L'ARIETE stands for peace, space and relaxation. The property in the heart of Renaissance Italy consists of 2 residential buildings and offers 6 independent spacious suites with 1 or 2 bedrooms (45-80 m² each) and fully equipped kitchens plus a private restaurant. L´Ariete is set amongst 20 acres of private land including a vineyard, with uninterrupted views towards Montone, elected one of Italy´s most beautiful medieval hamlets.
Elegant rooms invite you to enjoy a bottle of fine 'Grechetto' and read the book you planned to read for so long. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the 100 m² pool, browse through the library, or just find yourself a quiet place among the trees, smell the scent of lavender, watch our sheep peacefully resting in the shade of the orchard, listen to the birds and have a nap in one of the hammocks or deck chairs. A vegetable garden is available for our guests, a small grocery shop offers selected regional and home-made products, the restaurant is exclusively open to our guests for a typical Umbrian dinner. Belle vacanze!
