Eating is one of life’s most precious pleasures
So we try to take good care of ourselves and our guests by using the best ingredients we can get our hands on. That’s why we keep our organic garden, where we grow seasonal vegetables and salads. Throughout the gardens, you brush against aromatic herbs such as rosemary, lavender and sage. The summer air is always scented by their heady perfumes. Since we have an olive grove, we produce our own organic extra virgin olive oil, a soothing activity that makes you see life with different eyes.
Friendship is born in the blink of an eye
We love big, comforting morning meals, so breakfast is served daily either on the terrace or in the dining room. It’s a beautiful way to start the day. Imagine other 7 or 8 guys just like you sharing their plans, and the moment they realise they’re headed the same way for the day becoming friends. Imagine that happening in the best background possible: a long table full of Umbria’s tastiest products, homemade jams, bread and cakes; local cheeses and cold cuts from the region, fresh fruit, cereals and homemade yoghurts, honey from our bees and an eclectic variety of teas and, obviously, freshly brewed Italian coffee.
Sharing is loving, but make yourself at home
There’s nothing quite like a table full of food and people around it. Our love for long, heartwarming meals is what encourages us to share them with our guests. However, should you want to enjoy a bit of intimacy with your partner, there’s a private corner hidden deep in the garden for that candle-lit dinner for two. You can also do it yourselves, all the suites are fully equipped with a small kitchen so you can always cook and set a romantic dinner on your own private terrace!
We love the excitement of the unknown
We don’t know and, to be honest, we don’t care we don’t know! We only use the best seasonal products, so it’s impossible to create a fixed menu for the three dinners a week we serve in the summer. But, again, who cares? What will it be tonight, wild asparagus or summer truffles freshly dug? Sweet tomatoes from our garden or intense Umbrian cheese from the market? We love the excitement of the unknown! Also, during summer, we like nothing better than organising barbeque evenings. We invite our guests to help us cook the meat on the grill and become real BBQ masters! We also enjoy a really good wine with our meals, so in our self-service trust bar we have a carefully chosen wine and spirit selection for our guests to pick and enjoy. Cin cin!
Cook it yourself
We can shop for your arrival a hamper of groceries with a selection of excellent Italian goods, all of them eco friendly and many bio. Libera Terra is a brand that sells bio products produced by farmers working fields recovered from the mafia in Puglia and Sicily. Last, but not least, some of the products come straight from Bellaugello! Check out our ‘get started hamper’ and tell us what you think!
