Sina Brufani has an impressive history. It first opened in 1884 and has welcomed plenty of distinguished guests since then, including the Queen Mother. We love the character of this hotel. They’ve carefully upgraded the property to include a bit of five-star luxury but they’ve done it in a way that celebrates the building’s history. Every room is individually decorated with antique furniture and either soft carpets or parquet floors. The star of the show is the spa – it’s under Medieval vaults and the pool has a glass bottom so you can see the 3,000-year-old Etruscan ruins as you swim.

We recommend trying the elegant Collins Restaurant where you can eat some of the best Umbrian dishes, accompanied by the region’s excellent wines. Sit outside on the terrace for an aperitif or drink after dinner. You’ll be right in the centre of Perugia here so you can sit back and enjoy the city atmosphere and stunning views across the Umbrian hills.

Car hire is recommended for this hotel. SINA Brufani is approx. 2 hours 15 mins from Rome airport.

A holiday to Umbria is your chance to slow down and really experience la dolce vita. This central region is the green heart of Italy, so expect working villages that live life at a peaceful pace.

In fact, even the cities take things easy. Assisi balances on a hilltop covered in churches, including the gothic Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi. The National Gallery of Umbria idles in Perugia’s Palazzo dei Priori. And the medieval town of Gubbio serves up sweeping views of the Apennines from its cable car.

Wherever you decide to stay in Umbria, great wine (try a glass or two of Montefalco) and hearty home-cooked food (think truffles, porcetta and pecorino) are guaranteed.


Pool & Spa

The wellness area is located in the medieval vaults beneath the hotel. The pool has a transparent bottom that looks down into the ruins of an Etruscan settlement that dates back 3000 years - so its a pretty special place for a swim. There's a sauna, Turkish bath and relaxation area down here too - so its easy to relax down here in this tranquil setting. There are in-room Spa massages and treatments on request, which you can book and pay for locally. 

Opening times: 7am - 10pm
