. Once a series of towers, the building has served time as a hotel, convent and children's school. It is today a palace of pleasure and a retreat for relaxing.
The restoration has retained much of this ancient building's 16th-century flair. This is combined with all the amenities required by discerning travellers. Gorgeous views grace every window and are accented by high lofty beamed ceilings. Thick stone walls enclose inviting designer furniture. A Juliet balcony overlooks the bamboo-shaded terrace. And luxurious en suite bathrooms inside complement the large, green marble pool outside.
Five bedrooms offer maximum privacy and comfort, while the grand library's stone fireplace adds a hint of old-world charm. Set amid the Umbrian hills you'll feel perfectly alone among the rolling hills. Yet when you slip out the back door there's a sleepy village waiting with a warm welcome, quiet coffee or delicious meal.
At the very cusp of Tuscany and Umbria, La Taverna al Monte places the splendours of central Italy at your doorstep.
