Vocabolo Moscatelli is located on the outskirts of Calzolaro hamlet in Umbria, the Italian region known for hills rich with farmland, twisting vineyards and medieval towns. Opened in August 2022, this design boutique hotel is housed within a former monastery built in the 1300s and pays homage to its history and the region of Umbria, while providing modern updates and amenities.

    Original beamed ceilings, heavy stone fireplaces, and soft wooden floors are met with open, airy spaces, fresh pops of color, and custom artworks and furnishings made by local artists and artisans. The result is a mixture of history and modernity, a property where memory coexists with timeless contemporary design.

    Of the 12 guest rooms and suites, eight are found in the main villa and four others in the nearby annex. As each room is individually designed, there are different pieces of furniture, colors, and layouts, but the overarching tone throughout is one of coziness and warmth. Two suites in the main villa feature large terraces with luxe soaking tubs overlooking the countryside, meanwhile rooms in the annex have private gardens.

    Two unique highlights are suites designed with specific purposes in mind: the Bridal Suite and Spa Suite. The first one features a bespoke mahogany sideboard and formal dressing area with an oversized mirror, while the second has an in-room sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi. The Spa Suite, which has a private garden, can also be quickly transformed into a treatment room.

    The main villa’s ground floor houses the Matite bar and Vocabolo Moscatelli restaurant. Here, Umbrian cuisine is reinvented through vegetarian dishes sourced from suppliers around the corner as well as the onsite garden; and when meat or seafood is on the menu, it always has certified fair-treatment provenance. At Matite, expert mixologists craft unique cocktails from a bar stocked with spirits housed in clear, color-coded bottles—a conscious decision made to replace what is usually a long stretch of labels.

    At the center of the property you will find a piazza with umbrella-topped tables, a bubbling fountain, and a chapel that will host vernissages, light installations, dance parties, ceremonies, and more. Behind the church and across the grounds, guests will also encounter a 30-meter-long iron pergola, a travertine pool, a flowery courtyard, and various lounge areas—all of which are connected by a plethora of paths lined with thick rosemary bushes and ancient oak trees. Inside and out, every space is designed for leisurely interaction, inviting guests to meet each other, relax at their own pace, and tune-in to their surroundings.

    Vocabolo Moscatelli is an Adult Only property and welcomes guests from the age on 14 and on.

    Only nine kilometers from the Tuscan border, nearby activities include trekking, hiking, biking, truffle hunting, wine tastings, taking pottery classes in the onsite chapel hosted by Endiadi ceramics or local painting classes, and visiting cultural sites in towns including Assisi, Cortona, Spoleto, Terni, and Perugia. The Adriatic or Tyrrhenian seaside can be reached via a two-hour drive. The nearest airport is the Umbria International Airport.
