I CAPRICCI DI MERION TUORO SUL TRASIMENO-UMBRIA

I Capricci di Merion



The Villa
Welcome to our historic villa! Our name, which means "the Whims of Merion", is after Lady Merion, a marvellous woman who lived in the late 19th century, and one of her whims.

Doubting her lover, the Baron of Rondò, she had him prove his love by building her a house where she could surround herself by her beloved art and play her harp in absolute peace.
The eccentric and cosmopolitan Merion lived at the height of the Liberty style which was exploding throughout Europe.
The "Capricci di Merion" agritourism is a completely renovated Liberty-style villa, located near Lake Trasimeno amidst the lush greenery of Umbria.

  
The Rooms
The atmosphere that surrounds this villa is infused with Merion's passion for painting, poetry and music. The rooms abound in references to the architectural styles that she loved. Our guests will appreciate the care taken in choosing fabrics for towels, sheets and curtains. All are of the finest quality and 100% natural.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Restaurant
In the cozy dining areas, you can enjoy fine cuisine that is rich in the local tradition in a refined atmosphere befitting the lifestyle of the noblewoman who originally lived in this villa.

The delicious meals served in our restaurant are enlivened by the magical, delicate sound of live harp music.
The harp is a wonderful, delicate instrument that evokes the times in which Merion loved to entertain her guests with the finest music.
Our cellar contains carefully selected wines from the best labels in Umbria and Italy.


Wellness Center
Walking through the olive groves that surround the villa, lounging on the grass of the lawn or simply sitting in the garden admiring the view, you can still enjoy the same sensations that Merion and her lover experienced once upon a time.
In this atmosphere, our guests can luxuriate in a swimming pool nestled in a green yard and a little corner dedicated to wellness which includes a sunbed, a sauna, a "massage zone" and a Jacuzzi tub, special touches that make a stay in the Villa all the more unique and exclusive.
Our outdoor swimming pool merits special note. It is filled with salt water and features a wonderful two-level hydromassage corner. The peace in the park around the villa is met by the gentle sound of the water falling softly from one level to the other in the pool.
