Our charming rooms mostly derive from the old cells where the Benedictine monks of the abbey used to live, or from the lodge, and every room is different from the other: some rooms have a fireplace, others wooden shelves and niches, built-in wardrobes, lobbies or loopholes.
The unique, timeless atmosphere of the abbey can be felt everywhere, in every room.
You can choose among different kinds of accommodation in every part of the abbey:
Rooms in the guardroom
Four rooms in the newest part of the Abbey, dating back to 1500. These rooms were originally the storehouse, but today they have been transformed into comfortable rooms with private bathroom, shower, TV set, mini fridge and hairdryer.
They are on the mezzanine floor and can be reached from the main portico of the Abbey. Two rooms overlook the inner garden and the apses of the church, the other two rooms overlook the surrounding landscape, with the beautiful contrast between green and blue. Klimaanlage
Rooms in the lodge
Four rooms on the ground floor in the small cloister, daring back to 15th century. They are intimate and secluded; they can be reached through a small door.
These rooms were originally built in order to welcome possible guests in the abbey, a place where they could rest and eat before setting put on their journey again.
That old spirit still survives inside these 4 rooms: every room has a low ceiling, a small, well-lit window in the thick wall, and bathroom
They still remind us of the original cells assigned to the monks, here you can easily find silence and peace inside yourself. Every one with air conditioning.
Rooms in the cloister
Eleven rooms on the first floor, with entrance from the cloister. Every room is different, unique in its style. The old vestry is a large room with a small spiral staircase near the wardrobe (today it is closed) which was probably used to connect the room with the upper apse.
Two rooms overlook the small cloister, one of them has a fireplace too.
Four rooms on the second floor are well lit and comfortable.
They are similar, one next to the other, comfortable and confidential, overlooking the wonderful valley. From the beautiful portico, dating back to 12th century, we get to three beautiful rooms overlooking the village of Umbriano: the old kitchen is a small piece of art, with a big fireplace and shelves made of stone.
The rooms are called Fra Lazzaro and Fra Donato, they are both comfortable and large, each one with its small living room. Just round the corner we find two more charming rooms.
They overlook the Mount Solenne, where the abbey lies as well. They are comfortable, sober and well kept. The walls are very thick and here you can really breath the Benedictine history. Every one with bathroom and Air conditioning
On the ground floor, with entrance from the cloister. It used to be the Caretaker’s room, he actually controlled the entrance and the monks’ private area.
