Antognolla is a unique project in Italy in terms of its concept; combining a luxury hotel in a medieval castle, stylish serviced residential properties, an exceptional golf course and a luxurious spa complex – all of which will be operated by a world-renowned international hospitality brand.
Food and wine culture: Six Senses Antognolla Marks the Brand’s Second Opening in Italy.
Umbria is the green heart of Italy. It is with an open heart that Six Senses Antognolla will welcome guests to a rural escape against the backdrop of olive groves, vineyards and cypress-topped hills.
There will be 71 rooms and 79 branded residences at Six Senses Antognolla, a diverse wellness and cultural offering, 18-hole golf course, equestrian center, cookery school and organic farm. Encompassing a 1,335-acre (540-hectare) site, the surrounding contours and forest provide privacy and exclusivity, while the variety of facilities and activities make it a year-round destination.
Six Senses Antognolla is set to open in 2023.
Six Senses Antognolla is located 12.5 miles (20 kilometers) north of Perugia, close to the regional border of Tuscany. It also borders the Monte Tezio – the highest mountain within the municipality of Perugia – and is a short distance from Lake Trasimeno. Although remote, the secluded area of natural Umbrian countryside is still within easy reach of Florence (1 hour 45 minutes) and Rome (2 hours 15 minutes) and is a 25-minute drive from the international airport of Umbria.
The charm of Umbria’s ancient towns and villages is complemented by its cuisine, which is renowned for superb ingredients and authentically rustic dishes. Guests and residents will enjoy the very best of local produce, including herbs, olives, fruit and vegetables grown on the estate itself.
There will be many opportunities to dive into wine experiences, including sessions on plant and plantation care and management, learning about organic wine production and a thrilling and event-packed harvesting season.
For those seeking an authentic Italian experience, the 12th-century Castello di Antognolla is located on the site of a 10th-century Benedictine monastery and crypt, with traces of a Roman settlement. As the scene of many sieges and struggles in the Middle Ages, for centuries it was the seat of one of Perugia’s most powerful noble families
The 71 guest rooms and suites will be located within the historical castle and traditional old borgo buildings. The 79 luxury residences, which will soon be available to purchase, range from apartments and two-bedroom villas to six-bedroom farmhouses, combining the heritage of Umbria with the comfort of modern living. All accommodations offer a unique home-from-home retreat thanks to the location, design features and abundant resort facilities.
Six Senses Spa will be located within a contemporary wing of the new main building, and will offer wellness programming that incorporates sleep health, nutrition, movement and self-discovery.
Running through the center of the estate, the 18-hole golf course has been designed by renowned designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. With long, cliff-lined fairways, undulating greens and pesky lakes, the course has been installed to provide year-round playability and quick-drying surfaces. Drainage water is captured and recycled, boosting the course’s eco-credentials.
