Relais the Canticle of the Nature of Montesperello
Hi incurable travellers,
You do not even realize that when the summer holidays are a reminder and the winter ones a mirage begins to have the desire to stop a few days to reload. We have chosen this year to enjoy four days in Umbria, a region that particularly loves its villages and the bright colors of autumn landscapes.
We chose the relais of the nature of Montesperello, a structure with a spectacular view of Lake Trasimeno, surrounded by the green-gray of one of the oldest olive groves of the lake and the green of the pine forest , secular chestnuts colored with red bushes and purple wild biscuits that give them their soft scent in the air.
The relais Montesperello’s chant is located at the end of a dirt road but easily accessible, in front of an ancient farmhouse and hunting lodge, masterfully restored and preserved in peculiar characteristics of “countryside” of about three hundred and fifty years.
We were especially impressed by the attention and love that the family Micci, the current owners of the relais The Montesperello Nature Song, devoted the restoration of the structure by combining the use of original materials and respect for the history of those who have lived property in the past with the most modern concepts of bio-architecture and bio-building.
The twelve rooms of the relais The canticle of the nature of Montesperello is identified by the name of a month of the month, reiterating that the harmony between place, nature and inhabitants is one of the main issues for man’s life and the right resting on vacation. Every detail is cared for and designed to welcome the guest, such as a tender heart of red rose petals on the bed and a rich selection of herbal teas for good night.
The property is suitable for families, suites of the very beautiful family, composed of two environments of which one is furnished with themed furniture for children, but especially ideal for a romantic weekend of love.
We would definitely like to spend a Valentine’s Day in the abstract echo, squatting on the round bed looking at the stars from the big windows, taking an aperitif at the pool by admiring the sunset over Lake Trasimeno and ending the day with a relaxing session in exclusive equipped spa or maybe enjoying a nice massage directly in the room.
A special mention at the relais restaurant The Montesperello nature chant, an intimate atmosphere where to sleep in a candle of light, cushioned by gentle and attentive salons, offering delicious dishes with biologists in the area and the well-calibrated combination . I especially liked a simple appetizer and all “poor” but rich in flavor, a velvety chickpea with bread and chicory croutons with a spicy note and a great oil wire; or lean cappellaces lying on pumpkin cream with crunchant ham.
Breakfast proposals range from salat (exceptional local cakes with cake to text) to sweet with brioches and homemade pies, as well as various types of organic jams and honey. Also for the first time we found a whole honey available for tasting, really special taste but extremely enjoyable.
The only regret of the long weekend was the excessive brevity!
