Can I come and stay?
Yes! Visit Monestevole and stay in one of our three fully independent apartments.
Chiesetta, Due Elementi and Cielo sleep up to 4, 4, and 10 respectively.
We are open April - November. We're also still available for workshops and group bookings, and for a large group you can make an exclusive hire of the whole house.
Can I come and volunteer?
We do not offer volunteer opportunities, work exchange or woofing, sorry.
What about meals?
Our apartments each have a kitchen (kitchenette in the case of Chiesetta) with oven, dishwasher, fridge and stove top. We now offer self-catering stays.
How is the weather?
Umbria has four distinct seasons. Winters often see temperatures fall below freezing and snow is frequent. Spring is windy and bright green. Summers are pleasantly hot and breezy, and fall is harvest time.

What should I bring?
Weather here is changeable, and we’re at 600 metres, so layers and a waterproof jacket are a good idea.
We supply towels and linens, organic shampoo and shower gel. Please ensure any cosmetics you bring are as natural as possible, as all our water gets filtered though our living water filtration system.
As part of our commitment to sustainable practices, we do not heat the house beyond 18 celsius. This may be cooler than you are used to at home....so we recommend bringing a sweater and slippers for inside the house in the evening.
In the summer, walking shoes and a bathing suit, a light sweater for the evening’s outdoor meals. In the spring and fall, walking shoes to get muddy, workout clothes, and sweaters for the evening. In the winter, boots, heavy clothes, and waterproof jackets, warm socks and house slippers
How do I get there?
There are no buses or public means to reach Monestevole. You will need a vehicle for your stay with us. Find us.
Is Monestevole safe for kids?
Monestevole is an ideal location for kids, however, we are a working farm with live animals and machinery, and we ask all our guests to sign liability waivers.
The pool is private and without a lifeguard, guests are welcome to use it at their own discretion but minors are not allowed unattended.
Do you have internet and cell phone coverage?
Yes, free wifi is available throughout the house.
Cell phone coverage is spotty due to thick walls and distance from the antenna.
