Have a break in Umbria at a very special country inn

Italy is a place rich of myths and legends, where you can often breath the original spirit of a landscape.

In the past, the guardian spirit of a place was called Genius Loci, now it’s the name of a relais in Umbria, where you can find the true essence of nature and peace.

Here, atop a sprawling vineyard, it’s possible to enjoy all the beauties of Umbria, the most loved region by foreign tourists: the artistic treasures, as the works of Cimabue and Giotto, the renowned wines, the tasty food and the bucolic countryside are some of the reasons.

Located between Montefalco and Bevagna (both listed by “The Most Beautiful Small Towns” Association), Genius Loci offers eight rooms for a comfortable accommodation, with a breathtaking view of rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves.

Every room has a bathroom with fine Italian marble vanities, and are included services like free Internet wireless access, LCD TV’s, air-conditioned.

This elegant bed & breakfast is the ideal location for a relaxing holiday and a base for exploring the landscape and the surroundings.

You are close to Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto and Spello (half an hour by car), and also to Tuscany and Rome (about one hour and a half, also by train), so you can visit the major points of interest and at the same time relax yourself at the country inn.

This unique farmhouse in Umbria is the result of a detailed restoration, which has brought back to their original splendor the antique stones and bricks, the hand-hewn oak beams and the terracotta floors.

Genius Loci is easily reachable because is situated in Bevagna, near the railway station of Foligno if you arrive by train, but you can also rent a car or take a taxi from Sant’Egidio airport in Perugia.

Furthermore, the guests can rely on Tacconi family to experience the luxury and the comfort of a holiday in a beautiful country estate.

The Tacconi family, in fact, is bi-lingual and bi-cultural: you can ask to Mary for cooking lessons, or discuss with Maurizio about wine and olive oil.

If you want to know the true spirit of Umbria, plan your holiday and choose a destination that isn’t only a place but “a new way of seeing things” as Arthur Miller said, just like this country inn is.
