First class service in a picturesque setting
Perched on a hill in secluded grounds within walking distance of Gubbio, one of Italy’s most beautiful medieval towns, Park Hotel Ai Cappucini, originally a 17th century monastery, has been beautifully transformed into a lovely hotel which blends modern comforts seamlessly with its antique ancestry. The splendid interiors feature artworks including 15th century frescoes, Renaissance paintings and Flemish tapestries plus modern art, sculptures and contemporary Italian furnishings. Attractively furnished guest rooms can be found in the old cloister, although rooms and suites in the new extension offer more sophisticated and contemporary décor. Umbrian specialities, using fresh seasonal produce, can be savoured in the a la carte restaurant offering a wide range of wines from the well-stocked cellar. There’s a wonderfully serene spa, gym and large heated indoor pool which in summer opens up onto a sun terrace, and the Monasticum, the original convent pharmacy, stocks traditional teas and ancient remedies.
