The Relais Casamassima, a beautiful finely restored period residence, is located just 5 kilometers from Perugia, in a refined but pleasantly informal setting in the heart of the Umbrian hills.
Built in the Seventeenth Century, the house was renovated over the following centuries until, in 1865, it was purchased by the family of the current owners, who carried out further renovations in the 1970s. The project to allocate part of the residence to agritourism was realized in 2011; the following year the Relais Casamassima began its activity.
The rooms of the relais are all designed in detail with sober elegance, and the skillful play of colors makes each corner of the unique structure worthy of a small Hotel de Charme, with three spacious Suites, a Junior Suite and a refined Deluxe Room, all elegantly furnished.
Breakfast is served outdoors in good weather or in a bright room, which was once used as a greenhouse. The old stable is now a library full of books on Perugia and Umbria, available to guests who want to discover and deepen their knowledge of this area.
The garden produces fruit and vegetables for all seasons, which can be tasted at breakfast or during a meal in a structure on request. Even the eggs come from native hens and, walking through the land of the property, it is possible to meet the sheeps of the farm with grazing lambs.
From the park which surrounds the entire property and from the small private swimming pool the view sweeps pleasantly between the olive groves and vineyards of the Farm, which has always been part of the agritourism activity.
Added value is the attentive and cordial hospitality of the owners, lovers of nature but also of art and music, whose reception has the effect of a relaxing “feeling at home”.
The Relais Casamassima is also a location for the celebration of civil weddings on the spot; it can host receptions, birthday parties, dinners or lunches by reservation, tastings of olive oil, wine and typical products, as well as regional cooking courses.
Escape from everyday life in a place full of charm!
