Situated atop a sprawling vineyard, Genius Loci celebrates an unspoiled and timeless landscape. The Inn was envisioned, designed and built to delight the discerning traveler. From its historical architecture and panoramic pool, to the breathtaking views and friendly hospitality, Genius Loci is an upscale retreat in the very heart of Umbria.
Genius Loci is so much more than simply an inn with luxurious accommodations, it’s also a destination in and unto itself, a villa to use as your “home away from home.” Some guests come for the views of an unspoiled and timeless landscape. Some come for an authentically Umbrian experience. Still others stay at Genius Loci simply for the beauty and luxury of the Inn alone. But all find themselves smitten with Umbria by the time they leave, because Genius Loci is an inn – and a destination – unlike any other.
While you are our guest, we invite you to take advantage of all the Inn has to offer, both on its premises and off. The Inn’s inviting Reading Room, cozy Bar and stunning panoramic pool make it ideal for relaxation. Out-of-room activities abound at Genius Loci as well. If you find yourself curious about the vineyards outside your window, for example, you can tour the vineyard to see how the local Sagrantino vintage is made. Visit our Winery and Activities section for a complete list of activities.
(Please be advised that the opening and closing dates of the pool vary from year to year: they depend on the weather – Mother Nature can be fickle…and is always in charge.)
At Genius Loci, you will awaken to the aroma of a cappuccino or espresso. Linger over coffee as you enjoy a full continental buffet breakfast on the panoramic porch, mesmerized by the breathtaking view.
After breakfast choose to go sightseeing at one of the charming Umbrian hill towns nearby for a few hours, or simply find your favorite spot at Genius Loci to relax and unwind. Because everything is so close there is time to divide your days between both. Curl up with a good book in the stone-walled Reading Room or on the Solarium (which offers either shade or sun) or share life’s laughter with your partner, friends or family while sipping a drink in the cozy Bar area built around a 1450s oil press or on the glorious panoramic porch.
