Gubbio, Umbria

Originally built in the 11th century, and reportedly part of Francis of Assisi’s circuit, Metamorefosi at Vaccaria is now a small, beautiful hotel. We have taken that beautiful house in one of the few natural places left and recovered the monastery, villa and farmhouse in such a way that the original splendour is brought back to life.

Surrounded by sweet air, silence, pure water, woodlands, mountains and gentle cultivation you can spend all your time resting or walking and sharing the beautiful surroundings with the wild animals.

Our location is such, like the hub of a spoked wheel, that no matter in which direction you set off, you will find amazing places. At the hub, nearby towns of Gubbio, Assisi, the city of Perugia and LakeTrasimeno. Next orbit Florence, Arezzo, The Adriatic, Mount Sibillini, Spoleto and Orvieto. Rome and Pisa can be found on the rim of our wheel and can be done within a day.

Enjoy silence in a stylish ambience

Each of our rooms absorbs the tranquillity of the surroundings. We have decorated with naturally pigmented paints, traditionally Italian, flooring with ancient terracotta, beds with rest inducing mattresses and coverings of antique linen. And then we have added our beautiful Chinese and Japanese antiques and antique furniture. The bathrooms fitted of course with stylish Italian bathwear are fed from our own springs so that you can drink and bathe in the gentle mineral waters.

Healing retreat and workshops

Reiki, yoga, stimulating workshops and an amazing dvd and book library will massage your spirit and mind. We will nourish you with food that is as natural and inspiring as the landscape and rooms in which you stay.

Let Janice explain and show how wildcrafted sustainable herbs heal and soothe or prepare a unique perfume just for you.

We do vegan cooking classes, make our own wildcrafted herbal treatments and perfumes. We cater for weddings and other large groups too.

People come to Vaccaria to write literature and to study. Poets, writers and painters are welcome to draw inspiration. We have an extensive library both in book form and dvd. We organise hikes along via di Francesca, nature rambles in the Valley di Chiascio and visits to the very special bio dynamic growing areas that provide us with our grains, oils, fruit and vegetables.
