Nestled in a lush valley, at an altitude of 1140 metres, between the green mountains of Tuscany and Romagna, Relais Sant'Alberico is an ancient Camaldolese monastery dating back to the year 986 that has been carefully restored and now houses a small, refined Relais.

The evocative history of the Monastery tells of centuries of prayer and work (in the forests and in the old water-powered sawmill) by a religious community that remained active until the mid-1800s.

Abandoned following the abolition of monastic orders, and falling into disrepair, the Monastery has since been carefully restored in keeping with its original architecture, using local stone and wood from the surrounding forests. St. Alberic Monastery is reborn today as an ideal destination for those seeking the most authentic relaxation.

On the slopes of Monte Fumaiolo, where the Tiber river that reaches Rome, the eternal city, has its source, the Sant'Alberico Monastery is a place of peace and serenity, immersed in nature and surrounded by the centuries-old forests of our Natural Park that extends over 400 hectares and embraces the surrounding mountains.

The ancient walls surrounding the Monastery enclose an evocative place: a spring of mineral water flows naturally beside the Relais, the rustle of the wind through the trees, the calls of birds in the distance.

The Relais Sant'Alberico offers relaxing stays to those who love Nature and enjoy walks or e-bike excursions among wild flowers, fragrant essences, and those who love to admire views and natural glimpses.

The hotel offers attentive hospitality and a friendly, informal atmosphere, refined rooms that combine the charm of old walls, local wood and stone with modern comforts in a pleasant mix that instils relaxation and tranquillity.

The gourmet restaurant Sant'Alberico and the Monastero Wine Bar offer delicious moments of taste: from breakfast in the morning, which we also serve in the garden in summer, to the exquisite dishes created by chef Cristian Riccio at lunch and dinner.

The restaurant's menu offers dishes prepared with local ingredients and foods, including the fruits of our small organic garden: each menu offers delicious experiences and is rich in the jewels of the local undergrowth, such as mushrooms, truffles, berries and herbs.

The Monastery's pride and joy are barman Cristiano's cocktails, to be savoured in the tranquillity of the park or beside one of the many fireplaces in the indoor dining rooms.

Reaching Relais Sant'Alberico is easy: from the international airport of Bologna, simply take the A14 motorway and then the E45 motorway towards Rome and then take provincial road 130 towards Sant'Alberico.

The Relais Sant'Alberico is located between Bologna and Florence: for those visiting Italy it can be an intermediate stop on the tour between Venice and Rome, a place to rest for a few days in the absolute peace of nature.
