“Wonderful Holiday!”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

We have had a wonderful holiday in Il Cantico della Natura. It's a beautiful place with very kind people and great hospitality. We stayed here with our three daughters who also had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the beautiful premises, the view, the delicious food and the pool. It's not only a nice place to stay, but also a perfect place to visit the old towns in the neighborhood, like Perugia, Assisi, Gubio, Todi, Siena and Florence, but also the Lago Trasimeno. Could certainly recommend this place!

This is one of the most romantic hotels we've ever visited.Perfect location far away from busy roads and heavy traffic. Wonderful view on the lake Trasimeno and its surroundings. Good food, friendly staff and well equipped rooms. Perfect starting point for excursions to Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Cortona and many nice places around the lake. Superb swimming pool to relax afterwards.

Recommended.

Well I found an amazing place immersed in the Tuscan hills near to Perugia and Lake Trasimeno. Not easy to find as the satnav had no idea but fairly well signposted as long as you arrive in the daylight. Silent, totally immersed in lovely countryside, respect for nature and animals, classy with great food and the rooms are all different and really well equipped. The pool overlooks the lake with a glorious view and the service is really excellent. And the prices are also more than reasonable. Recommended.

Room Tip: Wow they are all special, I saw 3 of them.

My husband and I planned a trip from France to Italy in May and Il Cantico della Natura was one stop along the way. We knew the countryside would be beautiful and were looking forward to it but when we arrived we were utterly blown away. This is one of those places, those special places that you don't get to see all the time. The views are hard to describe. Spectacularly romantic and beautiful, we relaxed and sipped wine by the pool, watched the sunset over the Umbrian hills and Lake Trasimeno, took a late morning hike up the mountain, and enjoyed lakeside pasta and seafood on a day trip from the hotel. But the kicker was the dinner they offer at the restaurant. We had no idea it was going to be the authentic, cultural, warm, romantic and mouthwatering experience it was. You must have dinner when you stay there. We were the only Americans while we were there, they seem to mostly get European guests. It is a thoroughly Italian experience and one I would recommend to everyone. Be advised that they are an eco-hotel, so lighting is low, there is practically no paper or plastic used anywhere, and they source most of their food from out their back door. The grounds are incredible, surrounded by olive trees and so many flowers - the air is literally perfumed! Rooms are rustic, tasteful and comfortable. Staff is super friendly and accommodating - Maurizio was awesome! One note to make - be sure to have very solid directions. We used Google Maps on our iPhone and it got us helplessly lost. We had to rely on the aide of a very nice local Italian man to get us there. But believe me, once you do - it is just so spectacular!

Reviewed 30 January 2012

We came here in January for my birthday. First, I have to say the place is stunning. The views are amazing. The conversion of the farmhouse and out-buildings are ecological and sympathetic with the surroundings. The gardens are delightful. There are numerous footpaths to discover. There plenty of secluded places to relax and enjoy the peace of the countryside in the summer.

However, this place is geared really only for the summer. It is a pity, as just a few simple changes could have made this place a winter utopia. There is a huge fireplace in the dining room which wasn't lit - and obviously was not going to be, as it was full of dried flowers and antiques. With the outside temperature at night hovering around freezing, it would have been perfect to have a welcoming, warming fire. As it was, I sat by it and had a draught from the chimney down my neck!

The food was generally very good, and the breakfast was superb. But, it was not quite hitting the spot. The first night we had spezzationo di capriolo (venison stew), which was excellent, but it was served with SALAD! First, stew really does not go with salad and seeing as the food is all supposed to be seasonal....well you get my point! It is also a pity that there is no choice for the second dish. My partner doesn't eat pork (which was the second night's main dish) and so had to have leftover venison stew from the night before.

Our room, Julius was compact, but lovely. However, the air conditioner is directly over the wardrobe, which absorbs most of the heat. We overcame this by opening the doors to let the heat out. All that needs to be done is move the wardrobe a foot sideways and this wouldn't be a problem. Also, a curtain over the room door would have also helped keep the warmth in, as it leads directly outside and there is a large, draughty gap in the beautiful antique door.

As it was winter and the nights long, it would have been nice to either have a couple of comfy chairs in the room to sit in or better still a bar area where you could read and chill in the evening before dinner.

As another reviewer mentioned, the bath/shower is deeply set into the floor, and really is quite difficult to get in and out of. If you have bad knees or mobility issues, I would check first if the room has one these.

The bed was very comfortable and we slept like logs. However, it was very low - not much higher than a futon. Again, if you have bad knees etc. I would check first.

There are candles, josh sticks and oil burners provided in the rooms, which is a lovely touch, except there were no matches provided! When I asked for some, there weren't any to be found!!!

My final niggle, is this is marketed as a romantic place for couples. However, you can hear EVERYTHING your immediate neighbours are doing and saying on all sides!!!

All this aside, this really is a wonderful place and we will go back, but in the spring or summer. The staff were very courteous and friendly. The resident dogs are gorgeous and friendly. I definitely came away relaxed and happy. So long as you are aware of the limitations, I would recommend this place for a wonderful, relaxing weekend away.

Incredible views from pool area. Buildings beautiful and our room was comfortable, clean and beautiful. Access in and out best by car but we also used taxi (must prebook). Best breakfast of our trip and staff excellent, friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Dinners were excellent. Wireless service onsite.

Room Tip: View of poolside would be best.

Stay during the week, weekend proved to be too busy...........with a wedding and huge family group gathering! September is a wonderful time to be here. the overly hot summer had taken a toll on the usual green appearance! But the view from the hill top night and day is breath taking. The rooms are name by the months and located in a couple of buildings. Some are under the owners residence, a building just next and one up the hill. Each suite that we looked into were completely different in size and configuration.Each fully decorated in all antiques. The staff were all amazing , friendly and helpful. Our cooking class with Rosa was fantastic. The Breakfast was over the top !!!!.........dinners of a small select menu were great............eating on the out door patio at night was charming! The pool is nicely situated on the hill top looking out over the lakeside town below. Not easy to find if you are by car, without a car hard to get to other hill side towns, as the town right below had nothing to offer. If you are missing your pets the resident two dogs will charm themselves into your heart. This is a place for couples.............in every way! Even the poolside chairs are paired up each morning! and the Italian cakes served at 5pm poolside a nice touch. We did not have hot water in our unit, but I hardly cared. Our valuable safe was not operational...........but we we tucked away in our own hill top world and felt safe. the winery down the hillside is worth the friendly visit and the wines worth picking up!!!

Room Tip: four of the rooms are located on the outdoor patio.............for those who want to seek off early...
