Liliane et John sont très chaleureux et (website hidden) recommande vivement La Preghiera.
Lilliana & John are most welcoming. We planned to stay at La Prehiera for a night or two during a 6 week motor tour of Europe, but found it difficult to move on after a week there! Conversation with our hosts flowed equally easily in Italian, English and Spanish. Busy people, they have many interests, not to mention an encyclopedic knowledge of Umbria, while maintaining a high standard of accommodation.
In a very secluded location set in mature gardens, yet near enough to a small town and larger cities for convenience, La Preghiera is truly a retreat. An ancient group of buildings, the old monastery and grounds have been sensitively restored and converted to incorporate modern conveniences, and though our visit was at the end of a busy season, there was a feeling of squeaky clean crisp newness about everything, from the decor to the bed linen, the en suite to our comfortably proportioned bedroom and the living rooms.
Its difficult to do La Preghiera justice in words or photographs.

I have stayed at La Preghiera for a week in August, Lilliane and the team made me feel welcome from the beginning and made sure I was catered for. The building is beautiful and with a car there are some great little towns nearby to explore (Montone being a highlight), and there are all the necessary amenities in the nearby area.
The pool is perfect in the summer!
