About this property

Il Barbacane, When the word small doesn’t mean small, but “beautiful”

For a really breath-taking view you must visit the Eremo del Sole (The Sun Hermitage) with its beautiful houses, big orchard, an olive grove of 2,47 a and 124 acres of forest. From our swimming pool you can see all there places while you are relaxing in the sun. The Barbican, a tastefully restored Country house, small but with so much charm, was always ready to welcome the previous owners guests. It is situated in the quiet and picturesque courtyard of the Eremo. It retains many of the original features, whilst benefiting from modern facilities. This fascinating property was completely built in stone and has handmade terracotta tiles and ceilings with old beams. The interior is elegantly designed with particular attention to the colours of the walls using relaxing pastel tones. One of the best point of the house is the old stone built Gazebo on the courtyard of the Eremo. It’s particularly comfortable with a spectacular view and where you can have very romantic candlelight dinners.

Enjoy also for free our new super fast WiFi internet connection!

Excellent experience.
During a difficult time of travel, the owner of the property made our stay stress free and easy. The owners were exceptionally responsive and helpful in our planning for our visit next year. They gave us space but made us feel like part of the family business all at once. Exceptionally thankful for them and the experience they created for us. The property and views are truly breathtaking. We highly recommend.

Heaven is a place in Umbria
It really is! We could have stayed at Eremo del Sole forever! The most beautiful house in the most magical setting. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Ginevra was the most lovely host, ensuring that we had everything we needed and offering suggestions of things to do and where to eat in Spoleto. The pool is enormous with a plenty of space around it for sunbathing. And the view is incredible! We loved sitting by the outdoor fireplace for aperitivo during sun set - we already miss it! Thank you Ginevra, it was more than perfect!
