Film Friendly Hotel: Eremito Hotelito del Alma, Umbria, Italy
Eremito Hotelito del Alma
Eremito Hotelito del Alma is the ideal place for those who realise that peace and quiet are essential ingredients to find inner peace. It’s a mystical place, fruit of a long journey of self discovery. The place is majestically located within Umbrian valleys, this amplifies the sense of spirituality enchanting the eyes and the soul.
Today, as in previous centuries, Eremito maintains as close as possible the core and the feeling of the ancient monasteries where time stood still.
To enjoy an ideal place to relax, rest and to concentrate in creative activities or to meditate, is a luxury in today’s world. This is what we wish to offer to our clients.
The so called “Celluzze” are as the cells used by the hermits in past times who in their small and simple spaces were able to find time for meditation and prayer. Eremito has 14 rooms with a wrought iron bed, a shower and toilet.
The temperature in the rooms is always constant without a need for air-condition, there is also under floor heating for the colder months.
We have taken care on the details of the rooms: the bedding is made of hand-made hemp yarn.
Although the basic comforts are in the room, you will not find a telephone, TV nor wi-fi connection. Instead you will find a comfortable desk made of stone by the window where one can be inspired while admiring the green valley.
The style of our dwelling reflects itself also for the meals, our menu is simple and basic.
We offer a healthy and moderate diet, one which chooses recipes from monastic mediterranean tradition. Tastes and smells which remind one of Umbrian traditions and small villages built near-by monasteries.
The cuisine of Eremito is vegetarian with a fixed menu. A lot of fresh vegetables and fruits are served, all in season; bread and pasta are home made as are jams and cakes.
Please advice us, when booking, if you have a special diet, requirement or intolerance to any foods.
In the winter months all the meals are served in our Refectory where a large stone fireplace stands. In the summer and warm spring days we use space outside surrounded by trees and fabulous views of the woods.
The Relax Area
The relax area, next to the Yoga room, is very evocative. It is entirely dug out from rock, here you can lay back and distance your self from life’s stress taking a steam bath and also using a whirlpool tub.
You can drink our natural teas and especially our “Melemito”, a hot and sweet drink. You will enjoy every moment dedicated to relax: abandon yourself to the pleasures of it.
