Offering all the serenity and just a hint of the austerity of an ancient abbey, the 12-room Umbrian hotel Eremito is set within 3,000 hectares of protected natural reserve. In a time when quietude is the highest luxury, hotelier Marcello Murzilli adopted traditional 13th-century masonry techniques to erect this atmospheric, modern monastery whose name is derived from “eremita,” the Italian word for hermit. Guests can expect Gregorian chants, silent communal dinners, and a room designed to host a solo traveler, although a couple may be housed in one room, subject to availability. A truly abstinent digital detoxification is possible due to a refreshing absence of Internet access, telephones, televisions, and buzzing appliances; and cellphone service is sporadic thanks to the hotel’s isolated location.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
It’s not so common for a luxury hotelier to live in a tent for four years, especially one that founded a successful Italian fashion brand. Meet Marcello Murzilli, the founder of the El Charro label that propelled him around the world on a sailing boat for two years before he decided to dive into hospitality. Continuing his romance with nature, Murzilli now prioritizes ecology, technology, and spirituality in his day-to-day life, stripping back the conception of luxury to simply "the joy of living."
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
After an arduous stone-by-stone construction lasting four years, Eremito is a showcase of traditional Italian masonry born from the 13th century. The property was built upon a derelict house in Italy’s Umbria region and places sustainability on top of its priority list. The interior is grounded in traditional concepts of luxury; namely time, peace, and spaces promoting introspection. Natural materials reign throughout, while candlelight and comfortable furniture combine to create a unique, rarely seen display of Franciscan minimalism.
