Our farmhouse is a thousand years old, located between hills and woods so deeply immersed in nature, far away from traffic noise and light pollution. Casa della Pace is situated in the northern part of Umbria, the core of Italy and a few kilometres from Gubbio and Città di Castello.
Seminars and retreats
Since 1999 we have offered our farmhouse to yoga and meditation teachers, and for other activities that are in tune with the spirit of the place. It is also perfect for seminar retreats.
Single visitors and families
Single visitors and families wishing for a quiet vacation in nature whilst being very close to historical towns are also welcome. Guests may want to use Casa della Pace for a personal retreat.
At the heart of our home is the beautiful ancient chapel, dating back to the 11th Century. It has been sensitively restored and is used for both meetings and as a practice studio.
Meals, during the warm season, are served on the beautiful terrace which has spectacular views overlooking the valley. When the weather is cooler the food is served inside.
In the peaceful garden surrounding the house, guests can relax in the hammocks while sunbathing and enjoying the landscape. During the summer months a splash pool is available.
For those who like hiking there are marked paths close to the house. Guests are able to explore woods and hilltops.
We have nine rooms offering accommodation, and can comfortably sleep up to twenty-two people.
Our vegetarian/vegan kitchen
Our food is purely vegetarian, mainly organic or locally sourced where possible. All the food is cooked in the farmhouse kitchen. The meals are well balanced and a mix of Italian, international, and our own unique recipes. There is always a vegan option on offer and we are happy to provide special diets as necessary. During the day a variety of teas and fruits are available for guests to help themselves. When requested we serve local, organic wine.
The spirit of the place is to live with kindness, attention and openness. To encourage relationships with nature that life here offers, and to cooperate with those we meet to make the spirit of Casa della Pace become concrete and real.
