The huge estate allows for a multitude of recreational activities, all of which will emphasize well-being. Guests will connect with nature and have the chance to join events in the local community. They can learn about the region’s traditions and heritage in the resort’s Experience Pavilion – a place for master classes, craft workshop and wine and food tastings. There are also numerous hiking, cycling and horse-riding trails and a dedicated space for younger guests.
All of the resort’s 71 guest rooms and suites will be located within the historical castle and traditional old borgo buildings. The redevelopment project also includes 79 private residences, which will soon be available to purchase. The properties range from apartments and two-bedroom villas to six-bedroom farmhouses. Whether restoring old buildings or creating from the ground up, all of the buildings will complement the historic traditions of Umbria and blend in with its natural surroundings.
As with Italian culture, food will play a central role in the resort. Along with a range of cooking classes, guests will also be able to dine on traditional recipes made with the finest local produce. The estate will also grow its own herbs, olives, fruit and vegetables to guarantee quality and make the resort as sustainable as possible.
CEO Neil Jacobs of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas said: “Umbria really speaks to me. After many years of studying and living in the country, my connection to Italian people and culture is strong. Six Senses Antognolla lends itself to the creation of a unique community that will touch the hearts of its residents and hosts through honesty and respect for the land coupled with the aligned intention of all its stakeholders. We’re excited to be working on this project that brings together sustainable practices, wellness programming, and out-of-the-ordinary activities for all.”
