A luxury guest house in Umbria, La Preghiera, originally a 12th Century monastery, is an historic house, Residenza d'Epoca, which has been restored to an elegant country house estate offering bed and breakfast accommodation near Perugia, Cortona, Gubbio, Assisi, Spello, Deruta, Todi, Orvieto, Lake Trasimeno and Città di Castello.
In the heart of the Umbrian countryside, this luxury bed and breakfast guest house is only a short drive away from Perugia, the ancient medieval capital of Umbria, and half an hour's drive from Perugia airport with frequent Ryanair flights from Stansted. Not a hotel, La Preghiera country house provides sumptuous accommodation for a holiday in Umbria, the centre of Italy.
"A stranger is a friend as yet unmet" is an old Umbrian proverb. This philosophy guides La Preghiera. The best traditions of the better country houses transported to the gentle hills of Umbria, La Preghiera offers our guests comfortable, elegant and sophisticated country-house hospitality.
If you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful place in Umbria and for frendly hosts, do not look any further. This B&B is beautyful and romantic and one of our favourites during our trip in Umbria and Toscane.
Beautiful room, gorgeous, peaceful grounds, with a lovely little covered patio where we could sit, listen to the birds chirp and relax!
John and Lilliana were very friendly, informative and made us feel very welcome.
The pool was very nice (refreshing) as it is not heated.
A fantastic place to stay!
