Simplicity and class, along with the natural beauty of the spectacular landscape offered by the Umbrian countryside and a history full of charm and suggestion. Legend says that Antico Borgo San Pietro Aquaeortus has been named after the prince of apostles who, while passing through this village, performed a miracle: he made water gush to administer a baptism. This is the reason why the village is called Acquae Ortus, which means source of life.
From a historical point of view, Antico Borgo San Pietro Aquaeortus formerly was an abbatial complex founded by the Hermits of Saint William during the XI century and then it was inhabited by the Benedictines until the middle of the XVII century. It is a big little jewel nestled in the hills of Selva di Meana Park. Thanks to its beauty, history and charm, it represents the ideal location for an exclusive and unforgettable wedding reception.
Once you cross the gate of this lovely hamlet that collects 900 years of history, you are immediately enchanted by its atmosphere suspended in time and space: the stones, the columns, the arches, the roofs, the bell tower and the stream that lovely flows under the joyful fluttering swallows. In Antico Borgo San Pietro Aquaeortus, everything is magic: every corner, every view, every detail catapult anyone into a dreamy dimension, characterised by peace and harmony.
The square of the village is the core of this perfect location. The outdoor spaces, designed by a landscape architect, are decorated with plants, flowers, typical Umbrian fruit trees, and almost forgotten herbs, and represent the ideal scenario for a refined and suggestive outdoor banquet. The spectacular swimming pool, which dominates the entire valley, is the ideal setting for a romantic and refined welcome aperitif or for the wedding-cake cutting illuminated by an infinite sky full of stars.
The restaurant of this establishment proposes natural and traditional dishes, prepared only with high-quality products. The bride and the groom will exclusively enjoy Antico Borgo and completely rely on a careful and highly qualified staff’s professionalism and expertise. They will oversee every detail in order to turn the most important day of their lives into a unique and unforgettable dream.
