A splendid period residence from 1579 located at the foot of the city of Perugia and a few minutes from Assisi, in the green Umbrian countryside, represents a real symbiosis between art, history and nature: a villa embellished with original frescoes and paintings from the 1700s and from 1800 by famous exponents of the Perugian school of painting such as Giuli and Appiani, surrounded by a botanical park of over 2 hectares.
The structure has 48 rooms, elegantly furnished, with attention to detail through the use of precious materials and perfectly integrated into the architectural context. The rooms are located in the two buildings of Villa Laura and Villa Costanza. The two villas are connected to each other by an air-conditioned glass walkway that crosses the park and along which there is also the access to the brand new “Donini Spa Bio Wellness & Historical Park 1579”. A suggestive glass room immersed in the romantic wood hosts the breakfast buffet and the American bar. During the summer it is possible to use the outdoor swimming pool surrounded by the park of the Villa.
Thanks to the precious details such as the frescoed ceilings, the exposed beams, the four-poster bed and other valuable elements, each hotel room is a synthesis of refinement and personality declined in different types: Classic, Executive, Deluxe, Junior Suite and the “103” is a designer Junior Suite. The Classic and the Executive are located inside Villa Laura. Villa Costanza, the historic part of the Hotel Alla Posta dei Donini, houses the Deluxe, the Junior Suite and the exclusive “103”, a single room with eighteenth-century frescoes from the school of Francesco Appiani. Furthermore, still in the splendid setting of Villa Costanza, there is the Gran Suite, consisting of two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and another 4 between halls and lounges embellished with original frescoes, paintings and painted doors of the ‘700. The Deluxe rooms and Junior Suites in Villa Costanza all overlook the botanical park. All rooms are non-smoking. Some rooms have facilities and access for the disabled.
