The Relais Borgo Campello in Campello sul Clitunno a few kilometres from Spoleto was turned into an albergo diffuso in 1997 when Vincenzo and Daniela Naschi saved some old buildings that had been reduced to ruins by an earthquake. With an extraordinary dose of imagination they have created an authentic experience turning the ruins, the castle and the monastery into this appealing property far from the beaten tourist track and surrounded by 14th-century walls.

Historical suites and rooms in minimalist style

The Medieval complex, which has been given a minimalist touch, have suites in the old  tower and granary, single rooms in ancient cells rooms, rooms that once belonged to the abbot and the prior and apartments overlooking the valley. The centuries-old beams on the ceilings, ancient terracotta floors, large fireplaces and typical Montefalco furnishings and fabrics all tell of the glorious history of the original manor which was built in 921 by Rovero di Champeaux, Baron of Burgundy, with the two convents being added in 1604.
