Try to erase the word «boredom» from your mind, ‘cause you won’t have time enough to get bored at our gay country house. There’s always something to do here, even if it’s only spending the day lazily soaking up the sun at the infinity swimming pool. It’s 15x5m, large enough for a proper swim, and has amazing views. Also, it’s treated by salt, which produces natural chlorine, better for your skin and friendlier to the environment.
Also, during cooler months, we light the stove in the Finnish sauna for our guests to let the dry heat sweat their tensions away.
Book a relaxing massage with our masseur, relax, enjoy your treatment under the dappled shade of the old oak tree.

Umbria is unique. In the blink of an eye you will be easily saying words of love to its green rolling fields. Next thing you are is in love with its remote mountains. And it goes on and on with its rivers, its valleys, its medieval hill top towns, its wonderful vineyards, its golden sunflower fields, its amazingly tasty food, its stunning frescoes… everything! Bellaugello is off the beaten track, far from madding crowds yet full of places all around to quietly explore and ingest.
Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto and Todi are exquisite medieval cities, each different, each entrancing, each holding unique cultural events, be it crossbow competitions, men in tights throwing flags, men racing huge candles uphill or music and art festivals. Escape the towns, walk in the footsteps of Pinturicchio and Signorelli, and delight in the slow pace of Umbrian life.
