In Umbria, only a short distance from Perugia and Lake Trasimeno rises Monte Solare, associated from ancient times with the cult of Apollo, the sun god. Here, among the various green of the olives groves, vineyards and woods, stands the old, noble villa. The walled Italian garden, the chapel of Santa Lucia and the orangery enclose the Villa in an atmosphere of tranquility.
The Villa retains unchanged many of its original characteristics: large fireplaces, walls decorated with murals, ancient terracotta floors and period furnishing. In the restaurant one find traditional Italian cooking interpreted with creativity and refinement. The cellar contains over 400 Umbrian wines.
The beautiful villa has the intimate and happy atmosphere of a place adored and cared for, and guests soon feel at home in the warm ambiance created by the owners, Rosemarie and Filippo Iannarone. Built in 1780, on 15th-century foundations, Monte Solare was, from the beginning, a patrician house and in 1885 was bought by an aristocratic family who restored the charming 16th-century chapel in the grounds and redecorated the interior.
Enjoy an unforgettable, romantic vacation in Italy’s green heart. The Hotel is looking forward to welcome you in its peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. A charming Spa & beauty farm are within the grounds of our hotel.
