In the middle of the Trasimeno Valley, surrounded by gentle and fertile hills, Four Star Superior ’Relais Alla Corte del Sole’, a quite and peaceful oasis, is perfect for those who yearn to be entranced by traditional flavors and great cuisine, and the comfort and hospitality of a charming and refined country residence.
Relais “Alla Corte del Sole” is situated in the wonderful Trasimeno Lake countryside, overlooking the historical town of Cortona, whose charm has been further popularized thanks to the words of Frances Mayes, a famous writer who poeticized its unique beauty.
Amidst a large flower and olive tree filled garden you will be able to relax by the pool, or in the Orangerie, and savor one or indeed many of our resident Chef’s dishes at ‘L’Essenza’ (“The Essence”), our restaurant.
The ancient monastic village where the Relais takes shelter was skillfully restored in the exact manner of the original architecture. The 17 rooms we obtained from the buildings are furnished with antiques, paintings, rugs and curtains that give every room a unique atmosphere.
The Breakfast Room offers our guests a rich buffet of sweets and savory tartlets, fresh squeezed fruit and a wide range of teas; a delightful experience to help you begin the day at your best.
