About this Hotel

Price From $122

You've seen their ravioli at supermarkets, but did you ever think you'd be crashing at the Buitoni family's country house? The centuries-old Locanda della Rocca Buitoni, a russet tower in Umbria, has been in the family for 150 years, and chef Luigi Buitoni now rents it out to up to eight people. The 5,382-square-foot house has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a chapel, and several frescoed salons. It anchors Paciano (population 974), a 13th-century hamlet set amid olive groves on Mount Petravella, where the stone houses topped by terra-cotta roof tiles are threaded by only three streets and eight alleys, the whole no more than 600 yards long and still bound by a medieval defensive wall with towers and town gates.

Free Wi-Fi? No; the nearest Internet café is in Panicale, the neighboring village.

Credit Cards Accepted No; deposits can be made through Paypal or by bank transfer and the remainder paid in cash upon arrival.

Details Doubles from $122, including breakfast. Villa rentals are available for $2,575–$3,960 per week depending on season.
