Your visit can be customised to personal preference.

This exclusive estate is opening its doors to welcome private guests and their families for the ultimate retreat. The impeccably appointed guest suites and common spaces provide a comfortable pied-à-terre set against a backdrop of magnificent natural beauty.

This historically significant stone monastery, complete with original fireplaces, private terraces and ample leisure and dining rooms, will be a venue to relax and wine & dine as the estate chefs cater to your every need. Enjoy the space, the elegant architecture, and gracious grounds, as if it were your own home.

The Estate features both formal and informal spaces to gather, play or enjoy your privacy. Gathering spaces include a library, billiards and a private theatre, as well as outdoor bocce and a pool with spa services.

History

The former monastery of the Minor Capuchin Friars, first established in 1564—is located in Passignano sul Trasimeno in the vicinity of Umbria known as the home of St. Francis of Assisi. The 60-acre estate stands today as it has for more than four centuries, perched on a hill overlooking Lake Trasimeno and surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Designed according to the tenets of functional devotional simplicity, it was built as a safe haven and respite for pilgrims on their journey to the Holy City. 

Today the estate has been fully restored with an impressive array of modern amenities and state-of-the-art facilities, and stands as a magnificent testament to history and a commitment to the future.

Private Suites

Ten guest suites, including seven signature suites are available. Residential in feel, suites are appointed with unique amenities and décor, airy balconies, tranquil terraces and wood burning fireplaces. All showcase artwork from Lucas’s private collection.

All suites have a king or queen bed, sitting area, state-of-the-art entertainment centers, Wifi access and more.

Gathering Spaces

The essence of the experience is that it is as comfortable and welcoming as a private home. To that end, the property features both formal and informal spaces to gather, relax and play. Recreational suites, the library and numerous reading havens offer sanctuary or encourage socializing, as our guest wishes.

The expansive library features a vast selection of multilingual titles and periodicals. Guests can join in the lounge for billiards and other games and activities. Paintings, cinema posters and sculptures throughout the space, as well as original frescoes and architectural features, ignite the artistic spirit.

The Grounds & Gardens

13 acres of enclosed formal gardens as well as pristine lawns, orchards and olive groves. A fire pit with spectacular views of the medieval town and lights across Lake Trasimeno.

The Pool & Gym

A 65-foot lap pool for swimming or simply relaxing in the warm Mediterranean sun. Poolside food and beverage service at our guest’s request. Fully equipped gym along with yoga, Pilates and personal training sessions.

The Spa

A private spa treatment room as well as a sauna and steam room. Signature treatments themed around Etruscan Apothecary feature healing local ingredients like olive oil, honey and grape seed.

Cuisine and Wine

Dining Areas

Many dining areas and options are available from a formal dining hall to intimate Chef’s table or al fresco dining throughout the gardens and terraces.

Cuisine

Farm-to-table meals—highlighting produce from the property’s organic garden as well as local ingredients—prepared by our seasoned Italian chefs, celebrate a culinary philosophy honoring the social nature of dining. Cooking Lessons are available with the estate chef featuring traditional Umbrian cuisine. Choose seasonal garden produce from the Estate garden and assist in preparing a family style meal with abundant local fare.

Wines

The sprawling wine cellar boasts some of the finest wines that Italy has to offer—eclectic and boutique Italian labels, along with handpicked selections from France and the United States, and the estate’s wine portfolios. In the near future, the estate will produce world class Umbrian wines from its newly constructed winery on property.

The Estate

Under the keen guidance and personal supervision of filmmaker George Lucas, the architecture and grounds have been restored to an exacting standard of excellence, with the modern traveler in mind. Explore the 60-acre working estate, wander through the ancient olive groves, vineyards and garden and discover the new state-of-the-art winery.
