Among the lovely Umbrian hills, which softly brushes the timeless splendour of Assisi and Perugia, Ripa Relais is the ideal location for a romantic getaway or a relaxing and beneficial weekend. This wonderful country house, with its 200 years of history, consists of four old farmhouses, which have been carefully restored in order to preserve the old time essence and charm. In these former farm buildings, there are 16 rooms and suites, which stand out for their selected furniture and accessories: evocative wooden-beamed ceilings, beautiful wrought-iron beds, handcrafted period furniture, exclusively created for the Relais, and curtains and blankets coming from the valuable and refined Montefalco’s embroidery art. There are three different kinds of lodgings: classic, comfort or suites. The most famous one is Suite Torre (Tower Suite): 35 square metres of pure beauty and elegance divided into two floors, with a private entrance, wooden loft, wrought-iron canopy, refined furniture, and, last but not least, a spectacular circular hydro-massage tub with two seats.
Nothing is left to chance in Ripa Relais, where every detail is carefully designed to host the guests and make them experience the dreamy atmosphere that characterizes every corner of the building. Among lavender bushes, majestic olive trees and romantic stone paths, this lovely country relais is the ideal place to have a break from the chaotic everyday life. You have the chance to relax, especially in the exclusive spa, where you can enjoy the best wellness treatments to restore your body and soul: the sensual candle massage, the traditional shiatsu massage, the old crystal massages, and the restoring hydrotherapic treatment, followed by foot reflexology. A real beauty and peace oasis, adorned with the wonderful swimming pool surrounded by the grass and flowers of the luxuriant garden, where, during summer, you can relax, get a tan, read and have lunch in the open air.
The old nineteenth-century farmhouse, instead, houses the Relais, which proposes an overwhelming culinary experience that satisfies the most demanding palates: house extra virgin olive oil, handmade bread, pasta and desserts, prepared with local raw materials. Everything is meticulously cooked by the Ripa Relais’ chef, respecting the seasonality of the ingredients.
On the one end, staying in the Relais is like living in soap ball that lightly dances in the air, on the other this fantastic country house is located in an ideal position to visit the most beautiful Umbrian towns (Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto, Todi, Orvieto) or explore the spectacular beauties of Italy’s green heart: Valnerina, Altotevere, the wild hills surrounding Lake Trasimeno and southern Tuscany..
