The Convent of Saint Francis was built in the first half of the 1200's near the village of Lugano in Teverina, in southwest Umbria.
St. Francis of Assisi had preached in the village; a legend says that when he arrived he found the people afflicted
by a wolf who had kidnapped a child. The Saint immediately sent a goose to order the wolf to free the child. And so the child was freed. A fresco of this miracle is located in the beautiful church of the Convent.
The Convent, rebuilt in the early 1600s, was recently converted into a charming residence.
Leave your car in the private parking lot located in the Via Crucis and walk along the corridors until you reach the beautiful cloister. Frescoes on the walls tell you about the life of St. Francis, his miracles and his sweetness. Continue your path: upstairs are the ancient monks' cells, now characteristic accommodations, with In allegato the modern conveniences, and a balcony from which you can admire the green hills and small villages.
Returning outside enjoy the amenities and the tranquility of the field: 3 hectares of flower gardens, olive groves, oak woods, surrounded by the wall of the Convent, all open to our guests.
And finally the large semi-olympic pool with changing rooms and lifeguard at your disposal, tennis court and bowling green.
Wi-fi service is available in the common room and in the cloister.
