Rastrello Boutique Hotel Architecture

Architecture David Morini, Pelizzari Studio

This 8-room palazzo from the 14th century was lovingly brought to life by Pelizzari Studio, which specializes in historical renovations.

The building is a historically accurate representation of architecture from 500 years ago, a time when confined medieval-style spaces gave way to more expansive ones. Original stone walls and structural elements, such as beams and ironwork, honor the timeless feel of the region. All rooms were organically crafted to face the valley, offering stellar meditative views of nearby Lake Trasimeno. A complimentary aperitif can be enjoyed while watching the sunset from the hotel’s garden.

Interior design Claudia Pelizzari, Pelizzari Studio

Custom-made local furniture, travertine marble, Pietra Serena sandstone, bricks, beams, and ironwork create both a contemporary and timeless feel.

Using a color palette inspired by the landscapes of the Umbrian countryside, designer Claudia Pelizzari created guestrooms that are each different in style and feel, yet that still adhere to a larger, old-world Umbrian universality. The design approach is a direct result of the restoration, which creates a symbiosis between age-old materials and contemporary elements. Seasonal exhibitions by local artists and a Renaissance-style garden, pruned as it would have been 500 years ago, complete the inspiring setting.

Food & Drink Old World and Organic

Rastrello Cucina & Giardino celebrates its setting in the historic center of Panicale with farm-to-table organic fare...

prepared by celebrated regional chef Nicola Fanfano. The menu is closely linked to the region and thus dictated by the seasonality of each ingredient, including what is harvested daily from the hotel’s gardens. The open kitchen produces fresh, organic cuisine, with diners set on a panoramic garden terrace in the warmer months. Special meals are periodically crafted from recipes developed by elderly locals. Breathtaking views of the valley and Lake Trasimeno can be had year-round. A welcoming lounge, meanwhile, is a place to quietly enjoy breakfast, a glass of wine, a midnight snack, or a relaxed moment in the day.

Offbeat Destinations Umbria in all its beauty

Set on a hilltop town overlooking a valley, the hotel captures the verdant-meets-timeless essence of Umbria.

Recognized as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, Panicale caters to world travelers who want an authentic Italian experience—true village life far from the big city. Though small, the village is home to several fine restaurants and cafes, and set close to such lovely Umbrian towns as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Solomeo, Montefalco, Gubbio, and Deruta. The celebrated villages of Tuscany are also close at hand.

Food & Drink Olive pure

A small rake used to pick olives by hand, “rastrello” is the perfect namesake for the hotel, which produces premium extra virgin olive oils from its olive grove.
