Architecture Nino Nenna

Built stone by stone upon a derelict house, Eremito took four years to create.

Adhering to the 13th-century art of Italian masonry, 130,000 stones were used in its construction. Despite its traditional appearance, Eremito is technologically and sustainably up-to-date. The electricity is generated by a photovoltaic system and while it satisfies the needs of the hotel, the main source of lighting is still candlelight in keeping with the property’s retrospective spirit.

Interior design Marcello Murzilli

A focus on time, peace, and contemplative spaces has resulted in an interior style where natural materials take precedence...

where furnishings are few but comfortable, and where a reliance on candlelight creates the right atmosphere. Taking inspiration from Umbrian monasteries, the design can be described as “Franciscan minimalism”.

Eremito Theme Box 1

Detox A modern hermitage

With over 3,000 hectares of protected natural reserve and considered the spiritual focal point of the country...

thanks to wonderful monasteries in the area, Umbria is a fitting choice for an eco-resort. Eremito’s rooms are called “Celluzze” in the spirit of those ancient monk quarters, while the austere aesthetic aims to provide guests with an “old luxury”experience, meaning plenty of quiet and space to reflect and rejuvenate.

Sustainability Keeping an eye on our Conscious Hotel Principles

“Real luxury for me is fresh air and organic food from the vegetable garden: the rediscovery and appreciation for the essential.”

Icon Architecture (1)


During renovation, the team of local builders disassembled and reassembled the centuries-old structure stone-by-stone, building in robust insulation and respecting the original floor plan of the central building.

Icon Waste (1)


No plastic bottles are used on property. Food waste, all of which is organic, is used to feed the chickens and create compost for the garden.

Icon Energy (1)


Energy consumption at Eremito is very low, thanks to six solar panels, a thermal coat inside the stone walls, and biomass for heating. The main source of lighting is candlelight.

Icon Water (1)


Drinking water is sourced locally from a well at 100 meters. Guests are invited to drink water from the tap. Rather than building a swimming pool, guests swim in the nearby river.
